While traveling abroad during University, Coby met a Peruvian healer who liberated him from the material realm. “Now that you have entered the Spiritual world”, she told him, “you’ll never have to concern yourself with money or materials, they will manifest effortlessly. Your new path is a spiritual one wrought with its own challenges.”
Coby took this belief to heart, starting a spiritual journey that took him several times around the globe. He spent many years in Latin America reconnecting with the Earth, a connection often severed in modern suburbia.
He sailed the Caribbean, learning just how deeply one can relax. He led groups of teenagers through dozens of countries and across five different continents. He spent much time in India where he lived 'Baba Life', renouncing material comforts and exploring the boundaries of meditation.
But between each chapter of his story, he would always return to his Shamanic teacher in Peru for study and guidance. Coby’s deep rooted interest in Shamanism found its perfect complement when he married Yogini, CJ Ananda. Their combined passion is to find harmony in the combination of these two ancient healing traditions.
Together, Coby and Ananda founded Pura Vidya, whose mission is two fold... to make the ancient traditions of Yoga and Shamanism better understood and more accessible to the West. and to teach cleansing techniques in order to quiet the mind and deepen meditation, for by quieting the mind we will live in harmony with our soul's purpose. www.puravidya.com

It is our greatest honor to help facilitate this profound and transformational cleansing retreat. While many ask us to explain what will happen, we cannot truly answer because Plant Medicine takes us to a realm beyond concepts and words. And while we will provide you some tools to prepare for the cleanse, there is nothing that can truly prepare you for this journey to the Soul. So, we ask that you trust us completely and surrender to the process and know that you are guided and protected by the light you carry within.

“Buddha rejected the philosophy and felt that the gluttonous lifestyle of its disciples was extreme. Instead, Buddha held that consciousness is real and exists independent of the 5 elements. Consciousness exists before we are born and will exist after we die and is, in fact, infinite in all directions.”
“We are all full of good ideas... every one of us! Every person you’ve ever met has had at least one great idea that, if enacted wisely, could impact this planet in beautiful ways. The piece of the puzzle that few accomplish is not the having of the idea but in its implementation.”
