About us

In 2017 Maestro Emilio and Sina went to Montañita Ecuador to visit their friends and do ceremonies. They really loved the place and together with the friends we decided to build a beautiful maloka (ceremony building) and start also to work in Ecuador. The ocean setting is very good for the healing work with Ayahuasca. For many people this is more comfortable setting than the jungle. During the retreats in Montañita, Ecuador the participants have possibility go surfing or participate in yoga sessions in the very good studios in town. Surfing in Montañita is very good for both advanced or completely beginner surfers. We can organize surf lessons for people who wish that. This is truly a completely unique opportunity to work with high level Shipibo maestros in this type setting. 

We are organizing few of these retreats every year. Each retreat is 2 weeks and includes 7 Ayahuasca ceremonies. The groups are very limited, 7 people maximum. 

Montañita is located very conveniently for travellers from North America and Europe. Guayaquil international airport is only 2,5 hour bus ride away. Montañita for many is known as a party town but also has a strong spiritual and concious community of locals with many different ceremonies held frequently. Our house is located on a top of a hill, the best location in Montañita. We are perfectly far from town so the noise don’t distract us but it is still only 10minutes walk to the town and 5minute walk down to the beach. Our house has nice garden for relaxing and big living room and kitchen area. We are environmentally concious and dont waste water so our toilets are compost toilets. The house is located on a top of a hill and naturally requires little bit walking up hill. 

The retreats include 7 Ayahuasca ceremonies, all meals (vegetarian food, very tasty), accomodation in dorm rooms. For additional price we offer also private room. For people in need we also might be offering plant baths and purgatives. For people interested in surfing we can organize surfboard rental for additional price as well as surfing lessons. People interested in Yoga there is several very nice yoga studios in town for cheap price.

For people who want we can also organize day tour to Isla de la Plata, also known as the poor man’s Galapagos. Also there is possibility for surf trips to other beaches in the area and visiting native community to see their archelogical sites and enjoy vulganic lagoon. 

NEXT RETREAT: 25th November-9th December 2018 with Maestro Emilio

PRICE: $950 

Sending email is not guarantee of booking. We hold the right to scan/interview every applicant before confirming a spot in the retreat. Since the groups are very limited first ones will be served first. 

We are happy to help and advice with travel planning. For people wishing to stay more days before or after retreat we can rent out rooms for daily price.
