Playing with Infinity
MARCH 6-11, 2022
One Infinity Retreat is never like the other.
Sometimes we laugh and cry. Sometimes we breathe and meditate. Sometimes we are blissed out, simply enjoying existence. Sometimes we heal our wounds by facing the most challenging experiences of our lives.
We always do it together and come out stronger, happier, and more alive.
An Infinity Retreat is always a gathering of beautiful crazy souls who have followed a calling and who are brave enough to jump into the unknown!
With more than 30 years of joint work experience, Anke and Marie Lou create a dance between the traditional shamanic framework and the western psycho-therapeutic models. Combining the best of these worlds they create a package that in itself sets a new standard for the transformative work with plant medicine.
To expand your perspective they shine a light upon your blockages and help you see what lies beyond. With wisdom, love, and understanding they make you relax deeply into the experience. To encourage healing they create a safe container where you are welcome with all your wounds and desires, with all that you are, have been, and can be…
With its remarkable intelligence ayahuasca will change your view on the universe and on yourself as an intrinsic part of it.
Each experience is different according to your unique energetic makeup, your outer circumstances, and your inner belief system at this specific point in space and time.
You will always experience cleaning, healing, and teachings. Ayahuasca will shine a light upon what you already know, on what you don’t know yet, and also on what you don’t know that you don’t know. It has the potential to show you your innate place within infinity.

I have participated in a number of plant medicine ceremonies that cleared emotional and energetic blockages leaving me feeling lighter and more centered. My time with Anke and Marie Lou at Imiloa took me to the next level. Their medicine, their individual attention, and their insights and guidance were instrumental in helping me have an incredibly transformative experience. What more can I say? I am eternally grateful to them for their love and for providing such a safe place to go deep. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I would like to thank you! Three years ago you brought me in contact with the medicine for the first time. And that changed my life completely. My attitude towards life, the world around me and above all towards my own self has changed fundamentally.
Sometimes, when I pause and look back, I cannot quite believe that this person of that time was actually me. Not only have I taken some steps to see who I truly am and what I can be – with your help it was possible to discard many of the patterns that have destroyed, inhibited, restrained, constrained me – drugs and those shackles that have plagued my spirit itself, to name just a few of them.
Thank you for your work and your patience – especially when I sometimes tried to escape and ran into the opposite direction. Thank you for your perseverance, even when I was overcome by self satisfaction and excessive comfort:) Thank you for always sharing your knowledge and insights and helping me gain a better understanding of the larger and smaller contexts.
Briefly put: thank you for guiding me on a journey that makes my life richer, deeper and much more fulfilling. And above it all, thank you for giving me tools that allow me to continue this work also by myself.
I have had the honor and the pleasure of working with them both in a personal and professional capacity. I’ve been a participant in their experiences and was comfortable, willing, and excited enough to bring into my own experiences that I run for people.
In both instances their level of grace and composure, the depth of knowledge and the quality of experience has been paradigm-shifting for me, it has set a new standard that I look for in people now, and a new standard that I look for in myself.
They have this gravitational pull that helps you rise up to the challenges you’re up against, to meet the person you know you have inside of you. If you’re considering, if you can feel the call inside of you, you really can’t find better guidance.
Their combination and dance of Western psychotherapy and traditional Amazonian shamanic frames has again set a new standard for me, creating a kind of Neo-transformative package that is itself a step above. Thank you, for everything you have done for me and the individuals we have brought to you. Jump right in!
Anke and Marie Lou are undoubtedly two of the most extraordinary instances of humanity I have ever had the joy to encounter. Their loving presence in this world is a great blessing to all. When I first had the honor of sitting in ceremony with them, I remember experiencing the following revelation: “Wow, this is what is possible for humanity. It is within our potential to become ascended beings while still on Earth.” The two of them possessed such a grace, groundedness, centeredness, and lucidity that they struck me as existing at a level of consciousness not far from that of bodhisattva masters. They exhibited a profound intrinsic authority—the sort that can arise only as a result of venturing deep into the caverns of oneself and one’s reality to confront whatever dragons and unicorns one might find there. “We’ve been to Hell and back together,” Anke once told me.
As I spent more time with Marie Lou and Anke in and out of ceremony, my Love for them continued to expand. They approach their work with a joy, lightness, inner strength, and humility that is akin to fresh water from a mountain stream. They possess a remarkable awareness of their oh-so-human foibles and are able to view their own shadows with tenderness and humor. Someone once told me, “Never trust a shaman who cannot laugh in ceremony.” I came to understand the wisdom in these words via my experiences of Anke and Marie Lou’s pristine balance of reverence and levity. When it is time to focus and ground, they focus and ground. When it is time to laugh, they laugh. When it is time to be radically honest, they are radically honest.
When I think of Anke and Marie Lou, the image that comes to mind is that of two mysterious trickster sorceresses bearing magical healing potions from otherworldly realms. The two of them seem to be manifesting an archetypal Yin-and-Yang-esque partnership, as each of their energies complements and contrasts the other’s in a Sacred Dance of Duality. Anke’s energy is like a compassionate yet sharp-taloned eagle, a red-hot katana ready to slice through vast layers of delusion at a moment’s notice. Marie Lou’s eyes are like windows to the abyss; her energy is that of a shadowy yet playful serpent destined to transcend all cages. Their unforgettable smiles give you the feeling that they see and understand realities you cannot presently imagine. It is no exaggeration to say that my life has been enriched immeasurably as a result of being divinely guided to these powerful enchantresses. I am tremendously grateful to call them my friends, collaborators, teachers, and fellow human beings.
I attended Marie Lou and Anke’s retreat at the Imiloa Institute. I have been to several other retreats before and I have to say, this one was by far the best! They really care about their clients.
I have had the utmost privilege and pleasure of being in ceremony with Anke Evore and Marie Lou Evore…they are the REAL DEAL! The space they hold is super clean and ideal for doing deep work, they work with integrity and carry an immense amount of Wisdom, they quite simply are beautiful people and Souls.
