Experience spiritual guidance, healing, and earth wisdom in a sacred space the indigenous Teyuna Elders.

The Teyuna Elders, indigenous spiritual leaders from Colombia’s Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, are journeying to Omega so they can share their earth wisdom with Westerners. Join this rare opportunity to experience spiritual guidance and healing in a sacred space.

The Teyuna—a name that means “thinker of clear thoughts”—are one of the few indigenous cultures whose wisdom survived colonization. Their lives, especially those of their mamos and zagas (male and female spiritual leaders), are dedicated to upholding “Earth’s Original Law,” which states that everyone must protect and nurture the planet—our collective home.

Mamos and zagas of the Teyuna are rigorously trained from birth to develop an intimate connection to Aluna, Universal Consciousness. Through a practice of deep meditative listening, they develop sublime inner vision, clear sentience, and profound healing ability. Their training also provides them with compassionate leadership skills to best support the communities they serve. They learn to carefully listen to each tree, bird, river, and plant for information about how to best serve in their role as stewards of the Earth. Recently, the Teyuna’s spiritual leaders received direct messages from the Earth Mother to speak with Westerners about the imminent threat to life on Earth.

Gather with the Teyuna for this special retreat to learn what we as a species have forgotten about personal and planetary healing. Throughout the week, you experience sacred teachings of the earth, circle discussions, healings, sacred ceremonies, and intimate, ancient teachings about reclaiming our inspiration to nurture nature and free ourselves from separation through direct experiences of oneness.
