About This Event

This deep immersion retreat is an opportunity to enter into a sacred space away from habitual daily life. This allows oneself to confront disharmonies and to comprehend and heal origins of suffering and disconnection. The deep immersion takes the participant on a journey of profound self-healing and understanding through the discovery of the universe and wisdom within. The aim is to reconnect with the natural joy of being and to reach a greater understanding of existence and life as a whole.

Stages of the retreat


The retreat starts with a purification period before entering the shamanic diet. The participant goes through a physical and emotional cleanse with purgative plants, diuretics, saunas with plant baths, special diet and introspection.

Shamanic diet

The diet is a process of solitude and inner work with master plants and the healing energies of nature and the cosmos. The participant is following a strict diet of plain whole grain rice and green plantains and ingest a designated master plants three times a day. During the diet one observes silence and abstain even from eye contact. At times Sanango will come to speak to the dieter, help with guidance and invoke the spirit of the plant. During these visits one can speak with him (and the translator and facilitator in case it is needed).

During the entire process Sanango works as a guide and healer within the subtle and spiritual realm as well as in one-on-one consultations and therapies. He does this while always respecting the direct experience and proper understanding of the participants themselves. The consultations serve as a basis to understand and integrate what one has experienced in the ayahuasca ceremonies as well as in the shamanic diet and throughout the process. This allows the participant to bring to a conscious level what he or she may need to comprehend in order to truly heal.

Post diet, harmonization and integration

The post diet is an important stage of the healing process, it is during this time that the comprehension and healing is integrated into the heart of the participant. In another words, it gets embedded into the core and applied in daily life. This period is best done in a protected environment and it also serves as an act of gratitude to the universe for the compassion that was received overall in the process. During this process there are shamanic consultations, ayahuasca ceremonies, hatha yoga, meditation and lectures on eastern philosophy and shamanism.

“Sanango is an incredible healer, full of love, compassion, and truth. You feel immediately his thousands of years of wisdom and deep connection to the Universe, it is truly an honour and a pleasure to be in his presence. He has such a deep understanding of every being, I feel that he sees all of my layers and right into my soul. I am certain he knows and understands me more than I do. His way is beautiful – deep, direct and honest communication, and also a lightness that heals and means it’s difficult not to smile in his presence. His icaros are so powerful, it is a real and humbling honour to journey with Sanango, and he is ever present for each participant in the sessions, and throughout the dieta, really it is something very incredible to experience this. I feel deeply blessed to have received so many gifts during my dieta and through the sessions.” Emma Dibben, UK
