Willkamayu Spirit

About us

Willkamayu Spirit is a family home that works with Andean and Amazonian entheogenic plants: Ayahuasca, Chakruna, Wachuma (San Pedro). The plants are able to heal you energetically, mentally, physically and emotionally. Our intention with Willkamayu Spirit is to connect, heal and to raise consciousness, to deepen the connection to ourselves, others and nature. Merging inner and outer landscapes to replant your spirit and the spirit of Humanity.

Within ayahuasca ceremony we take the greatest care to listen and nurture you through the healing process ensuring that you are well supported. The ceremonies are humbly and capably assisted by the calming presence of John and Janneke, here to support your internal experience, encouraging you inward, helping you to release and cleanse if you need to, and to make you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the experience.

Ceremonies begin around 8 - 9pm and go through to the early hours, a room and bed are provided in the later stages of your experience. The effects of Ayahuasca remain into the early morning so we do our best to make you comfortable and settle down to relax for the night, staying present with our intention so that Ayahuasca can work with us in our dreams.

In the morning we enjoy a healthy breakfast and share our experiences with the Maestro (shaman Peru), followed by a  special offering of gratitude to Pachamama. There are plenty of opportunities to have one to one chats and ask questions, you will be in a loving nurturing environment and we encourage sharing as it really helps to process the experience. 

What to expect from an ayahuasca ceremony:

  • An intimate and personal environment 

  • 1/2 (or more according to your needs) ceremonies with Ayahuasca

  • Personal sharing with the Maestro

    Our intention with San Pedro, Wachuma ceremony is to connect, heal and share consciousness , merging internal and external landscapes in order to replant your Spirit and the Spirit of humanity.

    Our San Pedro, Wachuma ceremonies take us out into the open countryside, cradled by the surrounding mountains (Apus) that hold so much significance in traditional Andean ceremonies and culture. We take a short walk in silence along winding paths, through Incan ruins to special spaces overlooking the epic landscape of the Sacred Valley.

     We share regular ceremonies, at least once a week, with Wachuma, depending on our guests requirements and duration of stay. We host ceremonies when they are felt and required, guided by the cycle of the moon, we always stay open and flexible to our guests needs at a given time.

     Within our sacred space you will receive one to one attention on your healing process, from an initial consultation on your health and intentions, teachings about the sacred plants, to a personal chat with your Maestro / Maestra.

    Within ceremony we take the greatest care to listen and nurture you through the healing process ensuring that you are well supported. We share moments of movement and moments of stillness, moments of laughter and then of silence, all very organically and in a non obtrusive way. We are here to support your internal experience, help you to release and cleanse if you need to, and to make you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the experience

    If we have musicians present then we may share some music, as well as a special offering of gratitude to Pachamama and the Mountains, closing the ceremony at around 6pm.

    Following the ceremony we share our experiences as a group. The effects of San Pedro remain into the evening so we do our best to settle down and relax, staying present with our intention so that San Pedro can work with us in our dreams.

Jhon and Janneke are truly special people. The knowledge and insight into the questions of life that I was able to gain from the time I spent with them is something that I will never forget and am so grateful for. They provide a beautiful space and expert experience for working with Mother Ayahuasca and Grandfather Wachuma. ~Ben

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. 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.
