- Pucullpa, Peru
The Pachamama Temple is a cooperatively owned Ayahuasca Healing Center dedicated to sharing the medicine of Mother Ayahuasca, Mother Earth and the ancient wisdom of the Shipibo people. The Temple’s beloved Shipibo name is Roa Niwe Nate, which translates to “the realm of the medicine wind”. This name foretells that the Ayahuasca vine and the Chacruna leaf, which together make the Sacred Medicine of the Shipibo Healers, will blow across the world, traveling far beyond the Amazonian rainforest.
Ayahuasca’s healing potential is unknown to many, but ready to be discovered for those spiritual seekers that are willing to go on a journey and benefit from her wisdom. We at Pachamama Temple are in awe of her healing power and have dedicated ourselves to spreading her medicine for the benefit of all.
We offer 12 day Ayahuasca Retreats led by experienced Shipibo shamans who work together with carefully selected and skilled western facilitators. We provide a genuine, caring and safe environment for guests who want to work with the sacred medicine. The Temple also offers longer stays for those who are interested to learn more in-depth about the medicine, experience plant dietas and study Shipibo culture.
LOCATED IN THE HEART OF A SHIPIBO COMMUNITY
Pachamama Temple has made a bold step out of the jungle of Iquitos where most peruvian Ayahuasca retreats take place, and into the native land of the Shipibo people where we strongly feel it belongs. Located in Pucullpa, Peru, our shamans work in their natural, family-like environment where our guests can be provided with the highest level of safety and service. Visiting Pachamama Temple will give you the feeling of visiting the healers in their own home, where they are open, joyful and relaxed.
ROOTED IN TRADITIONAL HEALING PRACTICES
Before the western interest in drinking Ayahuasca, only shamans drank the brew. At the request of our healers, we honor this ancient practice by starting our retreats with one ceremony where only our shamans drink. This traditional ceremony gives them a chance to read our guests energetically, with the help of the plants, and allows them to better tailor their healing work for each person throughout the retreat. We are proud to say we are the only center we know of that takes time to honor and practice this traditional way.
CARING FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
Humanity is awaking and reaching deeper into the ancient cultures to learn the old paths of wisdom. One of the cornerstones of the Pachamama Temple is our Vision for a Shipibo School that will preserve and carry on the traditional ways of the Shipibo, while also integrating with the demands of the modern world. We strongly believe that education is a key step if we want to leave this world a better place for our children.
