8 Days & 7 Nights

Coming into Wholeness
Ayahuasca Healing Retreat

This 8-day ayahuasca & peyote retreat offers an immersion in deep plant-spirit healing. Two (grandmother) ayahuasca ceremonies, 1 sweat-lodge ceremony with (grandfather) peyote and daytime healing practices are complemented with breathwork classes, and powerful methods of self-awareness designed to support you as you integrate your healing work.

During this powerful and life transformational week, we will be working with trained healers who provide deep levels of healing through multiple ayahuasca ceremonies, a sweat lodge with peyote ceremony, healing songs, a cacao ceremony and sacred music ceremonies. 

Coming to our ayahuasca retreat in Costa Rica, you will be surrounded by the healing energies, forces, elements and spirits of the jungle. You will be guided by conscious wisdom keepers of these transformational medicines and wrapped with love and support by your facilitators.

 

Our retreat center for the week is situated in a co-creating community known as Florestral, that is made up of an international group of permanent residents who share communal land. It has its own community council and maintains the development of the land and its projects. 

 

The sacred plant of grandmother ayahuasca is grown on the land and tended to by intentional community members and medicine teachers. You will be given a tour of the land and be introduced to the plant of grandmother ayahuasca in her raw form. Situated on the land are 11 cabins, a beautiful fire temple, a sweat lodge, a unique sacred sound studio, and access to beautiful creeks and trails.

Meet your medicine teacher for ceremony...

Meet founder and medicine facilitator at Florestra, Vismay Amrit.

Vismay was born in Israel and left the conventional path at a young age to pursue a higher state of existence. He lived and studied in India before meeting the great plant teacher ayahuasca and moving to Brazil to go deep into the medicine world. After years of study, the call arrived to share the knowledge and healing with the world. Vismay has now been facilitating plant medicine ceremonies for the past 25 years.

During his time in India, Vismay stayed at the Haidakhan Ashram where he received the vision and promise of the exact location in Florestral, which is located on a beautiful hilltop overlooking the Diamante falls (the tallest waterfall in the country). 

Vismay will be facilitating both our ayahuasca and peyote ceremonies alongside a team of professionally trained staff.

Florestral sits on sacred land of beauty and healing and speaks to those who are ready and willing to listen.

Located in the Southern Pacific mountainous zone of Costa Rica, the retreat center sits on an elongated-bowl-shaped valley below the steep Tinamaste Ridge and the gorgeous Diamante-waterfall shimmering in the distance.

This stretch of land offers privacy since there is no traffic noise or neighbors nearby. It is accessible both to the city of San Isidro, with all amenities, necessary supplies, medical care etc. only a 25-minute drive away and as well as the beautiful Pacific coastline with stunning beaches only 40-minutes away.
