Ecuador

This Behold Retreats experience is set in the Ecuadorian Amazon jungle, the home to all traditionally cultivated Ayahuasca and the birthplace of this transformative experience. We have chosen a tucked away lodge in the heart of the jungle, a conscious space between crystal clear waters and ancient trees. This special corner of the forest is far from cell signals, a place to detach from the digital. The highly sustainable, eco-built property is used not only as a base to explore the Ecuadorian Amazon but also as a healing centre. You are in one of the most positively charged places on earth to begin your journey.

We have a few spaces still available for our retreats in October, November, and December 2020. Our dates for 2021 are still to be confirmed.

Why is this journey right for you?

Behold Retreats believe in personal journeys. If you are someone who believes in the power of tradition, culture and connection, this is the retreat for you. This experience is capped at 6 participants so the healing is deeply individual and spiritual. Your guide throughout is esteemed ethno-botanist Jonathon Miller Weisberger.

Jonathon is from the USA by birth but was brought up in Ecuador and has devoted his life to extending his knowledge of the rainforest and its indigineous people by living and working alongside deep tribal communities for over a decade. He is a professional rainforest guide and expert in plant medicine bringing not only knowledge and understanding but will assist you in creating a deeper appreciation for the natural world around you.

What to expect?

With Jonathon as your guide you will be introduced to traditional, authentic healers who encapsulate the true cultural roots of this experience. Jonathan will first accompany you from Quito to Tena and along the way take you through the natural wonders of Ecuador to reach the lodge. On this journey you will stop off at hot springs, see the magic of the cloud forest and reach the deep forest by mid-afternoon. Spend your days wandering the jungle and learning about its flora and fauna, on ceremony days you will be prepared by the team through a series of cleansing rituals including bitter and sweet baths to purify your aura before and after the ceremonies. This is an authentic, deep healing experience.
