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.

Lovely gronds and only 20 minutes from Shenandoah National Park. The quirky buildings and raised paths are whimsical. The room cozy with just the right amount of space and lots of natural light. Very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.

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.
