About The Teacher

Don Ronor is don Enrique’s brother and has been assisting him with the curandero initiation courses since 2013.  Like don Enrique, don Ronor was raised in a family of curanderos and comes from a long lineage of Shipibo plant doctors.  With an incredible knowledge of the plants, don Ronor continues to do dietas and study the science of healing.  His sense of humor and gentle, playful spirit allows program participants to feel comfortable in his presence, which creates an optimal environment for healing and connecting.  Don Ronor now leads healing retreats and assists in research at the Ayahuasca Foundation's Riosbo Ayahuasca Research Center.  His humility and kindness are expressed in care he provides, and he works hard to provide the best possible treatment for every participant.  He enjoys getting to know the participants and always makes friends with everyone who comes to do a program.

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.
