- 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.

I think I had a fairly atypical experience here. I approach plant medicine from a purely chemical perspective, and am interested in how the medicine can treat ptsd and depression. I’m not at all interested in the spiritual or ritualistic elements of the ceremony. But as a first timer, I didn’t want to be in a clinic setting. This was actually a great fit, as the group was small and Erik approaches the work with a psychology background, just what I wanted. However, I have a lot of gastric issues, specifically acid reflux. You are told to stop all medications before the retreat, so they don’t interfere. However I did a lot of reading after the retreat and learned that hydrochloric acid kills the DMT. So, the medicine didn’t have much of an effect on me. It was still extremely valuable, and I look forward to trying again, but next time I will continue my regular stomach medication and hopefully will be able to feel the medicine more fully.
Sapan Inka was an experience to remember. I took part in 2 ayahuasca ceremonies and 1 San Pedro ceremony. The ayahuasca caused the best feeling of coziness that I have ever felt in my life. I was quite relaxed during the experience and felt the urge to snuggle up all wrapped in the blanket. I didn’t experience a large amount of visuals, but the thoughts flowed more clearly. I also found upon returning home that my habit of picking and biting my nails had diminished, so apparently ayahuasca has the ability to help with beating drug addiction AND bad habits.
The San Pedro experience in nature was weird in that I found myself thinking about negative things while on the San Pedro, but they didn’t bother me as much as they would if I was sober. I had the feeling this was an attempt to bring negative thoughts to the surface in a way that I could deal with them better.
But the best part of the Sapan Inka retreat was the trip to Machu Picchu. I felt profound metaphysical energies while there, and did indeed feel like a more spiritually enhanced person upon leaving.
Erik & Nilda were really interesting folks. Their way of making the ayahuasca ceremonies more enchanting with song and music was quite enjoyable and psychedelic. The food they served was wonderful. The nature atmosphere of Sapan Inka was quite pleasant to be in. Erik also did a great job of helping prep for the ceremonies and showed great wisdom.
The only reason I give 4 and not 5 stars was because Erik took the air out of my balloon a bit at the end of the retreat when he suggested I seek some therapy since I came across as a schizophrenic or autistic spectrum individual to him and he felt that could be problematic for me in the real world. I was kinda astonished to hear this because even though he wasn’t the first person to tell me that, I would expect someone in the field of entheogenic medicine and shamanism to be quite accepting of people like I who talk about far out things like metaphysics, conspiracies, and alien life. I guess he wasn’t too used to having people like that come to his retreat center. Nilda also got uncomfortable when I tried to give her a special type of goodbye hug before leaving and wasn’t interested in hearing why I decided to hug her the way I did, and seeing her get uncomfortable also took the air out of my balloon a bit.
But all that aside, the retreat was worth it and I would indeed recommend Sapan Inka as a potential ayahuasca retreat center, regardless of how Erik & Nilda perceived by uniqueness to be detrimental, they were still wonderful folks that and are definitely NOT snake oil salesman who care only about money.
The retreat with Erik and Nilda in Sapan Inka was a beautiful and deeply healing experience. I felt safe during and after the ceremony and was really welcomed into their cozy home. The scenery is absolutely spectacular and magical. I couldn’t have imagined a place more perfect to rest and heal with nature. The food was really delicious and we were given in abundance! The daytime was blissful, walking through the sacred valley and witnessing waterfalls amidst fantastical mountain peaks. Thank you very much for welcoming me into your home Erik and Nilda, in deep gratitude” – Olivia
