About This Center
In 2015 I was invited to finally embrace the path that I was pulled into at the age of 22. The plant medicine path. The Ayahuasca path. My spiritual path.
At 22, I was in a terminal phase of severe depression from which I had been suffering from since I have a memory.
I spent 3 years living and training with indigenous shamans ( curanderos) from the Amazon in the city of Iquitos in my native country of Peru.
I deeply understand the responsibility of working with the spirit of the plants. Therefore, I am not alone on this path.
As a Shaman, my priority is always to deliver the best to people to help them to reconnect, AWAKEN, HEAL and TRANSFORM and this is how the TAITA INTI ORGANIZATION STARTED.
TAITA INTI is not yet a physical a retreat centre but a place to connect people. It’s a place to create bridges between shamans. It“s a place to share and gain collective growth. In TAITA INTI we understand that for every person that awakens or heals it’s not just a healing of the individual that takes place but a healing and awakening for the entire collective of our planet. We are aware of the COMPROMISE, COMMITMENT, and DISCIPLINE this path demands, and we RESPECT IT. On a spiritual path, a place where ego and competition should not take part in， but unfortunately exists.
We travel to different countries around the world (EU, ASIA AND SOUTH AMERICA ) to help people that cannot travel to have the opportunity to get in touch with our Amazonian Knowledge. to share it.
TAITA INTI”s mission is to MAKE A DIFFERENCE and CONNECT shamans with different backgrounds, stories, healing techniques and abilities and make them available for people in search of healing, knowledge or awakening. It’s a place to share what the universe has shared with us. With the LOVE, COMPASSION, and UNDERSTANDING that every person that comes in as a whole universe and a powerful soul with the capacity of creating healing and miracles by themselves.
We are all just vessels for the great mystery and the power of light and love to work through us.
Because the change begins inside.

I have spent 5 intense days with Naysha and the Taita Inti team. Working with plants is a deep and transforming experience, sometimes hard work; working with the right people is therefore very important. Naysha is a very experienced Shaman, she was always in charge of the situation despite the large number of participants. I felt safe all the time and loved how she mastered the energy during the ceremonies, including by singing Icaros which influenced much the visions i have received. The team members were very helpful, extremely kind and understanding and most importantly not judgemental. Two days after the end of the retreat I feel like a different person: i feel lighter, more aware and able to put things into perspective. With Ayahuasca I have experienced immense beauty and the death of my own ego; San Pedro brought up the darkness inside me and Kambo helped me release big (I hope) part of this darkness. Very grateful for the entire experience!!!

11-15 oct I visited my first Ayahuasca retreat at Enköping with Taita Inti. That was the best decision I´ve done in my life. I understand now why it is good to try not to have expectations. Because if you haven´t done it you can´t possibly imagine how it will be. I discovered clearly how all my experiences and emotions that have been too frightening to fully feel and integrate have been stored in my body and how they have continued to hurt me. I relived some of these and could connect them to where they belong. This gave me very important insights.The staff is amazing, so loving and supporting. They helped me and took care of me when I had a very hard time. Through the whole retreat there was always someone who checked to make sure you were ok and there were always people at hand if you needed help. That made me feel very safe. Ayahuasca works wonderfully and knows what you need the most. That also feels very safe. I am so happy that I started to walk this path. I wish it for everyone.

I recently had two ayahuasca ceremonies with Taita Inti. Everyone was super friendly, the food was good and the accomodation was cozy. I have no complaints. As for the experience itself I can only say that I arrived at the retreat with one outlook on life and I left with another. The medicine works.

I do Retreats with the Tainta Inti Team since two years now. They are really amazing. The last Retreat was a 12 days dieta, and this was, once again, lifechanging for me. They do their Retreats at very carefully selected locations with a lot of nature around. They provide nice organic food, wich is prepared with lots of love. And the Retreats are super organized. I always felt save and well guided, wich is very important for me. I can feel, that everyone does the work serious and with their heart, and also they are aware of their responsibility all the time. They create a warm, loving and welcoming atmosphere, where everyone can do wonderful development. I can highly recommend working with them and will for sure continue to do so. Many thanks from the bottom of my heart to all of you, Naysha, Celia, Darryl, Mae and Yuri for guidance and being so wonderfully open hearted. <3 Love Barbara

Almost one year ago I went to my first retreat; The Holy Trinity in Stockholm, hosted by the Tainti team. I had no expectations but remember feeling atleast it couldnt get worse. Now looking back, i’m so happy that I came in contact with just Naysha, realizing the potential danger when exposing yourself so vulnerble and open to such powerful medicine. Luckily the environment Tainti creates made me feel very safe, supported and always surrounded by very lovely people. The 5 trinity days changed me forever. I remember it felt like i was a different person afterwards. I always dissociated myself much, and the medicine made me see this, and helped me start with the integration process. Since, i’ve been with Tainti to two more retreats. Every cermony has been different, it always knows what I need and are ready for. The healing made possible for me through this I’m forever thankful for. And the incredible amount of self knowledge i received & continue too. So thank you thankyou thankyou Tainti for your amazing work, i wish eveyone could get the chance to experience this. ❤️Lots of love❤️ // Josephine S

It’s been quite a while since I took my first steps with the Sacred Medicine Plants, and last year I took my first 2 Dietas. In my personal experiences, a proper Dieta has not much to do with a „usual” Aya or San Pedro retreat. Or just the same way as to visit an island or to move there. During a powerful weekend or maybe 5 days retreat you can do really valuable journeys to your own consciousness – body, mind, and soul, and you can have wonderful and interesting observations, what are getable in some short trips. The Plants of the Sacred Medicine will be your excellent tour guides, and you can learn a lot about yourself and about the entire universe. But if you want to know yourself thoroughly, and seek for deep transformation, Dieta is your way. During a personalized and well built up Dieta you have a chance to meet your very own inner universe step by step, level by level. You proceed in your own direction and speed, and you can discover every hidden corner as deep as you wish to. During the Dietas you are not just guided by the Medicine Plants, but you can build up a lifelong alliance with Them. You get know Them on their different levels as you work with your personal Medicine every morning and night in an untroubled, super-quiet natural environment, and doing so, you are getting know yourself and your entire inner world on different levels. While cleansing your physical, mental, emotional, fine-energetical and spiritual body, the Plants are also sharing Their special qualities, power and wisdom with you. I found this kind of inner work very intense and deeply transformative, which required my strong intention, dedication and focus all way long. Therefore, to close out every noise of the “world” made my processes deeper and more complex. I can’t say it’s easy, but a very effective way to heal our hidden wounds behind our painful patterns. To see myself throughout the “eyes” of these wise and powerful Medicine Plants made me humbler, more compassionate, more cooperative, and so much more connected what’s here and now. I was a so-called lonely wolf or an ever-fighting amazon, without trusting really anyone. With my beloved plant-allies, I found peace, deep and honest connections, lovely company and a remarkable way to walk back “home”. If you considering walking this path, you must know something else. Besides the magical plants and your dedication, you need to have a safe environment to work in: a powerful, clean space provided by the wisdom, gentle strength, loving and caring attitude of the Shaman/s. Naysha, Celia and the Team behind them, provide exactly this to you. Their widespread expertise can help you a lot in different situations. For me, Naysha is like Mother Earth – immovably strong, yet gentle; loving and caring yet not “too much”; a powerful “healer”; an open-minded, honest, wise yet a real 3D Woman with a great sense of humor. Her voice is rich and strong, flowing through space and time, hold you safe even on the surface of the stormy ocean. Whilst Celia is The Spiritual Grandmother for me – carrying so deep and widespread knowledge and wisdom, power and love, that she doesn’t even need to say a word to teach you. There is a tangible natural bond between Her and Mother Nature through which She heals powerfully, and you just wondering the ageless strength of her soul. Her voice is like a subsurface stream, finds the smallest and deepest point in your inner world to be cleaned and healed. And if you’d still ask, yes, I definitely recommend You to work with Taita Inti Team.

It's been 10 months since I went to a Taita Inti retreat the first time, and all I can say is I'm mind blown at how much I've been learning every day since, and how much my life has changed for the better. The retreat venues are carefully chosen to be surrounded by lots of nature, the food is excellent and handmade from healthy ingredients and the shamans are very easy to feel comfortable around and will instantly feel like family. The medicine will for sure guide you through what you need to be working with, regardless if your intentions are long and intricate or short and more all-emcompassing just like mine was "teach me everything I need to know" - the medicine will help you. It will show you parts of yourself that you need to see, and it will do so in a way that you're never actually seeing stuff that you can't handle or aren't ready to process yet. It's all done in the perfect timing. I've been to a Holy Trinity and lately a Love Retreat. I highly recommend them both as Holy Trinity is what cannonballed me into having a massive spiritual awakening - from being a hardcore science based atheist, and it has changed my quality of life entirely for the better. The Love Retreat is INCREDIBLY recommended as it helped me process away a very painful and toxic attachment I had to a person I wasn't in a relationship with anymore and that kept hurting me daily and kept me depressed and stagnated in life. As soon as I asked the medicine to work on my unhealthy obsession, it got released and I got to see and understand why it had happened through an entirely different lens, and it all made perfect sense. From that point my heart just opened up and I could finally meet and connect with my soulmate that was waiting quite literally just around the corner without me being aware of it before due to my blinders in regards to this other person. Now we are in a relationship that is absolute bliss and everything I've ever wanted and I'm so SO grateful to Taita Inti for helping me release a trauma that had been following me for 5 years, in just a few days. Now I'm finally happy, and I'm finally FREE. You guys are absolute magic and I'll always be grateful for your fantastic team. ~Fernanda

Taita provided me a safe environment in a comfy farm in Switzerland I recommend them if you look for a close small circle (20people including organizers) you can trust The rules are flexible and the planned schedule is adapted through the journey The chef did a great job with food, keeping us hungry to get the best of the medicine I felt supported and was able to trust the plant once I surrendered and let go of my resistances I didn't expect the San Pedro ceremony will be so heart-opening I feel so grateful, thank you DARRYL GUY for his wise advice, I have a lot of respect for this shaman Naysha Silva is creating a light atmosphere, she surrounds herself with beautiful people and make sure everyone can do this work, accessible for sharing helpful advice Celia was leading the ceremonies with authenticity
Bart Harzing August 13, 2019
Me and my wife went to a retreat for the first time in may 2017, with another organisation. It was a mixed experience, but good enough to decide to go again and this time taking our 16 year old daughter with us. A relative recommended Taita Inti. So in october 2018 we went to the first Holy Trinity held in Sweden. The environment that was created by the team was professional and felt really safe because of the high level of knowledge of the shamans. We really appreciate that the main focus of the shamans is us working on ourselves, because that is our leading reason for attending the retreats. But of course we also enjoy the atmosphere, nice people, laughter and the feeling of connection between everyone there. For us as a family the retreats have helped us on every level possible, even the ones we didn't know existed. It´s hard being confronted with the parts of you that need work. As a family experiencing this together frustration can build up. Fights and discussions are more frequent after a retreat, which is only natural. At some points it can be really hard, but those are the fights that lead to great conclusions, to acceptance, to unity, to spirituality, to laughter; to the meaning of the word family.

I joined a 10 day retreat with TAITA INTI in april 2016. I think it was (one of) the first retreats TAITA INTI organized in Peru. The location was a rented space a boat ride away from Iquitos. The retreat was lead by 3 Peruvian shaman, 2 Curanderas and 1 Curandero. I had traveled solo in South America for over 5 months when I made the decision to join the retreat. I had an online friendship with one of the shamans that had worked in Europe with some friends. The retreat was also a short Dieta with Bobimsana, a beautiful plant with pink flowers, known to open your heart. So in addition to Bobimsana-Dieta, all together we had 4 ceremonies with Aya, an optional number of Kambo (I had 2) and a ceremony with San Pedro as an end to the Dieta. We followed a strict diet of 1-2 meals a day every other day, consisting only of lentils and rice, drink was water. I had a life changing experience during and after my journey in South America. The finale, the Dieta, the ceremonies, the connection with the amazing masterplants of Amazonas of course played a major role in this. I felt very well taken care of by the crew, and still, 3 years later, feel strongly connected to them and their healing, the whole experience. I will most probably choose TAITA INTI for my future ceremonies/ Dietas. Their heart is in the right place, working with light, but powerful enough to handle when its dark. I trust their knowledge, both intellectual and intuitive. I recommend everyone who is willing to put in the hard work to achieve life changing results with plant medicine to join a Dieta with Taita Inti.
Linda July 27, 2019
There are no words to describe the time spent with Taita Inti, it has completely changed my life! I am so happy and grateful ❤️ I was at the Dieta in Hungary, which was at a stunning location in the country side. The team is absolutely amazing, they showed me so much care and love and I felt supported the whole time. It didn’t feel like a retreat, it was more like family. I love you guys so much and I am so thankful for the amazing work you are doing. I will definitely be doing more retreats with you and hope to see you soon :) Much love, Linda

If you are not in the position to go all the way to South America and Peru but still want to try the Amazonian medicinal plants, I would highly recommend to join Taita Inti, Naysha and her fantastic team at a location more convenient to you. I am so greatful to have had the opportunity to attend both a weekend, a holy trinity and a 12-day dieta retreat. The team is experienced and they all have very big hearts. You will feel safe and well looked after while in the loving care of the team. You will receive the attention and help that is best suited for you. You are not just another participant. And since they all have their different specialities they are able to offer you a great variaty of medicines. Feel the rythm of Darryl's beating drum, listen to the sweet icaros of Celia's or the beautiful relaxing music playing. I found the retreat a perfect mix of tradition and modern ceremonies. They really want you to have a good retreat, and leave wiser than when you arrived. And although a diet of bland food is customary at any retreat, you are very lucky if you happen to attend a retreat where Yuri is rattling the pots, as he masters the art of making any meal into a pice of art for the eyes and heart.
Ugis Vilcans June 09, 2019
I've been to two retreats organised and held by Taita Inti. I'm grateful to have found them in my life. A lot of revelations, healing and wisdom besides that - humanity, openness, simplicity humour and trust are the words I would use to describe this team of plant medicine healers!

I really enjoyed the retreat hosted by Naysha, Mae and Miguel of Taita Inti. They created a beautiful healing atmosphere filled with love, music, attention and care. It was my first ceremony ever and I felt completely safe and secure in their hands. Miguel played guitar and other instruments which was so important for me for grounding. Mae and Naysha sang beautifully and were always there whenever I needed them. No one was left unattended or alone until they were finished with their journey. I would highly recommend you to do your aya retreat with this group!
Elizabeth Chen May 20, 2019
I had a 5 day Ayahuasca retreat in Bali with Naysha and her crew. Naysha the Shaman, Mae the Tarot card reader with healing powers, and Miguel the musician and Naysha's assistant in many ways. The environment was beautiful and safe. They are all so loving and caring. I had 3 ayahuasca ceremonies, each of them were difficult (not what I anticipated at all). Each night I was the last person to retire to my room (till 3-4am in the morning). They were all there holding my hand, helping me get through. Naysha and Mae did a lot of work on me so I could come out alright. I won't talk much about what I saw or experience because it was private and personal. All I can say is I am very grateful for the Shaman and her crew, without whom my experience couldn't have been so meaningful and rewarding. They dragged me back from the brink of despair and gave me confidence to go on from the 1st ceremony; they identified what was bothering me and gave me courage to get rid of them and cheered at my success and re-birth. The last night, when I was in total anguish, they gave me their healing powers and empathy, their shoulders to cry on and embrace to feel love. This has been a life changing experience and Naysha is in touch with us to help with our integration. I feel lucky that I met such wonderful people for my first Ayahuasca retreat!

I participated on Taita Inti's holy trinity retreat which was hosted in Switzerland. It was not the first time I joined Taita Inti and again I had a wonderful experience and can highly recommend working with them. The session with Mae helped me to gain clarity, to set my intentions and in addition she gave me some good advice for my preparation before the retreat. To have the opportunity to work with three master plants during one retreat was unique, they perfectly matched together and enabled a very profound work and experience. Naysha and Darryl are two powerful and wise shamans which always hold the space and are very supportive during and after the ceremonies. At any times they know and advice what is needed to support your process. One can feel their integrity and connection to the heart. The combination of Naysha's wonderful singing and Darryl's powerful drumming during the ceremonies is just mind blowing and a strong companion going through the process. Lost but not least I love their humour and good vibrations they spread out during those days so one feels always in good hands.
Juan Carlos Dunick March 06, 2019
I have had several encounters with Naysha the head of Taita Inti and a few with her team that follows. Together as a group they are very powerful, each playing to the others weaknesses and strengths. They utilze every available asset and problem solve together. I found them to be straight forward and honest, speaking with integrity and from the heart. During my time with them I was witness to many events from expelling of negative spirits to contagious unstoppable laughter. They really work when they have to. It gives me great pleasure to highly recommend Taita Inti to those seeking this plant path. They will direct you, tell you no and show you compassion when you need it.
Leili Ali February 16, 2019
With all my heart I am loving this amazing organization! During the ceremonies with TAITA INTI team, I feel very safe and protected and that I can do my work. Their love is genuine and they are always ready to give all they can in order to help you through your healing. Whenever I need some advice, or talk, or any kind of help, Taita inti team is always there to support. For me it is always important to feel that I can trust the person, and all Taita Inti team members are very honest, and their work and all actions come from love, and from there comes the trust.
