Alignment Intensive 9 Day Ayahuasca Retreat

About us

Continuing with our commitment to constantly evolve and improve our work, in May 2018 we will be offering a very special new 9-day retreat – our Alignment Intensive Ayahuasca Retreat – that will bring together a synthesis of the ancient healing traditions of the Amazon with pioneering ontological inquiry, deep processing, and alignment work.

At the end of your life, what do you want to say you lived for? This retreat – the first of its kind – is specifically designed to have you be who you came here to be, and give you tools so that you can go back into your life and continue to be that for the world.

In May, we are going to be offering, for the very first time, this very special retreat that combines ayahuasca ceremonies and the sophisticated healing work of our Shipibo Maestras and Maestros with a kind of ontological inquiry that will have you identify your calling or mission for your life, and give you tools to design your life so that it is aligned with that calling.

For this work, we will have Richard Condon, a ‘Maestro’ of ontological inquiry with almost 40 years of experience, and Dr. Tanya Kammonnen (formerly Maté), our Integration Director, leading daytime group conversations, and a team of 3 female and 2 male Shipibo healers, supported by 3 resident Temple facilitators, running 5 nighttime ayahuasca ceremonies and a variety of daytime healing activities.


Richard Condon

Internationally recognized for his masterful approach to ontological inquiry, working with both individuals and businesses, Richard presents innovative and inspiring perspectives on how to transform and elevate your life, leadership, teamwork, relationships, and communication, by focusing on the importance of intention and how to align to your heart and soul. For the last 39 years he has worked across Asia, Europe, and North America, leading and managing transformational training programs for nearly 200,000 people.

Richard first experienced working with ayahuasca in 2013 in the USA and was moved by the potential of the medicine. He then came to the Temple in November 2017 and was deeply touched by his experiences with Shipibo shamanic healing. He immediately realized the unique potential of combining his decades of experience in ontological inquiry with the power of Traditional Amazonian Medicine, and is excited to now be developing this pioneering new approach with the Temple.


Dr. Tanya Kammonnen

Tanya has recently uprooted her life in Canada, in an ongoing process of alignment, and has moved to the Amazon. She is now living in the jungle, and is working at the Temple to help train our factilation team in ontological and processing tools. She also leads a variety of ayahuasca retreats each year at the Temple, continues to develop and coordinate the Temple’s Integration Program, and will occasionally be seen outside of Peru at conferences on plant medicines and psychedelic healing.

Trained as a Naturopathic Doctor, Tanya has many years of experience with plant medicines in the Shipibo tradition, and combines her background in the biological sciences and medical training with a deep reverence for the world of plant spirits.

Venue Highlights

The Temple recognizes our ayahuasca healing retreats as sacred work and is dedicated to providing the optimum conditions for profound, long-term healing. Through ayahuasca, our retreats move us into right relationship with ourselves and others. By bringing clarity to where and how we must change – and treating the psycho-spiritual and emotional imbalances that impede change – ayahuasca and the Temple’s Shipibo healers help guests toward a healthier, more integral and joy-filled life.
