Safety During the Retreat

We want to offer a safe and unforgettable experience for everyone and for this reason, the group will be undergoing the antigen test before entering the center on the first day of the retreat. Our facilitator will inform you of the pick-up time. Our facilitator will get in touch with you once you are in Iquitos or before arriving. After collecting you with the group at Nativa Apartments Boutique Hotel we will transfer to the
testing hub in Iquitos and after at the center. The cost of the aforementioned test will be borne by the guests ($25USD).

If your test is POSITIVE we will ask you to return to Nativa Apartments Boutique Hotel to follow the required isolation.

Application

Our comprehensive screening questionnaire has been developed in partnership with the International Centre for Ethnobotanical Education, Research and Service (ICEERS). Please take your time to answer it as honestly and with as much detail as possible. This information will remain strictly confidential and will only be used to assess your suitability for a place on retreat with AYA Healing Retreats and keep you safe

Please remember that the purpose of this screening questionnaire is to determine whether plant medicine healing is suitable for you…not whether you are suitable for plant medicine healing. Plant medicines are tools, like any other healing modality and like other tools for healing experiencing them entails certain risks. We need to make sure that our plant medicines will not compromise your wellbeing or harm you in any way before we allow you to begin your healing journey with us. In short, we care about your safety and we need to do what we can to ensure that during your time with us you are not at risk of harm. Plant medicines can be dangerous if the plants are not the right fit for the individual. Your answers to this questionnaire will help us to determine whether the plants we intend to use are going to help, rather than harm you
