Very best opinions
‘I’ve been immersing myself in the course and honestly loving every bit of it. I feel like it’s been nourishing so much growth and understanding- I’ve had so many moments where things have just clicked for me. I work with a holistic therapist on a weekly basis, and have been trying to manifest confidence in myself to walk this path- there’s not a doubt in my mind that this course is apart of that manifestation.’
"My first time working with plant medicine was with Dawid, and I couldn’t have asked for a more powerfully transformative experience working with San Pedro for the first time in the Sacred Valley.
The entire experience, from drinking the medicine to hiking through the breath taking valleys to the closing ceremony, felt like an incredibly safe container where I could allow myself to explore the realms of where my consciousness wanted to roam.
Dawid and the local Peruvian family he co-creates these experiences with instantly felt like family after my first Huachuma hike. I’m looking forward to the day I get to return to the sacred valley and journey with mi familia again! 🙂
"I really recommend Dawid’s ceremonies. I did two in two weeks and I felt very comfortable with him, I was able to go to some challenging & vulnerable places and he showed himself to be full of compassion and understanding. Both him and Santiago offer a safe space for your journey and out of all the medicine experiences I’ve had in the last 5 months in the Valley, I trust them the most. Thank you!"
‘For many years I have been remembering and hearing the call to the sacred lands of Peru. A beautiful connection lead me on a magical adventure with Dawid and his loving community💖 Dawid holds a beautiful, safe container with his frequency of love💚 My sisters and I sat in a sacred circle and participated in a medicine journey. Walking the sacred lands in this journey was very powerful and the deeper we journeyed the more supported I felt. The only way I could describe the day to my family was “best day ever”. If your new to the connection with Dawid and his community, in full faith I recommend them with my whole heart💖 I look forward to my next journey with this community 💫🙏🏻🦅’
"I organized a private ceremony with Dawid for our group of 17 women during our retreat in Peru. This day-long experience we had amongst the beautiful scenery of the lagoons was by far, THE MOST incredible experience we had in Peru. He was accompanied by a local Peruvian shaman & other medicine brothers & sisters. They played live music and also had members of the Huni Kuni tribe that performed rituals for our group. Walking through the mountains and lagoons was so breathtaking. Dawid holds such a beautiful divine masculine presence and had such sweet, tender & comforting energy that allowed for so much inner healing for the women of our group. To have a gentle masculine presence to listen to their stories in front of the fire, and to hold such sweet space for their healing was priceless, especially since most of their pain was inflicted by the darker masculine frequencies during their childhood. We also had a locally grown & prepared meal at his shaman’s house who’s family was the sweetest. Their food was so delicious & prepared with so much love. Anyone considering sitting in ceremony with Dawid, I HIGHLY suggest it. I look forward to organizing more ceremonies with him & my retreat participants."
