CORE PROGRAM ELEMENTS

RAINFOREST IMMERSION

Our retreat center is nestled in lush rainforest, alongside a bounding river. At our backdoor is 7,500 acres of rainforest that Posada Natura's partners, Eco Era, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization has been protecting for 30 years. The ceremony work is uniquely supported by the healing pulse of the land and the symphony of the rainforest.

CIRCLE OF SACRED NATURE

We are a 501(c)(3) church in the United States and we consider this retreat a sincere expression of religious and spiritual practice. We welcome people of all orientations and faith backgrounds. Our mission is rooted in celebrating the interconnection of nature, indigenous wisdom, spirituality, and wellness.

INTEGRATION FOCUSED

Integration is an essential component of this retreat. We believe that the true benefit of attending this type of retreat happens afterward- when you are able to integrate the teachings from the ceremonies into your daily life, create more harmony with all your relations, and be of greater service to your community.  

TRADITIONALLY TRAINED FACILITATORS

Our plant medicine programs are led by highly skilled and experienced ceremony leaders with a minimum of 15 years of experience. We draw from diverse backgrounds and expertise and are grounded in traditional indigenous lineage training and practice with plant medicine. You will be held with great care throughout the entire process of your journey with us. 

WHOLESOME SAFE CONTAINER

Each group is capped at 20 participants, with exclusive use of the retreat center for the duration of the program. The communal experience at Posada Natura creates a sense of family and safety for each group. The land and space is a true sanctuary in nature that supports a container for deep inquiry and reflection.

ETHICS OF ACCESS & RECIPROCITY

We are committed to engaging in indigenous reciprocity. As an organization we support the roots of where our founding lineage originates in Sibundoy, Colombia. We also have a scholarship initiative to increase access to our programs. By attending a CSN retreat at Posada Natura, you are supporting causes beyond yourself.
