★★★★★ - Small groups are key. Wonderful place
I had been working with shamans to purify and strengthen my body, mind and soul for five years when I discovered Kali Wasi. Things were going well. But they brought my work deeper and helped me to improve it. Tatiana and Tom, the Kali Wasi facilitators, have made something really very special there in the Taray neighborhood of Pisac, near Cusco, Peru. What first attracted me to their retreats specifically was that they insisted on only small groups. Maximum 8 participants, they told me. At my retreat, we were only 5. With the two of them plus two other shamans through the course of our 10 day experience, the personal attention we received was comforting, powerful and wonderful. In the course of our time together, we worked with Ayahuasca, Huachuma/San Pedro, and sacred snuff, plus a wonderful set of additional exercises including Esalen massage, acupuncture, soul retrieval, crystal work, guided and unguided meditation, visits to sacred sites and a spa experience of sauna, salt scrub and floral bath. I also chose to extend the experience by one day to be initiated into Reiki practice with Tatiana. Tom and Tatiana bring years of experience in helping people. Their sensitivity, strength and support were key ingredients to my healing and growth. But they have also put together an amazing team of shamans and other professionals, each a top expert in their field, especially Paul Diamond's expertise with Ayahuasca, qigong and acupuncture. Five months have passed since my time at Kali Wasi, and even today I am feeling tangible effects from my Retreat with them. My joy point (my happiness base line) has risen noticeably, and I find it easier to make healthy decisions in my diet and recreation habits. Of course these extended effects are due largely to my continued improved habits in these months. But Kali Wasi facilitated also this by a) sending me off on my way detoxed and feeling strong, b) giving me lots of perspective and advice how to integrate all that I had learned with them and c) continuing to support me, by email when I needed and also with long distance Reiki sessions (at extra charge) at my request. I know I will be back to work with them again some day, and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone on a spiritual or health-seeking path.

★★★★★ - Life-Changing doesn't do this retreat justice.
How does one really describe in the limited English language how incredibly life-changing my time was @Kali Wasi? From the amazing fresh food to the sacred space to the sweet souls who own this retreat there was nothing left to want for. I went in with an open mind, as this was my first time doing anything like this, and I was blown away by what I experienced. They thought of everything. I felt like I was a part of their family while I was there. They offer amazing services and the healing that happened was so beautiful. If you have ever met someone and knew right off the bat that they were good souls, that they were coming from a place of really wanting to serve, then you will find the familiarity here too. My journey there with the plant medicine was beautifully intense and exactly what I needed. I left the retreat a different person on every level. Words can not describe how thankful I am for Tati and Tom and the Kali Wasi retreat. I love the work they are doing and have already recommended it to some of my friends back home. If you are feeling called to do something like this, then I would highly recommend you look into this retreat @Kali Wasi. With gratitude and love, Kristin

I had a life changing and first Ayahuasca ceremony at Kali Wasi with amazing Shaman Paul Diamond. It was a truly unforgettable moment that was made even more so memorable by the beautiful and loving energies of Kali Wasi's Tom and Tatiana. Their care and preparation was beautiful, so is their ceremonial space, a beautifully decorated chapel, ideal for an Ayahuasca ceremony. This moment of truth, love and resolve will always be with me.
