An opportunity to be deeply nourished by the wisdom of nature with plant medicine ceremonies and supportive integration practices. Ceremonies are guided by highly experienced facilitators and complemented with ample time for rest and reflection. Organic meals, hikes in the rainforest, trips to the ocean, optional yoga and meditation classes, and individual counseling included.
This unique retreat was designed by Celina De Leon and draws upon her extensive training as an apprentice in the Kamentsa indigenous lineage of the Putumayo of Colombia and her foundation in yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda.
Celina is a spiritual guide, healer, mother, and weaver of ancient and modern wisdom. Her training as a ceremony facilitator draws upon 19 years of experience with Amazonian plant medicine and a foundation in yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda. As an apprentice of Taita Juan Agreda Chindoy from the Kamentsa indigenous community of the Putumayo of Colombia her ceremonial practice is grounded in a traditional lineage and amidst that she leads with a very feminine approach. Her gifts lie in her intuitive ability to meet individuals where they are at and to hold a non-judgmental space for healing and transformation. She is also a Stanford grad, has a Masters in Divinity from the Graduate Theological Union, and has received professional training in spiritual care through the art of chaplaincy. Her greatest inspiration and influence comes from being the mother of two daughters.
Rob Weber is a contemporary medicine-man, musician, eco-community steward, and father of two beautiful children.
After graduating from Stanford University over twenty years ago, Rob got called to the path of yoga and meditation, when he also began vision-questing in the American Southwest and making pilgrimages into the Andes mountains and Amazon Forest, working with traditional healers, participating in countless ceremonies, and traveling deep into the wilderness within. These travels eventually led him in 2005 to create an eco-community home in Bali, where the Balinese culture of devotion has continually softened and opened his heart.
In ceremony, he works primarily through his music, intuitively guided to share songs that sing directly to the heart of the moment. He has a unique ability to anchor healing energies of love, inner peace, and sacred celebration through his voice, guitar, charango, ngoni, native flutes, and other ceremonial instruments.
His path has been filled with encounters and studies with remarkable traditional ayahuasqueros throughout the western Amazon and Andean regions, including Secoya, Shipibo-Conibo, Cofan, and Kamentsa elders. Likewise, he has had the privilege to train and serve alongside masterful contemporary facilitators including Darpan, Diego Palma, and Jarah Tree.
He is also the co-founder of the BaliSpirit Festival, an international transformational festival renowned as a life-changing experience. He releases music under the artist name Raio.
