An intensive Ayahuasca healing retreat, a life changing experience

At Etnikas we use a variety of shamanic techniques. Our methods involve the use of philosophy of the Inca religion, priests and shamans from different parts of Peru. With over 30 years experience studying and serving Inca ceremonies with Ayahuasca, we have found a method that focuses on bringing about strong spiritual, mental and physical change, allowing you to begin a new life.  We work in a compassionate and loving environment in which healing and personal growth are prioritized.

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.

Social responsibility with Human Actions ONG: During your retreat you will perform some social responsibility. It is through our families shared experiences that we have learned the first steps to opening the healing doors of ones mind, body and spirit is through the act of GIVING. Doing kind acts with love and sincerity make us more healthy. We are involve in some social responsibility projects for less advantage people and communities
