Why Our Ayahuasca Retreats

  • Female and Male Shipibo Healers

    All ayahuasca retreats at the Temple are led by four Shipibo healers (two female and two male) who are supported by a female herbalist, three westerner facilitators, and a large staff of over 50 local people. Our Shipibo healers are masters of ayahuasca healing who safely, responsibly and expertly guide our guests' experiences throughout each retreat.

    More About Our Healers
  • Safe Ayahuasca Retreats

    The safety of our guests is paramount. We offer the safest ayahuasca healing experience in the Amazon. We have developed the most stringent health and safety protocols available on any ayahuasca retreat in Peru. Our 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.

    More About Safety
  • Preparation

    All guests are sent a guidebook with extensive advice on how best to prepare for ayahuasca retreats at the Temple. We also offer one on one preparation sessions with one of our integration specialists. Due to the non-linear nature of plant-spirit healing, your healing process actually begins the moment you commit to coming to the Temple.

    More About Preparation
  • Facilities and Accommodation

    We are located in an extraordinarily beautiful jungle setting, two hours from Iquitos, in the Peruvian Amazon. All guest accommodation is in comfortable private bungalows spread throughout our extensive grounds, surrounded by medicinal plants, trees, ayahuasca vines, native flowers, and ornamentals, as well as permaculture projects, fish farms, demonstration agroforestry plots, and our own food production sites.

    More About Facilities and Accommodation
  • Integration

    The medicine does not stop working when the ceremony ends or when the retreat is over. Ayahuasca initiates an ongoing process of healing and increasing awareness that rises over time, often taking months or years. The goal of integration is to maximize that healing process.

    More About Integration
