More Info

    Are you ready for a one of a kind spiritual and self-healing experience? Nestled in the heart of the lush and verdant Ecuadorian jungle on the Jurumbaino River, our Ayahuasca and San Pedro healing and spiritual fulfillment center has a long and proud history of welcoming truth seekers and individuals striving for inner enlightenment from all around the world.

    An Authentic Ayahuasca and San Pedro Retreat

    While providing essential home comforts such as comfortable lodging and freshly prepared gourmet vegetarian or vegan meals each day, our Ayahuasca and San Pedro retreat is otherwise one of only a handful of authentic treatment centers in the entirety of South America.

    This is because while promoting physical wellness through deliciously prepared (and organic) vegetarian food, we also facilitate travel to genuine Ayahuasca and San Pedro ceremony site on the Jurumbaino river surrounded by rain forest. There, our guests are given the opportunity to spend the evening with an authentic local shaman. The next day, you will then be escorted back home in order to rest, reflect and prepare for your next ceremony. Even better, at all times you will be attended to by one of our very own local guides and translators.

    How Ayahuasca Heals

    Popularly known around the world as a shamanic gateway to the spirit world, Ayahuasca has traditionally been used for thousands of years as a healing medicine also. Made using two indigenous plants Banisteriopsis caapi & Psychotria viridis, Ayahuasca works by promoting massive mental and physical healing responses in the human body.

    While different for everybody, no one is ever not deeply affected by Ayahuasca. In like regard, few if any people ever come away from an Ayahuasca ceremony not feeling more spiritually and vitally restored than they did before arriving.

    How San Pedro Heals

    A lesser known but no less effective healing plant is a cactus called San Pedro. Like Ayahuasca, it has been utilized by Shamans for many thousands of years in shamanic healing ceremonies, and there have been numerous reports of its healing power for cancer, diabetes, and paralysis, as well as for emotional and psychological problems such as depression and grief.

    The Biblical Saint Peter, whom the plant was named after, is said to be the holder of the keys to Heaven, and so the name represents an opening of a gateway for us to enter into a dimension where we can experience the world as divine.

    Participants are said to be ‘set free from matter’ and ‘engage in flight through cosmic regions… transported across time and distance in a rapid and safe fashion’.

    One shaman described its effects as “First, a dreamy state… then great visions, a clearing of all the faculties… then detachment, a type of visual force inclusive of the sixth sense, the telepathic state of transmitting oneself across time and matter, like a removal of thoughts to a distant dimension.”

    In this way, San Pedro is said to remove our negative beliefs so the positive ones shine through and we can heal ourselves.

    Your Stay at our Ayahuasca and San Pedro Retreat

    Due to the powerful nature of such ceremonies, our Ayahuasca and San Pedro retreat focuses on marrying high-quality rest and relaxation periods with intense plant medicine experiences. This is why we provide you with a superb natural setting, intuitive and support staff and high-quality nutrition throughout your stay. We do, after all, want your stay here with us to be just as much a once in a lifetime experience as the Ayahuasca and San Pedro experiences themselves.
