From our hectic city lives, to a blissful Italian mountain lake…

Together we journey: from our hectic city lives, to a blissful Italian mountain lake. From an external world of chaos, to the deep reservoirs of wisdom within. From a self that has been wounded, lost, or stuck – to the power, purpose, and grace of who we really are. Mama Medicine helps to heal the past, clear the path, and bring intentions to life.

ELEMENT is an immersive and transformative journey to the shaman within. Retreat into the sacred Mottarone mountain range: wake up every morning to the healing power of the sun, the calming water of Lake D’orta, and the nurture of the wooded mountainside. Here, you will be among the elements—breathing in sacred air, walking on sacred ground, sleeping under the sacred sky. In this extraordinary landscape, Mama Medicine will harness the elements to guide us through an immersive and expanded version of her Medicine Readings, shamanic ceremonies that integrate ancient healing traditions for modern life. 

We will call in the spirits, bathe in clay and honey, and eat vegetable-based meals fresh from the earth. Through dance and song, meditation and the breath, and the powerful medicine of the elements, we connect with our most elemental thing of them all… our deepest self.
