Four River Institute
Cuatro Rios (Four Rivers) Institute is dedicated to curating contemplative and experiential learning for the advancement of consciousness, ecology, human transformation, and leadership. The Institute will be forged through partnerships with ancient and indigenous wisdom traditions, new thought leaders, spiritual scientists, and transformational educators and innovators.
Our goal is to create a resource center to give guidance and support for those seeking to transform their own lives and help create a more enlightened and regenerative world. Course offerings will be available online, as well as in-person intensives and retreats. We have chosen World Heritage site Cuenca, Ecuador, as the physical home of the Institute. It is a beautiful city, nestled in a mountain basin, surrounded by indigenous values, healing and creative arts and delicious cultural cuisine.
We embrace a learning environment that will prepare you for the path ahead. Our classes incorporate traditional learning styles as well as hands-on experiences. Course offerings will be available online, as well as in-person intensives and retreats.
