About This Center

Set amongst the sheer energy of the primal rainforest, a place where one can truly rejuvenate body, spirit and soul, our Shamanic Family (The Galindos) and supportive community facilitate all states of spiritual cleansing, healing and teachings in an authentic, loving and safe family environment.

Our philosophy is our name: Pura Medicina — which focuses only on cleansing, healing, acting with love and teaching through love and light. Additionally, the pure love of the family, the deep connection to nature, and our positive and supportive environment make the camp in itself Pure Medicine.

With their reputation of pure love and care, Pura Medicina continues to bring light into our hearts by providing a safe, supportive and authentic space for healing, growth and profound transformations.

We invite you to experience beautiful, cleansing and transforming ceremonies with Maestro Gumercindo Galindo, Maestro Don Roldon Galindo, Don Roldon’s wife, Gertrudes Galindo and supported by the entire Galindo Family. Our Shamanic Family has over 80 years of combined experience curing and teaching with Ayahuasca and other plant medicines.

We are formerly known as La Familia Medicina and the Galindos along with volunteers are currently embracing a new future as Pura Medicina. Those who have already experienced an Ayahuasca retreat with La Familia know the family’s unshakeable dedication to their work with the medicine and know that as one comes to the center as a guest, they leave as a member of the family.

Pura Medicina views Ayahuasca as a gift to humanity and we look forward to sharing this important and life changing journey with past and future guests.

We offer 9 day retreats with 5 Ayahuasca ceremonies, medicinal tree bark ceremonies, shamanic dieta, optional tobacco ceremony in addition to daily yoga classes, art therapy, group circles and a library of spiritual literature.

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.
