We charge an all-inclusive daily fee for our services, which includes transport from the Iquitos airport, private rooms, modern bathrooms and shower, meals, laundry, wifi internet and traditional medicine.
We are a healing center, operating as a lodge in the Amazon rainforest, 90 minutes outside of Iquitos, Peru near the small village of Llanchama along the Nanay River.
Traditional medicine services include traditional healing diets, plant medicine, and traditional Shipibo ayahuasca ceremony. If you are interested in visiting us, please email us to establish contact and verify availability at our center. From that point, we can plan your visit. As mentioned we will arrange for you to be picked up at the airport and transported to our center. Once you are here, your accomodations will be arranged and you will meet with our master healer. At that time you will describe your intention for your visit. Your treatment will then be tailored to your personal needs, often including further treatment with a master plant. Furthermore, in traditional style, you will then adhere to a strict healing diet developed to promote the healing work of the curanderos and our medicinal plants.
Once on the diet you will be invited to participate in ayahuasca ceremony for further ceremonial healing under the guidance of Ricardo and his assistants. In ceremony, you will be further treated by the curanderos through the mystical tradition of healing song, the icaros. We offer ayahuasca ceremony four nights per week. After ayahuasca ceremony, with the exception of Friday, there is a group discussion led by Ricardo to review experiences in the ceremony and to review the progress of all of our "pasajeros," that is to say our patients, our students, and our visitors.
In some cases, further treatment techniques are also indicated, including healing plant preparations for bathing and vapor treatment.
Traditional treatment requires time, visitors are encouraged to visit for one week or more. Group programs are often designed for 10 days or 2 weeks. More advanced treatment can take one or two months and sometimes longer.
For particular individuals, we also offer traditional diets for learning under the guidance of Ricardo. This level of training is best discussed in person with Ricardo himself.
