Special Group Services

Andean Ceremonies

Willka T’ika maintains longstanding relationships with a select group of authentic Andean healers.

During our fully inclusive Willka T’ika retreat programs, traditional ritual specialists from the remote Q’ero region of the Andes are available to share the sacred rituals and ceremonies they have performed in their own communities for centuries. Private healing sessions are also available if you are not with a group—just be sure to coordinate with us in advance.

Offerings to Pachamama (Mother Earth)
A traditional Andean despacho or offering is created by an authentic Q’ero to honor the Andean mountain deities or apukuna, followed by a traditional fire ceremony.

Coca Leaf Reading
A highly experienced traditional Andean healer conducts individual consultations and healing treatments using the sacred coca leaf.

Excursions

Willka T’ika offers exclusive private tours of local cultural sites as well as nature-based outings customized for your group. Centrally located in the Sacred Valley, Willka T’ika is within 45 minutes of all the principal Incan archeological sites and temples. Within walking distance, you can visit the pre-Incan salt mines of Maras and enjoy a variety of spectacular hikes. 

Andean Musicians

Highly accomplished, traditional Andean musicians offer an evening of musical and theatrical celebration. Enjoy listening to the melodic sounds from Incan times, and feel free to get up and dance to the lively music!

Art Workshops

Create a unique piece of Andean art with our in-house Quechua artist, whose internationally- collected work adorns the Willka T’ika grounds. Or, choose to take a ceramics class at a local studio, just a 5-minute walk from Willka T’ika.

Herbal Medicinal Workshops

A knowledgeable local Quechua staff member, who has grown up with the native medicinal plants, conducts this journey through Willka T’ika’s Healing Gardens to share the traditional uses of numerous Incan medicinal herbs. These herbs are still being used for healing by local traditional Quechua.

 

PachaDanza to Energize your Chakras

A spiritually attuned professional dancer from Cusco leads you or your group on a wonderful dance through each Chakra Garden. This fun and uplifting program assists with the release of unwanted energies.
