Mission Statement for Rainforest Healing Center
To facilitate the safe, and deep healing of individuals one cosmic being at a time through unconditional love so that present and younger generations have a loving planet to coexist in harmoniously.
Chakra Alegria de Amor (The Joy of Love Farm) is an Ayahuasca medicinal plant healing center and Permaculture farm; and we welcome you on your personal journey into the magical Amazon Rainforest, just outside Iquitos, Peru. It is our first priority to offer a safe, private, and sacred space tucked away on 60-acres of jungle property where Madre Ayahuasca originates, is propagated, and is deeply respected.
At Chakra Alegria de Amor, we offer several dietas such as Ajo Sacha, Chiric Sanango, and Uchu Sanango. Based on careful observation, discussion, and analysis by our Shaman and administrator. As we grow, we will offer massage and energy work to accompany Ayahuasca ceremony, healing modality classes, lectures by guest speakers, and internships for those interested in prolonged stays with us.
Medicine information (content and method of preparation)Type of Medicine: AyahuascaMedicine content :
Our brew is a mix of Ayahuasca, Chacruna and HuambisaMedicine preparation:
At the Rainforest Healing Center, we plant and harvest all of our own medicine. Every batch of medicine that we made is with ingredients from our property, and cooked on the premises. We never use Toè, and use Cielo Vine, Chacruna, and Huambisa. Depending on the group and their needs we might put some cutting from special trees. We allow the guest to partake in the preparation and cooking process, hence cooking their own medicine.

Accomodation detailsType of Accomodation:
More about the accomodation and food:
The accommodations at Chakra Alegria de Amor were designed and constructed with your experience and well-being in mind. The tambos (local Peruvian dialect for “bungalows”) are very comfortable, serene, and private. Individuals come here out of commitment to their healing—not with the intention of socializing or partying—so each tambo is completely isolated from the others tambos to support this process. Retreat and course participants have a choice to sleep in single or double-occupancy bungalow (tambo). Each bungalow is nestled into the rainforest while placing you as close to the power and majesty of the jungle. We’ve screened all bungalows with mosquito netting, each bed is equipped with a high-quality full size mattress to provide comfort and relaxation. We also equip each bed with netting to provide double protection from insects.
The Tambos/bungalows are all round and surrounded by specific Master Plants used in the dieta and/or Ayahuasca brew. We may place you in a certain bungalow if you are drinking and working with a specific plant Medicine, in order to build a relationship with that specific plant Master Plant Spirit.
SustainabilityHow we ensure sustainability:
We are blessed to have over 60 acres of prime tropical rainforest where we have been guided to create the Replanting Ayahuasca Project (or ‘Resembrando Amor‘* as we’re calling it in Spanish) with the main goal to: Replanting Ayahuasca Faster than it is Consumed This initiative uses our blessed center’s land to replant the vine and other plants including the chacruna and huambisa leaves used in ceremony to honor and replenish the Medicine nature has given us. We also want to give back to Madre Ayahuasca and thank her for all the healing she has provided and provides to individuals and the planet.
