In the Light, Peyote & Ayahuasca, Medicine Retreat

In the Light, Peyote & Ayahuasca, Medicine Retreat

Brian and Jody invite you to join us on a spirit-soaring retreat where we will integrate the vibrational therapy that is taught here at the farm with the work of plant medicines, including heart-opening cacao, grandfather Peyote and grandmother Ayahuasca. Farm of Life teaches guests to heal through raising vibration.  Higher vibration is achieved from the eating of healthy food, sound therapy, light therapy, grounding, breathwork and water. All of these activities start to elevate your consciousness… and then you can go even deeper when you integrate them with the forest medicine work. Medicines will take you to your soul. They are the fastest way to get you to your infinite self and when you are there, you can quickly heal lower vibrational stuff, such as shame, regret, disease. This is what the medicine work can do. And, the medicine work is magnified when integrated with the full-spectrum healthy lifestyle that we teach here at Farm of Life.
