“Heal Your Heart, Purify Your Spirit and Discover YOU!”

Day 1 – Lima/ CUSCO/ PISAC (Saturday May 6th)

  • Arrive in Cusco no earlier than 11 am, to the sacred city of Cusco, center of the Incan Empire.
  • You will be picked up and transferred to Pisaq, in the Sacred Valley where the Catalina Center is located.

Day 2 – Fly to Iquitos and Stay Overnight (Sunday May 7th)

  • Iquitos is a Peruvian port city and gateway to the jungle lodges and tribal villages of the northern Amazon. Its district of Belén is known for its massive open-air street market and rustic stilt houses lining the Itaya River. In the historic center, the Main Square (Plaza de Armas) is surrounded by European-influenced buildings dating to the region’s turn-of-the-20th-century boom in rubber production.

Day 3 – Travel to Amazon Rainforest & Arrive at Healing Center (Monday May 8th)

The Amazon River Basin is home to the largest rainforest on Earth. The basin – roughly the size of the forty-eight contiguous United States – covers some 40 percent of the South American continent and includes parts of eight South American countries: Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, and Suriname, as well as French Guiana, a department of France.

Reflecting environmental conditions as well as past human influence, the Amazon is made up of a mosaic of ecosystems and vegetation types including rainforests, seasonal forests, deciduous forests, flooded forests, and savannas.

The basin is drained by the Amazon River, the world’s largest river in terms of discharge, and the second longest river in the world after the Nile. The river is made up of over 1,100 tributaries, 17 of which are longer than 1000 miles, and two of which (the Negro and the Madeira) are larger, in terms of volume, than the Congo river.

The Amazon Rainforest is thought to be home to 10% of known species on earth.

Day 4 to 6 – Experience Plant Medicine and see other sights in Rainforest (May 9th, 10th & 11th)

Partake in Healing Ceremony & Native Plant Medicine:

For those that are interested in plant medicine, you will meet with one of the foremost authorities and shamans of the plant medicine “Ayahuasca”. You will be walked through an internal celebration of self-discovery and love.

The plant shows us where we hold our negativity in our bodies, where it came from, and then shows us what we SHOULD have learned from that experience. Once we see that, we release the negativity in our bodies, and we feel really clean and light afterwards, and we can think of that same experience afterwards, and we can give thanks for the teachings we received. It teaches us that NO experience is a bad experience, IF we learn from it.

In the same way, it shows us our thought patterns, and teaches us that every illness we have, is NOT because of bad luck, but because of the way we think. It teaches us to stop and recognize HOW we think, and change our thoughts, into positive ones. This is how we clean our bodies from all illness…is by cleaning our minds. The medicine has produced many miracles, people being cured of cancer, and all sorts of illnesses, just by them drinking this sacred plant. The plant shows us too, that we are all children of the Light; we are all precious and special. It teaches us to see the divine within us, and to hold the divine light within us.

We also use this plant to reconnect to the earth. In this experience, we realize that there is NO separation between you, me, the earth, and the sky. We are all ONE. It’s one thing to read but to experience this oneness is one of the most beautiful gifts we can receive. The plant also teaches us to live in this world in balance and harmony, it teaches us compassion and understanding, and shows us clearly to love, respect and honor all things.

Day 7 – Return to Catalina Retreat Center (Friday May 12th)

We will spend the morning connecting to each other’s stories and lessons learned. The rest of the day will be free for you to finish any shopping in Pisac for souvenirs you still need to purchase or just take in a local coffee café and relax before your long trip back home the next day.
