San Pedro Cactus Vision

Sacred Medicine Men's Retreat in the Ecuadorian Andes

Friday August 30- Saturday September 7 2024 near Cuenca, Ecuador

You are warmly invited to attend a life-changing 8 day men’s retreat in the South American Andes where we will explore our connection to the Sacred Masculine, and engage in powerful rituals and transformational practices. 

Masculine energy is out of balance in today’s world- the desperate social, political and environmental crisis’s we are experiencing are the result of the collective actions of deeply unconscious men who are dangerously out of touch with authentic masculinity.

This retreat offering features Sacred Medicines San Pedro and Kambo, as well as breathwork and cold immersion, men’s shadow work, Osho meditations and more.

Engage with Sacred Medicine and Energetic Healing Practices in a Beautiful and Safe Environment


Ecuador has always been a beautiful, peaceful and safe country. The recent violence between drug gangs and police you heard about in the media was mainly focused on the coastal borders with Colombia and Peru, and the city of Guayaquil.  

Ecuador’s new president has empowered the military to assist the police in securing the countries ports, prisons and borders. This has greatly decreased the amount of violent crime in the country. 

In central Ecuador where we are located, we are far removed from violent crime. Quito and Cuenca have safe, modern airports. Cuenca is one of the safest cities in all of South America.  

San Pedro Cactus Spiritual Retreats


The San Pedro Cactus is one of the seven master plant teachers and our personal favorite. The San Pedro experience is a beautiful one. The experience is different for everyone every time because we are all unique beings. It takes us into our own heart and lets us see where we can make changes in our life to be more loving and less fearful. It helps us love ourselves so we can attract and spread more love. The San Pedro Cactus is a powerful healer. A recent participant in a San Pedro workshop said: “I have never felt so loved, it’s like being in the womb again.” It’s gentle medicine. Most people just want to lounge around and enjoy it. It does have some mild hallucinogenic effects for some people. One may see some rainbow colors refracting off the plants, or feel and see the earth breathing. Usually people feel like they are seeing everything for the first time. It’s very mild and enjoyable. San Pedro is a physical and emotional healer. Many people suffering from diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s, depression, multiple sclerosis or fibromyalgia, have experienced complete healing after drinking the medicine. San Pedro continues to work with people for weeks or even months after they experience it. It sharpens our awareness towards old behaviors and thought patterns that no longer serve us. It’s only when we become aware that we can do something different.

Most people experience bliss on all levels and have a more positive outlook on life afterwards. San Pedro connects us back to nature and shows us there is no separation between all living things.

People drink San Pedro for many reasons. The main reason is that they want to experience healing. Often they come to learn more about themselves, or to find direction or clarity in their lives. Some drink to eliminate Dis-ease or Dis-order. Others drink just to experience the plant and see what it has to teach them or remind them of. Whatever your intention is, it will certainly be served by San Pedro.
