About This Center

Our ayahuasca healing centre is a true healing center, the Master shaman Julio has been a healer working with plant medicine including ayahuasca for 40 years. We are a Czech - Australian couple who was told by spirits to do this job - help people reconnect with their heart, realign with god/source, heal people with ayahuasca and love. We had no idea how to do this in Australia nor Czech Republic so we booked in a retreat near Iquitos to get more information. Instead of drinkin ayahuasca by series of "coinsidencies" we were offered a 44 hectar jungle property, we didn't hesitate and bought it without even seeing it, as we suddenly understood that this was our mission, this was our job exactly as we were told - build a retreat and offer healing. We gave up our very comfortable life, we didn't have to work, just enjoyed life and were getting ready for a baby - we own a beautiful thriving fitness center in Prague, Czech where we deal with health, physical condition and nutrition. We gave everything in our house away and left with a suitcase and a daughter on the way to live on 20m2, no electricity and not much food in the jungle, to build this centre where the Source can do the work through us and our shaman. Even if you think your condition is untreatable, as our shaman says "there is no disease that can't be cured", there is a way...

We both (Katerina and Kevin) are QHHT practitioners (quantum healing hypnosis therapy), however, working with ayahuasca is the ultimate reconnecting and healing opportunity for which we are very grateful. We are 100% committed to helping people heal their body & soul and expand their consciousness. Ayahuasca shows you the truth and let your heart or guides speak, in every day life the brain takes over and it's hard to listen to their wisdom. So if you are ready for the truth and healing, we are here to guide you.

We designed our facillity so it makes you as comfortable as possible, the ayahuasca experience and the jungle may be tough, so we pride in having a cabin for 1 person, with flushing toilette, running water (shower, wash basin), filtered water, you can charge your phones. We created safe environment for you.

Since we come from the same cultural background as our guests, we can relate to their problems and needs and make their stay more enjoyable, there is no language barrier, we speak English, Czech, Spanish, some French. 

We love what we do, we love ayahuasca and what it can do for you. That's why we went through hell in the jungle and can't wait to have more and more success stories.

In this ayahuasca retreat I felt so much love that I didn't feel all my life, they became my family. Pavel

Venue Highlights

Ayahuasca Lupuna Retreat is located right in the jungle to give the real jungle experience, however, it's designed to be safe - walkways everywhere so you don't need to worry where you step. You can see blue morphos flying around. It's only 30 minutes from Iquitos by boat and then beautiful new road to the retreat. We keep working on the retreat, improving things, we just love what we are doing and you can feel it when you come and see us. When you do ayahuasca, you may experience purging effects. That's why, unlike most retreats, we have single cabins with flushing toilets and showers. Believe us, you don't want to share accommodation with other people while doing ayahuasca or run to the shower located far away. Our shaman prepares ayahuasca himself and makes sure the ceremony is safe and just right for you, the group is max. 10 people so the retreat is more personal. The ceremonial house is very large, one of the largest actually, that gives you a lot of space around so you are not disturbed by other people during the ceremony as is the case in most retreats. To sum up, we designed the whole retreat for you based on our own experience with ayahuasca retreats and took it to perfection. The swimming pool is coming soon.


Private cabins for 1 person, 2 people per request.
Each cabin has a large double bed, mosquito net, hammock, shower, flushing toilet (in retreats there usually is no running water so no flushing toilets), veranda.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

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.
