Iquitos and Urubamba in Peru
The Arkana retreat in the Sacred Valley is nestled in a beautiful location. The grounds themselves are tended to with love and care and this is more than reflected in the smiles and hearts of the staff that work there.
The rooms themselves are comfortable, clean and well maintained (at least our room was), it could sometimes be a bit tricky to navigate the stairs after a ceremony if you’re on the top floor but that was no biggy (!) (it did take me like 10 mins to walk up them one night but that’s because i spent a while stargazing(!)
The facilitators themselves couldnt be better. They genuinely care about you, fill you with love and help guide you on, or start your spiritual journey.
The staff really did make the retreat..
The ceremonies themselves are well managed and the energy is electric. if you’re on the fence about the toad ceremony – get off the fence and book it – easily the single most profound moment of my life and way more than i was expecting – the ceremony itself is held in a seperate area to the ayahuasca ceremonies and it’s very personal and intimate.
Those who have said it was disorganized – I don’t really agree with that but it is a bit casual/laid back with regards to organization of which personally like. I have enough regimentation in my western life!
I will hopefully be back to Arkana – and i look forward to finding out what their amazon retreat is like!
I love you guys, all of you x
