Opening the Doors to the Self – A Mystical Huachuma Journey

We host an intimate bespoke entheogen retreat annually on the Winter season at our family-owned sanctuary located in the heart of the Sacred Valley, Peru. This mystical experience offers you deep insights into the Self and the Universe, giving you a greater sense of connection and spirituality fostering compassion and gratitude with the elements of Mother Nature.

Huachuma also known as San Pedro, The Grandfather or Trichocereus Pachanoi is an ancient entheogen cactus and it is one of the most sacred and wise consciousness from the Andes (2,000–3,000m above sea level). Inviting it into your life to work with is a big deal, even when taking smaller doses. The effects of Huachuma can be profound, and this practice can positively affect your entire life.  By connecting more deeply with yourself, you become more aware of spaces within that need healing, how you relate to and communicate with self and others, thoughts, patterns, behaviour, and so much more. Huachuma is a Heart Expansion entheogen medicine.
 

"This was the retreat I needed in every way! It was an incredible enriching experience personally but also fascinating to be immersed in such a spiritual place and culture and to be held so gently and lovingly in the container that was this family style experience. There was lots of outdoor hikes and amazing sacred sites the campfire every night was incredible the hospitality food and support unbeatable and the people and insights found and shared simply magical." - Susan

  • Winter season
    July 19th - 29th

There are 3-steps into our mystical experience:

  • Preparation. Here we explore reasons and desires for working with Huachuma. What do you want to learn, heal or change? On our preparation e-mail and call, we may craft this into a clear "intention" or "prayer".
     

  • Ceremony. This is when the Huachuma is ingested in ceremony during the retreat facilitated by Suraya and her Huachumero parents. 
     

  • Integration. This is where the "real work" begins. As you make sense of the experience, and perhaps how it relates to your intention(s) or prayer(s), you can draw from this insight and start to make changes in your life for the better. You'll have 3-months of integration e-mail and call support.

"This mystical experience has provided me with key information for healing in my life, after years working with therapy I still had something missing and the ceremonies and sound healing were instrumental to me. This retreat is carefully and lovingly put together to support each and everyone's journey and the ripples of joy and love are felt profoundly. The integration portion post retreat has been fundamental to arrange the learnings into a real life setting and continue healings. I have profound gratitude for Suraya and her family's guidance, space and sharing." - Brenda

"To find that there is an intelligence in the plants, is it in the plants, in the chemical, or is it in me, or is it in the transpersonal world? But to find that when you wake up from this and come back to consensus reality, that there was something wise that came to you that you can actually take back and integrate and do something with, that was remarkable to say, I didn't know I had that wisdom 'cause it's really, everything is within yourself. I mean, ultimately, we don't know that for sure, but there's consciousness beyond ourselves, but ultimately whatever comes... I didn't know I had that wisdom. Where did that come from? But it's really in our work." - Dr Alexander Shester
