Explore the details of our retreat below.
Led by our Shipibo Maestros, our retreat’s core ceremonial work occurs across four intensive Ayahuasca ceremonies.
The ceremonies take place at twilight in our cute and comfortable ceremony space, Maloca.
The Shipibo shaman’ hold loving and powerful medicine.
Starting up with a gentle dose in order to ease everyone in the experience with trust and openness. We develop a relationship with the Ayahuasca plant medicine and the realm of the plants.
Much can happen during these four ceremonies, no one can predict what healing will ‘look like’. However, there is always a sense of perfection in how the medicine unfolds and surprises us.
It is all about allowing, not ‘fixing’ but rather allowing ourselves to open up to what is. When we allow and open up, true, deep and long-lasting healing takes place.
Led by our Paco, a traditional shaman from the Q’eros culture of the high Andes of Peru, this sacred ceremony is a highlight of our retreat. It is such a beautiful and uplifting way to open up our hearts before we dive into our work, while also giving us the opportunity to honor the rituals, people, and the land of the Andes.
Our mountain lodge sets the absolutely perfect container for our healing work to unfold. Tucked away beneath one of the mighty Apus of Sacred Valley, ‘Petra’ – as the name suggests – is energetically solid and supportive like a rock. The lodge consists of a traditional Andean farmhouse, A wooden Maloca hut and a 7 Bedroom Lodge embraced by sprawling wild, beautiful gardens. Complete with vistas of the surrounding mountain areas that are undeniably breathtaking. Each room is equipped with comfy beds and hot showers. Our dining room with tea, water facilities and open living spaces to relax and enjoy the panoramic view of the mountains..
We only work with trusted massage therapists who understand plant medicine work and who let their experience guide their touch.
Plant baths help us to cleanse and strengthen the external body. Assisting us to clear resistances which we are struggling to release and let go of.
We find integrational practices to be a crucial compliment to the ceremonial work. Our integration specialists tailor each session based on the energy of the group on each particular day. The sessions are soft, restorative and meditative on days when a gentle practice is necessary. Becoming more physical and energetic at times when energies amongst the group call for a more vigorous practice.
No matter what type of session, our workshops, Self-inquiries and classes are the perfect way to clear the mind, invoke a state of focus and revitalise your mind, body, and spirit.
Ayahuasca Diet Food
Our wonderful chef prepares our meals with love and creative flair. Julian comes from the remote Q’ero community – one of the last Andean communities to be reached by the Europeans. The Q’ero tradition and ancient Q’ero healing practices are still intact today. We are very conscious of the energy carried through in our food. This is particularly important when we are in powerful plant medicine retreat. Fresh local ingredients and Ayahuasca friendly dishes nourish us throughout the retreat. We do eat locally caught trout as well as chicken on an occasion throughout the retreat. However, the menu is primarily Vegetarian/Vegan and Gluten-Free. We have no problems catering for allergies and special diets.
There is ample opportunity to speak with facilitators and the shamans as we are constantly present for the groups. Our facilitators translate live and are highly proficient in Spanish.
