We usually hold two Ayahuasca ceremonies per week at Ayahuasca-Wasi on Mondays and Fridays, unless we are holding an Ayahuasca retreat.
We post the exact dates of ceremonies two weeks in advance. We are not holding ceremonies on other dates than the ones scheduled. So once you choose a date from the schedule on the left contact us in order to make the reservation and give you further instructions.
Please read carefully ALL the information on this page before contacting us. (Send e-mail).
If this is your first ceremony with us please include your full name, nationality, the date of ceremony from the list on the left, and a brief explanation of your motivation to partake in the ceremony. Also, please indicate if you have previous experience with this medicine.
It is important for us to know if you are taking any kind of medication (specially antidepressant medication), so please let us know when you send the email.
The cost of the ceremony is S/.170 soles (aprox. US$70) per person, which will be collected here before the ceremony.
The ceremonies are guided by people with years of experience taking Ayahuasca and they are used to dealing with different situations arising in this type of ceremonies. One person guides the ceremony and is assisted by other experienced assistants, in order to provide a safe environment for you to go through the experience. We know it is important for you to feel safe, especially if it is the first time you are taking ayahuasca and we do our best to provide such a space.
We usually have between 15 to 30 people (max. 30 people) in each ceremony, all coming from different paths from around the world.
We ask you to arrive here at 7pm, no later than 7.30pm. It is ok to arrive earlier, or leave your belongings if you wish to explore Pisaq or the surrounding areas. You can use this time to meditate in the temple or in the gardens in order to prepare for your journey.
After getting to know the other people journeying, the guidelines for the ceremony will be given, and the ceremony will start. The ceremony will start at 9pm and will end around 3am and you are welcome to sleep at the temple till the morning. We can help you if you need transportation after the ceremony, just let us know when you come.
We provide the basic things for the ceremony such as blankets, buckets, and cushions. We ask you to bring water and comfortable clothes for the night and something to eat in the morning, if you wish.
