About us

Jim Davis comes from Seattle, Washington in the USA. He has had an interesting and eclectic life working at various occupations including commercial fisherman in the Bering Sea, chemist, then software engineer. His study of religion and spirituality eventually bought him to South America where he has experienced a variety of plant medicines. He has participated in over 300 ceremonies with 30 different shamans in Ecuador and Peru, and is currently training to be an ayahyasquero. Being on the other side of a life-long struggle with depression and alcoholism, his compassion and understanding of human nature has greatly helped many clients who come to the Hummingbird in search of relief from depression, or simply a reprieve from their busy western lives. Those interested in how ayahuasca can help with depression may want to read his article Ayahuasca as a Cure for Depression .

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
