Sacred Ayahuasca Retreat with Arkawa and Juan and FINAL TOAD CEREMONY

With Juan and JC Arkawa

December 15 - 17, 2023

Program is fully booked


Join us for a truly transformative experience at our Sacred Ayahuasca Retreat outside of beautiful Portland, Maine. Our Medicine Carriers, Arkawa and Juan, will guide you through a transformative 3 day, 2 night weekend which includes all meals, accommodations, and activities, so you can focus on your inner journey.

During the weekend, you’ll participate in two powerful ceremonies on Friday and Saturday, along with activities like breath work, meditation, integration, and music. On Sunday, we’ll conclude with breakfast and a group photo before you depart feeling renewed and empowered. 

There will also be an opportunity to add on Kambo or Sacred Toad ceremony (or both) to your retreat.  Kambo is a deep physical cleanse, and the sacred toad is a powerful experience that will transport you to a place where you can intimately connect with source energy, healing parts of your heart that otherwise aren’t usually accessible.  This will be the last opportunity to sit with the sacred toad medicine for the foreseeable future, as we have to make some changes.

To support your continued growth and integration, we offer indefinite online integration sessions at no extra cost. You’ll receive all the details after the retreat and can participate in the sessions whenever you feel called.

We’re honored to provide a safe, nurturing, and respectful space for you to do this important inner work, and we’re grateful that your journey has led you to our Sanctuary.

Don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter during registration to receive exclusive Sanctuary updates, discount codes, special invites, and more!

Thank you for your generosity, and we send blessings to you on your journey.
