The below itinerary has been designed to give you the most balanced and powerful combination of inner exploration, connection to the sacred sites & ancient ways of the Andes, communion with the sacred Plant Teacher Ayahuasca, deeply transformative Breathwork journeys as well as time to rest & integrate. We will also include some time for shopping the local markets filled with crafts and textiles. This is a journey of a lifetime during which we will all be learning, healing and expanding together while creating sacred pathways into the heart of the ancient wisdoms. Note: While Yoga is not specifically integrated into this itinerary, there will be plenty of opportunity and sacred space for us to engage in this important practice. This trip is limited to 10 persons.


In the morning, we will meet in Cusco and together enjoy a scenic drive to the Sacred Valley, stopping at the archaeological site of Moray and the Salt Flats of Maras. We will then arrive at our retreat center nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees. There, we will have lunch and enjoy a beautiful afternoon on the grounds and in the gardens. In the evening we will gather in our beautiful medicine lodge for sacred sharing and orientation.


In the morning before breakfast there will be time & space for yoga, meditation, prayer or swimming at one’s own discretion or organized as a group. Then after breakfast, we will be led in a profound nature-immersed experience of ancestral sound healing and harmonization by a local maestro and expert in Andean mystical musicology. We will return Sach’a Munay for lunch served in our own private dining area. In the afternoon, we will have time to rest and do personal inner work in preparation for our first medicine ceremony led by Susan Bookman.


After being all night in the powerful presence of Madre Ayahuasca, we will have the time to sleep. Then, after an early lunch, we will visit a nearby, impressive special museum that depicts the ritual heritage of the primary pre-Colombian cultures of Peru. From there we will visit the Sanctuario de Senor de Huanca, a famous pilgrimage site at the foot of Apu Pachatusan where special blessings and miracles are sought. In the evening we will meet in sacred space for sharing, rituals and/or teachings.


In the morning we will visit the outstanding archeological site and artisan market of Pisaq followed by a box lunch on the terraces with views of exceptional beauty. We then will have time to explore the town’s artisan market and shops before returning back to Sacha’s Munay to rest and prepare for our second medicine journey led by Alan Waugh.


On this morning, again, we will have time for restorative sleep in preparation for the healing and integrative breathwork that we shall be engaged in on this day. “Clarity Breathwork” (formerly known as Rebirthing) is a powerful process of healing and transformation that activates the subconscious mind and opens the energy channels in the body allowing what we have been holding onto to surface and be released. This may be suppressed emotional material, physical blocks in the body, old beliefs structures and memories, fight/flight/freeze patterns, and addictions. It is a powerful tool for addressing issues around relationships (with self, other and God), traumas (birth, childhood, others), and spiritual development or ascension. In the afternoon of this 5th day of our trip, Alan and Susan, both who are trained Clarity Breathwork practitioners, will guide you through a breathwork process which may include prayer, movement, guided meditation, sharing and other processes. After dinner, we will reconvene for a group talent show (participation optional of course).


On this day, we will continue with the breathwork in the morning but also have time to enjoy the grounds and gardens of our private sanctuary. In the afternoon we have some flexibility and may choose between visiting an animal sanctuary, a weaver community or going for a hike. In the evening we will be joined by a local medicine man and prayerful ceremonialist for a fire and rape ceremony.


In the morning we will fast in preparation for a sweat lodge ceremony also led by our local medicine man from the night before. Then, after a hearty lunch and a late check-out of our retreat center, we will travel to the beautiful town of Urubamba where we will have to time to explore the Plaza de Armas and the markets before checking into our charming accommodations where we will remain for two nights as we explore this part of the Sacred Valley. In the evening we will reconvene in sacred circle for integration, sharing and/or teachings.


After an early breakfast we will visit the fabulous archeological site and town of Ollantaytambo where will not only have an engaging tour of the site, but will have lunch there and time to explore and shop for medicine items or souvenirs. After a rest and delicious meal back at our hotel, we will then reconvene in sacred circle for sharing, ritual and/or teachings.


As this will be our last morning in the Sacred Valley, we will be visiting the enigmatic Templo de Naupha for sound ritual offering in gratitude to the ancestors and guardians of this place and region. From there, we will take an alternate scenic route back to Cusco where, after checking in to our beautiful hotel, we will have the afternoon free to rest and explore before meeting later for a traditional dinner.
