About This Center
Welcome to Amaruanka Healing Center. Here, you can come for a private, small group, or couples retreat, book a private cacao ceremony, receive personal guidance, practice and learn yoga, or register for our certified ceremonial massage training.
Our healing center is surrounded by nature, and nestled at the bottom of sacred mountains, with the sound of the birds. We provide single or double occupancy accommodation, with hot gas shower, access to a fully equipped kitchen, and delicious vegetarian meals prepared by our chef.
This is a beautiful and quiet sanctuary in nature, where we can guide you on the path of healing, self-love, and sacred relationships.
The retreat with Amaruanka was a revealing experience that helped me heal and restore my inner vision. — Tatiana, Russia
Venue HighlightsAs soon as you enter our healing center, you will be immersed by the plant kingdom. Our luscious garden will bring you back in harmony with nature. Everyday, the hummingbirds arrive to drink from the flowers. Here, there is no access to motor vehicles, so you can fully enjoy the natural sounds and habitat.
We are in close proximity to town and all amenities, yet tucked away amongst eucalyptus trees and a gorgeous view of the sacred Apu mountains. There is a river close by, so we receive the sound of water from the canal. This is truly a sanctuary.
AccommodationsYou can choose between single occupancy, double occupancy, or private bedroom for couples. All rooms include comfortable double beds, wood floors, wooden beams, large wardrobe, and hot gas shower. The view is incredible, with only nature visible.

I am grateful I found Diana Deer Hawk and her work. She has a beautiful touch and her services are truly healing. I came during a week that one of her students that had been there for a month they were working on people in the community. How lucky I feel :) After the first session with both Diana and her student I signed up for 12 more private sessions with Diana. As a healer I know the work that is involved in going deep into traumas and creating transformation Having some one present with her level of gifts has helped me tremendously. I am very grateful and would recommend Diana to anyone that needs transformation. Thank you :)

For my time being around Cusco I was looking for a ceremony that would support me in cultivating self love and finding my way to my heart. Today I arrived at the wonderful Amaruanka healing center, taking a short but beautiful path through nature from the main road that goes through Urubamba in the Sacred Valley of the Inkas. Diana, Matiyu, and their baby girl warmly welcomed me to a private cacao ceremony. I have experience with cacao and dancing, but not so much in a therapeutic session like this. I was really surprised by the depth of the wisdom that they shared with me in the ceremony, which fit exactly to what I needed in this moment. One of those things that really support me in my current process is about welcoming any feeling as a teacher - showing me where I am invited to heal myself. Taking care of myself as being my own parent, instead of looking outward for a solution or escape for the feelings that I find difficult to be with. They remembered me about the power and importance of sitting with my feelings, right when I needed it. We talked about much more and they created all the time and space to do so. They offered a lot of personal care and attention. I feel very grateful for that. Diana and Matiyu are very warm people. With Amaruanka they have created a beautiful space to facilitate healing, transformation and growth. I can highly recommend spending time with them. Muchos gracias!

Amaruanka is an amazing place to recharge and reconnect with the nature and yourself. Diana and Matiyu are wonderful healers that teach and guide gently, while holding an energetically nourishing space for one to be successful on their healing journey. I highly recommend Amaruanka!

Wauw, what a nourishing place Amaruanka has to offer. I love Diana and Mattieu, the facilitators. They have a broad range of healing skills and are professional in their interaction. The authenticity they offer is powerful. Diana provides amazing massages and massage courses. They brought me close to myself, from where I could heal deeply. I also love the couple/counseling work Diana and Mathieu offer together, and I am sure all their other offerings are great too. Last, but not least, the spaces they have for stay and for doing healing work are gorgeous. Truly sacred with a strong connection to nature in the sacred valley.
