Pioneering Ayahuasca Retreat Center in the Peruvian Amazon
The Temple has safely facilitated healing for thousands of people since 2007 and forged an exemplary reputation for stringent safety protocols, compassionate care and a balance of female and male healers and facilitators. We have used our experience to fine-tune a synthesis of ancient Shipibo medicine traditions and modern and Eastern integrative practices that now extends to comprehensive aftercare and integration support long after guests have returned home. All this takes place with an institutional focus on sustainability, permaculture, ethics, and social responsibility.
Ayahuasca Retreats in Peru
We offer ayahuasca retreat programs with a balance of female and male Shipibo healers, experienced western facilitators, floral baths, a steam bath, individually prescribed plant remedies, a high ratio of healers to guests, a high number of ayahuasca ceremonies, individual consultations, a nutritional and balanced ayahuasca food diet, and a strong focus on how to process and integrate healing, both during and after each ayahuasca retreat.
Setting And Safety
The safety of our guests is paramount. We are constantly working to offer the safest container and most effective ayahuasca healing experience in the Amazon. We have developed the most stringent health and safety protocols available on any ayahuasca retreat in Peru. The Temple’s commitment to guests begins with in-depth medical and psychological screening during our booking procedure and continues after the retreat through our integration support. Guiding you safely through deep personal healing and growth is our priority, both in and out of ceremony.
News about the Temple and Ayahuasca
The Temple was founded on the philosophy that an atmosphere of genuine care and compassion provides the optimum conditions for healing. Over many years we have become well known for the sensitive style of our facilitation and the level of support offered to guests by our entire team. A compassionate healing environment is a sometimes overlooked component of what constitutes safety. The non-judgmental setting we provide allows guests to be vulnerable and open, both necessary states for deep healing, while undergoing their ayahuasca experience.
Reciprocity in the Amazon
According to indigenous Amazonian wisdom, sharing is the key to maintaining a healthy, balanced life for all. Native people consider protection and preservation of the rainforest sacred duties. Yet with the great increase in popularity of ayahuasca shamanism, we are concerned that the spirit of sharing and protection is being lost. We promote and foster ways to honor and work in reciprocity with the world’s most bio-diverse ecosystem, its people and their traditions.
The Temple holds a vision for the mastery of indigenous healers to be respected, legitimized and honored in the modern world. We aim to cultivate a more sophisticated understanding of the Shipibo system of shamanic healthcare in the West through validating the efficacy of their ethno-medical traditions. We share in the inheritance of the Indigenous wisdom tradition that celebrates a spiritual dimension between all life on Earth, a dimension fundamental to our personal and social balance.
After hearing about other places in South America to experience Ayahuasca, the Temple must be the best and safest for first timers.
The healers are without a doubt guides to wisdom, health and love. They were gentle and loving with boundless compassion.
The healers are absolutely amazing. I believe that this work is exactly what is needed for planetary healing and I am so grateful to the Shipibo people and their dedication to this work as well as the staff.
What sets the Temple apart from other ayahuasca retreats is the level of love and support. This place is truly amazing.
By far this has been the most intense, hardest and most beautiful memorable time I have ever had.
Having done other ayahuasca workshops in Peru, I came to the Temple with the intention to work with the Divine feminine and know the medicine on a deeper level and bring new people to the medicine. The Temple blew me away upon setting foot through the gateway. This place is truly magical.
I love the work you are doing here and I am truly grateful for the way in which the Temple, the jungle, the staff and the plants are transforming the world of consciousness and awakening of mankind, one workshop at a time.
The Temple is such an eye opening, inspiring place. It is organized with great love and care.
I could never have imagined how profound and absolutely extraordinary my experience at the Temple would be. From the moment I arrived I felt the magic of the special place. I have healed and evolved and feel like I have come out on the other side.
Blown away with the love, care and kindness. The Temple is a magical place.
From the very first moment I entered the retreat, I knew it was a special place. I can´t fault anything I have witnessed here—a magical and professionally run retreat.
I got more than I expected from the workshop. I experienced true healing from the Maestras and Maestros. I see them as very kind doctors/healers and the Temple as a hospital.
To say that my 12 days at the Temple was life changing doesn´t do it justice. It truly has to be experienced to be believed.
