We are very blessed to offer a 4-Week Healing Program during the month of November 2015. This program is intended for those seeking a longer exposure to the medicine work in a smaller, more personalized environment. Although our original intention with this program was to work with guests seeking healing of physical conditions (namely, cancer and autoimmune conditions), we are also open to receiving others seeking healing for other purposes as space permits. The program will have a steady rhythm of medicine work, integration time, and supportive activities over the four week-long cycles. The medicine work will include a supportive diet, inner organ cleanses, ayahuasca ceremonies, and supplemental plant medicines depending upon the condition being treated. Group medicine (sharing) circles, therapeutic art sessions, and private consultations are scheduled to facilitate both the healing and integration processes, while ayurvedic abayanga oil self-massage, yoga, and meditation will provide support to body and minds as guests undergo this deep cleansing and healing. The general cost includes all meals, room and board, as well as all medicine and medicine work while you are a guest. (Regular Cost: $1750)
