About us

Sinchi Runa is an intimate ayahuasca and master plant retreat center, as well as a family and student home. We are dedicated to provide and nurture a safe, compassionate, and sacred space in which one can experience genuine healing and spiritual awakening. Our mission is to help each individual reconnect with their true essence by awakening the capacity of wisdom that resides within their heart.

All of our services are uniquely customized to nurture and serve each and every individual according to their own understanding and needs. Undergoing a process at Sinchi Runa is a remarkable opportunity in unveiling and realizing the very nature of existence; an opportunity to reconnect to and discover the truth and freedom of who one truly is.

About the 1 month deep immersion retreat

Our 1 month deep immersion retreat is an opportunity to enter into a sacred space away from habitual daily life. This allows oneself to confront disharmonies and to comprehend and heal origins of suffering and disconnection. The deep immersion takes the participant on a journey of profound self-healing and understanding through the discovery of the universe and wisdom within. The aim is to reconnect with the natural joy of being and to reach a greater understanding of existence and life as a whole.

Stages of the retreat


The retreat starts with a purification period before entering the shamanic diet. The participant goes through a physical and emotional cleanse with purgative plants, diuretics, saunas with plant baths, special diet and introspection. This initiation may last from 3 to 7 days depending on the situation of each participant.

Shamanic diet

The diet is a process of solitude and inner work with master plants and the healing energies of nature and the cosmos. The participant is following a strict diet of plain whole grain rice and green plantains and ingest a designated master plants three times a day. During the diet one observes silence and abstain even from eye contact. At times Sanango will come to speak to the dieter, help with guidence and invoke the spirit of the plant. During these visits one can speak with him (and the translator and facilitator in case it is needed).

During the entire process Sanango works as a guide and healer within the subtle and spiritual realm as well as in one-on-one consultations and therapies. He does this while always respecting the direct experience and proper understanding of the participants themselves. The consultations serve as a basis to understand and integrate what one has experienced in the ayahuasca ceremonies as well as in the shamanic diet and throughout the process. This allows the participant to bring to a conscious level what he or she may need to comprehend in order to truly heal.

Post diet, harmonization and integration

The post diet is an important stage of the healing process, it is during this time that the comprehension and healing is integrated into the heart of the participant. In another words, it gets embedded into the core and applied in daily life. This period is best done in a protected environment and it also serves as an act of gratitude to the universe for the compassion that was received overall in the process. During this process there are shamanic consultations, ayahuasca ceremonies, hatha yoga, meditation and lectures on eastern philosophy and shamanism.

Sinchi Runa and these incredible plants have helped me to move through fears, suffering, and thoughts that have kept me stuck for years. I have experienced healing at such a profound level, they have reached places in me that I thought were unreachable. They have guided me on a journey of self love and acceptance. And what followed were the most beautiful truths, the cracking open of my heart, and finding myself open as the Universe, and discovering a deep trust in the Universe. I feel this is what I have been looking for my whole life and I am so full of gratitude to have found it here.

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

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.
