9 Day Ayahuasca Retreat - FULLY BOOKED wait list only

About This Event

Our ayahuasca retreats are developed in close co-operation with the Shipibo healers on our team, as far as possible in accordance with their traditional use of the medicinal plants of the Amazon. Our approach to healing, our staff and overall facilitation has evolved since 2007 and into this highly effective healing program.

An ayahuasca retreat at the Temple offers our guests an opportunity to experience deep healing which reaches to the energetic roots of trauma, imbalance, and disorder, as well as initiates a long term journey of self-reflection, self-discovery, and spiritual transformation. The foundation of our retreats is traditional Amazonian plant-spirit healing complemented with progressive therapeutic and eastern psycho-spiritual practices to ensure effective and long lasting integration.

We are committed not only to providing the safest and deepest ayahuasca healing and plant spirit shamanism experience in the Amazon, but also of equal importance, ensuring that you are able to sustain, cultivate, and integrate your healing experiences back in day-to-day life after your retreat.

We constantly strive to create the optimal conditions and orientation on our retreats to work with ayahuasca and since 2007 have been passionately dedicated to providing a caring, professional, and supportive setting – always ensuring a safe, sacred space for our guests to heal, integrate, and transform.

Venue Highlights

The Temple recognizes our ayahuasca healing retreats as sacred work and is dedicated to providing the optimum conditions for profound, long-term healing. Through ayahuasca, our retreats move us into right relationship with ourselves and others. By bringing clarity to where and how we must change – and treating the psycho-spiritual and emotional imbalances that impede change – ayahuasca and the Temple’s Shipibo healers help guests toward a healthier, more integral, and joy-filled life.


All of our accommodations are private. For our retreats hosted in Center 1 (9 and 12 Day Retreats), you will have the option of your own tambo (jungle hut) which has a private compost toilet inside. Most guests are in their own tambo unless they are coming with a partner with whom they would like to share.

If you participate in a retreat in Center 2 (14 and 23 Day Retreats), you will have a private room in a shared building and will share a compost toilet with a few other guests. We currently cannot accommodate two people in one room in the Center 2, however couples can be placed in rooms next to each other.

Both centers provide a central showering area with 3-4 showers.

We provide you with linens for your bed and a towel. These are changed for you several times during the course of a retreat.

**Please do not book flights or make any travel arrangements until your registration and medical information has been reviewed and you have been approved to attend a retreat.**

In order to come to the Temple you would need to fly into Iquitos International Airport. We recommend booking your flights for one day before and after the start and end date of your retreat to first allow yourself time to acclimatize to the environment and then allow yourself ample travel time and time to reintegrate into the “mainstream” world once the workshop has ended.

Each retreat group will be picked up on the first morning of the retreat at a designated pickup location in central Iquitos by one of our staff members and then travel to the Temple together from there. The group will be brought back into Iquitos after breakfast on the last morning of the retreat and will arrive in town by early afternoon (usually 2pm at the latest).

The price of a Temple retreat includes transportation from the group pickup place in Iquitos to the Temple on the first morning of the retreat and transportation back to Iquitos on the last morning of the retreat. The price does not include any flights, hotel costs, or transportation to the group pickup on the first morning.
