New Year Aya

About This Event

We are getting overbooked for future dietas, so we decided to open one more event, that is also more relaxed in discipline, shorter and more accessible financially, for those who want to sample our work and are looking for opportunity to end this year in a different way.

The schedule is as follows :

28.12. Pick up from Iquitos, transfer to jungle camp.

29.12 First ayahuasca ceremony

30.12 Second ayahuasca ceremony.

31.12 Big bang - end of 2012 with local people of nearby town.

01.01 Departure.

Ceremonies are run by two first class Shipibo healers, Papa Felipe and maestra Angela, assisted by English speaking facilitator. Package costs 250 USD and includes transfer, 4 nights accomodation in private houses, food and two ceremonies.

This is a rustic place, designed with intent of maximum immersion in nature. If you are after luxury New Year, stay away, but if you want profound transformational experience, and a glimpse into alternative way of life, this is option for you.

This is a genuine and caring community of people with deep knowledge of medicine, man, and nature. Beautifully situated in both the jungle and in the mountains they work closely with the locals and the land. My stay was very healing, and not the least tremendously fun! I wholeheartedly recommend anyone who are looking for real transformation to check it out, and also consider a longer stay. - Dabao Lu

What's Included

  • Transfer from Iquitos airport
  • 4 nights accomodation in private houses
  • Food according to requirements of dieta
  • Two ayahuasca ceremonies

Venue Highlights

We realize our dream, living and working in the deep Amazon forest, near plants, close to nature, close to the local healers' community. We deeply believe in the power of medicine. We came to this piece of land in 2015, slowly and prudently built houses and infrastructure, so as to least interfere with the forest we found at the beginning. We designed the whole resort with the idea of deep work with plants during diets in the shipibo tradition.

Accommodations

All our guests during diets are accommodated in single-person wooden houses equipped with a mattress, hammock and mosquito net. In the resort there are two large communal houses in which live shamans and guides, and there is a shared space where workshops and ceremonies take place, kitchen available for everyone, ecological shower and shared toilet. We do not use electric generators for gasoline, we collect electricity from the solar panel. We collect water for washing and bathing from rain, we take drinking water from deep well and filter it with a specialized filter. We try to live as close to nature as possible, without disturbing its rhythm.

Directions

Our center is located in Peru, near Nauta, on a 24 hectare plot of wild Amazonian forest, 2 kilometers away from the Maranon River. It is best to fly to Iquitos in the Loreto region and then continue by car, taxi or public transport on route number 103. From Nauta you can reach the resort on foot in about 40 minutes. Usually, we pick up our clients from the airport or main square in Iquitos and provide a private transfer to our resort. So you do not have to worry about how to reach us, our carers will pick you up from a previously agreed, easy to find place.

      Best value for money you can get! Top Retreat, Top Medicine, Top Shamans A++++

    I chose this pace after reading the breakdown of the two month shamanic apprenticeship Master Plant Dieta as I loved the honesty in the words and that nothing was 'sugarcoated'. I also sent a link to the Shaman I have been working with since I landed on this path and he too gave me his blessing. I am going to be honest, at first, I had doubts. I wasn't sure about the place or the people there for a few different reasons. What I didn't see clearly at the time was that all of my uncertainties came out of my own deep rooted issues, many of them stemming from my very strong ego - it was it piping up and not my true self. After a very short while, I fell in love with every single person who helps run this retreat and those behind its creation. Every individual is there with their own super unique story and personality. The people behind this retreat are all on their own healing journeys too and this is what propelled them to do this - create a community of people who come together to heal and learn from each other. This is exactly what makes this retreat so special and amazing. I was judgemental without giving myself time and this is an issue I've had for years and thought I had overcome, just to see that I really hadn't. I fell in love with everyone's story, everyone's character, everyone's desire to help and be there for others no matter what they were going through. Every single person from the other people dieting to all the beautiful souls who work there were my teachers and I learned so much from them, but so did they. It was a balanced process in which all of us were exchanging energy, wisdom and knowledge in order to rise together collectively and within our own life’s journeys. The two months spent with Psychonota Foundation were tough, I am not going to lie. The days can really drag, the lack of food at times (always) is torture, the mosquitoes made my life hell, but every time I was in the ceremonies, I knew exactly why I did this and that the sacrifice was absolutely worth it. You will not find quality ceremonies like these and quality Shamans like these at some of the most expensive retreats out there. One thing no cost or effort has been spared on is this! The retreat is the best quality for money you will ever find for sure. In fact, as I already said, you probably won't find it even if you had much more to spend. This is one area in which no corners are cut and what more important than this? Every ceremony was pure magic. The Shamans... My God, the shamans are next level. Their passion and love for what they do shines so bright, it illuminates the Universe... The medicine is cooked on the spot and is some of the best medicine you will ever have - top quality and charged with powerful healing energy. The connection I made with the tree I was dieting was so so otherworldly, I can't even describe it to you - you have to go through it to know. I am forever grateful. I was in a great place before this retreat, however I had so many rough edges that totally got smoothed over by this experience. I have never felt more ready to work on my life's mission, but I also recognise that I have to stay dedicated to this path and that the true work really begins after the retreat. This place is also improving by the hour. Every day I was there, something new was being built or added to improve the facility. The plans the facilitators and owners have for it and shared with me are truly inspiring. These people do this from the heart and have beautiful intentions with which to help the jungle and support the spirits of the plants in this greatest time of need. They surely were called for this work and I feel super honoured to have been with them for these two months. I miss everyone however they are all in my heart forever. I would highly recommend this retreat to everyone. It's tough, but boy is it worth it...

      The Journey

    From stress and anxiety to peaceful vibration of the jungle. From fear through courage to understanding. From pain through the purge to relief. From a cold bath in a stream to a cozy hammock in the Tambo. From suffering through patience to joy. From blame through humility to compassion. From shame through acceptance to love. From oatmeal through oatmeal to oatmeal. From loneliness through the Medicine to togetherness. From scepticism through acceptance to awe. From chaos through discipline to harmony. From Santa Rosa through the Ucayali to the Amazon. From the prison of the past and the future to the freedom of here and now. Those are just a few of the Journeys you can make in Psychonauta. And there are oh-so-many more. All it takes is a little bit of faith and trust. All the rest is already there: - Guidance and Safety: Tata Mundo and Blez are great hosts. Open-minded, wise and always ready to tell you what you need to hear. Mindful about the discipline and respect for the Dieta. They know what they're a doing, you're in safe hands from dusk till dawn. - Care: Volunteers and Staff are beautiful souls who are there not only to help you, but to make you feel like at home. Whether it's food, medicine or what not - they'll be there for you. And, if it comes to that, they will hold your hand when you're scared during Ceremony and they will kick your butt when you're not respecting the Dieta. - Accommodation: Remote Tambo in the forest, a hammock, a mattress, few candles, water in the stream (and in the shower), sun and stars above you. What else do you really need? The conditions are raw but in there lies the beauty of it. It helps you keep the focus on your path. - Medicine: The Plants are chosen and brewed with utmost care, respect and knowledge. The Shipibo Shamans are honest, beautiful people who do their work with passion and attention to everyone in the Maloca. Maestro Felipe has unfinished reserves of stamina and spirit. Their Icaros will guide you on your most important journey yet to have. And when the last day of the Dieta arrives, you realise that you don't want to leave. From Nauta, with Love and Gratitude, Tomek

      No words for explication

    I am not a big lord of the words especially writing reviews but I felt it is a must now. As much as this guys did with even their existence it's amazing. They opens space for us to heal ourself and trying to lead to the right way. It is not a retreat but something more to unity and wholeness to me. These are just regular words and there is no meaning until you feel it. If I had anyone with this few words who made their decision to enjoy them than I was done something for the humanity I guess. Not an easy thing, not a weekend party but those who dare it is a life changing "experience". Thank you to you guys I hope meet you soon.

      When Ayahuasca Calls, Go to Psychonauta

    This two week experinec at Psychonauta was the most challenging and transformative experience of my life. The staff at Psychonauta are so knowledgeable, kind, and truly understand that it takes a village to learn and grow. The two week dieta was very challenging as the food being served was bland (this is expected of a plant dieta). The Shipibo were so kind and without them, this experience would have been a very dull. I would highly recommend learning Spanish before coming on this experience because they have so many profound things to say, however they don't speak much English. The grounds were serene and your own personal hut is such a peaceful sanctuary. I highly recommend this place whether it's your first time with Ayahuasca or your 100th time.

  • Bartek   October 19, 2019

      Thank you for having me

    Two weeks Shipibo diet retreat at Psychonauta was one of the hardest as well as the most beautiful and valuable experiences in my life. From the moment I stepped inside the camp, leaving my comfort zone behind I felt the transformative and purifying energy this place has to offer. Simple, completely new and a bit strange to the first time jungle visitor as myself, the traditional camp setting turned out to be the most beautiful place I ever stayed in. I am not refering only to the green and vibrant landscape around, but to the reconnection with self, nature and the feeling of freedom it gives. Natural, empty of unnecesary clutter and literally transparent hut I dieted in represents the most valuable state of mind I'd ever wish to remain at. All the theory and ideas I had about Ayahuasca as a complete newcomer to psychodelic medicine, couldn't ever come close to the real experience of it... an individual experience, that comes deeply from one's soul and is so impossibly difficult to be grasped by the rational mind. That's why it is so hard to write about it and that's why I wholeheartedly wish everyone to experience the medicinal beauty of Mother Ayahuasca first hand in the jungle. I can't be thankful enough for all the empathy I felt from Mundo, Sylwia, Patrycja, Remik and Ronny who looked after the group during our dietas. Mundo is a beautiful soul, which really comes through during ceremonies. It was mainly thanks to his songs I felt at peace and focussed, which helped me opening up to medicinal force of Icaro songs delivered by the shamans Mundo works with - Maestro Felipe, Maestro Felipe Segundo and Maestra Angela. Again, words cannot describe the beauty of these people and their craft. Each night was like meeting your closest friends and family, sitting around a campfire, singing songs together and sharing the joy of the moment. Thank you for having me.

      Life changing....

    Support is key in this process. There is no lack of love and desire to set you up for success. The environment holds you like your mother’s womb. At times my linear comprehension of life was shut down and I began to see behind the veil into non linear, non ego thinking. Challenging? It was the hardest experience of my life. Rewarding? Beyond a numerical dollar amount. This is the highest form of technology on the planet administered by the most capable shamans and facilitators in the world. Words cannot convey how deep the process was for me and will be for you. Come prepared to know nothing and absorb everything. This is not recreational but the awesomeness of the experience is profound to say the least. Landing on the moon wasn’t recreational either but I’m sure Armstrong smiles every time he remembers the process. Trust yourself. Trust this place. Trust the moment. All thoughts that arise have meaning. Spend time with yourself. If you choose to go here, consider yourself one of the richest and luckiest people on the planet. Go be apart of human history. GO

      Exquisite experience

    The Dieta retreat I was in, just at the beginning of the month, was one of the hardest things I've done in my life (and I am pretty much accustomed to hard things). In the middle of the jungle, going back almost to the origins of civilisation, working with the Amazonian master-plants, I was conducted by forces stronger than me (and anybody else, for that matter) - by nature itself, in all her untamed power and beauty - to discover my real limits and deep fears, as well as my inner gifts and opportunities of joy.  It was a profound and, for me, painful process that opened another chapter of my life, one that I now welcome wholeheartedly. Therefore I thank the beautiful souls who made this possible: Tata Mundo and his team of magnificent shamans. I cannot be more grateful. Mihaela

    Tomas is an inborn Shaman. His eyes are bright and medicine strong. Very highly recommend to work with him if there is an opportunity, and you feel an internal call.

      Aya and plant diet

    A place to really dig deep. I can recommend psychonauta to those who are looking for many forms of healing and wish to do it right. No luxury or distractions, just you and the plants for most part of the retreat. I felt like Blez & co had the right intentions running the retreat, they want to help people grow. Very kind people. And last but not least, the curanderos of the shipibo tribe... amazing. They knew exactly what plant I needed to diet and for that I am so gratefull. It helped my overcome so much of my anxieties and fears. The beautiful and intense aya ceremonies, the vivid dreams caused by the Chiric Sanango, the post ceremonie 'hallucinations', the curanderos and the icaros they so powerfully sing, the the time in isolation, the kind people, the jungle! It has been an out-of-this-world experience ( but then again... its not ;) ) My time spent at psychonauta and my travels after that have changed me. Even though mother ayahuasca did not show me what I wanted to see, I had a specific intent, I did get exactly what I needed from her. The way I see life and how I stand in it .... I feel like I have broken free Muchas gracias a todos <3 Glenn

  • Kevin Stoots   July 26, 2019

      An amazing environment and potent experience.

    I participated in the 12-day retreat with 4 ceremonies. It was profound beyond what I could have predicted. It's still hard to write about what I've discovered - I'm still making sense of it. Some basic details: The jungle setting is incredibly vibrant. Only mosquito screens separate you from the forest and its creatures. The sounds, the smells, the feel of the earth and mud under your feet, the thick, moist air -- the world is so alive here, and being in such close contact with it was really special. I loved having my own little hut where I couldn't see another human. It allowed me to slow down, meditate, stretch, journal, and process. The ceremonies were also very potent. The medicine was strong, the shamanic singers helped to move the energy in the room, and Mundo helped to set reverent and respectful ground rules. The main thing that was lacking, in my opinion, was support and guidance to integrate and process the experience. This is really a "you're on your own" sort of retreat. There's a beauty in that as well - following your own path - BUT I think it's really hard to do it all alone. The shamans are not therapists or life coaches - they sing and they feel energy, but they are not equipped to scaffold a client's personal development. Mundo offered a bit of support, but he's busy running the whole operation and keeping the termites at bay. I would strongly recommend to have a qualified, dedicated person on staff who would be available for therapeutic chats and guidance. I would pay for that.

  • Becca Surman   July 23, 2019

      First Dieta

    Psychonauta foundation is exactly what I was looking for in my first dieta/plant medicine experience. Throughout the two weeks I felt safe and secure to dive into my intentions and reasons for being there. I loved my casita and the connection to nature. Psychonauta foundation is authentic and successful in making plant medicine accessible to people regardless of financial means. I would come back here again and again, I have lots of gratitude and love for this place, Mundo who runs it, the volunteers, the powerful shamans who helped guide me, and the people the foundation attracts.

  • Vincent Kaschner   July 20, 2019

      Beautiful, strange, funky place...

    And truly great and caring people! One can sense their connection with the medicine and the jungle. What I appreciate most is, how well balanced and grounded everything is. The dieta was not always easy, it could be tough and dead serious, but at the same time it was such a joyful experience there... No cosmic talk, no bs, but honest work with a good sense of down to earth humor when needed. Now, a few weeks later, I feel like reborn, reset, and enjoy life again. I strongly feel that the medicine is still with me and growing, almost like having a baby that you're responsible for and have to take care of, and that's what I do. Dziękuję y muchas gracias!

      Great experience

    I went for jungle part of retreat organised by Psychonauta Foundation back in April 2019. Whole retreat was very well organised from the beginning. When we meet Blez ( one of the organisers) in Iquitos and traveled to Psychonauta base in jungle, to the very end when we left rest of the group back in Iquitos after spending 9 days in Psychonauta jungle base. I really like that we actually lived in the jungle, eat very simple food, washed and drank rainwater, prepared ayahuasca and took part in real jungle live. I enjoyed meeting our group and working with all those lovely people. I took part in 3 ayahuasca ceremonies with Shipibo shamans which where also very well organised. We spend time to integrate our experiences together with whole group which I also enjoyed a lot. There was also boat trip on Amazonian rivers. This experience had great positive influence on me. Everything was great and I wouldn’t change anything about it. If you want to experience Amazonian jungle live Psychonauta Foundation is the place to go

      Psychonauta - Incredible experiences in the heart of Amazon and Peruvian Andes

    I have had a pleasure to do 2 week-long shamanic dieta, a retreat and donation ayahuasca ceremony with Psychonauta. First experience was in Peruvian jungle, far away for civilization with Shipibo shamans, basic organic foods and camp surrounded by extraordinary nature one connects with while contemplating on his intentions. Second retreat was a mixture of before mentioned Amazon camp and the most scenic parts of Andes one can ever imagine. During initial part of this retreat we worked with Ayahuasca and during latter, mountain section when we had a trek, San Pedro was our teacher. All the events I have participated at were prepared and delivered professionally. I felt perfectly safe to embark on my internal journey with Psychonauta. Shamans and facilitators (Blez, Mundo) have tons of experience and their compassionate approach is incredibly valuable. If you are looking for a retreat or a ceremony (they organise them in Pisac) look no further.

  • Cawi Buie   June 04, 2019

      Beautiful Dieta

    One of the most profound experiences I’ve ever had. I’m still having dreams and feeling positions of power. The facilitator Mr. Mundo did a wonderful job preparing and keeping us grounded for what was to come. His deep insight and experience were very much a part of my ceremony. His advise I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I appreciate that he keeps this experience affordable for people. The shaman to people on the dieta is the highest ratio I’ve ever heard of for a ceremony that was not private. On a more personal note, I wish I could share my healing with all of you... Or you could experience it for yourself. -Love

    I had a Powerful Dieta. I sincerely recommend this Retreat to all my family and friends.The Shipibo Shamans; Felipe, Felipe Jr. and Maestra Angela were Outstanding !!! I can still hear their divine spiritual Icaros. Mundo's Icaros were out of this World, you are a very talented man my friend. I started my journey with kambo then, a two-week transformation process happening in isolation, a kind of shamanic vipassana that enables contact with spirits of healing plants. My Ayahuasca sessions were also very Powerful, I am still ONE with every living things out there. You have to experience it yourself to fully Innerstand this gift from the Universe. Muchas gracias both Felipe's for healing my stomach, you worked so hard to help me, I am very grateful for everything. Thank you very much Tata Mundo for your hospitality.!!!

      Life changing experience

    I went to Nauta for two weeks to do the masterplant dieta and ayahuasca ceremonies and i have to say that not only the experience i made during the ceremonies, but also living in isolation in the jungle under the master plant and special dieta, really did open up my heart to many things and changed my life throug that. It challenged me in ways i didn´t imagine, at times physically and mentaly very strong, at others very subtle. it opened up a new perspective for me. It is one thing to be open and educated about things and to (think to) "know" what to do to live a fulfilled live; It is another thing to feel something so strong, something that we all had and most lost at one point in our lives. It was amazing to remember, and that is something that stuck very strongly with me (Also a comment of Mundo that made me reflect on that topic alot :-) , that there is thinks that can´t be put in words or thoughts, but can only be felt with the heart. The People working there, the Shamans and the whole atmosphere of the place is amazing You could tell that the work that these people are doing comes from a place of love. helping other people; Not for making money or putting up a show. Just give it a try if you feel like its the right thing for you. im sure you wont regret it:-)

      Great mind with a big heart

    Tomasz is one of the people that discovered Psychonauta by accident and then... decided to stay. Even though he was the least intrusive host, it would be difficult to imagine this place without him. He combines great knowledge of plants and human beings with an extraordinary ability to listen. A great mind, with a big heart, working in tandem with Blez, they both turned my stay in Nauta into one of the most beatiful memories of my life

  • Linoy Sana Raichman   February 19, 2019

      Beautiful experience

    I was in the jungle with Psychonauta Foundation retreat of master plant diet and it was amazing experience. Strong, sometimes difficult but overall very healing journey. I was drinking bobinsana, and had beautiful transmission with the plants. The ayahuasca ceremonies were very strong, and the shamans are amazing. I loved the jungle and this medicine.

  • Jo Fox   February 15, 2019

      'An oasis of calm'

    Being in Tomas''s presence is like being in oasis of calm. He is an amazing listener and he was a great support to me during the whole retreat. I loved times spent together in the kitchen and space he created for me where I could share my experiences after Ayahuasca ceremonies, and Tomas would ask the right questions to guide me through this process of integration and translating it so I could make a better sense of everything I experienced. He is very intuitive, gentle, loving soul with lots of joy to share and gratitude to spread. Highly recommending working with Tomas if you are looking for someone authentic, loving and non- judgemental!

  • Julian Loive   February 15, 2019

      Life changing experience

    As a first timer who never been to the jungle and never being part of a dieta like this, I was a bit nervous before arriving to the retreat. I took part in the two week program and it is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I felt completely safe with the people who took care of me. Tata Mundo is a good guy who it felt great to talk with during the dieta and after the ceremonies. He and the other guys as well as the shamans truly knows what they are doing and they really want the best for you. This place is the real deal without any luxury, just you and the jungle. The food is simple, same with the huts. It’s all you need, no more or less. Would love to come back one day.

  • Jennifer Hou   February 11, 2019

      Very grateful for such a valuable experience

    The retreat center was a perfect place for me to work on my intentions. Although very basic and isolated, this is a great place to reconnect with nature and yourself. The great staff and shipibo shamans make you feel welcome and cared about. Every participant has a private tambo, which I liked a lot. The food according to the plant dieta can be quite basic, but that’s part of the process, and it is always prepared carefully and with love. For me, it was just the right environment for pursuing my intentions, and I received everything I wanted and so much more! Concerning the facilities: If you need more comfort like a private bathroom, this place isn’t for you. If you want to work on yourself and find your place on this planet, this is exactly where you need to be. So thank you so much, your work is truly appreciated :)

      In the heart of Ayahuasca's home

    It may not be top nodge, when it comes to comfort or luxury, or the general ideas that are usually connected with those two words, but it was definitely worth more than my time. I spend a month on one of PsychoNauta's retreats, with Masterplant dieta, cooking of Ayahuasca, and some life transforming and wonderful ceremonies. I really enjoyed to be among like minded people in the community, and to meet real, down to earth Shipibo shamans, and to experience the visionary power of their icaros. The medicine itself was cooked with great respect for traditions, and the crew were awesome. I am strongly considering coming back for another masterplant dieta, and I wish I could participate in the shamanic song workshop they are offering in February. But I still have a lot of integration work to do, from the month I spend with PsychoNauta in November last year. I can't believe it has been two months already. It was really big for me, and the changes I had to make upon my return to Denmark was extraordinary and are still ongoing. Thanks to the medicine, and to the fascillitators. Thank you all, for your contribution to what's going on in my life right now. I changed my name back to my original birthname, got a new passport, moved to another part of the country, and I've got a new job, which I like better than the old one. And this was only some of the things I realized during the ceremonies with PsychoNauta that I had to do. There's still a long way to go. I honestly received so much. But maybe in a year or two, when I have learned a bit more spanish, I'll come back and see you.

      Psychonauta - one of the rarest gems on the retreats' map

    At the times of widespread consumerism in spiritual disguise, I see Psychonauta as one of the rarest gems, so hard to find. I've attended 2 retreats they facilitated in Peruvian jungle, one in 2015 and the other in 2017. Both were life changing journeys. We were guided by Tata Mundo and his wonderful partner through the less obvious paths, the hidden places, the local curanderos harder to find and meet. Deep in the jungle, by all means far away from the commercial, easy accessible retreat centers. Our habits and views were put to a sincere test more than once. And yet we all felt guided, respected, safe. What was ignited there and then, still lightens my path up. The Psychonauta crew beautifully builds the bridges between the local tribes and us, the comers. On the way, you may learn plenty of things from them. From respecting the World to living from the heart and with courage. Thank you, Psychonauta! <3

      Amazing transformation in the Amazon forest.

    Welcome brothers and sisters. I want to share with you my wonderful experience that I experienced during my stay in the Amazon jungle, which opened my eyes to reality and the truth that surrounds us, all due to the Psychonauta, organizer Blez and shamans cooperating during my diet. My ideologies, views, superstitions and current thinking were changed. I experienced the power of shamanic rituals and magic on my own skin, I became a different human being. All my problems and health problems were erased in just two weeks, I have been struggling with them for years. So I recommend everyone to experience unforgettable moments in this place where there is complete peace and quiet, like the psychonauta medical base. I greet with all due respect all who have helped me solve my problems, may God bless you. Witajcie bracia i siostry. Chce się podzielić z Wami moim cudownym doświadczeniem jakiego doznałem podczas pobytu w dżungli amazońskiej, która otworzyła mi oczy na rzeczywistość i prawdę jaka nas otacza, a wszystko to za sprawa Psychonauta, organizatora Błażeja, jaki i szamanów współpracujących podczas mojej diety. Moje ideologie poglądy przesądy i dotychczasowe myślenie legło w gruzach. Doświadczyłem na własnej skórze mocy szamańskich rytuałów i magii, którą mnie z miłością obdarzyli po której stałem się innym człowiekiem Wszystkie moje problemy i dolegliwości zdrowotne zostały wymazane w zaledwie dwa tygodnie, a z którymi borykałem się od lat. Polecam wiec każdemu by mógł przeżyć niezapomniane chwile w tym oto gronie i miejscu gdzie jest pełna cisza i spokój, jak baza medyczna Psychonauta Pozdrawiam z całym szacunkiem wszystkich którzy pomogli rozwiązać mi me problemy niech Bóg Was błogosławi.

      Don’t be afraid, go all the way.

    Sometimes we need to escape our comfort zone to discover that we can be truly free and alive! Freedom is a state of no fear. And fear is our biggest enemy, nothing else in the world holds us down and limits us more than this. The solitary of the woods, far away from our daily demons, can liberate us and show us our true face. For me this was a life changing time. Lovely hosts from the Shipibo tribe and Mundo, who is a bridge between the Amazonian wisdom and the western civilization made it happen. Place and people I will always keep in my heart. Nights and days I will never forget. Genuinely and pristine surroundings you can’t find anywhere else. I’m coming back soon!

      Exceptional experience

    Some experiences are good and some are exceptional. Mundo is the best guide I know and it is such a privilege to be spending time with him. He not only leads you through the spiritual journey but also through the mind/body transformation. He knows exactly what you need and will give you no more and no less. Bringing in not only culture from Peru but also all the influences from the vast travels as well as mixing in Slavic roots inspirations.

      Deep transformation

    One of the places I'll always have in my heart, after many ceremonies in Europe here I'll "get" what cleanse and purga means. Loving and humble group of Shamans allowed me to face and understand what "letting go" means. Absolutely recommended 2 weeks dieta in which one can truly work on whatever is stored deep down of soul/mind. Big Thanks to Mundo&Blez for organising this so transformative for me experience.

      I want to come back to you ...

    Amazonia była moim młodzieńczym jeszcze marzeniem o podróży w dziewicze, nieprzebyte lasy dżungli w dorzeczu potężnych rzek: Amazonki, Ukajali i Maranion. Marzeniem o puszczy zamieszkałej przez Indian, żyjącej w niej w zgodzie z naturą i szacunkiem dla praw przyrody. Dzięki ofercie Psychonauta Tavel w 2017 roku trafiłem wreszcie do zielonych „płuc ziemi”. Ta oferta to mieszkanie w osadzie zbudowanej przez Shipibo, gdzie można poznać życie w prawdziwej symbiozie z przyrodą. Miejsce pobytu w chatach pokrytych liśćmi palmowymi i osłoniętych moskitierami oczarowało mnie totalnie. Osada Światka jest położona na wzgórzu, ze strumieniem poniżej, otoczona ścianą drzew i krzewów tak pięknych, że trudno sobie wyobrazić. W nocy dżungla żyje swoim rytmem, jedną, wielką symfonią różnorodnych dźwięków. Dźwięków kojących duszę, dźwięków prawdziwego, naturalnego życia. Przez cały pobyt czułem się częścią tego wielkiego organizmu. Dzięki Psychonauta Travel miałem okazję zobaczyć oraz poznać rośliny, zwierzętami, ludzi jakże innych od naszego europejskiego świata. Pływaliśmy łodzią po potężnych rzekach Ukajali i Maranion oglądając delfiny słodkowodne. Wędrowaliśmy wydeptanymi przez indian ścieżkami, pokonując mokradła, strumienie, wzgórza i doliny. Spaliśmy w parku narodowym Contamana, podziwiając 50 metrowy wodospad i gorące źródła. Mieszkaliśmy dwa dni w cudownej oazie Huacachina na pustyni, jeżdżąc crossoverami i deskami snowbordowymi z wysokich wydm. Poznaliśmy prawdziwe, niereżyserowane życie Shipibo oraz Peruwiańczyków w osadach, miastach i na targowiskach. Jedliśmy warzywa, owoce i ryby prosto z puszczy, przygotowywane przez tubylców na ich sposób. Leczyłem ciało i duszę według diety i medycyny przygotowanej przez szamanów Shipibo. Urok Amazonii i Peru, doskonała organizacja i program Psychonauta Travel zachęcił mnie do ponownego wyjazdu w 2018 roku. Tym razem po medycynie w osadzie Światka udaliśmy się w Andy. Mieszkaliśmy u gościnnego Inki Santiago. Stąd udawaliśmy się na wysokogórskie wyprawy podziwiając dawne warownie Inków wzdłuż Sacred Valley. Spaliśmy w namiotach pod przełęczami, kąpaliśmy się w lodowatym jeziorze i pod wodospadem, zwiedzaliśmy architektoniczne cuda Machu Pichu, Cusco, Pisac. Była to moja druga niesamowita i magiczna podróż dzięki Psychonauta Tavel. Dzisiaj mogę powiedzieć, że były to wyprawy mojego życia.

      Psychonauta

    Psychonauta's headquarter in the Amazon is a place run by a group of an amazing people who are also my friends. I've visited the place this year for two weeks part diet and to shoot a small documentary there. I had a chance to participate in the ceremonies held by three local curanderos. The ceremonies were safe with an amazing singing and a very special atmosphere, each time different with different rhythm, intentions and length with a freshly cooked brew. Raw but extremely picturesque place where I couldn't stop photograph and record sounds of the jungle. During the stay no matter how difficult it was I felt taken care of and fed with a very good simple food. The stay was so intense that I almost didn't have a chance to leave the place during the two weeks stay and I didn't really wanted. I want to go back there for a full diet next time! I know Mundo for a long time, he was our guide and a bridge between us and shipibo healers during the ceremonies. His presence gives the experience an extra kick, he has a great knowledge and attitude that opens you up.

      Highly recommended!

    It's authentic, pure and healing. The whole crew is exprienced in working with plants and you can feel it from the first question you asked. The shamans can be trusted, they are doing a great work there. I had the chance to participate in private ceremony (only me, shaman and facilitator) which was the most powerfull one I've ever had. I did dieta despite I was there only one week. It was the best decision I could make! I highly recommend Psychonauta if you're looking for a raw but real experience.

      Healing centre the world doesn't deserve

    I just came back from 6 days of ceremonies in Psychonauta. The venue is perfect to get detached from the pollution of the city with no distraction, your work with yourself starts even before you meet the plants or healers. Blez and Swiatek, my hosts, are very experienced in work with the plants, now not only powerful male and female healers (shamans) but understand the jungle. If you come with an open heart and are actively looking for help, you have a good chance of finding it here!

  • Tania Skryhanava   October 31, 2018

      Pure.

    The place where I found and lost myself, so intensive two weeks diet was. Like a jungle weather the weather of my being was changing several times a day: cloudy, shiny, rainy, stormy. But if you don't want to go out - just stay at home, rain is beautiful when you watch it from the window. How important it is to have this home, the point of steadiness inside.. Who knows how long it will take to build my home. But no masterpiece will appear without taking a drawing tool in you hand:) I've just touched an empty sheet of paper and don't even know where the line will go, but I'm full of a deep gratitude to Psychonauta for giving me this unique chance, this possibility. I'm grateful to facilitators and shamans for their presence and everyday support, for being next to me in this journey. The part of me has stayed there in a jungle, with these people. I wish you, dear Psychonauta growing up not to loose the puriness of your idea and to save a human touch I felt during my short stay.

      Divine work

    Thank you for organising and leading that journey to ourselves. That was a intensive process of transformation and self discovery that I could pass only with your help and the help of the great crew that you succeed to collect around you. Your wide heart and pure intention will continue with me like a fire in a field. With your guidance and the help of the Sacred medicines combined with the holy places you choose I successfully overcome my distractive paterns and transfom them to bless and benefit to me and all around me. I only on my way home but passing same places in a new form make me happy and satisfied. Still difficult to believe that only 2 weeks passed since we meet, I already miss you brother and imagine our next meeting. GOD bless you and your family, keep doing your divine work, I will push the waves of transformation and healing forward. May our paths will cross again soon.

      Podróż życia

    Z Psychonauta przeżyłam wspaniałe i niezapomniane chwile. Wiele wyniosłam i nauczyłam się chociaż czasami było ciężko. To zmienia człowieka i otwiera go na niesamowity świat. Poznałam wielu cudownych ludzi i szamanów którzy robią wszystko abyśmy czuli się jak najlepiej. Polecam to miejsce.

      The real deal

    After having experiences in two other, more western oriented centers (which were great), this camp found me in the perfect time to go deep into a two and a half month process in which I went through two master plant dietas (chiric sanango and chuchuhuasi) and an integration period, I can say that the service psyconauta is providing is for the ones who are looking to go deep in to their psychic and their soul. Words cannot express the journey I had with this beautiful community of soul searchers and strong shipibo maestros. With a more traditional approach, I was able to form a deeper relationship with the master plants and the benefits are beyond words. If you are ready to face yourself and release old thought patterns that do not serve you anymore, this is where I’d say you should go to. If it sounds right for you, trust your guts and intuition and book a flight. Blessings 🌈❤️🦋

      satiating time

    Od połowy września 2018 do połowy października korzystałem z opieki i gościnności Psychonauty. Jeżeli miałbym ten okres podsumować dwoma słowami, to byłyby to słowa: „czas sycący”. Okres, w którym każda chwila napełniała mnie nowymi wartościami, przekazami, odkryciami. W dżungli uczestniczyłem w 4 ceremoniach Ayauaski, łaziłem po lesie, pływałem w Amazonce. Czas beztroski, a jednocześnie czas dalekiej podróży do źródeł moich strachów czy bólu. Byłem z nimi na treku po przełęczach Andów, pluskałem się w gorących źródłach, godzinami mknąłem w dół na rowerze. Chociaż pogoda nas nie pieściła uważam, że zostałem hojnie obdarowany w kolejne spostrzeżenia, odkrycia, poznawanie siebie. Każda chwila była piękna. Jestem głęboko wdzięczny Psychonaucie za tę podróż. A Ty Przyjacielu, jeżeli myślisz o wyprawie do Peru, pomyśl na poważnie o skorzystaniu z wiedzy, umiejętności a także „lekkości bycia” Pschonauty. Warto. I na pewno na to zasługujesz. Paweł Krzemiński From mid-September 2018 to mid-October, I used the care and hospitality of Psychonauta. I can summarized this period in two words: " satiating time". A period in which every moment filled me with new values, messages, discoveries. In the jungle I participated in 4 Ayauaska ceremonies, I was walking in the woods, I was swimming in the Amazon. Carefree time, and at the same time, the time of a long journey to the source of my fears or pain. With Psychonauta I was on a trek on the Andes passes, I was splashing in hot springs, I was riding down the bike for hours. Although the weather was hard, I think I was generously given away to new observations, discoveries, getting to know myself. Every moment was beautiful. I’am deeply grateful to Psychonauta for this trip. And you, my friend, if you think about going to Peru, think seriously about using the knowledge, skills and "lightness of being" of the Pschonauta. You deserve it. Paweł Krzemiński

      Shipibo Master Plant Dieta

    Last year in May I participated in 11day Shipibo Master Plant Dieta at Psychonauta. Now I know that was the best investment in my life, so far. I spent 11 days in isolation at simple but beautiful hut inside the jungle. I had 5 Ayahuasca ceremonies and dieted master plant Ajo Sacha. Two facilitators were bringing me diet food every day and supporting with presence and translation during the ceremonies. Ceremonies were led by two Shipibo shamans (man and woman) who had more than 30 years of experience. Every ceremony I went deep, meeting with my traumas, suppresed emotions, forgotten memories. To me whole 11 day dieta was like one ceremony. I also learned a lot from the jungle itself - how to be in the moment, how to live simple life, aprreciate what's already here and now and much, much more. Facilitatators working there as well as shamans are very professional. I would even use the word - specialists. They are very connected. I had all I needed. Care, translation, food, real powerfully shamans. I got picked up from the airport. I felt very safe all the time. In the same time I didn't get any unnecessary stuff which is so common these days. The facilitators didn't play guru's. They really knew what they were doing keeping everything as simple as needed. Nobody tried to install his philosophy or point of view when - just after the dieta - we had one day of integration time. The center itself is located in beautiful part of the jungle close to the village named Nauta, by the river Marañon. It's around 15-20min walk from the town. The dieta houses as well as ceremonial building are beautiful, made from local wooden and plant materials by local people. The center supports locals, making friends with villagers giving them jobs, buying from them. There's very nice kitchen, rain water tanks, filtered water, shower, solar charger. Beautiful place! I'll be back! Highly recommend!

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl
