One day Ceremonial Cacao Retreat

About us

Enjoy a heart-opening experience in nature, in a lushious private garden where we will serve you ceremonial Peruvian 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 and growing on our personal journeys to self-love, and are passionate to share this with you. 

Prices vary depending on if you stay for only the cacao ceremony (2-3hours), or over-night with meals.

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

We can accommodate individuals and couples.

Life is a ceremony!

Why Retreat?

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

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
