I am so glad that I trusted my intuition and followed the pull into the Amazon of Peru to a women’s retreat with Cura. The time shared helped open the door of ancestral healing and introduce me to the magic of plant medicine in a way I’d never experienced before. To be held in a container of feminine power with other women, while stepping into our birth-rites as women on this earth, was so precious. I am so very grateful for Cura for creating this offering, holding the space, and weaving the potent healing paths into a retreat experience whose true impact in my life and within my self is still unfolding.
I immensely appreciated the jungle experience on the retreat. For me it made no sense to have my first Ayahuasca experience in a different setting. This provided the ideal situation to reconnect with nature. The Journey to Novalis from Puerto Maldonado was also interesting for me since you need to take a boat and walk to arrive. This gave me the chance to slowly and step by step, leave things behind and have the time to appreciate the place you arrive to, the sounds, the smells and the energy.
The mission and ethos of the retreat and center are truly in line with the medicinal plant work that they provide onsite. I immediately let interested friends and confidants know that I had found a very special place in the jungle if and when they would like to work with Ayahuasca and other medicinal plants.
Anywhere Farhana may hold space for another retreat I would feel confidant in her judgement and ability to facilitate a healing space. Farhana worked very hard to be available around the clock and wore many hats during the retreat. I can’t think of an example where she was needed but she wasn’t there. Excellent retreat lead!
The women's retreat accompanied by Farhana has been one of the most fulfilling experiences I have experienced. It is a week full of moments of learning about oneself and connecting with nature. Farhana was always accompanying us, guiding us and helping us to heal from the hand of medicine and contact with our feminine strength.
Farhana is a true goddess. I give so much thanks to the forces that guided me to crossing paths with this incredible being.
Farhana facilitates healing in a safe and responsible way. Farhana held the space beautifully, allowing me to notice and connect dots within my own life for myself. Although I did the course with her in August 2021, I still use many of the tools learnt throughout the course in my day to day life till today.
I also attended the Rights of Passage retreat hosted by Farhana and all I can say is WOW! Potent, magical, transformative energy. Farhana facilities healing in a way that it is relatable, accessible and fun. She has very light hearted genuine energy.
I felt comfortable, seen and relaxed. Safety is so important and I often find it hard to let myself be vulnerable because I need to feel that the environment is safe to do so first. Farhana provides safety with ease because her intention is pure and that intention is felt. Farhana’s energy and intention is not only felt through her own essence but also through the type of people she attracted to the space. I was able to meet the most incredible souls at this retreat, allowing me to connect with beautiful women who were all so different yet the same. We had fun, we laughed, we cried, we supported eachother.
Farhana gives you the room to walk your own journey while still making sure you know she is there to support you without any judgement along the way. The support and love is deeply felt. If you are looking for a mentor or a safe space for healing, I would definitely recommend working with Farhana!
Meeting Farhana was an alignment taking place that eventually called me into going on the rites of passage mountain retreat. I had the intention of doing this as an act of love for myself as I had been neglecting myself and dealing with heavy things in my life at the time.
I was blessed enough to be able to bring my beautiful daughter age 3 with me which already was such a powerful healing to be able to create these cycles with and for her.
The weekend felt like a womb, a space of safety, non judgement, free to come with all you hold and as you are, spaces like this that I dont often get a chance to immerse myself into. Farhanas energy alone was so inviting, so gentle and soft that it calls you to become vulnerable.
All the facilitating over this weekend held space so beautifully. Tears were shed, release took place, going deep within oneself unfolded with the assistance of plant medicines, circles, sound journeying and being held by the energy of all the women coming together to heal and awaken the feminine divine. I felt a rise take place. I felt so many shifts. I watched my daughter be so authentically free which brought tears to me and a sense of pride that as a mother I was able to do this for her and for myself.
Every moment, was a moment to be present and that in itself was magickal and was needed. And to top it off the location being held by mountain after mountain with no phones but just a connection to nature and to self and to each other.
For my first retreat ever, this was an experience that I carry with me to this day and I am so grateful and appreciative for each being that was there that added to my healing and growth. My love for sisterhood has grown. My respect for beings who choose the vibration of love, for women who own their womanhood, their wildness, their freedom has had such an impact on who I choose to be in this physical world.
I carry this experience and medicine with me to share it further.
'Farhana is a great teacher and facilitator I have had the honor of sitting in a circle with her on numerous occasions and in a retreat setting. She brings great grounding energy into all her spaces and leads with love and deep integrity her passion for serving and guiding others comes through strong.
She holds space and keeps the sacredness of these spaces to a high standard to really hold the container for transformation and self-healing to occur.
I would highly recommend all her services to help you deeper into knowing yourself while being seen and held through it all.
Farhana is a great guide, teacher, facilitator who turned into an amazing friend and soul sister. I have deep love and respect for all she is and all she is offering the world.
