This trip is for us to really unwind into the inspiring jungle and healing waters of Ecuador. A chance to dive into a deeper understanding of the nervous system so we can come back more grounded amidst the changing world. Throughout our experience we will practice daily yoga, meditation and breath work while enjoying the majestic surf, inspiring land and nourishing foods found only in Ayampe Ecuador.
A stronger connection with the nervous system means a more intuitive relationship with the world. With this system in balance, we can access abundance, compassion, and empathy with greater ease. Learning about this system is a step back into our natural state of being and nature is a huge component of this work!

About Wild Child Village
Wild Child Village is truly a dream that has come to fruition straight from the heart.
This magical place is zero-net energy. That means it’s totally sustainable. Built from the vision of Award-Winning filmmaker, Brett Mazurek and designed by Architectural Firm Penda, Wild Child Village blends modern technology with Native American cultural wisdom. The unique structures of the village are built solely with bamboo, rope and recycled materials, which in time will eventually grow into the environment. I think the structure of Wild Child can speak for itself – how cool is this place??
There’s actually nothing else like it – on Earth!
We are so honored to share this special place with you and can’t wait to see you in April!
