Venue Highlights

We are located in the Sacred Valley with a 360 view of the Andes mountains surrounding the center. A two hour hike up the mountain leads visitors to an ancient Inca site. The Urubamba river runs through the valley and in front of the retreat, there is ample nature and eucalyptus trees around. For those interested, a short walk from the center are mineral pools for a hot day. Our location is a marvelous place to sit back and enjoy nature while disconnecting from the busy lives we often lead and reconnect into ourselves.

Day 4: Breakfast - Conversation - Return to Airport or City Center by (12 PM)

Day 1: All participants must arrive in Cusco, Peru. We transport everyone to the centre from our designated location, shared upon registration. It is important this day that a light lunch is your last meal, following the diet. We will have an introduction to the retreat this night.

Day 2: This will be the first ayahuasca ceremony day. During the retreats we practice a vow of noble silence. This is important during the retreat to help meditation and introspection. We are taking ayahuasca to go to the depths of ourselves and it is important to be conscientious of our process and the processes of those around us. All will have a consultation with the shaman this day before the ayahuasca ceremony. After the private conversations, there is a Holotropic breath work meditation lasting two hours. Then some time for rest before the ayahuasca ceremony which can last from 4-6 hours.

All of our ceremonies are guided by the shaman or shamans with Icaros and special instruments.

Day 3: We begin the day, after breakfast, with a conversation translating your experience to the shaman. From this they may analyze and guide you in where you should focus your intention for the next ceremony. Following lunch, there is a temazcal or Mayan sweat lodge, here we continue to detox your physical body. In the morning and afternoon there will be some time to meditate and absorb the wondrous surroundings until the ceremony. Ceremony will last until the late evening.

We always recommend to bring any type of journal, drawing books or spirituality/meditation oriented books which encourage healing.

Day 4: We begin this day with ease, a filling clean breakfast and starting the conversation with the shaman. There will be time to ask any questions you may have. At 12:00 PM we will arrive to the city.

During the retreat we follow a strict diet to accommodate the plant medicines and healing of mind, body and soul. There is very little salt, sugar, no spices, no caffeine, no chocolate, nothing artificial and smaller portions. Breakfasts are with fresh fruits and a grain such as quinoa or oatmeal. Lunches are a mixture of vegetables, roots, quinoa or rice and some light legumes. The diet is balanced to give enough protein, fiber and most of all energy to our participants while they are working with master plants.


Accommodations are shared. There is the option for private rooms and rooms for couples or people traveling together. We separate the rooms between male and female. There are hot showers and shared bathrooms. Outside we have various hammocks, garden space for yoga and meditation. The dining room is always open to enjoy tea and relax. Ceremony space is available during the day as well.


We have a driver picking up participants from a designated location in Cusco. When booking is confirmed we send out further directions on how to get to the meeting place from Cusco airport or the main Plaza de Armas. Pick up is at 5PM the day the retreat starts and the journey to the center is an hour, sometimes more if there is traffic in Cusco.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

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.
