Nov 1 - Nov 5, 2023
Amate Camp | Tepoztlan, Mexico 


Not many things in this life are promised. But the one thing promised to us all is that at some point, this journey will end. Life gives way to death and death gives way to life. It is the cyclical nature of this existence.


Light of darkness is an opportunity to die consciously in this lifetime to be reborn and see with new eyes all the light in your life.


This time of the year, when the veils between worlds are thin, is a time to welcome the darkness—a potent time to celebrate life and honor those who’ve left this realm.


We’ll use yoga, meditation, nature, ceremony & shamanic, energetic processes as sacred tools to journey through the cycle of life, death & rebirth. When we work in this liminal space, we open a portal to access information, retrieve lost pieces of the soul, heal wounds, and gain clarity of what needs to be left behind to create space for new things to be born. 


Honor who you were, who you are, and who you are becoming, and join us in the mountains of Tepoztlan in this celebration of life and light

as we enter the darkness together.

Let death bring you back to life
