      Excellent Place to Retreat

    I stayed at La Casa Pachamama for thirty days to complete a dieta with the master plant, ayahuma. This plant is little known in the anthropological literature, so I was delighted to make acquaintance with this powerful teacher, and to receive guidance from a curandero as kind and knowledgeable as Manuel. Manuel and Oana were very accommodating, and had the goodness to allow me to extend my stay beyond my financial means in order to allow me to complete the full length of my dieta. The location is beautiful. The food was good and plentiful (gracias, Manuel). The kambo healing is a must-try, and Manuel is a skillful facilitator of ceremonies. Their ayahuasca is not too strong, and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a gentle (relatively gentle) experience of this magical plant medicine. - Adam David Ryan

Why Retreat?

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

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth

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.
