Two Day Ceremonial Cacao Retreat

Event Highlights

  • We are surrounded by eucalyptus trees, sacred mountains, and the sound of running water. Working with the elements of nature, helps to remind us of nature within. With our ally, the cacao plant, you begin to connect and open your creative channels and remember the truth of who you are, and what you came to do here on Earth.


We begin with a warm welcome to the garden, and introduction. We ask that you eat lightly before arriving.

Each ceremony is unique and is guided by our intuition.

We begin with a cleansing ritual.

We guide you on a sacred cacao journey with an uplifting meditation and music.

Qi-gong and a movement practice is included to help connect with earth and sky, and allow energy to flow in the body.

There are self-love guidance teachings throughout the ceremony to help inspire your spirit.

You will have the opportunity to express yourself and what you choose to transform in your life.

Space will be given for creative expression.

We will close the ceremony with a gratitude offering.

Please let us know if you would like us to prepare a vegan/gluten free dinner for you

About This Event

Enjoy a heart-opening experience in nature, in a lushious private garden where we will serve you Premium Ceremonial Cacao. This sacred plant invokes creativity, emotional clarity and liberation, heart connection, and helps you center so you can create a life you love.

Amaruanka provides a confidential, and safe space for you to express yourself authentically. We explore self-love, qi-gong practice, balance of masculine and feminine energy within, and ritual practices to learn how to love your emotions.

We have both been establishing an intimate relationship with this plant, learning on our personal journey to self-love, and are passionate to share this with you. 

Prices vary depending on if you stay for only the cacao ceremony (3hrs), or over-night with meals.

We offer cacao ceremonies and retreats for individuals, couples, and small groups.

The retreat with Amaruanka was a revealing experience that helped me heal and restore my inner vision. — Tatiana, Russia

Venue Highlights

As 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.


You 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.


We prepare vegan and gluten free meals that are colourful, full of high vibration so you become what you eat.
We align our meals with the intention of sacred living and gratitude.
You will not only be pleased visually, but feel balanced in your body to create an amazing day ahead.


If you find your way to Urubamba Terminal, we can meet you or give exact directions by motorcar.

      Grateful for very supportive Cacao ceremony

    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!

      Wonderful facilitators, Amazing location

    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.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
