Feathered Serpent Retreats
A vocation to serve
We are a group of friends from different backgrounds that met on our healing journey in Peru. Our dedication to healing done impeccably, honestly, and with integrity motivated us to come together and start making our own retreats. Our mission is to inspire you to heal, transform and find your creative purpose. We hope to see you soon, lots of love!!!
We have facilitated miraculous transformations over the years, and it is with great honor that we welcome you to our home, the Sacred Valley, a place of deep healing. We have decided to put our experiences, professional skills, and humble hearts to the service of humanity and healing. Come and experience our 10-day transformational retreats, using an array of plant medicines, energy work, and artistic practices to shine the light in the depths of yourself and experience healing at the deepest levels.
Initially working with other retreat centers, we have decided to create our own, where the focus of the retreat is the grandfather medicine of San Pedro. Our core values are integrity, equality and selfless service. We have many years of experience working with depression, anxiety, PTSD, addictions, and other ailments physical, emotional, and spiritual. We are all human beings on our life path with something extraordinary to share...

Musician, Voice healer
Hanna D., hailing from the United States and Sweden, is a natural healer and singer, sharing ancient world music and intuitive sound-healing melodies.

Now she works as a musician/performer and a forest-school teacher, teaching nature-connection and organic expression. One of her deepest heart-missions on this Earth is to empower others to connect with their innate ability to express their unique art, with a specific focus on the use of the voice as a sacred instrument. She is deeply immersed in the studies of vocal healing and the curative powers of music, sound, and singing.
