About This Center

Takiwasi general objective is to revalue the human and natural resources of traditional medicine, and to develop a true therapeutic alternative to face drug addiction.

The Takiwasi team invites you to share a deep human experience through a "Personal Evolution Seminar" lasting three weeks. This experience is unique and pushes into the sources of ancestral knowledge of the healers in the Amazonian forests of Peru.

Trained in traditional and modern disciples of healing, Takiwasi team offers a stimulant company, responsible and reassuring to those who wish to engage in an authentic quest of the meaning of life.

Takiwasi offer Addictions Treatment in a unique therapeuthic model along with DIETS (spiritual retreat). Takiwasi's therapeutic model is innovative, unique in its field. It is characterized by a combination of psychological therapy and conventional medicine with the traditional medicine of the Amazon. Its model of treatment can be compared with a tripod based upon three therapeutic supports that compliment and mutually reinforce one another. A "diet" in Takiwasi center is a temporary retirement in the jungle, usually 10 days in isolation, ritualized ingestion of so-called "master plants" accompanied by a special diet and strict psychical and psychological norms.

In this way, a special contact with nature is created, and dedicated to a physical and energetic depuration that eliminates substances that block sensibility. This favors dream production, remembrance of past situations and experiences that weren’t well-processed, deep introspection and ultimately, an encounter with the "inner master".
