AYNI plant medicine weekend retreats

We offer you the opportunity to enjoy a weekend by having a different experience than you have ever had, to open your heart, learn to forgive, free yourself from trauma and emotional attachment, transform your life, and enrich yourself spiritually here at Ayni Retreat Center.

A retreat here is an intimate, unforgettable, and magical journey that brings with it long-lasting personal, emotional, mental, and spiritual connection.

Here you may take the journey alone, with friends, as a couple, or with family, and visit our beautiful retreat center that has more than 500 years of history, located 40 minutes from Cuenca near the town of Paute. It is a truly transformative experience, using ancient, Andean wisdom that is more than 5000 years old, and ceremonies with sacred and medicinal plants such as Ayahuasca, Huachuma, and the sweat lodge are carried out in the safe and attentive care of our healers and staff.

Our mission is to offer our knowledge in a tranquil space close to nature so that people may rediscover their inner-equilibrium, offering the opportunity to heal and remember what it means to be truly happy.
