Luxury Ayahuasca & San Pedro Psychedelic Retreat in Peru

We specialise in helping people with a Western mindset make transformational change. For the quality of our ceremonies and the outcomes we achieve please see our reviews.

Of all the decisions we make in life, choosing one of personal development, investing in oneself, is the most rewarding decision we can make. When our path takes us to question our purpose and ourselves we are beginning the most fantastic journey possible. Developing oneself is searching for what we are and it is without doubt the most fulfilling thing in life we can do.  

Ayahuasca and San Pedro are psychedelic plant medicines that help with the understanding of self, as all the great gurus and sages throughout the ages have said, “Know Thyself”, just two words however just where do we begin? When we come from a Western society and a Western educational system then we are literally looking in the wrong direction.

We are programmed to look 'out' whereas to find true, real happiness we need to look within. There are many ways this can be done and here in Peru we have one, psychedelic plant medicines.

Ayahuasca & San Pedro open our minds, it's a bit like having a broadband connection to higher states, they show us the big picture that would otherwise take years of dedicated meditation to achieve. Ayahuasca can be considered more 'strategic' - an entry to the higher realms and the discovery of our reason for being. San Pedro is more 'practical', the understanding of the here and now and helping us manage our daily experiences. Together they help us appreciate the true nature of consciousness well beyond the constraints of our perceived three-dimensional reality, they help us appreciate life and what it is meant to be. Ayahuasca & San Pedro are really life-changing experiences.

Our approach is specifically designed around the Western mind and those from a Western culture. Psychedelics are healers, they uncover and release the baggage that we all carry and can especially help people with stress related issues. The plants show the way, we help people navigate their path to discover their true destiny.

We offer retreats based on one (three nights), two (six nights) and three (nine nights), of each medicine.

David Walton is the founder of Munay Medicine. He started having spiritual experiences when he was five years old and they've continued throughout his life. When in his forties he became 'one with the universe' that led him to spend 12 years attending the Buddhist Society of Manchester where he discovered the power of meditation. He experienced the bliss of Nirvana before he discovered Ayahuasca who recently showed him she has been responsible for all his experiences, all of them, that started when he was only five. 

A renowned psychic, Roger Vela Portocarrero from Moyobamba, Peru, has told David that Ayahuasca controls him and called him a maestro. David certainly knows that Ayahuasca has been in control as she directed him leave Dubai to find his true vocation in life here in Peru with Munay Medicine.

It took David until he was sixty before he realised that there is more to life that the 'West' understands. Previously he'd been a (288a) Director of a LSE listed company; he'd both won and delivered large-scale multi-disciplinary projects. However, no matter how much money he earned, however high up the ladder of success he climbed, it did not bring him real happiness. David has a fascinating life story about how he discovered the route to happiness and the true nature of realty in his book 'There Is More To Life' (see below).

David was recently interviewed by Eluxe magazine who asked what drove him to psychedelic plant medicines, it provides some insights to him and the medicines. Munay Medicine has also been featured in EcoHustler. See us also on Aya AdvisorRetreat Guru and Trip Advisor.

Below David has three videos, an introduction to Tambo del Caminante our home here in Peru, one of the meditations he provides prior to ceremonies that was produced at the request of clients and a brief explanation to what psychedelics actually do.

Ayahuasca & San Pedro are psychedelic medicines for the 'Western' mind, they have been around for thousands of years, they are not pharmaceutical drugs, they are natural remedies and natures way of helping us discover the higher realms of consciousness, they are the tools we use to help people make positive changes in their lives.

We provide a retreat to Western standards and appreciate the time pressures some can be under 'back home' and hence when needed we provide WiFi.

David introduces the home of Munay Medicine here in Peru, he explains what the psychedelic plant medicines do and for those that have been to Munay one of the meditations (that all can do) that will take them back into the beautiful energy of plant medicines.

 

 "There is More to Life", by a 21st Century Heretic - David Walton

David Walton - There is More to Life - Book

In ‘There is More to Life’ David describes his life journey from the recognition that a highly successful business career had no real meaning, to the discovery of the truth of what we really are and what the West has become.

David describes his discovery why the 'Western Paradigm' of materialism did not bring him happiness. However far up the corporate ladder he climbed, however senior he became or however much money he earned, true happiness remained elusive. This is David’s journey of discovery, the ups, the downs and some really deep downs there have been, in 2012 the separation from his wife caused such deep despair he considered suicide.

David started having spiritual experiences at the age at five but suppressed them as no one could understand what he saw. At the age of 48 they started again and over the following 16 years he was shown things the ‘West’ just doesn’t understand. David explains how we've become pre-occupied with wealth and asset collection and how we have lost connection with what we really are, that being multi-dimensional beings with capabilities beyond our wildest imaginations. Chapter one is available here for free. Click on the cover opposite to order from Amazon.

Ayahuasca isn't easy but it should probably be mandatory life training".

Besides having potent plant medicine, Munay really provides the other crucial aspect to the retreat experience. They have excellent rooms, and fresh, wholesome food. So, whether you are just learning more about yourself, or dealing with more in depth healing, that is all that needs to be on your mind. It’s all the comforts of home (and a classy one at that) surrounded by the breathtaking mountains.....

Great experience - caring and nice people. You will be well taken care of : good clean food and insightful conversations. The rooms are very clean and well-appointed. Warm alpaca blankets are on hand for late night sessions around the fire-pit.

There had been a pull to Peru for as long as I can remember, no idea where it came from and why so strong. When David set up his retreat in Peru, it gave me the perfect excuse to travel to see my long time friend and mentor. As if by magic, a gap of three weeks appeared in my otherwise full life, I booked my tickets and decided to take my middle son (20) with me. Peru was to be a journey of self d.....

If you are looking for a friendly professional retreat center then look no further, Munay is the place for Love :) I had already been to Iquitos last year and I wanted to go to a center where I can drink medicine and do little bit sightseeing around Scared Valley Cusco area.

Great vacation, awesome location, David, Tracy, and Ken we're very helpful and supportive throughout the process. The room were very nice, the food was good, I would most definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quality over all else.

Among the shadows of the Andean peaks that create the mystical sacred valley lies a magical oasis. Munay medicine is more than a retreat center, it is a sanctuary that embraces its visitors with love and benevolence. It is a place designed for healing, renewing, and rebirth. David and his attentive team, Tracie and Ken, immerse this magical setting with the beauty of their loving and gentle spirit.....

I have attended 7 other Sacred Medicine Retreats both in the Jungle and in the Andes. While they all had their good points I was very impressed with Munay Medicine. They have their very own Wachuma cook, who really knows his stuff, making much better Wachuma then you get in the markets. The owner and facilitator, David and Tracie, respectively, are relaxed with no agendas other than to assist you .....

Hidden down a dirt road in a small town, past strawberry fields lies a hidden oasis. Safely tucked in behind high walls you will find David, Tracy, Ken & Tao lovingly caring for their guests as they usher them through their personal journeys with the various plant medicines offered. They each bring their unique personality and life experience to Munay Medicine which blend together so harmoniously .....

Truly one of the best times of my life, from beginning to end. When first being picked up from the airport, David made us feel as if we have known him for years. NO awkwardness at all and David is quite funny. Medicine workers Ken and Tracy are wizards when it comes to their medicine and go above and beyond to make sure you are absolutely informed and comfortable with what you are going to take. T.....

All of this is just the beginning of a.....

Walking through the gates to Munay Medicine you are greeted not only as a guest, but as a member of the family. David, Ken and Tracie are extremely grounded and knowledgeable individuals, and I found comfort in talking to them about anything from theoretical physics all the way to alien conspiracy theories. The rooms, grounds and surrounding walking trails are extremely comfortable and beautiful a.....

I came to Munay for a 10 day retreat to get away from the everyday noise that is London. Somewhere I have lived my whole life. I had been drawn to 'ayahuasca' for about a year or so prior to finding Munay Medicine and being 29 (about to turn 30) this felt like the right place at the right time to get the answers I was looking for. I feel like I got exactly what I needed and can't wait to see how m.....

Plenty of retreats around. Each has good points, weak points. But if you have a real need, a real challenge of life, a real illness or problem to work on, something you cannot overcome on your own, something that has drained and devastated you, perhaps for years and decades, then please consider David. His spiritual status, his humor, his deep desire to help each individual with his full, undivide.....

A few months ago me and my boyfriend travelled South America. At the end of our trip, we looked for a place to have our first San Pedro experience before heading back home. We looked around and talked to a few people in the sacred valley, since it was our first time and we wanted everything to feel good. David and his people welcomed us with such a warm heart that we immediatly felt safe. It didnt.....

The most fantastic time had by all, Munay Medicine retreat and all the people involved David, Ken and Tracy have given a life changing experience with the plant medicines and meditation.

Munay medicine is nesteled in the Sacred Valley close to the river that leads the way to Macchu Picchu. The powerful mountains around connects you to a point inside that you cannot help but feel peace. I have spent 5 unforgettable days in this place, where besides the utmost comfort of the home feel I was treated with soo much warmth from Tracy, David and Ken. Now I believe I found new friends tha.....

My journey continues on but now I'm whole again. My special thanks go to the guys, David, Tracey and Ken at Munay retreat for the love, care .....

I took part in a retreat at Munay Medicine back in August. It was one of the best things I have ever done. Firstly, the location is stunning. I love the Sacred Valley and David's retreat centre is about 500m down a dirt road from one of its small towns. He provides very comfortable and clean accommodation inside a rock walled space which I believe to be ideal for retreat. Looking out from this lov.....

My very first medicine retreat ever. I heard a calling to go to Peru for what I was looking for. First search webpage was Munay Medicine. It looked and felt perfect. The very next day I made a deposit for December 2016. Nope, I had no idea what just happened but knew Gaia wanted me there. To be honest I knew I had a lot to work through and indeed I did. A short overview; there were a lot of laughi.....

The location of Munay Medicine is magical and sacred and the energy is of a high vibration. I can't thank David, Tracie, Ken, Paradise, and Marina enough for how they helped me and my husband.

After this retreat, not only did we release a lot of emotional baggage, we returned home stronger, more e.....

I was looking for a retreat that wasn't a place for 18 year old Spring Breakers trying to get 'high' on the latest fad, and instead was a place for those seeking to understand more about themselves, consciousness and the greater world around them. Munay Medicine is that place. You couldn't ask for more welcoming hosts. David, Tracey and Ken are excellent guides; they are incredibly knowledgeable o.....

For many years, I'm stuck in a situation of "dark night of the soul" after a period of spiritual awakening and was on a journey to seek answers. I was guided to go to Munay Medicine via intuition and I'm glad that I chosen this place. Being an energy sensitive person, you can feel the energy, this place is peaceful, highly charge and I don't really feel like stepping out into anywhere else. I was .....

I went to Munay for a couple reasons. I won't go into detail here but I was a frustrated, often depressed and very lost 30 something year old. Physically and spiritually. A friend recommended it as an alternative to traditional therapy and medicine so I went without much planning or information on plant medicines. What an experience they offer. David and his team are fantastic. They're skilled, .....

I attended Munay Medicine in July 2017, and it's an experience I'll never forget. The tambo is beautifully designed, exceptionally comfortable and surrounded by breathtaking scenery. I have some familiarity with plant medicines, and can attest to the quality of the Ayahuasca, and particularly the Huachuma, which is prepared on-site with a lot of care and respect. I had some of my strongest and mos.....

I initially intended to come here for a ten day retreat. As soon as I entered the gate, I was greeted by two beautiful women and gleefully pounced on by what seemed to be a character from the Muppets - Mutley, the dog - and felt immediately welcome. Spending time with David, the owner, I learned so much about the nature of consciousness and what really matters in the world. Our discussions, video .....

From the moment I arrived at Munay Medicine I could feel the frequency all around me - It was then that I knew I was at a very special place.

Munay Medicine gave me the wings to fly by c.....
