Sinchi Runa

About us

Sinchi Runa is an intimate ayahuasca and master plant retreat center, as well as a family and student home. We are dedicated to provide and nurture a safe, compassionate, and sacred space in which one can experience genuine healing and spiritual awakening. Our mission is to help each individual reconnect with their true essence by awakening the capacity of wisdom that resides within their heart.

Sinchi Runa is leaving the Peruvian rainforest from January 2019 to hold retreats, dietas and 1 month in depth processes in Portugal and around Europe. We return to Peru in September 2019. The ones who feel called to join us are very welcome to write to us for more information. 

All of our services are uniquely customized to nurture and serve each and every individual according to their own understanding and needs. Undergoing a process at Sinchi Runa is a remarkable opportunity in unveiling and realizing the very nature of existence; an opportunity to reconnect to and discover the truth and freedom of who one truly is.

Sinchi Runa is a word in Quechua that means “Warrior of light”. For us, true healing means awakening the healer that resides within each individual. Awakening the inner master and intelligence allows us to reach the source of all healing. Once this inner source is found, we become the masters of our own existence, capable of meeting each challenge with wisdom, grace and ease.

With seven years of in-depth experiential work as a center, and more than twenty years with ayahuasca and a variety of shamanic master plants and natural entheogens, we specialize in master plant dietas, short or long term treatments for addiction and depression, deep immersion processes and intensive retreats. We merge the wisdom and direct experience brought by the plants with invaluable Vedic teachings through Ayurvedic healing, astrology, lectures, mantra and spiritual practices such as pranayama, meditation and Hridaya hatha yoga.

When I “finally” became this love, I understood what I am. Who we are. I went to the place where we go when we leave this body, and I looked “death” in the eyes and I bowed. An abundance of love filled me to my core, and as light was streaming through my veins, darkness and all that is not me, dissolved. I was then blinded by light, my light. Shooting up through me, protecting me, embracing me. This light is here in eternity. At Sinchi Runa they teach you how to walk again. You do the footwork yourself, you take the steps, and when you fall you learn how to get up, by yourself, but you’re not alone. You’re being compassionately taught and guided from the purest and most honest place. I’m forever grateful to have met these beings, who all in their own ways has changed my life and taught me everything I hadn't been taught about this universe, love and compassion. Teachings far beyond my imagination, beyond words.

    The retreat was at the very least life-changing. Situated at the most charming of places with the house full of love and warmth, this was a great place. We were taken care of by kind individuals who most certainly knew what they were doing, guided through the experience as smoothly as possible. The food was delicious and the attention to all our needs, explanations, all the Q&A was extraordinary. It is certainly my hopes to find myself with these people and in this situation in the future and wish anyone to have this experience. Thank you Sanango, Mikaela and Kameron. Much love xxx

      1 month ayahuasca and plant dieta immersion

    Sinchi Runa was my first experience with staying at a retreat center and work with the plant medicines and my self. For me it was very important that the shaman (Sanango) have a lot of experiences with his work and the place was peaceful and without too many people. I appreciated my first stay in the private room where it was important so seek inside and be silence. Not too much talking and more focus on one self. The friendly staff came always with fresh tasty healthy food and there was meditation and yoga which was optional. After 5 days it was time to go deeper into to jungle and stay in a secluded hut close to a beautiful river (Shamanic diet). It was so amazing to experience the changes within each day gives. It was like a dream to wake up each morning in this beautiful and relaxed jungle with the sounds from the birds and the other animals. The saunas with medicinal plants was really a lot of good experiences. Personally it boost my experience in total to a higher level. Sanango was may the best shaman you could expect as a first time seeker. His incredible wisdom, understanding and relaxing feeling about the present moment make everything so much brighter and easier. I like the combination with the Vedic philosophy. It helps me to get a better understanding. The place is so welcome and you already feel like a part of a new family from the entrance. So lovely. It was the best decision in my whole life. So if you want a beautiful life - this place is a good place to begin with. :) Come, feel and experience the love. Namasté

      In awe of this place, these people.

    What can I say. Words cannot describe my stay at Sinchi Runa. When I arrived I started to feel a lot of different frustrations, I didn't have the feeling that I could choose if I participated in for example the sauna that they had prepared when I arrived, I felt pushed into it but kept it for myself. After that a series of things happend that left me frustrated, things didn't go the way I thought they would and things were not like I had imagined (like not having a toilet/shower in my tambo and the mattress aggravated my back pain). Even though I know the trap of expectations, I felt right into it, pretty hard...and (silently) I blamed Sinchi Runa for not meeting up to it. Luckily there was the silent, accepting force of nature that surrounded me when I was at my lovely Tambo. I was in awe of this place! Within a day or 2 it teached me to just let go. I really felt taken care of, by nature but also by the people of Sinchi Runa...they radiate love. Mikaela (whom I deeply respect; she really does embodies an angel) has helped me beyond words and partly without even saying a word. When I looked into her eyes (in a time of deep personal drama) I could see the ''silent knowing'' that I also felt in the presence of Sanango. It felt very clear and profound like there is a deeper understanding of life that I seem to be able to experience for seconds, maybe hours..but they seem to live it, understand it. I have to say, that is good company to have around when you truly want to understand those things. They helped me to learn to take responsibility for my own life, my own made-up drama, in a honest but loving way. At some point I was almost crying for their attention, for help, they stayed with me but refused to feed my emotions of helplessness. By not feeding it, it starved a lonely death. I suddenly saw how I (partly) created drama in my life to gain attention; to be seen....and how painfully funny that somehow was. I learned to love and help myself and stop expecting that others will do it for me. I gained a lot of power from that. What I want to say is this: if you'll go to this place, big chance some negative feelings will surface, maybe also toward Sinchi Runa. I just want to invite you to not immediately take it out on the people of Sinchi Runa but try to take a honest look inside and just sit with that negative feeling. Maybe you are a little bit like me and you have some personal shit coming up to the surface, and the event that you are mad/frustrated about is just a way to ventilate those (old) emotions. Everything I've blamed them for when I was in my dieta, I laugh about it now...all that stayed is a deep feeling of gratitude. Much thanks to Sanango, Mikaela, Page and Kameron who all helped me with so much kindness. I hope to see them again some time!

      You get what you need, not what you want

    This has been a common theme for me throughout my journeys with Ayahuasca (and in life in general). Every time I think I know what needs to happen, something much better and more useful occurs. This was the case at Sinchi Runa. I was completely thrown off by not being able to control anything from the time I ate a meal to when the sessions were and everything in between. This was necessary to break down my barriers and begin the deeper work that can happen for me only in a place of letting go. Sanango and Mikaela are able to somehow figure out what each person needs on a personal level. From my first consultation it was like Sanango already knew what would happen and looking back on that meeting I can see with positivity that he is divinely guided. I cannot imagine a scenario where someone would leave after a dieta and not be changed for the better. Whether it feels good or not, the change deep in the structure of your soul is sure to bring true joy to any who seek to visit this special place...Oh and the food is incredible (after the dieta:))!

      el lugar adecuado si estas buscando mucho más que una simple experiencia

    En Sinchi Runa encontré personas con mucha experiencia y conocimiento, pero sobre todo honestas y comprometidas, conocedoras del gran potencial de las plantas maestras y del papel que estas pueden jugar en el despertar de la consciencia. Todo el trabajo que se realiza en el centro se hace desde la empatia, el amor y la responsabilidad, sin dogmatismos ni prejuicios.NO es un lugar indicado si solo buscas una experiencia "lúdica" con las plantas, pero SI es un lugar muy apropiado si pretendes profundizar en tu autoconocimiento o estas pasando por una adicción, un problema emocional o espiritual. Las plantas maestras tienen un potencial muy grande, no puedes imaginar hasta donde pueden llegar si no has tenido contacto con ellas, el acompañamiento de Sanango y su equipo hacen que ese potencial alcance su máxima expresión, con total seguridad y siempre arropado con todo mucho amor y comprensión, lo que hacen que la experiencia alcance todo su potencial sanador y de apertura de la consciencia. El lugar apropiado si de verdad quieres o necesitas conectar con la raíz.

      Came back 3 times! Life changing experience every time!

    I first came to Sinchi Runa in 2013 to do a shamanic diet, and it was a completely life changing experience thanks to the plants and their wisdom, but above all thanks to Sanango, the shaman, that guided my process to help me find my own truth. I've met many shamans and guru's in my life and it's not easy to meet someone that is really real, guiding through compassion and a higher understanding. I came back one year later for another diet and this April I visited the center for the third time. I'm usually very sceptic towards ayahuasca centers, especially since the tourism around this plant has increased and South America is full of fake shamans. I was lucky to find Sinchi Runa, it's is a place with real people that together with the shaman dedicate their lives to plant healing and the search for truth. This is not just a place where you go to have a one-time ayahuasca trip, actually, if that's what you're after you shouldn't come at all. Instead, Sinchi Runa offers a true healing journey through a higher understanding of yourself, the universe and the reality of the world. I highly recommend it to any true spiritual seeker!

      A challenging experience

    This was not a healing experience for me at Sinchi Runa. While I was here I felt pressure to drink the medicine when it did not feel right. The shaman was also absent many times, and I didn't feel like I had the opportunity to share why I was truly there with him. My voice did not feel heard, when I said I didn't want to participate further, this did not feel ok. There was lots of confusion around money, I feel like they were taking advantage of me financially while many other participants were there as volunteers and staying there for free. Even though I did work like the other volunteers, I was charged alot of money where as the volunteers paid little or in some cases nothing. Getting my belongs back from them was a very difficult process as well. In some ways maybe ayahuasca isn't the right medicine for me, but I did not feel supported while being here. I'm still processing my time there, and would not recommend this center." S.A                                                 ***** REPLY FROM CENTER *****             Dear S.A, We are sorry to read the review you left of the experience you had with us 4 1/2 years ago. We hope you are able to understand that yours was a very particular case as well as the initial agreements of your treatment and the responsibility we had towards both you and your parents. There was a great incoherence between your own will and story with that of your parents which caused problems during your time here and we did our best to handle the situation with care and respect towards all parts. We feel that this, in combination with your expectations, did not go together with the work we do at the center, resulting in a troublesome process for you as well as for us. Further, as a center we had inconveniences and difficulties with you interrupting the processes of others while not respecting the rules and guidelines of the delicate work and healing done through the center. On occasions we had to confront you with this and unfortunately it created conflict. After your process and for many years now, we have improved the filters before accepting people for treatments to assure that the applicant is truly seeking what we are offering. The processes we support are always through the volition of the participant themselves and this most importantly includes the work with the master plants. The willingness of the participant is the most important criteria in being able to enter a ceremony or diet with us and the few times you participated it was always with your consentment. The work that you refer to in your message is strategically therapeutic and consists of gardening and connecting with the earth. Our few students/volunteers have gone through many months of deep process themselves before being able to apply for a work exchange or student position. Apart from gardening, they are responsible for a multitude of tasks related to accommodations, workshops and managing the stay of the residents. The cost for the processes is obviously higher than the cost of the student/volunteer position, otherwise the economic management of the center would be unsustainable. The cost for our treatment programs are higher than the psycho spiritual immersions, since they require more attention and work on the part of the center. We hope that you can understand that the difficulties in interrupting your treatment came from the agreement we had with your parents to collaborate with a safe return for you. There were many complications stemming from not being able to find a solution for all parties as to where you would go next, and as a result, prolonged the process. Because of the characteristics of your treatment and diagnosis, we always had to consider your personal security first and foremost. Which also includes the subject of your belongings that were returned in full before your departure. We are sorry for not having been able to collaborate or support you in a way more suitable to your circumstance. We did our best to respect the agreements with you and your relatives in this delicate case and to come to an agreement that felt right and safe for all sides. We ask for your understanding and wish that we could have been of more help. Your process was a learning experience for us and you are still very present in our hearts. We hope that you have been able to find a treatment and circumstance more suitable to your wishes and needs. With love, Sinchi Runa                                                 ***** REPLY FROM PARTICIPANT *****             I have read the response and I feel I have been misunderstood. When I was in Sinchi Runa I was the person who was receiving their treatment, not my parents. They basically told me my parents wanted me to stay in and they kept me there. I was sad and cried every day. About ayahuasca I feel they don't understand I have a very sensitive body and it’s an extremely powerful medicine and I can not just drink it every now and then. it feels like they were telling me that they’re going to help me but they were not really. I was diagnosed with schizophrenia after this retreat. I was put on medication even injections and have had one hospitalization, after that, I stopped listening to anyone and started listening to my intuition and now the voices are gone, but that was just recently. No one in this world helped. I really just want to say that people shouldn’t trust shamans or even anyone too much. They should trust their intuition and their inner voice. Themselves basically. and shouldn’t listen to those who say I can heal you or fix you. About my Sinchi Runa diagnosis, you gave me a real medical diagnosis after your isolations and little food. I was alone so much I started hearing voices. very dangerous. About me interrupting other people, you interrupted my life. Five years now I did nothing just trying to fix this. Now I’m in a safe place because now they’re gone. They were very strong. There’s something talking to me every day again but I fought a huge war to be myself again. About you not accepting just anyone since my experience why didn’t you let me leave? I wanted to leave. Maybe I wasn’t fit. I knew sinchi runa was wrong for me. The only thing I learned was to trust my intuition because it took me out of hell. You gave me so much anxiety when I was eating I had panic attacks in my room. I’m very sensitive. yoga and meditation I stopped doing them after the retreat because it had a bitter taste. Not everyone is the same. It’s not my parent's fault. I’m the one who went there with my own will it’s not up to my parents to organize my journey as you say. When you didn’t like what I decided you went and took my parents word after convincing them of many things and you said it’s what your parents wanted. My parents said that sinchi runa are the ones who said that I should stay. They convinced us that’s why we canceled your ticket. About the concern over my safety and where to go next.. you put me in me danger and sickness. There ’s still residue. voices come sometimes but it’s 90% gone. I was hit. In my country wearing my cultural dress and doing very normal things made the voices go. It took me four and a half years to discover this. You didn’t return my things in full before my departure. You still have my electronics. Thanks.

      Heart-opening, Mind-blowing, Life-saving. Sanango is a truly compassionate and wise Shaman, Healer, and Teacher.

    I came to Sinchi Runa to safely discontinue the prescription benzodiazepine drug Valium after being on it for a couple months, and to stabilize and heal following some traumatic experiences earlier in the year. However, I received much, much more than that. The drug dependance was a significant problem, but it was only the 'outer layer of the onion', so to speak. Underneath this surface layer were rotting layers of unresolved grief and/or trauma and related emotional and psychological pain that needed to be uncovered, processed, and worked through. There was no quick-fix magic pill to effectively resolve the state I was in. The only way out was thru. Following a 2-week detoxification and cleansing period I was approached by the center's director, Sanango, and told compassionately but firmly, "You are prideful. You need to reconnect with nature and cultivate humility." To this I sincerely inquired, "What is pride?" To which he replied, "Pride is believing you are important and that your thoughts are the truth. Humility is realizing there is a lot more happening in the universe than what's going on inside your head." Previously I had never understood pride or humility in this way. He continued further with instructions, "You will be alone in a small hut in the jungle, and will be in solitude and silence for up to 5 weeks. There will be no speaking, eye contact, electronic devices, or reading allowed. You will be brought a small plate of unsalted rice and boiled plantains two times a day for your food. In addition, you will be drinking various plant medicines during this time. You need to confront yourself. Try not to escape yourself." And with this I was escorted by his apprentice to a beautiful secluded location in the jungle along a creek (which I used to bathe), oriented to a small hut containing only a small cot for sleep, and left alone only with some clothes (which eventually became unnecessary). There was truly nowhere to go, nothing to do, no one to speak with, and no one to be. I had no familiar comforts or escapes; none of the regular distractions to dull the discomfort or avoid the boredom. I was simply sitting in the middle of the jungle with myself for 5 weeks, nothing more. The first 2 weeks of this were extremely challenging. All the ugly feelings I had been covering up - the fear, anger, shame, loneliness, remorse, sadness, despair, hopelessness - erupted like a fiery volcano, and there were many occasions when I sobbed like an infant wailing in the middle of the night. In the midst of intense emotional and psychological pain, I really had to learn how to sit with myself, comfort myself, and love myself. In the most challenging moments I received unconditional love and skillful support from Mikaela and Sanango. After the first 2 weeks in solitude the heavy feelings gradually lifted, and were replaced by increasing peace, clarity, and optimism. At the end of 5 weeks I was clear; my mood was stable, and there were no more dramatic stories or 'problems' to tell about my life. On the 35th day, at the concluding consultation, Sanango commented, "It's marvelous the change that is occurring in you." Indeed, I felt that childhood had somehow returned to me, and that the entire world is seen new again through this lens. I learned many things from this experience. Our thoughts, emotions, beliefs, opinions, and preferences are like the clouds passing by in the sky; they come and go, come and go, come and go, never the same, always changing. Sometimes the clouds are bright and beautiful, and other times they are dark and ugly. Regardless of their shape, color, and character, they are not permanent and eventually pass. Even the most dreadful and destructive storms eventually end, and the glorious sunshine returns. Our lives are also like this. Sometimes life is pleasurable, other times it is painful; sometimes we have hope, other times despair; sometimes we're happy, other times sad; sometimes we're healthy, other times ill; sometimes we gain, other times lose; sometimes we're anxious, other times relaxed; sometimes we make the 'right' choice, other times we make 'mistakes'. Amongst all this change and shifting, the only certainty we truly have is that nothing remains the same and that 'this too shall pass.' Following this experience there remains a deep awareness and confidence that whenever the inevitable 'storms of life' arise, there exists inside of me the ability and courage to simply be with and observe, allowing it to pass by like the clouds in the sky. I don't need anything externally to be 'okay'. This is one of the most valuable and profound life lessons I have ever learned. Our western culture teaches us to avoid pain at all costs; to cover it up with more pills, more food, more exercise, more television, more stimulation, more work, more money, more possessions, more relationships, more hobbies, more (fill in the blank). But all these things are only pseudo-escapes; they seem like effective strategies to avoid pain, discomfort, and/or emptiness, but they actually compound and complicate things. My sincerest gratitude to Sanango, Mikaela, Paige, and the entire Sinchi Runa family for the tremendous love, support, and guidance as I navigated through a very dark storm and period. You very likely contributed to saving my life, and giving me a fresh start and new opportunities.

      Life Changing

    I spent several months at Sinchi Runa participating in a series of dietas and ceremonies. To say the experience was life-changing is an understatement. I experienced profound healing from personal and military-related trauma and finally found a true sense of Self. I've been home from Peru since December and I still feel as though my process and the lessons continue to this day. Sanango is a gifted shaman and Mikaela is an absolute angel on earth. I cannot recommend them highly enough for your journey.

  • Clay Campbell   March 07, 2018

      Beautiful and life-changing experience!

    After sitting with many teachers, I still felt that something was missing from my journey and I found it at Sinchi Runa. Sanango is a true teacher who is steeped in the knowledge of master plants, transformation, and Vedic teachings. As a yoga practitioner/teacher, the Vedic aspect of Sanango's teachings was priceless. He really is a master at guiding you through your individual process and customizing it to help you find your truth. I was, and still am, amazed at the depth of his compassionate and firm guiding as I weaved through my process. IT WAS LIFE CHANGING. I will be coming back to Sinchi Runa as long as they are providing this powerful gift of teachings. The accommodations were perfect for what you are needing on your journey. The food is spectacular and the land has a deep healing energy that I have only felt in certain parts of India and high in the mountains of Colorado. I never felt pressured to do anything that did not benefit or enhance what I needed at that particular time. Having sat with many teachers, in different lineages, I can honestly say that this was the most profound experience of my life journey thus far and I will continue to return as often as I can. There is a true sense of caring at Sinchi Runa that provides a safe atmosphere to grow and heal, without giving off a "cult vibe", that I have seen in other lineages and retreats. The staff went above and beyond to make sure I had what I needed to arrive at Sinchi Runa and what I needed for my time there. Do yourself a favor and contact them, you will give yourself a great gift. If we do not take care of ourselves on this life journey, then who will? Thank you.

      An Amazing experience

    I will be not able to thank enough Sinchi Runa for all the help they provided me during a critical moment in my life. I have to say I was very doubtful if this retreat was ideal for me, but, after having so many great references from previous patients I took the decision to give it a go and I do not regret the decision. Prior to the retreat I did several questions and they were very kind to answer all my doubts and query's. Sinchi Runa and his team inspired me confidence during all the process. This retreat is healing and also educational, you will learn and discover things about yourself, about the universe and your current reality that you would never imagine in the wildest of your dreams. Highly recommended!

  • christin mellner   February 27, 2018

      Strongly recommend this center! Life-changing by opening my heart and life for love, compassion and healing.

    I can from the depths of my heart recommend this center for deep healing work with authentic and experienced shaman in a safely held space. This center has a unique touch and a truly and gentle way of meeting individuals and guiding them on their journey towards healing and greater understanding and connectedness.

  • Rhiannon Jane   February 17, 2018

      Your search is over and your journey just began.

    I'm so happy that you're reading this. You just found the best retreat center in Peru. Seriously. Safe, legitimate, powerful, and intimate (this is not an Ayahuasca tourist factory. Avoid those places.) My first Ayahuasca experience with Sanango was back in 2011 and ever since then, I've been traveling to wherever the heck he is in the world at least once or twice a year to attend retreats and continue my journey with him. As a result, my life is incredible and I couldn't be more grateful. As far as I'm concerned, Sanango saved my life. No, I never abused drugs, I wasn't depressed, and I didn't have anxiety. I was actually living what I believed was a good life! Unbeknownst to me, however, I was secretly suffering because I was disconnected from my heart and my true self. I was doing things that I *thought* were ok but were actually hurting me in serious ways. I was a very difficult nut to crack. I didn't even think I had a problem. I was just being curious because I found the whole Ayahuasca thing intriguing and I trusted Sanango so I kept coming back to do retreats. Once I committed to a proper 10-day process with Sanango, my life changed completely and for the better. Sinchi Runa is by far my favourite place in the whole world. Nowhere else have I been able to access so much inner peace and joy. Real peace and real joy. Not just the kind you talk about or imagine. I experienced it. I became it. Sanango showed me the way. Ultimately, you are your own healer so don't bow down before anyone who makes you feel lesser than them. Only teachers with sincere compassion and true understanding who don't take their silly human selves so seriously are worth following. Sanango is one of those great teachers. Anyone who has the opportunity to go to Sinchi Runa and sit with him in their lifetime is sincerely blessed. If you're considering taking this opportunity, I am so happy for you and I hope we get to cross paths while you're there. I trust Sanango and Sinchi Runa with my life. I am safe there. I thrive there. It's the best work I've ever done. It's the best money I've ever spent. Thank you Sinchi Runa. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I love you.

      Finding Truth

    The greatest gift I could have ever given myself was my decision to do a 3-month-process. I arrived with an idea, a concept of what I wanted. Now, I'm simply left with a feeling, an undeniable knowing, which guides me everyday. It was such a blessing to have found this place. If you are searching for truth, to heal, to free yourself, to open your heart, I highly suggest Sinchi Runa.

  • Anthony Chetta   December 28, 2017


    No matter what it is you’re wanting to accomplish - what insights you’re looking to obtain, what issues you may think you have and need to dissolve - Sinchi Runa offers the expertise, setting, staff, and support to allow this to blossom in a unique manner that is catered to with patience, attention, care and love based on individual needs. The 30-day process was completely transformative, simply because I finally allowed it to be. It is with much gratitude towards Sanango, Mikaela, the staff, the jungle and plants, and “myself” that I write this. Out of truth and a genuine desire to assist the individual in assisting themselves, without any facade or hidden agenda, the holistic and all-encompassing nature of services provided by Sinchi Runa make it my only recommendation to others and personal choice for continued exploration of who We are. ❤

  • Arely Garcia   December 13, 2017

      I was so pleased with my first experience, I came back for a second one

    Rated 5 stars not only for the wonderful experience, but the environment and compassionate nature of the the folks that make Sinchi Runa what it is...a place of self-discovery and understanding of this world. I didn't know what to expect going in, but once my treatment was completed, the results of the process was far more valuable and special than I could ever imagine. The first time I visited, I was in a pretty bad state in my life. I stayed a month, and came back to "my reality" with a sense of purpose and resilience to face almost any difficult situation life put in my way. I've just returned from my second visit to "check in", and now find myself aware of certain things in my life that I need to immediately change to live a more peaceful and authentic "me". Every time I visit Sinchi Runa, a layer of my "conditioned self" is revealed and I become a little more conscious of who I truly am. For all you truth seekers....this place is for you.

Why Retreat?

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

Desire to learn more meditation practices, spend more time in spiritual community. Heather

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present.
