Rave Reviews

It’s pure joy to watch our guests peel back the layers, release their stress, reconnect with themselves and nature. To get out of their heads and into their bodies. Away from the computer screens, into the beauty of the mountains. To escape the 9–5 grind and experience a new way of being. To remember that they have the choice to take the best care of their mind, body and spirit every moment. The exquisite peaks in the Sacred Valley and magic of the rich culture in the Andes makes this process effortless. Below are just a few of the testimonials from our past medicine retreats and ceremonies.

“Amber creates the most magical and transformative retreats! This was my third retreat with her. Her years of service and experience leading medicine retreats speaks volumes. I’ve sat in many ceremonies over the years, but Amber’s attention to setting the perfect environment, preparing us properly, and coaching us through integration is stellar. I’ll be back VERY soon!”

– Jackie from San Francisco

“Since the retreat and sacred plant medicine ceremonies, I’m functioning at optimal levels every day. I don’t get stressed out. My mind has also slowed down so much that I feel as if I’m actually living my life for the first time in 34 years! All of this with an even greater connection to mother nature too! It’s unbelievable! I will return for more insights and revelations. Thank you SO much for this life changing experience!”

– Rourke from Atlanta

Amelia Panduro

We have the honor and privilege of working intimately with one of Peru’s most respected medicine women and master herbalists, Amelia Panduro. She is one of the last living grandmothers from the Shipibo tribe. At 65 years old she is deeply revered for her life long study and knowledge of medicinal plants. Plus her powerful healing work with all master plants of the Amazon. She specializes in traditional plant dietas as well.

Amelia is gentle, loving and full of laugher. Her true power and beauty, driven by a deep passion for her work, is revealed through her presence during ceremony and guidance for those working with plant medicine.

Within this retreat Amelia serves the Grandmother of all master plants, Ayahuasca. Ayahuasca has been brewed, drank, and served extensively for thousands of years by the Shipibo tribe to elicit spiritual revelations, rewire the mind, activate DNA, and heal on all levels. One ceremony sipping this mystical brew has been described as 10 years of psychotherapy compressed into one night, plus the deepest physical and emotional cleanse of your life.

Creating a safe space for deep healing is our number one priority. Amelia facilitates her ceremonies with two of her highly trained assistants to offer the most personal attention for our guests.

We highly recommend you read through the comprehensive site Reset.Me and watch documentaries, to learn more about sacred plant medicines. The more you educate yourself the better. We are happy to share our favorite resources with you via email.

Munay Sonqo Retreat Center

Munay Sonqo Retreat Center, formerly know as Sach’a Munay, is nestled at the base of a magnificent waterfall in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees. It’s located in the center of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and 1.5 hours drive from Cusco. It’s a place to connect to the incredible depth and beauty of what nature offers.

The visionaries behind this retreat center provide impeccable and loving service for all of their yoga and medicine retreats. Their beautifully designed temples with panoramic views of the valley are fantastic for ceremonies and yoga alike. Each guest room is appointed with Peruvian style and super cozy beds. Shared and private rooms are available to suite your preferences.

Thanks to the wonderful staff, the entire center embodies the kindness, love and wholeness that permeates this magical place.

Organic Plant Based Cuisine

Sip on green juice, smoothies, herbal teas, and savory soups. Munch rainbow salads, wraps, noodles, and ancient grain bowls. Your taste buds will enjoy the food as much as your belly.

All meals are crafted with the medicine’s dietary guidelines to cleanse, detox, and boost your energy. We strongly believe in the importance of following these guidelines to aide the medicines ability to do its work.
