6 Day Ether to Earth: a Soul Vitalizing Journey
Welcome! This is a self-knowledge retreat carefully designed in an interdisciplinary way whose central core is Art Therapy. Its main objective is to redirect and utilize stagnant emotions as well as energetic states stored in the body towards enhancing people’s lives as cognizant humans on this planet.
Unblock self-imposed limitations to unlock dormant potential: the power of creativity, free expression, master planning, expanding one’s perspective, and grit.
The tools are within you, accepting what happens to us is not easy, but it is the first step to expanding our splendor to the maximum.
One thing’s for sure:
As the week’s activities progress, unforgettable life connections will be formed, new tools to live a harmonious life will be acquired and most importantly – paths to new horizons will be clearer. All that is left is for you to continue on your path, with courage, focus, and confidence in your character.
The hardest part is starting, and you’ve already begun!
Are you ready to move forward in life, to flush out and fill up what inspires, motivates, and revitalizes you to live the life you desire?
Shave off layer by layer to awaken a more intuitive and serene self by sharpening your attention through dynamic and still meditative practices – to feel the subtleties of life, enhance the senses and refresh an appreciation for truly living, and by doing so, revitalize your being.
We will discover ourselves further with the mind-expanding and ego-sedating medicinal mushrooms by consuming micro-doses in a meditative ceremony. Psilocybin allows us to turn off the default mode of the mind and thus allow new neural connections, enabling new perspectives, solutions, and proposals; opening a world hidden by everyday chores.
Redevelop the basic human necessity of reconnecting with our natural mother that births life, our elements, the secret chatters of the jungle, and birds. This is a special opportunity to get back in touch with the natural world in the depths of the lush Tulum jungle in Mexico. A place that will be your home for a week with new friends and life-enhancing moments.
In this experience, you will live without time, isolated in the beauty of nature while maintaining the essentials of comfort in a welcoming home and a glorious property that is hugged by tropical vegetation and has its own celestial blue cenote (natural deep-water wells, which are fed by the filtration of rain and by the currents of underground rivers that are born in the heart of the earth). Imagine waking up to the sounds of sweet jungle melodies, and fresh air, and knowing your only responsibility right now is yourself. Spending the day surrounded by tropical bliss and friendly smiles. In this retreat, you get a taste of barefoot connection, far away from the bustle of Tulum, immersed in a secluded tropical home.
We call Ether to Earth the design behind our immersive experiences. Alluding to gathering our most passionate ideas from the world of thought to our tangible Earth, materializing our dreams. The Sublimation process of our emotions and feelings.
We adjust the design of the retreat to its participant’s needs and true necessities to help each individual expand towards their path of self-discovery or self-healing. We go through a brief pre-retreat interview process to connect and get to know each and every one of you so that we can offer you the most appropriate methods for the development of your process.
We open the experience every day with the practice of Yoga and Meditation, inhabiting our being in integrity, body, and mind. As the retreat begins, we generate an atmosphere of connection with the group, focusing on communication with the Authentic Relating workshop, Embodiment & Somatic Movement group sessions, and introduction to Water Dance, as the first approach to movement both on land and in water.
In the first days, you will have an individual therapeutic session of BioMagnetism & Emotional Reconnection to start the process of connecting and communicating with stored information and blockages in the body. BioMagnetic therapy restores proper pH and homeostasis levels to the body by administering the proper placement of varied strengths of magnets. This normalizes the response to inflammation, encourages the optimal function of organ systems, stimulates detoxification, and releases emotional traumas held deep in the body’s memory.
Emotional Reconnection & Release therapy is incorporated into the sessions to complement and potentialize the results of the healing body and soul, which leads to free the mind from old baggage. A profound emotional purification to start your new journey with less weight on your shoulders.
Become an active player in a series of workshops and experiences that will allow you to explore your body, your authentic movement and your voice without prejudice, shame or filters.
Expand from your inner constraints to be seen, be heard, be bold.
For this edition, we chose to incorporate Aquatic Dance and Experimental movement workshops to use sensitivity and attention as engines of creation.
Then we get into the exploration of Authentic Movement workshops as we invite unrestrained expression to flow through us freely, without thought manipulating our genuine manifestation in movement. Connect with your simplicity, transmute and liberate those feelings chained to us somatically.
As the setting sun welcomes the night, we will enjoy collective musical gatherings, with Singing Circles, Sound Journey and Yoga Nidra. To touch on the subtleties that the subconscious desires to reveal to us and to which it is at times challenging to pay attention to.
Moving forward on the journey we will uncover our voice in the Vocal Liberation and Activation workshop, where we address the infinite power of our voice. Release through melodic sounds and play with those words and events you’ve one too many times swallowed or held back. Free your voice. We want you to feel loved, supported and most of all heard in a community of people who are witnessing the first chapters of this powerful and courageous new you. No step forward is too small to recognize. We will play with those self-limiting thoughts, surrender to ourselves and connect through the power of music. A path of millennial healing, even before the development of agriculture.
As the days go by and the inner connection with a simpler pure self strengthens. The feet are planted firmly on the ground, there’s a shimmer of clarity in the eyes, and just like that, we are on our final days. Feeling healthier physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually from the ongoing process of daily conscious eating and intermittent fasting, meditation, yoga and pranayama. We are now ready to seed our most forgotten passionately driven desires. Giving form and determination to those thoughts with the Master Goal Planning group session, also known as Ether to Earth a creative method to give form, clarity and achievable step by step strategies to attain your most desired life objectives.
To seal this special journey that we’ve collectively embarked on, we will celebrate each other and this wholesome new beginning as we drink ceremonial Cacao together. Allowing the heart to open, the senses to activate and the words to be shared with a new family. We honor life by dancing together through 5 Rhythms, a dynamic movement mediation. Opening our hearts to accept and lead our conscious desires toward the light and into realization, together.

What Makes This Retreat Special
The Ether to Earth method takes this retreat experience further than a mere holiday retreat. This methodology was carefully crafted and elaborated by professionals from the field of psychology, arts, and social communications.
Here you will practice exercises to awaken mental clarity and gain confidence that does not rely on exterior validation or other factors. Instead, it’s affirmed by appreciating your strengths, understanding your shadows, and calming the mind to develop the ability to self-observe.
We consider Art and Therapeutic sessions interrelate, and together they provide physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual well-being. This is one of the few paths that can be considered sustainable in time. A method that is shared in our retreat experiences, and one that will lovingly accompany you for the rest of your life.
Personal work must be done with love, care, and consideration. With more than 10 workshops and experiences in a span of 6-days, you will enjoy being with yourself and sharing with other courageous people in their processes.
Spirituality is also collective, together we support each other on our paths. We are not alone, sometimes we search for a place to feel at home, contained, embraced, without the need to do much. Gift yourself that moment. We offer you the place and watch over you with care as you unfold into a relaxed pure state. Free to be and explore, to deconstruct as far as you desire.
We wish for you to seize the most from this experience that we genuinely hope to change the world with, even if it’s one heart at a time. We are all on this healing path together, and as we heal and develop more compassion for ourselves, our relationships, and the world we live in… then the domino effect is inevitable. As you improve and thrive, so does the collective spirit.
We wholeheartedly believe in the power of these practices and have witnessed their results. Simplicity, self-observation, trust, understanding that there is more than 1 perspective to every event, and allowing oneself to let go – are the keys to inner peace.
We begin the day with warm lemon water to alkalize the body.
