"As plant medicine has recently become trendy, it can be hard to separate the real practitioners from the fakes. Scott and Caro are the real deal. All of their choices, from the retreat locations to the healers to the supplemental workshops, are thoughtfully chosen. This can be life-changing work, but it's also challenging, emotionally and physically. You must have facilitators you can trust in order to get the most out of your experience, and I trust Scott and Caro completely."

The retreat center, Sach’a Munay (meaning: “Love from the ancient forest” in Quechua)– is located in the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. It is a location which fosters a balance of safety and nourishment, allowing retreat participants to go deep into their personal healing work while also having the necessary space and tranquility to relax and integrate.

We are proud to work with master healers of the Shipibo tradition who come from a long lineage of wisdom, apprenticeship and mastery of powerful Amazonian plants. We choose to work with a male and a female healer as we find that this is a deeply complimentary way to work, one that fosters the integration of both the divine masculine and divine feminine in every participant.

Retreat Leader & Ceremonial Facilitator

Scott Pilara, an author and pioneer in the field of personal development and addiction treatment, began his journey working with plant medicine in 2014, when a colleague invited him to a drug and alcohol treatment facility to observe how medicinal plants can be used within that context. While there he witnessed the efficacy of master plant medicines in treating behavioral and mental health concerns, spurring his passion to work with sacred medicinal plants ever since. After spending prolonged periods of time in the Amazon training with Shipibo healers to further his knowledge and relationships with plant medicines, he has become a firm believer that medicinal plants are our allies in healing and growth, and it is his sincerest joy to hold space for others to explore this ancient wisdom for themselves.

Co-Leader & Ceremonial facilitator

Carolina "Caro Luna"  has accumulated over a decade of experience working with indigenous cultures and plant medicine in Latin America. For the past seven years she has held leadership positions in ceremonial settings and retreats in Peru, Colombia, Mexico, and the UK. She has guided over a thousand first time and experienced participants in medicinal work with ayahuasca and peyote as ceremonial practices, as well as facilitated Elemental Shamanic breath-work workshops and seminars. As a Latin American with Western upbringing, she sees both her identity and work as a bridge between cultures and approaches, but also as a platform from which to create new spaces of dialog in the spirit of radical transparency, authenticity and growth.

"Partaking in ceremony for the first time was a beautiful experience, and I have Scott and Caro to thank for that. To take the plunge and decide to do this work is no easy feat, however, with the two of them as facilitators I was able to move forward in my spiritual and emotional journey with comfort and security, knowing I was in safe hands."

There is also a private dining area for the group (with a dedicated chef and kitchen team) as well as two living rooms spaces each with fireplaces, and of course, the gardens and swimming pool for you to enjoy.

THE SACRED VALLEY

The Sacred Valley of Peru is located in the Andes Mountains. It is home to the twelve mountains known as “Apus” — “luminous beings” who are said to intercede on behalf of people. They are acknowledged as sacred spirits, each with their own identity and unique energy. Those who come to our retreat will have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the master Shipibo healers who engage with us for ritual and ceremony. We believe our world today benefits greatly from contact with these ancient sites, practices and shamanic traditions, and the Sacred Valley is an ideal location to participate in this type of ceremonial work.
