Our location & venue

The retreats are located in the jungle close to the lake of Yarinacocha. The next airport is Pucallpa. The place is only accessible by boat.

 

It is a basic nice jungle lodge accommodation. It has 10 single tambos with a own private bathroom.

 

The Maloka, the round ceremony building is on the same property and the center of the venue.

The place is save and the host family which also lives there takes always good care about us. I know them since 2017 and stayed very often by myself with them in one of the huts. Since beginning of 2018 I take our groups there. 

All the family members support our well being. The place is surrounded by the forest. There are huge Oje trees and as well Bobinzana trees around. The family has many other healing plants on the groud.

The two elders of the family are both vegetalistas. Both of them can offer prepare plant medicines for certain issues and support to your healing process.

On one side of the property is a huge lagoon and a wooden walkway/bridge. It can be a good place to rest, to watch the sunrise or to write in your journal.

There is also a nice spot to put your hammock, often participants hang out there to be in silence or to socialize a litte with the other group members.

Depending on the season and if you are lucky you can see dolphines in the lagoon.

The level how much you enjoy being outside depend on the mosquito occurrence and your sensitivity.

Please be prepared that the bed, the room and the toilettes are simple. When ever you want to have a cleaning of the room or change of bed sheets this will happen.

 

We also provide vegan, vegetarian, meat or fish options for your meals. Of course all is dieta friendly.

If you decide to fast, there are coconuts provided.

We will be in the jungle, which is why there are insects and mosquitos, depending on the weather there will be more or less.

I consciously chose this venue, because it is run by this very kind shipibo family. For me this place is very accomodating to work with the plants, as will it has a authentic vibe.

For me it plays an important role to support local shipibo people, also from the perspective of reciprocity. 

 

It has a certain energy to work with the medicine in an authentic environment where we receive mainly local food and are hosted by a local family. This can give you a little sense of their culture and it can give a feeling of being home. This family place gives you a different "vibe" then staying in a bigger center.

For me there is always magic in simplicity, and to leave our comfort zones always provides the opportunity to explore ourselves more.

 

An environment which is close to nature helps us to connect to the plants, to self, and to truth.

The jungle and its sound backdrop holds a wonderful container for our inner processes.

In case you want to have more luxury for your private group, please talk to me. There are suitable options as well in the area.
