Art and Research Opportunities

At Pisatahua we oversee art residencies and research sabbaticals for qualified and dedicated individuals. We’re particularly interested in residents looking to expand their consciousness, while making a positive contribution to our global community.

Research Sabbaticals

Individuals with a sincere desire to work with plant medicines as a cognitive tool to further their scientific development are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who clearly define their research and its role in addressing human and ecological predicaments of the 21st century.

* Applications are welcome from any discipline.

Art Residents

At Pisatahua we provide a space for artists to challenge their normal boundaries and further hone their skills.  We provide the infrastructure and support for artists to safely and comfortably connect with, and be inspired by, the wonders of the Amazon Jungle.

At Pisatahua our isolated retreat location removes many external distractions.  In this environment artists can achieve heavily-concentrated and deeply-creative states.  The Amazon Jungle provides much of the inspiration, and the plant medicines allow artists to access spectacular visionary realms and unique mental processes.

* Pisatahua is especially interested in visionary painters; however, applicants from other mediums such as creative writing and music are encouraged to apply.

Pisatahua Provides

We provide dedicated individuals the rare opportunity to live in an Amazon sanctuary with impressive biodiversity, while learning about plant medicines from traditional healers. All residents receive free-accommodation, clean-water, access to kitchen, some local transportation, and access to on-site activities.  During retreats, residents will be provided the same food as our guests.  Residents also have access to our communal-home and non-profit office in the town of Riberalta with office spaces, accommodations, kitchen, internet, etc.

We believe that new ideas and artistic expressions are required to address the unique set of social and ecological problems we face as a global society.
