The inclusive nature of philosophy of the Inca religion
Etnikas is owned and operated by a Peruvian family with a long family history in shamanic traditions. We are an interfaith center with more than 30 years’ experience in shamanic religious Inca healing and guiding ayahuasca ceremonies based in Cusco, Peru. The Peruvian ministry of health has recognized the authenticity and responsibility of our practice. Our team comes from all over Peru with shaman from the Andes (Qero), the Amazon (Shipibo) and medical staff and assistants coming from all over Peru.
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.
We believe that our way of symbolizing, celebrating and honoring the Spirit embraces all people and transcends all cultural boundaries. As such we welcome people of all faiths and religions, scientists and doctors, atheists and agnostic’s, to our retreat at Etnikas.
The name Etnikas come from the word Ethnic. This refers to the diversity of the ethnic groups in Peru who’s Knowledge and customs we incorporate in our practice. The name Etnikas also highlights the diversity of our guests who come to our clinic from all walks of life from around the world. The essence of our practice works on a universal law which is equally significant and applicable to all ethnicity.
The benefits of living a life in harmony with an underlying sense of happiness are becoming more and more recognized by mainstream science. The extensive benefits of the synchronization of mind, body and spirit are now encouraged and celebrated across a wide range of platforms. We are on a path to work in synergy with science bringing conventional medicine together with ancestral Inca healing techniques with a view to having science explain our techniques in the future. We believe science and religion are not opposites, but can be integrated. That the study and exploration of the infinite dimension of consciousness, and the mind – body states, can be part of a new spiritual and religious impetus, embracing science and technology, and becoming a unifying force.
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. Engaging in healthy acts is the psychological basis for happiness. Modern day neuroscience has confirmed that engaging in kind acts improves ones hormonal, psychological, emotional, and physiological well being. In many cases it has been observed to prolong duration of life, generating vital force through which mental and physical healing is obtained.
“The person who undertakes acts of kindness with SINCERITY receive 100% of the benefits to ones health and well being.
– People who do not undertake these acts with sincerity receive only a tiny portion.
Our philosophy is a notion supported by modern physic with string theory noting a solid vibratory field moved by a universal energy. We understand the reality, that we are deeply connected with the universe and mother nature, and this is used as our guiding force. We consider it a mistake to think our physical existence is the sum total of reality, neglecting the spiritual realm and considering it imaginary. We believe that in entering into connection with the spirit, one enters into a connection with love. As the Spirit is Love.
We are involve in some social responsibility projects for less advantage people and communities.

Ethnic & cultural sustainability
Etnikas Integrative Medicine was founded to provide a source of protection for Peruvian shaman and their ethnic communities. In the past traditional healers and their communities throughout Peru suffered discrimination and exploitation. There has been a lack of incorporation of ethnic cultural sensitivities as a result of the Spanish colonization which can clearly be seen in the history of the colonization of South America.
Today Etnikas is proud to be part of the movement in bringing ancient Peruvian culture back to a position of pride within its own culture and to be able to utilize the ancient healing knowledge in a way that can contribute to the broader global community. The results that the techniques are yielding are attracting attention and support from pragmatic people from all around the world.
We now work with more than 50 shamans from the Andes and the Amazon. Our masters are paid fairly (the same as a doctor earns in Peru) giving them and their trade the respect they deserve as well as opportunity for their families and communities. When you choose Etnikas you are not only healing yourself but helping to heal a community and culture.
