An intense Ayahuasca healing retreat, a life changing experience
When making an extreme life change, authenticity is invaluable. The healers we work with come from families with traditions of shamanism. The Shipibo shaman we work with are specialists in ayahuasca using centuries-old traditions and techniques. The Q’ero priests, are the direct descendant of the Incas. They bring a variety of talents, performing cleansing ceremonies as well as offerings to the mother earth (or Pachamama). Peru has a long standing tradition of priest and shaman healers. It’s because of this reason modern medicine came into the culture later on and has continued to be mixed with natural healing techniques.
Using modern medicine in our retreats ensures your safety. Etnikas has a multi-disciplinary health team consisting of a cardiologist, psychiatrist, psychologist, general practitioner, Emergency nurse who complement the highly experienced native Andean and Amazonian shaman. A doctor is on site 24 hours a day during retreats and a nurse in the ayahuasca ceremony with access to a full range of state of the art emergency medical equipment. We take time and care in reviewing all medical information before your visit to our retreat center. Our retreat is the only center to have been recognized by the Peruvian Ministry of Health for its method in performing safe Ayahuasca ceremonies.
Located in the Sacred Valley, two hours drive from Machupicchu, your trip here will be filled with stunning views from within the Andes mountain range. Our center is in Taray, a quiet rural community, perfect for meditation, yoga or simply relaxing. Here you will have a break from technology, buzz of the cities and time to reflect, stargaze and be awed by the nature surrounding you.
Focusing on social benefit: Etnikas has become a destination for those wishing to make great strides in changing their lives with every ayahuasca ceremony. Our aim is to create that awareness, to connect and share through taking actions that benefit the community. To create a chain with spiritual, mental, physical, social, environmental and sustainable healing. To be an Integrative Healing Clinic with a focus on social work efforts.
