Ayahuasca + Yogologie 4 Night Therapeutic Retreat
Recently, our teachers in the plant kingdom have invited me to sit with them and ingest their knowledge. Drawing on 14 years of self-development, spiritual practice and therapeutic mind and bodywork both myself and the allies are offering safe spaces for people to commune with these teachers.
The therapeutic use of Ayahuasca and other helper plants includes mind + body process work and an exploration of the Field of everything that surrounds us. The team that works with this project have backgrounds that allow them to sit and hold space while others are in the process of expansion.
Why meet with the spirit of Ayahuasca?
If she calls to you, then you will know. After this you will find the right people to sit with for whatever experience you need at the time. This teacher breaks down walls and opens the doorway for deep insight into personal lives and what is needed for the collective. Sharing knowledge of other planets; races; what has been before; and, sometimes, what is likely to happen. She is generous in her offerings. Sometimes she takes us through the aspects of ourselves that limit our progress towards our potential. If we have the courage to sit with her, she will show us exactly how to move forwards. Concerned with consciousness, she brings us closer to our true nature.
The spirit of Ayahuasca welcomes adventurers that seek wisdom. Her frequency is aligned with our hearts and she wishes to show us the way back to them.
Dates + Location
12-16th of October
21-25th of November
Our retreat will run near the town of Tavira in the eastern Algarve. Our guests will need to arrange return flights to Faro Airport (FAO).
The accommodation is surrounded by natural beauty. It is a spacious, private and peaceful home, set amongst the rolling hills, with an outdoor swimming pool and terraces where you can relax and take in the fresh air and countryside views.
This time of year in the Algarve offers nearly 2 hours more sunlight than in the UK and temperatures can reach 16°C which may mean that some us may need to carry sun cream. The daytimes are certainly much warmer than in the UK but the nighttime temperature can drop to a little as 8°C. Therefore, you will need warm clothing and thick socks for New Year in the Algarve.
Please note, transfers from the airport are not included in the investment, but we are happy to help you make those arrangements – just get in touch.
Your investment to join this retreat is £675.
This includes four-night accommodation, all plant-based food, yoga, group therapeutic Field Work processing, ceremonial activities and Ayahuasca.
You can book onto the retreat by either payment in full, or with a non-refundable deposit of £300.
When booking with a deposit, the remaining balance must be paid 4 weeks before the start of the event. Please see our policy details for more information, including cancellations.
Returning retreaters and students benefit from a 10% discount.
The Human Realm
The organism of the human being comprises trillions of eukaryotic cells that collaborate and communicate together to give us this thing that we call body—so that we can experience this thing that we call life. The entity or field that is collectively known as Mind potentially works with consciousness to organise the lifeforce that creates us all. This organising force serves both as ally and teacher—in that we cannot exist without it and to live without becoming aware of it gives rise to much suffering.
The Plant Realm
The plant kingdom is also made up of eukaryotic cells; the collective sentience in this realm reflects that of the whole of Earth and beyond. The functionality of particles that surround all molecules allows information to be transmitted faster than the speed of light. Our plants are constantly taking information from our sun, from the rest of the universe, and from each other. We could say that they are receiving direct downloads moment by moment as the universe expands and reflects upon itself. Our plants therefore have the potential to be our greatest teachers; they are uninhibited by the manifestations of Mind which include language, ego, individual, familial, and cultural memory.
The Dance of the Realms
Connection to the plant kingdom can bring deep healing and connection to our Earth and the beings that walk upon her, reconciliation with self, and guidance for our understanding of the path that we came here to walk. In this retreat we travel through the four directions as we go on a journey that includes the ceremonial and therapeutic use of Ayahuasca and Rapé. The taking of the medicines happen through the night in a ceremony that includes drums, instruments, and playlists of other live ceremonies. Through the day we come together to integrate the experience with field-work processing that includes exploring the subtle signs that arise from the subconscious mind to shed light on patterns that are ready for healing; meditation and bodywork may be included in these sessions. Group yoga practices are also offered, and private sessions can be arranged upon request.

What is Field Work processing?
In the daily sessions, we work to uncover what has been shown during the night and invite people to re-connect to their consciousness through a particular kind of mind and body processing that we call Field Work. This processing draws upon a broad range of therapeutic skills and seeks to shed light upon the communication that arises from the subconscious mind; our interaction with the hidden parts of the person has the potential to elicit deep healing. We could say that the Mother of Ayahuasca connects people to the Field that surrounds us in order for them to become awake in the dream of life. The daily sessions deepen this awareness and encourage people to access this wisdom during everyday consciousness.
A plant-based diet supports our intention to cleanse the organs and free up our energy as we meet with the spirits of Ayahuasca and other helper plants. We will be curating delicious light foods that support our journeys.
