Details and More
During your stay, you’ll be immersed in vibrancy and majesty of the Amazon. All spaces at our retreat center are lovingly and thoughtfully crafted with comfort, healing, and aesthetics in mind.
We’ve made Rainforest Healing Center to be as comfortable as possible, while balancing its remote, rustic character.
Your retreat investment covers room and board. We’ve built seven tambos (mosquito-screened, palm frond or corrugated metal roof huts) on the property. Five of the tambos sleep two people, with the other two sleeping three. Tambos are furnished with writing desks for reflection and hammocks for relaxing when space allows.
While they are rustic, we’ve designed them to be very comfortable and enjoyable. It’s important to understand that you will be sleeping in the jungle and life’s wild hums and vibrations will be ever-present. In time, you’ll find the jungle sounds to be a living white noise machine that will help you fall asleep.
Ayahuasca ceremonies will be held in the Maloca (ceremonial hut), which was constructed by a master carpenter and architect from Pucallpa and is a powerful and beautiful space.
We offer bathing areas fed by a seasonal spring and rainfall.
We use buckets and ONLY biodegradable soaps to bathe with. If you have a preferential biodegradable soap/shampoo, please bring it. We also accept donations of your remaining liquid soaps for future guests. Our favorite soaps are Dr. Bronner’s due to their ingredients and support of reforestation and fair trade.
It may take a bit of acclimation, but the refreshing splash of cool water in the humid, hot jungle is something you start looking forward to enjoying!
Toilet facilities are mosquito-netted, composting toilet huts located at each tambo. After doing your business, you’ll toss the toilet paper in with your urine and fecal matter and cover it with a carbon material like sawdust or rice hulls, creating humanure compost to feed the fruit trees on site.
Hand sanitizer pumps are installed in every toilet and we encourage you to use them often to reduce the potential for illness.
Guests will enjoy three healthy and balanced meals a day. On ceremony days, guests participating in ceremony will have breakfast and lunch, but no dinner. This restriction helps ensure that your stomach is empty by the time ceremony participants drink the Medicine. This allows your body to absorb the Medicine fully and efficiently, and also reduce the amount of materials thrown up if your purging includes vomiting.
Master Plant Isolation Diets will be on a stricter, blander meal schedule that is prepared and brought to your tambo to reduce interactions with other people.
We DO NOT serve pork, salt, coffee, or sugar. We strive to feed everyone according to their needs and we don’t want anyone hungry or frustrated. We do request that you adhere to this diet; it greatly improves Ayahuasca’s ability to work effectively and efficiently during ceremony.
If you have any food allergies, sensitivities, or are vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free, please let us know and we will gladly accommodate you.
Rainforest Healing Center is accessed at KM 45.5 on the “highway” that connects Iquitos and Nauta in the Loreto province of Peru. From there you take a three kilometer hike over rolling hills along a dirt (sometimes muddy) path to arrive at our entrance.
Our workers will help you port any heavy luggage into the center, but be ready to break a sweat and possibly hike in the rain!
Once you arrive, your shaman or curandero will perform a smudging ceremony to help cleanse your spirit and belongings of any attached energies you may have brought or picked up during your travels. We use Palo Santo (“holy wood”), an aromatic wood that has been used for centuries in purification rituals and shamanic practices.
After cleansing your body with the smoke of the Palo Santo, the shaman will chant and spray a perfume, Aqua de Florida, to place a protection spell over your body and soul.
Once cleansed, you will ring our ceremonial bell three times to announce your arrival, and then you’ll cross the bridge as a symbolic gesture of stepping anew into your healing experience.
We are completely off-the-grid, hence do not have any internet connection at all. Since we are remote and deep in the jungle we do not have any reliable power sources for charging large, energy hungry devices like laptops. We do have some solar arrays installed for charging iPods/iPhones and some camera batteries, but we highly suggest either buying fresh, high capacity batteries for your devices, bringing spares. We do have a generator however we do not start it unless of an emergency, seeing how the noise is not pleasant to the fauna. We recommend detaching from technology to embrace and commune with the natural energy of the Amazon rainforest and yourself.
In case of emergency we do have a cellphone that sends and receives messages, but because of the rural location the service is very spotty.
