Dear Fellow Seeker,

What if you had an opportunity to heal your deepest blocks and expand into your highest potential while advancing your life mission in powerful ways all while building a community of conscious peers for support and collaboration?

It’s becoming clear that working with psychedelic plant medicines is proving to be one of the fastest accelerators for those on the path of transformation, providing an opportunity to engage in rapid healing, the downloading of new roadmaps, and insight into core healing work.

More people are sharing their stories publicly as the path to legalization advances. As the founding CEO of The Shift Network, I can attest that some of our most powerful and effective programs have come to me in crystal-clear ways during plant medicine ceremonies.

The good news is that, in Peru, this work is already fully legal and builds off legacies and lineages that have been operating for hundreds of years. There’s a sacred culture of working with plant medicines for healing and for vision that weaves together beautiful music, shamanic healing, and vibrational medicine to help transform body, mind, and spirit.

We believe that this Sacred Journey to Peru may well be the best investment you can make in advancing your life work and in your awakening with the goal being for you to experience profound openings, receive deep healings, and be blessed with fresh downloads that illuminate the path to a brighter future for you and your life’s work.

In partnership,
Stephen Dinan


P.S. With a deep lineage rooted in the ancient traditions of the region, Puma brings not only years of experience but also profound spiritual connection to the retreats he leads, making him the ideal guide for this journey of self-discovery and healing. Under his guidance, you’ll experience the true essence of plant medicine healing in a way that’s both authentic and deeply personal.


If you’d like to learn more about this retreat, please email Program Manager Lola Young with your questions or to set up a time to speak. You may also schedule a one-on-one information session with Lola here.



This journey is for those with a courageous heart and strong mind, who will no longer accept feeling disconnected, depressed, or full of dis-ease, but who are ready to delve into the core of their being to realize the truth of who they are with a community of fellow explorers in a magical land.

While it’s helpful if you have previous experience working with sacred plants in a ceremonial context, it’s not a requirement. All races, colors, genders, ages, and religious orientations are welcome.


This retreat is especially for you if:

  • You’ve felt called to explore sacred plant medicines in a safe, legal, and supportive context
  • You’d like to experience and integrate the power of music and sound to heal
  • You’ve had powerful experiences with psychedelics that provided a glimpse into their healing potential, and you’d like to go further
  • Certain parts of your history are holding you back, and you desire healing so you can move forward in life
  • You have a large vision for your business and want to clarify and commit to the path forward
  • You feel like you’ve reached a plateau on your growth path and are curious how plant medicines might open you to another level
  • You’re being intuitively guided to Peru

This journey is not for you if you have psychological or medical contraindications, or you’re not prepared to enter with a spirit of respect, reverence, and willingness to do the real work that’s often required for lasting results. We are requiring any applicants over 70 to have a special medical clearance to ensure that this is an appropriate next step for you.


Highlights From the Sacred Journey to Peru


More About This Journey of a Lifetime

Have you ever been on a journey that changed your life forever?

Travel is a potent portal to growth... and when you travel to one of the most powerful sacred locations on Earth, accompanied by great healers, to work with ancient traditions and life-changing plant allies, true magic is possible.

The goal of this Sacred Journey to Peru is to create a unique, life-changing initiation into traditional ways of healing with sacred plants, devotional music, Andean culture, and beautiful natural environments all within a supportive community of conscious peers.

For the first time since we began offering this type of retreat, the Sacred Journey to Peru this March will include a focus on music and sound as medicine. Experience a blend of healing melodies, modern wisdom, integration resources, and a heart-centered community…. 

… bringing you into connection with your truest Self, the ancestors, Pachamama, and the cosmos as you receive their enduring love and support allowing your heart to open to new depths and propel your life to new heights.

Using the vibration of sound through bells and instruments, Puma will help you connect with the healing energy Pachamama constantly sends us through the sounds of the elements and animals.

You’ll tap into the profound medicine and alchemizing power of your own voice…

... and be guided through ancestral icaros (magical songs) into the spirit realms where you’ll call in powerful medicine for your family and community through whistling and humming.

Anchoring these immersive experiences are sound-healing journeys and music activations for sending and receiving love and transformation to the ancestors biological, Earth, and cosmic forwards and backwards in time… 

… healing personal, intergenerational, and collective wounds and allowing the gifts of the ancestors to emerge within each of us  and our precious planet.

These experiences include powerful musical interludes and activations by the incomparable musician Tito La Rosa, facilitating journeys directly into the heartbeat of Pachamama through the primal power of percussion and other musical elements.

The Shift Network has brought together the best guides, facilitators, and healers we know for an unprecedented convergence at a pivotal moment.

According to lead faculty Puma Fredy Quispe Singona and his lineage, Earth is currently going through a shift into a new level of consciousness in which the old destructive patterns in our human story are reaching their conclusion and the new is being born.

This shift is happening through us. We’ve all endured traumas and hardships that may be perpetuating patterns that don’t serve us or the greater good. To emerge as leaders for this new era, we need to clear space for what’s to come.

It’s time to repair our history and reconnect our bodies, minds, and souls.

ThisSacred Journey to Peru is a unique opportunity to activate a new and awakened you .

As a participant, you’ll work with ancient healing practices and profound sacred plants. Ayahuasca and Huachuma have long been considered master healer plants in Peru.

In recent years, the modern world is finally catching on to what ancient healers have known for millennia, and the psychoactive effects of these plants are proving to be powerfully therapeutic in clinical settings and modern psychological research.

Ayahuasca, often referred to as Grandmother and used in nighttime ceremonies, offers a kind of “tough love.” Huachuma (or San Pedro) is called Grandfather, and offers “gentle love” medicine in the light of day.

Both plants, when approached with respect and honor, can catalyze great wisdom for us. By cultivating a deep relationship with these plants along with the healing power of ceremony you can transcend feelings of disconnection, depression, and dis-ease, and shift into an awakening of your consciousness.

In Peruvian time-honored tradition, these plants are more than mere substances. They’re living, revered entities that hold a profound intelligence about the unique pathway of healing and awakening for each individual.

Seasoned pioneers in plant medicine will guide you through your journey both in Peru and after. To ensure you receive long-lasting (and safe) positive benefits, you’ll have access to traditional healing knowledge with the support of Western medical supervision and pre- and post-integration work that addresses psychological, spiritual, and physical healing protocols.

In this once-in-a-lifetime experience, Puma, an Andean lineage holder trained in ancient ways by his grandfather from the age of six, will take you on a profound journey of evolution and healing for yourself and your mission.


In this trip of a lifetime, you will experience ancestral traditions that have been kept alive for thousands of years.
Puma Fredy Quispe Singona

It was so encouraging to watch the synchronicities of life unfold before my eyes on this journey.

Absolutely amazing!

“This is a trip of a lifetime.”

My mother and I did this retreat together, and what a beautiful, loving, transformational journey it was. We already had a close relationship, but being in Peru with Puma, his family, and the beautiful Shift team deepened it in a way that is truly impossible to describe. If anything in your heart is saying to go, listen! This is a trip of a lifetime.
Ryan, Sacred Journey to Peru, August, 2023

“I came to love and accept my ‘normal’ state of consciousness as a blessed state…”

The huachuma ceremonies were most helpful for me in working with forgiveness and healing family and ancestral trauma. The ayahuasca ceremony taught me how blessed I am with abilities of insight and knowingness without the need for plant medicines. I came to love and accept my “normal” state of consciousness as a blessed state and to not take it for granted.
Anonymous, Sacred Journey to Peru, August, 2023

“I experienced a shift in awareness and presence…”

I experienced a Shift in awareness and presence; more ease with what is, including moments when shadow is passing through. I experienced more being in the present; increased moments of simple joy catching myself and shifting to joy and gratitude.
Judah, Sacred Journey to Peru, December, 2023

I feel like I have a lifetime of downloads to process..
Anonymous, Sacred Journey to Peru, October, 2022

“It was the greatest homecoming as a remembering of our true sacred nature.”

Through the direct transmission of icaros in my second ayahuasca plant medicine ceremony, I came to know Puma, his family, and ancestors as upholders of pure love and light of the highest order. Reverence for Pachamama and all life is vital and intact through Puma’s traditional Peruvian ancestral lineage. I will work with and expand upon this experience of receiving unconditional love in the entirety of my being for the rest of my life. It was the greatest homecoming as a remembering of our true sacred nature. All healing, magic, and miracles, senses of belonging, vitality, connection, and creation come from the ultimate frequency of LOVE.
Reneigh, Canada, Sacred Journey to Peru, October, 2022

“... this journey provided a safe container…”

What People Are Saying About Puma

“[Puma] has really given me another perspective in life, in general... in a spiritual way, in a mental way.”

He has really given me another perspective in life, in general... in a spiritual way, in a mental way. My connection to Pachamama I have never been the same since then.
Anaïs Mali, model and actress


“There’s really so much to learn in Puma’s teachings.”

Puma creates a learning environment in which you can really grow. He creates a safe space in which you can be your very own best. You’re so secure that you can be free. You’re connected, and you’re engaged in choosing your own path to evolve. There’s really so much to learn in Puma’s teachings. It’s like the threads that are already woven between you and the ancestral forces, the spirits, the essences, the elements, the animals, Pachamama.
Marion Conaway


“The gifts of Puma and these teachings are beyond measure.”

I feel so blessed to be able to study with Puma. His knowledge, wisdom, presence, and loving heart continue to invite me into a deeper truth of self. I am able to love more fully, to be that love, and to be in love with all that this life is offering in ways I was not before. Through the teachings and the Mesa, I feel so supported by Pachamama, the ancestors, and all allies. I feel held in a constant field of love, beauty, cosmic intelligence, and grace, and I am deeply grateful to know how to use my Mesa to offer this back in service and support of others. The gifts of Puma and these teachings are beyond measure.
Lakita, Oregon

The following descriptions were developed by Puma and his team, who see these plant medicines primarily through a traditional healing lens. Note that it’s not required to work with these plant medicines during the trip. You’ll always have the choice and you can opt to commune directly with the healing spirits, as you’ll learn from Puma’s online program.


San Pedro (often called Huachuma) is a cactus that’s native to the Andes and known to have been used by pre-Inca civilizations for up to 4,000 years. The active component found in this medicine is mescaline, and the nature or personality of this plant is perceived by many as the masculine grandfather spirit. It’s often depicted as having the spirit of the hummingbird.

Used to help perceive our self-created barriers and limitations, this medicine greatly aids in opening and connecting with our hearts. Each ceremony is a meeting with ourselves, Mother Earth, and the Divine, serving as a medicinal mirror to help us see where we hold on to self-limiting beliefs and patterns, gently guiding us to release what no longer serves us. San Pedro ceremonies are performed with psychological preparation and physical cleansing.


Ayahuasca is an ancient visionary curative medicine that comes from the Amazon. It’s traditionally used in Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, and Brazil. Ayahuasca has two main components the Ayahuasca vine (Banisteriopsis caapi) and the chacruna leaves (Psychotria viridis). The spirit and character of Ayahuasca is divinely feminine, perceived as a woman or snake. This visionary plant medicine is often called “the purge,” as it helps us cleanse our physical, emotional, energetic, and spiritual bodies through a powerful releasing process. This medicine moves through the body, activating and awakening our sleeping energies. When these energies are activated, they’re expressed in different ways and are ultimately removed from the body. The purge process can take innumerable forms, commonly through tremors, vomiting, diarrhea, strong emotions, tears, yawns, laughter, breath, and more.

Ceremonies that involve deep physical and energetic cleaning and cleansing often precede ceremonies with deep vision and light. The journey is often difficult to understand in the moment. However, with the benefit of hindsight and integration, the deep wisdom of the plants reveals itself in time. It’s commonly understood that the medicine will give you what you need and what you want.

Ayahuasca heals the spirit deeply and also teaches us what’s necessary for us to know, guiding us where it needs to guide us and helping us understand our spiritual world. Prior to the Ayahuasca sessions, it’s extremely important to participate in preparation and stimulation sessions that help us discern what we should learn and what we should ignore.


Psychoactive Masters of the Plant Spirit Kingdom


If you’d like to learn more about this retreat, please email Program Manager Lola Young with your questions or to set up a time to speak. You may also schedule a one-on-one information session with Lola here.



Machu Picchu is a citadel built on top of the mountains right above the Willka Mayu or Willka Nota River, where the altar of Apu Salkantay, the most important mountain spirit god of the Inca people, resides. Built with white granite in the shape of the condor, and known as the crystal condor, the myth and legend is that the crystal condor carries the soul of the people of this Earth to the sun of divine origins. In Machu Picchu, you can connect with your original soul purpose and learn what you need to manifest in this lifetime, to leave as an offering and a legacy for generations to come. Machu Picchu is the temple of liberation, self-realization, and enlightenment, and honors the most important constellation of the Inca people the southern cross constellation also known as the heart of the Milky Way.


Qorikancha, the “Temple of the Sun,” is the center of centers of the Inca civilization. Completely adorned in gold, silver, and precious stones, with life-sized sacred spiritual symbols, it represents the cosmovision. This land is known as a vortex, where many ley lines converge. It was believed that the disc representing the sun was in this temple made of crystals and precious stones (some believe from materials not of this Earth!). Top chiefs, governors, military and religious leaders, and high priests and priestesses came to this sacred temple to ask the oracle questions and make important decisions for the Inca civilization. The people of the community were only allowed outside the temple walls to pray to their ancestors, the sun disc, and the Divine... for enlightenment, self-realization, and illumination.


Saqsaywaman, the “Temple of the Enlightened,” is also known as “satisfied hawk” or “great head of the puma.” This temple was for the head of administration, top military, government, and religious leaders. The enlightened head of the puma is a terrace in the shape of lightning with lithic pieces and stones brought from a quarry 25 km southeast of Cusco, weighing approximately 120 tons. At this temple, you can connect with the power of leadership, the enlightened mind, and enlightened consciousness. Here, the Andean people give homage to Father Sun and Mother Earth and keep ancestral ceremonies, rituals, and offerings of gratitude alive.


Chinchero, the “Land of the Rainbow,” was derived from the word Sincheraq the people of highly evolved souls who discovered and offered their gifts from an early age to the family and community through the Tawantinsuyu (the four regions of the sun). In ancient times, this was a university where young people were trained in the arts of weaving, architecture, engineering, astronomy, and military. Today, Chinchero is an amazing altar for the sunset. It’s believed that these altars facing the west are meant to honor the ancestors, leaders, and high priests and priestesses, who have set with the sun and, with their light, are still guarding us to be in service... for our evolution and self-realization. Chinchero is also known as the land of the rainbow and is the temple of the seven rays, which are the most important lineages and traditions of the world.


Quillarumiyoq is a sacred place of ceremony and sharing in communion with nature and the Apus (powerful mountain spirits), and serves as a portal to connect with Mother Earth and the Divine Feminine, fertility, and rebirth. Archeologists just recently discovered these sacred caves, altars, and ceremonial platforms in 2005, and they remain relatively lesser known.
