The Cuyamungue Institute 



Each workshop contains a specifically designed series of Ecstatic Trance Postures to provide the context for a journey of self-discovery. We go deep within utilizing the Ecstatic Trance Postures Method – which includes a established ritual journey method. Introductory workshops are prerequisites for advanced classes. There may be adjustments to dates, times and details, and additional events and workshops will be added. Contact us prior to booking flights and making travel arrangement.

Extend Your Stay

Directly either before or after your workshop are several exciting local events in the Santa Fe area. Workshop participants are invited to stay a few extra days. This is for workshop participants only. We offer this for those who wish to come early or stay after workshops to better accommodate your travel days, and a chance to stay with us while you explore all that Santa Fe has to offer. Nightly fees at CI are $30/night. This includes DIY breakfast the next morning. You’ll have access to the kitchen to make your own meals with food you bring. Note that you may need to accommodate our cleaning crew’s schedule with a limited window to get ready for the next workshop. READ MORE

Regarding Coronavirus and workshop cancellation. With students traveling from around the US and the World we will continue to monitor the spread of Coronavirus. Students will get a full refund of the workshop fee if it becomes necessary to cancel workshops from our side.

As for travel arrangements, based on these concerns, we recommend only booking flights that are refundable and/or allow changes. Some students may want to choose to purchase travel insurance.
