Allowing Grace in Our Lives : Journey to the Valley of the Dawn
Spiritual Retreat in the Andes of Ecuador

Fall 2021

This unique journey of awakening will take us out of our ordinary way of being and bring us to the breathtaking high Andean Mountains of Ecuador, immersing us in the ancient culture, land and teachings of the people of the Andes.


Immersed in the mysteries of ancient Andean traditions, within a supportive community, we will pause from our busy life and experience ceremonies and teachings designed to gently allow Grace to open us and our inner wisdom to emerge.


Every one of us has deep wisdom within us. This unique trip will help us to deepen the knowledge of our gifts, explore the challenges that we face in life and practice how to move through our every day lives with a grace that is rooted in our own inner wisdom & knowing.


During our joyous journey, we reside in the Valley of the Dawn, an ancient rural village surrounded by three sacred mountains.  Activities are carefully balanced with yoga, meditation and relaxation. For integration our last two days are spent at the Termas of Papallacta hotel, enjoying its natural volcanic fed hot springs and spa.


Come with an open heart, prepared to laugh and have some FUN!
