REWILD & REMEMBER
This 10 Day Rewild Retreat comes to you from the depth of our heart and soul.
A container carrying the intention to bring you home to yourself in a way that has yet to be experienced.
To REWILD, means to return home to the wild woman within. #satnam
The wild woman is YOU, standing unwavering in the authentic expression of who you are, following the flow of each and every moment without fear.
The world is inviting us women to remember the power we carry in co-creating peace and harmony in the world.
Our healing as women, is the healing of the world.
There are layers to be shed; a process of unlearning, and then remembering.
This sacred space is designed to accelerate that process.
Held in the arms of sacred sisterhood, we invite you to unfold, and DANCE with us here in the Sacred Valley, Cusco (Pisac), Peru.

"My experience working with Sam has been invaluable. I have gained access to the inner guidance and wisdom that lives within my being through our guided meditation practises along with our deep exploration, dissection, and transformation of my minds habits and patterns. Through the framework of one on one personalized sessions, I have been able invite deeper levels of self compassion into my life, while I discover the infinite power of my light, embrace my vulnerabilities, and take full self-responsibility over consciously creating my desired reality, and life experience.Sam has been a mirror for me. Never telling me what I “should” do, but simply reflecting what she hears and bringing my awareness to what I am not seeing. and calling into my life."
"I have always connected with the way Sydney teaches, giving everything from her heart to her classes, integrating her essence, staying true to herself and helping us connect in a deeper level with ourselves, so needed for this time in history. It definitely prepared me for this season ahead. So grateful to have you in this world Sydney."

About the retreat center: Carol Cumes founder of Willka T’ika in 1994, writes: “I first visited the Sacred Valley in the ’80s and was so captivated by the powerful healing energy that I continued to return year after year. In 1994, I decided to purchase a barren strip of land where Willka T’ika now stands. As a longtime yoga practitioner, I wanted to create a retreat center synergizing Andean culture and cosmology with yoga philosophy and lifestyle. Over the next two decades, I cultivated long term relationships with authentic native healers and knowledgeable local guides.

"Working with Sam has been one of the greatest investments I’ve made in myself. After doing several plant medicine journeys, her integration sessions were essential to my continued healing in order to fully metabolize all of my experiences and turn them into embodied wisdom. After that, our work together didn’t stop. I continue to meet with Sam on a weekly basis and it has become a crucial aspect of my self care. She is basically the best friend, sister, coach and conscious therapist I didn’t know I needed!!! She is deeply intuitive, caring and integrated in the wisdom she holds around the mind. Her loving energy allows me to open up and truly be seen in all that I am. I am deeply grateful for Sam and her service to the world and I highly recommend working with her!"
WHAT IS CACAO?
Cacao is a sacred (non-psychedelic) plant that has been worshiped and used across the America’s for many generations. It has been used in ceremony to help heal the heart center. It is a medicine of the heart that helps to rebalance every level of our being and the energies within our system. It works on a physical level, emotional level, and spiritual level! Our cacao ceremonial will weave the drinking of ceremonial cacao, along with meditation, sound bath, and dance!
WHAT IS A DESPACHO?
A despacho is a ritual offering common here in the Sacred Valley. It is used to create an exchange of gratitude between human beings and the natural world. It is an ancient ceremony of prayer in the Q'ero lineage, from the Andes of Peru. A combination of plant, animal, mineral, and human made products are used in this prayer offering, each element represents something specific and carries a prayer of its own. As the elements are added, the despacho becomes a living prayer that brings energy shifts and healing. Traditionally, the offering is either burned or buried to promote the lifestyle of Ayni (sacred reciprocity).Our dear local sister, Roxanna who is studying to be a Q'ero, will open and close our retreat with a guided despacho offering for our group.
WHAT IS PLANT MEDICINE?
Natural plants that come from nature. NOT synthetic man-made drugs. These plants have psychedelic properties that take their imbibers on transformational inner journeys of self-reflection and profound consciousness expansion that can change their lives in highly positive ways.
WHAT IS HUACHUMA?
Huachuma is the Quechua word for the Andean plant commonly known as San Pedro cactus. Learn about its ancient and modern uses as a psychedelic natural medicine. Native to the Andean mountain range of South America, huachuma (Echinopsis pachanoi) is also known as San Pedro (Saint Peter) because it is said to be the key that opens the gates of heaven. With its potential to catalyze deep healing at many levels, both for individuals and societies, it is a “teacher plant” that has much to offer those looking for a profound entheogenic experience. Because it is a bit gentler than many of the other plant teachers, huachuma has earned the nickname “The Grandfather” around the medicine community. It is a form of Mescaline. Mescaline itself is nontoxic. This is a master plant that can open the heart and lead to profound insights, healing, and transformation. If you have any specific questions -- please ask us anything!
WHAT IS A SWEAT LODGE?
A sweat lodge is a low profile hut, typically dome-shaped or oblong, and made with natural materials. The structure is the lodge, and the ceremony performed within the structure may be called by some cultures a purification ceremony or simply a sweat.
Sweat lodge ceremonies are about more than just sweating — they’re purification rituals used for a broad range of purposes, depending on the culture and the occasion. Most sweat lodge ceremonies practiced today are associated with Native American cultures, or with Mexican roots, who use these ceremonies to give thanks, to heal, to seek wisdom, and to purify the mind, body, and soul.
Native American sweat ceremonies typically take place in domed, circular lodges, though some cultures use teepees, or even pits covered with branches or tree trunks. A fire is lit directly outside the lodge, tended by a highly trained firekeeper who heats the stones that are used to keep the lodge hot.
We will be guided by our sister Leti, who keeps the four door tradition and will hold the fiery space with both gentleness and fierceness with her prayers and songs.
WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW ANYONE?
No fear sister! you are guided here to connect and to be a vital part of a sacred puzzle our Souls create together!
This retreat is designed for FULL inclusion. To create a space where you are held by us and each other, every moment. This is a place where you can fully be you and express EVERYTHING and ANYTHING that comes up.
Coming alone could be the most courageous and transformational decision you could make for your self!
IS IT SAFE IN PERU?
Yes 100%. Both Sam and Sydney and all the other facilitators have been living in the sacred Valley and have never felt safer traveling as women. Travel is easy and we will send out detailed directions to help you navigate flights, documents, and regulations.
HOW IS TRAVEL RIGHT NOW?
Traveling is super easy. Peru is one of the easiest places to get into and leave.
HOW DO I GET THERE FROM THE AIRPORT?

THESE DATES DON'T WORK, WILL YOU DO THIS AGAIN?
of course! We actually have a waiting list for the next retreat -- so sign up below and we will let you know in the next month the dates of our next retreat!
A list of things I have been transforming in my internal and external worlds since working with Sam:
* Becoming curious about my mental and emotional experience
* Focusing within when I feel triggered by something perceived as “outside of myself” and seeing how I can change my experience by looking within and addressing my needs.
* Transforming the belief of separation through seeing the other as the self.
* Bringing this consciousness of “the other being the self” into my dream time & learning from my dreams in a whole new way.
* Being encouraged and supported to stay in my process, when I am not understanding it and wanting it to change has been profound. Having the support to stay present helps me to discover deeper layers of self compassion as I journey through myself.
* Seeing the Thought, feeling, physical patterns in Sam and her presence in my life has helped me manifest the seemingly impossible through seeing it as possible. She has help me bring myself out of my downward spiral loops and has helped me start to spiral up.
* Observing the mind, the stories and seeing how by practicing this I changing the stories of what has been told to me to what I believe for myself to be true and feel aligned
