Katari Center

About us

We would like to offer a platform to people, regardless of race, up-bringing or believes, that allows for individual growth at a physical, spiritual or emotional level, through the use of traditional medicinal plants.

May peace and happiness spread around the world in difficult times like little lights- all in alignment with Mother Earth (Sachamama in Quechua language) and the Universal Forces, developing a new consciousness and making use of new technologies. As a base or a bridge we appreciate and apply the traditional instruments indigenous people of the Amazon have acquired and developed over thousands of years. Their cosmovision is tightly connected to their environment in a big circle of live. That’s why it is one of our tasks as well to cherish and protect the rain forest, home to numerous animals and plants which serve in so many different ways:

The Amazon forest is the biggest jungle in our world.  Approximately half of all rain forest in the world lies in  the area of the Amazon (6.74 million km2). Many parts are primary growth rainforest and only recently humanity is realizing its importance on the global climate.

"something has been deblocked, has transformed…" J. Sanz "harmonised by this magical jungle that received and embraced me lovingly"

Venue Highlights

Katari is an Indigenous Plant Medicine Center, nested in the middle of the virgin Amazonian jungle, which caters to people in search of deep personal growth at a physical, mental, and spiritual level.

Many of our guests have experienced:

Purification, regeneration and harmonisation on corporal and mental dispositions
Clarity about life path and new perspective on personal issues
Emotional liberation, renovation of vital energies
Healing of sub acute or chronic diseases
Awakening of own spiritual strength
Connection with nature inside and outside
Facing ones fears or other types of blockage
A new sense of peace and happiness to their life.
Since everybody disposes of his or her own nature, there is no general result of the programme – they are as various and colourful as the persons that attend them

      Transformation and deep tuning

    10 amazing days at Katari changed my life forever. I've communicated with my inner being, with the jungle and spirit teachers. Learned how to love my self, what universe is and how to walk through my life with steady step. Learned not to be afraid of the change, to embrace the infinite evolution and expansion of life. Nature surroundings in Katari are beautiful. It's not the deep jungle, although you very much feel the power of floresta - amazing forest with beautiful hills, river, tracking paths. Tambos are simple, but comfortable, and feed is tasty. Except if you are on a planta dieta. Then it is what it has to be. :)
