Shamanic Healing Retreats: Bolivian Andes & Amazon. Intensive 3 Day Retreat in the Sacha Runa Community
- Sacha Runa Allkamari Retreat Center, Boutique Eco-Resort & Spa
- La Paz, Bolivia
- We have endeavored to preserve honorably the Sacred teachings we have received from some of the best and most courageous teachers of their generation in North American Shamanism, Andean Shamanism, Amazonian Shamanism, Tibetan Dzogchen and Sikh Devotional Meditation. All of these teachings we have received from masters who took the step to break the narrow confines of secrecy and a particular ethnic or religious group and chose to share with all who come with a pure heart and true longing to surrender, connect and serve with Love, Devotion, Surrender, Humility and Respect and Compassion. They have taught us to connect to Source and allow the blessings of the light to flow. At some point in our work we have had Direct Experience with the Condor and Eagle Prophecy and the Divine Presence, which since then has guided and accompanied our work in all the ceremonies from the various traditions.We respect and welcome all nationalities and backgrounds and provide a safe space to share, to surrender and become vulnerable, to free ourselves and to rise in Divine Love.
ScheduleEarly morning meditation.
Imbibing shamanic dietary concoction (depends)
half day hike
dinner (Or night time ayahuasca ceremony)

I've been coming to Sacha Runa on and off for some years and I have to say Sacha Runa its the safest and more authentic medicine center I could find in all of Bolivia. Years ago I had the chance to take the 'Shamanic Intensive Training' with Miguel and it was a really positive life changing experience for me.
Venue HighlightsBoutique Eco Resort “Allkamari” is ideal fora retreat.. Its location near the city of La Paz, the exceptional beauty of its landscape, exquisite design of its infrastructure, the tranquility and silence of its surroundings and the powerful energies of the land make any occasion a special one.
Our buildings are finely designed and elaborated using local materials, with the goal of making them comfortable, elegant and fitting for a wonderful visit.
One of the basic concepts behind our structures is energy efficiency and conservation. The buildings made of clay in the La’kauta fashion passively store solar power, which in turn is used to heat our rooms and spaces at night.
The Palca Canyon, "el Valle de Las Ánimas" and the Laguna de Las Ánimas, are considered natural monuments by the department of La Paz and therefore there is an effort to protect their geological formations, flora, and fauna.
Boutique Eco Resort “Allkamari” is an experience you won’t want to miss. The beauty, magic and mysticism of our place will ensure you have a peaceful, comfortable and life transforming stay.

My first time with any plant medicines, i must say, its an experience you must try in your quest to get to know yourself more. Shaman Miguel was so loving and caring, the experience couldn't have been more pleasant, comfortable, and safe. its prob to me the most important aspect of it, feeling safe so you can really be in the moment and explore yourself. Miguel is full of knowledge and love. I can not wait for him to come back to Miami again!

My family and myself were part of a San Pedro ceremony under Miguel's guidance and it was a beautiful experience. Miguel's chants and prayers make you feel protected, guided and peaceful. Looking forward to next ceremony and forever grateful to Miguel and to rest of the atendees. Gracias!

I experienced the San Pedro ceremony under Miguel's guidance. Prior to the ceremony we were given just the right amount of educational material in the form of videos and voice recordings from Miguel to prepare our consciousness for the ceremony. I was nervous going into the ceremony because I had never tried anything remotely similar, and many in our group felt the same way. With Miguel's presence and his guidance however I felt confident to take the leap and I am so glad I did. The experience was eye-opening and one that I will never forget. Will most definitely want to do it again.

Miguel is a maestro with decades of experience behind and you can immediately notice that in the ceremonies. Very thankful for the ceremony shared and all the work that has been done. Besides, Hotel Allkamari is a perfect retreat close to La Paz surrounded by an amazing natural landscape with espectacular views, very close to Valle de las Ánimas. Hope to have the opportunity again to be back in La Paz to repeat the experience.

Sacha Runa is a special community led by Miguel Kavlin. On many occasions my husband and I participated in events at Allkamari, a ceremonial space and beautiful boutique hotel located in a valley near La Paz with a spectacular view of the mountain Illimani and surrounding valleys. All experiences with Miguel have been exceptional, healing and life changing -- marking a before and after. He is highly skilled and brings wisdom from his decades of training with great masters from diverse lineages including Andean shamanism, North American Native American traditions, Tibetan Buddism and Sikhism. You will not be disappointed.

I attended 2 Ceremonies with Miguel as a facilitator. In my first ceremony he held a great positive energy and made sure I have a good first time experience with the medicine. After having one ceremony under my belt, I had a good idea of how my second ceremony would go in term of the effect of the medicine and how Miguel would hold a good positive space. I came out of both ceremonies with big changes which in turn have a great effect in my ongoing life. One thing to keep in mind is that there is no magic shortcut, the ceremony is a good tool but I still have to put in the work in my everyday life by maintaining certain practice like meditation for example. Overall I would recommend anyone to sit in a ceremony with Miguel. Price is very reasonable as well.

I had the pleasure of going through a plant medicine ceremony with Miguel. His demeanour and aura immediately set not only me, but the rest of the participants at ease. He guided us through 5 hours of the ceremony, singing the Icaros for hours without stopping. He consecrated a direct experience with the divine. I had a direct conversation with passed over loved ones. I left the ceremony with healed emotional wounds and having no fears. I am forever grateful to Miguel and the ceremony

The Wizard Mountain Jungle Lodge, located in a beautiful patch of dense forest in the Bolivian Amazon, proved the perfect setting for my first real ayahuasca retreat, and I couldn't be more happy to have begun here. The retreat itself comprises a few large, and key, huts - a dormitory, bathroom, the kitchen and eating area, and that of the ritual - each of which perfectly served the natural simplicity and beauty of the position and its surrounds. And whether at night or during the day, one could always feel or sense the proximity of a range of beautiful and exotic creatures and flora, with all their strange scents and sounds - something that no doubt contributed to the 'authenticity' of the ayahuasca experience that was to come. One thing about the way in which Phillip, a warm and personable Chilean, prepared us for the ceremony that I liked was the quiet walk, complete with guided tour of the various plants and animals along the way, that ended with a very tranquil meditation amid the steps of a soft, trickling waterfall somewhere deep in the jungle. The ceremony: At no time did I feel unsafe during the ceremony. I felt as if I was in very capable hands and could therefore relax and give myself over to the experience of the ayahuasca. And now, after having undergone several ceremonies, I can say that Phillip definitely did a very good job of leading our group through the various stages of the journey. One thing that was particular to Phillip's ceremonies, too, that I also liked was the variety of instruments, sounds and icaros (songs) he put to use, each of which brought on and carried us all to new sensations and revelations. Overall it was a very beautiful and healing introduction to ayahuasca for me, one that I would recommend to anyone. As well, I would also recommend hanging around a bit longer at the retreat afterwards if you can - walking around through the forest, swimming in the river or hiking up the mountain felt great in the days that followed (much better than going straight back to reality). Thanks Phillip and everyone for everything and I hope to see you again someday! Andy (Australia)

J'ai pu contoyer Philip pendant quelques mois dans la jungle où se trouve l'eco hotel Wisard Montain. Durant les plusieurs cérémonies où Philip m'a emmené, j'ai pu observer la force intérieur du chaman qui l'habite ainsi que la puissance de ses Ikaros. L'expérience vécut était unique pour moi, entrer sans crainte dans le temple de Philip, c'est un Chaman sérieux qui offre de belles guérisons avec l'aide du puissant esprit du serpent!!! En plus des guérisons des cérémonies, je reste enchanté par le cadre et par la beauté du chant de Philip! Je conseille vivement cette expérience à ceux qui se sentent appelé par l'esprit de la liane... Périco

It is really hard to describe the experience with Phillip in words, but I can answer a few questions that everyone has before choosing a Shaman and Healing Center. On the first meeting in town at his little office, Phillip's energy immediately reaches out to you and makes you feel comfortable and at ease. His knowledge and instruction is very clear and he'll answer any questions you might have. Going from the hot, sweaty town to the healing center 10 minutes by boat up the river is a welcoming change and you are greeted by lovely trees, a swimming hole and we were fortunate enough to meet two really amazing people who were volunteering there. It is a beautiful jungle setting created for beautiful healing. Hanging out and listening to the sounds of the Jungle calms one down and helps you prepare for the ceremonies to come. As the time for the ceremony arrives, one is greeted by a nervousness and unsurity of what is going to happen. This is where a good Shaman is very important. Instructions on the ceremony is given and a little bit of his style, using buddhist, shipobo, native north american and Mayan traditions, is explained and one is made to feel at ease and ready for the ceremony. The ceremony starts, it is pitch dark and the powerful voice cuts through the darkness chanting a buddhist mantra. From here Phillip leads one through the ceremony with grace and great power! Chanting Icaros, singing songs and doing some personal one on one healing is all part of the well put together ceremony. Phillip is talented, humble, kind, compassionate and his knowledge of working with the mother of plants becomes evident in his ceremonies. We feel very blessed and happy to have found ourselves in his loving care. I hope this helps anyone interested and looking for healing at the hands of Mother Ayahuasca, the jungle and a truly excellent Shaman! Thanks again Phillip for an amazing, healing experience!!!

Phillip! Your ceremonies are such a beautiful fusion of cultures. You create a space of trust and love wish allowed me to surrender. No wonder you are surrounded by many butterflies. I look forward to sit with you again and deepen my journey of the heart.

Mi experience de 3 semanas de retiro chamanico con Felipe, Wara y Wayra fue realmente extraordinaria. Los dos sitios de la selva y de Allmakiri estan grandiosos para hacer el trabajo con las plantas maestras, y la peregrinacion en la isla del Sol... indescriptible de belleza. En la selva, mama Ayahuasca aceptanos en su casa. Todas la vibraciones de la medicina, y de los seres de la selva permiten una armonizacion despacio y profunda de nuestras vibraciones. El proceso del retiro me dio mas respuestas que creia llegar sobre mi vida spiritual y interior. Cada ceremonia se desarrollaba en total seguridad fisica y mental con nos chamanes que acompanaron nosotros. Ellos adaptaban el contexto con nuestras capacidades de recepcion y de comprehension. Sus corazones abiertos que se expresen en los maravillosos cantos nos guiaban en los planos sutiles con una cuerda de seguridad. No es posible de faltar la peregrinacion en la isla del sol, este sagrado sitio con el abuelito San Pedro, que abre nuestra conciencia a proposito de la magnificiencia de la pachamama que podemos sentir en todo nuestro cuerpo. La ceremonia final de la baila con el San Pedro y que termina con el temazcal en el sitio de Allkamari, es el mas grandioso momento del retiro, con un real renacimiento al mundo que habiamos preparado durante todo el retiro. Terminé el retiro, regenerada, como una otra persona, me sentio mas cerca de lo que soy, mas cerca de mi ser real, con una nueva vision del mundo. Los otros hermanos de nuestro circulo y los chamanes han participado por mucho a todo el proceso, y redescubrimos los lazos invisibles pero tanto fuerte que nos unen. Solo puedo anadir gracias a las personas que participaban a este cambio, a esta iniciacion, que quiero profundizar mas... el trabajo nunca esta terminado!!!! Allaya! Caroline C.

The first glance betrays not his secret. He seems quite mundane. Of course, what sort of veil withstands the jungle? Just some beads leer from his neck, indiscernible in their affiliation; Hindu or Christian? Surely, one must wait for nightfall to see the shaman. It is then when the Mother of the Vines will claim his body and knowledge. He has done enough to be worthy of possession by the master plants: his training at the hands of the Shipibo and the North American natives collides perfectly with his esoterical knowledge of the secular christian and Vaishnava faiths. His seemingly brownian interests collapse at night into the most cohesive Ayahuasca ceremonies I have attended. His signature is the comnbination of hindu mantras and shipibo icaros, deeply trance-like vocal intonations that direct the ceremony at his will, or, better said, at the need of the ritual. He has the utmost respect for what he does, feeling himself a vessel, and this sacrality towards the ritual extends to everyday life, in which I myself have been inspired. What is not a ritual, anyway? Even cooking pizzas seem to be part of the divine play (btw, they were delicious!). Under his care, 30-day diets of rice and raw bananas are a healing processes that all undertake with his direction as inspiration. I have nothing to say of this man that meeting him could not reveal, but I hope that my sincere recommendation for this new breed of international shaman, finding in Phillip one of the most genuine embodiments, goes out to at least one that may be seeking his wisdom.

This is the place that has witnessed my deepest transformations - the shedding of my heaviest veils. Its structure is ideal for staying one day, a week, or a moth (which I've done twice now, during the Shamanic Retreat of january/february 2014 & 2015). Within its limits the strangest society is formed, an ipso-facto family of deep seekers, great masters, yogic enthusiasts, lecturers, retreat groups, tourists keen on the beautiful surrounding landscape and passers-by that maybe come with their families for a mid-day culinary moment. However, each group has their special place, and Allkamari's design knows how importantly space and motive are intertwined. The Kiva - a north-american native temple, built on the blessing of Beautiful Painted Arrow - is the place where ceremonies are confined, leaving both the healing and the enjoying (although sometimes they may collide within ceremonies!) their ground of being. Its resort infrastructure is well above most hotels in La Paz, leaving not only tourists, but tired pilgrims of the plants also, deeply thankful of its services. The crew working for your full satisfaction is quite friendly, having built on Allkamari not only a career, but a kind of family. From the cooks to the shamans, everyone has your well-being at heart, so that the food is also healthy and natural, flowing effortlessly in the energy stream that Allkamari musters to call its own, possibly being the perfect prism for the soul of the Valle de las Ánimas.
