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.
Amaruanka Healing Center is located in a quiet nature spot and luscious garden, away from cars and distraction. This peaceful environment supports you during your stay, to quiet the mind, open your heart as you find connection to nature’s wisdom within. Our retreat program has options for private room, or shared accommodation with one other person. You can do level 1 during a retreat of 8 days/7 nights, or both levels during a retreat of 15 days/14 nights.
