Journey of Self-Discovery and Renewal
Peyote is an entheogenic cactus, that is born in the desert of central Mexico, in a sacred place called Wirikuta. The Wirrarika people are the guardians and protectors of this plant and its knowledge. By consecrating with this beautiful medicine during ceremonies it helps you gain better health, clarity in life, to purify yourself, and to expand consciousness, vibrating in love and well-being.
Peyote Heart Retreat is a healing journey to check on your inner self. We offer a safe space in the heart of nature to open up and scan your deep unconscious programming to see what you carry and allow yourself to decide what you choose to keep and let go of what no longer serves your divine purpose.
We will provide a pathway for you to learn different self-awareness tools to take with you after this beautiful experience that will help you in your integration process. During these 7 days, you will seek to understand and work with Peyote to help you to reconnect and rediscover your true nature from the ancient wisdom and knowledge of this plant and with the guide of Maracame Modesto. Engage in ancient traditions guided by indigenous elders, offering deep spiritual insights, emotional healing, and personal growth. Release stress, gain clarity, and embark on a path of self-discovery in a safe and sacred space.

Your Retreat, Your Renewal
Unplug from the demands of everyday life and immerse yourself in tranquility. Our exclusive retreat offers serene accommodations, delicious nourishing meals, and opportunities to explore the rainforest’s beauty, ensuring a complete wellness experience.
The ceremony lasts all night. The Marakame plays his sacred songs 5 times during during the ceremony. While he plays these songs, everyone is asked to return to their places and be silent listening to the song; since this moment can bring visions and it is possible for the person to enter into greater introspection. In general, during the ceremony it is preferable to remain silent and still, this benefits the work of medicine and gives strength to your prayer.
Each participant will have a candle that represents the light of our hearts it will be places in front of you with your special individual altar which you will create with your own spiritual objects.
Songs and prayers can be offered during the ceremony; the Marakame will let us know when the right time is to share our songs. The prayers can be done silent, but it is recommended to do it out loud; since it gives more power to the prayer, and at the same time this can help other people in their healing process.
Each one will keep their candle. To continue with the integration process in the next days you will turn on your candle for the next 5 nights, at dusk and off at dawn. Place it in a safe space in the room where you sleep, and during the day you turn it off by saving the light ( we will show you how to turn it off properly). If there is still wax left on the fifth day, let it burn until it finishes. This process helps to continue with the work trough dreams. During these days it is recommended to stay in a state of simplicity and awareness and to pay close attention to your dreams.

A local medicine woman from the Caribbean Coast in Costa Rica, She started her healing path at the age of 16 when she had a shift through improving her diet and deepening her connection with mother nature, with the help of the traditional sweat lodge ceremonies and with the guided peyote ceremonies. Both have been great tools to soften her heart, forgive, heal and recharge with the light she’s needed to fulfill and reconnect with her divine purpose in life.
For the last 25 years, we have hosted transformational retreats for those who seek purpose, are looking to heal, find answers or simply disconnect and destress.
We only work with highly experienced and well-trained guides who hail from a long lineage of the shaman, who will help prepare you and ensure a safe and effective experience. We also have a medical center with fully qualified doctors close by.
The effect of the serene and secluded Rainforest on healing cannot be overstated. Modern science has proven nature to be a powerful healer that quiets your mind and enhances your sense of wellbeing and opens your heart.
This environment is ideal for healing because it provides a tranquil sanctuary for self-reflection, meditation, and mindfulness while preparing and after the ceremony.
Your safety is our top priority. You will undergo a strict screening process that will determine if you are the right candidate for this ceremony. The intensity of the journey is not for everyone, and it takes an experienced guide to determine who can safely go through the ceremony.
