Taheera Ma'at Presents

Pico Portals Ma'at Medicine Retreat

In the Valley and into the Womb!

Jaraboca, Dominican Republic

July 17th~23rd, 2022



The intention of the retreat is to create a safe, supportive space for healing, expansion and reconnection to self and spirit. 

This is an intimate, transformational retreat held by experienced practitioners in a sacred environment for your spiritual journey.

Here's a Sample Intinerary 

Thi retreat will be a off grid exprience in the Valleys of Pico Durate in the Dominican Republic. To get to the location is to hike or ride a mule to the final destination. You all will arrive a day earlier and stay at a house together. The following morning you all will be making your way down into the valley. It is imperative that you are physically capable to hike long amount of hours and be comfortable with not having any cell phone service once you start hiking. 

Day 1: Arrival

You will arrive at the house where everyone will be staying at for one nigh. We will be getting things prepared such as food, equipment and so forth. Depending upon your arrival time we will meet with the tour guide to discuss any questions that may come up for you all, prior the hike. 

Day 2: The Journey Begins.

We begin the journey early in the morning. The tour guides will lead us up and down the trails. You will be submerged with beautiful sceneries of the mountains as well hugged into the trees. We will stop to rest along the way. The duration of the hike can last between 4-6 hours depending up how fast we go, but we are interested in rushing the journey. We want people to enjoy all the mystical magic of this place. 

Day 3: Arrival into the Valley

After a quite vicourous hike, we will arrive in the valley and begin to set up our camping location. Due to the park being public we will have an area blocked off just for us to respect the sacred container. There is alot of integration that takes place once we arrive so we will reserve this day to do so. 

Day 4: Kambo, Rio, and Psiloycbin

We will wake up bright and early to begin the Kambo Ceremonies followed by lunch then the river. The river within it self is such great medicine after the ceremony.You will be able to stay as long as you want and  have privacy to relax, integrate and just be.  As the sun sets we will get prepared for an Psilocybin ceremony by gathering around the fire, setting intentions and setting ourselves up in the sacred space. 

Day 5:  Temazcal Ceremony

This is where all Elemental technology is alchemized and we come together to alchemize the wisdom through an intense purification. Temazcal ceremony derives its name from where it takes place, which is inside a “temazcal”, or sweat lodge. The structure is small, dark, and designed to trap in heat. Sweat lodges are common throughout indigenous Native American cultures, stretching from Central America all the way to Canada and Alaska. The temazcal is used as a healing process for the body, often a recovery from strenuous activities, and is a useful way to heal the spirit and mind. This will be led by my partner Manuel who has been initiated to facilitate Temazcal ceremonies and Junior, the Fire Keeper. Both of them carry themselves as Sacred Masculine which also solidifies a deeper healing.


Day 6: Back up the Valley we go

The last day we head back up the valley. This is also the time for people who would like to continue to their stay, and head up to the Pico Peak. Everyone else will return to the same Air Bnb where we began our journey.

Day 7: Departure

We will honor this day for departure , making sure everyone gets to their flights on time.
