Sacre Valley, Cusco, Perú
I found Sapan Inka retreat online and decided to try it out for my for my first ayuyhuasca retreat while traveling in Peru… heard rumors saying retreats near a Cusco were a scam but felt a connection with Erik and Nilda through their emails and knew this was the one… and must say had zero regret they exceeded my expectations. They limit the number of participants to 5 but in our case there were only 3 and it was great we bonded and were able to share our experiences in a super safe environment. As explained in their website they only offer 2 ayu ceremonies per retreat because they believe it’s enough.. it’s not about the money or quantity but the quality of the experience and the ability to guide each participant in an intimate space.
The first ceremony was quite intense for me and every time I felt afraid or lost I could feel their presence surrounding and guiding me… if they could they would have walked the path for me but I knew I had to do it alone… it was like having the mother and father along the journey it was rough and beautiful at the same time highly recommend anyone in Cusco to find time because it’s was a unique experience.
House, food, transfer, nature was all amazing and had all my needs met. Will definitely revisit next time I’m in Peru.
Hard part is leaving and continue the path and lessons alone but I know if I ever need help they are always available a click away.
