The Temple of the Way of Light is located about two hours from Iquitos (up to a one-hour walk from the nearest river). The Temple sits on over 175 hectares of rainforest land with buildings spread out over 20 hectares. The Temple also hosts a permaculture center with numerous projects flourishing across our grounds, supporting self-sufficiency and regeneration of the land. Our land is home to food forests, aquaculture systems, medicinal gardens, and successional poly-crop production of staple foods. We utilize solar energy (for operational use in our kitchens), spring-fed drinking water systems, running-water showers, integrated waste management (recycling, greywater systems, compost toilets), biochar soil-improvement techniques, and much more.
The Temple consists of (3) three centers;
9 and 12 Day Retreat Center
Where our standard 9- and 12-day workshops are carried out. Our ayahuasca retreats are developed in close co-operation with the Shipibo healers themselves, as far as possible in accordance with their traditional use of the medicinal plants of the Amazon.
Deep Immersion Center
Where we hold the Deep Immersion healing program for longer stays of 1, 2 or 3 months. The Deep Immersion Ayahuasca Retreat combines the traditional Amazonian Shipibo way of working with ayahuasca with a number of Western and Eastern integrative practices that support the healing journey.
