The Sanctuary of Renana

The Sanctuary of Renana is an ayahuasca retreat center offering a unique combination of shamanic techniques and other time-tested, yet modern healing modalities. The Sanctuary is located on a biological preserve which contains nearly 1,000 hectares of virgin rainforest, renowned for its high bio diversity of Amazonian fauna and flora. It is situated upon a serene, isolated lake in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest of Northern Peru.

Our mission is to provide our guests with the safety and security necessary for them to feel fully at ease during their healing and expansion process.

Our focus is centered upon a balanced, comprehensive healing on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

We designed our retreat program to meet the various demands of our guests. Instead of using a specific healing practice as a one-stop cure all, we recognize that every person who comes to our center is an individual, and will be coming to us with individual needs.

Our 10 Day Individualized Ayahuasca Retreat offers:

Four Ayahuasca ceremonies with our caring and incredibly powerfull local ayahuasquera;

One ceremony with Magic Mushrooms.

Steam baths and fever baths infused with medicinal plants  and relaxing esential oils;

One Massage therapy “tailor-made” treatment;

Before the first ceremony, each person will have an individual consultation with our experienced curandera, a gentle and caring ayahuasquera. (Spanish Translation will be provided.) Following each ceremony, there will be group sharing circles in which the healer will be present, in order to get updates on your progress throughout the retreat.

You will have the option of going on professionally guided jungle tours that are unavailable anywhere else.

      Life-changing experience with a bunch of incredible people!

    Don Marcos is the best Shaman I've ever had the priviledge to work with, he is so kind but hard working and professional. The ceremonies are magical and the medicine is pure. The retreat itself is very beautiful and clean. The food is plentiful and tasty unlike other retreats where the food is unnecessarily bland! 5 stars from me and I will revisit. The whole team are awesome <3

      Life changing

    It's difficult to summarise in only a few words, a place that facilitated the greatest change in my life. For lack of space, I shan't go into my personal experience with the Ayahuasca, (which incidentally is the strongest I've tried.) But instead use this chance to praise the most kind hearted, compassionate and knowledgeable group of facilitators I've had the pleasure of working with. Renana is set in the most beautiful part of the jungle, boasting the most beautiful views, accompanied by the most beautiful souls.. what more could you want?!

      A very special unique retreat!

    I just had the pleasure of a 10 day retreat at the Sanctuary of Renana and it was amazing from start to finish. It delivered what was promised and so much more. It not not contained the WOW factor for such a beautiful location and facilities, but the real WOW factor is all the amazing healers and staff who are working there to heal you and help you grow as person. This is a fact and I have only love and gratitude to each and every one of them. I must make a special mention to Don Marcos. He is incredible! such a powerful, caring and loving shaman that gives his all to help heal you! Thank you for all your work! The retreat is well structured, organised, personalised and fun. It contains several healing methods that all complimented each other and I could feel my energy and spirit returning more and more each day. These methods combined very well with the powerful ayahuasca ceremonies participated in. There is plenty of time for reflection and fun! I enjoyed the jungle tours, boat rides and bon fire with the company of my newly made friends and family. I recommend this special place of healing to anyone and I cannot wait to return. Thank you Sanctuary of Renana!
