Hi, this is going out to people in the ayahuasca community who may be interested in this upcoming workshop at Willka T’ika in the Urubamba Valley of Peru. It is a beautiful retreat center located in the Sacred Valley within a day’s travel of Machu Picchu, Pisac and other Inca sites. The retreat will include three ceremonies facilitated by Wayra, a young Quechua ayahuasquero who is well respected in the community. I will be providing ‘entertainment’ on the off-days, making some presentations on the usual topics.
Please join us if you can! This year is the 100th anniversary of the ‘discovery’ of Machu PIcchu by Hiram Bingham. Rumor has it that the site may be close indefinitely while they figure out how to keep it from being destroyed by too many tourists. So this year may be the last chance to see this amazing site for a while.
Please pass this along to friends who may be interested, and respond directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Dennis, I was hoping you might give me the scoop or some advice regarding visiting retreats in Peru. I would like to participate I’m a traditional ayhauasca ceremony. It seems that iquitos is the place where many centers are located. I have looked into 3 places. El mundo magico, el morpho, and spirit quest. I don’t really know what to look fo and would appreciate any direction you could give me. Thanks
There’s lots of tourist ayahuasca scenes in Iquitos, and getting to an authentic one is sometimes a challenge. Of those that you mention, I’ve heard the best reports about Spirit Quest. I know Howard Lawler and I think he’s trying to do it right. I have also heard good things about El Mundo magic but have no personal experience. Blue Morpho is quite commercial, definitely a tourist thing and I wouldn’t recommend it.
Hope this helps.
Hola Dennis, my husband, Tom, and I are planning our first trip to Peru this year and want to attend a 2 or 3-week authentic ayahuasca healing retreat. We’ve seen several on the Internet but would like your recommendation for the best in Peru. We’ve been looking at the Ayahuadca Foundation site but see several others. Who, in your opinion, is the best in Peru for ayahuasca?
Hi Jackie and Tom
Well I don’t know if your schedule works, but the event at Willka T’ika that I’m participating in June 3-10th is going to be pretty special, I think. And not just because I will be there!
If that doesn’t work for you, see my comment below. I would recommend Howard Lawler’s Spirit Quest. See my comment below.
I always was interested in this subject further inert am, value it for putting up.
I am currently in Cusco and am headed to Willka Tika today actually, to attend a retreat and ceremonies with Wayra. I was just wondering whether you could please give me prices etc for the June conference. I am interested in returning then.
