The location of the retreat is nestled in the heart of a natural sanctuary in the woods of Odemira, Alentejo, South West Portugal, bordering Algarve. It is only around 2 hours drive from Lisbon airport & around 1.5 hour drive from Faro airport.

 

A place for contemplation and connection with nature and its elements. A place to get inspired to redesign life’s attitudes on Earth & oneself, manifest awakening, and simply wander around nature to deepen the experience & integrate the wisdom of the plants, mother earth & oneself.

 

The center of a retreat is a family-run & soul-based space, nestled in 71 ha of nature and privacy. This center was created with an aim of expanding health & facilitating purposeful transformational moments.

The Center’s vision and purpose is to inspire an awakening and transition into an increasingly conscious mindset, spirituality, and sustainable existence, reconnecting with the Source, through a nourishing context of possibilities. They focus on organic farming, conscious nutrition, meditation, and permaculture.

 

The combination of what they have created & the space that they hold is the best match for such sensitive retreats which involve plant medicine & such a deep, inner, transformational work.

MEDICINES

Ancient indigenous tribal cultures have long-regarded Plants as Sacred Medicines and Healers. The art and practice of working with Plants for their medicinal, psychoactive, spiritual, and transformative properties has been going on cross-culturally for millennia.

 

Many curanderos and shamans throughout the world share the belief that for every illness and every problem, somewhere in the world exists a plant that is the cure. In most tribal cultures plants are woven into their everyday lives. It is being used throughout their entire life – from birth to death, for healing, and spiritual purposes.

 

Plants with special abilities for healing, as well as abilities to open gates to spiritual portals are called ‘Power Plants’, or ‘Master Plants’, ‘Teacher Plants’. These Plants are considered to be Spiritual Healers. Master Plants hold the potential to teach us more about ourselves, broaden our perspective to life, unlock our own power, awaken our potential, and help us heal deeply rooted wounds.

 

Two of the main Master Plants are Ayahuasca & Huachuma (commonly referred to as San Pedro). These Master Plants are the main teachers being used at Dadirria Retreats.

Ayahuasca

Ayahuasca is a Master Plant that originates in South America and has been a big part of tribal rituals for ages. Ayahuasca is a powerful Medicine Plant that offers deep inner healing and self-realization to all human beings who have been called on this journey. The Ayahuasca Tea is composed of two Plants: Banisteriopsis Caapi (the ayahuasca vine) and Chacruna (the plant leaves containing DMT). These plants work together in a synergistic way to open humans up to new perspectives of life. Ayahuasca is a sacred, divine, mystical Master Plant that has the capacity to open doors that previously have been closed. Ayahuasca helps us to tap deep into our subconscious mind to truly make changes happen & last. Ayahuasca opens the door, it is up to us to walk through it.

 

Ayahuasca has a mother-like or grandmother-like spirit. She empowers us to confront ourselves, confront our traumas, and helps overcome depression, anxiety, PTSD, addictions, and other health issues. She teaches us more about ourselves and helps us unlock our power. She reminds us of the Inner Shaman that’s inside of us all & she may show us ways to integrate that Shaman into our everyday lives. When you decide to drink Ayahuasca, it is very important to choose people you drink with wisely. The ones serving Ayahuasca and the ones helping inside the ceremony space are fundamental part to your transformation. Preparation, setting, environment & integration is key to truly understand what she has presented to you, taking the most out of it, and making it lasting changes. At the same time to create a positive ripple effect for the people around you and the Mother Earth.

San Pedro

Huachuma, more commonly referred to as San Pedro, originates in the Andes and the surrounding desert areas of Peru. Huachuma is a Master Plant that is being used for shamanic purposes. Some consider this Plant one of the greatest teachers. A brew is made from cactus. The three most commonly used cacti are Trichocereus Pachanoi, Echinopsis peruviana, and Echinopsis lageniformis.

Huachuma or San Pedro cactus is principally composed of mescaline – a psychedelic alkaloid that is also found in Peyote (another psychedelic cactus from North America, is widely used in Mexico in Shamanic practices).

Mescaline itself is non-toxic and non-addictive. The effects of Mescaline have been described as “empathogenic (said to be similar to MDMA) and potentially life-changing, healing, promoting radical introspection and sense of wonder and awe”.

Huachuma is a plant medicine that is currently overlooked in its therapeutic & transformational potential yet it has been and remains one of the most powerful psychedelic Plants. During Huachuma ceremonies many users have received valuable lessons, gained clarity, guidance, breakthroughs, healing, awareness of their divinity, unity, and ego dissolution. People attending ceremonies also report meeting their spirit guides, ancestors, spirit animals, and otherworldly beings who help them in some way. People also experience heightened senses, waves of emotions, a sense of being connected with everything, with all life, bliss-like states, gratitude, heightened levels of consciousness.

Huachuma is often described as a spiritual experience, transcendental, enlightening, awakening, healing, and transformative. It is an expansion of a heart center. A powerful connection with the Universe, Heaven, Spirit World & the Earth.

The embodiment of the Huachuma process is a long one. It takes endurance. However, Huachuma is a very Sacred & strong Medicine that deserves great respect for its valuable wisdom, great teachings, incredible healing potential & lovingly opening the heart space.

 

Rapé / shamanic tobacco snuff

Rapé is a sacred Amazonian snuff that you blow up your nose, often referred to as shamanic snuff. Rapé is prepared with powdered medicinal herbs with tobacco as a base.

This Plant has the potential for incredibly potent and beneficial effects on the human body, mind, and spirit, when it is not mass-produced, synthesized, and incorporated with harmful chemicals to create cigarettes.

The Sacred Shamanic Snuff known as Rapé has been used by tribal cultures in the Amazonian region for ritual, medicinal and recreational purposes for thousands of years. Rapé is considered to be one of many Sacred Medicines from the Amazon that are used both to overcome physical, psychological, and emotional blocks as well as gain tremendous insight into other, subtler worlds.

Rapé works well together with other Plant Medicines, especially with Ayahuasca. We offer a Rapé ceremony before drinking Ayahuasca to relax your mind, start moving and shifting your blocks, prepare and help you to surrender. Tobacco also acts as a gateway to other Master Plant Medicines so we believe it can help to deepen the connection with Grandmother Ayahuasca.

Rapé is administered through a pipe and blown up your nose. After the application, you are recommended to sit quietly in a meditative position, feel into what comes up, and just surrender to the experience. The effects of this plant are experienced rapidly and intensely because the powdered snuff is administered through the nose. It can feel uncomfortable, yet, it is a part of the experience.

Kambo

Kambo, often called the vaccine of nature, is a Sacred Medicine extracted from frogs. The bright green giant frogs that live in the Amazon secrete a poisonous waxy substance to defend themselves from predators. This is what’s used in a Kambo ceremony.

Research has shown that substances are loaded with all kinds of powerful biopeptides. One of the peptides interacts with the body’s own opiate receptors, so it can help the pain. The ceremony itself may also create a calming effect.

Indigenous people have used Kambo for centuries to heal and cleanse the body by strengthening its natural defenses and warding off bad luck. It was also believed to increase stamina and hunting skills. These days shamans and naturopathic practitioners still use it for cleansing the body of toxins, as well as treating numerous health conditions.

Practitioners of Kambo believe that it can help with a range of conditions, such as: Addictions, Alzheimer’s disease, Anxiety, Cancer, Chronic pain, Depression, Diabetes, Hepatitis, HIV and AIDS, Infections, Infertility, Rheumatism, Vascular condition,  Allergies.

Kambo causes a range of unpleasant side effects. The first is usually a rush of heat and redness to the face. Other effects can include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, swelling of the lips or face. All of it however is just a process, it is not long-lasting. It is a process of your body cleansing, releasing, letting go, restoring itself. The only thing we can do is to surrender to the process & trust in the medicine to do its work.

We offer Kambo as an optional healing treatment for an extra EUR 100.
