Venue Highlights

Situated on the famous "boiling river of the Upper Amazon," Santuario Huishtin is a centre unlike any other in Peru for its unique beauty and magical environment. Here, the rainforest shimmers with energy and you will experience tranquility and the ability to go deep in your healing work not found any where in the world. Founded and run by the maestros and their family (Maestro Santiago Enrrique Paredes Melendez, his partner and wife Maestra Ayme Vargas, and brother Maestro Hegner Paredes Melendez) you will participate in authentic healing practices in the tradition of "vegetalismo" (plant spirit shamanism) in a safe and comfortable environment. Here the medicine is pure and powerful. Santiago Enrrique Paredes Melendez and his family have become renown in Peru for their knowledge of plant diets and Santuario has become the best place in Peru to commit to apprenticeships and long term, individualized study with Amazonian plant teachers.

Why Retreat?

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

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara

Retreat Guru's Vision

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.
