Healing Through Consciousness
Welcome to The Way Inn
The Way Inn is an Ayahuasca-based healing and research centre located high in in the Peruvian mountains, offering ten-day retreats and longer stays. It was founded in 2011 by Alex Good, an Englishman with nine years of experience working and studying with the master plants Ayahuasca and San Pedro in Peru. 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.
2015 at The Way Inn.
2015 will be a year of growth at The Way Inn. Whilst Ayahuasca will remain the core of the healing work, dedicated retreats built around San Pedro – the ‘planta maestra’ of the Andean mountain shamans – will be offered. Furthermore, we will expand our research activities into the integration of shamanic teacher-healer plants into wider healing practices, including the treatment of conditions which plight Western societies such as cancer and various additions. It promises to be an exciting year.
What Sets Us Apart?
No other Ayahuasca retreat centre in Peru offers comparable setting. Nestled at 3700 metres on a sparsely-populated plateau below the stunning, snow-capped peaks of the Cordillera Blanca mountain range, The Way Inn boasts of beautifully tranquil mountain scenery – visible from anywhere on the property. Breathe crisp, pure mountain air and drink pure glacial mountain spring water to help facilitate your healing process. You will find the lighter and more crystalline energy of the mountains to be an ideal setting for your transformative Ayahuasca journey – in stark contrast to the jungle with its humidity, insects the more intense energy born of the dense vegetation and plethora of wildlife.
At The Way Inn, you will experience a level of accommodation above any other Ayahuasca retreat centre, especially those in the jungle. We offer a luxurious boutique level of comfort with orthopedic mattresses, down duvets/comforters, cotton sheets, limitless hot water, and pure glacial spring water straight out of the tap, so you can focus solely on your personal work during your stay. Wood-fire stoves are also available in several of the room accommodations. We have a full, local Quechua kitchen and hospitality staff, headed up by our micro-biotic nutritionist, preparing delicious two and three-course meals with daily produce from our own organic gardens.
Our Healing Methodology.
Most people come from North America, Europe and other Westernised countries to Peru seeking a pure, ‘authentic’ shamanic experience with Ayahuasca. But we at The Way Inn believe that working with Ayahuasca in a purely indigenous setting can limit a Westerner’s access to the full healing potential of the Medicine. Working with native shamans, we focus on orientating the experience so that is as more accessible to Occidental mind. We also incorporate modalities and techniques which support the Ayahuasca work, to maximise our guests growth and healing during their stay
