Sapan Inka is a Retreat Center with more than twelve years of experience integrating Ayahuasca traditional use and Psychospiritual Therapy. We are developing an Ayahuasca Therapy for people who is looking for spiritual health, mental clarity, emotional balance and inner development.

We organize Ayahuasca Retreats in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Cusco, Peru. It is our commitment to offer a healing and safe space in our house for everyone who might be interested to participate in this type of retreat.

In these retreats you will be able to participare in ayahuasca ceremonies and San Pedro ceremonies. We use only ancestral medicinal plants. No other substances.

We include in our Retreats the use of Pandora Star Light, this device emits flashing beams of light focused on the retina, stimulating different regions of the brain. People who are exposed to light with their eyelids closed may experience images of kaleidoscopic patterns, of mandalic and psychedelic type, which may allow deep introspection, similar to a state of deep meditation. To participate in this session with the Light helps the body to produce its own DMT by simulation of the pineal gland. So, a session with the Light helps to be more prepared for the Ayahuasca experience and the journey to the psychic reality.

To participate in an Ayahuasca Retreat is a possibility to explore your spiritual dimension, to reconnect with the healing power of you own body and spirit, and to connect with wisdom of higher Self.

If you are interested to know more about these Ayahuasca Retreats and, maybe, to be part of the retreat,  contact us and it is our pleasure to share with you

Unlike most of the reviewers above, I did not have such a great time at Sapan Inka. It felt very dry and austere to me, completely different from the amazing, beautiful and juicy ceremonies that I am used to at other centers.

Erik and Nilda do not stay with the retreatants during the whole ceremony, but go to bed after about two hours, leaving people to deal with their trip for the remainder. This to me is not the way to run a safe ayahuasca ceremony.

My first ceremony involved quite a lot of shaking and bodily release, which is normal for me in the first ceremony of a retreat where by the body is releasing tension, and every shaman I have worked with has told me this a a normal and natural part of the process. Erik’s interpretation the next day was that this was ayahuasca’s way of telling me that my “lifestyle” had not yet caught up to insights from previous retreats, and he tried to talk me out of participating the second night.

The second night went fine, but I still had my reservations with the way they run their ceremonies. When I shared these the next morning instead of engaging with it, they just ordered a car for me and told me to leave.

It was weird being kicked out of an ayahuasca retreat, but on the other hand I was happy to leave. Did another aya ceremony at Sacred Valley Tribe and a San Pedro ceremony at Hummingbird, which were both beautiful and amazing and which I likely would have missed out on if I hadn’t been kicked out. So in the end it worked out for the best for me.

Hello Oege
Thank you very much for leaving your review about your experience in our Retreat Center. We believe your point of view about our work is interesting and rewarding, since it is the first time that a participant shows disagreement with our therapeutic system and with the way how we guide the retreats. We think that this experience is an indication that we still have a lot of work to do and that we should not cease our efforts to improve. The Sapan Inka Retreat Center has been organizing retreats for more than 10 years and there are more than a thousand participants who have attended our retreats, and it has been always our main interest the psychic and spiritual health of all the participants. Over the years we have developed a therapeutic model that integrates ancestral Amazonian / Andean wisdom and psychotherapy. And it is a top priority for us to make the participants feel safe in our home and that everyone can benefit from the therapeutic process.
We are sorry if we were not able to provide you with the help you expected during your stay in our home, during the ceremonies and during our integration talks. We are sorry for not doing a job according to your expectations and your personal quest. It is true that it was our decision to ask you to leave the retreat and to refund some of your money, and we do not regret it, since we considered it to be the most healthy decisión for both sides. We are responsible for our decisions. And we honestly hope that everything goes very well on your personal development path.
