Words of Love

  • I have been sitting plant medicine ceremonies for a few years now. I have sat with many different shamans in different countries around the world. I also lead transformational work full time. All of this is to say that I know an exquisite transformational experience when I see it, and this was exactly that. I have never seen medicine work conducted with such integrity, love, ease and grace. I have never experienced such a air-tight, properly held medicine container. I brought several women with me on this retreat who had never sat ceremony before, and I could not have asked for a better introduction for them. Every single woman walked away transformed, with a deep sense of being held and belonging. The venue and the curriculum that Jane put together were absolutely beautiful and perfect. And the shamans, Carolina and Pedro, are unlike anyone I have ever met. I never want to sit ceremony with anyone else besides them again because they are just that good. This retreat was pure magic. I highly highly highly recommend for anyone interested in this kind of deep sacred work.

  • My intention for coming to the retreat was to engage in a deep cleansing process that would help heal unprocessed trauma trapped within me. While I have explored several healing modalities, nothing has compared to the level of trauma released and insight gained from sitting with Ayahuasca. The spirit of this plant medicine is intuitive and revealed deep traumas that I was never able to bring to the surface in the past. Facing my shadows was rewarded by the lightness I now feel in my body after releasing old wounds. I have an infinite amount of love and gratitude for Jane and all of the amazing warrior women I met at the retreat. Jane is a gifted healer and provided unlimited support by being fully present and available around the clock. The passion she has for assisting those seeking healing on their journey speaks volumes, and I hope that all of the souls in need of healing find a way to hear it so they can experience it for themselves.

  • This retreat was so much more than I anticipated. It’s hard to know where to begin. It was absolutely life-changing, in a deeply profound way; and beyond the personal development that occurred, I loved learning about the native cultures and healing modalities. Jane and her friends did a really good job of giving us an introduction to the sacred ways people have been relating to plants, to mountains, to everything for thousands of years. Plus, being surrounded by that many awesome women/people was just plain fun!!!! So grateful to have been a part of it.

START THE APPLICATION

Jane

Jane  Mayer is a medicine woman, guide and healer, who has studied  with  indigenous healers in the mountains of Peru, the Amazon, and the highlands of Ireland, alongside powerful teachers in the Western world.


For  many years, Spirit called to her from a well of deep emotional and physical pain, and her own pathway to wholeness and sovereignty informs  all of the medicine she offers. She has spent the past several years living between the United States and Peru, drinking Ayahuasca, and dieting Noya Rao, Bobinsana and other sacred plants.  Her deepest mission in this lifetime is to use these ancient practices  to heal the modern world. She is listening to still, small voices  everywhere.

Carolina

Carolina Dowell will be the lead facilitator for our Ayahuasca Ceremonies. We partner with  her organization, Tree of Light Retreats, which holds a safe space for  women to experience Ayahuasca in the Shipibo tradition. She lives in the  Sacred Valley of Peru with her partner and beautiful daughter.


Carolina  first began working with Ayahuasca in 2010. After her first ceremony  she knew that she had found her teacher, and in 2011 she made her first  journey to Peru to work with Shipibo healers. Her experiences were so  profound that she decided to make a big life change and move to the  jungle. She spent the next few years working closely with the medicine and other plant dietas. She received a very deep calling from the plants  to help share their wisdom and support others choosing to step onto  this path. Alongside her teacher Juana Silvano-Teco from the Mahua lineage and her partner Pedro, she has served medicine to hundreds of people since 2011.

Pedro

Pedro first began working with Ayahuasca in the Shipibo tradition in  2012 and having found his greatest teachers there, remained in the  Amazon jungle for the following 2 years where he trained and worked in a  large Ayahuasca center.


It was there that he met his partner  Carolina and experienced first hand the major transformational work that  is possible with Ayahuasca through his deep connection with plant  medicines. In this time he also witnessed and supported many  others on their healing journeys and furthered his connection and  understanding of the Shipibo culture through “plant dieta” and the  creation of music projects with the healers.


Pedro is currently  based in the Sacred Valley, Peru with his family and continues to study  these ancient healing practices through regular dietas with Noya Rao and  other Master Plants. He feels truly honored to co-facilitate with his  beautiful partner and to share this incredible healing tradition, safely  and lovingly with the world.

Gigi

Gisela  is a loving and heart-centered Peruvian woman who started her journey  with the medicine 9 years ago in the Peruvian Jungle. She started and  continues to learn within the Mahua family lineage. She  has done many traditional plant dietas and continues to deepen her  relationship with Ayahuasca through ceremonies and retreats. 

In 2015 she  started to work as a facilitator on ayahuasca workshops. The medicine  had a big impact on her, so she decided to listen and follow her heart’s  calling for the medicine more and more and quit her full-time job in a  business company in Lima and moved to the Sacred Valley, where she  co-founded a holistic Montessori Kindergarten for small kids, where she  taught art and music to the children.


She is enjoying life and happily exploring the medicine path, and runs an integration center, Soul House Integration, with her husband, Richy.

Julian + Valerio

Julian and Valerio Sasari are brothers from a large Quechua family outside of Cusco. They are medicine men: their knowledge of and intimate relationship with the mountains of the Sacred Valley is truly unparalleled. When they aren't working with plants and mountains and medicine, they run a travel company (highly recommended) called Runa Nan Travel.
