About This Center

Oka Wasi is nestled in the beautiful Upper Amazonia of Perú near Tarapoto, between the foothills of the Andes mountains and the Amazon rainforest, near the Cordillera Escalera national park. Our retreats are led by Yann Rivière Metsa Oka and his wife Zsuzsi, accompanied by Shipibo healers from the renowned Mahua family, incorporating plant medicine ceremonies, master plant dieta, radical therapy / individual counseling, yoga and meditation. We believe that weaving ancient shamanic traditions into the tapestry of our daily existence brings transformation, healing and a deeper understanding of the self. Our unique programs are meant to create a bridge between different paths of ancestral wisdom that are all about re-connecting the soul, the mind and the body and aligning their interactions with the invisible world.

Chaos is what we've lost touch with. This is why it is given a bad name. It is feared by the dominant archetype of our world, which is Ego, which clenches because its existence is defined in terms of control. Terence McKenna
