About The Teacher

I have more than 5 years of apprenticeship to an internationally renowned Tobaquero in Iquitos since 2012. I have been working independently of my teacher for more than 3 years, and continue to be in contact with him, when required to find the best solution for each individual.

Having spent much of my life working in a variety of jobs, but predominantly in a very corporate one, I would describe myself as quite functional in approach. Whilst there are many things which cannot be put into clear words in terms of this type of healing, I endeavour to keep things as clear, direct and simple as is possible: healing happens through trust.

I work prominently with tobacco, but can and do work with other plants and trees if and when it is applicable.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
