Wisdom begins in wonder


In the magical Amazon rainforest of PERU we offer Ayahuasca, San Pedro and special shamanic plant diet apprenticeship retreats with traditional indigenous Shipibo female healers in the Sacha Huarmi Ayahuasca healing centre, located near the jungle town of Iquitos. Currently working with us is Maestra Isabel, specialized in “love plants” (plantas de amor). She is a well respected Ayahuasquera, Palera, Tabaquera, Toesera and Camalonghera. You may download our 13 weeks/3 months shamanic diet programme, in PDF format, from the link here.

All our San Pedro and Ayahuasca retreats, as well as the shamanic apprenticeship courses in the Peruvian Amazon are ongoing, all year round, including the Easter, Christmas and New Year period. You just inquire for availability in the dates you wish to come, then choose and book your preferred time slot. You may 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.

In Southern COLOMBIA we offer one and two weeks Yagé (Ayahuasca) retreats, open to those who are already familiar with Spanish (any time of the year, minimum five partecipants booking together, minimum 30 days advance reservation). Five Ayahuasca ceremonies per week, with optional excursions to sacred and magical local wilderness places, led by our indigenous Yanacona guide. We also offer a special New Year 8 days Yagé retreat with Taita Manuel, for the period 27 December 2016-03 January 2017. Programme coming soon! Please inquire for more details.
