Spirit Horse welcomes back Kurikindi, Ecuadorian Shaman, to share his medicine with us again. A life that began deep within the Amazon rainforest, Kurikindi’s path has seen him travel far and wide, inspiring and opening the hearts of many. He honours his mission to the divine, planting seeds of light into the heart of humanity.

Kurikindi will perform healing rituals and ceremony during a three day fully residential retreat in August 2024. He  will generously share some of the healing traditions of  his tribe, the Kichwa people, who live deep within the Ecuadorian rainforest. Their teachings span over 3000 years.

The Retreat
This weekend retreat will include talks, teachings and plant ceremonies, these include:


  • Traditional Chilli and Liquid Tobacco Ceremony

  • Traditional Cigar and Kurisari Ceremony

  • Early morning Guayusa Tea Ceremony (for deeper understanding of the dreams)

Traditional prayer songs are made throughout. There is an opportunity to share and discuss the experience afterwards, and it is encouraged to ask questions to gain clarity of one's journey.


What is a Tobacco Ceremony?

A Tobacco Ceremony involves insufflating liquid tobacco (through the nose). Held by Kurikindi's energy, upon receiving the medicine, all relax together and welcome in the experience.


What is a Guayusa Ceremony?

Guayusa ceremonies are a tradition in the rainforest, connecting the people more deeply with the dreaming realms. Early in the morning, we will come together to take the tea. The plant supports deeper understanding of the dreams, which are shared within the ceremony and interpreted by Shaman Kurikindi, offering clear understanding and vision.



Additional Private Sessions with Kurikindi £75
Kurikindi is offering private sessions in addition to the retreat.

Master Shaman Kurikindi, of the Kichwa people, was born into a lineage of indigenous Shamans who work with various sacred medicines.   Kurikindi's life and experiences have built a profound and powerful healing through working with the teachings of the plants and through the virtues of love and light.

He is visiting from his retreat centre, the Kurikindi Kawsay centre, based in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest. Kurikindi has spent many years walking a path of service to humanity and to the Divine which has led him to share his experience and teachings with the world. 

We are honoured and excited to welcome him back to our own rewilding rainforest this summer.
