Accommodation

During this retreat, you will be staying at the Flowing River Resort, tucked deep within an oxygen-rich, cloud forest of northern Ecuador. At The Flowing River Resort, it is their mission to offer a quiet place for deep relaxation and renewal. Their imperative is to offer a safe haven for holistic thinkers to come together, share their stories, and together find peace within the beautiful landscape of the Ecuadorian highlands.

Furthermore, they believe that when immersed in Mother Nature, her omnipotence acts as a powerful healer. Local guides will take you into the beauty of the surrounding jungle, where you can trek to waterfalls and zip-line across the jungle canopy. In addition, you will be connected to the native culture by way of visiting local markets, listening to live music and explore the El Quetzal de Mindo’s Chocolate Factory.
