Come on a a retreat for accelerated healing and deep psychological, emotional and spiritual reprogramming in Peru this December!
This all-inclusive retreat will be a unique merging of some of the most powerful healing and mind-expanding traditions of the indigenous shamans of Peru and the Western world: medicine work and psychotherapy. It will be a combination of three Ayahuasca journeys with a very experienced and well known shaman with a heavenly voice and an out-of-this world brew. In most days before/after and between the ceremonies, there will be transformational workshops designed to help you navigate the shamanic landscapes, and make the most out of the medicine journeys, facilitated by psychotherapist Meriana Dinkova. The workshops will address a variety of core issues that plant medicines can heal, and give you a map, a framework, and a cutting edge tool kit to navigate the Ayahuasca experience in a safe way, while maximizing the learning and the spiritual transformation it can provide. On most days there will also be yoga classes, led by Jamie Lehner.
Since the shaman is internationally well known, and gets flown to work with groups all over the world, to guarantee his safety when being abroad he will remain anonymous in this description and go by the name CHAKARUNA. If you need more information about him, send me a private message.
This retreat will be a unique combination of traditional healing modalities with Ayahuasca and other Master Plants, neo-shamanistic tools, psychotherapy techniques, yoga and group process.
We will use neo-shamanic technology aimed at recognizing and reprogramming of emotional malware , getting rid of psychological viruses, and rebooting and upgrading your personal and spiritual operating system:)
On some of the days between the ceremonies and the workshops, we will be visiting some of the absolutely gorgeous nature and wildlife sites in the area, and most likely include a kayak trip:) Participants will have the option to do a special plant diet with Master Plants, selected specifically for them by CHAKARUNA.
- Learn neo-shamanistic, transpersonal, and somatic techniques for navigating the multi-dimensional landscapes, and harvesting their spiritual treasures.
-Recognize and shift whatever emotional ties and unconscious beliefs are holding you back from being your highest and most authentic self, and from fully rocking your life and your expression in the world.
-Get support in custom-designing and embodying the YOU, that you are called and inspired to grow into, and learn how to live and manifest from that place.
-Become aware of our ancestral contracts and beliefs which are no longer serving you, and learn ways to align your energy and intention in ways that supercharge the manifestation of the goals and projects aligned with your deepest purpose
-Through specialized consciousness tools we will explore ways to deal with and shift difficult experiences, and uncover the treasures they often hide.
-You will become aware of places where you are still holding unresolved resentments and regrets and will learn rituals and practices that support you to forgive and let go – be it others or, most importantly, yourself.
-You will learn tools to open and work with different dimensions of reality and to use the beings from those realms as guides and allies. You will learn ways to work with the archetypes from your personal mythology as well as the ‘proper code of conduct’ when encountering entities from other planes.
-You will get a lot of support with integration of the experiences during the retreat into your life ‘back home’.
- On most days there will be Vinyasa yoga classes, based on a combination of Ashtanga and Sivananda, to help keep energy flowing through your body as you work with the plants, led by Jaime K Lehner.
-Those retreats tend to facilitate deep bonding between participants which often leads to friendships, community and support network, which go way beyond the retreat itself.
- You will get a free 25 min private energy healing session from Jamie Lehner, to integrate ceremonial experiences and re-balance your energetic field after ceremony, as well as help unravel any limiting patterns or emotional blockages experienced in and out of ceremony. These sessions are intended to help you deepen your own awareness of your energetic body and consciousness, which you then carry that expanded awareness into ceremony and into your life. There will be the option to book Jamie for longer sessions.

CHAKARUNA comes from a long lineage of ayahuasqueros, who initiated him into the into the world of shamanism. He grew up in a family/ cultural context, which used the medicine as a way to commune with the Almighty One. He started working with the brew when he was 17 and after vigorous training with different Amazonian shapibo shamans and the Quechua Mestizo indigenous community, he developed his own form of ceremonial work based on the traditional rituals. He has been leading ceremonies since the age of 25 when during a ceremony, he had a vision of a serpent (known as the spirit of the Ayahuasca) that communicated to him that the people were waiting for him to continue the work of his grandparents who were shamans. He embraced his mission to continue to be a guide to people who desired a closer connection with the Divine.
One of the main tools he uses in ceremony is singing the sacred icaros. The icaros are sacred songs that invite the Almighty to enter into the physical world and to provide the congregant with love and wisdom. I was impressed by his beautiful voice, weaving webs between realities, and by his proficiency playing the musical instruments he uses.
Here is how he describes his work in his own words:
'These spirits surround us – teach us in our soul, in our hearts to understand who we are. This sacrament is the channel that help us to go very deep… in the knowledge… from the nature… in the knowledge for the spirits… and the connection with God … with Great Spirit outside and within. They are helping us to rebalance with the Universe ( all our surroundings).
'When we start the ceremony we call and we pray ‘spirit of the Mama (Pachamama)’…‘spirit of this sacrament’… to be connected in our hearts, to be connected in the circle of ceremony. Circle of ceremony means – all together we are taking care of each other in the presence of God.
'The plants are the masters… the spirits are the teachers. We, the shamans are just channeling, we are just in the service to share the vibration of the Universe and to assist the congregants in connecting with our nature, which is God. In this moment after we take the sacred tea, the connection can be very strong, very deep. It causes us to confront a lot of fears that we have inside… our darkness. But then, the sacred plants particularly the Mother Plant, Ayahuasca leads us to our light and opens our heart for God’s vibration.
'Communicating with the plants is communicating directly with God. We pray to the plants and seek their guidance on matters of life, the learning of life, death, the hereafter and what is expected of each person to fulfill the expectations of the Divine that people live honorable lives.
'By imbibing the sacred tea, the people are transformed because they have had the experience of witnessing God personally as attested to by scores of pilgrims who have come to our ceremonies in Peru. The sacred ayahusaca as the vehicle to these sacred beings.'

: Meriana DInkova
Meriana Dinkova is a psychotherapist (MFT#45696) , a Life Coach and an Ayahuasca retreats organizer. She was disturbed by how little people are told about how to navigate and integrate strong psychedelic experiences and especially Ayahuasca, and developed her own system of psycho-spiritual and neo-shamanistic inner space navigation tools, which she has been teaching at her retreats and speaking about on Conferences, festivals and podcasts in the US and internationally. Her system has a lot of benefits for everyone, but especially for first timers. For people, who can't come to her retreats, but want to works with Meriana and learn her system, she also offers preparation and integration sessions over Skype.
Meriana has been teaching workshops on 'Navigating Altered States' since 2012, and since 2013 she has been organizing and leading retreats to Peru, which combine her system and her psychotherapy work with the Medicine work of experienced shamans. She has been pleased to see what a difference having those tools can make in the experience of participants. She has done speaking engagements and workshops about 'Navigating Altered States' at the International Amazonian Shamanism Conference in Peru, at the Women's Visionary Congress in California, at the Breaking Convention in London, at the Tantra Festival in Hawaii ,at the Envision festival in Costa Rica, at Burningman, with the Psychedelic Society SF and at other festivals and venues. Meriana has also been a guest at multiple psychedelic podcasts, like 'The Psychedelic Salon',' Reality Sandwich' , 'In A Perfect World' and others. She has been working with clients and teaching workshops since 2001.
