Andean Wisdom Retreats

Q’ero Wisdom Journey

June 6th-17th, 2023

Our next 12-day retreat is scheduled for June 6-17th, 2023. This experience is crafted to strengthen your connection to Pacha Mama and the Apus (tutelary spirits of the mountains) through traditional ceremony and mesa (medicine bundle) work. For those who have completed the online mesa course, this will be a chance to receive all karpay (energetic transmissions) in-person, and to get to know the contents of your mesa by visiting these magical places and learning their medicine through direct experience. While it is highly recommended to complete the foundational online mesa course as preperation for this retreat, it is not required. We welcome anyone with a sincere call in their heart to join us on this epic adventure. There will be plenty of opportunity to begin building your mesa if you have not already done so.

Each of our four stops: Ausangate, Q’eros nation, Apu Veronica, Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu will be potent portals of activation and learning through rich ceremonial work with the elements, Apus, and plant spirit allies.

Our retreats include medicine walks with San Pedro, integration support, traditional Andean ceremonies, mesa (medicine bundle) building, energy healing sessions, sweat lodge, and deep teachings from Q’eros nation.

Optional participation: Sweat lodges can deeply enrich our work together. Our sweat lodges are held by experienced Sun Dancers who hold great reverence and respect for this beautiful medicine and the traditions from which it is shared.

Optional participation: Huachuma (San Pedro) ceremonies are a powerful way to receive deep healing while opening up to the energy medicine of the Andes. Ceremonies are conducted by experienced facilitators who offer integration support throughout the retreat. Q’ero elders offer additional energetic support during these ceremonies.

Retreat costs include food, lodging, and transport to Ausangate, Q’eros nation, Apu Veronica, Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu (all costs are included except flights to Peru and optional purchases of artesenia and mesa cloths).

$3,600 USD per person. Space is limited to 10 participants.

Sweat lodges are led by long-time practitioners of these honored traditions. We consider this an additional offering that is kept seperate from financial interest, as demonstrated by the Sun Dance elders.



“The majestic experience with Don agustin, Santos and Richy was a highlight for me in my life path of healing. We rode on horseback in Ausangate. An eagle soared overhead and I can not find words to desribe the energy and beauty of the land, Simply in awe. Working with this friendly team of souls was and continues to be a benefit to me on this healing path, The gentleness, kindness, and willingess to share knowledge was such a gift. I highly recommend this experience. Don Agustin is gifted with a quiet demeanor and carries powerful connections. I hope to work again with this team soon. I received four karpay from Don Agustin. Each one knocked my socks off. Simply put, epic.”
