WACHUMA RETREAT

with Dario Hampi Pakari

Wachuma

San Pedro knew as Wachuma the sacred cactus, used in the Andes for healing purposes and re-connection with the mother earth (Pachamama).
The plant helps us heal, grow, learn, awaken to a spiritual reality, and helps us reach higher states of consciousness and understand the world by looking at it from another perspective.

Dario Hampi Pakari

Evening “White” Wachuma ceremony and Wachuma Power Walk to the top of the mountain.

This traditional ceremony will be led by Dario Hampi Pakari, a Medicine Man from the family Sacred Fire of Itzachilatlan, a community of traditional healers, committed to protect and present ancient healing practices in a respectful and genuine way.

In this tradition, in this ceremony, we pray sharing the Sacred plants from the Andes. During the night, accompanied by singing and drumming with traditional instruments, we (re)connect to Mother Earth, Father Sky, four elements and seven sacred directions. We call upon our ancestors and ancient spirits to help us raise the prayer for ourselves, our families and humanity.

Temazcal ceremonies

Sunset and sunrise sweat lodge ceremonies
The Temazkal is a indigenous sweat lodge ceremony, a ritual that has lasted for more than a thousand years!
The temazcal is a low round structure with a rather low entrance.
During the ritual, heated stones are brought into the bath, which is periodically poured with herbal infusions in the process.
Thanks to the properties of various healing herbs and high temperature of the volcanic stones the participants will be able to achieve a state that many describe as “rebirth”:
• calmness and clarity of mind
• detoxification of the physical and energetic bodies

Accomodation

You’ll get a special treat from an overnight stay in a carefully restored 19th-century farmhouse. The house is decorated in a rustic style, which makes the rooms cozy and comfortable.

You are in for a terrific vacation, with a full immersion in nature. An eco-friendly location with spectacular views of Sicily, a secluded atmosphere, and the best organization will make the retreat unforgettable!
