During this retreat, you will be staying in Sacred Valley, Peru with the option of a private or shared room.

Through this retreat, you will also be supporting a service project with the Ninos del Sol Foundation. Niños del Sol is home to a lively family of 23 Peruvian children in a beautiful home on a large lush magical piece of land. These children came to Ninos del Sol alone in the world, orphaned or abandoned. Nearly all of them have been abused and arrived with trauma of some sort.

Viviana and Avishai, the directors and caretakers of Ninos del Sol, are providing these orphans with a home, a family, education, organic food, and a chance at a future. iThrive Yoga’s work will be with Ninos del Sol on a special, customized project based on the current needs of the organization. There is a plan to maximize the group resources to improve the lives and opportunities for growth of this beautiful family. In the afternoons after school, you will have the chance to connect with the children.

Ceremony

Pago a la Tierra or Despacho

The Incans honor Pachamama or Madre Tierra or also known as Mother Earth as the divine protector and provider of life. This shamanic ritual invokes Madre Tierra to honor her for all that she gives. It is a traditional ceremony of gratitude and personal blessing.

Shamanic journey

Experience alchemical transmutation, chakra alignment, the awakening of awareness, and intuition and a greater sense of connection as you go on a shamanic journey with the Peruvian guides.

Musical shamanic healing

You will gather for an evening of music and healing with Peruvian sound healers. This one of a kind experience is a deep meditative journey of healing and visions.

Sacred treks

Apu Chicon hike

Apu Chicon is a sacred mountain that sits at the top of the Chicon River Valley. It is one of the tallest in the valley reaching nearly 16,000 feet. This spectacular display of nature is capped with glaciated peaks and underlying native Keuena Forest filled with ancient trees. You will trek through this enchanted forest with views of the glacier. It is a perfect place to explore, rest, meditate, and reflect.

Moray and the salt mines

Visit one of Peru’s most well preserved ruins sitting on a high plateau of over 11,000 feet. This area is home to a highly sophisticated Incan agricultural system with stunning views of the Sacred Valley. From here, you will hike on to the Mineras de Sal, a spectacular natural wonder. The journey will take you along an age-old crossroad where time stands still and the scenery is epic. This passage is still the preferred route for local indigenous Quechua.

Yoga

A well balanced and intentional yoga practice can leave you stronger, and more comfortable in your own skin, as well as developing confidence or the willingness to try new things.

Perhaps you cultivate patience, or you become more mindful and aware of the moment, while deepening your personal practice. iThrive offers the members excellent instruction, while providing students with a sanctuary from daily pressure, as well as a place to access many options to achieve optimal wellness.

Testimonials

  • Review by Maggie

    "I truly feel so grateful that everything lined up for me to go! It was such a unique experience that could never be recreated again. I loved the location, the food, and having such experienced and knowledgeable teachers (both John and Sarah). The packets of information were a great aid to the learning and getting an aloe plant to work with definitely heightened the experience. Overall, I came back with a stronger connection to nature, myself, and the community around me. I definitely felt like I was on a higher vibration. Oh, and I love the air plant necklace."

    "The entire weekend was inspiring and insightful. The retreat house was magnificent with beautiful views of the water, and a great layout to allow for group intimacy and separateness[ if desired].Jon was a compelling teacher who invited the group to embrace difficult concepts which he made accessible and understandable. He was always available for individual discussions if questions arose. I appreciated his passion and the depth of knowledge about the subject. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Paige, went out of her way to respond to each individual 's dietary needs and incorporate them into her menu. The attention to detail in that regard was extraordinary. The paddle boarding and kayaking made for a welcome break, and allowed members a great opportunity to metabolize the complex concepts they were integrating.The weekend flowed beautifully. It was restorative and uplifting."

    "I knew David when he was in his corporate role, when he was known as the bulldog. His persistence and go get ‘em attitude served him to lead a successful real estate career. He was the guy you wanted to have a cigar and a scotch with after a long day’s work. I also had the pleasure of traveling with him through Colombia after he decided to break away from the daily grind to embark on his transformational journey. Not only was David an amazing, highly competent and engaging host, but the perseverance I saw behind the office desk transformed seamlessly into a truly inspirational soul searching guide. He’s still the guy I would like to have a cigar and a scotch with - right after a nice long yoga or meditation session."

    "During his stay with us at the Peace Retreat, David was always enthusiastic and engaging. He was both serious about his yoga practice yet light-hearted and fun to be around. I look forward to working with David again in the near future."

    "I began working with David as a healer and mentor. Over the years I have seen David’s unshakable commitment to working on healing himself and mastering the techniques that would serve him in passing his passion and his skills onto others. David has always been willing to dig deep within himself to get to ever greater levels of self-realization. What has emerged is an authentic, grounded and wholly compassionate individual with a true love of his life and his work and the skills and techniques to guide others through their own transformational journeys. Now I have the pleasure of working side by side with David to help him turn his dream and his work into a reality."

    "Kudos David! The Ranch in Carbondale is beautiful, calming, and an amazing place to open your heart and feel alive. From meditative hikes to group workshops, organic and local foods to soaking in the Jacuzzi under the stars the retreat left me feeling rejuvenated, aware, and with a higher understanding on bringing my aspirations and goals to fruition. David is a great soul and the Life Force Project will certainly bring you one step closer towards enlightenment."
