Preparatory Talks and Introduction

On arrival to our beautiful retreat centre, surrounded by mountains in the Sacred Valley of Peru, we serve a welcome group lunch banquet with group orientation.  Following this we gather together and speak at length regarding logistical and safety aspects for the retreat in order to ensure a safe and comfortable stay for all. We answer all your questions and address any concerns you may have. We also discuss in detail our approach to plant medicine and how to work with it in the best possible way to get the most from your retreat experience.

We share in depth the origins of Ayahuasca ceremonies, the ancestral traditions, and in particular how our plant medicine shaman work in the ceremony, as well as some of the things to expect throughout the journey.
