*** Limited Space available

What does ‘TRIBE MEDICINE offer?

This retreat offers a unique and safe experience of working with the reputed Plant Medicine, Huachuma – or San Pedro Cactus. Preparation and integration are key components in accessing the remarkable healing properties of this ancestral medicine, and will be facilitated by Beáta and Frédéric. ‘Tribe Medicine’ is designed to immerse you in a sacred and natural space of returning to the essential untamed you. To live a compelling life requires trust, courage and extraordinary vision – the ability to consistently implement the right actions in your life, infused with the intangible dynamics of Spirit. Without a roadmap or experienced guidance, the use of Plant Medicines can be frustrating and overwhelming. This retreat will accelerate your growth, activate your potential and transform the stories that keep you from living an inspired life.

  • Define your vision
  • Align with your purpose
  • Cultivate your unique strengths
  • Activate ceremonies for a life of magic
  • Manifest your dream life
  • Optimise your intuition
  • Deepen your ‘knowing’
  • Find the right tools for a compelling life
  • Magnetise your true value
  • Be in the flow at all times
  • Maximise your ability to connect
  • Harness the reciprocity of Spirit

And you’ll do all of this in a way that’s fully aligned with your power and authenticity.

Why Huachuma Plant Medicine?

The Origins

The Huachuma Cactus is cherished by the Andean people as a powerful medicine, a sacred teacher, master healing plant and a doorway to the spiritual world. It’s been used in Peru for over 4,000 years as a powerful catalyst for healing, connection and self understanding.

Each ceremony with the cactus produces a gentle yet profound shift in consciousness, helping us cleanse and heal the wounds of the past, while opening us to a more heart centred and conscious way of being.

The Experience

Each person’s experience is unique – a personal journey of self discovery and connection to the Divine. In his book ‘Plants of the Gods’, ethnobotanist Richard Evans Schultes explains – “San Pedro is in tune with beings that have supernatural powers.

Participants [in ceremonies] are ‘set free from matter’ and engage in flight through cosmic regions…transported across time and distance in a rapid and safe fashion.”

The Benefits

Huachuma is considered a doorway and the ‘maestro of the maestros’. The real power of San Pedro helps us to grow, learn and awaken. It shows us reality as it actually is, to a point where we understand everything in the Universe is alive, connected and has a spirit.

We are offered a doorway to the infinite to sense, or even see the inter-relationship and connection between everything that exists, to see there is no separation between us, and ultimately to realise we are all One.




Here is What You’ll Get

Three Huachuma Ceremonies

This Earth Medicine Retreat combines three Huachuma Ceremonies and the sophisticated process of preparation and integration work of worldwide facilitators and shamanic practitioners – Beáta Alföldi and Frédéric Cherri.


Working with sacred plant medicines is such a new experience for most of us, it is very useful to prepare oneself before meeting this Teacher Plant. To prepare this path does not have to be hard work, but needs gentle guidance and experience. Mostly, Beáta & Frederic and their combined skills, will help you work with blocks, fears, trust & surrender. The medicine often shows us aspects of ourselves that we were not able to know or accept before; and this is where a guided preparation is invaluable.


After any medicine ceremony, where your sensitivities are heightened beyond the normal thresholds, the return, or integration, can be deepened by the presence and care of someone who knows and can sense where you have been, what you’ve seen and what you’ve experienced. Over years of practice and study we have developed and share the right tools to help and enhance your own integration of this unique experience.

Soul Purpose

In a nutshell, to assist you identify or enhance your Soul Calling is the purpose of this retreat. And, to provide the appropriate, easy and durable tools to manifest this calling further into your life. We are offering here a retreat combining Ancestral wisdom and the latest in scientific discoveries, both presented in long-standing facilitation skills. Our focus is to deepen your connection to the wisdom of your soul – to guide, inform and inspire every aspect of your life.

Rituals for Transformation

Rituals, mandalas & the altered states they invite are extremely powerful tools to create the right space and support your understanding of the insights offered by sacred medicine. You will learn how to shift perception and work with rituals and earth mandalas to that intent. Bringing these tools into your daily life will further create a life of magic, intention and meaning. Earth, fire, air and water rituals will be created to clear the ‘old’, invite the ‘new’ and manifest your dream life.

"...incredibly uplifting, hugely awakening, confronting and very powerful on a personal and spiritual level... This was an incredible experience, where I developed a wonderful appreciation of self awareness and the power of being kind - to myself and others. During this retreat, the weight of my problems truely lifted off me, and I felt lighter with a greater calmness, strength, joy and happiness replacing it. Beáta and Frédéric guided my heart and soul... I found tools to “see” and “feel” on a spiritual level. To be able to connect to other realms was something that I never thought possible..."


– Grant Rogers –


“When I was ready to turn around, with determination, I took that first step and decided to face myself. Beáta and Frédéric were there to hold the space for me, with their tenderness, their wisdom and combined with their feminine and masculine power - they gave me enough time to know, to feel that I was never alone. This retreat helped me to remember that Love flows like a river. It's always moving and changing, yet the river is always there - radiant, kind and fierce. Both Beata and Frederic’s hearts beat with the rhythm of Mother Earth. If you need guides on your journey – you’ve found your way home."
‘Let the  joys and the jeopardy of life create a fearless resilient person, who is whole. Who is me. ‘

– Mark & Susan Ang Ngo and our Hero, Baby Zen –


“I experienced a deeper connection with myself, nature and the world around me. The undeniable power and wisdom that I carry within – but had forgotten along the way. I felt I was able to finally surrender and let go of all the old stories holding me back in life.”

What others Say about this retreat

Why did you attend a SPIRIT Retreat?

AMY: “To connect deeper with myself, others and the world around me.”
SOPHIE: “To continue to learn about myself and to connect deeper with my guides, and to meet like-minded women. (Also to have fun).
REBECCA: “Because I wanted to dive deeper into parts of myself that I was afraid to explore on my own, and knew that taking myself away from my daily life was needed in supporting this exploration.”
LYNDAL: “More than anything I felt called. I felt that I had lost my job just prior to allow me to go and find myself again because I was feeling lost being back home, not knowing what path to take and engaging in addictive behaviors because of that. I wanted to know what to do with my career and I wanted too tap back in with my true nature spiritually speaking.”

What was your most cherished part of our retreat?

JOHN: “I think I said the word ‘brilliant’ about 12 times in a row on the last day of the retreat, and not because I had no other superlatives at my disposal, but more for the fact that even trying to use language seemed silly to describe the journey we had all taken together over…”

ODETTE:” This work is of a divine order! As a ceremonial space and circle for women’s medicine – the strength of character and deep presence that was held, was both rare and unique. I look forward to many more journeys in the future!”

FRANK: “I didn’t doubt for a moment that this retreat would pack more and more beautiful tools into my ‘how-to-live-life-with-wonderment’ kit, but even so, every day gave me so much more than I imagined. Practical, raw and astonishing.”

What was your experience during our Retreat?

SUE: “I experienced a deeper connection with myself, nature and the world around me.”
TARA: “The meaning of true sisterhood, as well as the compassion and support each woman gave to each other.”
PETER: “The undeniable power and wisdom that I carry within – but had forgotten along the way.”
EMMA: “I felt I was able to finally surrender and let go of all the old stories that were holding me back in life.”
