5, 7 or 10 days Retreat "Yoga Shamanism & Surf" in Mompiche, Ecuador
With the sponsorship of Durga´s Tiger School, we will have a Yoga and Shamanism Camp / Retreat at Mompiche Beach in the north coast of Ecuador, close to Esmeraldas.
We open a space and time near the ocean where Spiritual Healing can take place.
A great opportunity for those interested in working on their consciousness in contact with wild nature.
Type of Event
sunday and saturdays afternoons available for activities on choice between:
excursions, massage, surf class, personal yoga class
This will be a great opportunity for all the people interested in working on their own consciousness, progressively unfolding the information that lies within each person´s soul and sharing these experiences with people who are in the same quest.
The place and surroundings of Mompiche, are filled with lush and abundant vegetation, rivers and waterfalls, and you can discover the flora and fauna of the tropical forest all around, in your free time.
The Retreat has been developed as a workshop with theoretic and practice elements. We will work with ancient wisdom to integrate and experience the yogic and shamanic state of consciousness in our daily life experience. This retreat is a great combination of meditation, tantra yoga, hata yoga, massage and shamanism from different shamanic traditions around the world.
Classes will start early in the mornings and they are going to be over around the sunsets with time in the middle to enjoy the beach and surfing. There is going to be a roof for our classes, just in case there is too much sunlight or we have some occasional rains.

With our shamanism classes we want to introduce people in the shamanic experience that for us means to get in a deep relation with nature and with ourselves as human beings.
We will do an introduction to the shamanic world and we are going to work with different techniques and knowledges coming from different tribes.
The shamanism classes are always a mix of theoretical knowledge and shamanic practice. We need to understand how the shamanic techniques we are using work and where they come from before we can use them in an appropriated way.
So there will be the possibility to find your spirit animal (Guardian Spirit), to join us in our traditional Tabaco and a Cacao ceremonies, to get in touch with nature and the elements in a shamanic way, to work with the sound, drums and traditional chantings.
As part of this workshop there will be the possibility to do a ceremonies with the sacred Yage, a power plant from the Ecuadorian Amazon, that is used as a medicine from different cultures in Ecuador and south America.
To participate in the Yage ceremony you need enough time to prepare yourself for the experience and also time to process all the teachings of the medicine, that’s why people will be asked to be in the Yoga & Shamanism Camp one week before the ceremony starts and stay for at least 4 days after the ceremony finishes.
