Amazonian Ceremonies with the Vine of the Soul
We are honoured to receive all guests and believe we will take care of you with true love, devotion and surrender for a most transformative experience.
The duration of the tour is 12 hours; it includes a one hour introductory talk and meditation, 4 -hour Amazonian shamanic ceremony, 4 hours sleep in shared gender specific dorm, a small meal and two hour sharing-circle to process and integrate the experience.
We can pick you up from San Miguel Church in La Paz, Bolivia and then go to Allkamari Retreat Center -it is a 30 minute ride into a beautiful andean setting in front of Mt Illimani – or we can pick you up from the town of Rurrenbaque and go 20 minutes upriver to Wizard’s Mt Healing and Retreat Center.
Once you are picked up by our team you will be either in the magic Mt. Illimani at 13000 feet, in front of the most majestic beautiful snow peaks of a sacred mountain in a place where people are always making burnt offerings, or in Rurrenabaque’s Cerro del Brujo which is also a sacred magical site honoured by the natives for thousands of years as a wonderful place to connect with a very powerful and ancient source of knowledge and healing. When you arrive you will settle in to your dormitories and maybe rest for an hour to prepare for the ceremony. Then we will gather at our the temple where the shaman will carefully explain to you for maybe an hour or an hour and a half whatever you need to know in order to be best prepared for the ceremony as well as listen to whatever your own questions and desires are in order to serve you better. Then the ceremony will begin and the lights will go out, and for about four hours you will be sitting in a magickal realm listeing to the sacred chants of the shaman the sacred instruments being played, and the shaman with the sounds reeling the energy will help you confront the traumas of your past and to release many of them while also opening you up to receive inspiration, guidance, healing, solace, empowerment and blessings for your life. So four four hours you will undergo a magical mystical journey that will most likely transform your life for the better while also helping you to face your demons and get rid of them, so you may walk lightly upon the earth as a better human being better able to serve. Once the ceremony is finished we will go back into our dorms and rest for about four hours and then share a small meal and gather again at the temple for a talking circle where people will share with one another what they have experienced and the shaman will also give you feedback helping everybody to process and integrate the experience in a healthy way and give completion to it so that people are ready to reintegrate themselves to their daily routine. From then onwards you will be taken to the drop off point.
During the tour we will participate in a traditional Amazonian shamanic healing ceremony. We will be in the dark, sitting around the periphery of temple enclosure, while undertaking a soul journey that will purify the body, heal the emotions and traumas and enlighten the mind with deeply-felt insight and orientation through the shamanic chants, instruments, tobacco blowing , etc.
Due to the nature of the ceremony, no meal will be served the night prior to it. We will, however, provide a nutritious breakfast to regain our energy the morning after, and any further meals for those who desire to book more days. Our lodge at Wizard Mt. has beds with mosquito nets and running water but no electricity, to preserve the natural rhythm of the jungle. A gentle silence permeates the place, for it has the ideal conditions to listen to ourselves. The principal requirement that any person taking this day trip should commit to is to surrender the ego in love and devotion. Since the healing ceremony takes place in the heart of the jungle, where the longest mountain range meets the largest rainforest, we also recommend you to bring mosquito repellent and water-proof clothes.

Interested people should write to us describing their country and we will send them the cost.)
