Amazonian Master Plant Retreat

About This Event

Join us on a jungle retreat to the heart of the Amazon to experience plant medicine from the native Shipibo tradition of shamanism.

At the spiritual center, healing work with Shipibo Master healer Ricardo Amaringo, Shipibo shamans, Ayahuasca and the Master plants will provide a unique opportunity to reconnect to spiritual practice and safely enter deep medicine work.

On this 10 day retreat, in addition to 6 Ayahuasca ceremonies, you will work directly with a master plant based on your personal needs under the guidance of Maestro Ricardo Amaringo. 

When we connect to a master plant we can experience physical, emotional and spiritual healing. They work in combination with Ayahuasca to clean internal blockages, heal past traumas, center and open our body, mind, spirit and soul. 

Throughout this retreat we will offer individual support, our goal is to provide a safe container for your healing and transformation. There will also be group classes on how to navigate Ayahuasca, ceremony and your master plant diet with tools and that we have learned in our 10 year immersion with plant medicine. We will also provide insights into integration and will follow up on your experience with a group integration call.

"Markus helped me to go deeper into my own healing process with compassion and also in navigating my path with the medicine. His warmth, wisdom and experience is something special. I am grateful to know him and for his presence on my retreat." JG, Seattle-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Taking the leap of going to the jungle for ceremony was something I wasn't confidant doing on my own, but with their knowledge and assistance the journey felt safe and supported the entire time (both literally and spiritually). The extra care and experience they bring to help integrate the things that came up during ceremony's allowed me to go deeper into the healing process. I may have found myself stuck in parts of the journey, if not for the skills they offer to navigate the challenges and move through difficult places. It's hard to put into words how much I learned, the insights gained and healing that happened. Much gratitude and love for what you ladies do! "  PH, Canada
