Peru Yoga Retreat

yoga retreat peruSpread your wings and join Rabbi Batsheva Meiri, Joshua Canter (True Nature’s Founder), and friends for a contemplative Tikkun Olam (“service”) adventure journey to the Sacred Valley of Peru to explore what it means to be a Jew in the world. After a year like no other, we are so looking to “being” together for this well-needed retreat and pilgrimage. Together, we will experience the richness of Peruvian culture, engage in meaningful acts of g’milut chasadim, community service projects, explore sacred sites, all the while weaving Jewish mindfulness practice and ritual to heighten our transformation as individuals and community. Immersed in native Peruvian spiritual traditions and rituals, we hope to reawaken in us the magic of being connected to the earth, which is at the heart of ancient Jewish tradition, but may have become lost to us. We will become a community of global spiritual explorers in search of our own personal True Nature.

Accommodations

peru yoga retreatThe retreat center’s name translates as “love from the ancient forest.” It is nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees, nourished by a magnificent waterfall in the Sacred Valley of Peru. This lovely spot is in the Andes Mountains and home of the twelve mountains known as Apus—“luminous beings.” Those who come to the center have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for ritual and Despacho ceremony.

The guests at this center enjoy delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly-prepared ingredients. Each guestroom is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley. The entire center embodies kindness, love, and wholeness that seem to permeate the magical place.
