Alternative medicine in the Andes

About This Event

Note this retreat is also available upon request for 3 or more people, except that the accommodation will be a bit different. Contact us for more details.

This retreat is ideal for people who love the outdoors, and who are interested in alternative medicines and spirituality. It is also recommended for those who just need a break from it all, a change of scenery.

Even seven days is enough to give you some time to breathe, to learn new skills, perhaps to re-evaluate your goals and dreams, and to finally listen to what your body and soul need.

This was one of the most profound experiences of my life. I truly felt I came into my greatest self.

Event Highlights

  • This retreat includes a San Pedro communion (and learning how to prepare San Pedro), yoga classes; meditation; a conscious breathing; hikes to a hidden waterfall and to the breathtaking Kinsa Cocha lakes; workshops on local medicinal plants and on how to make natural beauty products, and more.
  • Note: San Pedro is a cactus found in the Andes that has been used for spiritual connection for millennia.
