Ayahuasca healing & Spiritual Retreat
- Transformative mystical healing Ayahuasca ceremonies.
- Incredible healing Icoras in many cases unchanged for many hundreds of years These icaros, these songs sung by the Shipibo shamans, serve as manifestations or doorways to the patterns of existence and creation. The shamans are accessing our basic spiritual coding through acoustic summoning, and then reweaving the pattern back to its original whole and healthy form.
- Kambo has been used to clear what’s referred to as “panema” from the mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Panema is synonymous with negative energy, and kambo clears this dark aura from the patient. It essentially realigns the chakras and stimulates positive wellbeing. This can be especially helpful for patients who are combatting addiction. Kambo is said to connect the user more deeply to their physical bodies, and to increase psychological stability, as well as feelings of compassion and self-love.
- Nunu is an indigenous sacred medicine made from medicinal trees, barks, and leaves from the Amazon Forest. Nunu is also referred to as rape, which is pronounced, “ha-peh” in English. Nunu is primarily made from tobacco but also includes cacao and macambo nut, all of which are ground down into a fine powder. Rape is consumed through bamboo or bone pipes, either from a shaman, or self-administered. The powder is blown into each nostril in a quick motion. This initial intake of the medicine creates a break in thoughts, and feels quite intense, and not very pleasant. After the medicine has been shot into the nostrils it will clear the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual bodies. The powder will move through the body by expelling mucus back out through the nose, or down the back of the throat.

About This Event
Share the ultimate journey of self discovery and healing with extraordinary people from all over the planet.
We work with incredible male and female Shipibo Shamans. Our life changing retreats honour the traditions of Shipibo healers and indiginous plant medicines in a safe supportive intimate group setting with no more than 12 participants. Individual attention is given before during and after ceremonies.
Our retreat takes place in a beautiful jungle location and is a perfect setting for those seeking physical, mental, emotional healing, spiritual and personal growth. The ceremonies are led by staff with years of experience who humbly assist our guests as they work towards restoring physical health, emotional wellbeing and happiness through expansion of conscious, self discovery and self acceptance.
Sacred plant medicines Nunu, and Kambo are optional plant medicine therapies included. These extraordinary medicines fully compliment ayahuasca ceremonies by cleansing the body of toxins while un-cluttering and focusing the mind. Leading up to each ceremony floral baths are offered. These ritual baths wash away negative energy and open communication between people and plants. Guests are encouraged to focus on their intentions and make mental preparations to get the most out of each ceremony
Ayahuasca ceremonies begin in the evening and are held in the Grand Maloca . Shamans lead healing ceremonies performing sacred rituals and singing astonishing healing icoras ( songs ) that have remained in some cases unchanged for thousands years. The following morning guests will meet in the maloca for group share. Group share is optional however we do encourage our guests to participate. Sharing your experiences and listening to others is normally very helpful and cathartic for everyone.
Reconnect with Mother Nature in the heart Amazon rain forest. Take in the breathtaking sights, sounds and scents of the lush rain forest during guided jungle treks, trips to monkey island and star gazing by boat.
A spiritual journey is not so much a journey of discovery. It’s a journey of recovery. It’s a journey of uncovering your own inner nature. It’s already there”.

Booking your flights and rooms
Most International guests will have a short layover in Lima and then take a short flight to the city of Iquitos, Peru
We do recommend arriving one day early and staying a extra day in the event of any unexpected delays. Arriving a day early will also allow you time to rest and recuperate before the retreat begins.
Getting to downtown Iquitos from the airport is a piece of cake. When you land in Iquitos there will be plenty of motorcars and taxis waiting for travellers to arrive. A open motorcar ( tuktuk ) will cost between 10-15 soles and a regular taxi will cost around twenty soles. The cab ride takes about twenty minutes to arrive at ( Downtown) Plaza de Armas where most of the hotels are located nearby. The open motorcars are safe and fun but always be mindful of your bags as they sit on the back of the motorcar.
All guests will be received at hotel La Casona ( Jr. Fitzcarrald N 147 ) at 11:30 am on day 1 of the retreat. On the final day of the retreat we will depart the property at 10:00am and arrive back in the city of Iquitos for 11:00am. The Iquitos airport is about a 20 minutes taxi ride. You do not have to stay at hotel LaCasona but we do recommend this hotel and bookings can be made through Expedia.
