About This Event

The curative diet with master plants and purges are the most important ancestral methods of traditional medicine in the central jungle of Peru. With them it is possible to reach deep levels of healing, restore the balance of the body, the stillness of the mind and spiritual awakening. The retreat is aimed at those who want to cure different types of ailments, restore their balance and connect with themselves, with nature and divinity. Tobacco is used as a vomitive to clean the digestive tract and purify the body. Ayahuasca allows to deprogram harmful states of mind and spirit, and provides subtle states of consciousness. Both - tobacco and ayahuasca - allow the master diet plant to work in all its magnitude, giving us purification and awareness. During the diet of the master plant, a strict diet is followed that gives conditions to the medicine to settle properly in the body. A lot of emphasis is given to rest, introspection and concentration, as facilitating states of healing, and the interpretation of moods and dreams, as the main subtle manifestations of medicine in the body, is guided. We invite you to this wonderful experience of renewal, healing and awakening of consciousness.

"I have had the opportunity to travel a lot, but that place is unique. I was able to connect with nature. I solved issues in which I had years of formal psychotherapy working, changed my way of dealing with work and relationships". Francisca Vargas
