Ayahuasca Retreat Pisac Peru Preparation.png


We understand the importance of preparation, and we are with you from the first moment you express interest in signing up for our Ayahuasca Healing & Evolution Retreats. Firstly, if you have any questions before signing up for a retreat with us, we invite you to schedule a no-obligation free consultation. Secondly, once you sign up for your retreat, you will complete an in-depth Pre-Retreat Health and Wellness Screening Questionnaire. This completed questionnaire allows us to assess if ayahuasca and the additional plant medicine treatments we provide will be beneficial and safe for you to partake in.


Before being accepted to our retreats, you will receive a private, online Pre-Retreat Preparation Session. We also provide you with an audio-recorded Pre-Retreat Meditation, an online Retreat Group Orientation Meeting, and comprehensive preparation content including medical guidelines, dietary guidelines, a complete packing guide, FAQ and preparation advice.

You will also be invited to join us on a private Signal app group, in order to connect and communicate with other participants on your retreat prior to arriving at Casa Galactica in Pisac, Peru. Within this encrypted Signal messaging group, we will answer questions as they arise from the group and share information as requested.

Once you arrive at the retreat, you will experience a Retreat Orientation Talk and a Ceremony Preparation Talk, to help you better understand what to expect during your retreat and ayahuasca ceremonies.


The purpose of this comprehensive Preparation Package is to ensure that your preparation for, and travel to, your retreat with us at Casa Galactica is as clear and easy to understand as possible.

You will also receive access to two pre-recorded workshops from Michael´s Healing & Evolution Online Workshop Series, with over 7 hours of channeling, guidance, and multi-dimensional healing on the topics of Healing Evolution and the Fundamentals of Healing Trauma.  Both pre-recorded workshops will provide you with a powerful foundation for our Ayahuasca Healing Evolution Retreats.

During your retreat, you will participate in 4 unique ayahuasca ceremonies held by us, Michael and Jamie Thornhill. We are trained in the Noya Rao path of curanderismo with over 10 years of combined experience in holding safe, integrous spaces for you to experience, learn, heal, and grow. Noya Rao is a stunning and magnificently bioluminescent tree that grows in the Peruvian Amazon, and the radiance of her unconditional love, guidance, wisdom, and medicine is at the heart and helm of our work, expressing itself throughout every ayahuasca ceremony. Our main work in ceremony is done multi-dimensionally with icaros (healing songs) and sound, to create and hold a safe space for you to heal and evolve.


We are also professional intuitive mediums and channels, with over 18 years of combined experience of adeptly and conscientiously connecting and communicating with Spirit to bring through messages, guidance, wisdom and insights in service to your highest good.


This complementary combination of our training in the Noya Rao path of curanderismo and our professional standards of practice as channels is the foundation of our ayahuasca ceremonies. Into this firm foundation, we infuse our own personal styles of medicine which are comprised of non-dual awareness, sound healing, trauma-informed care practices, Shipibo icaros, plant spirit guidance, multi-dimensional therapies, the Grace of God, eastern philosophies, oneness practices, and the wellspring of infinite love at the absolute heart of us all.

The healing and enlightenment that can occur in an ayahuasca ceremony is often expedient, profound, and life-transformative. The awareness and growth experienced in a single ayahausca ceremony can sometimes feel equivalent to understandings gained from 20 years of psychotherapy or 20 years of meditation practice. Ayahuasca is a powerful medicine that can bring deep levels of trauma to the surface to be seen, felt, loved, and healed.  A single ayahuasca ceremony can burn through long-held limiting beliefs in an instant and can provide you with a direct experience of Oneness, God, the Universe, your Higher Self, or even Unconditional Love.


During each and every ayahuasca ceremony, it is our concentrated, wholehearted intention to be in absolute service to your highest healing, good, and purpose, from start, to finish, to post-ceremony. Accordingly, we are available at all times before, during, and after each ayahuasca ceremony to help you through whatever experiences may arise for you. We are also available 24/7 onsite during your retreat to process with you or assist you in any way that is necessary.

We do not work with smoke of any kind in the ceremony space, so you can rest assured you will have a smoke-free environment. When appropriate or needed, we sometimes work with natural, alcohol free plant spays that are safe, clean and effective in ceremony.

We are here to help you transform your life in the most profound way possible. Our dynamic way of holding our ayahuasca retreats means that no two retreats will be the same.

Learning in a small and intimate environment means you will receive in-depth one-on-one care, attention, support and teachings from us every step of the way. We are dedicated to helping you remember that you are empowered to live the life you prefer. We want to help you heal trauma at the root cause and remove the obstacles standing in the way of a life filled with peace, joy, love and happiness.

You will participate in 4 guided meditations before each ayahuasca ceremony to help you ground, connect with the earth, relax your nervous system, and connect to your own inner truth . These guided meditations can help you realize your own spiritual sovereignty, gain direct awareness of your oneness, embody your higher self, and connect with your spirit team. These channeled meditations help co-create an optimal energetic foundation as we enter into the ayahuasca ceremony, and they provide useful tools to assist you in navigating the multi-dimensional realms. They are fundamental for work in ceremony, yet also provide powerful transformation when practiced each day.
