A Warm Welcome to our Holistic Centre
Our mission is to help you awaken to the truth of your being. Combining sacred medicine with ancient wisdom and modern progressive psychology, we support you through your Ayahuasca experience and help you connect to your own intuitive healer.
Our Team looks forward to meeting you!
Healing Through Consciousness
In shamanism, all dis-ease arises from conflict between the shadow and conscious self creating imbalance and blockages in the psyche. Ayahuasca and other plant medicines bring the shadow to the surface, where it can be examined and integrated consciously.
Our holistic approach helps you heal and learn to heal yourself. Between Ayahuasca ceremonies, the 10-day retreat includes psychological, shamanic and nutritional consultations, organ cleanses and personalised diet, breathing tuition, meditation, Qi Gong and Yoga.
Not A Recreational Experience
Growth means moving beyond your comfort zone, and this experience is inherently uncomfortable. Ayahuasca sets a challenging pace for our growth as we undo entrenched patterns, and one needs to be ready to personally engage in the healing process. We can promise only one thing: It won’t be easy, it will be worth it.
More than Just an Ayahuasca Retreat
Understanding, integrating and living the deep personal truths uncovered when drinking ayahuasca is where the real work is done, so we have designed a 10-day programme that both empowers your healing and equips you with tools to sustain it.
Working with Sacred Medicinal Plants
We work closely with ayahuasca and other plant medicines, such as San Pedro. We also provide cleansing through tobacco and other plant ‘teas’. At The Way Inn we endeavour to work with you to tailor your process to your individual needs.
Set and Setting
A loving, supportive and experienced staff, highly nutritious diet, fresh air and limitless hot and cold spring water, comfortable accommodation, stunning views and a tranquil setting perfectly nurture your healing journey.

Helping Raise CONSCIOUSNESS one SOUL at a time.
The Way Inn is an Ayahuasca-based holistic healing and research centre located high in the Peruvian Andes, offering ten-day retreats, Shamanic Dietas, Organ Cleanses, Work Exchanges, and Apprenticeships. It was founded in 2002 by Alex Good, an Englishman with nine years of experience working and studying with the master plants Ayahuasca and San Pedro in Peru.
The mission of The WAY Inn Centre is to embody sane, holistic, healthy, sustainable modes of life, in search of balance and harmony within individuals, between individuals, and between communities and their environment.
Your Donations go to the Peruvian community and further development of The WAY Inn Holistic Centre.
The vision of The WAY Inn is a network of thriving, spiritually conscious communities that embody ecologically and socially harmonious ways of life.
With a highly experienced healing team comprised of both native Peruvian Shamans and western practitioners, the centre’s primary purpose is to deliver the profound healing potential of South American Shamanism in a way that is accessible to those who arguably need it most – people from so-called ‘developed’ Western societies.

The WAY Inn Monthly Announcements!
We are Proud to Announce:
We are very, very excited to inform all Past, Present, and Furture Guests that the San Pedro (Huachuma) portion of our 10-Day Ayahuasca Retreat has returned.
San Pedro is a wonderful heart opening sacred medicine, that can connect you deeper with the planet and fellow human beings.
Safe Travel to the Amazon Jungle
Though The WAY Inn is located in the Andean Mountains we wish to extent some helpful advice to those who are still in the research stage of choosing a retreat centre:
Without getting into a lot of the details and as to not promote fear, there have been some instances lately of tourist being robbed at gunpoint by pirates on the way to retreat centers in the jungle.
Advice for travelers on the rivers of the Amazon, only take; the bare essentials, leave everything else, including passport (keep a Photocopy on you for identification purposes) leave any or all photos you’ve taken back to the hotel/hostel, minimum cash, as you won’t need your credit cards at the retreat centres.
Please use best judgment and do your due diligence before undertaking your beautiful Ayahuasca journey.
