The Hummingbird Center is focused on healing and transformation: physically, emotionally and spirtually. Come join our 12 day retreat and gain the benefit of working with these wonderful medicines under Maestro Manai Amacifen who has over 38 years experience working with ayahuasca. While staying true to the ayahuasca healing tradition, we also have skilled facilitators and life coaching to help one understand and integrate their experience.
After 5 years and over 800 happy clients, the Hummingbird Center's proven process of healing and transformation continues to slowly improve as we learn from the wonderful people who pass through our moloca. This is a place where real change and healing happens. Your life truly can be transformed in only 12 days. Just see what our guests say about us on Trip Advisor!
The Hummingbird Center has beautiful grounds and offers the highest quality accomodations of any center in the region, with the exception of Blue Morpho who charges double our price.
Our 12 day ayahuasca and huachuma retreats are developed in co-operation with our local Peruvian shaman so they remain as true as possible to the traditional use of ayahuasca and other plant medicines for healing and visionary journeys. The 12 day ayahuasca and huachuma retreat is an effective process offering a safe, supportive environment for personal healing and spiritual transformation. The emphasis is on concentrated interaction with the plant medicines, balanced by informative activities and periods of relaxation and rest so you will be prepared for the next ceremony. Emphasis is on time in ceremony with the medicine plants, and we encourage discussion of your experience. We are available to answer any questions and help you understand and integrate what is learned from your journeys.
Additional cleansing processes are planned to help you get the most out of your time with the medicine plants. Most planned activities are intended to facilitate the healing process, being one form or other of traditional healing practice. All meals and lodging are included and you will stay in our new guest house overlooking the lake.
We recommend participants arrive in Iquitos the day before the program begins. This allows you to enter the healing journey well rested and relaxed. You will be picked up at 10 AM and brought to the Hummingbird Center. We will meet at La Noche, a restaurant on the "Boulevard", a park fronting the river a block away from the Plaza de Armas that has a number of restraurants. La Noche is the only one with a balcony so it is easy to spot. The Boulevard is within easy walking distance of all the hotels near the plaza and very easy to locate. You will arrive at the center with time to get your rooms assigned, relax a bit, then have lunch. We will have an orientation meeting in the moloca at 3 PM, followed by a plant bath to prepare for your first ayahuasca ceremony.
