12 Days Deep Amazon and Yoga Retreats in Peru

  • Amazon, Peru

Overview

Deep Amazon and Yoga Retreats in Peru

Join us and immerse yourself in the magic of ceremony with a powerful native Amazonian shaman. Choose to experience either ten or fourteen days with the sacred healing and visionary medicine, Ayahuasca. The transformations are amazing. We encourage you to come and experience the potency of these ceremonies and truly become all you can be.

Amazon Jungle

In the Amazon Jungle we awaken and reconnect with the earth and the deepest part of our being as we travel down a winding river deep into the Amazon. Here we enter what the Inka call Ukhupacha (the underworld), the place of intuition, dreams and the subconscious. We journey deeply with the powerful healing teacher plant and medicine, Ayahuasca, the sacred vine of the soul. These journeys can be very strong as the medicine cleanses and purifies us and guides us with awareness and visions.

Our magical journey together begins in the Amazon jungle town of Puerto Maldonado. From here we travel for two hours by motorized canoe down the Madre de Dios River to our jungle lodge where a beautiful lunch will be waiting for us.

After lunch we have time to relax and explore our surroundings before dinner and our evening opening/setting of intentions ceremony. During our time in the jungle we will have the opportunity to experience deep powerful traditional Ayahuasca ceremonies and despacho (offering) ceremonies to Pachamama (Mother Earth).

On the days following our plant medicine ceremonies we will share together as a group to review our intentions and process our experiences from the evening’s ceremony. We stay in a beautiful Amazonian lodge which will be our home during our adventurous days and magical nights.

This well organized and facilitated venue will cater to all our needs during our jungle stay allowing us to relax and fully immerse ourselves in the transformative aspects of our stay. You’ll stay in luxurious jungle bungalows, each with a private bathroom. There are hammocks by the Madre de Dios River, a beautiful indoor swimming pool and various lounge areas.

We will also enjoy daily hatha yoga, meditation and deep yoga relaxation, relaxing mud baths, river swims, guided jungle walks and heavenly hammock naps while nourishing on healthy local food and fresh Amazon fruit juices.

Tanya Adams

Tanya is an experienced retreat facilitator. She has co-coordinated several yoga teacher training retreats and along with Gerard, has facilitated the Earth Spirit Yoga Wisdom Keepers Retreats in Peru and Australia for a decade. Many Earth Spirit Yoga Wisdom Keepers Retreat groups have journeyed deep in the Amazon Jungle with Ayahuasca and felt their spirits soar in the Andes Mountains with the Q'ero shamans.

Tanya started her yoga practice as a child at the age of eight and has more than 21 years of experience as a yoga and meditation teacher.She has trained in and taught various styles of yoga and has been teaching yoga full time since 1996. Her work over the years has included children's yoga, pre-natal and post natal classes, young women's groups, yoga for stress management, gentle yoga for illness, corporate yoga classes, fitness center classes, yoga teacher training programs and retreats.

She also co-founded the Melbourne Integral Yoga Centre in 2000 and lived for some time at Satchidananda Ashram in the United States.Tanya is dedicated to her own yoga practice and to her students and believes that the practice of yoga and meditation can greatly aid in the process of healing and transformation with Ayahuasca.

Tanya first experienced Ayahuasca a decade ago and has been assisting people in Ayahuasca ceremonies ever since. She has journeyed with Ayahuasca herself countless times and assists in the ceremonies with translation and support (the Maestro speaks only Spanish and Quechua). Her experience with Ayahuasca ceremonies and as a teacher of yoga and meditation allow her to easily help guide others through these powerful journeys and later, to process their experiences to gain even deeper insights and awareness.

She has helped guide many people through their deep journeys with Ayahuasca and is a skilled and nurturing presence in these powerful ceremonies.Tanya is dedicated to helping others to move through their healing stories and transform their lives in a sacred and powerful way and to inspiring a new more Earth honoring vision of the world.

Gerard Williams

Gerard has acquired the much needed experience to successfully support and facilitate the powerful and transformative retreats provided by Earth Spirit Yoga.

Gerard spent 20 years in the sales and marketing profession specializing in electronics and ran his own very successful company. He developed many skills in business management, development and presentation that provide the necessary elements to enable a business to meet the needs of its customers.

With ayoga practice spanning more than 41 years and 18 years of integrating Medicine Ways knowledge, Gerard brings vital wisdom and understanding to empower those seeking the profound healing, life changes and awareness available during Earth Spirit Yoga retreats.

Gerard began his yoga practice with the renowned yogi Baba Muktananda and today spends significant time each year under the guidance of Baba's successor Mahamandaleshwar Swami Nityanand Saraswati of Shanti Mandir.

Most years over the last 2 decades Gerard has closely supported and assisted chiefs of the Great Sioux Nation with ceremonies and global peace initiatives through NGOs and in recent times has developed a sustainable building program on the Northern Plains Reservations.

It was 16 years ago with special invitation from the Shaur Nation of the Ecuadorian Amazon Jungle that Gerard first experienced the power and insights of the magical teacher plant Ayahuasca. Inspired and guided, Gerard continued a deep relationship with the wisdom of this medicine and has been an apprentice maestro in Peru now for a decade.

Gerard has been working closely with members of the Andean medicine people of the Q'eros community for a decade and completed more formal studies in their ways.

Gerard firmly believes that real understanding of any tradition lies in the first hand experience gained by being with the keepers of the tradition and that formalized courses and workshops minimize true insight into the wisdom and prefers only to mention the experiential aspects of his training and involvement with traditional ways.

    "The whole trip was just exemplary and beyond what I could have wished for. The combined experience, wisdom and love of Gerard and Tanya and then the Maestros and guides just blew me away. The trip turned out to be so much more than simply a guided package holiday it was really as if we had been blessed and granted the experience to feel connection, love and the warmth of humanity all in one holiday! I really have felt the power and magic of the healing ceremonies during the trip and I am still being guided by what I felt and what I came to know and see about myself and life. In recognizing my true nature and making a commitment to honoring it and to following the direction that it offers me I have decided to change paths in life and to go in new directions."

    "Travelling to Peru with Tanya and Geraldo was a last minute decision for me. Something called me there at a time when everything else around me was falling away.So it was a huge personal journeyat a very vulnerable timebut every step of the way Tanya and Geraldo were there, ensuring all of the planning and logistics were under control so I could go deep with the plant medicines and all that Peru has to offer. Its like they had done the groundwork in their previous trips so that we could all just jump on board and be safely delivered to the most potent and powerful sites and experiences of Peru. I have never experienced such rapid and deep transformation both inside and out.One other fantastic thing I loved about Earth Spirit Yoga is that it rekindled my commitment to a daily yoga practice, and to connecting with the Earth and spirit world for guidance and support. Plus, I also made life-long friends and shared amazing experiences with my true tribe."
