Ayahuasca schedule

Sacred Journeys offers Ayahuasca healing ceremonies during retreats. The diet and activities will be adjusted around the ceremonies. They will be sharing information about the medicine work prior to participating in a ceremony and they will also be offering support and integration circles after the work, if necessary.

You will journey safely and well in the Sacred Valley. The facilitators are very experienced and are good musicians as well. This work is held in a very safe and beautiful space with the beautiful mountains of the Sacred Valley surrounding the place. Many people seek to heal and free themselves from physical ailments as well.

This is a time when you will be blessed with the possibility to heal ailments quicker than ever. You are in a time of quick transformations and mass consciousness shifts. How these shifts are experienced depends on how much baggage and limiting patterns people still hold unto.

The indigenous people of Peru are masters in plant medicine and the knowledge has been brought on from generation to generation. They know so much about the plants in the jungle and what each one is useful for. The medicine work is done with the grandmother.

The ceremonies offered will happen in the evening througout the night and is a highly transformative experience. You do not need to have attended one before in order to participate. Beautiful music is played throughout the night and a special space is held. The medicine is known to help to heal addictions, psychic illnesses, physical illnesses or imbalances, and clear out anything that needs clearing and healing at this time.

It is recommended and important to look at what areas of your life you would like healing and set the intention before this work. The diet will be suited to this work a couple of days before and the day after. Being in the powerful mountains of the Sacred Valley will be very supportive of this work.

Vegan cooking courses

Sacred Journeys offers vegan cooking courses where you can learn how to make your own yummy and healthy vegan cooked and raw food. They teach dishes that are very tasty and healthy and often missed in a vegan diet. You will never feel bored eating plant-based foods again.

Yoga and meditation

You will be able to attend yoga class every morning on this trip. The form of yoga that is taught is from the eight limbed tradition, Rajadhiraja yoga. It comes closer to classical, effective yoga asanas that are relaxing and stimulates and massages the glands in the body. Angel will teach yoga asanas that will suit everyone and that you can learn and practice on your own too.

In the classes, you will do warm ups, yoga asanas, yoga massage, and deep guided relaxation. The yoga form is deep, gentle, and very effective. Angel will guide the meditation and will also teach a mantra.

You will also learn shielding and grounding and you will meditate together which strenghthens the effects of meditation. Some of the benefits of meditation are: it relaxes the mind and body deeply and it calms the breath and blood pressure and helps the balance of melatonin in the pineal gland.

Meditation is a healing where you can relax much deeper and get in touch with your core and heart. It is an ancient art practiced in many parts of the planet. Meditation can improve memory and give clarity of mind. It is very recommended. You will start every day with meditation before the yoga class and end the day with a meditation before dinner. It will also improve your sleep.

Sacred Journeys hopes this trip can be deeply transformative and bring something new and very positive into your life. Please note that you do not need to have practiced yoga and meditation in order to attend and you do not need to attend all classes but it is very recommended. It is also said that regular yoga and meditation practices prevent diseases and aging and it reduces stress.

Anybody can pratice yoga and meditation. Sacred Journeys will also adjust the classes to the group. In addition, they will follow a healthy yogic, vegetarian or vegan diet with many salads and smoothies on the tour. This will help in meditation and also the healing work.

  • Review by Mathilde from Norway

    "This trip has been one of the best in my life. It was truly amazing. If you are curious about it, just go! You will not regret it. I was in Peru in February and March, and at that time of the year, the nature was really lush and green. We visited so many beautiful sites. Macchu Picchu was of course a highlight. But the other places and things we did was also so exciting. The trip has done much for me, especially when it comes to do meditation and yoga on a deeper level. The food was great, the Peruvians are very welcoming and sweet, and all in all, it was a great trip."

  • Review by Bjornar from Norway

    "She uses the name Angel, and that is what she is. I have attended one retreat in Peru with her and she really knows what she is doing. The theme for the retreat was yoga, meditation, and vegan food. We also went to the tourist sites in the area and studied the Inka ruins, the salt mines, and a natural warm water bathing place. I would recommend these retreats to anyone. Linn is an honest human being caring for mother earth, preservation of nature, and the greater good for all."
