About This Event

We would like to offer a platform to people, regardless of race, up-bringing or believes, that allows for individual growth at a physical, spiritual or emotional level, through the use of traditional medicinal plants.
May peace and happiness spread around the world in difficult times like little lights- all in alignment with Mother Earth (Sachamama in Quechua language) and the Universal Forces, developing a new consciousness and making use of new technologies. As a base or a bridge we appreciate and apply the traditional instruments indigenous people of the Amazon have acquired and developed over thousands of years. Their cosmovision is tightly connected to their environment in a big circle of live. That’s why it is one of our tasks as well to cherish and protect the rain forest, home to numerous animals and plants which serve in so many different ways:
The Amazon forest is the biggest jungle in our world.  Approximately half of all rain forest in the world lies in  the area of the Amazon (6.74 million km2). Many parts are primary growth rain-forest and only recently humanity is realizing its importance on the global climate.

I thank the grace of the universe for this blessing, to allow myself to under my purpose and the love within me. Gracias Pachamama, big hug to all the family at katari center - Sarah B.

Venue Highlights

Katari is an Indigenous Plant Medicine Center, nested in the middle of the virgin Amazonian jungle, which caters to people in search of deep personal growth at a physical, mental, and spiritual level.

Many of our guests have experienced:

Purification, regeneration and harmonization on corporal and mental dispositions
Clarity about life path and new perspective on personal issues
Emotional liberation, renovation of vital energies
Healing of sub acute or chronic diseases
Awakening of own spiritual strength
Connection with nature inside and outside
Facing ones fears or other types of blockage
A new sense of peace and happiness to their life.
Since everybody disposes of his or her own nature, there is no general result of the programme – they are as various and colourful as the persons that attend them

Accommodations

Accommodation at Katari Center is beautiful and basic. Each person stays in their own individual bungalow with a small private room and bathroom. We do not have hot water or electricity with the aim of removing all distractions from the material world allowing you to go within and process whatever is coming up. 

There is a beautiful river running through Katari and the 6 hectare property is wonderful to explore. The natural beauty of the jungle is breathtaking and you will be surrounded by wildlife.

      Humble & Loving Spirit

    It's been a true honour and pleasure to have maestro introduce me to plant medicine. He has a deep understanding of working with the medicine and is able to share his mindset with the knowledge and traditions of the Quechuan people. He is a magnificent guide and is able to help me during my process of self healing. You instantly feel safe and comfortable in his presence and are able to talk about everything. Apart from being a beautiful human, he is a great musician and singer, you will never forget his Power Icaros, which is highly appreciated during ceremonies. An unforgettable experience working with Maestro Chakaruna. My love and gratitude to you brother, Many blessings to you and Katari Center.

      Loving, Kindness and Shanti

    This is truly a special place on this planet! it was really important for me to find a place where i could have the most authentic healing experience. Choosing to attend Katari Center has been one the greatest gifts I have ever given myself and also has been one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I've spent a month there and every second was a healing, both figuratively and literally. The place is like a little piece of heaven, the staff is friendly, the food is delicious and most importantly healthy and the organisation is impeccable. I felt comfortable and safe; this has become a new home away from home. Maestro Chakaruna is an exceptional soul, an amazing friend & a tremendous healer, he and his team doing such a hard, tremendous and sacred healing work on people every day that you can't help but feel an infinite gratitude and respect for them and for what they accomplish. I would want to share my love and gratitude to each soul I've met on my journey and I hope to return back Katari Center soon. I finally have found peace in my heart and mind thanks to Madra Aya & Katari Center.

      Infinite gratitude and love

    Infinite gratitude and love for Herbert and his Family for welcoming me to Katari with open arms! This has been the most valuable and sacred experience of my life. Completing my Dieta was not easy, but with the help from the Sacred Plants, the Spirits, PachaMama, the Family and of coarse Herbert, my Master Plant Dieta rewarded me with clarity, peace, love and Healing beyond my years. Herbert is a gifted healer who has the innate ability to speak and connect to the spirits of nature, helping you to feel, see and understand the duality between the physical and spiritual realms and how they co-exist. Shaminism helps to connect you back into your body, into your soul, and most importantly helps you to feel yourself internally and work in your body. Working with the plants and spirits, you can heal and cure the body of dis-ease, trauma, fears, pain and pretty much anything that is not serving your highest good. A plant may not talk, but there is a spirit in it called ‘consciousness’ that sees everything, which is the soul of the planet, it’s essence which makes it alive. Working with the plant medicine allows you to connect to universal intelligence and consciousness present in all beings, including the plant and animal kingdom —in Mother Nature. Thank you Katari for changing my life.

Working with the plant medicine allows you to connect to universal intelligence and consciousness present in all beings, including the plant and animal kingdom —in Mother Nature. During one ceremony I was privileged enough to experience DNA Clearing; We are all vibrating with particular frequencies, a particular frequency band, and that frequency band is emitting certain vibrations - It is represented in our auric field. Therefore, we are attracting people, places, ways of life and experiences that align with the frequencies we emit. In order to vibe to higher frequency vibrations we must increase our frequency—protecting our body, mind and spirit and only aligning ourselves with like minded individuals, cities, places and life situations. You can clean your auric field by cleaning your DNA and your Spirit, which in turn heals You and your ancestors; cleaning your lineage from any emotional traumas you may have collected or inherited in this lifetime and in past lives. Similar to hitting the ‘reset’ button on your present life, cleaning your auric field gives you the opportunity to start your New Life and decide for yourself how you would like to fill your precious bubble in this present moment in time. Thank you Katari for changing my life.

      Master musician, mind tehnician and the spirit of jungle knowledge

    Maestro Chakaruna is a energetic, positive man and optimistic man! He is the driving force behind amazing ceremonies with processes developing as spiritual fireworks, but with complete sense of deep security, safety and purpose for everyone involved. The music he creates on ceremonies is deep, powerful, transformational. Many world class musicians often participate in his ceremonies all around the world, and they join the creative process with their instruments and voices - and this is a experience to behold. Every time I have participated in one of Chakarunas ceremonies, it was intense, deep and transformational experience, deeply woven in my soul and mind.

      Transformation and deep tuning

    10 amazing days at Katari changed my life forever. I've communicated with my inner being, with the jungle and spirit teachers. Learned how to love my self, what universe is and how to walk through my life with steady step. Learned not to be afraid of the change, to embrace the infinite evolution and expansion of life. Nature surroundings in Katari are beautiful. It's not the deep jungle, although you very much feel the power of floresta - amazing forest with beautiful hills, river, tracking paths. Tambos are simple, but comfortable, and feed is tasty. Except if you are on a planta dieta. Then it is what it has to be. :)

      More than I ever imagined!

    My first time with plant medicine was at katari. The maestro was respectful and guided me into the medicine then allowed me to be in my process and prior to completion of the ceremony he brought me back to alignment. This man changed my life forever and I have stepped into my power as a woman. I have received so many gifts... Thank you Katari and Chakaruna!!!!!

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
