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.

(Retreats and Full Moon ceremonies)
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:

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.

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.

(Retreats, ceremonies and dietas)
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.
Jamie & Trampas
(Retreats and Ceremonies)
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.
Musician, sound therapist, sound researcher and harmonic musical instruments builder. During the last 10 years he has dedicated himself to exploring other uses of sound, leaving aesthetic criteria aside to set the intention on self-knowledge, healing and the expansion of consciousness.
Through the use of instruments such as gongs, Tibetan and quartz bowls, didgeridoo, handpan, harmonium and voice among others, he carries out sound sessions where you can reach a deep state of meditation that allows us to access numerous benefits through physical, mental and emotional level.
My first encounter with breath medicine was in 2015 and with it I began a liberation journey. In 2019 I began to study this technique, sharing it with groups, always surprising me with its magic and power. Circular, conscious breathing is a tool that we always have available and opens us up to be present at every moment.
