Here at Corazon de Pachamama we help people restore harmony between their mind, body and spirit with the use of plant medicines such as Ayahuasca, San Pedro and Wilka. We host small and safe plant medicine retreats in Ecuador with trusted, experienced healers. Through a process of self-exploration, guided by ancestral medicine and connection with nature, you will have the opportunity to learn more about yourself, grow and heal. You will learn lessons and tools that will improve your daily life, relationships, and expand your worldview. We bring each guest in like family. We are an intimate center, so we know each guest personally. We love to teach them about the culture and show them the beautiful nature here, and are available to talk before, during and after retreats about their experiences.
Part of the funds that are collected with the retreats go to the reforestation of Ayahuasca in the same place where we harvest it, Gualaquiza. Additionally, a portion of the funds go to helping abandoned dogs in the street, as this is a major issue in Ecuador. We help to provide food for the municipal shelter and other organizations that are dedicated to the rescue of these animals and cover medical and veterinary expenses for sick or injured animals.
We also have an apprenticeship program for those who feel called to this vocation. There is a great need in society for people to take on this role with good, proper training. Folks will learn techniques for healing and get the opportunity to work with Ayahusaca, San Pedro and Wilka multiple times per week with Miguel and Katie, and other respected curanderos in Ecuador.
