About This Center

"When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need." - Ancient Ayurvedic Proverb

Amaru Spirit was formed with a single intention: to bring together the healing and cleansing of the body with herbs and plants, with the healing and cleansing of the soul with Ayahuasca. Ayahuasca is too often regarded as a magic bullet, tasked with the ability to cure and clean decades of spiritual and physical problems in a few days. Ayahuasca is a very powerful tool, but must be used in a holistic manner - as a part of a larger process of physical cleansing. This is our passion and calling.

"Enlightenment is the great and final disappointment, the dissolution of our egoistic fantasies and grand hopes." - Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

  •   I had an amazing experience at Amaru Spirit doing dieta

    Don Ernesto, the tabaquero was a powerful and kind shaman. Slocum, an American who runs the centre does so with the utmost integrity – a great guy. Accommodation and food are excellent. I drank with Luis Vasquez in Tachawasi. He was excellent with powerful medicine.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I go on retreat to remember who I really am. And I remember that I am alive, Deryk

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
