Who We Are

We are a beautiful team of healers from many different life walks. It is our deepest prayer to hold spaces for lasting healing and inner awakening to our own divinity, working with the powerful grandmother plant medicine Ayahuasca. We offer retreats through the year. As well as plant dietas for healing and as training to students on the medicine path.

We have been trained in the Shipibo tradition through many years of plant dietas. Over the last few years have been working deeply with northern plants to honor the lands that we live on. Though our foundation to this work has been in Shipibo cosmology, we draw strength from many wisdom traditions from around the world and are very grateful for the many teachers and elders who continue to inspire us on this path.

Bringing ancient shamanic health care practices and modern therapeutic practices together to support all those who work with us as best as we possibly can. It is truly an honor and great privilege to offer this work, and not one we take lightly. We are deeply devoted to serving all those who sit with us in their brightest most beautiful version of themselves.

Why Earth Temple Retreats

We offer small groups that provide a level of intimacy and care that cannot happen in larger centers. All our groups are limited to 15 participants, plus assistants to offer support if anyone needs help during the ceremonial process.

All of our longer retreats offer personal council and follow up support. We work with trained therapists and also invest in our own personal training and education in continuing to gain deeper understanding of various healing methods.

We are trained in an ancient form of health care and are able to create a cultural bridge of plant work in the modern day world, while still honoring age old traditions.

About Ayahuasca

Attend a Retreat

We would love for you to join us on retreat !

Joining Athena on retreat may have been the most powerful week of my life! So much healing, so much transformation and there are truly no words for the immense amount of gratitude I feel for her and the most important work she is doing. I am incredibly honored to have been able to work with such a powerful healer and am looking forward to working with her again. At her retreat I felt safe, loved and so deeply cared for. I can’t even express how full my heart was, coming home after just 7 days. If you are called to the medicine and need to work with a healer who is not only doing her own work but also committed to a path of integrity, Athena is your girl! Hands down the retreat I’ve been to. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your commitment to this path Athena!!!

There are no words ♥️, June 28, 2019

I met Athena and Jeremy over a year ago when I had the blessing of sitting with them in ceremony that they facilitated. Immediately, I know I was in a safe and sacred space and in the presence of genuine healers. Their medicine is beautiful and powerful and has helped me so much on my journey. I have also had many healing sessions with Athena. She truly is the light for me as I navigate a deep soul journey. She has supported and been there to guide me when I need her most. I am so grateful to have found such a beautiful soul sister. Anyone would be blessed to work with her. Much love and gratitude 🙏❤️

Working with Athena and Jeremy was a direct transmission of simplicity, clarity and humility. I very much appreciated the care and guidance she constantly gave during ceremony. I also appreciated that there wasn’t anything ‘extra’ no apparent ego was interwoven in the ceremony. That is a trait I usually see in buddhist teachers so I really appreciated that in ceremony. Lots of laughter and gentleness. Also it was one of the most powerful ceremonies of my life which I’m still working to unpack. A deep thank you for holding such elegant space for me to do my work.
