Product Description

Weekly San Pedro Ceremony at Hummingbird Retreat Pisaq

Paul & Suzanne host regular San Pedro ceremonies, usually on Wednesday of each week – please see the website calendar for the current schedule. Ceremonies are held in our beautiful home and garden; amongst the terraces of vegetables, herbs, fruits, flowers and the sacred Huachuma plants. The garden has been created with areas where people can gather together, or have time alone, and enjoy the stunning views of the Sacred Valley and surrounding mountains, the hummingbirds, and one’s own inner energetic space. We try to limit the group size to  twelve persons.

Our intention for holding ceremonies is to create a space of healing, personal reflection, and conscious awareness; where each person feels safe and comfortable, and has the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in this heart-centred medicine, and to experience their own consciousness in a new and profound way.

For those who wish to participate, the day before the ceremony we often gather at 8am to make the medicine for the following day. This is also an opportunity to offer one’s prayers and intentions into the medicine, meet some of the other participants, familiarize oneself with the facilities, and ask any questions.

On the day of the ceremony we gather at about 8:30 am and share tea before beginning the ceremony at 9:30 am.  The ceremony lasts between ten to fourteen hours. In the early evening we provide a home-cooked vegetarian meal and yummy dessert. There is the opportunity to sit around the fire and share a gentle closing space together.

There is the option of heading back to town for the night after the ceremony, or sleeping on foam-mattresses in front of the wood-stove on the ceremony-room floor at Hummingbird Retreat. A limited number of private bedrooms are available at extra cost (see below).

The morning following the ceremony, after some world-class Peruvian coffee or organic herbal teas from the garden, we close our time together with an integration session.


Making Medicine: There may be medicine making the day before the ceremony.  Please confirm with us the week before the ceremony. If so, it generally starts at 8:00 am and lasts for a couple of hours.

Ceremony Day: Please arrive close to 8:30 am, catch your breath, meet the other participants and sip some tea before we begin the ceremony around 9:30 am.

If you are intending to come and participate in ceremony, please let us know by 9am the day before, so that we can make the appropriate amount of medicine and food.

What to bring: Water, snacks, layered clothing (it can get very warm and very cold), something to sit on, sun protection; hat, glasses, sun block; flashlight, and maybe your sacred talisman or crystal. Mostly, bring an open-heart and a willingness to ‘show up’ and embrace the medicine.

What to take away:  We have composting facilities but would appreciate you taking away you rubbish and plastic bottles.
