Indigenous North-American Peyote Retreat – Colorado Springs

With Wikan Wakan Wie, Eva Evers and Sarah Howat

September 13 - 16, 2024

During this retreat, a Lakota medicine woman will share ancient wisdom, stories and ceremony that echo through the ages. These teachings will serve as a guiding light, leading us back to the essence of our being, reminding us of the profound connection we share with the universe.

THE LOCATION

We will be staying in a beautiful, private property immersed in nature at the outskirts of Colorado Springs, CO. The center is an intimate place with lots of natural light and an open communal space. The ceremony will take place inside by the fire place surrounded by the majesty of the natural surroundings outside. Amenities include hot tub and lake access.


WHAT TO EXPECT
At the heart of this retreat lies a traditional peyote medicine ceremony, a sacred space where intentions will be set to remember who we are. This ceremony is a gateway to our authentic selves, a profound exploration of the spirit within. Through ancient rituals, we will cleanse, heal, and reconnect with the natural rhythms that guide us.
.

The ceremony begins after sunset as we gather around a central fire. Throughout the night, sacred songs are shared, accompanied by the traditional water drum and rattle. We focus on the fire, seeking guidance and healing. The ceremony concludes at sunrise.

 

We take a holistic approach to optimal wellbeing and spiritual development designed to deepen your experience and to support with the integration of the transformations and healings gained into day-to-day life aimed at fostering long-lasting results. During the retreat, we use several modalities to enhance your experience, such as movement, breath work and meditation. To help you feel at your optimal best organic and locally sourced (where possible) meals are included during your stay with us.
.

Each participant will be assessed before entering the program through a compulsory application form and screening. Due to the powerful nature of these sacred ceremonies and the impact that others sharing the space can have, we limit this retreat to 10 selected people.

YOUR EXPERIENCE
Recognizing the varied experiences that peyote can bring, we acknowledge that it affects each person differently, with some reporting mind-altering and spiritual encounters, while others feel a deep connection with nature and themselves. Indigenous traditions have long used peyote for physical and emotional healing, as well as seeking guidance and support from the spiritual realm. Following ceremonies, people often report healings, emotional release, empowerment, and a renewed sense of purpose.
.
INDIGENOUS CULTURES & PRESERVATION
Peyote is a sacred plant medicine deeply intertwined with the cultural and spiritual practices of indigenous traditions in Mexico and North America. Through generations, indigenous communities have held peyote in a place of deep respect and honor. It is not simply a plant, but a sacred teacher, a conduit to the spiritual realm, and a source of profound healing and guidance. The ceremonies involving peyote are regarded as sacred acts that nurture spiritual growth, foster connection with nature, and promote communal unity.
.
By supporting indigenous cultures through our reciprocity efforts, we acknowledge and honor the relationship between them, the sacred medicine peyote and the outside world, striving to create a harmonious cycle that benefits all. We, also, support preservation projects for this sacred plant medicine.
.

We are honoured that you have chosen to take this journey with us, and we look forward to sharing this transformative experience with you.
