∞ Alma Tierra' Retreats ∞
“Rituals transcend the illusion of separation and lead us to open space-time and connect to everything that has been, what is and will be”. – Alma Tierra
Three days in nature, of ceremonies and connections.
Alma Tierra invites you to take a journey to the heart of human existence, to the heart of the earth, to the heart of our origins. A journey to connect together, with nature and the invisible as our ancestors have practiced for millennia.
In the middle of the forest, between the mountains with rocky cliffs, the river of crystalline water and the starry night sky, we invite you to come to the essence of what you are. At the rhythm of the drum, the songs, the cry of the hawk and the whistling of the wind in the peaks of the big trees, hear the call of the mountain.
Evening of songs – Temazcal Ceremony – The Work that Reconnect
- Dates coming soon -
- Connect -
What we offer in this retreat is to come into nature, meeting together to connect and touch what is alive in us and what is beyond us in this universe. An evening with songs and world music in the Tipi, outside with the fire or in the Yurt to open to the invisible and to rise in joy. Then, enter the womb of mother earth with the Temazcal ceremony; to the sound of the drum and the rattles, the songs and the crackling of the hot stones. They will release their energy for our way from the heart and the soul to what is home. A spiral process with the Work that Reconnects from Joanna Macy. Integrating the movements of gratitude, honoring our suffering for the world, seeing with new eyes and moving forward. It is in this spirit and this space that we advance on our path of healing towards peace, joy, connection and love.
- The Temazcal -
(House of warmth Nahualt)
The sweat lodges are part of an important ritual of purification and healing of many ancestral cultures spread around the world.
Among them, the Celts called it the “Teach Allais” (Sweating House), the Lakota “Inipi”, the pre-Hispanic civilizations like the Aztec, “Temazcal” in Nahualt.
The intention of this ceremony is to heal the body, the mind and the spirit. It is a reunion with the five elements: Terra, Water, Air, Fire and Spirit. To be together in the dark to make a process of death and re-birth.
You are welcome here.

– THE EXPERIENCE –
Since immemorial time, the human being seeks to connect with life. Since immemorial time, women, men and children have come together to create and live ceremonies with this intention. This intention to connect, to see beyond what our eyes perceive, to descend into the depths of our heart and our belly to heal what makes us suffer. To discover even more our essence, our soul. Who we are.
The experience of the Alma Tierra Retreats is to be in the middle of nature to dive into the Work that Reconnect. Our retreats are inspired by deep ecology, systems theory, personal journey and timeless spiritual traditions including Buddhist and some indigenous traditions of the Americas. The goal is to connect with what is in us, others, nature and the universe. It is to honor our suffering, to hear it and to welcome it. Then, to see with new eyes to build motivation, creativity, courage, trust and solidarity in a world in transition to a human culture of peace and connection.
During our retreats we will dive into this process that calls us to revisit the idea of isolation, separation between us, others and creation in order to discover who we are and all the possibilities in us to take full advantage place in the creation of a nourishing world.
These retreats are a concrete way to understand what escapes us and then take action to transform the dysfunctional in each of us and also around us to live the gratitude, the beauty and the love, with presence and integrity from inside to the outside.
Our retreats aim to recreate the link between ourselves, the human community and more than human. It is a journey to the heart of life, from our light and our shadows, from the unknown, to what calls us.
WELCOME TO YOU ALL!
