The Sacred Union


JUNE 14th - 17TH
Solsetrid, Reykjavik, Iceland

This retreat will be a life changing experience, an initiatory process to fulfil the deepest commitment that a human being can undertake; inner marriage.

The sacred union of the inner feminine and masculine, the unity between the sacred light and the sacred darkness of consciousness.

during the Summer Solstice, the Spirit of Iceland undergoes a magnificent transformation into a
realm of unparalleled brilliance and enchantment.

Join us as we come together under the dazzling celestial exhibition of the luminous arctic sky,
where the sun bathes the land in its golden embrace, casting vibrant hues across the landscape.

Experience the awe-inspiring spectacle as daylight extends its warm touch, filling the air with an

Ishtriahan, had a life changing experience 16 years ago, which he describes like this:

"I felt called to make a commitment to my own Spirit. To orchestrate a sacred union within myself and unite the mother and father within me. I met an indigenous priestess of the Mapuche people in my homeland, Chile. I explained to her my calling and she told me: “This is an ancient ritual of our people that has been lost over generations.”

I asked if she could hold a ceremony of inner marriage for my being. And she did. After this sacred union, I was able to dedicate my life to following the path of my higher purpose and authentically express my real self.

This initiation gave me so much clarity about my purpose and so much power in my life. I have decided to share this tradition with those who feel called to do as I did".

That is when he decided to invite along a dear friend that has been walking a similar path, Benjo, and together create this unique experience.


The purpose of this sacred union is to create a ritual that helps you commit to the path of your Spirit.

When you marry someone, it is not the end of the story, it is the beginning. You can see this union as the beginning of your story, the opening of a door to your authentic self.

It is the rite of sacred priesthood, the marriage with one’s own being. We will revive and share an ancestral rite that used to be present in all traditions, but was lost little by little over time.

Our goal is to recover and reclaim this ancient knowledge, and to reinterpret it for today’s times by creating a sacred space to initiate and confirm our commitment to the service of life.

what you can expect from this retrat

We will meet for this retreat in Iceland, one of the most unique places on Earth; for some, it is even the heart of the planet. For three days and three nights during the winter solstice - the period of greatest darkness - we will experience an initiatory process of unity with the sacred source of life and our own divinity.


Through workshops, rituals and practices related to alchemy and shamanism, we will heal and release karmic ties that bind us to our feminine and masculine lineages. This will prepare our bodies and spirits for the ceremony of inner marriage on the final evening.


Through this process, we can transcend and honour our lineages to peacefully integrate the unity of our roots and our own being. We will close this experience by praying together for unity and harmony for humanity, the Earth and all its living beings.

"Accompaniment was very nice, soft and powerful at the same time and also playful. The music guided us smoothly through the ceremony. It was a powerful moment to mark a starting point of transformation within ourselves. I enjoyed it immensely and think back with great pleasure."



"From this retreat I take home a new version of me, connected and centered. I was able to connect to my lineage, with all my ancestors and allow myself to rebirth into a new version. With my feminine and masculine energies balanced. A more conscious and authentic being."
