About This Event

Ayahuasca and Plant Medicine Healing Retreats in Peru

Our 11-day Ayahuasca Healing Peru is located deep within the Shipibo homeland of the Peruvian Amazon. Our meeting point for our journey to the Sui Sui retreat center is the bustling riverside town of Pucallpa, Peru.

AYA Healing Retreats offer a life-altering opportunity to connect directly with the shamanic healing traditions of the Pucallpa region and our retreats are guaranteed to catalyze profound spiritual transformation and a return to wholeness for those courageous enough to immerse themselves in the process.

We offer an 11-day immersive retreat only. This enables us to maintain the integrity and superior quality of the healing experience for our participants, shamans and the Amazon itself. On our retreat you can expect to receive thoroughly individualized care: this it, not a one size fits all approach to plant medicine healing.

We are proud to offer our participants personalized, fully translate with our Shipibo shamans, tailored plant medicine treatments and enduring support via our outstanding integration service. We also pride ourselves on educating our participants about the current threats to the Amazon rainforest, and the ancient healing traditions of the people who call it home through a series of lectures and interactive workshops. We want our retreats to be extensive, wholehearted and profound and for the knowledge, our participants gain here to ripple out and positively impact their communities in the West.

What to expect from our Ayahuasca Retreat at the extraordinary Sui Sui plant medicine healing center, Peru:

5 powerful Ayahuasca ceremonies led and fully supervised by our expert curandero and Shipibo plant medicine healer Don Miguel

A comprehensive consultation and a personalized Master Plant Dieta

Individualized plant medicine treatment tailored by Don Miguel

A personal, fully translated consultation with our Shipibo Ayahuasca curandero Don Miguel

Fascinating group lectures that reveal the sacred traditions of the Shipibo traditions, language, knowledge, and Icaros ( or chanting)

Magical jungle walks that enable you to connect deeply with the spirit of the Amazon

Opportunities to actively participate in the preparation of the sacred Peruvian Ayahuasca brew and teacher plants and trees.

An immersive art workshop with a local visionary artist

Please note: After returning to our home countries and day to day routines we may find it difficult to “keep the fire” burning and to maintain the level of openness and authenticity that we experienced whilst on retreat. Included in your retreat investment is one private Integration Session via Skype. These will be scheduled at a time that is convenient for you 2-3 weeks after the retreat.

Elio is an amazing leader! On point organisation and structure. He is well connected in the indigenous community and has a great understanding of the spiritual journeys and the psychology of us humans. Elio is highly likeable and someone you will trust from the beginning of your journey.

Venue Highlights

The Sui Sui Centre houses a large ceremonial space called a Maloca (communal house); it is here that we will where we will participate in our Ayahuasca rituals on several of our evenings. The centre also hosts a main kitchen and dining area and several communal areas, which are excellent for enjoying great conversation with others and admiring the ever-changing lakeside. You will have your own private bungalow, which faces directly onto Lake Cashibocacha. Sui Sui is fully equipped with an emergency fire protocol as well as several fully stocked first aid kits. The camp also hosts several Western toilets and modern showers and hand washing sinks.

Sui Sui has reliable access to the Internet as well as phone reception, however we recommend that you take care of all matters that require your urgent attention prior to joining us on retreat, either while in Pucallpa or in your home country. This will enable you to be fully present and to receive the true healing benefits from not only the sacred plant medicines, but from the superior beauty of the surrounding forest and lakeside environment.

The lake surrounding Sui Sui is remarkably clean and free from the pollution we are accustomed to that characterizes our urban waterways. To preserve the integrity of the river water, we only permit our guests to use biodegradable and chemical free soaps, shampoos and toothpastes. We will have chemical free soaps, insect repellents and shampoo available at the camp for a small fee, but we do encourage you to bring your own.


While at Sui Sui you will be enjoying a private jungle bungalow (or Tambo) with a spectacular view of Lake Cashibocacha. Your Tambo is fully protected from mosquitos by a special screen surrounding the doors and windows. You will have your own comfortable double bed to rest on each night and all privacy you need to recharge and contemplate the day’s events. The Tambo’s are rustic, yet spacious and are guaranteed to offer you an authentic Peruvian forest experience.

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with basic goodness in an environment of people who share a vision for a better society. Wimberly

Retreat Guru's Vision
