10 Day Yoga and Ayahuasca Immersion "The Nature of Yoga"

About This Event

In todays world many of us are blessed with the chance to learn from cultural traditions outside those from our native homes. At The Garden of Peace we have developed a deep love for both Plant Spirit Shamanism from Peru and the Yogic Path from India. These two paths have very many beautiful parallels in the way they train us to become more present, open and receptive to the natural divinity of this universe.

We have found the two paths to be very complementary and have developed this special retreat to work with both in a delicate and supportive way which helps us to go deeper with each practice. A truly rich and in many ways new areas of spiritual exploration and personal healing which we are so excited to share.

The retreat is designed for all levels of prior experience with yoga or Ayahuasca. We work with small groups in order to provide an adaptable personal level of care.

Venue Highlights

The garden of Peace is located in a small remote valley in mountainous jungle. We have individual guest huts and a number of larger buildings. During your stay you will be able to rest in hammocks, stretch in the temple and swim in the beautiful river which runs through the land. Sometimes we offer alternative therapies like Temezcal (sweatlodge) Yoga, Sound Healing and Breathwork.


We have individual huts for our guests, these are basic but designed to be safe and comfortable while supporting the plant medicine work. We have electricity in the main house and composting toilets. The bathrooms are shared and our river is wonderful for swimming and bathing.


We provide meals in line with the requirements of the different plant medicine programs we offer. We can also cater for digestive needs as we work with many patients who suffer from leaky gut, coeliacs disease etc. We serve wholefoods, very simple, largely vegetarian and made on site with love.


We are based 2 hours from Tarapoto Peru so the best way to reach us is to fly from Lima to Tarapoto and we will meet you there.

Why Retreat?

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

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon

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.
