A sacred purification shamanic retreat at Jilling Terraces, Uttarakhand.
We live in a society where the common God is money, the way to relate to each other is competition (if not violence) and to have intimacy is through sex.
We're destroying our planet, Mother Earth, and every day some species of animal or plant are vanishing forever. Those few Native people who are still living in harmony with Nature since thousands of years, who have been spared from massacre or alienation, have a wisdom that doesn't come from any idea or theory but from being in deep communion with Mother Earth and all Creation.
Some of our indigenous teachers have understood that in order to stop this destruction,this madness,they have to share their wisdom with us before the Earth is wiped out forever...Before all of humanity is lost.
The Circle Way teaches us how to live in harmony with each other and all our relations, to cooperate instead of competing, to find real intimacy through love and respect. We'll learn to look inside our hearts and heal all the wounds we carry within us. We embrace a new way to look at others as our brothers and sisters, who with all their pain and struggle, are sharing this human adventure with us.

The sweat lodge (also called purification ceremony or simply sweat) is a hut, typically dome-shaped and made with natural materials, used by Indigenous peoples of the Americas for ceremonial shamanic steam baths and prayer.
Take part in building a traditional Sweat lodge under the guidance of Luca and sit in a purifying sacred Sweat Lodge ceremony among the benevolent mountain spirits of the Himalayas.
Luca De Santis
For over 20 years, Luca has been working together with a Native American elder of the Wampanoag nation, Manitonquat-Medicine Story, to spread the wisdom of the Circle Way and to bring people back to a true connection with Mother Earth and the Great Mystery.
He has been leading Sweat Lodges and Vision Quests since 25 years. His work is rooted in his direct experiences with native people, shamans, medicine men and women from all over the world. He has traveled for many years in the Americas, most of all in Mexico where he met the Spirit of the Grandfather. He still attends to the ceremonies of the Sacred Fire of Itzachilatlan and shares the Circle Way in Europe and in India.
Be transported to a spectacular Healing Sanctuary 7000 ft high up in the clouds along the South Gola range in Uttarakhand. A hike through the meandering misty forests will bring you to a vintage 100 years old British colonial home, a luxury eco-retreat amidst pristine Himalayan wilderness. Settle into the quaint comforting ambience of this unique jungle property and begin your intitiation into the CIrcle Way.
"In these days we'll come again together as a tribe, sitting in a circle around the fire, sharing our stories, our feelings, our hearts, as our ancestors all over the world have done for thousands of years.
We'll celebrate our re-connection with Mother Earth and the spirits of Creation with the Sacred ceremony of the Sweat Lodge" - Luca De Santis
