Paz Y Luz in Pisac, Peru is a healing retreat located near the Urumbamba River and surrounded by mountains. It is close to town and also relatively close to the Incan ruins on the mountainside, overlooking Pisac and the whole valley.


We received massages and reflexology from a Swedish therapist specializing in reflexology. She was staying at the center for a couple months on a live/work arrangement with the owner. The owner also mentioned to my boyfriend (who is a massage therapist) that he could come stay a while in exchange for room and board, so I think that is an ongoing possibility if you’re qualified in the healing arts.

They recently finished an addition so they can offer more housing for participants. The only downside of staying here is that it’s very difficult to walk back after dark. The first night we were back for the sunset and that was perfect, but the second night we tried to walk and it was so pitch black that we couldn’t even see the road in front of us; we had to go back to town and hail a taxi. The cab rides are inexpensive; so don’t worry about it if you want to spend the night in town. Since we were there, Paz Y Luz completed building a restaurant, so that should make it easier since you can eat dinner just a short walk from your room.


The staff was terrific. Gray, the manager, was a welcoming, helpful, relaxed presence and really made the stay memorable. He had the uncanny ability to be there when you had a question or wanted to chat and to disappear when you were drinking in nature or preferred to be alone. Being a shamanic healer himself, it must be all that shapeshifting.
