Retreats are led by an indigenous curandero from the Shipibo culture. The curandero, don Ronor, learned from his father and grandfather, a vegtalisto and an ayahuasquero. He is the youngest of three brothers who are all experienced healers. He has a humility that brings a calm gratitude to his presence.He has extensive plant dietas with noya rao, bobinsana, marusa, chiric sanango, and chullachaqui. Don Ronor is constantly developing his own understanding and methods for healing, learning more icaros through his intimate connections to his dietas and plant spirit guides. He is also a father and his wife and children are usually with him on retreats, providing a wonderful light to the group experience. He works hard to provide the greatest level of healing, always wanting to prepare and administer as many remedies as he can during the ayahuasca retreat. All of the facilitators are so thankful for his dedication and willingness to share and teach the tradition. He is a true maestro.

how to choose an ayahuasca retreat center
written by carlos tanner
Our goal is to provide you with the optimal environment for you to replant your spirit. All treatments and activities are optional, so go at your own pace. two or three weeks is a relatively short period of time in the life of a human being, and we really see this process not as a complete and final solution to your problems, but as a new beginning, a foundation on which to build over time , providing inspiration for your spiritual growth. we are also here to let you know that anything is possible. what we have found is this: people who take responsibility for their own healing, put their trust and faith in the plants and in us, set aside expectations and truly engage with intention in their process. These people always get what they need, developing into the deepest depths of inner transformation possible for them, and then are gratefully ready to continue the work of integrating their experiences for the rest of their lives. p>

Apart from treatment of diagnosed conditions, Ayahuasca Retreats can also be an amazing way to regain the connection that so many people have lost, the connection to our true selves. At our core, we are truly spirits. We are not just bodies, minds, or emotions. We are spirits that have bodies, minds, and emotions. Our spirits are divine vessels of universal energy. It is this mysterious energy that motivates life to blossom. It is what turns a seed into a plant, what gives birth to consciousness, what makes love a reality.
