Have you worked with Ayahuasca, but feel worse than before you drank; feeling stuck, isolated, disconnected or unsupported? Do you feel it’s time to let go of your suffering and invite in new possibilities? Do you want to understand the Ayahuasca drinking process more deeply and contextualise your experience? Are you ready to move forward, make lasting transformations and create the awesome juicy life that you are deep down longing for?

Then join Sophia and Cynthia for an empowering integration retreat, to finally reap the benefits from your Ayahuasca experiences and even more....

Ayahuasca Integration Retreat

Girona, Spain

4-9 June

2019

Walking through the lush Catalonian landscape, listening to the river trickling by and the birds singing overhead....

…you contemplate a beautiful day of self discovery, learning, laughing and playing with beautiful souls, and diving deep into a gentle process in which you feel guided and held...

We often say that we want change. But, creating and sustaining transformation in our lives can be both difficult and scary.

 

Many of us have drunk Ayahuasca, hoping that this will be the ultimate solution. To get permanent healing, release from addictions, traumas or self-sabotaging patterns or to discover enlightenment.

Only to find, that when we get back home, our perspectives have shifted, but our lives haven’t changed...

 

Are you ready to integrate the insights and lessons from your ceremonies?

 

Is it now time for you to let go of past patterns and move forward into a new version of yourself and your life?

 

Come and join us for 5 days of connection, nature, food and profound yet playful ways to rediscover YOUR Wholeness.

 

 

This unmissable retreat has been specifically designed for YOU to get the most out of the Ayahuasca experiences you have already had, and to get you moving in the direction that you want to go in. 

Using our wide ranging knowledge from years of practical experience in our personal healing journeys and from helping others;

 

We have created an epic program that will put a spring in your step and help you leap forward in your life!

Tapping into Your Inner Wisdom

Sophia is dedicated to help people fully integrate their medicine experiences and bring the lessons, transformations and teachings of the plants into their grounded every day lives. 

Sophia believes that the biggest transformations occur not in the Jungle or ceremony space, but back home, when trying to put the new ways of being into practice. 

She was born in the UK, and has an honours degree in Ancient History and has travelled all over the world, working as a therapist in many alternative modalities, which reflect her love of bringing ancient wisdom teachings into the modern world. 

With her integration clients, she uses a number of different therapeutic tools including PSYCH-K, Counselling, Crystal Therapy and Shamanic Healing. It is her belief that all wisdom lies within each of us and so she specialises in allowing people to tap into their own inner resources to understand and work with their medicine experiences in order to bring further growth and healing and fully embodied integration.

Helping You Unwrap Your Gifts

Cynthia is 44 years young and lives in The Netherlands. She holds a MSc degree in Business Administration and worked as a business consultant in organisational change processes. Since 2011 she works as a self-employed trauma sensitive life-coach and integrative therapist and is acknowledged by her national public health care system.  

  

In 2016 Cynthia immersed herself into the Shipibo curanderismo tradition during a retreat in the Amazon jungle. Her aim was to restore her health by healing the remnants of a chronic illness, in which she greatly succeeded. In 2017 she returned to the Amazon for an Ayahuasca Curandero Initiation Course, where Cynthia and Sophia met each other. Cynthia frequently visits the jungle to deepen her study. She recently worked as a guest facilitator for the Ayahuasca Foundation’s four week Healing Empowerment Course in the new Riosbo Ayahuasca Research Center. 

 

It is Cynthia’s mission to facilitate people in finding wholeness within themselves, and to support their healing from trauma and life’s adversities. She works with the presupposition that every wound also holds important gifts, which she helps to find, unwrap and integrate. During her own integration phase after the training her plant teachers called to shift her focus of her plant medicine work towards facilitating the integration processes. And this is where Sophia and Cynthia were propelled into the making of Ayahuasca! Now what?  

  

Cynthia brings a treasure trove of tools and methodologies. She was trained in Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Trauma Life Work (Peter Levine), Systemic Work (e.g. Family Constellations, Bert Hellinger), hot (hatha) yoga and Plant Medicine. She works with people’s unconscious parts, because this is where the greatest potential for healing lies dormant. Tapping into that area can be very effective, since it is normally out of scope for many people and nevertheless determines 95% of their behaviour in daily life. She guides her clients through this landscape with warmth, confidence, lightness, determination and a touch of playfulness.
