About This Event

In Lupuna Ayahasca Center we focus on healing - spiritual healing that leads to physical healing. You may believe there is no help for you, you have lost all your hope and belief - you have suffered from anxiety, depression, addictions, PTSD and tried everything out there. And you came across ayahuasca but what if it doesn't help and you just spend money and (contact info blocked) fact is, we see people with these conditions and other conditions healed every day through ayahuasca ceremonies. Have faith there is always a solution. 

Our 3 powerful Shamans (Jauriman, Nilton, Kev from Australia) make sure you get what you need to have a happy life you deserve. Then it is up to you, if you allow the change in your life :)

We are unique in having the max number of ceremonies in minimum days, 3 shamans per max. of 10 participants, each of you stays in a spacious single wooden cabin with its own toilet, shower, wash basin. This is very rare, usually you have to share a room and bathroom with more people, there would be 20 plus people in the ceremony. We have a different approach to healing. If you have experience with ayahuasca, you know the advantage of not sharing your accommodation and bathroom.

Master Shamans

Each ceremony is performed by two Maestros: Nilton Torres Bardales and Jauriman García Torres who has been doing this for over 20 years, countless ceremonies, these two shamans along with Kev are unstoppable. They cook ayahuasca themselves on site to ensure its potency.

San Pedro, Kambo, Sanango diets

If you wish in each retreat San Pedro (all day), Kambo (20 minutes) is included. In a 12 day retreat you can also do Sanango diets and a few ayahuasca ceremonies.


Every day after the ceremony we talk about your experience in an informal friendly way, one on one or in a group, with shamans and therapist Katerina. After the retreat we keep in touch.

In longer retreats you can do shorter retreats as long as beginning or end matches the longer retreat date.

Venue Highlights

Ayahuasca Lupuna Retreat is located right in the jungle to give the real jungle experience, however, it's designed to be safe - walkways everywhere so you don't need to worry where you step. You can see blue morphos flying around. It's only 30 minutes from Iquitos by boat and then beautiful new road to the retreat. We keep working on the retreat, improving things, we just love what we are doing and you can feel it when you come and see us. When you do ayahuasca, you may experience purging effects. That's why, unlike most retreats, we have single cabins with flushing toilets and showers. Believe us, you don't want to share accommodation with other people while doing ayahuasca or run to the shower located far away. Our shamans prepare ayahuasca and make sure the ceremony is safe and just right for you, the group is max. 10 people so the retreat is more personal. The ceremonial house is very large, one of the largest actually, that gives you a lot of space around so you are not disturbed by other people during the ceremony as is the case in most retreats.


Private cabins for 1 person, 2 people per request. We are unique besides powerful ceremonies with private accommodation, each person has their own cabin, there is no sharing toilet or showers or rooms with other people.
Each cabin has a large double bed, mosquito net, hammock, shower, flushing toilet, veranda.
Towels are not provided, personal care products are not provided.


Ayahuasca diet is specail - no salt, no sugar, no caffein, only fruits, vegetables, rice, eggs, chicken, fish, water.


From Iquitos airport (Lima to Iquitos, 1.5 hours) you take a mototaxi (about 15 soles) to your hotel in Iquitos and we will pick you up and take to our center on the day of the start of the retreat, about 10 am.

      True loving souls

    I have worked as a police officer for almost 15 years. During that time I was clinically diagnosed with chronic PTSD. I was placed in treatment programs and even placed on medication (Cymbalta) which destroyed my mind and body. After getting virtually no results from “western” treatment I was very desperate and eventually found myself traveling to Peru to try Ayahuasca. I can tell you that NOTHING even comes close to the progress I made with Ayahuasca. It set me on a true path to acceptance, forgiveness, happinesses and love. I’ve never felt so welcomed and safe until I arrived at Lupuna. Kay and Kev are true loving souls that did everything to make my stay effective and comfortable. Their property alone is therapeutic. I never once worried about safety. The shamans and helpers were some of the nicest people I’ve met. Through my ceremonies I was able to get to the root of my anger. I was able to forgive those that hurt me and I was able to forgive myself. I experienced profound ceremonies which launched me forward in life. I’m now able to strengthen my relationships with family and friends. I’m able to sleep at night and for the first time in 10 years..... did myself of nightmares. I can accept life challenges much more easily and found my old passions/hobbies. I spent many days having wonderful conversations with Kay, Kev and other guests. I truly believe that the setting at Lupuna is PERFECT!!! I felt a sense of calm as soon as I settled in. There were absolutely no issues getting to Lupuna and I’m very grateful I made the journey to Iquitos. Since I’ve returned home I noticed I felt lighter, happier and motivated. Life still has its challenges but I know I have amazing tools to deal with those challenges. I’ve also witnessed amazing results from others who were attending ceremonies at Lupuna. I want to thank Kat, Kev and their beautiful daughter Sara (who has the most beautiful smile) for all they did. Without them I would still be lost......Still struggling. You guys are such wonderful people and again I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wish you success as I know you can truly help people regain their lives. Thank you Lupuna for everything!!!!!

      Cocaine addiction was healed thanks to Lupuna Center

    I had a serious problem with cocaine addiction that I wasn’t able to solve myself. I urgently needed help and the other rehabilitation facilities had failed me. I found myself resorting back to this solution time and time again until I came across ayahuasca and Lupuna Center who were able to remove the reason for my addiction and allow me to move forward with a clean life style and a better understanding of life. Since my experience with ayahuasca at Lupuna I have been able to negotiate differently the things that had led me to addiction. I saw them for what they were on an energetic level. I understood also what the shamans’ role was and I can’t thank enough to the team at Lupuna. I can say that my life was saved, my family was saved, I reconnected with my children and that is the most important for me now. I understand now the important things in life while before I was concerned with money, women, party life style which took a toll on who I was. Thank you Lupuna!

      I have no longer disgestion problems, recommend highly

    Since the passing of my brother I’ve had to deal with severe loss in my life which left me in a downwards spiral of horrible emotion, and struggle. My health deteriorated, my family deteriorated, I didn’t know how to move past, ayahuasca found me and I chose Lupuna Center after we had a phone call and I trusted them. It is hard for me as I am blind, I needed special attention and help throughout the process. Everything was perfect, my digestion was fixed, I was able to reconnect and understand my brother’s passing. I see now that he is happy and it helps me move on in my life. There is no more pain and suffering. Just love and understanding. I’m planning to go back to receive more as I see the powerful effects that ayahuasca can bring. I can’t thank the team enough at Lupuna Center. They are very loving and accommodating people. And I see they are sent by God to make life better.

      Powerful natural healing for me

    I don’t travel and I don’t trust people much so going to the jungle initially was difficult for me but I had strong calling to do this as all my other options had been expended. The beginning of the process was a shock for me but the team at Lupuna explained and helped me proceed as it was very difficult. The weight I was carrying with me was lifted, I am happy I did it, I thought it would never be possible. I understood the nature and its healing power and it seems to me that the jungle environment makes ayahuasca experience stronger. Now I trust ayahuasca, the shamans, the team. Thank you guys.

      Highly recommended, I will be going back

    All the cliche's I have heard are completely true. 1."It's like 10-15 years of therapy in one night". 2."Ayahuasca is more like a cheat" 3."It's like jumping the line at the grocery store" (I made that one up) All I felt is love from every single person at the retreat and I felt extremely safe. At the end of my week at Lupuna, I was questioning if the cost of my entire trip (flights, hotels, lupuna) was worth it. First off this retreat is extremely well priced, but I was still questioning if the entire thing was worth it. I can say being 1.5months removed from my trip, it absolutely was. The small changes that happened every day after and the small changes that continue to happen to me have made my life much better. I am a numbers person, the week after I would guess my anxiety was down to about 20-30% of what I had prior. Now being a couple months later, I am guessing my anxiety is about 50% of what it used to be. So much better considering how much anxiety I had prior. I am so much more present. I walk slower, I reflect more and life's problems aren't so big anymore. Highly recommended. I will be going back. Thanks so much.

      You can trust Lupuna Center

    I paid for an 11 day retreat and then lost my job which made it impossible for me to attend. I asked Lupuna to refund the money and they did it immediately with no problems. I appreciate this kind of approach and when I can I will go there for a retreat. Thank you.

      Solution to my depression, wow

    I have suffered from severe mental disorders (anxiety, severed depression and suicidal thoughts) until ayahuasca called me - it called me to Lupuna Center where I participated in several ayahuasca ceremonies with 3 amazing shamans Nilton, Jauriman and Kevin. At first I thought treatment for my condition was impossible but I had no other options and gave it a try. The process was very tough but the results I have have given me freedom from my mental state. I am released, it feels like new life open for me. I am forever grateful to Lupuna and the team there. They are genuinely caring people who really have the ambition to help others. You will not be disappointed.

      The best of 3 centers I have visited so far

    I attended Lupuna Center for 4 ceremonies in March 2019. I was very impressed with warm welcome and the hosts Kat & Kev were very understanding towards my needs. Before, I attended 2 different centers and had not so good experience with too many people in the ceremony and I had to share a room with other people but wasn’t told in advance. The accommodation in Lupuna was very comfortable, I had a hut for myself with a bathroom, which exceeded my expectations. The ceremonies were more than I expected, extremely powerful, they gave me good insight to my life. I had a lot of purging but it was worth it. I am forever grateful. If I need to do more aya I will definitely go back to Lupuna.

      Lupuna helped me to find my path

    Ayahuasca, along with qhht sessions with Kat, helped me to find my path. They helped me to realize what fulfills me the most, and in what direction I want to go in life. I am very grateful to them for that. Also to Kev and Master Julio for everything they have done for me. They are all amazing people full of love. I recommend visiting Lupuna Center to everyone.

      Knowledge and healing

    From the start of my process of looking into different retreat. Kat and Kev were very helpful. Making my decision easier to take the trip out to Iquito peru. They made me aware of everything I need to do to prepare for my Journey as well as what I was going to expect. Everyone at the retreat was helpful and kind. If you are in search for knowledge and healing, then I would recommend Lupuna Retreat because they care about you in a soul level. During ceremony and after I felt safe. I understand that the word Jungle is scary. But really there is nothing to fear. Just remember the reason you want to embark on this journey and let your heart guide you to the decision. I am forever graceful. Thank you Ayahuasca Lupuna Retreat. Maria M.

      Never felt so good

    I stayed at the Lupuna Ayahuasca Center in March 2019 for healing with the pain in my arthritic joints. I could not walk without a stick. After the first ceremony I discarded my stick. A week later I was running up the 150 steps at Macchu Picchu and I felt SO good! Do yourself a favour and go to this retreat. The individual cabins with flushing toilets and showers in the Amazon jungle are second to none. Really well looked after and cared for!

      Results of my healing were profound

    I attended in March 2019 for healing at this center. I was amazed by the outcome. I can highly recommend this Lupuna Ayahuasca Center. Staff are most caring, There are individual cabins with ensuite showers and flushing toilet in the beautiful Amazon rainforest Peru. The staff really looked after me. This center is registered and professional, with very high standards of care and success with healing. They use the traditional medicine with Master Shamans to guide you. Every ceremony is tailored to your individual need. The best.
