Upcoming Ontario Plant Medicine Retreats
After two retreats, two seperate Feitios (medicine cookings), and a consistent season of plant medicine ceremonies in Costa Rica, we are inspired to be back from the Rainforest to reunite with the Northern Winds of Ontario Canada, our Luminus team and Luminus Collective community in Canada.
We are honored to be offering two beautifully curated long weekend retreats this May. These retreats will feature two ceremonies over 3 nights and 4 days, outside of the city, surrounded by pristine nature.

In celebration of our overall Journey together we will have a liberating drum/song circle, so bring an instrument or shaker!
To close off the night, Dane will serenade us with sound healing meditation with a crystal bowl Soundbath to ground, recalibrate, and get you ready for a good, rejuvenating sleep.
Monday morning we pack up, enjoy a nice breakfast together and head out to a gentle group hiking excursion at nearby Eugenia Falls Conservation park with a river and waterfall to connect even more with nature and our individual process.
We are happy to offer support before, during, and after the retreat, with preparations, diet guidelines, 1 on 1 check ins, and integration calls after the retreat. Private healing sessions are available upon request before and after the retreat (extra).

About the Ceremony Facilitators
Angela Tobon - Curandera (Medicine Woman)
Angie is a Spiritual Guide, Healer, Teacher, and Mentor and has studied and practiced ancient and modern energy medicine practices for many years.
She completed an intensive 1 on 1 Shamanic studies in the Amazonian Jungle, with Shaman Ramon Alvarado of the Kichua Lineage. During the months in the Ecuadorian Jungle, she learned to work with many sacred plant medicines which helped her to appreciate her own intuitive inclination to the jungle and its powers. Her experience with Shaman Ramon Alvarado brings full circle connection with her native journey that had begun many years back as a child, in her own native land of Colombia.
Her childhood memories as a free and wild child roaming her family's land, fully connected to nature and the memories of her Curandero grandfather’s wisdom, gave her confidence to pursue her true nature's purpose.
Angie was trained to go deep in the Jungle in search of the sacred plants such as Chirripanga, Piton, Ayahuma, Tobacco, Ayahuasca, and many other cleansing and purifying plant medicines.
She learned ceremonial ways of picking the sacred plant and how to brew them in ways to conserve the sacredness and the magic powers of the plants.
Her experience and knowledge brings elder wisdom, and a deep, spiritual, emotional, physical and sacred connection while serving the plant medicine. Angie has also been an active Chinese Medicine Practitioner for over a decade.
Guided by her passion and personal desire to become empowered to serve and heal, she wishes to convey this harmonious state of being to those who have a desire to be guided and to learn more about their spirituality.
She learned and understood that we are indeed beings of energy and not just dense mass. We are fully supported by our Pachamama, the sacred plants, Taita Inti (the Sun), beings of light and beyond.
She wishes to teach that we are connected to an infinite source of energy, that was never born and that never dies.
