About us

Take a pilgrimage of a life time where you will experience the most powerful sacred sites, temples, portals and archaeological secrets that South America has to offer.

Be guided by local Andean Pacos, also known as medicine men or shamans, who work with unconditional love and divine masculine energy.

Experience the profound yet gentle heart opening of the Grandfather medicine, Wachuma (also known as San Pedro), where the veils between the worlds will disappear.

Wachuma has been used for more than 3,000 years in Peru, and is a medicine of the heart that connects us deeply to ourselves, each other and pachamama, removing the ego and giving us the direct experience of no separation, and a deeply profound heart opening that will assist in seeing through veils of illusion.

Jaime will be guiding you through a deep transformational journey of your inner wilderness, while the Pacos will guide us through the mountains, offering teachings on the Andean way of life and cosmology.

“There is a great longing within each of us. We long to discover the secrets and mysteries of our individual lives, to find our unique way of belonging to this world, to recover the never-before- seen treasure we were born to bring to our communities. To carry this treasure to others is half of our spiritual longing.  The other half is to experience our oneness with the universe, with all of creation.”

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

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.
