Sacred Terrain: Inward and Outward Exploration in Peru
Sacred Valley, Peru Retreat with Sheila Ewers


Peru retreat

Join Sheila Ewers for a Journey into Peru’s Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu and discover the magnificent terrain of self, soul and ancient spirituality. Together, we’ll immerse in Peruvian Culture exploring the sacred sites of the Incan empire, engaging in traditional Andean ceremony and practicing yoga, mindfulness and meditation. A driving principle of the Andean people is the concept of Ayni, or reciprocity. This is the idea that everything in the universe is connected, and therefore, each individual must live in right relation to each other and to all of creation, both giving and receiving. This journey is an opportunity to hone that skill within yourself, to deepen your connection to the earth, to weave into the fabric of a new culture, to feel supported by and to share the wisdom of divine consciousness, and to immerse in the sacred center of self and soul.

The retreat center’s name translates as “love from the ancient forest.” It is nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees, nourished by a magnificent waterfall in the Sacred Valley of Peru. This lovely spot is in the Andes Mountains and home of the twelve mountains known as Apus—“luminous beings.” Those who come to the center have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for ritual and Despacho ceremony.

The guests at this center enjoy delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly-prepared ingredients. Each guest room is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley. The entire center embodies kindness, love, and wholeness that seem to permeate the magical place.
