We are a growing community that believes in the transformational power of plant medicine in a responsible and caring way.
We started in 2000, holding retreats and ayahuasca ceremonies with Milagros and Diego (March 1967-October 2019), and have grown ever since. We have been holding ceremonies in different parts of the world and in Pisaq on a weekly basis Mondays, Fridays and Full Moon.
We provide a safe and sacred space for you to explore ayahuasca. In the retreats, we have incorporated new ceremonies that help facilitate and encourage self transformation. From the cleansing power of Kámbo, the gentle guidance of Huachuma, the meditative breathwork, along with the centering power of Rapé
Diego Palma (1967-2019), who set the basic principles of our work, was known by his sharp and clear ideas and for always looking for the truth. Ayahuasca and music were two of the most important aspects of his life. He wrote several articles you can read in the web site and created a vast compilation of medicine songs from different part of the world and traditions.
Along with his family, he started a simple yet loving community at La Pacha. In 2016 he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma and passed in October 2019 sorounded by friends and family. His imprint will always stay with us.

your vibe attracts your tribe
I am cofounder of SacredValleyTribe and La Pacha community, i have been drinking plant medicine since the year 2000. I have guided and taken part in countless ceremonies and retreats. Today i manage activities at SVT, i am mother of two amazing kids/teachers/and fellow travelers, and was Diego Palma’s wife for 20 years before he passed in October 2019. I am convinced that the most powerful teachings are the simplest and try my best to hold space and pieces together. I feel in tune with my drum and my family and i believe teachings can be firm and gentle at the same time. I live and love La Pacha community and feel blessed to share this space and medicine with these beautiful souls:
Jean & Selin
Jean was born in France. He has been experiencing medicinal plants since he was 25. His first experience was with Iboga in Gabon (Africa) where he lived 5 years. After that he moved to Mexico where he started experiencing with Peyote in Wirikuta, the desert of San Luis Potosi, and with mushrooms in Huautla. After spending 20 years in Mexico, he met mother Ayahuasca. He felt the call to work with her and moved to Peru where he is living now for 12 years.
For the last 8 years Jean has been leading Ayahuasca ceremonies and retreats.
Selin is from Turkey. She moved to Peru 10 years ago and started to experience medicine plants with different masters.
She met Jean 6 years ago and started to work with him.
They now work together as a team.
Selin is also a musician and singer.
Jean is also a multi instrumentalist musician and songwriter.He plays african harps,flutes,drums,and build his own instruments.
Several years ago this multi-instrumentalist musician, originally from Chile, dedicated himself to the path of service with Mother Ayahuasca. His prayer is to create a bridge between the plant and people’s souls in order to go deeper into the infinite path of self-knowledge. He learned from different Maestros and started holding ayahuasca retreats and plant medicine retreats from the jungle in a deep pathway of healing. He moved to Peru 8 years ago where he started working with Sacred Valley Tribe and Diego and since then is a part of this family.
Letizia has been living and sharing her medicine in the Sacred Valley of Peru for almost a decade and has sat in and held over a thousand ceremonies.
After 4 years of intense and disciplined work in Venezuela alongside with colombian traditions, Letizia moved to Peru. To this day she keeps learning and going deeper in the work with plants and how to hold space for deeper work through dietas, rites of passage, and self-awareness tools.
Letizia is trained in ontological coaching from where she has useful tools to support after master plants experiences and their integration process.
With the blessing from Grandmother Mallinali from the Moon Dance tradition, she has received the blessing to hold Sweat Lodge ceremonies
A talented musician she offers ancestral sound healing and songs as part of all her offerings.

Jamie and Trampas hold a space for deep work supported by pure love. They met in an Ayahuasca Ceremony and were married in ceremony at the Maha Templo by Diego in early 2019. Both were inspired to play guitar after experiencing the Medicine and is their joy to hold ceremonies honoring Diego’s way, keeping his words and songs alive. Originally from the States, they recently moved to La Pacha community.
