Event Highlights

  • Ayahuasca ceremony in the jungle
  • San Pedro ceremonies
  • Sacred plant medicines (aside from Ayahuasca)
  • Private attention and constant contact with Curandera Lucia


On ceremony days, you'll have plenty of time to relax and meditate or take part in some of the activities we offer.

At around 6-7pm, you'll be given a plant bath in preparation for the ceremony.

At 9pm, we will meet in the Maloka.

By 10pm, those who are drinking will have had their drink.

Curanderos will remain in the Maloka with guests, until late in the night when guests chose to sleep in the maloka or return to their dorms.

Here at Mai Niti, our focus is healing rather than simply offering Ayahuasca experiences. We work with a range of traditional sacred plant medicines tailored specifically to the requirements of each individual guest.

The Maestros may prescribe powerful plant medicines prior to the use of Ayahusca, which could in turn affect the amount of ceremonies you attend.

Those with previous Ayahuasca experience and non-specific issues are likely to drink Ayahusca at all 4 ceremonies - for those who are concerned about this process, please get in touch, often we can provide clarity prior to your arrival.

Guests who would prefer to adhere to a Nobel Silence can be provided with the space and privacy required to do so.

Ceremonies are often complimented by the presence of Leonardo’s son, Maestro Mishako.

After each ceremony, guests are welcome to join the sharing circle - where you’re invited to share anything that may be in your heart or on your mind. This is a powerful opportunity to accelerate the process in which you integrate the lessons and guidance received from the medicine.

All guests are also invited to create their own Shipibo artisanal handcrafts, guided by Lucia.

If you’d like to take part in any of the following, please let us know in advance:

Ceremonial clothing

Personal Icaro ceremonial tapestry from Lucia

Visit to a Shipibo crafts centre

Boat tour of the river

Tour into the jungle

By the way!

We also hold magical camping retreats, deep in the Amazon jungle. Get in touch if interested.

And those who can't make it on specific dates are invited to join us whenever they would like - just get in touch.

"Listening to why they do what they do, I've never felt hearts as pure as theirs feel. I have had hundreds of ceremonies, and last night i sat with them and it was truly, the most powerful ceremony, i've ever had" Trinity De Guzman

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne
