OUR AYAHUASCA RETREAT FAMILY

 

MEET THE 


SPIRIT PLANT FAMILY

“ALONE IS ONLY THE ONE WHO CHOOSES TO BE…”
Coming to us and joining the Spirit Plant Family will guide you to opening up to yourself and the loving embrace of the world around you.

What is being a family about. It is a lifelong connection and bond that supports each and every family member in good but also, and most importantly tough times. Family goes beyond genetic connection. It is friendship as much as it is acceptance and love for one another. Here at Spirit Plant Journeys Retreats we live that authentic connection with our “Pasajeros”. Once you hit that send button on your first message to us you are in, you have found a new home, a new spiritual family that will welcome and embrace you no matter who you are. We don’t care about the faults you think you have, we don’t mind the struggle that you are in. We open our home and hearts to you and will be there to support you to make the most important changes in your life. All the people you will meet along the journey with us will be there for you.

We’ll hold your hand when things get rough and we’ll celebrate the beauty that you’ll come to experience through the plant medicines. We and our other guests will be your mirror, you will see the beauty, the love but also the pain and the struggle that each one of us deal with in our lives. You will come to see that you are not alone. We all share the common thread of humanity and as personal the matters in your life might feel someone else and most likely the person sitting right next to you has experienced some of your struggles too. We are all in this thing called “life” together. We can’t help but be connected and this is our saving grace. At Spiritplantjourneys you are welcomed by this sense of family and a system of support that will help and guide you in the most beautiful way. We can’t wait to meet you and walk along your side.

OUR SHAMANS

 

We are blessed to be working and collaborating  with a team of very reputable Healers. All our Shipibo Maestros work either alone or in group as they all come from the same tribe. In order to provide work to everyone and balance out our retreats between the masculine and the feminine energies, we take turns every retreat.

 

Our shamans work in monthly turns and depending on the group size, you will always have either 1 or 2 of our wonderful team of Maestros working with you.

We are blessed to work with some of the most respected traditional shamans and healers from the Shipibo tribe that hold in-depth knowledge of the medicine and are open heartedly willing to share their ancestral wisdom and healing to those in need. Holding so much kindness and love through their powerful ceremonies, Walter Ramirez, Orfelinda Sanancino , Francisco Vasquez and Maricela Rios have more than 37 years of experience healing with Ayahuasca and many other medicinal healing plants from the jungle.

Marta

Facillitator 

 Marta is a gifted, passionate, and highly experienced teacher and student of Yoga and the teachings of Advaita Vedanta. She has first discovered Yoga when 14 years old, and right away felt the mysterious familiarity of the practice. She began her professional training with a Jivamukti Yoga immersion, under the guidance of Yogeswari – one of the most senior teachers of the method. Marta was certified as an Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow instructor in a traditional school in Goa, India. In India, she also had the privilege to meet her Spiritual teacher Rishi Sudhir of Tiruvannamalai, a dedicated follower of Advaita Vedanta with decades of experience in Pranayama, meditation, and a depth of Vedic knowledge. Aside of the studies of Vedanta, she has also spent time at the ashram of Sri Ramana Maharshi, set at the foot of the sacred mountain Arunachala. Marta’s love for the practice of being, Yin Yoga, comes as a result of her training with Joshua Summers, an experienced teacher and one of the original students of Paul Grilly and Sarah Powers. Her studies with Joshua initiated her into the system of meridians and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Marta has also undertaken numerous meditation retreats, including the Goenka Vipassana and the Mindfulness retreats organized by the London Buddhist Centre. She has taught at diverse centers in Europe, Asia, and South America and spent almost three years serving as a 200 hr YTT instructor at Sampoorna Yoga, in India. Currently, she is based in Peru, sharing her practice with the guests of a variety of Plant Medicine healing centres, and leads personal Yoga retreats internationally. She has a passion for culture and tradition, and travels extensively in her mission to experience, grow, and develop a platform to share with others, spreading the message of love and compassion. In the last couple of years, Marta has been studying with the plant medicines and traditions of Central and South America. She has had the opportunity to study under the guidance of shamans and medicine people from various communities and traditions, including Shipibo, Mexica, Mestizo, Quechua, Lakota, and Kogi. Her studies across diverse traditions devoted to understanding both our human physicality and the pathways to Spirit have led her to understand that all paths are complementary, and ultimately lead to the very same realization of Unity. She is deeply grateful to all of her teachers, past and present, human and non-human, for shining their light under her stumbling feet.
