About This Center

We are a Shipibo Shamanistic Center on Yarina Cocha Lake in Pucallpa Peru, in the Shipibo Heartland, on a 19 hectare permaculture Rainforest farm with lots of room for exploring. We also offer ecological and cultural trips into the Rainforest, as well as teach Earthskills. Our remote location is near to the largest Rainforest reserves in the world. We have a NGO Ni Bero, Seed of the Rainforest and Eye of the Rainforest. Dedicated to conservation and reforestation of ecosystems, and permaculture, as well as opening peoples eyes to the consciousness of the forest. We are partly owned by Shipibos, and work with Shipibo female and male shamans in their homelands of the Ucayali river. Tierravida means living earth, that the earth is alive and gives us life. Benxote is the Shipibo healing arts using Ayahuascha and other medicinal plants.

      Quiet, peaceful Retreat

    This is a peaceful retreat with lovely Tambos scattered throughout the jungle. Some close to the "action" that is kitchen, lake and caretakers...some much further in.. alone and quiet. Each has its own positive features. There are single size and family size. Adam and his family are ready to customize your stay.

Why Retreat?

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

To drop deep into the practices and connect with my true nature... Alison

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.
