Noya Rao

The myth of Palo Volador, often associated with the Noya Rao tree or the "Flying Tree," is a fascinating element of Amazonian shamanic traditions, particularly within the Shipibo-Konibo culture. This myth encompasses elements of spirituality, healing, and transformation.

One of the most captivating aspects of the myth is the idea that Noya Rao is a Tree of Light. It is not only a physical entity but also a beacon of spiritual enlightenment. The light from the tree is believed to guide lost souls, heal broken spirits, and illuminate the path to spiritual awakening. It represents the ultimate connection between the material world and the divine.

What makes this retreat special?

The path of the Infinite-self.

Non-duality, love, and compassion are core values of our work at One Breath of Yoga. Yoga means Union and combining the Philosophy of Yoga and plant Medicine allow us to connect and understand the path of Love & knowledge with another perspective.

Non-Duality, Union, Love and Compassion are at the heart of the Noya Rao lineage of Shipibo curanderismo. Yes, you can study plants and learn about non-duality, love, and compassion! In fact, it accelerates this learning process, especially within a Noya Rao Dieta.

Both work as container for the other to unfold wider. It is a very special sensation to be able to feel and grasp such Universal law through the combined practice of two different and distant ancient traditions of the world. A true encounter of the Condor and Eagle.
