WISDOM OF THE PLANTS:
JOURNEY TO PERU
February 24 - March 4, 2021
* A 9 day journey with Anna Claire Lotti of dancingsagewellness.com/retreats
and Sondra Marie Hamilton of Osha Maize Herbal.
In the Andes it's believed that you are born with the seed of the universe, are you ready to awaken the dormant seeds within? Do you yearn to connect with the sacred Apus (mountain spirits) in the high Andes of Peru? Do you have a desire to integrate Earth-Honoring practices into your life? Allow the call of nature to connect you with the creative fire that burns so brightly in your spirit, guiding you back to stillness. Come sit with the keepers of the forest, as we call the little people or gnomes! learning the wisdom of wild medicinal plants that grow in the Andes and in North America. Sit with Q'ero Andean wisdom-keeper Luise Quispe, learning the law of Ayni - the sacred art of reciprocity between humans, nature and the universe. Our retreat will have a primary focus on using plants as medicine, remembering the medicine of Pachamama (mother earth) and receiving deep soul guidance from the elements. This wisdom can be taken back to your land and integrated into a daily practice.
