LOTUS VINE JOURNEYS - retreat OPTIONS

Lotus Vine Journeys' Peru "Ayahuasca Plant Medicine and Meditation Retreats" are offered in 2016 & 2017 as a 14 day retreat. (8 ceremonies). Our dedicated staff have had extensive experience in running these immersive Ayahuasca and Meditation retreat programs for a number of years.
 

INTENSIVE AND TRANS-FORMATIVE

For those prepared to dedicate themselves and take advantage of such an intensive program and do the work', Lotus Vine Journeys can provide you with an exceptional, transformative and often life-changing opportunity for accelerated learnings.

EMPHASIS ON MEDITATION TEACHINGS

The strong emphasis we place on meditation practice and Buddhist mindfulness teachings throughout the retreat is a crucial part of assisting our guests to process and attach meaning to the often profound insights typically received from Ayahuasca medicine. Meditation teachings can also be used a valuable momentum tool to help with the integration of these learnings when participants return home and life returns to 'normal'.
