Maloca Viva

About This Center

Fully embraced by the Amazon Forest and by the magic symphony of the sounds of nature, at Maloca Viva visitors can allow themselves a genuine experience of integration and living together, distance themselves from daily concerns and deepen their search for self-knowledge.

We organize and host events that seek to combine spirituality and sustainable ecotourism in the largest forest of the planet, including meditation retreats, yoga, courses, experiences and workshops, as well as many other activities.

      One of the most amazing places you will ever visit

    I have been to Maloca Viva 3 times already and every time is a life-changing experience in its own right. What Marcelo and Bruno have created is nothing short of being a truly beautiful spot in every aspect. If you are looking for a place where you can reconnect with nature and yourself, you have found the right location. Whether you choose to just hang out all day in your hammock, work hands-on on their own small plantation/garden, swim in clear Amazon water, meditate, take trips into the jungle or go dance to local music in the village, you are sure to have a blast. Once you have been to Maloca, you are sure to come back. Trust 4th trip is already in the planning. P.S.: Make sure to experience what it means to take a boat ride at night on the Amazon river and gaze at the Milky Way. It's a moment you will never forget.

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
