Venue HighlightsSituated on the famous "boiling river of the Upper Amazon," Santuario 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.
AccommodationsSantuario is a very peaceful and secure environment. Everyone has their own private room and bed (including bedding and towel) and mosquito net at the center. There are proper toilets and water is drawn from the boiling river for bathing. It is a natural, ecological environment that is profoundly beautiful and simple.
