Shamans have used sacred plant medicine worldwide for thousands of years to heal, awaken, and elevate consciousness. The plant they meditate in ceremony with comes from the depths of the Amazon and is revered as the mother of all master plant teachers. It has been used extensively to elicit spiritual revelations, heal past traumas, and reverse addictive behaviors.
One ceremony sipping this mystical brew has been described as 10 years of meditation compressed into one night, plus the deepest physical and emotional cleanse of your life. It sparks the beginning of a powerful journey to the center of your heart and the depths of the cosmos.
Creating a safe space for healing is Epic Living Retreats’ number one priority. They work exclusively and very close with a local shaman and group of facilitators with over 35 years of experience. Musicians and assistants accompany the shaman during ceremonies to offer the most personal attention to all of our guests.
