Melissa Wasi temple

Melissa Wasi templeHow to Arrive
From Cusco, it takes 40 minutes to get to Pisaq either by taxi for S/. 60 soles, or mini van (S/.4 soles) from Puputi street stations.

Once in the town of Pisaq, take a mototaxi for 3 soles to Melissa Wasi (on the way to Hotel Royal Inka). You can also take the road by the river and arrive in a 10 minute walk from town.

After the Hotel Royal Inca, there is a turn to the right on an unpaved road. Follow this road for  300m until you see the sign on the right for “Melissa Wasi”.

Instructions
We usually have between 15 to 30 people (max. 30 people) in each Ayahuasca ceremony at Melissa Wasi, all traveling along different paths from around the world.

The ceremonies are lead by people with years of experience taking Ayahuasca and they are well versed in dealing with different situations that may arise within ceremony. Logistically, one person leads the ceremony, while other experienced assistants support the participants, in order to provide a safe environment for you to go through the experience with peace of mind. We know it is important for you to feel safe, especially if this is the first time you are taking Ayahuasca and so we do our best to provide such a space.

We ask you to arrive here at 7pm, and no later than 7.30pm. It is ok to arrive earlier, or leave your belongings here if you wish to explore Pisaq or the surrounding areas. You can also use this time to meditate in the temple or in the gardens in order to prepare for your Ayahuasca ceremony.

After getting to know the other people journeying, the guidelines for the ceremony will be given, and the ceremony will start. The ceremony will start at 9pm and will end around 3am. You are welcome to sleep at the temple until the morning. We can also help you arrange transportation after the ceremony, if you need, so just let us know when you come.

We provide the basic necessities for the Ayahuasca ceremony, such as blankets, buckets, and cushions. However, we do ask that you bring water and comfortable clothes for the night and, if you wish, something to eat in the morning. (fruit is recommended).
