Welcome To Shamanic Space

Held with dedication and care for Peruvian culture and traditions since 1976.

Shamanic Space’s work is to create a bridge through Shamanic healing and Shamanic journeys from the modern world of our clients to the indigenous Shamans and Inca wisdom of Peru. Shamanic Space was founded when Peruvian born Shaman and renowned archaeologist Dr. Rubén Orellana PHD began to work with London based psychotherapist and Shamanic practitioner Michele Costa Lukis with the intention to create safe and small Ayahuasca and San Pedro ceremonial retreats in Peru. We offer two Shamanic retreats in Peru working with the plant medicines in addition to individual healing sessions and Shamanic workshops held in London. From the Amazon Jungle to the high country we are honoured to work exclusively with renowned and highly experienced indigenous Curanderos and Ayahuasqueros in traditional ceremonies. Your safety is of the utmost importance to us and therefore we maintain small groups to allow for more individual care and attention.

“My greatest joy is to share the knowledge that I have discovered through my work as an archaeologist and an anthropologist alongside the teachings of wisdom from my shamanic path. My spiritual path is to preserve the ancient Andean wisdom of my country and to bridge the understanding of these traditions into the modern world. This is of utmost importance to me.”

Dr. Rubén Orellana PHD

Ayahuasca Intensive Retreat

Our Ayahuasca Intensive Retreat is held once a year for a very limited number of people. This retreat is held solely in the Amazon Jungle and is focused on working with the sacred plant medicine of Ayahuasca. Over a period of fourteen days the group will be experiencing and reflecting on its healing properties. The small numbers are important to maintain as this is the traditional way of working with Ayahuasca and allows for more individual care and attention. The group is held by Dr. Rubén Orellana, Ayahuascero Don. M and Michele Costa Lukis, who brings her skills as a transpersonal psychotherapist to the group, providing support and helping to integrate the experience of Ayahuasca.
