Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Vilcabamba, Ecuador. Vilcabamba is considered a jewel in the crown of the Southern Andean mountain range of Ecuador, about five degrees south of the equator. The climate is commonly referred to as “eternal spring”, with both a dry and wet season, though temperatures are always moderate.

Long known also as the “valley of longevity”, and "the playground of the Incas”, where Incan royalty would go for rejuvenating retreats. This theme carries forward to present times, as its healthy environment energetically supports self development and spiritual awakening.

The Vilcabamba town center is located to a 20-minute walking distance and is a social center for many travelers. You can find international cuisine along with local fare, and local markets of tropical fruits and vegetables. Vilcabamba is nestled on the edge of Podocarpus National Park, where stunning vistas, wilderness hiking, and horseback trail riding adventures await.
