About This Event

IMPORTANT : please read carefully following description, and if there is anything unclear or anything more you need to know, write us a message, we will love to go into details. It is important to be aware what is dieta before signing up.

We invite you to a two-week transformation process happening in isolation, a kind of shamanic vipassana that enables contact with spirits of healing plants, better understanding of oneself and roots of own problems, getting rid of things blocking you from moving forward and finding onwards path in life.

This is an intimate diet structured in a traditional style in a family camp, in a very small group, under care of healers from the Shipibo tribe and a western team of facilitators.

This holistic transformation process consists of :

11 days diet in isolation / 4 ceremonies with Ayahuasca cooked by ourselves out of pure, chosen plants / private consultations with shamans / private integration sessions with a psychologist experienced in working with plants - depending on the needs / plant medicines - chosen according to your intentions and issues to be solved / plant bath / rapé and mapacho ceremonies / jungle walks / integration day after the diet 

You can diet one of many plant teachers available, such as Ajo Sacha (Mansoa Alliacea), Bobinsana (Calliandra angustifolia), Chiric Sanango (Brunfelsia grandiflora), Chuchuhuasi (Maytenus laevis), Uña de Gato (Cat's Claw, Uncaria Tormentoso) and many other. You can choose yourself if you are experienced, or healers can help you choose according to your intentions.

Our focus and best effects so far are working with issues such as chronic depression, lack of clarity and purpose in life, compulsive habits and addictions ( for example alcohol, drugs, sex addiction ), lack of focus and determinations to finish things, anxiety and excessive control, emotional blockages. Besides, both ayahuasca and other plants prove effective for a range of physical ailments. It is best to contact us before to discuss potential options of your healing.

Dieta is led by a crew of experienced Shipibo shamans, we especially take care to have female maestra present, which is most appreciated by women who often are cautious who they learn from. The healers work with a variety of techniques, ayahuasca ceremonies being only one among them. On each retreat we select those who are in best shape, not affected by routine, which results in some places in shaman falling asleep during the ceremony. Male shamans give sense of foundation and stability in the ceremony, as well as power that takes you really deep, while female presence assures empathy, feeling and sensitivity. If there is any physical treatment that needs to be performed at night, during ceremony, female guests are always treated by female healer. There are also always multilingual Western practitioners present, so all the work is very personalized, completely  different from group ceremonies with dozens of people you may have experienced. Our typical ratio is 1 healer per 2 guests so it guarantees safe and profound experience.

The concept of the dieta in Shipibo and some other Amazonian cultures is learning directly from the plant you are dieting, receiving messages in order to heal oneself, learn about reality, and learn tools of medicinal work, especially healing songs called icaros. It requires a lot of determination, and is for people dedicated to make a change in their life and in lifes of others. By silencing your mind, switching out external distractions, chaotic energies of everyday life, you can be still enough to hear subtle message, in your dreams, visions or in the forest surrounding you, the teaching from the plants. This is how shamans of these traditions learn, and how you can learn.

The integration of Ayahuasca experience is even more important than the ceremony itself. Diet is something very similar to Vipassana - silent Buddhist meditation, or looking for a vision. The participant will spend time in complete solitude, away from all distractions, to allow devoting as much time as possible to introspection after the ceremony. Food during the diet is without salt, sugar, spices, fat, no fruit. It is suggested to refrain from reading, communication with the outside world, instead we suggest concentration, meditation or yoga. It is a form of isolation, a process of symbolic burial, permission to let the old patterns die, and the new path to be revealed, what is worth emphasizing again, it is a certain sacrifice in order to truly change and learn. 

You will be dieting in a private tambo, forest hut, protected against insects, without electricity.  Twice a day, a simple meal will be served.

Specific plants have their characteristics, some are better for opening heart and emotions, some give you a solid center and strength, defence against hardships of life, some make you more focused, able to do what you want but so far only claimed you want, including leaving your addictions. Some can heal stomach problems, rheumatism, depression. You should specify your intentions when applying, and the healer will choose one appropriate. 

The root of ¨dieta¨ is δίαιτα , which was a Greek word meaning a way of life. This included not only food, but also way of being in the world, way of thinking, relating to environment and others. In the Amazonian tradition it means stepping out of your ordinary daily life, and reorganizing it completely with the aim of changing focus and opening new communication - with plants and with yourself. If you want a radical breaktrough, you need to look for radical solutions. You may have already drunk ayahuasca or went through some other initiatory experience that hinted you direction to follow, but all seems very complicated, you don´t know where to start, entagled in complexity of your life patterns. But there is a way. It has been tested in history of humanity in various contexts, spiritual practice of separating yourself from social game, from all habits and noises, and seeking the voice in the wilderness.

Whether it is Jesus conversing with God and Satan in the desert, an Amazonian shaman learning from the plants, or modern man understanding himself better, these may be just cultural ways of attempting to use language to describe similar process. The only way to understand, is to stop thinking and try. This can not only be profound healing, but also an adventure of your life.

We set our price very moderately, to enable access for people with limited budget. At the same time we pay same kind of money to the healer she would get working with big groups. This is our effort to revive traditional Shipibo ways of learning and create intimate experience for you. The modest profit goes for people assisting you in the diet process and development of the place, as well as protecting the forest disappearing quickly near the towns of Amazon. We are not wasting money for luxuries, the whole point is to be immersed in simplicity of nature.

We prefer people with specific intentions, especially health issues they would like to work with, both psychological and physical. It may be also being on the crossroads, seeking new direction in life. This is something dieta is very good for, by stepping out of your ordinary daily trance you may gain new perspective, more clear than just be a weekend trip to a suburban ayahuasca ceremony. Dieta is also a fundamental step on path of shamanic apprenticeship, so if you feel a calling for learning craft of the healer, also good to put it to the test.

Some more info about dieta process :

Dieta starts with kambo purge  ( optional ) and flower baths, both in different ways cleanse and make you more receptible to plant spirits, removing distractions. Your plant can be chosen beforehand, if you specify your intentions, what you want to resolve or learn.
It is formally opened with first ayahuasca ceremony, during which healers will be additionally able to diagnose you, connect with plant being dieted, perhaps also add another one. You will be also able to see with greater clarity and details the issues present in yourself, perhaps also find suggestion about plant.
After first ceremony you are given first dose of plant. The preparation, amount, frequency, that all depends on type of plant. Some are taken every day apart from the day of ceremony, some just three or four doses in the beginning. They also have different requirements, some are more strict, for example demanding avoiding sun exposure or excessive movements, some more relaxed.
Throughout the dieta you are guided and monitored by our crew, to discuss things coming up, both about your psychological and physical process, and sometimes adjust in different ways. This is highly individual, and so makes no sense to give examples here, but small size of group allows us to give enough attention to each guest's development. What is common that all plants have what Shipibo call shitana, which is negative or dark energy, proportionally stronger according to medicinal and healing power of the plant. It can be contained with right knowledge and approach, for example, consciously working with negative thoughts appearing, like inner criticism of someone you know, when you are able to see it and dominate, you can transcend from potentially self and other harming pattern to better more aware living also later, after the dieta.
Technically, you spend most of the time in isolation. You are served bland meals in your private house, this is also where consultations happen. You are allowed all activity that does not involve seeking distraction from outside, like recorded music, but you are encouraged to draw, write, especially note your dreams, do yoga, sing or play instruments. Part of comunication with plant spirits happens through musical inspiration. You can take walks in the forest, but avoiding going to village and contact with other humans' energies.
Ceremonies happen with intervals of two days in between, to allow integrating experience, physical rest and also time with yourself, away from usual distractions. This process can be compared in some ways with vipassana, however focus here, apart from own self understanding, is to connect too with plant energies.
Final ceremony includes sealing of energies and placing protective arkanas, which are supposed to guard results of your diet and permanent connection with the plant.
You are instructed about post dieta period, during which we are also available for online consultations.

Alongside the Shipibo healers, leading this event is Tata Mundo

Venue Highlights

We realize our dream, living and working in the deep Amazon forest, near plants, close to nature, close to the local healers' community. We deeply believe in the power of medicine. We came to this piece of land in 2015, slowly and prudently built houses and infrastructure, so as to least interfere with the forest we found at the beginning. We designed the whole resort with the idea of deep work with plants during diets in the shipibo tradition.

Accommodations

All our guests during diets are accommodated in single-person wooden houses equipped with a mattress, hammock and mosquito net. In the resort there are two large communal houses in which live shamans and guides, and there is a shared space where workshops and ceremonies take place, kitchen available for everyone, ecological shower and shared toilet. We do not use electric generators for gasoline, we collect electricity from the solar panel. We collect water for washing and bathing from rain, we take drinking water from deep well and filter it with a specialized filter. We try to live as close to nature as possible, without disturbing its rhythm.

Amenities

  • Towels
  • Kitchen
  • Coffee/Tea

Menu/Cuisine

During master plant dieta, especially designed menu is based on requirements connected with type of plant being used. Some are less demanding and allow certain vegetables, others more strict, so your diet is limited to rice, quinoa, green plantains, lentils and some beans. If you eat fish, certain kind of fish is allowed too. Of course there is no spices, salt, oil etc used at all for duration of master plant dieta.

      The Journey

    From stress and anxiety to peaceful vibration of the jungle. From fear through courage to understanding. From pain through the purge to relief. From a cold bath in a stream to a cozy hammock in the Tambo. From suffering through patience to joy. From blame through humility to compassion. From shame through acceptance to love. From oatmeal through oatmeal to oatmeal. From loneliness through the Medicine to togetherness. From scepticism through acceptance to awe. From chaos through discipline to harmony. From Santa Rosa through the Ucayali to the Amazon. From the prison of the past and the future to the freedom of here and now. Those are just a few of the Journeys you can make in Psychonauta. And there are oh-so-many more. All it takes is a little bit of faith and trust. All the rest is already there: - Guidance and Safety: Tata Mundo and Blez are great hosts. Open-minded, wise and always ready to tell you what you need to hear. Mindful about the discipline and respect for the Dieta. They know what they're a doing, you're in safe hands from dusk till dawn. - Care: Volunteers and Staff are beautiful souls who are there not only to help you, but to make you feel like at home. Whether it's food, medicine or what not - they'll be there for you. And, if it comes to that, they will hold your hand when you're scared during Ceremony and they will kick your butt when you're not respecting the Dieta. - Accommodation: Remote Tambo in the forest, a hammock, a mattress, few candles, water in the stream (and in the shower), sun and stars above you. What else do you really need? The conditions are raw but in there lies the beauty of it. It helps you keep the focus on your path. - Medicine: The Plants are chosen and brewed with utmost care, respect and knowledge. The Shipibo Shamans are honest, beautiful people who do their work with passion and attention to everyone in the Maloca. Maestro Felipe has unfinished reserves of stamina and spirit. Their Icaros will guide you on your most important journey yet to have. And when the last day of the Dieta arrives, you realise that you don't want to leave. From Nauta, with Love and Gratitude, Tomek

      No words for explication

    I am not a big lord of the words especially writing reviews but I felt it is a must now. As much as this guys did with even their existence it's amazing. They opens space for us to heal ourself and trying to lead to the right way. It is not a retreat but something more to unity and wholeness to me. These are just regular words and there is no meaning until you feel it. If I had anyone with this few words who made their decision to enjoy them than I was done something for the humanity I guess. Not an easy thing, not a weekend party but those who dare it is a life changing "experience". Thank you to you guys I hope meet you soon.

      When Ayahuasca Calls, Go to Psychonauta

    This two week experinec at Psychonauta was the most challenging and transformative experience of my life. The staff at Psychonauta are so knowledgeable, kind, and truly understand that it takes a village to learn and grow. The two week dieta was very challenging as the food being served was bland (this is expected of a plant dieta). The Shipibo were so kind and without them, this experience would have been a very dull. I would highly recommend learning Spanish before coming on this experience because they have so many profound things to say, however they don't speak much English. The grounds were serene and your own personal hut is such a peaceful sanctuary. I highly recommend this place whether it's your first time with Ayahuasca or your 100th time.

  • Bartek   October 19, 2019

      Thank you for having me

    Two weeks Shipibo diet retreat at Psychonauta was one of the hardest as well as the most beautiful and valuable experiences in my life. From the moment I stepped inside the camp, leaving my comfort zone behind I felt the transformative and purifying energy this place has to offer. Simple, completely new and a bit strange to the first time jungle visitor as myself, the traditional camp setting turned out to be the most beautiful place I ever stayed in. I am not refering only to the green and vibrant landscape around, but to the reconnection with self, nature and the feeling of freedom it gives. Natural, empty of unnecesary clutter and literally transparent hut I dieted in represents the most valuable state of mind I'd ever wish to remain at. All the theory and ideas I had about Ayahuasca as a complete newcomer to psychodelic medicine, couldn't ever come close to the real experience of it... an individual experience, that comes deeply from one's soul and is so impossibly difficult to be grasped by the rational mind. That's why it is so hard to write about it and that's why I wholeheartedly wish everyone to experience the medicinal beauty of Mother Ayahuasca first hand in the jungle. I can't be thankful enough for all the empathy I felt from Mundo, Sylwia, Patrycja, Remik and Ronny who looked after the group during our dietas. Mundo is a beautiful soul, which really comes through during ceremonies. It was mainly thanks to his songs I felt at peace and focussed, which helped me opening up to medicinal force of Icaro songs delivered by the shamans Mundo works with - Maestro Felipe, Maestro Felipe Segundo and Maestra Angela. Again, words cannot describe the beauty of these people and their craft. Each night was like meeting your closest friends and family, sitting around a campfire, singing songs together and sharing the joy of the moment. Thank you for having me.

      Life changing....

    Support is key in this process. There is no lack of love and desire to set you up for success. The environment holds you like your mother’s womb. At times my linear comprehension of life was shut down and I began to see behind the veil into non linear, non ego thinking. Challenging? It was the hardest experience of my life. Rewarding? Beyond a numerical dollar amount. This is the highest form of technology on the planet administered by the most capable shamans and facilitators in the world. Words cannot convey how deep the process was for me and will be for you. Come prepared to know nothing and absorb everything. This is not recreational but the awesomeness of the experience is profound to say the least. Landing on the moon wasn’t recreational either but I’m sure Armstrong smiles every time he remembers the process. Trust yourself. Trust this place. Trust the moment. All thoughts that arise have meaning. Spend time with yourself. If you choose to go here, consider yourself one of the richest and luckiest people on the planet. Go be apart of human history. GO

      Life changing experience!!

    The journey I went on during this retreat is one of the hardest, best things I have ever done. Walking in, I thought I knew what my intentions were, but ended up walking out with way more than I could have imagined. Mundo has build an amazing home, where people felt like family. Where I created, cried, played and learned tools that I will be using forever. He was also great at knowing when to be there to help, and when I needed to figure it out on my own. And the Chamans!! Their voices guided me through darkness and opened up things I didn’t even know I had inside of me! I could not be more grateful to him, everyone that took care of us and those who went on the journey by my side!

      Exquisite experience

    The Dieta retreat I was in, just at the beginning of the month, was one of the hardest things I've done in my life (and I am pretty much accustomed to hard things). In the middle of the jungle, going back almost to the origins of civilisation, working with the Amazonian master-plants, I was conducted by forces stronger than me (and anybody else, for that matter) - by nature itself, in all her untamed power and beauty - to discover my real limits and deep fears, as well as my inner gifts and opportunities of joy.  It was a profound and, for me, painful process that opened another chapter of my life, one that I now welcome wholeheartedly. Therefore I thank the beautiful souls who made this possible: Tata Mundo and his team of magnificent shamans. I cannot be more grateful. Mihaela

  • Kimberly Hughes   September 29, 2019

      So grateful!

    this was my first dieta and I can't thank the stars enough for aligning so that I landed with Mundo and his team at the Psychonauta Foundation for it. the center is on a beautiful piece of land with rolling hills and winding trails that allowed me to feel really immersed in the jungle while also protected– as well as very secluded in my own little world (ie, jungle hut), really allowing the proper space for the dieta work to come through strong. as seen in the photos, each hut's "walls" are full screens and I loved being able to connect with the beautiful plants, trees, huge butterflies, many birds, and the abundance of life that the jungle is home to– as well as with the weather patterns and changes of light and dark throughout the day and night– it was really quite special. everything is simple and yet perfectly cozy and comfortable, and there's a spirit of love there that's felt– no doubt planted by all of the lovely souls that have graced the place with their presence– and especially by Mundo and his team. everything was done with great integrity and high standards while also having a sense of lightness and joy. we got to make our own medicine, were held in our processes in sacred container, and sat in very powerful ceremonies! after more than 30, these were some of– if not– the most powerful. Maestras Angela and Matilda and Maestros Felipe (father) and Felipe (son)– as well as Mundo– are all incredible healers, each in really unique ways. I'm forever grateful for my experience in dieta with these sacred plants and this whole crew– and so much is continuing to flow through even now, weeks later. truly transformational. thank you thank you thank you! <3

      2 week dieta

    I did the two week dieta at psychonauta retreat camp. I went there with an intention to deal with my alcohol addiction. Time spent in silence, immersed in the nature, away from all everyday distractions, opened up space to work on old, stiff blockages in my mind and body. the combination of the strict diet, limited communication, the submission to the rough jungle environment, and the ceremonies was a very intense healing and self exploration process for me. I started my dieta with a focused one question, one intention, but during the process I got to go so much deeper than that, I got to unveil so many more layers that lie deep in the core of any addiction. My experience in the psychonauta camp was truly amazing. The camp is well organized and beautiful in its roughness, realness and closeness to nature. Organizer and the "soul" of the place Tata Mundo is an incredible host, without unnecessary sweet talk or chit chat, he makes everyone feel at home and creates a safe space for each person's dieta process. The ceremonies were small and intimate, I really liked the spaces where they were held. I am happy and grateful that I had my first ayahuasca ceremonies and my first dieta experiences in this special place.

      Aya and plant diet

    A place to really dig deep. I can recommend psychonauta to those who are looking for many forms of healing and wish to do it right. No luxury or distractions, just you and the plants for most part of the retreat. I felt like Blez & co had the right intentions running the retreat, they want to help people grow. Very kind people. And last but not least, the curanderos of the shipibo tribe... amazing. They knew exactly what plant I needed to diet and for that I am so gratefull. It helped my overcome so much of my anxieties and fears. The beautiful and intense aya ceremonies, the vivid dreams caused by the Chiric Sanango, the post ceremonie 'hallucinations', the curanderos and the icaros they so powerfully sing, the the time in isolation, the kind people, the jungle! It has been an out-of-this-world experience ( but then again... its not ;) ) My time spent at psychonauta and my travels after that have changed me. Even though mother ayahuasca did not show me what I wanted to see, I had a specific intent, I did get exactly what I needed from her. The way I see life and how I stand in it .... I feel like I have broken free Muchas gracias a todos <3 Glenn

  • Kevin Stoots   July 26, 2019

      An amazing environment and potent experience.

    I participated in the 12-day retreat with 4 ceremonies. It was profound beyond what I could have predicted. It's still hard to write about what I've discovered - I'm still making sense of it. Some basic details: The jungle setting is incredibly vibrant. Only mosquito screens separate you from the forest and its creatures. The sounds, the smells, the feel of the earth and mud under your feet, the thick, moist air -- the world is so alive here, and being in such close contact with it was really special. I loved having my own little hut where I couldn't see another human. It allowed me to slow down, meditate, stretch, journal, and process. The ceremonies were also very potent. The medicine was strong, the shamanic singers helped to move the energy in the room, and Mundo helped to set reverent and respectful ground rules. The main thing that was lacking, in my opinion, was support and guidance to integrate and process the experience. This is really a "you're on your own" sort of retreat. There's a beauty in that as well - following your own path - BUT I think it's really hard to do it all alone. The shamans are not therapists or life coaches - they sing and they feel energy, but they are not equipped to scaffold a client's personal development. Mundo offered a bit of support, but he's busy running the whole operation and keeping the termites at bay. I would strongly recommend to have a qualified, dedicated person on staff who would be available for therapeutic chats and guidance. I would pay for that.

  • Becca Surman   July 23, 2019

      First Dieta

    Psychonauta foundation is exactly what I was looking for in my first dieta/plant medicine experience. Throughout the two weeks I felt safe and secure to dive into my intentions and reasons for being there. I loved my casita and the connection to nature. Psychonauta foundation is authentic and successful in making plant medicine accessible to people regardless of financial means. I would come back here again and again, I have lots of gratitude and love for this place, Mundo who runs it, the volunteers, the powerful shamans who helped guide me, and the people the foundation attracts.

  • Jessica Melkus   July 21, 2019

      A perfectly held space

    I offer gratitude to Tata Mundo and Psychonauta for providing the time, space, and care to do deep personal work with plant medicines. I got to stay in my own casita away from others, and the emphasis is on personal work rather than group work. While we did come together to chat sometimes, the majority of the time was spent in nature or in casita resting, meditating, or making artwork. With so much time to myself, I really got to notice my mental patterns and discover my own inner teacher while listening to the plant teachers. I felt very safe and taken care of in ceremony. The shamans sing icaros all night long and no one is left behind, and everyone stays together until morning in case someone is needing attention. One note: there is a hike into the campsite from the drop off, so backpacks are much better than suitcases ; )

  • Vincent Kaschner   July 20, 2019

      Beautiful, strange, funky place...

    And truly great and caring people! One can sense their connection with the medicine and the jungle. What I appreciate most is, how well balanced and grounded everything is. The dieta was not always easy, it could be tough and dead serious, but at the same time it was such a joyful experience there... No cosmic talk, no bs, but honest work with a good sense of down to earth humor when needed. Now, a few weeks later, I feel like reborn, reset, and enjoy life again. I strongly feel that the medicine is still with me and growing, almost like having a baby that you're responsible for and have to take care of, and that's what I do. Dziękuję y muchas gracias!

      Powerful healing!

    I ventured to the July dieta as a way to heal and align my energy. I had never competed a dieta before nor had ayahuasca, so this experience was very new to me. We had the opportunity to make ayahuasca and keeping our intentions in mind. It was amazing to see something come from the raw plant state to become this magical and powerful elixir. My humble little casita was perfect to spend time alone, observing myself and nature. The jungle is stunning; always alive, full of movement and wildlife. I have been missing the sounds of the jungle since returning back to society. The shamans are powerful, kind and approachable. Their songs and touch are full of everything one needs to heal, release all that limits and raise one’s vibration. I had a couple of healing sessions from Miyuki. She taught yoga to our group and helped with the place and meals. She is so sweet and full of life. Mundo and the helpers were so kind and took such good care of me and the rest of my group. I can’t wait to see how my healing continues as I make my way fully back into my life. I also look forward to returning again. <3

  • Eva Woodbrook   June 29, 2019

      Thankyou!

    My time at Psychonauta was life changing. Being immersed in the jungle you are directed inward and given the opportunity to undergo the work you need. The jungle is a master teacher. Along with the Ayahuasca and other plant medicines I learned many profound truths that I will keep with me to guide me in life. The work with the medicine was always with the upmost respect to the plants and Shipibo traditions and in a setting where I felt well cared for and supported by the Psychonauta team.

      Great experience

    I went for jungle part of retreat organised by Psychonauta Foundation back in April 2019. Whole retreat was very well organised from the beginning. When we meet Blez ( one of the organisers) in Iquitos and traveled to Psychonauta base in jungle, to the very end when we left rest of the group back in Iquitos after spending 9 days in Psychonauta jungle base. I really like that we actually lived in the jungle, eat very simple food, washed and drank rainwater, prepared ayahuasca and took part in real jungle live. I enjoyed meeting our group and working with all those lovely people. I took part in 3 ayahuasca ceremonies with Shipibo shamans which where also very well organised. We spend time to integrate our experiences together with whole group which I also enjoyed a lot. There was also boat trip on Amazonian rivers. This experience had great positive influence on me. Everything was great and I wouldn’t change anything about it. If you want to experience Amazonian jungle live Psychonauta Foundation is the place to go

      Psychonauta - Incredible experiences in the heart of Amazon and Peruvian Andes

    I have had a pleasure to do 2 week-long shamanic dieta, a retreat and donation ayahuasca ceremony with Psychonauta. First experience was in Peruvian jungle, far away for civilization with Shipibo shamans, basic organic foods and camp surrounded by extraordinary nature one connects with while contemplating on his intentions. Second retreat was a mixture of before mentioned Amazon camp and the most scenic parts of Andes one can ever imagine. During initial part of this retreat we worked with Ayahuasca and during latter, mountain section when we had a trek, San Pedro was our teacher. All the events I have participated at were prepared and delivered professionally. I felt perfectly safe to embark on my internal journey with Psychonauta. Shamans and facilitators (Blez, Mundo) have tons of experience and their compassionate approach is incredibly valuable. If you are looking for a retreat or a ceremony (they organise them in Pisac) look no further.

      Beautiful Dieta

    One of the most profound experiences I’ve ever had. I’m still having dreams and feeling positions of power. The facilitator Mr. Mundo did a wonderful job preparing and keeping us grounded for what was to come. His deep insight and experience were very much a part of my ceremony. His advise I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I appreciate that he keeps this experience affordable for people. The shaman to people on the dieta is the highest ratio I’ve ever heard of for a ceremony that was not private. On a more personal note, I wish I could share my healing with all of you... Or you could experience it for yourself. -Love

      Mundo

    I have deep heart felt gratitude for Mundo and the service he is to us in providing this space for us to heal, he is caring and responsive and works tirelessly to make sure our needs where met during our stay. I also appreciate that he was always available to talk or for any request but being that we where mostly in silence and having time and space to ourselves he allowed us to have all the space and freedom to be alone that we needed Mundo was absolutely part of my medicine by facilitating my Ayahuasca process with incredible song, sometimes to help move something deep and dark within me, other times to make me laugh, the best medicine of all. Mundo is very open to sharing this beautiful sanctuary for as long as we wish to stay. Very hospitable. Thankyou brother Mundo for everything you do.

    I had a Powerful Dieta. I sincerely recommend this Retreat to all my family and friends.The Shipibo Shamans; Felipe, Felipe Jr. and Maestra Angela were Outstanding !!! I can still hear their divine spiritual Icaros. Mundo's Icaros were out of this World, you are a very talented man my friend. I started my journey with kambo then, a two-week transformation process happening in isolation, a kind of shamanic vipassana that enables contact with spirits of healing plants. My Ayahuasca sessions were also very Powerful, I am still ONE with every living things out there. You have to experience it yourself to fully Innerstand this gift from the Universe. Muchas gracias both Felipe's for healing my stomach, you worked so hard to help me, I am very grateful for everything. Thank you very much Tata Mundo for your hospitality.!!!

      A very Funny and amazing Teacher

    You could tell that he had lots of experience, went around and saw many different places, cultures and people. Hes very straight forward, obviously knows how to handle people, at times serious when needed but also has a very funny side to him. what stuck with me the most was that he commented that they are thinks that can´t be explaint, thought or put in words, but can only be felt with the heart. something that followed me through the weeks and the ceremonies and something i very deeply experienced during those times. Hes very easy going and reminds the people that the world and life is not as hard as we make it to be, but that it can be a place of Joy, we just have to make the right choices. All in all a great Person. If you read This, Mundo, I hope your goals and dreams come true and that you´ll go to far away places to share this great Medizin with many more. love&peace

  • Luca Schmitz   May 25, 2019

      Life changing experience

    I went to Nauta for two weeks to do the masterplant dieta and ayahuasca ceremonies and i have to say that not only the experience i made during the ceremonies, but also living in isolation in the jungle under the master plant and special dieta, really did open up my heart to many things and changed my life throug that. It challenged me in ways i didn´t imagine, at times physically and mentaly very strong, at others very subtle. it opened up a new perspective for me. It is one thing to be open and educated about things and to (think to) "know" what to do to live a fulfilled live; It is another thing to feel something so strong, something that we all had and most lost at one point in our lives. It was amazing to remember, and that is something that stuck very strongly with me (Also a comment of Mundo that made me reflect on that topic alot :-) , that there is thinks that can´t be put in words or thoughts, but can only be felt with the heart. The People working there, the Shamans and the whole atmosphere of the place is amazing You could tell that the work that these people are doing comes from a place of love. helping other people; Not for making money or putting up a show. Just give it a try if you feel like its the right thing for you. im sure you wont regret it:-)

      Ayahuasca session in Pisac

    I'm extremely grateful about the session I had with Mundo and the loving Plant. As always, she answered to my intention in the most powerful way, and the presence of Mundo with his sounds, music and care made it possible. The place where we had the ceremony was perfect; we had the option of having a room to sleep afterwards and the family in charge of the house was really loving and open to receive us. Thanks again Mundo, I will be visiting u again soon 🌻

    The best place at the world. I spent only 3 days in Nauta but it was incredible experience. The village has awesome pure climate. Ceremonies and work with plants gave me a new strong life. I can't wait until I can come back.

      Beautiful Embodyment of the medicine.

    Maestra Matilda is amazing shaman. I never worked with a woman shaman in the plant medicine world before, and working with her was a whole new world of medicine embodyment and connection to the feminine energy of mother nature. I'm in deep gratitude for working with Matilda and hope to come back one day for another journey with her!

  • Linoy Sana Raichman   February 19, 2019

      Beautiful experience

    I was in the jungle with Psychonauta Foundation retreat of master plant diet and it was amazing experience. Strong, sometimes difficult but overall very healing journey. I was drinking bobinsana, and had beautiful transmission with the plants. The ayahuasca ceremonies were very strong, and the shamans are amazing. I loved the jungle and this medicine.

  • Julian Loive   February 15, 2019

      Life changing experience

    As a first timer who never been to the jungle and never being part of a dieta like this, I was a bit nervous before arriving to the retreat. I took part in the two week program and it is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I felt completely safe with the people who took care of me. Tata Mundo is a good guy who it felt great to talk with during the dieta and after the ceremonies. He and the other guys as well as the shamans truly knows what they are doing and they really want the best for you. This place is the real deal without any luxury, just you and the jungle. The food is simple, same with the huts. It’s all you need, no more or less. Would love to come back one day.

  • Jennifer Hou   February 11, 2019

      Very grateful for such a valuable experience

    The retreat center was a perfect place for me to work on my intentions. Although very basic and isolated, this is a great place to reconnect with nature and yourself. The great staff and shipibo shamans make you feel welcome and cared about. Every participant has a private tambo, which I liked a lot. The food according to the plant dieta can be quite basic, but that’s part of the process, and it is always prepared carefully and with love. For me, it was just the right environment for pursuing my intentions, and I received everything I wanted and so much more! Concerning the facilities: If you need more comfort like a private bathroom, this place isn’t for you. If you want to work on yourself and find your place on this planet, this is exactly where you need to be. So thank you so much, your work is truly appreciated :)

      Ayauascha cerymony

    I want recommend this retreat. I had a cerymony near Pisac and the experience was very good. I appreciated the good energy and intention this cerymony was definitely to help people and not for money. I felt in a group of friends. I hope to do other experience with Tata Mundo. thanks

      In the heart of Ayahuasca's home

    It may not be top nodge, when it comes to comfort or luxury, or the general ideas that are usually connected with those two words, but it was definitely worth more than my time. I spend a month on one of PsychoNauta's retreats, with Masterplant dieta, cooking of Ayahuasca, and some life transforming and wonderful ceremonies. I really enjoyed to be among like minded people in the community, and to meet real, down to earth Shipibo shamans, and to experience the visionary power of their icaros. The medicine itself was cooked with great respect for traditions, and the crew were awesome. I am strongly considering coming back for another masterplant dieta, and I wish I could participate in the shamanic song workshop they are offering in February. But I still have a lot of integration work to do, from the month I spend with PsychoNauta in November last year. I can't believe it has been two months already. It was really big for me, and the changes I had to make upon my return to Denmark was extraordinary and are still ongoing. Thanks to the medicine, and to the fascillitators. Thank you all, for your contribution to what's going on in my life right now. I changed my name back to my original birthname, got a new passport, moved to another part of the country, and I've got a new job, which I like better than the old one. And this was only some of the things I realized during the ceremonies with PsychoNauta that I had to do. There's still a long way to go. I honestly received so much. But maybe in a year or two, when I have learned a bit more spanish, I'll come back and see you.

  • Uffe Vilford Jensen   February 08, 2019

      Authentic and trustworthy

    I was with Mundo for about a month in Peru. I had never met him before, when he picked me up at the airport in Iquitos. We drove to his place around Nauta, in the Amazon Rainforest, and I'm not sure why, but it didn't take long, before I had the feeling that I could trust him. I did a two week master plant dieta in isolation, in my own cabin in the woods, and he took good care of me, came around with food, and guided me back, when I wanted to break the isolation. My master plant was Toe, which many people are afraid of. But I was not afraid to do it with him, and I felt that I connected with Toe, in a good way. But maybe two weeks is a little bit short time, to do a master plant like Toe, at least in my situation. The 4 Ayahuasca ceremonies during the first two weeks were very intense and I experienced so much healing on a personal and emotional level, and it really helped me to get some clarity about my future. But it was hard work to, I remember crying a lot, but also laughing. On the third week, Mundo and his crew taught me and the other 3 participants how to make a proper Ayahuasca brew. We made two very large pots full of Caapi and Shakruna boil on the fire for two days, and enjoyed the ceremonies with our own medicine, and our own songs. There were many different Shipibo shamans, some of them changing for each ceremony, and they all sang beautifully, sometimes two our three at a time, and Mundo was singing with them sometimes, but not their songs, he's got his own very unique style, in which you can truly hear how much he has been travelling around, in different cultures, but also where he comes from. In the last week he took us up into the Andes mountains for a few treks with Wachuma(San Pedro) in some breathtaking and sincerely astonishing landscapes. I am very grateful for everything he showed me and gave to me during my one month retreat with the Psychonauta foundation in Peru. The best things I got out of it came directly from the plants and the spirits, but I am very thankful to Mundo for arranging and setting up the space, and for his insisting on honoring the plants and keeping the diet, for translating some of my questions to the shamans, and so on, and so on. I hope we'll get a chance to meet again..

      Power of plants and people

    I just finished my diet with Ajo Sacha guided by Mundo and Shipibo masters in Amazon selva and It was the most intense and beautiful experience in my previous life. I never learned so much about myself in just two weeks. I could feel the real magic of Shipibo Shamans and power of plants touched my body and soul. After many many years of struggle with demon sitting on my chest the complacency has finally set in my mind. This is also very beautiful and peaceful place in the middle of the jungle which let me reunite with the nature. First time in my life I was able to really clear my thoughts and body, feel the gasp of the forrest and vibration of mother earth, surrounded by fantastic, wise and selfless people who are always ready to give me an advise and any kind of help. They allowed me to reborn and realize incredible power of creation inside me. Now I got clear vision of my life goals and so much energy I can barely handle :). I'll never find words to say how grateful I am. So don't be scared and leave your doubts, Tata Mundo will hold your hand and never let you down !

  • Barbara Kaniewska   January 26, 2019

      Only with Mundo

    I know Mundo for more than ten years, we were travelling together before he settled in Peru. I finally had a chance to visit his place in the Amazon last year and I was shocked how astonishing it is. We've decided to shoot a documentary about Mundo and his work with plants. We've spent there around two weeks, shooting, recording sounds, talking. We were participating in a series of ceremonies connected to the diet that was happening at the same time. I had a chance for the first time to drink ayahuasca in the Amazon and I knew I can feel safe with Mundo. He introduced me to the plants way back on a different ground and I always felt safe and taken care of. In the jungle the experience was even more incredible. Shipibo singing, the medicine freshly brewed, sounds of the jungle and Mundo who was giving this special rough energy to the whole thing. The food was great, simple and organic. Mundo is a perfect character if you need to talk, he helped me to understand what I was going through plus he can be super entertaining in the way he sees the experience with the medicine. Even though the place is also rough and crude, as jungle is, I consider it as home where I can return.

      transformation

    Tata Mundo I had pleasure to have few ceremonies with Tata Mundo. Amazing character! I really like his approach to singing - experimenting with your own voice. This helped myself a lot to find my own inner voice. The way he works with people makes you feel safe and grounded. I had a chance to work with Mundo when I volunteered in Psychonauta Foundation camp. I learned a lot, hard to describe, priceless! I highly recommend!

  • Cynthia Jurgiel   January 08, 2019

      Thank you All-Ways

    This was definitely one of my best experiences with beautiful aligned , heart-centered beings who serve this medicine. Tata Mundo and Blas show a great respect for the implications of their work: the way they take care of all details during the ceremony , the use of healing sounds , words, attention to every person during their process and even after it, that's something to highlite, for sure. I truly recommend them. The way they work through donations and in a beautiful place with local people sharing their experience with humbleness, respect and patience really touched my hear. and also the sweetness they showed to every being there, another preocious hallmark in this healing field.

      Psychonauta - one of the rarest gems on the retreats' map

    At the times of widespread consumerism in spiritual disguise, I see Psychonauta as one of the rarest gems, so hard to find. I've attended 2 retreats they facilitated in Peruvian jungle, one in 2015 and the other in 2017. Both were life changing journeys. We were guided by Tata Mundo and his wonderful partner through the less obvious paths, the hidden places, the local curanderos harder to find and meet. Deep in the jungle, by all means far away from the commercial, easy accessible retreat centers. Our habits and views were put to a sincere test more than once. And yet we all felt guided, respected, safe. What was ignited there and then, still lightens my path up. The Psychonauta crew beautifully builds the bridges between the local tribes and us, the comers. On the way, you may learn plenty of things from them. From respecting the World to living from the heart and with courage. Thank you, Psychonauta! <3

      Go to the Moon with Mundo

    At the times of widespread consumerism in spiritual disguise, I see Tata Mundo as one of the rarest gems, so hard to find. I've attended 2 retreats he facilitated in Peruvian jungle, one in 2015 and the other in 2017. Both were life changing journeys.

Deep in the jungle, by all means far away from the commercial, easy accessible retreat centers. Our habits and views were put to a sincere test more than once. What was ignited there and then, still lightens my path up. It's not only about how beautifully and respectfully he builds bridges between the local tribes and us, the comers. It's also about all the things you may learn from him. Like respecting the World, living from the heart and with courage. No sugarcoating. With all his life experience, he is like a living container of adventure and wisdom. The journeys we had under his guidance were, just as Mundo is - both rough and compassionate, curious and respectful, humorous and honest. Most of all: authentic. While entering this world so different, under his guidance I felt safe, seen and supported in the process, yet encouraged to step out of my comfort zone. I consider Tata Mundo both a great guide and a great friend, and very probably - one of the most wise and inspiring persons I've ever met. If I needed to get to the end of the World, to the Moon or simply home (whatever it means), I would trust Mundo as my guide!

    I honestly recommend to anyone that interested to change his Life and be the change our planet need, to have trust and faith in the retreats and ceremonys that Mundo is Guiding. I had the honour to take a part in his holy work and pass transformative event 2 weeks long. I very appreciate his gentle but firm approach, his good heart and pure intention and the patience that Tata has towards his participants. very like his unique transformative sessions in them he combines ancient traditions with modern ways, and find the key to your heart for you to open for the new and upgraded yourself. May you all be blessed with the Spiritual awakening

      Amazing transformation in the Amazon forest.

    Welcome brothers and sisters. I want to share with you my wonderful experience that I experienced during my stay in the Amazon jungle, which opened my eyes to reality and the truth that surrounds us, all due to the Psychonauta, organizer Blez and shamans cooperating during my diet. My ideologies, views, superstitions and current thinking were changed. I experienced the power of shamanic rituals and magic on my own skin, I became a different human being. All my problems and health problems were erased in just two weeks, I have been struggling with them for years. So I recommend everyone to experience unforgettable moments in this place where there is complete peace and quiet, like the psychonauta medical base. I greet with all due respect all who have helped me solve my problems, may God bless you. Witajcie bracia i siostry. Chce się podzielić z Wami moim cudownym doświadczeniem jakiego doznałem podczas pobytu w dżungli amazońskiej, która otworzyła mi oczy na rzeczywistość i prawdę jaka nas otacza, a wszystko to za sprawa Psychonauta, organizatora Błażeja, jaki i szamanów współpracujących podczas mojej diety. Moje ideologie poglądy przesądy i dotychczasowe myślenie legło w gruzach. Doświadczyłem na własnej skórze mocy szamańskich rytuałów i magii, którą mnie z miłością obdarzyli po której stałem się innym człowiekiem Wszystkie moje problemy i dolegliwości zdrowotne zostały wymazane w zaledwie dwa tygodnie, a z którymi borykałem się od lat. Polecam wiec każdemu by mógł przeżyć niezapomniane chwile w tym oto gronie i miejscu gdzie jest pełna cisza i spokój, jak baza medyczna Psychonauta Pozdrawiam z całym szacunkiem wszystkich którzy pomogli rozwiązać mi me problemy niech Bóg Was błogosławi.

Your safe with him and he s there when you need him. Ceremonies are led with respect for a tradition and your individual process. His camp is the right place to go

      Don’t be afraid, go all the way.

    Sometimes we need to escape our comfort zone to discover that we can be truly free and alive! Freedom is a state of no fear. And fear is our biggest enemy, nothing else in the world holds us down and limits us more than this. The solitary of the woods, far away from our daily demons, can liberate us and show us our true face. For me this was a life changing time. Lovely hosts from the Shipibo tribe and Mundo, who is a bridge between the Amazonian wisdom and the western civilization made it happen. Place and people I will always keep in my heart. Nights and days I will never forget. Genuinely and pristine surroundings you can’t find anywhere else. I’m coming back soon!

    Some experiences are good and some are exceptional. Mundo is the best guide I know and it is such a privilege to be spending time with him. He not only leads you through the spiritual journey but also through the mind/body transformation. He knows exactly what you need and will give you no more and no less. Bringing in not only culture from Peru but also all the influences from the vast travels as well as mixing in Slavic roots inspirations.

      Tata Mundo - the best

    Amazonia to moje młodzieńcze jeszcze marzenie o podróży do dziewiczych drzewostanów w dorzeczu potężnej Amazonki, Ukajali i Maranion. Marzenie o dżungli zamieszkałej przez Indian, żyjących w zgodzie i szacunkiem dla praw natury. Dopiero jednak jako starszy już człowiek, dzięki Psychonauta Ravel w 2017 roku trafiłem do zielonych „płuc ziemi”. Otrzymałem szansę mieszkania w osadzie zbudowanej przez Shipibo i poznania ich życia w symbiozie z przyrodą. Miejsce mojego pobytu z chatami pokrytymi liśćmi palmowymi, osłoniętymi moskitierami oczarowało mnie totalnie. Osada Światka jest położona na wzgórzu, ze strumieniem poniżej, otoczona ścianą drzew i krzewów tak pięknych, że trudno sobie wyobrazić. Zarówno w dzień jak i w nocy dżungla żyje swoim rytmem. Odgłosy tego życia to jedna, wielka symfonia różnorodnych dźwięków. Dźwięków kojących duszę, dźwięków naturalnego życia roślin i zwierząt. Przez cały czas czułem się częścią tego wielkiego organizmu. Dzięki Światkowi miałem okazję zobaczyć oraz poznać rośliny, zwierzęta, ludzi jakże innych od naszego europejskiego świata. Pływaliśmy łodzią po dwóch potężnych rzekach Ukajali i Maranion oglądając delfiny słodkowodne. Wędrowaliśmy wydeptanymi przez indian ścieżkami, pokonywaliśmy mokradła, strumienie, wzgórza i doliny. Spaliśmy w parku narodowym Contamana, podziwiając 50 metrowy wodospad i gorące źródła. Mieszkaliśmy dwa dni w cudownej oazie Huacachina na pustyni, jeżdżąc crossoverami i na deskach snowbordowych z wysokich wydm. Poznaliśmy prawdziwe, niereżyserowane życie Shipibo oraz Peruwiańczyków w osadach, miastach i na targowiskach. Jedliśmy warzywa, owoce i ryby prosto z puszczy, przygotowywane przez tubylców na ich sposób. Leczyłem ciało i duszę według diety i medycyny szamanów Shipibo. Urok Amazonii i Peru, doskonała organizacja i program Psychonauta Travel zachęcił mnie do ponownego wyjazdu w 2018 roku. Tym razem po diecie i medycynie Shipibo w osadzie Światka udaliśmy się w Andy. Mieszkając u gościnnego Inki Santiago wędrowaliśmy wysokogórskmi szlakami podziwiając dawne warownie Inków położone wzdłuż Sacred Valley. Spaliśmy w namiotach w górach, dolinach i na przełęczach, kąpaliśmy się w lodowatej wodzie jeziora i pod wodospadem w wysokich górach. Zwiedziliśmy architektoniczne cuda cywilizacji Inków w Machu Pichu, Cusco, Pisac. Była to moja druga niesamowita i magiczna podróż do Peru. Dzisiaj mogę powiedzieć, że dzięki Psychonauta Tavel i Światkowi byłem na dwóch wyprawach życia.

      Deep transformation

    One of the places I'll always have in my heart, after many ceremonies in Europe here I'll "get" what cleanse and purga means. Loving and humble group of Shamans allowed me to face and understand what "letting go" means. Absolutely recommended 2 weeks dieta in which one can truly work on whatever is stored deep down of soul/mind. Big Thanks to Mundo&Blez for organising this so transformative for me experience.

Marzeniem o puszczy zamieszkałej przez Indian, żyjącej w niej w zgodzie z naturą i szacunkiem dla praw przyrody. Dzięki ofercie Psychonauta Tavel w 2017 roku trafiłem wreszcie do zielonych „płuc ziemi”. Ta oferta to mieszkanie w osadzie zbudowanej przez Shipibo, gdzie można poznać życie w prawdziwej symbiozie z przyrodą. Miejsce pobytu w chatach pokrytych liśćmi palmowymi i osłoniętych moskitierami oczarowało mnie totalnie. Osada Światka jest położona na wzgórzu, ze strumieniem poniżej, otoczona ścianą drzew i krzewów tak pięknych, że trudno sobie wyobrazić. W nocy dżungla żyje swoim rytmem, jedną, wielką symfonią różnorodnych dźwięków. Dźwięków kojących duszę, dźwięków prawdziwego, naturalnego życia. Przez cały pobyt czułem się częścią tego wielkiego organizmu. Dzięki Psychonauta Travel miałem okazję zobaczyć oraz poznać rośliny, zwierzętami, ludzi jakże innych od naszego europejskiego świata. Pływaliśmy łodzią po potężnych rzekach Ukajali i Maranion oglądając delfiny słodkowodne. Wędrowaliśmy wydeptanymi przez indian ścieżkami, pokonując mokradła, strumienie, wzgórza i doliny. Spaliśmy w parku narodowym Contamana, podziwiając 50 metrowy wodospad i gorące źródła. Mieszkaliśmy dwa dni w cudownej oazie Huacachina na pustyni, jeżdżąc crossoverami i deskami snowbordowymi z wysokich wydm. Poznaliśmy prawdziwe, niereżyserowane życie Shipibo oraz Peruwiańczyków w osadach, miastach i na targowiskach. Jedliśmy warzywa, owoce i ryby prosto z puszczy, przygotowywane przez tubylców na ich sposób. Leczyłem ciało i duszę według diety i medycyny przygotowanej przez szamanów Shipibo. Urok Amazonii i Peru, doskonała organizacja i program Psychonauta Travel zachęcił mnie do ponownego wyjazdu w 2018 roku. Tym razem po medycynie w osadzie Światka udaliśmy się w Andy. Mieszkaliśmy u gościnnego Inki Santiago. Stąd udawaliśmy się na wysokogórskie wyprawy podziwiając dawne warownie Inków wzdłuż Sacred Valley. Spaliśmy w namiotach pod przełęczami, kąpaliśmy się w lodowatym jeziorze i pod wodospadem, zwiedzaliśmy architektoniczne cuda Machu Pichu, Cusco, Pisac. Była to moja druga niesamowita i magiczna podróż dzięki Psychonauta Tavel. Dzisiaj mogę powiedzieć, że były to wyprawy mojego życia.

      Trust Matilda

    Beautiful soul with so much love in her heart! I did 3 ceremonies with Matilda, one was private. Although it was a hard process, it was the most powerful ceremony in my life. She knows what she is doing, you can really feel the healing process. Just let go, trust this person and everything will be good.

      Psychonauta

    Psychonauta's headquarter in the Amazon is a place run by a group of an amazing people who are also my friends. I've visited the place this year for two weeks part diet and to shoot a small documentary there. I had a chance to participate in the ceremonies held by three local curanderos. The ceremonies were safe with an amazing singing and a very special atmosphere, each time different with different rhythm, intentions and length with a freshly cooked brew. Raw but extremely picturesque place where I couldn't stop photograph and record sounds of the jungle. During the stay no matter how difficult it was I felt taken care of and fed with a very good simple food. The stay was so intense that I almost didn't have a chance to leave the place during the two weeks stay and I didn't really wanted. I want to go back there for a full diet next time! I know Mundo for a long time, he was our guide and a bridge between us and shipibo healers during the ceremonies. His presence gives the experience an extra kick, he has a great knowledge and attitude that opens you up.

      Highly recommended!

    It's authentic, pure and healing. The whole crew is exprienced in working with plants and you can feel it from the first question you asked. The shamans can be trusted, they are doing a great work there. I had the chance to participate in private ceremony (only me, shaman and facilitator) which was the most powerfull one I've ever had. I did dieta despite I was there only one week. It was the best decision I could make! I highly recommend Psychonauta if you're looking for a raw but real experience.

      Healing centre the world doesn't deserve

    I just came back from 6 days of ceremonies in Psychonauta. The venue is perfect to get detached from the pollution of the city with no distraction, your work with yourself starts even before you meet the plants or healers. Blez and Swiatek, my hosts, are very experienced in work with the plants, now not only powerful male and female healers (shamans) but understand the jungle. If you come with an open heart and are actively looking for help, you have a good chance of finding it here!

      Couldn't be more happy she was my first shaman

    I have experienced 2 ceremonies with Mathilda and her daughter. As for everybody it's hard to explain in detail what happened, long story short, I believe this experience will stay with me for the rest of my life. Can't wait to come back to the Psychonauta healing centre who together with Mathilda created fantastic environment for my first experience with Ayahuasca!

      Pure.

    The place where I found and lost myself, so intensive two weeks diet was. Like a jungle weather the weather of my being was changing several times a day: cloudy, shiny, rainy, stormy. But if you don't want to go out - just stay at home, rain is beautiful when you watch it from the window. How important it is to have this home, the point of steadiness inside.. Who knows how long it will take to build my home. But no masterpiece will appear without taking a drawing tool in you hand:) I've just touched an empty sheet of paper and don't even know where the line will go, but I'm full of a deep gratitude to Psychonauta for giving me this unique chance, this possibility. I'm grateful to facilitators and shamans for their presence and everyday support, for being next to me in this journey. The part of me has stayed there in a jungle, with these people. I wish you, dear Psychonauta growing up not to loose the puriness of your idea and to save a human touch I felt during my short stay.

      Mother Earth

    I smile any time she comes to my mind. So many warm memories.. A small woman with an infinite soul. It seems there is a place for everyone in her heart like in the heart of our big mom Earth. Strong and tender, wide and cozy, a kid and an elder. My soul flyed open immediately next to her without any reflection. I know, you'll not read it, but I'm so grateful for your mother's care, energy and strength, you gave me, dear maestra Matilda. I'll keep this beautiful memories as long as I only can. Smiling to you. Lots of hugs.

      Divine work

    Thank you for organising and leading that journey to ourselves. That was a intensive process of transformation and self discovery that I could pass only with your help and the help of the great crew that you succeed to collect around you. Your wide heart and pure intention will continue with me like a fire in a field. With your guidance and the help of the Sacred medicines combined with the holy places you choose I successfully overcome my distractive paterns and transfom them to bless and benefit to me and all around me. I only on my way home but passing same places in a new form make me happy and satisfied. Still difficult to believe that only 2 weeks passed since we meet, I already miss you brother and imagine our next meeting. GOD bless you and your family, keep doing your divine work, I will push the waves of transformation and healing forward. May our paths will cross again soon.

      Podróż życia

    Z Psychonauta przeżyłam wspaniałe i niezapomniane chwile. Wiele wyniosłam i nauczyłam się chociaż czasami było ciężko. To zmienia człowieka i otwiera go na niesamowity świat. Poznałam wielu cudownych ludzi i szamanów którzy robią wszystko abyśmy czuli się jak najlepiej. Polecam to miejsce.

      The real deal

    After having experiences in two other, more western oriented centers (which were great), this camp found me in the perfect time to go deep into a two and a half month process in which I went through two master plant dietas (chiric sanango and chuchuhuasi) and an integration period, I can say that the service psyconauta is providing is for the ones who are looking to go deep in to their psychic and their soul. Words cannot express the journey I had with this beautiful community of soul searchers and strong shipibo maestros. With a more traditional approach, I was able to form a deeper relationship with the master plants and the benefits are beyond words. If you are ready to face yourself and release old thought patterns that do not serve you anymore, this is where I’d say you should go to. If it sounds right for you, trust your guts and intuition and book a flight. Blessings 🌈❤️🦋

      satiating time

    Od połowy września 2018 do połowy października korzystałem z opieki i gościnności Psychonauty. Jeżeli miałbym ten okres podsumować dwoma słowami, to byłyby to słowa: „czas sycący”. Okres, w którym każda chwila napełniała mnie nowymi wartościami, przekazami, odkryciami. W dżungli uczestniczyłem w 4 ceremoniach Ayauaski, łaziłem po lesie, pływałem w Amazonce. Czas beztroski, a jednocześnie czas dalekiej podróży do źródeł moich strachów czy bólu. Byłem z nimi na treku po przełęczach Andów, pluskałem się w gorących źródłach, godzinami mknąłem w dół na rowerze. Chociaż pogoda nas nie pieściła uważam, że zostałem hojnie obdarowany w kolejne spostrzeżenia, odkrycia, poznawanie siebie. Każda chwila była piękna. Jestem głęboko wdzięczny Psychonaucie za tę podróż. A Ty Przyjacielu, jeżeli myślisz o wyprawie do Peru, pomyśl na poważnie o skorzystaniu z wiedzy, umiejętności a także „lekkości bycia” Pschonauty. Warto. I na pewno na to zasługujesz. Paweł Krzemiński From mid-September 2018 to mid-October, I used the care and hospitality of Psychonauta. I can summarized this period in two words: " satiating time". A period in which every moment filled me with new values, messages, discoveries. In the jungle I participated in 4 Ayauaska ceremonies, I was walking in the woods, I was swimming in the Amazon. Carefree time, and at the same time, the time of a long journey to the source of my fears or pain. With Psychonauta I was on a trek on the Andes passes, I was splashing in hot springs, I was riding down the bike for hours. Although the weather was hard, I think I was generously given away to new observations, discoveries, getting to know myself. Every moment was beautiful. I’am deeply grateful to Psychonauta for this trip. And you, my friend, if you think about going to Peru, think seriously about using the knowledge, skills and "lightness of being" of the Pschonauta. You deserve it. Paweł Krzemiński

      Big Mundo

    To anyone who, with the help of Peru, would like to take a trip inside yourself - do it with Mundo. He ran me for three weeks. We were in different situations, in the jungle, in the mountains, in the sun, in the rain, in the ceremonies ... I came back all and sooo happy. It will not be an easy journey, it does not have to be nice but: A). You are safe. Mundo will take care or everything B). You have support, answer to every question, help and friendship. C). You have a lot of space. Your freedom and personality will not be tied to anything. Grow in the direction you need. And what else to write here? Go to Peru, go with Mundo. Do każdego, kto przy pomocy Peru, chciałby wybrać się w podróż do środka siebie – zrób to z Mundo. Prowadził mnie przez 3 tygodnie. Byliśmy w różnych sytuacjach, w dżungli, w górach, w słońcu, w deszczu, w ceremoniach… wróciłem cały i baaardzo zadowolony. To nie będzie łatwa podróż, nie musi być miła ale: A). Jesteś bezpieczny B). Masz wsparcie, odpowiedź na każde pytanie, pomoc i przyjaźń. C). Masz mnóstwo przestrzeni. Twoja wolność i osobowość niczym nie będą skrępowane. Rośnij w takim kierunku jak potrzebujesz. I cóż tu więcej pisać. Jedź do Peru, jedź z Mundo. To anyone who, with the help of Peru, would like to take a trip inside yourself - do it with Mundo. He ran me for three weeks. We were in different situations, in the jungle, in the mountains, in the sun, in the rain, in the ceremonies ... I came back all and sooo happy.

      Dieting with bobinsana

    I have spent two weeks in the jungle with this amazing healer. Her powerful icaroses were extremely helpful over ayahausca ceremony. I decided to participate in whole process because I was having anexiety and depression symptoms. As a Psychologist I'm aware of the fact that amazonian medicine can heal psyche, but without a curandero ( whos role is actually being a therapist during the journey) no tool would be helpful.

      Shipibo Master Plant Dieta

    Last year in May I participated in 11day Shipibo Master Plant Dieta at Psychonauta. Now I know that was the best investment in my life, so far. I spent 11 days in isolation at simple but beautiful hut inside the jungle. I had 5 Ayahuasca ceremonies and dieted master plant Ajo Sacha. Two facilitators were bringing me diet food every day and supporting with presence and translation during the ceremonies. Ceremonies were led by two Shipibo shamans (man and woman) who had more than 30 years of experience. Every ceremony I went deep, meeting with my traumas, suppresed emotions, forgotten memories. To me whole 11 day dieta was like one ceremony. I also learned a lot from the jungle itself - how to be in the moment, how to live simple life, aprreciate what's already here and now and much, much more. Facilitatators working there as well as shamans are very professional. I would even use the word - specialists. They are very connected. I had all I needed. Care, translation, food, real powerfully shamans. I got picked up from the airport. I felt very safe all the time. In the same time I didn't get any unnecessary stuff which is so common these days. The facilitators didn't play guru's. They really knew what they were doing keeping everything as simple as needed. Nobody tried to install his philosophy or point of view when - just after the dieta - we had one day of integration time. The center itself is located in beautiful part of the jungle close to the village named Nauta, by the river Marañon. It's around 15-20min walk from the town. The dieta houses as well as ceremonial building are beautiful, made from local wooden and plant materials by local people. The center supports locals, making friends with villagers giving them jobs, buying from them. There's very nice kitchen, rain water tanks, filtered water, shower, solar charger. Beautiful place! I'll be back! Highly recommend!

Thank you!

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

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola
