In the Allpahuayo-Mishana National Reserve
The Mishana Community are our dear friends and extended family. We have been welcome to this beautiful community with open arms and have built our home, here deep into the jungle. We are God Parents to one of our dear friends’ son from the community, we are so grateful and happy to be a part of this family. When you arrive, you will experience this love and appreciation of this wonderful community for yourself.
They are self-sufficient, living off the land, growing their own vegetables in their fields known as “Chacras.” They are also expert hunters and fisherman, there will also be a chance for those interested to go fishing with them on our retreats! They build their own houses, boats and all that they need to survive and thrive. Many of the community are avid soccer and volley ball players. You will have a chance to play with them if you wish
The Mishana’s lovingly welcome all of our participants to be a part of their extended family throughout our retreats. There will also be an opportunity to buy some of their hand made jewelry and crafts. One of the jungle guides from the community will also take you on a hike deeper into the jungle to learn more about the medicinal plants that grow all around us!
The pace of life is slow and relaxed within the community. It is vibrant, full of life laughter and joy. The children play timelessly throughout the village, swim in the river and enjoy the pristine beaches of their golden-white shores.
Our retreat center is nestled away from the community with the sweet, serene sound of nature to gently serenade you to sleep each night. This peaceful, relaxing location is paramount to deep healing processes. You can easily walk down to the community to soak up their vibes and enjoy the beautiful riverside panoramic views.
We live and work in harmony with the Mishana Community. We look forward to developing our symbiotic relationship and growing our hearts and souls together.
