San Pedro known as Wachuma the sacred cactus, used in the Andes for healing purposes and re-connection with mother earth (Pachamama).

The plant helps us heal, grow, learn, and awaken to a spiritual reality, and helps us reach higher states of consciousness and understand the world by looking at it from another perspective.

The estate where our retreat will take place is located among the hills covered with a dense forest. It is a very secluded and eco-friendly place where you can be filled with tranquility, feel unity with nature, take a break from the hustle and bustle and get rid of stress.

Thanks to its elevated location, it offers a magnificent view of Lake Orta and the mountains of the Monte Rosa range. A whole ten hectares with magnificent gardens, terraces, chestnut woods, meadows, and a pond will be completely at our disposal.

Group practices and integration

Integration setting and functional movement before the ceremony will help the body and mind to relax, as well as help you to let go of fear or expectation so that you are more open when receiving the plant medicine.

The beauty of the Wachuma ceremony is found in the teachings that are revealed to us. The meditative and self-reflective aspects of yoga and energetic practices can help you to bring these teachings in practical ways into your daily life.
