About the Event

Join us for a magical healing retreat at Holistic TherapeutiX, located in the Santa Monica Mountains in Agoura Hills, California.

The center offers a relaxing mix of traditional and modern styles, perfect for group sessions. You are surrounded by beautiful nature and outdoor areas that help you relax and feel good. We focus on mindfulness techniques using conscious and breathwork practices, community activities, and educational workshops and retreats to help everyone find their greatest potential.

The center is based on holistic and mindful exploration, blending traditional wisdom with modern science to help individuals become their best selves.

Over 2.5 days together, we will explore in depth our connection to our bodies, emotions, mind, and spirit to heal our soul connection and reconnect to our purpose and life vision.

We will use the container of the Andean Cosmovision Medicine Wheel to hold that space for us through this time of great transformation.

Through prayers, rituals, ceremonies, journaling, shamanic journeying, time in nature, connection to the elements, shamanic breathwork, community meals, and authentic presence with what is unresolved in our lives, we will gift ourselves the opportunity to remember the deep calling of our souls.

Some elements of our program:

- Fire ceremony

- Sananga ceremony

- Hapeh ceremony

- Shamanic Journeying

- 5 Andean Cosmovisions lectures with Angell Deer

- Plant Ceremony Rituals

- Breathwork Shamanic Ceremony

- Water blessing ceremony

- And more…

This retreat is catered to those who feel the call to be a force of change in this world. To those who wish to heal in depth what is troubling them. To the spiritual warriors, seekers, mystics, and students of life who aspire to birth the most empowered version of themselves to serve their families, their community, and this planet.

Come as you are, with your intentions and wildest dreams, with your full humanness and heart, and let's dive into this sacred container to answer those mystical times we are living in.

Individual & personal attention will be given to everyone, as well as collective connection and support. A preparation call will help you have a clearer intention and answer any questions you might have. An integration call a few weeks after the retreat will be there to support you in bringing home the gifts you will receive during the retreat.

We will provide organic breakfast, lunch & dinner, afternoon break healthy snacks, herbal teas, and much love, care, and warmth.

Space is limited to 15 people in person.

There is an option to attend online (with advanced technology, online facilitators, and live video).
