    “For those called to work with the plant, this is the place to do it, right at the source. No secondary reflection of it elsewhere can possibly match the authentic nature of the experience offered here at the Temple.”

Written Reviews

The experience at the Temple has been a profoundly life-changing experience.
The Temple is amazing, fantastic, life-changing, phenomenal, all-loving, non-judgmental, peaceful, humbling and friendly.
I came out of the experience feeling whole and full of insights into the blind spots that have held me back in life.
I benefitted profoundly from the ancient healing wisdom and practice of the Shipibo Shamans, unadulterated, pure and directly from the source.
The maestras/os are incredible with vast healing experience and knowledge, so loving, nurturing and truly invested in the wellbeing of all participants.
The center is led by an extraordinary group of people who are able to support participants at any level of experience on their journey of self development.
The Temple is a safe and supportive retreat center with a deep respect for the Shipibo way and a genuine commitment to provide the best.
Every aspect of the Temple has been considered as a support to the healing process. The Temple has succeeded in proving to be a very safe and supportive environment.
Although I tried to come without expectations, the Temple far exceeded those I did have. I truly could not imagine taking ayahuasca in any other setting, as I don’t believe the experience could get any better than this!
