Are you ready to be free?

You’ve tried to heal yourself, but you feel stuck.

You know deep down that you are here for a purpose.

You crave a supportive circle of friends that see the real you.

Are you ready to open your heart to all the universe has to offer?

Imagine having an intimate support team of plants, sisters, and indigenous guides to walk by your side.

Imagine truly knowing how to heal yourself.

What would it feel like to wake up and know why you came here?

Courage 2.0 is more of a sisterhood than a retreat. After leaving our corporate jobs, we needed a reset. We found that, and so much more, on our individual healing journeys in Peru.

Working with plant medicines and connecting with the powerful energy of the Sacred Valley is one of the most impactful paths of self-healing one can experience.

This retreat will bring you from fear to love in just 7 days. 

Together we will journey into our depths to reveal our Soul's true essence. Through work with local medicines, we will heal, vision and create a heart-centered path for our lives.


About the retreat

The divine feminine is awakening. Everywhere you look, women are stepping into their power as visionary leaders for the future of humanity. In order to create a heart-based society with reverence for nature, it is our duty as women to bring our shadows to light so that we may heal and awaken.

Courage 2.0 is a 7 day women's retreat working with Ayahuasca, Cacao and indigenous wisdom traditions from Peru. These medicines and traditions support our healing and awakening in profound ways. During the retreat, you will have an opportunity to connect with like-minded sisters who are heeding the call of their hearts. Through individual mentorship and group circles, we will return to the Old Ways of healing in community, uplifting one another through struggle and triumph. If you are ready to step into a more expanded, powerful Self than you’ve ever imagined, this retreat is for you. 


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

It’s rare to find organized witches — and I must say that Sena and Maggie are those rare gems. They brought together a truly integrated, balanced and deeply transformational healing retreat beyond my wildest imagination.

Maggie and Sena are the best and have so much knowledge and love to give and they do so from a very authentic place with absolutely zero power trips. This has been perhaps one of the best experiences and investments that I’ve done for myself. Do yourself a favor and become a part of the Tesora Sacred Travel tribe, you will not regret it!
— Mariana C

The plant medicine work we engaged in was deeply healing and helped me explore things I had buried deep in my heart. I emerged feeling completely renewed. I felt (and still feel, and don’t expect that to change!) so supported by Maggie and Sena and the group of women who attended, and that we formed a life-long bond built around our shared experience during the retreat.

Tesora Sacred Travel was the best gift I have ever given to myself. Maggie and Sena have curated the very best of their own healing experiences to create an intentional space for people to go inward. This experience went far beyond traditional retreats or vacations — it opened up the space for a deep connection with myself, my truth, and with other fellow seekers in an environment that was entirely devoted to community, radical self-care, and transformative healing.

Your Medicine Women

 

Maestra Juana

For the Ayahuasca ceremonies we will be working with Juana, AKA Isa Yaka (Hummingbird). She is 60 years old and comes from the Shipibo community of Pauyan. She has been studying as a maestra for more than 30 years and has dedicated herself to the path of healing through her commitment of many years of dieta. Her main dieta has been with the tree, Noya Rao, which she began dieting 11 years ago. Her lineage of healers are known and respected as some of the most powerful curanderos/as of the Shipibo tradition and of the Amazon region as a whole. Juana is also known for her incredible knowledge of the body and specializes in massage and bone setting. She has 8 children and holds a joyful, child-like spirit.

Carolina Dowell

Carolina will work alongside Juana as the facilitator for our Ayahuasca Ceremonies. She also hosts her own ceremonies through her organization, Tree of Light Retreats, which holds a safe space for women to experience Ayahuasca in the Shipibo tradition. She lives in the Sacred Valley of Peru with her partner and beautiful daughter.

Carolina first began working with Ayahuasca in 2010. After her first ceremony she knew that she had found her teacher, and in 2011 she made her first journey to Peru to work with Shipibo healers. Her experiences were so profound that she decided to make a big life change and move to the jungle. She spent the next few years working closely with the medicine and other plant dietas. She received a very deep calling from the plants to help share their wisdom and support others choosing to step onto this path.

Qori Koka

Qori Koka (meaning Golden Coca, the sacred plant of the Inca) was born and raised in the Sacred Valley of Peru. She is of Inca descent and carries the wisdom traditions of her ancestors with humility and honor. During Courage 2.0 Qori will lead us in an offering for the land. We’ll lay down our prayers and gratitude at the beginning of the retreat, asking the sacred land to hold us as we journey deep into our hearts. She will also be sharing a water blessing with each woman to cleanse and purify your spirit. It is such an honor to have her at our retreat, sharing the ancient Inca wisdom codes and her reverence for Pachamama.

In our week together I got to travel into the depths of my soul and heal old wounds and stories that had been weighing me down and holding me back from my next level. In ceremony and through conversation with my sisters, I was able experience the freeing of my voice and a profound connection with my true purpose. I am so grateful for the release, the insight, the memories, the new friends, and most importantly the strength and the courage I developed through the journey.

Venue, Logistics + Transportation

About Las Chullpas

Las Chullpas is a beautiful eco-lodge situated in Urubamba in the Sacred Valley of Peru. We are offering private, double and triple occupancy rooms for your stay. There is ample outdoor space so that you can connect with nature throughout the retreat. Our meals will all be vegetarian.

Logistics

We recommend that you arrive at least 2 days before the retreat begins so you can acclimatize to the altitude. Cusco is at 11K ft and the Sacred Valley is around 9K ft. You’ll want ample time to rest and allow your body to adjust to life at 2 miles high.

Once you register for the retreat, we’ll provide a list of places to stay in Cusco and Pisac that are near our pickup locations for Monday, April 30.

Transportation

We love Las Chullpas because it’s private and secluded, but its off-the-beaten-path location makes it a bit challenging to get to. We will be providing transportation to and from the retreat center to make your journey with us as seamless as possible.

TO THE RETREAT

The retreat begins on Monday, April 30 in the afternoon. We will have 2 pick-ups - one in Cusco and one in Pisac - to transport you to Las Chullpas, the retreat center.

  • Plaza San Blas Church in Cusco on Monday 4/30 at 11am
  • In front of Chaska Pisac on Monday 4/30 at 12pm

FROM THE RETREAT

The retreat ends on Monday, May 7 in the morning. We will have 2 shuttles - one to Cusco and one to Pisac - to transport you from Las Chullpas. Both Cusco and Pisac are excellent jumping off points for other journeys in Peru.

  • Two shuttles will depart Las Chullpas on Monday 5/7 at 10am
  • One shuttle drops off at Chaska Pisac in Pisac (~11am)
  • One shuttle drops off at Plaza San Blas Church in Cusco (~12:30pm)

After you register we will send you a detailed logistics document with maps, basic Spanish phrases to help you get around, and details on where to stay in Cusco and Pisac. We’ll also be in contact with you directly about your travel plans. We’re here to support you!


We can't wait to journey into our hearts together!
