A Return to Pachamama

About us


Join us for an 8-day true body-mind-Spirit adventure in the heart of the Sacred Valley in Peru, and discover the mystery and healing power of the ancient Andean plant medicine, San Pedro.

During this retreat we will quiet down the mind and nourish our bodies with a daily Yoga sadhana (asana + meditation), as well as a variety of self-transformative practices. We will nurture the Spirit with two all-day San Pedro ceremonies learning from this local sacred plant, used for thousands of years for healing purposes. We will also participate in a variety of healing rituals and offerings, all with the intention of releasing energetic blockages while reconnecting to our truest Self.

Your stay includes opportunities for mountain hikes, waterfall visits, and trips to sacred sites, exploring the beautiful remnants of the Inca empire and finding refuge in Pachamama.


We will be staying at the beautiful, cosy, and modern Ubuntu Ayni, a Plant Medicine retreat center, tucked away in the Sacred Valley of the Incas at the base of the majestic Pitusiray mountain. A wonderfully talented private chef will take care of our daily vegetarian diet, using only the best local produce and nourishing wholefoods.

The accommodation is available as either double share or in a dorm which sleeps five guests. All rooms are en suite, have wifi connection, with high quality beds and linen.

San Pedro (also known as Wachuma) is a cactus that has been used as a sacred plant medicine for at least 3,000 years in the Andes of Peru. It is a medicine that can be used to help us perceive our self-created barriers and limitations, and greatly aids us in opening and connecting with our hearts.

Each ceremony is a reunion with ourselves, Mother Nature and the Divine. It is a medicinal mirror that can help us see where we hold onto self-limiting beliefs and patterns in our lives, gently guiding us toward releasing that which no longer serves us.

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:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

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.
