Achieve Personal & Spiritual Transformation
Our workshops incorporate the traditional use of the sacred visionary plant medicine ayahuasca in conjunction with universal spirituality and modern disciplines of shamanism. We focus on bridging the gap between Western cultures and these ancient practices to offer an experience that truly impacts the entirety of your life.
At Blue Morpho, we are very open to sharing the knowledge of the shamanic arts with you, to not only enhance your experience here with us but so that you can return home with a deeper knowing that will continue to inform and affect your life in positive ways.
One of the main focuses of traditional medicine practice is healing. Ayahuasca can be used to address all kinds of ailments including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual forms of sickness. All of these afflictions are manifestations of what we call “crossed energies”. Crossed energies manifest as a result of disharmonious patterns within you and in your life. Ayahuasca medicine is used to help straighten these crossed energies to bring you back to a state of balance and harmony. The purge and cleansing that occurs during the ceremony is part of the process of straightening these energies.
The focus of our work is on your transformation and evolution. Ayahuasca medicine is a very powerful modality for creating spaces where this evolution can take place. Our job on this journey is to 100% support and guide your process the whole way through. Everyone comes to Blue Morpho and to ayahuasca with a unique set of reasons and intentions. Our shamanic workshops are created to help facilitate and bring resolution to your reasons for embarking on this journey. Incorporating a number of shamanic and transformational tools, together we explore the mystical reality of shamanism, spirit, self, plant medicine, consciousness, transformation, and ultimately your life.
Shamanic Ayahuasca & Plant Dieta Workshops
At Blue Morpho, we work with traditional ayahuasca healing shamans (ayahuasqueros, curanderos) who practice the mystical shamanic arts of the jungle. Through visionary plant medicine ceremonies, guests can experience tremendous spiritual, emotional and energetic evolution. Whether you are looking for personal healing, spiritual growth, insight into your life, deep change, or consciousness expansion – you will find the support, guidance, knowledge and professionalism necessary to help you fully realize your intentions for being here.
The shamanic dieta is a process of deep purification, transformation and learning within traditional Amazonian shamanism. It is an opportunity for you to commune directly with the plant spirits in the ancient traditions of the jungle in a setting of support, beauty, compassion and spiritual medicine. The focus of the workshop is on exploring and integrating the experience of the shamanic dieta in ways that translate to direct and meaningful changes throughout all aspects of your life.
Shamanic dietas can be utilized for physical, mental and emotional healing, as well as for spiritual growth, learning, and profound personal transformation. Over the course of the week, your relationship with the plant spirits will deepen and evolve. As this happens, you will also evolve. The learning is direct, experiential and entirely based upon your own connections.
Your transformation and evolution is our focus. Our job on this journey is to 100% support and guide your process the whole way through.

Our shamanic retreats are created to help facilitate and bring resolution to your reasons for embarking on this journey.

Led by Maestro Alberto Torres Davila, along with our full shamanic team, these retreats are limited to only 20 guests and awards the opportunity for ample time spent with the shamans and staff both in and out of ceremony, as well as the opportunity to take your work with the medicine very deep.
he dieta begins by ingesting the barks of several medicinal trees in a mild tea form. The tree spirits offer their medicine and through this communion, they transform and teach you from within your body. Once the bond is created, they become part of you. Over the course of the dieta and its integration into your life, you develop your own style of relating to these spirits and their medicine. The culmination of this process is continued growth, learning, connection and communion for the rest of your life.
The traditional shamanic dieta consists of a carefully restricted food intake for at least 6 days. You can eat only a few very bland foods, such as green plantains, yucca meal, chicken, eggs, and one type of fish. No salt, sugar, or oil is allowed. This limited food intake purifies your body so that the energy of the plants absorb and integrate within you. You offer the plant spirits your time, energy, dedication and focus; in exchange, you receive their medicine as the plant spirits teach and guide you.
There are certain restrictions that you will have to follow during and after the dieta. For instance, during the dieta, you are not allowed to use soap or toothpaste, and you must avoid direct physical contact with others (except for the shamans and assistants). After the dieta, you are not allowed to have ANY sort of sexual contact (including masturbation or fantasizing) for 30 days, and you cannot consume pork for at least 6 months. Dieters should stay in the shade (out of the sun) and spend most of their time relaxing (not hiking or taking part in any physically strenuous activity). There are several other restrictions that will be covered in detail during the retreat.
