Integrating the Ayahuasca experience
Spirit Plant Journeys is one of the Original & Leading Ayahuasca Retreats nestled in the Sacred Valley of The Incas. Our unique integrative philosophy and approach, traditional Shipibo healers, experienced facilitators
and small, intimate groups are the hallmarks of our difference.
The Tool Of Transformation
We believe Ayahuasca is a medicine that helps us expand our consciousness to enable healing across all aspects of our emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual selves. For us, it is primarily a tool. An extremely powerful and ancient tool best wielded to activate the process of transformation.
When properly applied in a shamanic setting and within our retreat’s integrative framework, Ayahuasca gives us access to our subconscious – the ‘shadow’ module of our being where our unresolved, repressed and traumatic emotional memories exist – and illuminates it with insight and awareness so you can see past experiences in a new way.
“Mirror, Mirror On The Wall…”
Our philosophy is grounded in the understanding that Ayahuasca is a tool which mirrors back to us the relationships we hold with ourselves and every aspect of our lives. Through the seeing of our own reflection, we are able to acknowledge then transform our old, outdated ways of being, behaving and relating that stand as barriers to living our fullest potential.
This is where true transformation can take place. It is a very present space. A pure heart space. One that can be experienced as both heaven and hell. The work we guide you through here, in the place where healing happens, requires your absolute openness and willingness to let go of your past stories that no longer serve your fruitful evolution. Throughout your entire process, our experienced facilitators are there to hold up the lamp to help you see the reflection and access the healing.
Many years of care and experience have gone into creating a unique and grounded integrative approach that serves to bridge the teachings of Ayahuasca and support deep shadow work, trauma resolution and the undoing of self-limiting patterns. We work with you through 1:
We Work With Only Trusted Shipibo Healers
Our ceremonies are led by an extraordinary family of Ayahuasca shamans from the ancient Shipibo-Conibo tribe located on the Ucayali River of the Amazon.
After 13 years working with many Ayahuasca shamans from various traditions, we were guided to this particular family of healers for their genuinely powerful work, their deep devotion to the craft and their right relationship with Ayahuasca. Unfortunately, as the popularization of Ayahuasca rapidly rises, these values are becoming increasingly difficult to find in Ayahuasceros.
We are absolutely honored to work with this ancient indigenous healing tradition and healers with such a long and trusted reputation as our own.

Intimate Groups For An Optimal Focus On Your Journey
We truly care about our guests and we feel that such a personal and deep experience can only be held with a down-to-earth, intimate and kindred family spirit.
That’s why we limit our group sizes to a maximum capacity of 12 guests. After years holding ceremonies, we believe that this is the optimal size for your most potent, transformative and enriching healing journey.
Highly-Trained, Experienced Facilitators
Our team of highly-trained and experienced facilitators play a crucial role in supporting and guiding your healing process being directed on an energetic level by Ayahuasca and our Shipibo shamans.
With decades of experience guiding the Ayahuasca experience, our incredible facilitators create a kindred family spirit that supports a space of safety, compassion and trust throughout your plant medicine journey.
Their deep devotion to this work and alignment to our integrative philosophy is vital to the transformative efficacy of your experience.
A Grounded Integrative Approach For The Real World
While ceremonies themselves are highly transformative, the process of integrating Ayahuasca’s teachings into your life is perhaps the most important piece of plant medicine work. Many years of care and experience have gone into creating our unique and grounded integrative approach that serves to bridge the teachings of Ayahuasca and support deep shadow work, trauma resolution and the undoing of self-limiting patterns.
We work with you to reinforce and flex the muscle between your conscious and subconscious self. Ultimately, providing the framework to increase your understanding of ceremony experiences and tools to continue the transformation process in your everyday life.

The importance of Integration
The process of integrating Ayahuasca’s teachings into your life is perhaps the most crucial element of deep plant medicine work. Ayahuasca often presents your truth in abstract and symbolic ways. Integration is the process of exploring and understanding your ceremony experience and developing tools to put this understanding into practice in your daily life.
This is where the true work of your healing journey happens.
Integration allows you to embody and carry forward the insights revealed to you while working with plant medicine. It is just as important as your ceremony
Prepare yourself for an Ayahuasca retreat.
What is pre-integration? It is important to feel ready to embark on a Journey like this. Preparation involves the Ayahuasca Pre-diet but also aligning with your intentions. What would you like to open up to? What would you like to work on during this retreat? What is it that makes you think Ayahuasca could be beneficial for you? Our staff is trained to help you prepare for your Ayahuasca retreat.
With over 14 Years of experience with Ayahuasca, our preparation and integration specialist guides you and helps you to prepare before you come on one of our retreats. This service is offered for free as we believe it is crucial to be well informed, prepped and ready to embark on such a big Journey towards a new life.
We believe Ayahuasca is not meant for everyone and Ayahuasca is not the one and only answer. We see it as a tool, a tool for healing and transformation. This is why we offer free calls where we go through a deep screening process with each and every one of our guests. In order to make sure you are physically, mentally but also emotionally ready and safe to embark on an ayahuasca Journey.
What happens after your retreat?
Ayahuasca is not a miracle potion. Ayahuasca is a tool that can help you open up to your spiritual self, to your subconscious self and who you truly are. It is a tool that will help you open up to life, to different ways of being. Ayahuasca helps us expand our consciousness, awareness of self and spiritual connection.
This means a million different things and is very unique for every individual.
After going on a big journey like this one, it is important to understand that the ceremony begins when you go home. Ayahuasca plants a seed in you, expands your awareness, helps you heal your trauma, and might even reset your whole being. But you need to put it into practice. What does that mean?
When you go back to your patterns, to everything you know and everything that knows you so well, you must maintain a practice that will help you to stay centered and conscious of what you do. On retreat we teach you tools and practices that help you to integrate the experience into your daily life.
This is where the true healing happens, when we start becoming aware of our relationship we hold towards everything. Our job, our work, our life, our wife, our children, etc.
The true healing happens when we take 100% responsibility for everything we experience and understand that we create everything around us. Even though we might not be responsible for our wounds, we are responsible for healing them and feeling better, for changing what no longer serves us and finding a happy relationship towards our inner self, which ultimately reflects towards everything that is around us.
