Huni Kuin weekend retreat
Next to the 4-day healing retreat in July the Huni Kuin family will be here also in May for a weekend retreat with two nights of ceremony.

Since 2013 bridging the forest to the west, bringing the Huni Kuin’s to visit the European family, we are truly blessed to have them returning in May and July, 2020 to carry on the profound healings, messages for the planet and tribal teachings, for those of you that attended last year’s retreats with them you will know how profound these sacred traditional circles are!

The Huni Kuin people, or “true people,” as they call themselves, inhabit mostly Brazilian lands in the tropical Amazon, in the Acre estate, but their lands extend to the foots of the Andes in eastern Peru. The Huni Kuin are the largest indigenous population in the Brazilian Amazon, currently living in twelve indigenous lands along seven different rivers: Purus, Envira, Murú, Humaitá, Tarauacá, Breu and Jordão.
They had relatively late contact with the Western world, and even after decades of persecution, managed to keep their traditions alive. They speak Hãtxa Kuin (“true language”) and live in a bilingual reality, where in most villages they can also communicate in Portuguese as second language. They continue to practice sacred rituals with their traditional medicines, performing the traditional baptism of the youth & children’s “Nixpu Pima” and celebrating the harvest and
fertility dance known as “Katxanawa”.
The Huni Kuin people are an ancient tribe that have used sacred medicines for millennia - medicines that for them, link to the ancient spirits of the forest. It enables them to experience a harmonious relationship with the elements of nature - fundamental for the maintenance of their health and spirituality among their community. It is this experience they wish to share with the humanity.

This invitation is an opportunity to spend time with them in authentic retreats, guided with a lot of integrity and in their traditional ways & prayers, where they will share their culture, tradition and knowledge related to indigenous cosmological vision, integral health, spirituality and providing deep experiences of self-knowledge through ceremonies, sacred dances, ancient chants, stories, body paintings, and together with them we will have the opportunity to do a spiritual immersion, healing and personal transformation.
These messengers of the forest bring an important and positive message that points to a new time “Xina Bena”, a time of reconciliation between humans with Mother Nature.
The Huni Kuin receives their knowledge and wisdom over many thousands of years from the forest, the rivers, the plants, the elements, trees and animals. They are the true caretakers & Guardians and protectors of the Amazon Rainforest and their medicines & spiritual traditions.
They come to Europe to spread their messages, love and wisdom and to teach the ancient ways and cosmology of their tribe, and to create the alliance with the European family in order to strengthen the works in each of their villages, and to promote their annual festivals, jungle retreats, and projects in their villages deep in the Amazon Rainforest in Acre Estate in Brazil, In a mission of great importance in nowadays which the forest calls for help to strengthening this Alliance
in order to help & protect the forest, nature and their territories & ancient traditions.
