Alquimia is a sacred space in between the Andes and the Amazon of Colombia where creative arts, ancestral medicine and conscious living are combined for self-realization and metamorphosis to occur.
At Alquimia we encourage the expression of the inner truth through the physical and the spiritual, the uplifting of the mind as a clear function of a more profound connection with all the parts. We host individuals from any paths of life and assist with the therapy of choice.
We work playfully with entheogens and we act as mediators in between you and the magical self. We offer interactive teachings and caring presence in order to guide you to self-healing and research on cosnciousness.
Alquimia is an unconventional educational centre and our main aim is to create awareness and deep understanding on the human relationship with master plants passing through ethnobotany and shamanism.
