Wisdom begins in wonder


In the magical Amazon rainforest of PERU we offer Ayahuasca, San Pedro and shamanic plant diet apprenticeship retreats with Shipibo Master shaman Don Alfredo, Maestra Claudia, and senior jungle guide Clever Hoyos in the Ayahuma Shamanic Retreat Centre – Onanyati Jiwi in Shipibo tongue – a charming venue surrounded by 600 hectares of luscious rainforest, with an amazing array of medicinal and teacher plants (plantas maestras) as well as countless master trees (palos maestros) – including the magical Lupuna blanca giant tree – near the jungle town of Iquitos. A splendid four star retreat centre, built with a vision of love and beauty. All our retreats in the Ayahuma centre are ONGOING, all year round. Just inquire for availability in the dates you wish to come, choose, reserve and book your place for your preferred time slot and you are done with it! Complement your retreat with Amazon river boat trips, excursions and jungle trips, visiting native Yagua and Bora communities, seeing the giant Lupuna master tree – the master of all master plants and trees – in the primary rainforest of the Yanamono reserve and a lot more.
