Ayahuasca & Internal Alchemy Retreat (Sacred Valley of Peru)


Tantraya Center invite you to join us for an 8-day Ayahuasca and Internal Alchemy retreat from August 24 - 31, 2019.

This retreat will be held at the Tantraya Center, in the Sacred Valley of Peru, and is open to both new and past participants of Paul’s work. Our group will be small to maximize individual attention for each participant. This is a chance for deep individual work, with a strong emphasis on practices designed to awaken the full potential of the medicine inside of ceremony and support the integration of all aspects of our higher selves into our daily lives.

Our work with the medicine is heavily influenced by the Tantric traditions. TAN means to expand, stretch. TRA means to liberate. AYA means the little death. So we expand and liberate through surrender and recognition, gaining realization in the after-death-like state. Before each ceremony, we do Tantric Puja, calling on allies, Gods, Goddesses, ancestors, and helpers from the plant and spirit realms to empower, heal, and liberate the spirit.

Our Shaman, Paul Diamond, is initiated into a multitude of lineages, and offers an unprecedented degree of spiritual and energetic protection, based on over 20 years training in the world’s wisdom traditions. When traveling in the inter-dimensional realms, it is necessary to have an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Safety is paramount when dealing with the unseen. Participants will experience a field of love, and a safe intimate space conducive for Kundalini awakening, deep realizations and liberation.

Throughout the retreat, we will focus on a specific set of practices taken from the Internal Energetic and Alchemical Traditions (Taoism, Tantra, Alchemy, and Shamanism) that are simple to learn yet far-reaching in their capacity to bring us to the highest levels of realization. We will be practicing these meditation exercises on a regular cycle to fully ground, activate, and energize these circuits.
