  • Review for Sacred Valley Peru Yoga, Sacred Sites & Ayahuasca retreat

      Wonderful Peru retreat

    Shannon & Tony, Vancouver, Canada: "My husband and I recently returned from the 12-day vegan, yoga, meditation retreat led by Angel in Peru. There were so many wonderful things about the trip, I don't know where to start. The vegan meals and cooking classes were great. Raphaella is the chef who prepares most of the vegan meals for the retreat, and she is very happy to share the recipes for her delicious creations. The tour includes all of the major Inca ruins in that area. Machu Picchu is of course the most well-known and it was spectacular, but the Pisac ruins and the Ollantaytambo ruins are also amazing. The Pisac ruins are so close to the B & B that you can almost walk to them. The people we met in Peru, both those taking the tour and those living there, were wonderful. Luckily our whole group were shoppers, as the shopping at the markets in that area is not to be missed. Lots of silver jewellery, crystals, hand-woven alpaca goods, art work, etc. I loved the daily yoga and meditation. We sometimes forget in our busy modern world to do the internal work on ourselves that needs to be done; the retreat in Peru gives you the time and the space to do that."

  • Review for The Sanctuary of Renana

    Ryan Dankmeyer   March 23, 2017

      Amazing place!

    Sanctuary of Renana will give you the authentic Amazon experience while still being safe and comfortable enough. Their shamans are very powerful and knowledgeable and Brendan and Ana are great facilitators. It is a great deal when you consider how many therapies are offered. You will have time to rest, yet stay busy enough. And they have mushrooms!

  • Review for Merav Artzi

    Valentina Gorbacheva   March 23, 2017

      endless love for tobacco and Merav!

    I have known Merav for about 2 years. I met her in Iquitos. My friend invited me to meet her as I heard that she does tobacco ceremonies. So we met and just chatted about medicine, her work, got to know each other..She is very centred, wise and very grounded person. Lots of knowledge. She told me about the diets she did and they way it was done, which was very important to me. She studied with a well known master in Iquitos. Tobacco is a serious medicine and you need to pick your tabacero wisely. I trusted myself and Merav so few weeks later I came for my first ceremony. After I drank the tea I knew I made the right choice and it was 100% confirmed after ceremony was finished. Merav is a great healer. Her ikaros and connection to the medicine is out of this world! We also did a diagnose prior ceremony so we would know what we need to work on. Since then I had 2 more ceremonies with tabacco and Merav in Iquitos, and then she moved to Cuzco. Oh well.. If you are seeking for a deep spiritual healing and cleanse of your body and soul, remove blockages , be more grounded and find your centre- tabacco is a great healer and Merav is a truly wonderful person to introduce you to it. I believe that the work she does is pure, comes from her heart with lots of love and care.

  • Review for Iboga Tree - Healing House

      The real happiness...

    I used to be a ‘man of success’. Good job, fast life, pretended happiness. I did not notice that, day by day, step by step, in silence, I was losing contact with what really matters. Finally, I lost myself. Insomnia, depression, anxiety and fear of next day became my reality for months, almost two years. Looooong years in black and white, with no hope. I decided to undertake iboga treatment. Now colours are coming back. What’s the most important, hope is back. Self-esteem is being rebuilt. Things, like blocks, are coming back to their places in proper order, click by click. Tranquility inside. Tomorrow: why not? Yes: why, the hell, not?! Iboga Tree is the place. You land in and take off from Alicante/Spain. Adam and Edyta meet you at the airport and drop you off there after the treatment. Between these two points in time you are safe and perfectly taken care of. It takes about a week. You get everything you need (and you are even not aware of) before, during and after the process. Permanent presence of the hosts. Friendly support and care in all terms. Professionalism and very high standards. One more thing: I got the treatment together with my life partner. I still cannot tell what it did to us, but we both feel it was good. We are closer, deeper; quality of our relationship has risen. Iboga definitely works for the couples. The place itself is beautiful. Surroundings, accommodation, food, para-medical care – everything friendly and supporting. Thank you, Guys. John S.

      Thank you for powerful transformation!

    Thank you Adam and Edyta for a wonderful care during and after iboga treatment. For the attention and an amazing feed ;) After the treatment, and a week rest-recovery, I feel much lighter (about 100kg less off my arms and the head) and see clearer. I released loads of difficult emotions during the session and I’m much more in myself. I can recommend iboga to anyone struggling and not seeing the way out, anyone going in circles with same issues over and over, playing in their head same drama and slowly drowning in the ‘always present’ past with no chance to live, and to look forward to the future. Adam’s and Edyta’s center is based in the scenic area, beautiful mountains in Spain, which is an additional asset to the treatment and time spent afterwards. And what’s most important for me, the hosts offer very professional(!) – medical, homely and friendly – care. Julia S.

  • Review for Pachamama Temple

      Compassionate Healing

    This was my second retreat experience in Peru. Pachamama Temple provided an incredibly safe and compassionate space for deep healing. The maestros and maestros are family, which is felt the moment you step through the gates and are welcomed with heart felt hugs. I felt supported by the community created. I truly believe that I was able to explore the deepest places in my being (consciousness and subconscious) to bring new awarenesses in my life because of the space held by Panchamama Temple. My gratitude to Dominic for having vision with Maestro Rosa, to each maestro who shared there gifts and our facilitor, Erik, who always effortlessly supported this process with grace. If this is your 1st aya experience or you are looking to go deeper with this medicine I would highly recommend Pachamama Temple.

  • Review for Blue Morpho Shamanic Ayahuasca & Sacred Plant Retreats

    Ryan   March 17, 2017

      Learning to love unconditionally and let go of control....

    I had no expectations before going to the beautiful and sacred retreat deep in the Amazon. All I knew was that Papatua was calling me to him and brought me to Blue Morpho. From the moment I was accepted into my program, I felt taken care of and safe. This feeling was only further reinforced with the careful care and instructions Malcolm and all of the Blue Morpho family gave us from the moment we arrived to the moment they saw us on our way. The experience itself is unlike anything I could have imagined - deeper, harder, more painful, and more beautiful than anything I could have imagined. Throughout the entire process, there was support and guidance (whether to breathe, to cry, and - most importantly for me - to simply let go) to help navigate the process. Don Alberto and his son were all around us throughout each ceremony and they were careful to push our limits but not let us fall away. It has been about 7 months since I returned from the Amazon and I know I will return - but the lessons of loving unconditionally and letting go are still being unveiled to me. If you feel aya calling you, I cannot think of a safer and more beautiful environment and body of people to work with than that of Blue Morpho.

      Awakening - 2 week Shamanic Dieta and Ceremony

    I just want to say in deep gratitude that my experience at Canto Luz was so powerful, deeply profound, and more than I could have asked for. Thank you for providing a safe and deeply conscious space in which I could do the work and healing I needed to do with so much love and support. Reyna is absolutely one of the most powerful women I have met- her Ikaros held so much love, healing and power. She is such a sweet, warm, caring, and nurturing person, and very clearly is connected to source. Mariya holds a powerful space, and has much to offer in the way of guidance, healing, experience, consciousness. Her Ikaros are also beautiful strong and the combination of this female energy makes the space sacred and the ceremonies strong, yet nurturing and empowering. All of the volunteers and those who work there are kind, funny, and so supportive. I feel that I walk away having gained a community. The tree houses were incredible, and the flower baths absolutely divine! La Medicina, Mother Aya was powerful and strong, yet gentle and true. She showed me and told me what I needed to know. Again I felt so deeply supported in the deep healing work I needed to do in my Dieta and Ceremonies. I felt so much love from the rain forest, from the people around me, and these two incredible women. I am forever changed and grateful! And cannot wait to come back. If you are feeling called on this journey- Go to Canto Luz! <3

      Healing at Pachamama Temple

    Wow. What an amazingly inspiring, enlightening, and life changing trip. I may have done ten years worth of healing in one week. No amount of psychology or rehab could have have achieved what this trip to Peru has. I did some intense deep healing. Ayahuasca has opened my eyes to so many layers of my existence. Peeling away the layers that no longer serve me. Shining a light on the darkness and empowering me to embrace it and sit with it so I can free myself from it and move forward towards healing and growing into my true authentic self. I let go of so much pain. Pain I have been carrying with me for years. Words cannot describe what I went through these past ten days and the beauty and healing I underwent. . Don't get me wrong, it was not all pretty lights and fluffy clouds, I faced alot of my issues and traumas and stared them dead in the eyes. I went to battle and can honestly say I won. It was not easy, but growing never is. At some points I thought I may have been losing my mind. But I wasn't. It's all part of the process. I left feeling many emotions but mostly, I am much lighter and more equipped to deal with life. My time at Pachamama Temple was a very sacred experience that I will carry with me for eternity. I met some wonderful people that I hope to have in my life forever. Not to mention the structure of the temple itself is remarkably done. A true place of love and healing. I want to thank Pachamama Temple, Dominik and Eric for making this opportunity very real. I felt truly and utterly supported by both of you. The amazing family of shamans for their loving and inviting personalities and their beautifully healing icaros. To all the workers there that made sure the temple is clean and their smiles everyday. To the cooks who worked tirelessly to make sure we had food in our bellies. To all my friends and family who have stood by me all these years and never gave up. And most of all, all the people that donated to my cause and made this trip possible! From the depths of my heart thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

      Discover your truth

    Before even meeting the team, or making the life changing acquaintance with ayahuasca, I could feel I was in a place that is made up of one thing and one thing only, and that is love. The entire Blue Morpho experience allows a person to feel completely comfortable, safe and at ease to begin a journey of healing and discovery. Every small detail of what I went through - of making the journey to Iquitos, of meeting the most amazing team on earth, of being guided through the ceremonies, of being given the wealth of insights just by being there and by awakening to the divine force within through the medicine - was filled with love and understanding. The camp and facilities are amazing. Everything is put in place so that visitors only have one thing to do and that is to relax and enjoy the healing of the beautiful, magical yet oh so real and sometimes challenging ayahuasca medicine. At Blue Morpho you discover your truth, and you can discover the universe of wisdom and the universe itself. It was incredibly hard for me to leave after a week of receiving and finding divine love. But the most amazing thing is that you get to take it all with you. Because the love and the medicine never leave.
