Transformative Healing Retreat to the Peruvian Andes
June 29th-July 6th, 2019
with Romi Cumes LMFT, CMT
Join Romi Cumes MA, LMFT this June for a special travel opportunity that will guide guests through Cusco, Machu Picchu, and the Sacred Valley of Peru. For the last twenty years, Peru has been like a second home to Romi and her family. Carol Cumes, founder and visionary behind “Willka T’ika”, created one of the most beautiful retreat centers in South America. This special retreat offers participants a unique and luxurious opportunity to visit the most stunning sacred sites in Peru, while experiencing Willka T’ika’s gorgeous gardens and guest areas.
Willka T’ika means “Sacred Flower” in Quechua and the land lives up to its name. Located in one of the most stunning places on earth, the beauty of Pachamama (mother earth in Quechua) radiates throughout Willka T’ika’s grounds. From the hand-crafted guestroom and yoga studio design, to the breathtaking Chakra Gardens, organic vegetarian farm-to-table meals, Andean ceremonial spaces and devoted service by the local Quechuan staff, Willka T’ika is a model of authentic artistry and sustainability.
After two days and one night in the ancient city of Cusco, participants will be based at Willka T’ika, and from there take daily excursions to some of the most beautiful and sacred sites in the world. Guests will experience the magnetic spirit of the Peruvian people and their traditions, while being provided space for quiet reflection, personal healing, and transformation. Each morning will start with a guided movement or yoga practice and I will facilitate meditation and group healing sessions at various sacred sites. One-on-one bodywork and counseling sessions will also be available.
People leave the Sacred Valley feeling as though they have be drenched in a culturally-rich, meaningful experience. This is a luxury travel experience with deeply grounded roots, and I am thrilled to be your guide this June. For those wishing to have more time at Willka T’ika, additional days and nights may be added for an additional charge.

“I traveled to Peru with Romi in 2014 on a yoga/healing retreat. It was an amazing trip and experience. Romi’s yoga knowledge is superb and the accommodations were spectacular. Every excursion was led by a knowledgeable guide. I have and will continue to recommend this trip to anyone that has Machu Picchu on their bucket list! ”

“Wow. I joined Romi on her yoga retreat to the Sacred Valley of Peru in May of 2014. It was an incredible experience and the memories from that holiday will last a lifetime. From the scenery and the tremendous vibe of the Andes, to the warm family that welcomed us at Willka T’ika, Romi put together an amazing program that allowed us to experience local culture, learn native history, hike beautiful landscapes, practice lots of yoga and share plenty of laughs. Romi is an intuitive, warm and brilliant teacher and bodyworker. She’s also lots of fun!!
