Living in Liberation  Retreat



Welcome to a sacred space to explore the fullness of your being.


Where you will experience a profound return to WHOLENESS.

Where all aspects of you are welcome.

Where you will be held and supported to lean in & let go.

To really let go. 

Let go of who you think you should be

and taste more of who you truly are. 






You will be held in a safe container and lovingly guided to peel back the layers of mind, ego and conditioning, face your fears, meet your edges to taste the sweetness of liberation that is on the other side. 

When was the last time you felt fully free?

  • 2 Nights Sacred Grandmother Ceremony

You will be held in a safe container and lovingly

guided to peel back the layers of mind, ego and conditioning.  

You'll find that it is easier than you think to

meet your edges and face your fears

- and that it is so worth it to taste the sweetness

of liberation that is on the other side. 

There is something extraordinary about the field that we create in these retreats. Many people have said they have been the best days of their lives. I attribute the to the feeling of being at home with yourself. That deep peace that comes with not needing to waste any energy in an internal battle of what you think you should do or be like to be accepted and loved. To finally have a space where you let all the parts of yourself you've shut down be seen and felt. And let the original innocence of your soul shine and come out to play. 


It's likely that whatever is holding you back in your life is the very key to stepping into a more liberated and empowered way of living. 


The medicine will illuminate blockages and help us peel away the layers to the deeper truths within. You will receive tools to help embody that truth by releasing traumatic imprints, conditioning, unconscious belief systems & programs so that you may simply live in freedom and peace.

Our commitment is to create a safe space of unity so the illusion of separation dissolves, creating an experience of deeper connection to each other and to all life.


Together we cast a circle of unconditional love, free of judgement where you can let down your guard, and feel accepted as you simply be yourself. During this time we experience living together as a community, where we remember what it feels like to belong & come home to ourselves.

Hola I'm Ixchel! I’m a ceremonialist, community builder, spiritual midwife, retreat facilitator, dancer, musician, entrepreneur, coach, permaculturist and eternal optimist who is passionate about human potential. In 2012 the portal of music opened up for me and I started playing guitar and receiving songs


I am dedicating my life to the liberation of all beings, to the remembrance of our divinity, to the embodiment of our full potential. 


Of course this starts with myself so I am right here with you on this continual journey of shedding the ego and remembrance of who we truly are. 


My journey with psychedelics began 30 years ago at the age of 14 setting me on the path of self realization. In 2004 I experienced the most profound homecoming in my first ceremony with Ayahuasca. I got to connect with the part of myself beyond name, beyond time and space that has always been and will always be - free of the ego that was identified with any of my triumphs or failures. 


Since then Ayahuasca and Huachuma have been my greatest teachers in helping me to be a better human. I have received so much from these master teachers that for the past 8 years I have been in full service to sharing their gifts around the world in ceremonial retreats.

Creating immersive experiences of devotion & liberation is my greatest joy! 

I weave together my passions and the practices that are my pillars - nature immersion, yoga, breathwork, sound healing, singing circles, dance, sweat lodge, authentic relating, shamanic and cacao ceremonies, satsang & sharing circles.


I am the mother of a passionate 16 year old artist who has been raised with inspiration by a village in the community I co-founded in Bali with his dad 16 years ago. 

These days I have my hands in the earth in Costa Rica. I am currently creating Yacumama - an eco village, food & medicine forest and community retreat center for transformational experiences in the south Pacific side of Costa Rica.


I bring the energy of the divine mother with fierce unconditional love, radical presence & authenticity to hold you through anything that arises


You will be supported in this space by my dear beloveds Kita, Haylee & Pao who will also share their exquisite music.

We look forward to welcoming you! 


Absolutely profound life changing experience! Thank you for facilitating every part of the journey in the highest integrity.

This retreat changed my life and supported me in infinite ways! It was such an incredible safe container for the journey back to love and empowerment to step into my life's purpose.

-Tish Steenkamp

Ixchel embodies the divine mother, creating a potent container of unconditional love for her work. In ceremonies with Ixchel, I have been able to connect to the deepest parts of myself, reaching new levels of forgiveness, self-compassion and healing from trauma. I think of Ixchel as my spiritual momma and am exceptionally grateful to have her in my life.

– David Langer
