The Sapan Inka Retreat Center offers an opportunity to participate in Ayahuasca retreats in the Sacred Valley. There are 6 available spaces on every retreat. The retreats are organized in our retreat house which is located in a small town outside the city, at the base of a sacred mountain called Pitusiray.
At Sapan Inka Retreat Center it is possible to live a therapeutic, healing and transpersonal experience, a journey of exploration throughout the spiritual world of ayahuasca. Experiencing a deep healing process, cleansing and purification. The ayahuasca ceremony is ritual influenced by ancestral wisdom of the peoples of the Amazon, but at the same time, it is an elaborated therapeutic methodology which is based on Psychedelic Psychotherapy.
Thanks to many years of experience developing a methodology to allow us the integration of the traditional use of ayahuasca medicine and a psychological method to explore expanded states of consciousness, we have understood that an Ayahuasca Retreat cannot be a very long process, including many ceremonies. Experience working with ayahuasca has taught us that a retreat should include no more than three Ayahuasca sessions, and that retreat participants should not be more than six.
By organizing Ayahuasca Retreats we have discovered that the most important in the therapy is to do a job with a high ethical and professional standard. Therefore, our education and training in the art of giving Ayahuasca medicine is a committed and permanent process. And our goal is to make all participants feel confident, and to give a safe setting.
Machu Picchu is an extraordinary place, beautiful and majestic. The Inka city built on the top of a mountain, a beautiful masterpiece of architecture and engineering. Machu Picchu is a sacred sanctuary full of mystery and hidden wisdom. The extraordinary architectural work done on the stone is a source of perplexity, amazement and admiration, its temples and enclosures are built in such a way that its structures are in complete harmony with the mountain and nature. The historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu is considered a World Heritage Site. In this retreat you will have the opportunity to visit Machu Picchu and you can directly experience the magic of this mysterious place. Our retreat includes 2 sessions of Ayahuasca in Sapan Inka retreat house, and a San Pedro ceremony that includes the assistance of an Andean priest who will offer an ancestral ceremony of offering to Mother Earth, during the experience with San Pedro we will walk to a place at the shore of a river, near a beautiful waterfall. After all the ceremonies you can visit Machu Picchu.
This Ayahuasca Retreat includes 2 ayahuasca sessions and one San Pedro ceremony. It is a 5 days Retreat and it includes a Pachamama (Mother Earth) offering ceremony, which is guided by an Andean priest (Pampamisayoq). This ritual is part of the experience with San Pedro medicine, corresponds to the initial part of the process with San Pedro medicine.
From our perspective, the San Pedro ceremony is a complementary process after the sessions with Ayahuasca. The San Pedro allows working aspects that it is not possible to work with ayahuasca medicine, in addition, the state of consciousness facilitated by San Pedro helps us to understand the experience with ayahuasca and, in a certain sense, helps us crystallize the learning obtained by the ayahuasca experience.
The Ayahuasca Retreats are psychospiritual therapies with the objective to support people for the resolution to emotional and bio-energetic blocks. It is also our intention to support to the participants during a possible acces to holotropic states, i.e. states "moving toward wholeness."
The Ayahuasca therapy objective is to get that the personality becomes a totality, and for the achievement of this goal it is required the self-knowledge, which will allow to the contents from the unconsciousness to be integrated into the total personality of the Self, this process is a process of "integration".
An Ayahuasca Retreat is a psycho-spiritual therapeutic process with the purpose to help to the participants to reconnect with the healing capacity of the own organism, and to help to connect with the higher Spiritual Self.
In the Ayahuasca Retreat, you participate in two or three ayahuasca sessions, where it is possible to experience a deep process of introspection, accessing to expanded states of consciousness. It is an inner journey that puts us in contact with unknown areas of the mind and with the depths of our Self.
Our Ayahuasca ceremony is an integration between the traditional medicine of the Amazon jungle and a Psycho-spiritual Therapy methodology. It means that the ceremony includes some elements coming from ancestral wisdom and some elements from humanistic, existential and transpersonal psychotherapy.
The Ayahuasca ceremony is the most important aspect of Ayahuasca Therapy. Ayahuasca Retreats are a kind of short therapy where the main objective is to live a healing and transformative experience which allows us to connect with the self-regulating capacity of our own organism, and opens a door to our inner world and to the spiritual dimension.
In an Ayahuasca ceremony it is possible to live very deep experiences of purification, of psycho-emotional unblocking, and it is also possible to live transpersonal experiences or psychedelic peak experiences. It is a process of exploration of the internal psychic reality, a journey of exploration into the world of Ayahuasca.
At the Sapan Inka Retreat Center we have had the opportunity to welcome many people from all over the world. Many of you come to us after making long journeys, motivated by your desire and interest to live an experience with ayahuasca medicine, although not all arrive with the same type of motivation. Our deepest intention is to do everything possible, so that the people who come to us can live a full experience during the ayahuasca retreats, in that sense, we do everything possible to give you information, so that you can have an adequate preparation from weeks before the ayahuasca retreat, and during your stay in our house, we provide everything you need to get the most of your healing experience.
However, we consider that the most important phase of the ayahuasca healing process corresponds to what we call the post-diet, that is, the period including the days after the ayahuasca sessions. During the days or weeks after the ayahuasca retreat, people have the possibility to assimilate and integrate their experiences, although, the truth is that lot of people do not know exactly how to do it. Therefore, it is a very important part of our work as a therapist, to be able to advise and help people, so that they can properly integrate their experiences into their daily lives.
Experience has shown us that the Ayahuasca Retreat cannot concentrate many people at the same time, if our intention is to provide psychological and spiritual assistance to every participant. For that reason, the maximum capacity of participants in our ayahuasca retreats is six people. Thus, it is possible to talk deeply with each participant during all the retreat, it means that from the first moment you arrive to our house, we will have a private conversation with you with the intention to know a little bit more about you and to know how to help in the process, to know what your motivations and intentions are, and so, to be able to give you the more convenient support, directed and specially adapted to your needs. The conversations are private.
The Sapan Inka Ayahuasca Retreat Center is located in the Sacred Valley, Calca, Cusco, Peru. The house where we organize our retreats is a very special place surrounded by beautiful sacred mountains, a native village of farmers, a natural landscape, peace and pure air.
We consider as a part of our responsibility, preservation of traditional knowledge of our ancestral culture, and also to give to the participants in the ayahuasca retreats an opportunity to know more about our ancestral system of healing.
We use teacher plants (Ayahuasca and San Pedro) based on the ancestral amazon and Andean knowledge. To cook the medicine it is used just two plants: Ayahuasca vine (Banisteriopsis caapi) and Chacruna leaves (Psychotria viridis). We don’t use any other plant for the brew.
We are the Sapan Inka Retreat Center team and we are over thirteen years of experience in the direction of Ayahuasca Retreats with Sapan Inka. Before that, we were more than 5 consecutive years receiving training from Shipibo healers, living and learning with them.
We are a married couple engaged in therapeutic work with teacher plants. Our responsibility is to support and guide all participants of the ayahuasca retreats during the process of energetic cleaning, and emotional and psychological release. We have extensive experience leading therapeutic ayahuasca ceremonies, working with Ayahuasca and San Pedro.
