During your 8-night/9-day all-inclusive retreat, you will experience a wide range of shamanic techniques to better understand the benefits of the medicinal San Pedro (Huachuma) and Ayahuasca plants and how they will heal your mind, body, and soul. The Andean Spiritual Healing Temple is located in the heart of the Sacred Valley of Peru, in the quiet and picturesque village of Yanahuara. Your surroundings will release your mind from the crowds, traffic, and noise of everyday life. In contrast, we invite you to find your inner peace and reunite with the energy of Pachamama Teqse Muyoq (Mother Earth, Mother Cosmos) to give you the opportunity for profound healing and spiritual transformation. You will have full access to certified yoga and meditation instructors, massage therapists, and a master chef who will prepare healthy vegan meals using fresh, locally sourced, organic ingredients while keeping in mind the special dieta required for consuming the plant medicines.

DAY 3: YANAHUARA, SACRED VALLEY – SAN PEDRO CEREMONY
Fasting is required in preparation for the San Pedro (Wachuma) ceremony, which will begin at 09:00 am. Before drinking the medicine, everyone will have the opportunity to meet with the spiritual master for a personal diagnostic reading. It is ideal and beneficial to experience the effects of San Pedro before experiencing Ayahuasca, as it will allow you to release certain emotional attachments. Mezcaline is the natural occurring alkaloid found in San Pedro, which puts your nervous system in a state of relaxation. Additionally, it helps to fight gastritis, works on healing your emotional issues, and puts you in an overall state of balance and harmony. Most people will vomit during this ceremony – not due to sickness, but rather liberation. When you vomit, you are freeing yourself from the heavy loads that you have in your life while simultaneously harmonizing your body, spirit and energy with nature. This ceremony will be led by the spiritual master and typically lasts 10-12 hours, depending on your emotional and physical conditions.
Included: San Pedro Ceremony / Dinner / Hotel
DAY 4: FREE REST DAY
After waking up, you will enjoy a special breakfast created to replenish and recover your body. You will have the entire day to relax however you wish. The suggested options are yoga and/or meditation with an on-site instructor, a professional full body massage, and self-reflection/journaling in nature. In the afternoon, you will meet with the spiritual master to reflect on your San Pedro ceremony in both a personal setting and a group interpretation.
Included: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner / Hotel
DAY 5: FIRST AYAHUASCA CEREMONY – INITIATION WITH THE MOTHER MEDICINE
In the morning, fasting is required in preparation for Ayahuasca, with the exception of fresh Papaya juice for breakfast and plenty of water throughout the day. You will have free time for yoga/meditation and massage in the morning. Option to arrange a group walk around the Yanahuara area.
In the afternoon, you will meet with the Andean Spiritual Healing staff and the spiritual master for energy unification, Coca leaf ceremony with personal interpretation and diagnosis, Andean cleansing and energy protection, and an introduction to the ceremony and benefits of Mother Ayahuasca.
At 19:00, you will begin the first ceremony and initiation of the Mother Ayahuasca medicine. The ceremony will last most of the night – you should expect to end your ceremony between 1-5am. Everyone will experience Mother Ayahuasca differently depending on your emotional and physical needs. The first drink is the initiation to the medicine and while some people may experience visions, others might not have visions but will experience physical healing instead. The medicine will work with each of you in a different way to provide what you need, not necessarily what you want. The Ayahuasca plant heals and purifies your soul, mind and heart while being conscious at all times. After the effects of the medicine, you’re encouraged to sleep.
Meals: None (Fasting mandatory)
DAY 6: FREE REST DAY
After the first Ayahuasca ceremony, you can expect to wake up feeling very hungry from fasting the entire day prior. Our master chef will prepare a delicious breakfast early in the morning.
