Retreat Center Category: Ayahuasca
Casa de la Madre is a small guesthouse on the front of the lake at Yarinacocha, Peru that works specifically and authentically with ayahuasca and the medicinal plants from the amazon jungle and master curenderos.
We work all year round and are not focused on group dates. Your time starts when you arrive and the length of stay depends on you. We do advise no less than a week. If wishing to do a dieta then, depending on which plant you will need to allow more time.
We focus on individual healing and teaching and employ both mestizo and shipibo master curenderos/curenderas for this work with our guests.
At the most we accept at any one time is 8 people but more often than not there are fewer. This enables us to focus on you and to provide the healing or learning to you as a unique individual.
Our guesthouse is lovely with basic rooms but well equiped, screened and clean. It sits on the lake front in Yarinacocha about half an hour from Pucallpa. In the dry months from June to December you can walk along the lake to the village. In the other months access is by boat only and is so beautiful and quiet. We have 3 little monkeys and 2 dogs.
We serve only the freshest food bought from the market daily or grown here in our gardens and prepared in our kitchen. Fresh fruit and vegetables, chicken, fish, juices and super foods from Peru.
Included is airport pick up and drop off, 3 ceremonies per week (but more can be arranged during your stay), all meals, flower baths, translation to english, twin share accomodation.
Cielo who owns and runs the guesthouse and the retreats is from Australia and has lived continuously here in the amazon for 7 years working with guests and aprentising with many plants and curenderos. She speaks both english and spanish and is dedicated to this work.
