Retreat Center Category: Ayahuasca
Dr Sanango provides authentic shamanic healing with Master Plants Ayahuasca and Sanango, as well as other medicinal rainforest plants. We facilitate ayahuasca healing retreats and shamanic dietas at Chinchelejo Lodge, the family home of indigenous ayahuascero Don Eluco Navarro. Chinchelejo Lodge is located in the Amazonian village of Jenaro Herrera on the banks of the Ucayali River, about 200km from the city of Iquitos. Our retreats include ayahuasca ceremonies in natural settings as well as the maloca (ceremony house). In addition we have various communal activities in the surrounding jungle such as fishing, medicinal plant collection and jungle treks. This is not a luxury retreat but an opportunity to experience real Amazonian healing and living with a highly experienced indigenous shamanic healer and his family.
