A retreat with 3 Ceremonies to cleanse and raise our Consciousness
The ceremonies are guided by Yama Voorhorst. She will transmit energy and healing through the icaros*, limpias (healings), music and sounds.
(*) Icaros are shamanic spirit songs that call upon the healing plants and other spirits to help cleanse and heal our bodies and souls.
“Soft breathing sounds, humming, whistling… enchanting rhythms… rustling leaves … subtle sparkling tingling seeds… icaros calling upon the maestros and spirits… heart-opening voices… the chacapa… wind chimes…. singing bowls and bells… the magic mulity-layered voices of the gong… Yama brings the sounds and vibration of the jungle with its many helpers and in every cell in you the Universe starts opening up, showing you what you need to see…”
This retreat is for you, if you feel ready to look deeply into yourself, wake up and raise your awareness to a next level by diving deeply into other dimensions, facing what needs to be faced and taking responsibility for whatever you encounter. You have to realize that partaking in these ceremonies can potentially be a life changing experience of immense significance, since the process allows for a deep release of destructive emotional and mental patterns, as well as an influx of life force that is both healing and inspirational. But no matter how well you are guided during your journeys, remain aware that it is ultimately yourself who is responsible for the way you relate to any challenges you may encounter – during and after the experience – and how you garner the benefits.
The shamanic rituals and mediations can introduce you to a new Universe of possibilities, offering you the chance to heal by changing your mind patterns, show you where you are stuck and allow you to draw from new potential. But it needs to be understood and it all comes down to your willingness to deeply look inside and to your integration afterwards.
This process may show you where your life is not working and where you are creating unhealthy relationships, patterns and outcomes, but if that is what you choose to continue afterwards, it’s up to you. Nobody will do the work for you. You may be shown the roots of your illness, but if you choose to stay ill, no one will intervene against your will and ‘fix’ you anyway. The real ‘work’ comes after the ceremonies, in the doing that follows the ‘enlightenment’. It’s up to you. But what is the aim of your work and investments, if not to create change where you feel it’s needed – and who can create that change but you?
In these retreats we consciously choose to work in groups only, because experience shows us that we create the best healing in this way – since we are all interconnected. We mirror eachother, challenge and trigger eachother, we even heal and release for eachother. We all do our own part in a healing that is much bigger than our own personal work. And the healing we can do as a group, as one big organism, is amazingly beautiful and supportive.
Having said all of this, we want to highlight that this is certainly not for everybody. You have to be ready to own your shit and your light, within a beautiful carrying group setting. If this resonates with you, then you are very welcome to journey with us!
The moment you decide to take part in these ceremonies, the proces inside of you starts. Take your time to ask yourself why you want to be there, what is your intention.
In the weeks before the retreat you will get more information with guidelines for a special diet that cleanses your body, to prepare yourself for the ceremonies. It helps you to let go of all the old patterns that don’t serve you anymore. Our maestro says it this way: “If you invite your Mother to your house, you don’t invite her in a big mess. You show respect by cleaning up and then invite her in your temple”. Clean up before you invite her.
