We welcome you to our Ayahuasca Lodge set in beautiful gardens and offering delicious organic Kichwa cuisine. We have a wide range of treatments available, either in your room or outdoors, to complement your Ayahuasca experiences. Napusamai has a panoramic view of the Napo River awaiting you and is the ideal refuge to harmonize mind, body and spirit. Kichwa families in Kuyaloma know where you can feel the warmth of the sun with the Amazon rain forest. The local culture inspires unique experiences with their Kichwa philosophy, tourism trips and traditional characteristic architecture mingling in harmony with nature. In the Kichwa community of Kuyaloma in the Ecuadorian Amazon lives the Andi Vargas family. We still live where our elders lived and where they developed their own customs and beliefs. We use the knowledge that they gained from mother nature and passed down to us. Our duty is to practice and preserve this wise knowledge of our elders from hundreds of years ago by practicing the use of medicinal plants for physical and spiritual healing, primarily through the use of Ayahuasca and other medicinal plants. Feather Crown have also been working with the family for over three years here in Kuyaloma, with Don Luis teaching and sharing his own knowledge with visitors to Napusamai. Our retreats are for those looking to experience a different culture and to learn in a mature and thoughtful relationship with sacred healing plants. in order to heal the body, mind, spirit, emotions, clarity of consciousness, self-discovery and good spiritual balance. We provide a peaceful and harmonious relationship with Mother Nature to enable you to heal in a very sacred meditation full of positive energy, mind, body, and soul giving thanks to Mother Nature. Therefore, we invite you to have patience and faith, free of prejudices and fears. Our retreats are eight to ten days of treatment with medicinal plants. Don´t lose this opportunity!
