About the event
Khantati Healing Retreats are exclusively for folks of the Andean diaspora who have been displaced, detribalized, disconnected, and separated from their motherlands, Tawantinsuyu. You might identify as a person of the Andean diaspora if you or your ancestors are of Quechua, Kichwa, Aymara, or Incan descent and/or if your family is originally from the Andean lands currently known as Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, or Peru (Tawantinsuyu) yet your family migrated to the United States and you grew up physically, mentally, or spiritually disconnected from your motherlands, mother tongues, cultures, spiritualities, and roots. As a result, those of us of the Andean diaspora may have a deep separation and/or cultural belonging wound that may go back for generations due to the effects of colonization.
These retreats are a space to soothe and heal those wounds, to rest, to play, to grieve, to give gratitude, to comfort, nurture, and nourish your inner child, teen, and adult self - all in community with like-hearted souls. These retreats not only offer an opportunity to connect with Andean land and culture but also provide an opportunity to expand and deepen your knowledge and personal connection to Andean spirituality. All activities offered on this retreat emphasize bringing balance, alignment, and healing to your body, mind, and spirit. The medicine offered on this retreat particularly targets our root and sacral chakras and will also touch on our solar plexus and heart chakras.
Isla del Sol is situated right on Lago Titicaca which is the Sacral Chakra of Mother Earth. This land and this water is an energetic portal where you can connect with and receive healing energies directly from Mother Earth and the Cosmos. Our ancient ancestors, the healing and benevolent spirits of this sacred land, and our ancestral deities Taita Inti, Pachamama, Mama Cocha, and Mama Killa long to be reclaimed, remembered, honored and venerated. They see us - their displaced and detribalized children - and they welcome us to connect with them, remember them, and receive all the medicine they have to offer us.
All retreats are 7 days/6 nights long and culminate in a Full Moon Ceremony to harness the cosmic medicine Mama Killa will gift us on the retreat. Some of the activities on the retreats include: sunrise cacao ceremonies, hiking pilgrimage to Chinkana ruins, Yin yoga sessions, bodywork sessions, guided meditations, tree healing, sunset and stargazing, beach bonfire and camping, and giving back to Pachamama by offering trash/recyclables pick-up
Vegan, vegetarian, and traditional Andean indigenous foods will be provided for meals.
Retreat capacity is up to 12 participants. Priority will be given to queer and/or trans folks of the Andean diaspora.
Total Cost for the retreat is $650 - price covers room and board for 7 days/6 nights (7n breakfasts and 6 dinners), transportation to and from Isla del Sol, honorarium for healers, room and board for body workers, and medicine and supplies.
