The use of Huachuma -the original Quechua pronunciation for the San Pedro cactus- is among the oldest of the different ancestral psychoactive plants, from 6.800 BCE. The name is attributed to the belief that just as St Peter holds the keys to heaven, the effects of the cactus allow users to reach heaven while still on earth.
San Pedro mesas and hikes in northern Peru and Ecuador are the most traditional ceremonial settings. We have created a modern reinterpretation of the original space of consciousness and reconnection with nature—a sailing journey in a 34-foot solar catamaran in Ibiza.
Welcome to this avant-garde proposal for developing awareness and integral well-being thanks to the tremendous heart-opening capabilities of San Pedro, a masculine plant spirit commonly referred to as grandfather.
Having previous experience with sacred medicines and/or psychedelics and knowing how to swim are essential requirements to join this retreat.

Kambó, a traditional shamanic practice, uses the secretion of the giant green monkey tree frog from the Amazon to bring about a deep physical, emotional, energetic, and spiritual cleansing process. Kambó purifies, detoxifies, and reboots the immune system, treats certain health conditions, and improves stamina.
