I attended the Temple of The Way of Light for the first time in January of 2017 for the first all Women’s retreat. For me, it was an exceptional experience. I had been wanting to do this type of deep work for many years, but was not quite ready. I knew that I wanted to work with these plant medicines down in Peru, and knew that the right place would eventually present itself when the time was right. After many years of other types of healing modalities and inner work, I knew that I needed and wanted to go deeper. Essentially, the Temple found me in a way and everything aligned for me to attend the first ever all women’s retreat. The retreat was lead by two amazing facilitators – Dr. Tanya and Deanna. We had 5 amazing female maestra’s and the rest of the support staff was also incredibly kind and helpful the whole time. The Temple grounds were absolutely amazing to roam and integrate in between ceremonies and everything flowed in a synchronous way that I still find hard to put into words. The level of detail and care that went into that retreat was what allowed me to feel so safe to go as deep as I did with the medicine. From the moment we got picked up in Iquitos, to the moment we got dropped off, I felt very cared for. That women’s retreat will always hold a special place in my heart, as will the Temple. I then returned to the Temple again 8 months later in August of 2017, and had a very positive experience again. I plan to head back to the Temple again this year and am looking forward to returning to the magical jungle. I would definitely recommend people who are wanting to do this deep work, especially women, to go to this retreat center.
