7 Day Ayahuasca Retreat in the Sacred Valley of Peru
It is our belief that this work is life-changing for the committed attendee. The healing properties and effects of Ayahuasca combined with healing practices & education are second to none. Kali Wasi prides itself on hosting intimate groups (2-6 guests per retreat) so that each participant can receive the one-on-one attention that this great internal work deserves - both from our healers and the Spirits of the medicines during ceremonies, and the retreat at large.
This retreat consists of three Ayahuasca ceremonies, one Optional Huachuma (San Pedro) ceremony, Rapé ceremony, Cacao ceremony, multiple classes including yoga, qigong, Yoga Nidra, meditation & more. One-on-one Healings, Reiki, Esalen massage, acupuncture & bodywork. Group healing and sound healing, as well as Spa packages. All in the beautiful landscape of the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Our Ayahuasca ceremonies are led by master teachers of the Sacred Plant in multiple traditions, all of whom have multiple decades of experience, and some were even born into the tradition. We hold our shamans in the highest of regards, as they create a sacred and safe space for our participants to do their inner work. We feel proud to work only with shamans of high quality and experience, and with the biggest of hearts..
Please inquire on availability if you have a preference for the shaman of your retreat ~ details & shaman descriptions available on the Kali Wasi page.

Welcome ceremony - Intentions setting, Crystal ceremony & Gifted crystal
Free time for: Getting settled, getting to know one another, walking or generally relaxing into your home for the week
On our first day, we will arrive at our retreat center in time for a light medicine-friendly lunch. Our home center is located in the beautiful town of Taray, right in the midst of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The sacred mountain Apu Linli stands tall over our home, along with other beautiful mountains and green pastures that surround us.
During our Welcome Ceremony, we will initiate a few items & practices that will accompany us throughout our journey:
Gifted crystal - On this day, we will gift you a crystal, which you will be charging throughout the retreat in the different ceremonies. This crystal will then be charged with all the energy from the magical area of Sacred Valley, as well as with all the lessons from your journey, for you to take home.
Our intention - During this ceremony we will share our healing intention, which we will individually track & further develop throughout the week. *During the days prior to the retreat, please take time and space to meditate on that which you would like to heal, as well as your purpose or intention in joining the retreat. This type of meditation will allow you to better prepare yourself to receive the gifts that the medicine and all other events will have in store for your healing.
After taking some time to settle in & meditate on our intentions, we will regroup for our first Ayahuasca ceremony. Our ceremonies are led by shamans . We work only with shamans of the highest vibration, with extremely loving energy & decades of experience in the healing arts as a whole.
FREE TIME: 1:1 Healings, Massages, Spa, visiting town or Rest
On our second day we start with a Yoga Nidra class, where we will journey to a sleep-like state to activate different parts of our energy body for deeper relaxation & integration of our medicine ceremony.
During our second day we will focus on resting, receiving healings and meditating on the previous night's journey. You will have free time to: receive one of your included private sessions, such as Reiki, Esalen massage, Spa treatment, Private counseling or any additional service requested. You may also visit the town of Pisac, which has a beautiful traditional market along with other shopping and restaurants. Those of you who have your complimentary 1:1 healing scheduled during this time - please dress comfortably and come ready to receive nurturing, relaxation and further insight into your journey. For more info on the 1:1 healings, see here.
In the evening, we will offer you a Rapé ceremony. Rapé is sacred tobacco powder from the Amazonian jungle that is blown into the nostrils with a special pipe or Tepi. The benefits of this medicine include: clearing the mind, clearing energetic blocks or entities, grounding, chakra alignment, and Third eye decalcification amongst others. This medicine can enhance your overall well-being and immune system, as well as help you move any remaining emotions that have come up from the previous night's medicine work.
FREE TIME: 1:1 Healings, Massages, Spa or Resting
We will start our third day with a nourishing Restorative Yoga class with Sunny, which will surely help clear the mind and reconnect with our bodies in a gentle loving way. Then for most of the day, we will have free time to rest, get healings, acupuncture, massages or hike.
On this day, we focus our energy on our intentions, what we’ve learned so far and what we’d like help with during the evening's ceremony. We will then reconvene for our second ceremony with the Mother Vine, asking her for continued guidance and deeper healing. At the ceremony's closing we will share some customary fruit before retiring to our rooms for some well-deserved sleep.
FREE TIME: 1:1 Healings, Massages, Acupuncture, Spa, visiting town or Rest
Sound Healing / Group Integration
After breakfast on our fourth day, we will come together for a replenishing walk by the Urubamba river, communing with this nurturing and healing body of water, receiving the healing energy of the neighboring Pisac Ruins.
In the afternoon we will have some free time to receive healings, massages or Spa sessions.
Then after dinner we will come together for a replenishing Sound Healing, using crystal bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, chakra chimes, drums and other healing instruments. Sound baths can be a very effective way to allow the body to relax, restore and be nurtured, all whilst aligning our chakra system and clearing our energy body. It can also be of help for anyone who is still feeling the medicine at this point, as it can be quite grounding as well.
FREE TIME: 1:1 Healings, Massages, Spa, visiting town or Rest
After breakfast on our fifth day, we will come together once more for some nourishing Yoga Nidra. Then for most of the day, we will have free time to rest, get healings, massages or hike. On this day, we focus our energy on our intentions, what we’ve learned so far from Mother Aya, and what we’d like help with during our final evening ceremony.
Travel to Kinsa Cocha
In the morning of Day 6, we will travel to Kinsa Cocha to experience the magical energy of these sacred lakes. At 4000m in altitude, this remote region is a beautiful sacred land where we can make an offering to Pachamama (Mother Earth) and thank her for our journey. We will walk around the main lake, and at certain sacred spots we will come together for a short integration ceremony or circle. The healing energy of Kinsa Cocha and the surrounding Apus (sacred mountains) will help us receive any final messages for our journey, along with sharing her beautiful loving energy with us as a reward for all the hard work..
After our visit, we will have some free time for any final healings, massages or Spa sessions. Then in the early evening we will regroup for a Cacao ceremony!
Cacao tea is a sacred and ancient brew, with heart opening properties (our recipe has been handed down from the Mexican Mayan tradition). This ceremony will greatly help balance our emotions and energy, as well as rejoice in the hard work completed & the progress achieved so far. Cacao is also a heart-opening medicine, and thus will help us open up to receive the next day's medicine.
Final Crystal charging & Farewell group circle
Ride to Cusco for those who leave
After breakfast, we will have a short farewell ceremony where we will come together in gratitude, to share final insights from our journey. Here we will also perform a Magic Crystal ceremony where we will finalize the charging and activation of our gifted crystals, so that you can then carry the energy of the full journey wherever you go..
