We provide a very high standard of accommodation in a relaxing, tranquil and comfortable resort setting adjacent to the banks of the Sacred River, Willkamayu in Peru.
Mountains, glaciers, hummingbirds and butterflies surround our resort. Far from light pollution, the clear night skies are abound with stars, a truly breathtaking sight. We are often illuminated by the moon and Milky Way. The Inca saw the Sacred River winding through the valley as a reflection of the "celestial river."

Group facilitation sessions are available as well as individual sessions at no additional cost. Laundry service is also included.

We are located an hour and a half from the ancient city of Cusco in the exquisite nature of the Sacred Valley. At 9,000 feet, the air is clean and refreshing. There are no city sounds, no vapour trails, just nature to be heard here.
You will find that our restorative space is an ideal setting for tranquil reflection. The stunning Andies mountains surround the resort. The maginificent view of Apu Pitusiray from our gardens is a neverending beauty from sun up to sundown. Our location is a part of the healing experience.
Medicine information (content and method of preparation)Type of Medicine: San Pedro (Huachuma)Medicine content :
Wachuma (San Pedro) is a type of cactus that grows in the Andes. It is also known as Trichocereus species. Our wachuma medicine is prepared from individually selected cacti, chosen by genetics, as well as their medicinal qualities. The wachuma is prepared fresh for each retreat. Its an extensive process to prepare and has been perfected by Maxwell, who is pleased to share the medicine he has gained through many years of practice.
Wachuma is a teacher plant. When we participate with it, we are often found to experience personal growth and healing. Often memories and sensations come to the consciousness of the individual, which provide insights and release through experiencing those scenerios again in a safe and comfortable environment. It is also a physical medicine. Many individuals find increased energy and appreciation of kinetic practices like yoga and dance. Both psychologically and physically wachuma ofers a new perspective on life.
Our wachuma is significantly more potent than other cactus. The selection of our cacti is based on genetics and specimen health. Maxwell's preparation extracts the medicine to potent concentrations while retaining its healing qualities. Theres nothing like the power of a healthy wachuma experience, and we encourage you to participate!Medicine preparation:
