Aya Integral Women's Retreat

Event Date: 
February 20, 2014 (All day) - March 3, 2014 (All day)

Tracy James, MA, CPCC, has developed a retreat program that is robust and supportive while staying flexible to your individual needs. This approach to working with Ayahuasca is an integrative one, rooted in a deep respect for the traditional healing power of Ayahuasca and the Shipibo shamans, and drawing from eastern teachings of mindfulness meditation and yoga. Ayahuasca can help us to open new doors in our selves, enabling us to heal deep traumas, and to envision new and authentic ways of living. The meditation and process work with Tracy facilitate your ability to concentrate most effectively during ceremonies and release emotional and energetic debris from your body. We are committed to providing a safe and supported environment where you can journey deep within yourself, awaken and transform. There are many tools and practices that we use during the workshop to process, expand and integrate the teachings experienced in your Ayahuasca journeys. Below is a list of some of these practices that you can expect to find in the workshop.
