When one experiences truth, the madness of finding fault with others disappears. ― S.N. Goenka
Venue HighlightsSpirit Plant Journeys is located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, a safe haven from the noise of the city and the dangers of the jungle.
The family-run farm and lodge where we are blessed to hold our retreats is a labor of love, closely tied to the local community, and has an organic garden that supplies much of the food that end up on our dinner plates.
The lodge is nestled between two mountain ranges, with stunning views of the Valley and nearby Apus, the guardian mountain spirits that look down upon the land. There are numerous hiking trails and hidden spots around the property, which provide a perfect refuge for moments of quiet seclusion and contemplation. A river flows through the land at the entrance of the property, and the walk over this river into the lodge, beneath a tree-lined canopy, feels like a mystic entrance into a hidden paradise.
AccommodationsWe offer different room types depending on budget.
Each room includes fresh towels, hot water bottles every night, and regular housekeeping. Though we strive to be as environmentally-friendly as possible, made easier by the year-round sunshine, we can provide electric heating if desired. All of the rooms have stunning views of the valley and mountains. Natural light pours through the windows onto the woodboard floors every morning, giving each room a cozy, warm glow to wake up to. The lodge itself has a rustic, authentic feeling, while still offering modern amenities.
We offer private and shared rooms, with either shared or private en-suite bathrooms. These rooms include either large twin beds, queen bed or double beds, depending on room selection.
For those traveling on a budget, we offer offer economy-rooms. Our economy rooms all have large twin beds, windows with views over the Sacred Valley, hot water, wood board floors, beautiful wooden balconies and shared showers/bathrooms downstairs.

Menu/CuisineEvery meal that goes on our table is not only perfectly in line with a traditional Ayahuasca Diet, but also reflects the love and care we put into every aspect of our retreat. We use lots of vegetables and fresh herbs from the organic gardens on-site, and can accommodate a wide variety of dietary needs, allergies and restrictions, including Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, and Vegan diets. Though we strictly follow the guidelines of a traditional Ayahuasca Diet, we strive to integrate traditional Peruvian flavors into our meals. The meals serve not only as a cleansing, rejuvenating companion to your ayahuasca experience, but also as a flavorful connection you to the tastes and colors of the local culture. One of the retreat highlights is our "Pachamanca", a delightful outdoor luncheon in which potatoes and herbs are baked in an underground oven, and served in the round with herbs, guacamole and lots of delicious "aji", or herb-sauce.
DirectionsThe nearest airport to our retreat center is Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport, located in the city of Cusco, Peru.
Cuzco is a 1:15 hour flight away from Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima, the starting point in Peru for every international flight entering the country. We recommend that guests stay a night in Cuzco the day they arrive in order to rest and acclimate to the altitude in Cuzco. On the first day of our retreat we will meet guests at a central meeting point near the Plaza de Armas, in the City Center of Cuzco.
A 15 minute cab ride from the Airport will get you to the City Center, and should not cost you more than 20 soles ($7).
We will provide detailed instructions beforehand on how to get to the meeting point. Upon picking up the group at the meeting point, we will embark on a stunning hour and a half long journey through the mountains to our retreat center. We will also provide transport back to Cuzco on the day that the retreat ends.
