About This Event

Join Johanne at Tambo Ilusion for a journey of self-discovery as you explore this wonderful healing art and its amazing possibilities. Dedicate four days to discover a new and delightful ability in yourself. Reiki is a wonderful form of self-care practice that helps reduce overall stress and bring about overall well being. 

You are invited to partake in Tambo Ilusion's Reiki initiation retreat, which consists of attunement to the first degree of Reiki to learn to heal with your hands. Offer yourself the wonderful opportunity to learn and share the Usui Reiki system - which is a simple, non-invasive healing system that balances the body's energy centers. It is one of the easiest and most natural forms of holistic healing there is.

This is an effective workshop for people who are interested in stress management, self-healing and personal growth with the added benefit of learning how to channel healing energy to help others, too. The ability to channel Reiki is then with you for life, and the more you work with it, the more you will be amazed at its inspiring power. Leave your doubts behind and jump head first in to this life changing experience. 

This retreat is offered all year round (except for March and August). There is a maximum of 4 participants per retreats to ensure an intimate experience for all.

We offer this retreat at these fixed dates at the price of 720 USD per person in single occupation: If you are two people sharing a room (that has two double beds), the cost is 1240 USD (620 USD per person).

March 25th - 28th 2019July 22nd - 25th 2019Sept. 23rd - 26th 2019       

If these dates do not work for you, this retreat can be hosted at a date that is convenient for you depending on availability, of course.  The cost of running a private retreat for you is 920 USD.  We guarantee that this retreat runs even for only one participant!  If the reservation is for two people sharing a room, the cost is 1440 USD (720 USD per person).

This retreat is a wonderful all-inclusive option which offers each participant the opportunity to soak in the Reiki energy and just "be" in order to become more in touch with this wonderful energy so that it can flow more freely through you and your life. Gentle yoga and guided meditation sessions, delicious healthy vegetarian meals, nature walks, an herbal bath, and free time to enjoy the natural beauty of this nature conservation area will assist you in your Reiki attunement process. This program is for anyone who wishes to be introduced to Reiki in a calm and beautiful environment. It is possible to gain your first degree (out of three degrees) in a short stay with Tambo Ilusion. You will be able to channel Reiki healing to yourself and to others before the end of this retreat. "When you heal yourself and assist others with their self-healing, you heal the earth. You do make a difference!" A quote by Laurel Steinhice, Channeling the Earth Mother.


I recently just spent 4 days at Tambo Illusion completing my level 1 in Reiki and it was truly a wonderful 4 days! The structure of the training was great and left ample time to enjoy some free time exploring the property and simply connecting with nature! All round it was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful break and simply getting in touch with nature!

I had one week in Tambo Ilusion doing the yoga retreat, hikes, and the Reiki Level 1 intiation. The place is just beautiful, and relaxing, all you hear are the sounds of the jungle. Everything is designed and built in the most natural way possible fitting in perfectly with the jungle setting creating an atmosphere of attunement with nature, so don't expect 5 star accomodation. Johanne is a wonderful yoga teacher, and Reiki master, and overall just a lovely person, as is Armando who is also a great storyteller and source of local knowledge. The food was brilliant! and mealtimes were not only delicious but great fun! Spending the week with these wonderful people in their jungle retreat, learning more about yoga, herbal medicines and of course the Reiki has been a life-changing experience for me! Dani, Australia

Venue Highlights

Tambo Ilusión is a beautiful nature reserve of 14 hectares (34.6 acres). There is an ecosystem that has formed around the natural spring that Armando, its owner has been protecting for nearly 35 years. Here the wildlife is safe to roam. More than 100 species of birds have been identified, there are over 500 species of trees, there are frogs, butterflies, monkeys, etc.

Tambo Ilusión offers a safe and comfortable environment for people as well! It's a wonderful place to do a retreat with master plants.
The 'Maloca', the space where the ceremonies are held is spectacular. It has hard wood floors and it is screened in for your comfort. The soundscape (the natural chorus of wind, birds, monkeys, insects, chickens) will transport you to a place of natural serenity deep within yourself.
The natural spring that we refer to as 'la laguna' is the jewel of the property. It is pure bliss to relax on the dock and observe the wildlife listening to the sound of the water running in the creek that is formed by the natural spring. Ideal place for processing, doing some soul searching, etc. Plus, it is just a joy to swim in the natural spring.
The plant baths are taken in a space created especially for this purpose in the creek.


The wooden tambos (cabins) are rustic and quaint, they have two very comfortable double beds and mosquito netting. A hammock hangs on the porch of each tambo.
There’s no need to bring your nature white noise music, you’ll have the real thing right outside your door!

Amenities: shared bathrooms, flush toilets, hot water showers and we offer an electricity-free environment (except in the dining area). You will disconnect from the outside world as there is no Wi-Fi service. You will benefit greatly from a digital detox.

Guests rave about the nourishing and delicious food served here, especially omnivores who were a little concerned about eating a vegetarian diet for the duration of their stay with us!
Healthy, colorful, varied and nourishing meals are prepared with care and love.

Wholesome vegetarian meals are prepared 3 times daily. Fruits and vegetables are fresh and seasonal. Some of the fruit come from our own trees (citrus, papayas, mangoes, bananas, star (contact info blocked)).
Special dietary needs can be accommodated with advanced notice.


Tambo Ilusion Retreat Center is easily accessible. It is a short 1 hour and 15 minute flight from Lima's International airport to Tarapoto local airport. It is a 20 minute ride from the airport to the center of town by mototaxi. Yet one feels totally immersed in nature once on the property.

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:

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica
