Ayahuasca retreat & traditional Shipibo Dieta

in the Peruvian Amazon area

(jungle environment)

I feel very grateful and blessed to offer you since the beginning of 2018 our transformative life-changing Masterplant Retreats in the Peruvian jungle basin. The buzzing sounds of the jungle, our lovely Shipibo Host family, and the wooden huts placed right in the forest next to a lagoon create a special field to connect deeply with plant wisdom. Our Shipibo Healer, our Shipibo Host family, and I are there to support you during that time.



Accommodation & Location:

The group will be hosted in a place directly next to the lake Yarinachocha. There are different huts and rooms all connected by wooden bridges. We have the Malokka, the ceremony building, right there. I love this place, it has beautiful energy and we will be the only group there.

The owners are a shipibo family who live there as well and care very lovingly for their guests. We will have two meals a day, and the rest of the time during the diet will be fasting. The food will be local food. There will be vegetarian, vegan, chicken, and fish options. 

The place is very simply furnished. Every room has a mosquito net around it and a bed with a simple mattress. All rooms have a private bathroom. There is usually 24-hour tap water and electricity for some hours in the evening. 


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 boat ride far away from Yarina/Pucallpa.

Maybe you like to read some of our FAQs.


What does it mean for Ute / True - Journey to create a safe retreat?

For me, safety starts with the registration process. Everyone has to fill out a questionnaire and then there is a minimum 20 min video call with each person before someone can sign up for the retreat.

After that, for new people, there are at least 2 Preparation online Sessions included in the price. In these sessions, I explore with you your vulnerable spots, your traumas, your limitations, your fears, or/and challenges in life.

For me, these sessions are important as it belongs to the preparation to go deep with plant medicine.

Before someone comes, I want to get to know you, so I get a sense of your system, your patterns, and your energy. This creates already a connection between us and I get an idea of how I start with the dosage of Ayahuasca with you and I´m getting aware of which type of support you might need.

This helps to create a safe space for you in the ceremony and during the retreats. This work we do before also creates most of the time a field of trust as we get to know each other.

The Shipibo Maestros who work in our retreats are well chosen, which creates a safe field. As well I´m through my diets connected with these maestros, which invites the Plant Energies in a certain way. There is already a web of connections created, which holds the group and the individual.

I and the Co-Facilitators went through different trainings, educations, and own experiences in order to be skilled to be and interact with you during the process. We are all trauma-informed. We can sense and feel when emotions or energies are arising and we can be with you and hold the process with you together.

Afterward there are for new people at least 2 Integration Sessions included, with this service I offer you support in your time afterward back in life.
