About Jaime and Ju

We are in a long term exploration to craft places where brave and caring conversations happen about community, wisdom and love. We are curious to know how we build the more beautiful community our hearts know is possible. Jaime brings together rites of passage with meditation, music and movement. Juliana is passionate about compassionate communication, nature and is using and sharing meditation and mindful eating practices as her process of healing.
Jaime and Ju are offering this retreat in partnership to explore integrated awake living.




The experiential learning, independence, love and service I experienced was incredible… I was entrusted with my own self discovery… Heart sharing, being in the silence, having clear communication, connecting to the land, serving the community, recognising that we all exist as one organism.
