Who we are

Passion and Experience

We are a passionate and seasoned tribe, focused on the empowerment of others through ancestral medicine for it’s profound healing, growth transformation & connection. We owe everything to the wisdom holders of this world, the cuanderos, vegetalistos, shamans of many traditions. We live through ways of reciprocity with the communities we learn from and the people we serve.

Healing: a new meaning

We believe Healing is changing towards a less exclusive dependance on science for identifying and prescribing our ways to heal. We now have direct access to unique tools to heal ourselves and feel empowered. This has always been the way of all Ancestral medicines. The new thing is that this treasure is now readily available to all of us. We finally have a choice.

What they say

We are deeply humbled by what participants have to share on their journey with us

Powerful yet, gentle medicine

I just returned home from the Aug 6-11 huachuma intensive and I have to say that it was the best plant medicine retreat I have been on so far. Everything from the retreat grounds, the wonderful vegetarian food, the people and the Temazcal made this experience a complete landscape for healing.

Frédéric is such a perfect blend of clinical, traditional knowledge mixed with ancient, shamanic knowledge which made ceremonies rich and full and joyous! He created such a safe and loving space for everyone to be themselves. This was my first time working with huachuma and Ive discovered that this is my medicine. Huachuma connected me to my true spirt and I was able to disconnect from the noise in my head and make a deep connection with my body and soul in a way that I havent been able to with other medicines.

I would say that huachuma is a powerful yet gentle medicine that allows you to be you… whether you want to heal from trauma or find answers to questions or to just be ever present in your body and enjoy and partake in the music and joy of the ceremony. The day ceremonies were my favorite because you were able to wander around in nature and swing in the hammocks or rest by the pool. I will definitely be back for another ceremony! Thank you!! Carla

World Class Experience & Facilitator

I just returned in early August from the retreat and words can’t describe how transformational this retreat was! The setting was perfect, simple yet very comfortable. The chef was wonderful! The food was so fresh and such clean eating. Everything came together so well, I could feel how much intention and care the facilitator and chef had.
If you want a life changing experience, you MUST attend one of these retreats. I have extensive experience with sacred plants and these were the best ceremonies I have ever had, hands down! I plan to return in December for another retreat.

That’s how much healing I received and I can’t wait to get more!!!

Most beautiful and life-changing experience

My experience with  Frederick has been incredible amazing. The ceremony is set up in the most beautiful jungle of Cancun in an open lodge with bonfire and pool, Which makes it very special as well the most delicious food and heavenly accommodation. Fredericks drumming is just magic in my ears and remembering gives me straight away goose bumps! He is holding beautiful space during ceremony, very helpful, guiding and liberating during processes.

I felt so grounded and trusting by their presence which allowed me to go deep. I remember waking up and magically seeing the world trough different eyes: The eyes of my heart, which I lost connection for so many years. Me, speechless and deeply grateful after ceremony, Sharon whispering in my ears: ,,Now you remember…” I believe, we’re all on our personal journey and this medicine helps you connect to the real essence of life and to finding yourself, to heal yourself and to transform, to enjoy the real gifts, love, joy and peace from within you. ♥️✨?

Even now, time after the retreat, integrating my experience into reality, I enjoy their powerful presence and help and particularly being part of a wonderful new family of plant medicine spirits!

Life changing Huachuma Retreat

The shaman, the healer and group as a whole were gifted and you won’t get any better. I would just tell anybody to stop at SpiritRivers reviews and just say YES like I did….it changed my life completely and opened the door to the journey of me completely integrating my true self and soul and it’s been a few months and I can truly say that I am even more happy, joyful and whole.

I was fortunate enough to do this huachuma retreat from April 2 -6, 2020 and it was deeply profound and life altering and the best thing I could ever have chosen as a gift for myself and integrating my soul. I cannot speak highly enough of Frederic, a healer who truly understand the Anglo programming and perspective that we come from and culture and really pushed us to integrate in a way that was long lasting….reaching far after the retreat. I am in the deepest gratitude to both teams and to Sharon who helped me see myself as the miracle I always was❤️ And AM!!!!

Grateful for SpiritRivers

Being diagnosed with bipolar 2 and fighting a terrible depression that pills could not fix I decided to take a leap of faith and do plant medicine. I was sick and tired of constantly fighting a battle that never seemed to end. Finding SpiritRivers was a blessing in my life and I am forever grateful for embarking on the process of healing with them.

Through their programs and help I was able to heal my bipolar 2 and learn that diagnosis was one due to me suppressing my emotions my whole life. I learned that we are all humans, we are all on a journey in life yet we choose different paths, we all need to have self love and listen to our intuition. Thanks to them my bipolar 2 and sex addiction have been healed.

Doctors could never do what the retreat did for me. When you need to help yourself you can do so by signing up. Even if you think you are perfect and happy just the way you are, you should still do a retreat because you will learn so much about yourself. I believe you can never stop perfecting yourself and striving to be a better person each day. After all- don’t we all want to attain divine enlightenment?

You will Never be the Same

This experience is absolutely life changing. The staff here is the best in the business, and it’s not even close. The layout, attention to detail, depth, and quality of the retreat is far superior to others I have heard about or looked into. The retreat center is amazing and the maloca is a sacred space and absolutely beautiful structure. Everything is provided when it is most needed and in the way that is most beneficial. Whether it’s meals, sound therapy, Temazcal, medicine, whatever.

The layout is perfect and the execution was perfect. They take you in as part of their family, and it’s a truly unique experience. You will make life long bonds here, make quantum leaps in healing, and leave with a new family and a clear purpose. You will also never be the same. That is all.

Worth every penny!

What can I say? This retreat, which I attended was life changing experiences! I made breakthroughs in one week that I’d been trying to accomplish in, let’s see, over 36 years! The Retreat was like heaven, and the perfect place for me to do my work. Beautiful serene surroundings, fantastic pool area, and the food!   And I am SO glad that I attended the “A Portal to Awakening Huachuma Intensive Retreat”! Frederic is a truly spiritual master at the art of conducting Huachuma ceremonies.  Frederic, is empathic, and knowledgeable, and conducts every aspect of the ceremony with a sort of quiet ‘power’ that I’m at a loss to explain. The combination of these two spiritual beings make for the perfect setting to work with this unique plant medicine! Needless to say, I’ll be coming back to work more and more with these wonderful people, and these healing plant medicines! AHO!

The journey

It was an amazing experience, first of it in my entire life. I learnt how to love, not to judge & how to let things go. I had a glimpse of how humanity was meant to be. How time is just another tiny part in the equation

Everything about the event was great, food, shelter. To be frank, I didn’t see anything negative at the retreat. The only thing that I found as a blessing was during integration a few of us are still slightly confused about the required steps to take to return to innocence.
