About This Center

Tierravida is located on Yarina Cocha lake in a 19 hectare Permaculture Farm.  We facilitate traditional Shipibo Medicine Retreat plant Dietas with many medicinal plants,  as well as outdoor education and connection to the earth. We strive to be sustainable in everything we do, from our wood we source directly from shipibo villages sustainably harvested, to our sawdust composting  biochar outhouses.  We have many maintained trails for hiking, swimming and canoeing in the lake. On our Permaculture Farm we grow Cacao, coconuts,  Mangoes, Bananas, Papayas, Macambo, Yuca, and more as well as reforestation such as mahogany Cedro and medicinal plants such as sangre de grado Copiaba aho sacha,  bobinzana, Ayahuasca, Chakruna and more.  

A beautiful place full of cheerful people willing to share their knowledge of Amazonian Medicine. For serious Healing and Learning.

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.
