- Retreat Itinerary
Deep-immersion guests are invited to participate in all the activities offered to our 9-day retreat participants; however, our healers generally recommend these guests limit their physical and social activities. Each plant-medicine dieta is unique and so are the prescribed recommendations.
Guests are welcome take out a canoe, borrow a fishing pole, explore our property, or assist our volunteers; however, most prefer to their days relaxing in their cabins. All cabins are distanced throughout our 80 hectare property, allowing month-long guests to remain in relative isolation, should they choose.
Food is provided and guests can also request access to the kitchen to prepare their own meals. A minimum of 2 intimate ayahuasca ceremonies are held per week with the local community. Guests should expect about 10 ceremonies per month.
* Monthly immersion guests are welcome to arrive any day of the week. Our staff will help plan your arrival, assist in booking internal (Bolivian) flights, make hotel reservations, and pick you up from the airport. Guest are also welcome to extend their retreat beyond a month.
