In this post, you’ll find a selection of Huachuma aka San Pedro cactus retreat and ceremony facilitators in Colombia, South America.
The San Pedro cactus, also called Huachuma or Wachuma, is a native, psychedelic cactus species from the South American Andes Mountains used in local indigenous traditional medicine and spiritual practices, and applied to heal or alleviate a variety of physical, mental, and spiritual health issues.
The active, psychedelic substance of the San Pedro cactus is derived from the green flesh of the plant, and typically ingested as a dried powder, as a brew made by boiling parts of the cactus, as a drink blended with fruit juice, or even eaten raw. Preparations for the actual ceremony often include fasting, cleansing, and purifying practices in the days before.
There are a number of Ayahuasca retreats in Colombia that also offer San Pedro cactus ceremonies as an additional traditional healing modality to enforce, enlighten, and balance out the Ayahuasca experience, but San Pedro retreats and ceremonies are also carried out on their own, without the context of Ayahuasca.
Below then an overview of the San Pedro retreat centers and facilitators we’ve located in Colombia.
