About This Center

Mai Niti is our family run traditional Shipibo healing center based in our homeland; the Amazon region of Peru (Pucallpa). We’ve been working as Maestros for many generations, and have a profound depth of ancestral wisdom and knowledge with respect to the plants and healing.

Our aim is to awaken you to your true potential by expanding your consciousness and healing your mind, body and spirit.

Mai Niti in English means Clarity of the Earth. By living in symbiosis with mother earth, she gifts us with the clarity and insight needed to do the work that we do. It fills our hearts with joy to see the people who come here leave healed, happy and free, with a deeper connection to themselves and awareness of their true nature. At Mai Niti, we work with sacred plants in a way that opens one up to receive the knowledge and healing power the plants have to give. Among these sacred medicines we work with is ayahuasca.

At our core, compassion is what guides us and empowers us to do the work that we do. Our doors are always open to all who come in need of healing.

The environment is not separate from ourselves. We are inside it and it is inside us. We make it and it makes us. - Yanomami

We are located in the Shipibo community of San Francisco which is one hour north of Pucallpa, Peru. It is very easy to get to our center from Pucallpa. From Pucallpa you need to take a motocar to Yarinacocha and ask the driver to drop you off where the cars to San Francisco leave from. Once in Yarinacocha, you can get a car to San Francisco. If you like, you can tell the driver to drop you off at "casa de Lucia", all the drivers will know where it is. Otherwise you can ask directions to anyone in the village, its a small village where everyone knows everyone.

Note: we will arrange collection and drop off for anyone who has booked a 12 day or longer retreat.

Go to the place within, where you are love, and the questions answer themselves.

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.
