After a week experiencing our Ayahuasca retreat in the Amazon, you will fly from Iquitos to Cusco to begin to explore the Sacred Valley retreat portion. Our center is nestled in the mountains on the expansive banks of the Urubamba river, high in the Andes Mountains. You will be working with traditional plant medicines and local expert guides to bring you this unique offering that spans the spectrum of what it means to experience Peru. We are honored to be the only center that offers the diversity and depth of specialized knowledge our team passionately provides.
Upon arrival, you will be greeted by our loving staff of facilitators and healers. Then, after a good night’s sleep and wake feeling refreshed and revitalized to begin your work with the medicines.
San Pedro, or Huachuma as it is called in Quechua. San Pedro is a gentle and loving medicine, filled with warmth and light. This ceremony is done during the day, so you’ll have the chance to step outside and bask in the beautiful landscape, both within and without. Those who work with this medicine describe the essence of the experience to be an opening of consciousness and connection to the oneness all around us, of which we are all a part. Through this opening and connection, the ability to release and heal on all levels, including physical, is presented. We are honored to provide this medicine for you in its native land, the Andean mountains, and help you integrate the experience in a loving and grounded way. Through the work of both Ayahuasca and San Pedro, in addition to our other therapies, our guests find a balanced and deeply effective healing experience.
One of the best parts of our Sacred Valley Spiritual center, is the abundance of nature and the myriad of opportunities to reconnect to it. Throughout your stay with us, you’ll have the chance to experience the full bounty that Pachamama offers us in the beautiful Peruvian countryside. We understand that working with the medicines isn’t always easy, as we are sometimes brought face-to-face with parts of ourselves we have avoided for so long. This is important work, and necessary for true healing, and so we find that balancing this effort with opportunities to decompress, play, and connect with others in our slice of paradise translates to a more effective and fulfilling healing journey. As we begin to more fully open ourselves up to love and our true selves, a clear truth is revealed: Put simply, life is about love and connection – to ourselves, to others, and to the Earth. It is our sincerest joy to offer you the opportunities that can guide you deeper into this truth for yourself, in whatever unique way that is for you.
And so, with the mountains as our backdrop, explore and play in Mother Nature’s playground. Take a trip to the little town and cultural hub of Pisac, where you’ll find a vibrant market with all manner of gifts, colorful foods, and sometimes even cultural dance performances. Or, trek 45 minutes from our Center through fields, farms, and other country beauties to Maras, where we will find the famous Pre Incan Salt mines.
