About This Event
Amaruanka invites you and your partner for a beautiful healing experience, where you will have the opportunity to take your relationship to a higher level of complicity and connection.
LEARN NEW WAYS TO EXPRESS YOUR LOVE
Love is an energy present in all of us. The thing is, we don't necessarily know how to love, in a way that our partner will feel totally heard and seen. This can be enhanced by conscious communication.
Communication is more than being able to express ourselves: it's about the quality of our presence, in every moment. Presence with what we feel, presence with what our partner feels.
This practice is enhanced by Sacred Cacao. We serve premium ceremonial cacao from Quillabamba, which opens the heart, calms the mind, brings clarity, and strengthens the connection with your partner.
A PRIVATE RETREAT TO MAKE YOUR RELATIONSHIP SACRED
The foundation of our teaching is a unique system that we created called "The 4 Pyramids of Sacred Relationships." From the journey of the serpent to the expansion of the eagle, you will be guided through four inspiring steps that help you enhance the relationship with yourself, and share the new you, with your partner. You will learn fundamental qualities of how to raise your vibration, treat your partner as a King or Queen, be authentic, and no longer repress emotions.
Many of us carry deep emotional wounds and traumatic memories; it is time to embrace this, and truly love all that is. When we become conscious, we can be of great service to ourselves, and to our loved ones. Looking forward to support you as a couple on your journey of Sacred Relationships.

Highlights from my experience: ceremonial flower baths, cacau ceremony and a 1-1 therapy with Diana. I am very grateful for this place and the kindhearted people who run it! The location is peaceful in nature and a place I always feel incredibly safe. Diana and Matiyu hold space beautifully in a very gentle way. You can feel that they put their hearts into their work and really care about what they do. Not only that but I could also feel how much experience they have in working with holding space for others to heal. I would recommend Amaruanka to anyone who visits Urubamba. This is a place where deep healing takes place and where you'are welcome to come as you are. Thank you!

I attended a floral bath and cacao ceremony in November and absolutely loved it ❤. Amaruanka is a peaceful spot surrounded by nothing but nature. Diana is an Earth Mama and from the start she made me feel welcomed and her calm energy was really lovely to be around. I loved it so much that in December I attended a Women’s workshop. I will keep heading to Amaruanka as long as I am in the Sacred Valley. I highly recommend the healing centre to anyone wanting to calm the mind, relax and recharge. Thanks guys Susan ???????????? x

I found Amaruanka through a recommendation of a friend, who told me about Diana’s womb healing sessions. I messaged Diana and immediately felt the calling to go and see her and receive one of her healing sessions. Amaruanka is a beautiful oasis of quiet and piece that is often hard to find especially when you’re traveling. Diana and her partner are lovely and very welcoming making you feel comfortable and cared after immediately. Diana has a beautiful kind and gentle presence and you can feel that she deeply cares about the people she’s working with. She’s very authentic and her treatment was both deep, relaxing and nurturing at the same time. She made me realize that healing yourself doesn’t have to be super intense and challenging all the time but can also be done with a lot of love and compassion. She has a lot of wisdom to share, I highly recommend to go and see her and stay at Amaruanka if you can!

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!

Amaruanka is an amazing place to recharge and reconnect with the nature and yourself. Diana and Matiyu are wonderful healers that teach and guide gently, while holding an energetically nourishing space for one to be successful on their healing journey. I highly recommend Amaruanka!

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.
