A Fully Inclusive and Immersive Journey

We do everything we can to provide you with the best possible experience on your journey with us. Part of that commitment to you includes providing ‘extras’ while you’re here – at no extra cost to you.

Why do we do this? Because in our experience these ‘extras’ are important elements of a potentially life-changing journey for you and it’s important to us that they are available for anyone and everyone. 

In other words, we want you to have the best experience possible without wondering whether extra expenses for additional services would make your journey more significant or profound in some way. We remove those questions from the very beginning of your journey to provide space for you to enjoy and immerse yourself fully in everything we have to offer.

The AYA Healing Retreats Experience

For more than eight years, we have invited people to join us in Iquitos, in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, for life-changing ayahuasca experiences with Shipibo curanderos. We provide our guests with unforgettable, often life-changing journeys.

We invite you to consider us for your own journey:

Firmly Rooted In Ancient Tradition

Our retreats focus on education in the shamanic traditions of the Peruvian healers with classes and workshops on Icaros, Master Plants, and a variety of plant treatments. We are rooted in ancient traditions and we provide a fully immersive experience that includes much more than simply ayahuasca plant medicine!

Focus On Personalized Treatments

The holistic approach of traditional shamanic natural medicine is not only centered on Ayahuasca but also on personalized plant treatments. You are unique and your experience here will be unique. This includes in-depth screening to ensure your physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being, one-on-one consultation with healers, a unique program during your stay, and individualized care from our staff.

The shaman is a true master, and very generous. And the other staff are trained mental health professionals. That really makes a difference! I never felt so cared for in my whole life.

Aya healing retreat was everything and more. In addition to the 5 ceremonies, we did a plant dieta, saunas, love baths, and body work by Teo. The entire staff was amazing. Don Miguel was a wonderful and joyous leader and the facilitators Kris and Lara were AMAZING as well. They were so supportive the entire time. Especially during ceremony when you need help in any way. EVERY meal was amazing and delicious. But most importantly, I received so much clarity with my intentions and was able to connect with God which was one of my intentions.

I received so much more from the retreat and the individuals participating in the care that I ever anticipated. The love and grace with which everyone operated was so refreshing. This was a remarkably Human Experience for me. I was able to reconnect with parts of myself that I lost over time. I'm very very satisfied. Don Miguel Teo Lara and Cristina along with the entire support staff made my experience memorable and once in a lifetime extraordinary.

Wow what a life changing experience. I can not recommend this retreat centre highly enough. The wisdom that Mastero Don Miguel brings is next level and Teo the medicine man was incredible in changing my physical body. The facilitators Kris and Lara with all their experiences made this transformation way easier for me and really helped me through some tricky stuff. The whole staff were so kind and accommodating. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable making my jungle experience such an enjoyable one. This whole experience was very authentic and real. Thank you Aya healing retreat for changing my life through ur support and wisdom

What I loved the most about my Aya retreat was that it was a full service. I truly felt this was much more than just a 5 x Ayahuasca ceremony. Thanks to Teo and Don Miguel I not only fixed underlying medical/physical conditions that modern médecine couldn’t fix. I also felt very safe (environment, people, center) to explore Ayahuasca and other plant medicines for the first time in my life. At Aya healing center you will feel 100% supported, respected and free of jugement. What a magical, safe, healing paradise. I 100% recommend.
