MONTH LONG HEALING IMMERSIONS
A month long personalized Shamanic retreat is definitely recommended if you can spare the time to devote yourself to your healing work as you can reach much deeper levels of understanding and can achieve a more complete detoxification than would be possible in the shorter retreats. In a month, you may be able to move to the root of deeper underlying issues and address a strategy for future healing and recovery. Month long immersions involve ayahuasca ceremonies in addition to the possibility of working with other powerful teacher plants. Other plants will be determined by the maestro depending on your specific needs and what you wish to learn and achieve in your healing. A month will allow deeper work with challenging plants and more powerful results. Month long retreats can begin any time and can be extended if desired.

Venue HighlightsSantuario is a traditional Amazonian healing centre, nature reserve, and conservation project situated on a unique geological phenomenon, a boiling river known locally as 'Shanay-timpishka' (heated by the sun). The river stretches up to seven kilometres through the rainforest, enshrouding the area in a vapour of mystery. Possessing great spiritual significance to the communities that surround it, the river is reputedly the home of "Yakumama," the world serpent that breathes life and death into the Amazon. Interestingly, the river has remained a secret in Peru for thousands of years until now, only known to the local communities.
The whole region and surrounding rainforest is fascinating and simmers with powerful energy. Many of the local species or flora and fauna have survived since the Jurassic era and and you will find ancient trees of incredible girth and height, and an amazing variety of birds, monkeys, and insects. The area was once long ago the hunting grounds of the Cashibo people, famed for their fierceness and refusal to be converted by missionaries.
Santuario is the destination for adventurous visitors that are looking for an authentic experience working with Amazonian plant medicine for healing and knowledge in the tradition of vegetalismo. Many return year after year to deepen their work in this beautiful and mysterious place which is truly a hidden jewel in Peru.

When not in ceremony or taking medicines, visitors spend their time in quiet reflection and relaxation, reading and taking walks in the rainforest around the boiling river. There are many areas to do yoga, write, and draw. It is also a wonderful place to bird watch, and appreciate the incredible wildlife of the area.
