- Sacre Valley, Cusco, Perú
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.

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.
