About This Event

Panchakarma is the ultimate Ayurvedic healing experience. Running since 2015, the Amaveda Panchakarma retreat at Kichic hotel in Northern Peru is an Ayurveda-inspired, plant-powered, science-based and luxury-focussed full-body 7-day detox program. This ancient detoxification system brings homeostasis to the physical, mental and emotional body.

This programme was developed in 2014 specifically for foreigners coming to Peru to drink Ayahuasca. The programme was created for those willing to invest the extra time and money to really clean out the body before advancing towards working with Peruvian entheogenic plants. 

The programme has since taken on a life of its own and provides indisputable value with quantifiable benefits to ANYONE looking for a full body upgrade.

“I left the Amaveda retreat with glowing skin and a flat tummy, feeling more flexible and with a chilled nervous system. In other words, a complete reboot. What’s not to like?” –Caroline Phillips. Award-winning journalist, Tatler Spa Guide.


This JUNE we will be returning to KiChic to run our sixth week-long detox retreat in this magical location. The retreat includes Ayurvedic detox practices, a full digestive system re-set, therapeutic massage, organic spa treatments, curative food workshops, a dream-activation workshop and share circle, a 3-day liquid functional ingredient fast, Peruvian botanicals and superfoods, twice-daily yoga, meditation and mantra, sound healing and a wild Pacific beach and plenty of lounging poolside.


KiChic is one of the most stunning and luxurious beach destinations in Peru. The Amaveda Retreat will hold all rooms in the hotel bringing next level tranquillity and exclusivity. KiChic Hotel boasts a palatial jungle-style yoga studio, dozens of gorgeous shaded nooks to read, relax and nap in and some of the most refined and stylish rooms in South America.


All guests receive the Amaveda Detox Product Collection containing 100% natural products to be used throughout the retreat, and beyond. All products are handcrafted and formulated from the highest quality botanicals available. Many of the products teach invaluable self-care Ayurvedic daily self-care practices and beauty rituals that allow the detox week to live on, long after it’s over.


Included in the retreat are individual Ayurvedic beauty and detox treatments as well as therapeutic massage and aromatherapy. Pancha Karma heavily incorporates the use of therapeutic oils, both internally and externally. All body treatments are ramped up with the use of cold-pressed organic rare Amazonian fruit and nut oils for extra luxury and deep nourishment. All treatments are included in the retreat price.


Detox Yoga supports the process by working directly with the lymphatic system, increasing oxygen absorption and aligning the physical and mental processes of detox. Morning classes are more vigorous, encouraging blood flow and perspiration, while evening classes focus on restorative postures, meditation and deep nervous system healing. All levels are welcome and supported.


Consuming nothing but nutrient-dense function-food extracts, broths and tonics are one of the best ways to assist the body to break down fat reserves and encourage the body to detoxify. When the body is flooded with liquid nutrients, the digestive system can finally rest and redistribute excess energy for cellular rejuvenation and repair. The body needs to be correctly prepared for a liquid fast in order for the multiple benefits to be received. This program fully addresses this often-neglected fasting fundamental.


Our aim is a complete digestive system restoration. The food experience focuses on simple and cleans foods, carefully integrated with the profound benefits of raw juice fasting. All food is as fresh, locally grown and organic as humanly possible. Meals are a combination of tasty Ayurvedic and Macrobiotic dishes. We will explore the concept of Secondary Nutrition: eating with all our senses. In this detox, there is no starving or suffering involved.

Utilising raw ingredients from Peru draws from one of Earth’s most potent sources of natural healing botanicals, not to mention home to some of the most nutrient-dense food on earth. Many of Peru’s revered Amazonian botanicals and famous superfoods appear in the retreat products, treatments and of course diet: directly from the source.


During the retreat, we will have access to the fabulous open kitchen where I will be leading 2 ‘Curative Kitchen’ workshops. The post-detox period that follows is an incredible opportunity to continue to feed your body clean with healthy foods so it’s extremely beneficial to leave the retreat week with new healing food recipes, leaving fully armed and empowered.


Do you discard the messages that come through in your dreams as noise? Dreaming is a biological process which is designed to help us on our road to total wellbeing. Toxic behaviours and patterns can show up in our dreams and provide an opportunity for growth. Together we will explore how to boost dream recollection, lucid dreaming: waking up in your dream and the basics of dream interpretation.


You are in no way are you obliged to follow the protocol. Everything on offer is optional. The program has been designed as a VPK program, meaning it works for EVERYONE. The detox retreat is a living, breathing and very individual experience that will be monitored by me at every step of the way. Programmes can be tailored to complement and support any health goal or challenge, as well as any personal goal or objective.
