Retreat details 2020 with Gilberto Mahua
02. April - 12. April

Ayahuasca retreat & traditional Shipibo Dieta in 2020 with Maestro Gilberto Mahua



Accommodation & location:


It´s the first time that we will organize a group with Papa Gilberto outside of his own village. This will give us the oportunity to have a more quite setting and a calm environment. I decided to do so, because more and more people are comming to his home to participate in ceremonies, this can be sometimes little distracting for people in a Masterplant Dieta.  Papa Gilberto can understand, that we want to do the group in a more private setting on the lake in Yarinacocha, he´s is happy to leave his village for 10 days to do the ceremonies with us.


The group will be hosted in a family place directly next to the lake - Yarinachocha. I use to do groups there with my other maestra.

There are different huts and rooms all connected with wooden bridges. We have the Malokka, the ceremony building right there. I love this place, it has a beautiful energy and we will be the only group there.

The owners are a shipibo family, they live there as well and care very loving about their guests. We will have 2 meals the day, the other time during the dieta will be fasting time. The food will be local food. There will be a vegetarian, vegan, chicken and fish option. 

The place is very simple furnished. Every room has a mosquito net arround and has a bed with a simple mattress. Some of the rooms have a private bathroom, some of the rooms have a shared one. There is usually 24h tap water and during the evening for some hours electricity. 


The jungle is around, it´s all very green and on one side you have the lake. Because of the location, there are insects and mosquitos, sometimes more, sometimes less. Just be aware the location is in the jungle, a 20 min boatride far away from Yarina/Pucallpa.
