About This Event
7 Day Christmas Week Special Retreat
This 7 day retreat is a special inauguration event for our new center! We will be celebrating our first Christmas with guests and invite you to join us to experience our local festivities! Like all our weekly retreats, you will also have an authentic and immersive experience with 4 ayahuasca ceremonies led by a traditional Shipobo shaman, but at a 20% discount. We also offer pre-ayahuasca purgative ceremonies rapé, piñon negro, and hierba luisa. With group sizes at a maximum of only 8 people, you will have an intimate space to heal and delve into your spirituality. Aside from ceremonies you will have to chance to participate in several activities including jungle excursions, visiting the local village to view traditional crafts, yoga and meditation.
Reduced rate reflected in event price, valid for retreats booked for the week of December 23rd-29th. A perfect way to spend the holidays, heal and prepare for the upcoming year!
Our stay was amazing. I could not even dream that this place will transform me like this. If you really are ready to face your inner demons and want to find your path in this life Wiler will do that for you. Amazing retreat, amazing shaman and amazing people. My jungle family, you are the best experience I could ever think of living. It touched me in so many ways, that I can't really put in words how grateful I am for all the lessons ayahuasca thought me. Thank you for showing me the light and love. -Alexandra
Venue HighlightsWe offer several activities throughout the week including:
• Shipobo Immersion Day (learn customary traditions directly from Shipobo peoples)
• Jungle excursions
• Shipobo Market Day (with local crafts, arts, and tapestries)
• Yoga and meditation sessions
AccommodationsAt our center, you will have plenty of space to reconnect with yourself. We only host a maximum of 8 guests at a time, and our rooms fit 2 guests. If you travel alone you will get a roommate or couples can request a double bed. The space is intimate but welcoming and there are plenty of areas to take some time to yourself.
Our standard rooms have twin sized beds, each with their own mosquito nets. Pillows, sheets, and blankets are all provided. We have shared, modern western toilets and showers on site with running water. There is access to the internet via data sticks if you bring your laptop (or another device with USB port) in case of emergency, but we suggest you come prepared to live as indigenous people do and take time to commune with the surrounding nature. This is an authentic ayahuasca experience after all!
Menu/CuisineWorking with ayahuasca requires a special diet to maintain balance and clarity during your ceremonies. Traditionally this is simply prepared food, without spices, salt, oil, or sugar. A typical meal will have a simple protein like eggs, beans, chicken or fish, with rice or quinoa, vegetables, and fruit. All meals can be tailored to vegetarian or vegan palates. You will also have 24-hour access to clean, filtered drinking water. Three meals will be provided on days without ayahuasca ceremonies, but on days with we fast through dinner and begin the ceremony shortly after. This minimizes discomfort after consumption and allows the medicine to work without impediment.
DirectionsOur village of Limongema is located about 2 hours by boat from the city of Pucallpa, Peru. One of our staff will meet you at the El Castillo Plaza Hotel, our meeting point. Our retreats begin on Sunday mornings when we will meet and greet at the hotel lobby and begin traveling towards the center as a group.
International flights to Peru typically have Lima (LIM) as the main layover. You may choose to book your flight directly through to Pucallpa (PCL), but buying a separate ticket from LIM to PCL is sometimes more frugal. Local airlines like StarPeru, Peruvian, and LATAM, typically transit between the two cities once or twice a day. You may choose to extend your layover in Lima to explore the historic city before embarking towards Pucallpa. We suggest planning to arrive in Pucallpa at least a day or two before your retreat begins. Regardless of your chosen route, if flying internationally expect and allow time to collect and re-check your baggage through customs in each foreign country you may have a layover in. Check with your airline for details.
