Our place is located right at the heart of the spectacular Andean views of the Yunguilla Valley in the south of Ecuador.

You´l love our place because of the profound re connection to nature and inner spiritual growth that you will find in our home.

Mother Nature herself is at the very core of our worldview. We are trying to be true to nature by deepening and implementing permaculture, bio-construction and organic farming techniques,both in the courses we offer and especially in our own practice.

My name is Wilson Ochoa. I am 28 years old. My daily life is constantly related to education, self-development, art, music, organic farming, nutrition and spirituality.
I have been traveling for several years of my life while studying psychology, neurosciences, philosophy and spirituality.
After some years of great experiences my girlfriend and I have decided to combine the best of all what we have received in one holistic retreat center where the ideal circumstances for personal growth and healing could be offered to many more people.
The holistic retreat center that we run is called Inti Kamari and is located in the south of Ecuador. We have made a few rooms available for guests that would like to enjoy of the beautiful energy and nature lingering in a retreat center without the need to attend to a retreat or a workshop.
We also run a small foundation called Sayani where we offer free education of paint, music and neurosciences to the neighboring community. Guests who stay with us are always invited to take part in some of these activities if they feel like it.
Our intention is to hold a space where you can grow, heal and developed in the only way that truly suits you, that is, in your own way.
