How It Works

1. Preparation

1 month of preparation support

1 month prior to the start of your journey, we will begin preparing individually and as a group. This includes group sessions, a full medical intake, one-on-one interviews, guided activities, and a preparation workbook. You will have an opportunity to get to know both the guides, coaches, and each other prior to the retreat.

 

2. Experience

From 4 to 23 days

Taking full advantage of an opportunity to disconnect from your day-to-day life, you will have a chance to let go of old ways of patterns while you immerse yourself into the culture, history, and mystical powers of Peru. Experience Peru’s sacred sites, culture, medicine, food, and the powerful teachings from master medicine carriers.

 

3. Integration

3 months of post-experience support

The most profound changes we experience rarely occur during our journey. Long-lasting change requires integrating and activating your new awarness into your day-to-day life. Our integration program includes group sessions and activities designed to bring your powerful experience back home to both your work and personal lives.

 

Is This Journey for Me?

This journey is for people who are seeking deep transformation. 

This journey is for people who are ready to ask the question, “Why am I here and what am I in service to?”

This journey is for people who are ready to let go of adaptation and begin living from a place of authenticity.

This journey is for poeple who are saying, “Even though I do it very well, this way of life is no longer working for me.”

This journey is for people who are ready to begin understanding the difference between one’s Self and one’s sense of self.

This journey is for people who having been racing around the track – and again again – and are ready to exit to a more powerful way of being.

Who This Journey Is Not For?

Quite frankly, this journey is not for everyone.

Depending on your unique process and constitution, working with sacred medicine experience can take you to heaven, hell, and everywhere in between.

This journey is not for people unwilling to look inward and take owenership of the way they show up in the world.

This journey is not for people who require luxury accomodations or 5-star dining.

This journey is not for people who regularly rely on recreational substances to function in their lives.

This journey is not for people unwilling to adapt to change and experience a new way of living.

This is deeply personal and transformative experience that could take you out of your physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual comfort zones.

Sacred Plant Medicines

Wachuma

The Moutain Program includes 3 wachuma ceremonies

Wachuma (commonly referred to as San Pedro in the West) is a shamanic medicine that some consider being one of the greatest of the plant teachers. It is derived from a cactus and comprised principally of mescaline – a psychedelic alkaloid that is also found in peyote). The effects of mescaline have been described as “empathogenic, (similar to MDMA) and potentially life-changing, promoting radical introspection, healing, and a sense of wonder and awe.” Often referred to as “Grandfather”, this sacred medicine is often slower and more gently than ayahuasca but incredibly powerful and able to connect you to Mother Nature and your heart.

Ayahusaca

The Jungle Program includes 3 ayahuasca ceremonies

Ayahuasca is another shamanic medicine that tends to be much more familiar in today’s psychedlic landscape and the zeitgeist at large. Combining two primary ingredients, the ayahuacua vine and the chacruna shrub, this potent tea is brewed for many hours to create one of the most powerful and visionary psychedelics on the planet. With its primary psychoactive ingredient being DMT, ayahuasca is thought to contain the God molecule, thereby giving its recipeints the ability to connect to a power greater than theselves. Ayahuasca is often a shorter but more intense experience offering journeyers the ability to look deeply within their psyche.

Why both? Which should I choose?

If you will endulge me for a few moments I want to share a bit of my personal journey with both of these medicines. In 2015, I was drawn to ayahuasca because of its perceived “power.” This played perfectly into the Western mindset that ‘more is better’ and the more powerful the trip the faster I would heal.

It took nearly 30+ ayahuasca journeys (some incredibly difficult) before I realized that for a recovering perfectionist and control freak like myself, it was actually the softer, gentler path that truly offered the deepest healing. Pounding away at my psyche with a psychedelic sledgehammer was not what I truly needed. Healing and gently opening my heart is the medicine doctor wachuma offers.

When I decided to create this experience I knew I wanted wachuma to be a deep part of this journey for two reasons. First, for anyone oriented as a ‘High D’, perfectionist, or control freak, ayahuasca can be a powerful experience but also incredibly challenging. Wachuma is a much gentler medicine that can help us soften some of our ancient protector and do the work we truly need to do. Second, at this stage in its popularity, ayahuasca is available to nearly anyone willing to look for it. To find to maestros who has been serving both for over 20 years is rare and it’s a pleasure to get to experience both.

In the end, it’s truly up to you. Follow your heart.

Accommodations

If you require luxury accommodations, this may not the journey for you.

Hotels

Each hotel on the Mountain Journey will be well-appointed with comfortable beds, cleans towels and sheets, private bathrooms, and hot water showers. These would likely be classified as 3-Star hotels.

The Mountain Journey includes 8 nights in hotels.

Family Hostels

In some of the more remote locations, we will stay in family-run hostels. These more rustic accomodations are comfortable but will include less amenities and often shared restrooms. Think summer camp for adults.

The Mountain Journey includes 1 night in a family hostel.

Camping

During our visit to Tinajani Canyon and Waqrupuka will we be camping. All camping gear, including insulated mattresses, tents, and sleeping bags, will be provided.

The Moutain Journey includes 3 nights of camping.

Eco Amazonia

The Eco Amazonia Lodge has 50 Bungalows designed and built from local materials to provide the comfort and safety you desire. Each room is furnished with a shower, sink, electricity, hot water, and a ceiling fan.

The Jungle Journey includes 6 nights at Eco Amazonia.

 

Preparations, Integration & Safety

When it comes to reaping the rewards of sacred medicine work and powerful transformative journeys, preparation and integration are just as important as the journey itself.

With this in mind, both the Mountain and Jungle Programs offer a full set of preparation and integration sessions along with tools designed for you to truly transform your experience into a life-changing journey.

Application

Each participant will complete a short application to provide general details about themselves , their experience, and their intentions.

Full Health Screening

Each participant must complete a full health questionnaire including both physical and mental health conditions. 

1:1 Discovery Interview

Each participant will meet with a coach for a 1:1 discovery interview to assist with health questions, preparation and intention setting.

Preparation Workbook

Particpants are encouraged to complete a preparation workbook that will assist in preparation and intention setting.

2x Preparation Calls

Three group zoom calls will be offered to begin creating the sacred container we will all enter upon arriving in Peru.

Integration Workbook

Post experience, an integration workbook will be provided to assist participants with integrating and activating their experience in their daily live.s 

3x Intregration Calls

Three group zoom calls will be offered to assist with reintegration and gracefully closing the container we all worked to create. 

Additional 1:1 Support

Each coach is available for additional 1:1 preparation,  integration, and coaching support following the journey. Fees may vary per program, package and coach. 

Itinerary

The following itineraries represent “best laid plans.”

These itineraries will be honored as closely as we can but part of this work is learning to be in the grateful flow. Occassionally, in developing countries like Peru, roads may be closed, hotels may be performing maintenance, and more time may be needed in one place or another to complete our work. Additionanly, when working at high elevations and with sacred medicine, some participants may have incredibly powerful processes that will require special attention and time. Slowing or pausing the journey for participants to acclimate may be required and should be expected.

Our number one goal is your safety. We will always do our best to care for each indivudal’s physical, psychological, and spiritual needs throughout the entire journey.

We ask that you stay open and flexible to what this magical country and journey can offer.

FAQs

Is Peru safe to visit?

Peru has had its issues in the past with protestors and government unrest. Today, barring any unforeseen conflicts, the country is very safe. Machu Picchu has been open for many months and no known issues would prevent safe travel throughout the country.

Can I attend and not sit with plant medicine?

Absolutely! This journey is divided into thirds. The first third is a cultural immersion and an opportunity to visit the sacred sites of Peru. The second third is coaching and community with the intention of living more inspiring and satisfying lives. The final third will be plant medicine and integration work.

Typical plant medicine ceremonies will last approximately six hours and will occur in the evening. Those not participating in ceremony will have free time to do as they please.

No discounts are offered for lack of participation.

How is dosing handled?

Dosing for each medicine is typically served in three cups throughout the course of each ceremony. Each participant will drink the first cup. After that, each participant will decide for themselves if they would like more medicine.
