Psycho-Spiritual Growth Retreats
By combining the ceremonial experiences of Native Peoples from the Amazonian Basin and the methodology of the humanist approach to psychology, these three-day, two-night retreats have as their purpose to provide a Transcendent experience of the personality (an encounter with the Spirit), then to work on the challenges that must be transformed at an everyday level.
They have been devised for people lacking any previous experience of traditional Amazonian technologies; and also for experienced people who wish to develop their learning.
They consist of three ceremonies: an adaptation purge and two ATM ceremonies. Start is on the morning of the first day and the end is by mid-morning of the third day.
Diet is vegetarian, while the natural environment, far from centres of population, offers different accommodation and transportation options, depending on each location.
That each participant:
Widen his/her awareness of him/herself, other people and the cosmos around us.
Achieve a better connection with his/her being and, through it, be able to attain a better acceptance, understanding and transformation of his/her circumstances.
