15 Day Ceremonial Massage Course Retreat

Next Massage Training: OCTOBER 21

Enhance your sacred offerings, and learn a unique massage approach, while continuing to explore your own healing practice. The blueprint of this training empowers each participant to go on a personal journey of self-love, integration, and profound transformation, while learning the art of Ceremonial Massage.



WHAT IS CEREMONIAL MASSAGE?

_DSC9762_600.jpg

Diana Deer Hawk has been offering Ceremonial Massage for over 10 years through inner vision, shamanic journeys, body-work training in swedish, acupressure, cranial sacral, womb healing, energy healing, and instrumental sound. She is now called to guide people through their personal discovery, and dance in the art of Ceremonial Massage.

Diana and Matiyu, co-founders of Amaruanka, come together to share teachings during this course. The 4 core wounds, self-care practices, and the art of Ancestral Healing and Ceremonial Living.

This experience becomes a sacred dance in connection with nature, that awakens memories, cleanses the womb, restores passion for life, balances masculine and feminine energy, and helps process trauma.


TRAINING FOR MEN

We have a special program for men, where we replace Womb Healing with Heart Opening & Sexual Healing, offered by Matiyu Alku Chaska. This is a safe opportunity to allow emotions to liberate, become conscious of wounds, and restore your inner relationship with your heart. Matiyu guides men on the path of becoming a mature King, helping them to take responsibility for creative and sexual energy, which serves the greater purpose in life.

This is a heart-opening, mind-calming, and sensory-expanding journey, where you will connect with your inner child, receive insights about your life's path, and cultivate loving compassion for yourself, and your loved ones.

Huachuma, also known as San Pedro, is a cactus that grows in the Andean mountains of Peru. It has been revered and honoured by the local medicine people for ages, ingested in ceremonies to bring clarity, connection to Mother Earth, and to the Sacred Heart.

This plant medicine is experienced during daylight, beginning early in the morning, and lasts all day, fading gently in the evening.

Immerse yourself in a safe, intimate, and private environment, surrounded by nature, eucalyptus trees, and the sound of hummingbirds, to connect with the Spirit of Huachuma.

A complimentary experience in this retreat, is a guided meditation at Inca ruins, up in the mountains, and 2 cacao ceremonies, to help you open your heart, and reconnect with your soul’s purpose.

5 Day Healing Cacao Retreat for Couples

Amaruanka invites you and your partner for a beautiful healing experience, where you will have the opportunity to take your relationship to a higher level of complicity and connection, with the help of Sacred Cacao.



HOW CAN WE HEAL WITH LOVE?

IMG_5663_Couple_1000.jpg

Love is an energy present in all of us. The thing is, we don't necessarily know how to love, in a way that our partner will feel totally heard and seen. This can be enhanced by conscious communication.

Communication is more than being able to express ourselves: it's about the quality of our presence, in every moment. Presence with what we feel, presence with what our partner feels.

This practice is enhanced by Sacred Cacao. We serve premium ceremonial cacao from Quillabamba, which opens the heart, calms the mind, brings clarity, and strengthens the connection with your partner.

THE FOUNDATION

The foundation of our teaching is a unique system that we created called The 4 Pyramids of Sacred Relationships.

From the journey of the serpent to the expansion of the eagle, you will be guided through four inspiring steps that help you enhance the relationship with yourself, and share the new you, with your partner.

You will learn fundamental qualities of how to raise your vibration, treat your partner as a King or Queen, be authentic, and no longer repress emotions.

Many of us carry deep emotional wounds and traumatic memories; it is time to embrace this, and truly love all that is. When we become conscious, we can be of great service to ourselves, and to our loved ones.


_MG_9544_1000.jpg

SUPPORTING YOUR SACRED UNION

As a sacred couple, we share how balancing masculine and feminine energy serves the whole. This is a unique journey for every individual to explore, and then embody this essence in their union.

We are devoted in serving couples to communicate authentically, raise the vibration to the next level, and celebrate the flame of passion.

We feel honoured to guide couples on the path of sacred relationships, and help them live a ceremonial life in love.
