About The Teacher

Now in her early seventies, Maestra Ynes has been working with ayahuasca and medicinal plants of the Amazon for more than 50 years. 

Ynes has reached a level of mastery in her healing ability that exemplifies the very best of traditional Shipibo healing. She is well known to be blessed with an incredible visionary ability in her ceremonies, as well as working with a tremendous amount of care and compassion. Ynes is a traditional ayahuasquera (specializing with ayahuasca), palera (specializing with medicinal trees) and tabaquera (specializing with tobacco), and is also an expert in treating gynecological issues.

Ynes has trained all of her children in plant spirit healing and often works closely with her two daughters Laura and Lila, as well as her son Jose.

Why Retreat?

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

To give my ego a break from all these construction projects. Layth

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
