About This Center

The retreat house is located on the edge of the village, overlooking a soccer field and the jungle. Within 10 minute walk are river Ucayali, qebrada (jungle creek for swimming) and the jungle trails. A great advantage of location is that you will have an opportunity to experience rural village lifestyle, go to a market early in the morning, visit local restaurants and interact with the villagers.

For your safety, there is a hospital in the village as well as a small police station.

We have 3 bedrooms equipped to host 6 guests. The sleeping quarters include bunk beds and shelving units. In addition, there is a guest house for four more persons. Each bed will be protected with an individual mosquito net for a bug-free peaceful rest.

The 8×7 meter living room serves as the studio for yoga classes, workshops and ceremonies. There are plenty of hammocks in the house and in the yard for lounging and napping. The house is well protected with mosquito netting from all sides for a bug-free space. Large windows face East so that you can enjoy a beautiful sunrise while meditating or doing your morning yoga practice.

We are focused on sustainability and environmental awareness. All biodegradable waste is composted, we minimize waste and recycle to a possible extent. Please focus on leaving no trace, while visiting the village.

We are currently developing sources of sustainable energy to provide solar-powered electricity for the house. We also have been educating the villagers about sustainability, recycling and waste management. Our long-term dream is to develop sustainable waste-management system for the village.

The house is fully equipped with washroom, sink and shower. There is fresh dining area overlooking the backyard. There is a well, with a shady lounging area by its side, where you can have some quiet relaxing time or have a refreshing bucket shower.

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

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.
