About us

Located just 40 minutes from La Paz, at 3,800Mts (13,000ft) above sea -level, Allkamari is located on the Canyon and Lagoon of the Souls, a sacred place to the Aymara inhabitants of the Andean highlands, who come here to offer burnt-offering ceremonies to the imposing Mountain Gods that overlook our Valley, Mount Illimani and Mururata.

We have built our center respecting the sacredness of the place and honoring the energies that surround us, enlisting them for the porpouse of healing, nourishing and welcoming all our guests. 

Our structures are built mostly of locally manufactured adobe in unique vaulted-ceiling designs with passive solar heating, providing a wonderful warm and nourishing atmosphere, perfect for relaxation, inspiration and introspection.

From Allkamari you can access walking or cicling trails(easy, medium and difficult), as well as Inca Trails that cross the Andes into lush semi Tropical Valleys with

      Metamorphosis, the Place

    This is the place that has witnessed my deepest transformations - the shedding of my heaviest veils. Its structure is ideal for staying one day, a week, or a moth (which I've done twice now, during the Shamanic Retreat of january/february 2014 & 2015). Within its limits the strangest society is formed, an ipso-facto family of deep seekers, great masters, yogic enthusiasts, lecturers, retreat groups, tourists keen on the beautiful surrounding landscape and passers-by that maybe come with their families for a mid-day culinary moment. However, each group has their special place, and Allkamari's design knows how importantly space and motive are intertwined. The Kiva - a north-american native temple, built on the blessing of Beautiful Painted Arrow - is the place where ceremonies are confined, leaving both the healing and the enjoying (although sometimes they may collide within ceremonies!) their ground of being. Its resort infrastructure is well above most hotels in La Paz, leaving not only tourists, but tired pilgrims of the plants also, deeply thankful of its services. The crew working for your full satisfaction is quite friendly, having built on Allkamari not only a career, but a kind of family. From the cooks to the shamans, everyone has your well-being at heart, so that the food is also healthy and natural, flowing effortlessly in the energy stream that Allkamari musters to call its own, possibly being the perfect prism for the soul of the Valle de las Ánimas.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To be. Susan

Retreat Guru's Vision

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
