Huachuma (San Pedro) Retreat

Alongside the already unique panorama of shamanic retreats and rituals with plant teachers we offer, we shall soon host San Pedro retreats (4 San Pedro ceremonies & 1 Ayahuasca ritual – or else, 5 San Pedro ceremonies each week), which may be taken on its own, or combined with our Ayahuasca retreats, or the shamanic pre-diet with plant teachers. Learn more about our Huachuma journeys and the San Pedro here.

Ceremonies with the San Pedro will now be included as a standard in the traditional long shamanic apprenticeship (3 months onwards) and it will be possible to diet with it as well. The legendary San Pedro cactus (Trichocereus pachanoi), known also as Huachuma, is – together with Ayahuasca and Toè (Brugmansia suaveolens) – the third most sacred visionary teacher plant in Peru. The Sachamama (Mother Spirit of the Jungle, or Mother Spirit of the Earth) and Yacumama (Mother Spirit of the Waters) rituals will complement – alongside with the Merayas‘ Magical Fire ritual, the Medicines’ Smoke ritual, the Tobacco ritual and a special Meraya ritual of Spiritual Purification – our San Pedro journeys.
