Our retreats combine different plant medicines for those who seek a responsible way of elevating their self awareness and consciousness. We have crafted a retreat that help facilitate and encourage self transformation.
The sacred medicine of Ayahuasca sheds light into your reality and shows you what you need to heal, and/or integrate in order to transcend onto higher levels of expanded awareness and harmony. We will also have the cleansing power of Kámbo, the gentle guidance of Huachuma, the meditative breathwork and the centering power of Rapé.
We have been facilitating ceremonies for more than 20 years and the experience that we have gained has given us the confidence to provide a space that is both safe and nurturing.
With the encouragement of the people around you, the stability of the facilitators, and the guidance of the medicine; you will feel the strength and courage that was always within you, urging you to make the change you’ve been seeking, and although you must take each step on your own, you will not be alone.
One does not have to be of a specific spiritual belief to use or get the benefits of this medicine. Recognized by native tradition as a “teacher plant” Ayahuasca facilitates holistic healing and self discovery, far beyond the frontiers of any conventional treatment.

SAN PEDRO CEREMONY
San Pedro ceremony is the perfect closure for helping integrate your Ayahuasca experience with one of the most contemplative and heart healing medicine plants in the andes of South America.
San Pedro (Huachuma) is a teacher plant (Grandfather medicine) that will give you the opportunity of stopping the stream of thoughts and reconnect you to the presence that emerge of the stillness of nature.
We will hold a San Pedro Ceremony on the last day of the retreat, lead by facilitators in the community who have extended experience in the use of this teacher plant. A typical daytime ceremony with this heart-opening medicine lasts around 10 hours and is likely a potent transformational experience, involving intuitive insight; it is a perfect complement for the integration of your week long experience with Madre Ayahuasca.
Kambo treatment will be offered after Ayahuasca ceremony to help release emotions and toxins from the body.
The Kambô therapy uses the venom (poison) released by the Giant Monkey Frog (Phyllomedusa bicolor), providing deep healing and a boost for your immune system.
One Kambô session will be included during the retreat for you to try the experience and its benefits. If you would like we can arrange other optional treatments during the retreat.
The session lasts anywhere from 45 min to 90 min depending on the person. The ‘intense’ part lasts anywhere from 5 to 40 min.
Rapé is the general name given to medicines that are grinned into fine powder and then blown into both nostrils. Most rapés are made with tobacco and other ingredients.
Rapé can help us to move the energy that is blocked or when we feel stuck during Ayahuasca ceremonies. The use of Rapé is considered by the indigenous peoples to be therapeutic on multiple levels. On the mental level it is known for clearing the mind, as well as helping to find ones center.
We have been working exclusively with rapé from the yawanawa and Kaxinawa (Huni Kuin) tribes that is prepared with lots of prayers, respect and lots of focused attention and intention to be a helpful medicine. This medicine is composed by sacred tobacco and the ashes of a tree known as tsunú, which is consider to be one of the most used trees as remedy for many ailments.
