"A single moment in the heart is enough to know where you want to direct your energy for the rest of your life" --"The Four Altars", Alonso Del Río

Welcome to Ayahuasca Ayllu
Ayahuasca Ayllu is a Center for Healing and Consciousness Studies located in the Sacred Valley of Cusco, Peru. Through the ceremonial use of sacred plants, the study of ancestral knowledge and modern research methods, we seek to put in the hands of many people one of the most powerful tools that humanity has known to accelerate the process of consciousness expansion.
In these times, we believe it is essential to reinterpret the role of master plants, returning them to the luminous and sacred place they occupied in almost all ancient societies, not only as generators of divinity but also as creators of culture. We want to highlight their healing power, not just as medicine but as a tool for the expansion of consciousness, which is what brings true healing at all levels.
Ayahuasca Ayllu was founded by Alonso Del Río in 1998 after training for 30 years in the Shipibo tradition, and after having deepenedhis study of ancient cultures from all continents. His work, exposed in the book "The Four Altars", is a powerful synergy between the understanding of universal symbols of ancient cultures and the ceremonial use of sacred plants, with the aim of helping modern societies to reconnect with the natural order.
We believe that the expansion of consciousness that sacred plants can produce should be reflected in the love and care of the Mother Earth
Ayahuasca Ayllu receives people from all over the world who come to know traditional medicine in order to learn about the proper use of sacred plants. People across the world are recognizing the concrete benefits that ayahuasca brings for health and the development of consciousness. This state of expanded consciousness (granted by master plants) allows you to perceive the true order of nature and reconnect with your true self allowing for emotional and physical self-healing. We believe that the expansion of consciousness that sacred plants can produce should be reflected in the love and care of Mother Earth, helping many more people to become aware of this relationship. In these times it is impossible to think about spirituality or consciousness without thinking about ecology.
This is why at Ayahuasca Ayllu, we aspire to have a true relationship of respect with nature (Pachamama) not only because of an ideological concept (ecologist), but fundamentally because of a feeling of love for our Mother Earth that we try to express in the way we live, which people who come for retreats and dietas can fully experience.
