Join Me in Peru!

For Chimbre’s grand opening, we invite you to join us for an illuminating 10-day journey into the heart of our world.  In honor of Earth Day, we will break ground on what we see as a multi-generational endeavor to reconnect humankind with the spirit of the planet.  We are inviting our friends from around the world – visionaries in science and medicine, art and literature – to join us as we embark on a shamanic initiation with Master Mancoluto, a first level master shaman trained in the tradition of the ancient Peruvian civilization known as Chavin.  
Mancoluto works closely with two indigenous plant medicines: ayahuasca, a tea-like brew of Amazonian plants used by South American shamans for thousands of years; and the San Pedro cactus, a revered shamanic medicine native to the Peruvian Andes region.

Mancoluto’s expertise with these sacred plant teachers will set the stage for a profound journey of collective healing, learning, and transformation. 
In conjunction with these ceremonies, the retreat will include revelatory talks from globally celebrated ethnopharmacologist Dennis J. McKenna, PhD; Wasiwaska founder and ayahuasca researcher, Luis Eduardo Luna, PhD; author of the acclaimed book Aya, Rak Razam; and many more.  Retreat participants may also enjoy a variety of activities led by our team, including invigorating yoga classes and group meditations by Marisa Smith, MA, restorative massage and bodywork, and excursions into the infinitely beautiful Chimbre terrain.
