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.



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.


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.



You can do both levels during a retreat of 15 days & 14 nights. Our accommodations offer comfort and tranquility, allowing you to fully immerse into the learning and healing journey.

Amaruanka Healing Center is located in a quiet nature spot, away from cars and distraction, where you will hear the birds and the essence of your soul, immersed in a luscious garden.

If you choose the "Food & Chef" option, you will be provided with 2 vegetarian meals a day (lunch & dinner), and all the delicious ingredients you need to prepare your own breakfast (let us know about any intolerance or allergies). Or you can choose to buy your food at the market, and prepare your own meals in our fully equipped kitchen.
