The Peru Multi-Dimensional Yoga and Plant Medicine Retreat with Anjali Sunita and Jean-Jacques Gabriel.

Our retreats are for those who seek a responsible way of elevating their self awareness and consciousness. The traditional plant medicine work sheds light into our reality and shows you what you need to heal, and/or integrate in order to transcend onto higher levels of expanded awareness and harmony. The retreat offers you the key to ancestral shamanic practices which will lead to amplified states of consciousness. This retreat is for people of color, creating safe, sacred, healing space for transformation, where we can process our individual and shared experiences in community.

peru4We will stay at a new Yoga retreat center in the the village of Pisaq right next to the entrance of the sacred ruins, at the base of the mountain -where the energy flows strongly. These digs will be sufficient and simple. We can house a maximum of 15 participants.

We will also have opportunities to learn about medicines and food from Peru from other local guides who will teach during the retreat. We will work on sacred medicine songs as well as Sanskrit mantras that we can sing during ceremonies to help purify and move energy. The meditations and visualization practices will be specifically geared toward cleansing our energy and staying present so we may receive the most from our work with the plants.

3 couples rooms / single deluxe at $1100 per person
2 single privates
 at $1200 per person
5 of the 2 person shared rooms at $1300 per person

This includes all workshops, ceremonies, housing, and meals.

There are also some excellent restaurants in the area, plus there is a full kitchen where we can prepare and store vegetarian meals, the owner of the center also owns Prasada, a local vegetarian restaurant and will offer the best food in town.

Again, the fee does not include your flight to Cusco or the cab/bus ride to Pisaq. The price is very reasonable compared to similar retreats. The sooner you get your tickets the better!
