Come! Journey to mystical Peru, a land where the old ways are carved into the landscape and are embedded and alive in the heart of the local culture. Experience a synergistic blend of the shamanic customs of the Americas and the ancient art and science of Yoga.
Our voyage takes us approximately 15 km north (as far as the condor flies) from the historical Incan capital of Cusco, along the Vilcamayo River, revered as sacred by the early peoples for how it weaves its way through the rock, mirroring the correlation of Milky Way in old Grandfather Sky…
Nestled deep within the foothills of the Andes, our retreat is set in a warm cocoon of a region known as El Valle Sagrado de los Incas (The Sacred Valley of the Incas). Under the powerful protection of these majestic mountains, away from the tourist trail and thrill seekers, you’ll experience an intimate and powerful personal transformation as the real journey begins...
May the Heart of Earth Flow to the Heart of the Heavens Through my Heart And may our Hearts together Be the Heart of all sentient Beings May the Heart of Father Sky Flow to the Heart of Mother Earth Through the Heart And may our Hearts together Be the Heart of all Earthkind. ~ Mayan Prayer

Venue HighlightsGathering in safe and sacred ceremonies to receive the traditional Plant Teachers of indigenous Peru, we’ll use the insights gained and the heart opening that occurs to inspire and deepen our yogic practices. In turn, these practices enable us to more fully embody and integrate the master plant teachings, allowing us to continue working with them in ceremony whilst grounded in a clear, spacious, and centered state of being.
In compliment to the more traditional Plant Medicine ceremonies we will invoke and offer blessings with a Native South American ‘Despacho’ ceremony by a local guide and participate in a Native North American ‘Temazcal’ (a sweat lodge purification). The multicultural custom of “Council Circles” will also play a significant role during this 10-day retreat, prefacing and following all shamanic ceremonies, further assisting us with our blossoming and the integration of our practices.
You can participate on a guided waterfall hike that speaks to the Peruvian spiritual connections to the land and nature, star-gaze and share medicine songs and poetry by sacred fire pits. Enjoy floral baths that will serve to deepen our connection with ourselves, our fellow passengers, the land in which we will journey together and ultimately to Source.
