EITL – Retiro Carmen Vicente.png
After a happy meeting and sharing between Carmen Vicente and Isabel Angélica in November 2023, this Spiritual Leader arrives at the Terras de Lyz® Initiatory School in Portugal to open a mixed retreat on The Waters of Life where we will commune around the Journeys of Divine Integration.
The purpose of these days is to inform and reflect on shamanic practices.
We will:
- Reflect on what is a Blessing?
- Deepen the relationship between prayer as a manifestation of the word - what it means to elaborate and communicate through a prayer.
- Learn why a staff is a sacred object.
- How a stone ‘cleanses’ the body of tired energies.

In this Retreat we will make objects that help us to understand some of the ancient forms of health care present in the Andean traditions of South America.

Anyone over the age of 18 can take part and women who are menstruating can also take part.

We will experience a Temazcal Ceremony in one of the many different designs that exist.

Carmen Vicente
Carmen Vicente, an acclaimed medicine woman from the Andes, is the leader of this unique ritual, where human beings come together to revive the memory of the Earth's ancient cultures and renew awareness of the relationship between the spiritual dimension and earthly life.
Medicine Woman, Creator of the School of Secrets, Leader of the Vision Quest, the Dance of the Sun and the Dance of the Spirits.

Carmen Vicente is a medicine woman who has been sharing indigenous wisdom traditions around the world for over 30 years. Born in Ecuador, she is heir to a traditional spiritual lineage. From birth, Carmen was recognised in her community for her healing abilities. As a bearer of the sacred art of altars, she has held countless ceremonial circles in Europe and the Americas.

At the same time, she has also dedicated herself to rescuing the art of handicrafts with women's organisations in marginalised sectors of the country, such as prisons and other vulnerable populations, and education programmes for indigenous and peasant children with UNICEF-UNESCO.

Since 2004, Carmen has led women's meetings in Ecuador, Chile, Colombia, the United States, Australia and Europe, sharing with them the path of rediscovering the origin of their power and their responsibilities in modern times, as midwives of creation and guardians of fire.

She regularly participates as a speaker at various festivals and educational events. She also leads various projects in South, Central and North America and Europe.
