Ancient Apu Ayahuasca Retreat: 12 Day Ayahuasca Retreat in the Sacred Valley Incorporating Andean Wisdom 16th August - 27th august
Maestro Leonardo: Maestro Leonardo is pure love. Leonardo is 85 years old and he first started drinking the medicine when he was 12 years old as is customary in the Shipibo lineage when a young person begins his training. Leonardo is the most humble, calm and loving individual I have ever had the honour of meeting. To sit near him is to feel healed he truly is the medicine. Every breath and every utterance from his person is from the medicine. Leonardo speaks mostly Shipibo, yet he understands Spanish and he will deeply understand you and what you need without any language at all. You will come to know and love his chuckle of understanding and be touched by his powerful Ikaros as they wash over you within the plant world and help you to release that which no longer serves you.
Lucia is a powerful Maestra and has been studying under her father for the last 4 years. When I first met her she had been studying for 2 years and she considered herself to be a novice and unable to hold space in ceremony without Maestro Leonardo’s guidance. This is a testament to the level of training that is undertaken by a Shipibo Maestro and made me feel very safe. After spending 2 years with this authentic Shipibo family I have seen how much work goes into really holding space in ceremony and what a great responsibility that is. It is not a responsibility to be taken lightly as if not held properly, ceremonies can be a very dangerous space energetically.
Lucia began her training when her third born son was 15 days old. As part of her sacrifice to learning this path she left her son in the care of her husband Augusto and went into the jungle to begin dieting under Maestro Leonardo’s guidance for one year. This was a grueling time for her, one year without salt, eating small portions of rice only up until midday, living under a tarpaulin and in the evening, ingesting the jungle plants so that she could learn their medicine and be able to help heal others. As a mother her sacrifice was that her son was without her for the first year of his life and this is what she gave up so that she could help each one of us to heal.

They are the last known bloodline of the Incas and around 2,000 people still live up in the distant village at 15, 000 feet above sea level. There are many circumstances arising which challenge this vibrant culture passing on their heritage to future generations. We are honoured to be working in partnership with Reviveolution (http://reviveolution.net/reviveolution/) who are striving each day to bring Andean Wisdom into practice in the modern life and share the time honoured practices of this amazing Maestro.

These ceremonies, along with meditative weaving serves as a powerful catalyst for the healing traditions of the Q’ero.

It is through challenge and hardship that the gems of this Spiritual lineage like Juan Gabrielle has been able to spread their wings across the world for the benefit of all and now it s time for him to help you fly through your journey with greater ease and clarity.
