The Great Initiation
PLANT MEDICINE RETREAT IN PERU
In October 2024 (Oct. 19th to Oct. 29th), join us on
a 10-day retreat to the Sacred Valley of Peru, where shamanic ceremonies, sacred plant teachers (Ayahuasca, San Pedro, Sananga, Cacao), shamanic breathwork, Andean Dream Yoga, and the medicine of the Andes Mountains will support you in remembering the deepest call of your soul.
"The retreat to Peru was beyond words. I can’t thank you enough for your guidance and support throughout this 10 day journey of ultimate healing. Angell with your focused experience and Miriam with your tender heart, together made an amazing team that made everyone’s nerves and the uncomfortable of the unknown dissipate. I highly recommend this to anyone in need of deep healing and to anyone who has the willingness to do the work. Together and in unison you can move mountains and create that shift that your life has been waiting for."
- Vicky S.
What is healing? And what is the call of our souls?
There is a world beyond what our eyes can see-- and a way of living that has been largely unavailable to most of us in the modern, western world. It is evident in our broken hearts, our sick bodies, our lost pathways and our aching communities and partnerships.
But there is another world, another way, another pathway home.
We have have forgotten, but there is a call for each of us. There is a call to deep healing, to re-forming bonds between human and land, to re-membering the lost parts of our selves. There is a call to the truth of our souls. And there is a call that we might share that truth with this beautiful, broken world and become healers-- healers of businesses, of families, of communities, of Pachamama, of our planet home.
Is this the call for you?
This is our call.
In October 2024, shamanic healers and medicine men Angell Deer & Daya Nima Das will lead 14 souls' journeys to the Sacred Valley of Peru to remember-- re-member themselves that they might re-member this world.
Using journeys with the sacred plant medicines of the Amazon and the Andes, alongside daily ceremony, sacred shamanic rituals, journeys to Incan ruins, traditional ancestral initiation in the Apu Ausangate, guided journeys to craftsman villages, and more, we will tap into the sacred culture and indigenous wisdom of the Peruvian Andes and their Earthkeepers.
Together, in sacred space with the Apus (mountain spirits), the star beings, Pachamama (Mother Earth) and one another, we will re-member who we truly are, opening up doorways to divine healing within each other and this planet we call home.
LODGING AT OUR PRIVATE RETREAT LODGE
The Sacred Valley is a region in the Andean Highlands of Peru and is located along the Urubamba River, which the local Quechua people call “the lover of the Milky Way Galaxy.” Located an hour from Cuzco, it is home to some of the most majestic and magical pre-Incan archeological sites and energetically powerful Apus (mountains) in all of Peru.
Our retreat will take place at an exceptional private lodge, a highly-rated guest ranch a 5-minute drive from the town of Pisac with its private garden, organic garden, private lodges, etc.
All of our work will take place on the property with Angell and Daya or in ceremonial spaces throughout the Sacred Valley. Our rooms are shared occupancy for 2 with a private bathroom. All rooms have attached bathrooms, and include breakfast and lunch or dinner every day with our private chef (depending on the ceremony schedule).
