TERRA BRAZIL RETREAT

Nature, Yoga & Ayahuasca

 

April 29th - May 8th, 2019

 

Meet your highest potential at one of the densest crystal deposits on earth. Practice yoga and meditation among the colorful tropical waterfalls, learn the local traditions of Maracatu, and explore the inner dimensions of your mind with the healing plant medicines of the forests of Brazil.

DETAILS

We will spend 10 days together supporting a healthy yoga lifestyle to facilitate healing, growth and transformation in the tropical mountains of Brazil. Our Retreat led by Ari Brasil and Ryan Sansing was designed to align you with the rhythms of nature. This secure environment in the heart of Brazil will help you cleanse, renew, transform and awaken. 

 

The Setting

Alto Paraíso de Goiás is located about 240 km from the capital Brasília. It is considered by the mystics as the magnetic heart of Brazil and it is crossed by Parallel 14, in the same way as Machu Picchu. Its population has a well developed ecological awareness, which makes the area very suitable for ecotourism. The exuberance of the local nature offers hundreds of attractions such as waterfalls, valleys, mountains, farms and nature trails.

 

Accommodations

We will be staying at Mariri Jungle Lodge. A place built with the intention to preserve the land of this pristine area using eco-friendly and sustainable practices to create unique accommodation spaces, all set within the ethics and spirit of permaculture. It is surrounded by beautiful raw nature, where you have a chance to observe monkeys, exotic birds, go hiking and connect with the spirit of the Cerrado (Brazilian Savannah biome) deeply rejuvenating your body-heart-spirit.

Getting There
You will be booking your flights to Brasilia International Airport (BSB). Before booking tickets, please be sure you have received your official confirmation note that the retreat has met its minimums. There will be one group airport shuttle each way based on our flight window guidelines. Be sure your flights align with the provided flight windows if you wish to use the group shuttle.

THE GUIDES

  • TESTIMONIALS

    “ I went to Brazil May 2018 and the experience was amazing. Ari and Ryan took care of everything. Everyone was so open and kind. Food was incredible, and I'm not vegan; accomodations were just rustic enough to feel like an adventure, without actually having to forgo comforts. Swimming under a waterfall was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I got to experience a piece of the culture. My only critique was that I definitely recommend more Maracatu! ” Cayley, California, 2018
  • TESTIMONIALS

    “ I went on the Terra Retreat to Brazil in May and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life so far. Ari did a fantastic job of curating the entire experience from the lodging, the hikes, plan{e}t medicine ceremonies and morning yoga, everything was perfect. Not to mention, the food was off the charts amazing(If you went just to eat you'd be happy you did). Throughout the retreat I was given space to expand into a more full expression of my truest self and that in of itself is absolutely priceless. Ari is dedicated to making sure that all of the participants' needs and desires are met and she is absolutely one of the most generous and loving souls I have ever been in contact with. If you feel even slightly called to it, I can say for sure that this is a space you can put your fullest trust into and upon returning home you will find you have gotten much more out of it than you ever could have put in. Take the leap! “ Jeffrey, Maryland, 2018
  • TESTIMONIALS

    “ Ari really sets the bar high when it comes to yoga retreats. Truth be told it was actually allot more than just a “yoga retreat” Each day was jam packed with so much fun and adventure. Not to mention 3 nights of ayahuasca/ kambo ceremonies , needless to say our scheduled rest days were much appreciated. All in all my time in Brazil was something special I will cherish the rest of my life. Super grateful to have gotten to meet all the amazing people who participated in the retreat. By the end of the 10 days we had become like a little family which made an already awesome trip even better. To Ari, thanks again for everything! best of luck with your future Terra Retreats and I hope to participate in one again soon! “ Austin, Connecticut, 2018
