Calca, Cusco, Perú
This was my and my partner’s first experience of ayahuasca, so we had done a lot of research about it and were extremely wary about finding the right place. The experience at the retreat that Erik and Nilda create was perfect. This seems to stem from the fact that they themselves are genuinely caring, thoughtful people who care passionately about helping others and sharing their own learnings. I am usually scared to give up control, but Erik and Nilda helped to create the perfect environment, allowing me to trust them completely, to enable me to have an experience that was truly life-changing, humbling and mind-opening. That would not have been possible if I had had any doubts. I will be forever grateful to them for creating the circumstances to allow me to have breakthroughs in insight about my life and the world/universe. Gaining self-knowledge and self-healing are processes that are utterly accelerated by this retreat – I actually would never have believed what turned out to be possible before experiencing this. Not only were the ceremonies carried out perfectly (although I cannot compare to others), talking to both Erik and Nilda before and after, during the daytimes was amazing. These were some of the most enjoyable as well as valuable and interesting conversations I’ve ever had. On the physical level, the living conditions were very clean and comfortable, all the details had been thought out (details do make a difference to allow us to feel comfortable and safe). Nilda’s home-cooked food was very healthy, local, seasonal and delicious. It was also wonderful to visit Macchu Picchu together as a group, and have great guides to chat with there. I could not imagine a better retreat really. I recommend Sapan Inka extremely highly. I feel like I have not only made incredible progress for myself and those near me, I have also made deep connections and relationships that I will always be grateful for. I do believe that the world is being made significantly better due to Sapan Inka.
