Blue Morpho Shamanic Ayahuasca & Sacred Plant Retreats

The Focus Of Blue Morpho’s Ayahuasca Workshops Are On Your Personal And Spiritual Growth, Transformation And Evolution.

A shamanic workshop at Blue Morpho is designed to help participants achieve personal and spiritual transformation through Amazonian shamanism, mystical exploration, and personal experience. Our retreats incorporate the traditional use of the sacred visionary plant medicine ayahuasca in conjunction with universal spirituality and modern disciplines of shamanism. We focus on bridging the gap between Western cultures and these ancient practices to offer an experience that truly impacts the entirety of your life. As part of Blue Morpho’s unique approach, the practices of Amazonian shamanism are wielded to support you on your journey towards living a life filled with more love, beauty, joy and compassion. Where healing is just the beginning, this is an experience that transforms the entirety of who you are.


Traditional Ayahuasca Ceremonies:  Led by 7th Generation Master Shaman Don Alberto Torres Davila and the Blue Morpho Shamans. Experience the mystery and transformational power of sacred traditional rituals and plant medicines. The ayahuasca ceremony will help you release, purge, purify and learn through direct personal experience of spirit, medicine and universal wisdom.

Discussion and Identification of Medicinal Plants:  Learn about the amazing properties of the indigenous flora. The Amazon is home to thousands of medicinal plants used by the locals to cure many illnesses ranging from headaches to cancer. As part of the ayahuasca cooking process, we will learn about the medicinal plants that go into the ayahuasca brew.

Personal Shamanic Healing:  Each person receives the shamanic attention they need, both in and out of ceremony. We perform personal healing sessions (called venteadas) for each guest and also offer one-on-one time with the shamans throughout the week. Help and support are available to you the entire workshop.

Shamanic Journey and Skill Practice:  As part of the ayahuasca ceremonies, explore shamanic journeying into the spirit world to connect with spirit guides, plant spirits, guardian angels, and power animals. Learn how to work with spirits in everyday life to harness their healing and teaching power, turning ordinary life into something magical. You can also take part in our video courses during the day to learn shamanic skills that can be applied both in and out of ceremony.

Discussion of Universal Spirituality:  Universal spiritual understanding brings resolution to psychological, emotional and spiritual challenges. As you awaken to your universal truth, the very understanding of your universe is redefined. These discussions and realizations help you to gain deeper knowledge of the powerful energetic changes you are experiencing.

Soul Retrievals:  A traditional shamanic technique that reconnects lost or separated spirit parts. It restores the balance of the subtle energetic body (spirit) as past traumas are released and the separated parts are healed and returned home, replenishing the soul and life forces. Soul retrievals are performed during ayahuasca ceremonies.

Shamanic Dieting:  On select workshops, shamanic dietas are offered. Traditionally used as the means of apprenticing in the jungle, a shamanic dieta can help provide deep personal healing, learning, and profound life transformation.

Integration Practices:  We offer a variety of integration practices to enhance not only your time on the workshop, but to support your continued learning and evolving at home.


The Blue Morpho Shamanic Center is surrounded by lush, vibrant rainforest, islands and lagoons teeming with wildlife. Located on the banks of the Amazon River about 80 Km down river from Iquitos, this optimum location offers the perfect mix of jungle activities, comfort, and amenities in a pristine environment for your Blue Morpho ayahuasca experience.

Blue Morpho offers a second ayahuasca retreat center about 55 Km outside the city of Iquitos.

    Trying not to have expectations I made the commitment to myself to completely surrender and let the spirits take me and give me the good scrubbing I desperately needed. Papa Tua did not disappoint and with 3 pretty BIG nights out of the 5 I released deep guilt and shame and the self destructive patterns that manifest from them, forgave many including myself, understood that I am worthy, and heard my late mother tell me that she did in fact love me. Nothing could have prepared me for this experience but I know deep within that it was, is and always will be a life-changing turning point setting me on a completely different path than I was on. Through the purging, laughter and tears the Blue Morpho team was there with me the entire time, holding my hand and my heart when it became heavy and encouraging me throughout. I literally trust them with my life and am looking forward to my upcoming return to explore, learn and grow.

      When I finally met myself.

    Before participating in my first Blue Morpho ayahuasca tour, I was a concept to myself. Not a false concept, but still only a concept. My understanding of myself had been built on years of trying to figure out who I was, what I was good at, what I had come to achieve. I had pretty much explored all tools available to me and had reached a relative level of balance and success. I had gathered a lot of information. Put myself through a lot of challenging experiences. And here I was, this interesting multi-dimensional concept, that felt dead inside. During my week in Iquitos, I was given the gift of the experience of myself. I was offered the blessing of the experience of true love and the peace that comes with it. I received insight on the workings of my mind and how to put it at the service of my experience instead of the other way around. I have never felt so alive as I do today after this extraordinary experience. I am in motion again, moving onwards on the path of this incredible journey that is life. I feel immense gratitude towards Blue Morpho shamans and team for creating a safe and protected environment for this life-transforming experience. I have felt supported, loved and accepted every step of the way. The Heliconia camp is set in a unique environment, conducive to a communion with nature and yourself; it is beautiful and intimate. The Heliconia team is friendly, cheerful, discrete and customer-oriented. Food is delicious. Finally, I am blessed with many new friends who have reminded me how beautiful and vibrant our human connection is.

      A precious gift to myself.

    I have participated in a few ceremonies in January 2017 and it has been an amazing journey. It helps that the camp has everything necessary for the comfortable rest as aya experiences can be rather intense. I simply loved the team, they are angels and appear by your side just when you need them. I will be coming back soon.
