A Place to Find Your Path
and Touch the Heart of Existence
Plant medicine shamanism is for sincere and mature people who understand the value of a direct spiritual experience. We offer powerful, heart-touching Huachuma (San Pedro) and Ayahuasca ceremonies under professional shamanic guidance in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Our time spent together on the medicine is a valuable interaction that often yields healing and understanding. Each new ceremony is a continuation of the previous one, building towards healing and expansion of consciousness. Although even one ceremony can have a positive impact on your life, giving yourself more time and respecting the process is more beneficial.
Take a spiritual vacation from the mundane and profane to find what is special and sacred!
Under the expert guidance of local curandero Don Juan, Huachuma Wasi offers Ayahuasca retreats at our center in the beautiful Sacred Valley of the Incas. This is an excellent opportunity to connect to the ancient medicine tradition of the rainforest and experience the profound synergy between the two great teacher plants of South American shamanism, Ayahuasca and Huachuma.
Located in Calca, the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, our retreat center consists of two big houses, each having private rooms for our guests. We have a good Wi-Fi connection, hot showers, comfortable beds and a lovely garden to make you feel at home. Surrounded by the stunning beauty of the Andes, the Huachuma Wasi is an inspiring, comfortable place to relax, enjoy and think creatively. This is an ideal place to learn and integrate the huachuma experience during your stay.
Sergey Baranov is the founder of Huachuma Wasi, a shamanic healing center in the Sacred Valley, which is open all year round to receive guests and spiritual seekers. Sergey’s work with Huachuma is an intimate and personal encounter with an ancient stream of healing energies as opposed to mass-market “mystical’’ tourism.
Sergey’s spiritual path has become his means of livelihood. By doing what he loves he introduces people to an ancient healing sacrament, that grows naturally in the high Andean environment in which he has made his home.
Sergey is the author of The Cactus Of Sanity, PATH: Seeking Truth in a World of Lies and The Mescaline Confession: Breaking Through the Walls of Delusion. His writing chronicles the spiritual search which lead him to the mountains of Peru to work with the sacred Huachuma (San Pedro) cactus and the perspective he has gained from over ten years of ongoing shamanic work.
For people interested in shamanism, and specifically the work we do at Huachuma Wasi, we highly recommend reading his books.
