Ceremonies & Taoist Alchemy Gathering in New Mexico

May 22-27, 2024

This retreat integrates Amazonian Plant Medicine Ceremonies with teachings and transformative practices from Taoist Inner Alchemy, including: Qigong, Acupressure, 5 Element Meditations, and other lifestyle/wisdom teachings of the Taoist Chinese Medicine Tradition.

Please email with the subject line 'Southwest Retreat" to receive more information.


Many folks opt to host a private retreat for their community, friend group, or to commemorate a rite of passage life event around marriage, death, or birthday.




We facilitate plant medicine ceremonies within the Mahua-Lopez lineage of the Shipibo-Konibo tribe in which we are curandera initiates.  As facilitators, we are strongly supported by our plant diets with various Master Teacher Plants and by the ancient technology of the icaros/medicine songs, which allow the plants to work through us to facilitate transformational personal and collective healing.

We are trauma-informed practitioners with a combined many years as medicine women.  As such, we provide extensive pre-retreat medical screening and preparation, as well as post-retreat integration support.



All ancient medicine traditions share an understanding of the interconnectedness between human beings and the natural world and teach that true healing and evolution involves a holistic set of tools that address physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our beings.  We love to weave together tools and traditions from several of these healing and wisdom traditions with the aim of guiding our clients in the remembrance of the healer that lives within each of us. 

Below is a sampling of workshop and class offerings that we incorporate into our retreats:

  • Acupressure workshop
