Explore the spirit of the Sacred Valley, Peru and discover your essence.
April 20 – May 3, 2024
You’ll be in ceremony from start to finish on this adventure. The magic of the Sacred Valley permeats all we do. Every interaction, every activity, every insight is part of the ceremony.
Meet local Shamans who will guide you and help you see from the wisdom of the ancient Andean cultures. There is something new every day for those who seek to learn and grow.
Go deep inside and make discoveries beyond your limited perception of yourself and the world. The sacred medicine of Peru will open your spirit to new possibilities.
Receive the support and guidance you need from our experienced facilitators and healers through group integration circles and individual integration sessions with your facilitators. Helping you in your growth is our number one priority.
Walk the Incan trails in the mountains of the Sacred Valley. Let your mind be at rest in the beauty and energy of this land, (sometimes enhanced by powerful medicines that will heighten your connection to the spirit world).
Discover the beauty of the Sacred Valley. Visit the city of Cusco and the town of Pisac in the Sacred Valley. Catch a fesitval or enjoy the restaurants and the cafes, or shop in the local shaman stores for unique and locally made items.
Learn about the Andean Cosmovision from a local scholar. Participate in ceremonies including a sound bath, temazcal and despacho. Visit with a local herbalist. Explore Machu Picchu, Vinicunca Rainbow Mountains, Moras salt mine or Moray archeological site as a day trip (site TBD). Enjoy yoga, breathwork, sound healing and other integrative activities. Visit the Pisac archeological site and Temple of the Moon in your free time.
At Inti Killa, our retreat center, you have the best of both worlds: peace and tranquility surrounded by the mountains and a short walk to explore the cafes, restaurants, colourful markets and boutique stores of Pisac. We offer comfortable semi-private rooms with single beds and a limited number of private queen rooms for an additional cost.
Your retreat includes two vegetarian meals per day made from locally grown produce. Salads, vegetable stews, quinoa and rice are some of the favorites, with accommodation for medicine diets and most dietary requirements. Fruit is available throughout the day.
Don’t miss out on the spiritual adventure of a lifetime in the Sacred Valley, Peru
Come, experience the medicine of Peru in a safe and sacred container in Pisac, the Sacred Valley. We offer Ayahuasca and Huachuma (San Pedro) ceremonies with local shamans so you can remember your essence and experience self-growth through the sacred practices of the Andean culture. Your guides, Elena, Angi and Jim set the container for the retreat and walk with you on this journey making sure you are safe and cared for.
The group experience is as much a part of the ceremony as the medicine journeys. You and your fellow participants are already on a path of healing and growth and the group is intentionally kept small. Together, we form a supportive community to hold and lift each other as we explore our connection to nature and ourselves. Integration is emphasized throughout with group shares after each medicine journey and one-on-one sessions for deeper work. Self-responsibility, mutual respect and healthy boundaries are the core values that guide our interaction with one another. Our group process will have you making new friends and lasting connections while you go deeper into yourself and the unknown.
Woven into the tapestry of deep plant medicine and integration work, there is a smorgasbord of activities for growth and discovery. A talk on the Andean Cosmovision from a local scholar, a healing temazcal (sweat lodge), an Andean plant workshop with a local herbalist, a trip to Machu Picchu, Vinicunca (Rainbow Mountains), Moras salt mine or Moray archeological site (TBD), morning yoga, reiki and somatic meditation, and shamanic and tantric healings. Visit the markets, sample organic juices, eat in local restaurants, enjoy bonding café chats and hike the local archeological sites. The mountains, the sunshine and the beautiful retreat centre provide the healing setting for this holistic retreat for self healing and expansion.
Set your intentions and begin the journey.

Angi’s passion is to help clients get rid of energetic blockages that stand in the way of their full human potential. She does her healing work through medicine guidance, emotional coaching, tantric sexual touch, and shamanic as well as energetic healings. She harnesses the wisdom of the medicines, the power of universal source energy, and sexual energy to access and activate the inner healer everyone has inside.
Her shamanic practice was strengthened with extensive medicine work in the Peruvian jungle and the Andes mountains over many years. Her intuitive healing practice includes tools like touch sessions, chakra cleansing and balancing, drum journeys, soul retrievals, cord cuttings and other techniques.
Jim has 48 years experience with medicine, personal growth and spiritual exploration. Today, he lives his calling as a full time, trained medicine coach and integration therapist. His intimate experience of the transcendent, the transpersonal and of deep connection to source allows him to guide people before, during and after their ceremonies, make sense of their experiences, and find meaningful ways to live in greater peace, love and equanimity. His formal training allows him to minimize risks of drug interactions, psychological impacts and medical concerns. He brings all of this and more to his role as retreat leader.
Jim is passionate about guiding people to deep healing, greater self awarenes and unconditional love.
Several years ago, as a multi-instrumentalist musician I dedicated myself to the path of service with Mother Ayahuasca. My prayer is of creating a bridge between the plant and people’s souls in order to go deeper into the infinite path of self-knowledge, leaving behind what prevents us from being happy and accepting ourselves as the beings of light that we are – without masks, fears or insecurities. In this way, we can be ourselves, creating internal and external peace and can live life with joy and inspiration.
We wait for you, so we can continue to grow and learn together.
My journey with Huachuma (San Pedro) and my connection with prayer began when I was 17 years old. That first time I experienced something I had been searching for a long time – a state that makes more sense, that feels more familiar, a perspective and a way to relate to life from an open heart. Following this call, I found my maestro and began my long training to hold the space for other people in ceremony.
I have been almost 20 years walking this path of ‘no way back’, as my elders told me. Every ceremony is like the first one, and it is the best for everyone once we remember that there is nothing more than the here and now. I hold ceremonies usually once a week here in my home at the Sacred valley of the Incas in Cusco.
Experience profound spiritual, emotional & physical healing through sacred plant medicine.
