About This Event

Each of us would like to exist here and now, would like to act with childlike peace in accordance with its internal voice. Be in harmony and abundance. Have a sense of purpose, feel connected with each other, with people, with nature, with the cosmos.

Individualism, technology, ubiquitous consumerism, lack of time makes us feel more and more lost, tired and sad. Change is possible, if we confront what does not serve us, we will accept it and take action.

We invite you to Peru for a transformative trip into the depths, to rebuild and renew the lost connection, by silencing the mind, working with plants, living as a community, meditation, massages, contact with wild nature, with the elements. You can renew your potential, find a new way in life, heal your physical and mental illness, solve emotional traumas from childhood and adulthood, heal relationships, creatively inspire yourself, have mystical and spiritual experience, discover new or forgotten talents.

PART I -  JUNGLE MEDICINE RETREAT   1-9 April 

In the Amazonian part of the trip, we will immerse ourselves in the daily life of the forest settlement. We will live in wooden houses deep in the forest, in jungle conditions. We experience a very strong and intense energy that fills the constantly singing and evolving forest. Wild forest is litmus paper, there is no comfort in it, it will show all the complexities of the ego, it is a place of verification of views, a field for cooperation training. Therefore, during our event, we want to try to live as a collective tribe, a well-functioning collective organism. Together we will meditate, work, cooking ayahuasca, but also there will be time for internal explorations, individual work, body work, relax and intimate conversations. The central axis of our forest transformations will be the night juggling ceremonies where with the sounds of Shipibo icaros, in total present and mindfulness, we will throw away what is old and unnecessary for us, we will travel, heal, feel and understand. We will connect.

Each day we will start with a half-hour morning meditation and half-hour body work and breath work.

1 April 

We will meet in the city of Iquitos, a unique city of outcasts and runaways from the old world. The only such a large city in the world, with no road access, which can only be reached by boat or plane. We will leave Iquitos in the direction of Nauta and our forest camp. We will travel by bus and motocarro, and the last half-hour section is overcome by foot through the Amazon forest. We get acquainted with the life in the settlement : accommodation, shared lunch and meeting in a circle.

2 April

In the morning, we start working with ayahuasca, cleaning lianas, washing leaves, collecting wood. In the evening, we go to the first Shipibo ceremony to the nearby maloca.

They work together in the old style, create a sophisticated, deep ceremonial and healing experience.

3 April

That day we rest after the events of the previous night. After a light jungle breakfast, it is time to chill in a hammock or walk to the local waterfall.

Trip guide:

Błażej Czwojdziński „Blez” 

A traveler and psychologist, one of the builders of the base in the Amazon forest. Fascinated by the potential of plants with psychedelic properties in the transformation process. In his work he helps to pass border experience safely, is a translator and guide in contact with local healers, and conducts integration sessions.  (contact info blocked)

This is a genuine and caring community of people with deep knowledge of medicine, man, and nature. Beautifully situated in both the jungle and in the mountains they work closely with the locals and the land. My stay was very healing, and not the least tremendously fun! I wholeheartedly recommend anyone who are looking for real transformation to check it out, and also consider a longer stay. - Dabao Lu

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.

Directions

Our center is located in Peru, near Nauta, on a 24 hectare plot of wild Amazonian forest, 2 kilometers away from the Maranon River. It is best to fly to Iquitos in the Loreto region and then continue by car, taxi or public transport on route number 103. From Nauta you can reach the resort on foot in about 40 minutes. Usually, we pick up our clients from the airport or main square in Iquitos and provide a private transfer to our resort. So you do not have to worry about how to reach us, our carers will pick you up from a previously agreed, easy to find place.

      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

    Hi, everyone. I joined Psychonauta foundation camp at beginning of may for 9 day Amazon retreat and totally changed my view of the world I live in and my life. With all my honesty I feel like my ceremony started from the first minute I step in to the jungle and connect with Mother Nature until I left it 9 days later. First time in the jungle ever, first time outside Europe and the first feeling I get was, “finally I came back home “ Organisers in the camp where so warm,welcoming and helpful explaining everything so good before the ceremony,that when I was struggling during my first ceremony, “I got lost in time and space” I could hear the hints and clues in my head given by them before the ceremony how to work with it witch massively helped me go through. Most important role of course played shamans and their Ikaros, the holy songs that will elevate you to different dimensions,universes,worlds filling Maloka your heart,body,mind and soul with something so beautiful so warm and pleasant that is so hard to describe in words, filling of being privileged sitting in the same room with such holly spirits was unreal. And all above that you will get one to one, face to face individual healing ceremony witch you never want to end. After the ceremony people you just met yesterday become your brothers and sisters, unbelievable. I just wanted to hug them all and thank them for experiencing it together. All the ceremonies took place at night witch help you see much more than you could see during the brightest day. and the simple ,raw and unglamorous way but in the same time so marvellous and beautiful place the camp was set,unimaginably played the massive role,today more than 5 weeks after I left the jungle I’m still Learning new lessons everyday and spreading love and peace of mind wherever I can. I’m not good talker but I’m Hoping that someone will get a little bit of that feeling I did. Will recommend to everybody. Love

  • Urszula Kakareko   June 10, 2019

      Abundance for all

    I love working with Blez cause he gives a lot of Space for you own experience. No mothering and minimum guidance so you can reach for your power yourself. Big heart person with positive and creative approach to life.

      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.

  • Cawi Buie   June 04, 2019

      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

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.!!!

      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:-)

      Life changing

    I’ve attended a two week ayahuasca and master plant dieta with psychonauta in the Peruvian jungle. We’ve received a warm welcome from the facilitators who’ve helped and guided us during our stay. I can’t thank them enough for all the support and hard work. It’s obvious to see that they dedicated their lives to help other. Everything was well arranged and I couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome. The ayahuasca ceremonies with the amazing shamans changed my life and gave me so much insight about who I really am. I am very thankful For this experience.

      Amazing!!

    I have done many Huachuma walks in the Sacred Valley, but they are extra special with Blez. He has a keen sense of the dynamic of the group, and holds space beautifully. My hope is that others get the chance to experience this higher connection with nature, and with themselves.

      Huachuma Hike in the Sacred Valley

    I was very blessed to have found this event on Facebook when I did. I have worked with medicinal plants before in the past, and it was my connection with Ayahuasca that really freed me my from sadness and gave me back my life. I have only worked with Huachuma once before in the past in a ceremonial space, but the experience that Blazej offered in Pisac was something far beyond what my mind could ever comprehend. It had as a big impact on me as my Ayuhuasca experiences, maybe even greater. The way he involved the local community and showed us a special hidden gem of the Sacred Valley - that I did not even know existed after being here for almost 5 months. I truly felt a deeper connection than I have ever felt with nature and myself. We hiked passed many lagoons, we were washed by the sweet rain, and witnessed waterfalls and water streams running down the mountains like veins of the earth, and hundreds of free roaming Alpacas running down the hills - it was truly magical. A little girl from the local community running through the fields in excitement when she saw us, because the remoteness of the scenery was broken with our presence for a while.We sat down to observe the astonishing beauty. It was a special moment indeed. It was as if the whole group was drawn together and everyone shared a special and safe space for laughter, healing and self-discovery. It was like ten years therapy done in one session. There are not many words that can express the profoundness of this experience. It gave me back my trust, in life. It assured my that just as nature takes care of every functioning aspect of the universe, so does it take care of us. Thank you for an amazing experience. Highly recommended!

  • César Mendoza   February 27, 2019

      muchas gracias

    So for me particularly it was a very deep and dark beautiful acceptance experience as i consider darkness part of my natural being and as wise as the light side. It all started in the kinsakocha laggon and then we all drank wachuma for the group hiking.So My sensorial experience was very sleepy and sensual connecting to my femininity mostly. I decided to add cannabis to my experience so i had some puffs here and there aside from people cause at the beginning there was the typical tabu comment about ganya( not acknowledging it varies on each individual) so i just gave space to the group. Observing the beauty of the apus was such a great inspiration reminding me the epicness and sweetness of life. The rain started and naturally it was very cold so the group and i went down to the gathering point and had some coffee break or something. It was a nice reunion full of random jokes and reactions. After that, we all went to Santiago's house and sat in front of the fire while eating or drinking tea. What i felt was learnt for me was this beautiful black flower of strong femininity through my body memory and i embraced that flower to receive the message of pure grounded love. Later on, Santiago and his son played a nice song for us in a sense of gratitude and friendship, it was amazing. I really appreciate the work and effort of Blazej and the people who supported his purpose. Just keep going!

      Great mind with a big heart

    Tomasz is one of the people that discovered Psychonauta by accident and then... decided to stay. Even though he was the least intrusive host, it would be difficult to imagine this place without him. He combines great knowledge of plants and human beings with an extraordinary ability to listen. A great mind, with a big heart, working in tandem with Blez, they both turned my stay in Nauta into one of the most beatiful memories of my life

  • Travis Bennett   February 20, 2019

      Blez with Psychonauta foundation

    Blez is a good-hearted kindred soul, a great teacher and friend, as dieta facilitator he is very knowledgeable of plant medicines, the dieta process, and the general human condition in relation to this particular form of therapy. I remember remarking to him after our dieta that he has to be incredibly brave assigning himself responsible for so many people going through such rapid emotional and physical transformations, it's quite bizarre actually! I'm very happy with Blez and with the Psychonauta Foundation! I Would recommend him and the foundation to anyone seeking the genuine Shamanic-healing experience!

  • Jeffrey Koot   February 19, 2019

      Very good Ayahuasca

    I have had done many Ayahuasca ceremonies. And seen many Sjamans. This was not only one of the cheapest retreats. It was one of the best.

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!

      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.

  • Linoy Sana Raichman   February 19, 2019

      Great

    I spent 2 weeks in the jungle retreat of Psychonauta Foundation for master plant diet, that was organized by Blez, and it was one of the most profound and amazing experiences of my life. He served good medicine, and his approach is very professional, yet down to earth and shamanic. I'm in gratitude for this experience and really recommend.

      'An oasis of calm'

    Being in Tomas''s presence is like being in oasis of calm. He is an amazing listener and he was a great support to me during the whole retreat. I loved times spent together in the kitchen and space he created for me where I could share my experiences after Ayahuasca ceremonies, and Tomas would ask the right questions to guide me through this process of integration and translating it so I could make a better sense of everything I experienced. He is very intuitive, gentle, loving soul with lots of joy to share and gratitude to spread. Highly recommending working with Tomas if you are looking for someone authentic, loving and non- judgemental!

      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.

      Retreat review

    Interesting. I learned many new personal healing techniques. I could tone with the teachers, the icaros stay with you, become you. I entered this space in a relationship and it taught us what love was, is. Now. Intense. Resonance energy brings instinct that then activates an emotion that the mind tries randomly to translate. Chuchuasi was a creative definition of passionate anger, a release of great str. Bogansana was already strong empathic abilities made stronger, vivid dreaming again, funny thought id lived all my dreams already. Blazej might have given up smoking weed however he is a permanent pot-head punk guru. I could not have picked a better experience, traditional yet open of the mind. The shipibo we worked with. Matilda and Phillipe in particular amounted to the most effective ceremonies of my 88 ceremony rich life in terms of healing my relations and all aspects of my being. I am going to go chew on some Ajo Sacha.

      Strong Dieta experience with thanks to Blez

    I was on Diet Chiric Sanango with 4 Aya ceremonies that Blez care after. It was verry strong experience for me, and when I had dificulties Blez helped a lot. Big support and a lot of love! All reatreet was done verry profesional in amazing place deep in the jungle but not so far, so I didnt forget that there is outside world. A lot of changes in my life thanks to this retreat. Thank You!

  • 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 :)

  • Jennifer Hou   February 11, 2019

      Great person who really cares

    I have met Blez as a heartwarming facilitator who really cares about you, your wellbeing and healing process a lot. It doesn’t matter if he has to put more time into you, or even go to the market to buy some special plants that you need in addition...he gives his best, and his intention is not money driven, he has no interest in luxuries. Instead, I feel that he has a strong sense of purpose to help you and the local Shipibo people, and in having the best impact on the environment and the planet. Great person, fully recommend!

      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.

      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

      ** DEEP BOW FOR BLEZ **

    In this beautiful place in the middle of the Amazon I ended up in a warm bath of love. The center is Raw! exactly what I needed. No nonsense. Do not expect luxury or a well-designed commercial center where you will celebrate your holiday. In this place you get 'the real deal', so that you can really connect. Because of the pure energy I could go deep into the diet. With so much love these 6 weeks where over before I notice. Where Matilde had already called me to go into depth with the dieta, I was so lovingly guided by "Blez". It was precisely because of its pure purity that I could surrender completely. Although it is not an easy task he has accepted, he does the assignment of mind with so much surrender, very carefully and thoughtfully. His strength lies in his caring and approaching. With so much dedication he lives the medicine. You see that in everything. When you are in his hands, you know that he will do everything to help you put you in your power. He really makes you feel at home and comfortable during your Dieta. He also puts suggestions and positive criticism into action, making him an example for many. Deep bow for his share in the whole. Grateful for his friendship, he is really a great asset to the medicine world. He is making the difference.. Thank you from the deepest from my heart dear Blez.. ♡

      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.

  • Marta Ligier   November 29, 2018

      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!

  • Martin Petrus   November 27, 2018

      Exceptional experience

    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.

  • Slawomir Czyz   November 27, 2018

      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.

  • Marek Majewski   November 26, 2018

      I want to come back to you ...

    Amazonia była moim młodzieńczym jeszcze marzeniem o podróży w dziewicze, nieprzebyte lasy dżungli w dorzeczu potężnych rzek: Amazonki, Ukajali i Maranion. 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.

  • Diana Wadolowska   November 12, 2018

      Yes Blez :)

    Being in a jungle for the first time in such raw conditions only with medicine and yourself can be hard and surprising. But with a host like Blez everything was great. He helped me very much at the begining of my dieta when I had the biggest doubts. I felt that I could trust him and share my thoughts with him. The right person in this beautiful place.

      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.

  • Bart Gumowski   November 03, 2018

      Fantastic host

    Blez is a trained psychologist and currently has years of experience working with plants. But that doesnt matter to be honest. What matters is that he is a great person that will make you feel comfortable and guide you through what would be the most profound experience of your life. A brother that you always wanted to have, even if you didn't know it.

  • Bart Gumowski   November 03, 2018

      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!

  • Bart Gumowski   November 03, 2018

      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!

  • Tania Skryhanava   October 31, 2018

      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.

  • Tania Skryhanava   October 31, 2018

      Like an elder brother:)

    I wish I had an elder brother like Blez) My dieta process wasn't facile and I'm grateful to Blez for being next to me in this journey, for his shoulder, gentle care and open heart. I'm grateful for my gratitude.. sounds strange.. but this feeling was one of the most healing and impregnating during my process. You are beautiful, dear Blez, fly as high as you can:) Greetings and my warmest hugs. T.

      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.

      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 🌈❤️🦋

  • erez kramer   October 20, 2018

      Real brother

    Staying in the camp for two months and a half, I had the chance to meet Blazej after the first month there, after my isolated dieta. His open heart, generosity and no bullshit no drama attitude was an important part of my dieta integration. You can trust this man with eyes shut. Thanks brother for being 🙏🏻

      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

      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!

      Shipibo Plant Dieta

    Last year, in May, I participated in Shipibo Master Plant Dieta faciliated by Blez in Nauta. I spent 11 days in seclusion, eating 2 meals a day (no salt sugar etc, plain food), drinking master plant (ajo sacha) daily. During 11 days I participated in 5 Ayahuasca ceremonies with 2 Shipibo shamans - Matilda and Pancho. Blez participated also as a translator and carer. Everything what I experienced during 2 weeks in the jungle was life-changing experience. Now, almost 1.5yrs later I see the benefits and gifts I received. The quality of my life simply became much higher. I'm healthier, happier, I discovered much more about myself than ever before I.e. before retreat I would never sing or play any instrument but during my dieta Blez borrowed me his spacedrum and after one of the ceremonies I just started playing and singing. Now I can play a few different instruments and sing and still I feel it's just the beginning of my discoveries. My relationships became much better. There's much, much more. Complete methamorphosis. Blez did amazing job co-creating this beautiful space for healing. The jungle is amazing, dieta huts, shamans live in the neighborhood. All you need is already there. From simplicity to the complexity. I highly recommend to anybody who wants to know him/herself, or heal, or just experience peace and joy in off-grid community.

Thank you!

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