Retreat Center Category: San Pedro (Huachuma)
Come and experience a life changing journey at Ayni Retreat Center.
We offer 12, 8, 6 and 5 day retreats that include ceremonies with Ayahuasca and Huachuma (San Pedro). We also have a Temazcal ceremony, which is also called a Sweat Lodge.
You will be fully supported before, during and after a retreat by experienced staff to facilitate your transformation and answer any questions you may have. Safety of our guests is our #1 priority. Our Shamans and Healers are experienced with these medicines and are also available to talk to, before and/or after ceremonies if you wish.
Ayni is a word that comes from the indigenous Andean language "quichua". It means reciprocity, solidarity, cooperation and mutual support. The Shaman and Staff are committed to the meaning of this word in order to facilitate an experience for you that changes your life for the better.
The housing is a collection of patrimonial (heritage) buildings which are authentic and antique. The buildings were built in 1557. This truly adds to the experience because it feels as if you've gone back in time.
