Features of the Retreat
Sacred Valley: April 27 - May 4, 2019
Winding through the Sacred Valley against the backdrop of the majestic Andean Mountains, you will encounter sacred Incan sites and explore the cultural offerings of Machu Picchu, Cusco, Ollantaytambo, Pisac, Morai, and Aguas Calientes.
Ray Crist will lead daily Jaguar Yoga practice to help you ground and prepare yourself to receive the opportunity for the healing and growth you will encounter throughout the trip. You will enjoy a unique experience of practicing yoga at Machu Picchu and have the opportunity to visit the colorful markets.
amazon jungle: may 4 - 7, 2019
The descent into the magical Amazon Jungle allows you connect deeply with mother earth. On our daily jungle hikes and trips down the “Madre de Dios” river, local guides will help you learn about the abundant array of creatures and healing plants surrounding you. Daily hikes in the jungle offer the chance to learn about the medicinal qualities of plants and trees. Evenings provide the opportunity to share in a circle, meditate, or go out to the river to look at the stars. This is a unique experience to go star-gazing (there isn't any light for hundreds of miles around!).
