    Ayahuasca has become internationally known as a powerful and sacred plant medicine that can help us to heal, learn, grow and connect more deeply with spirit and our own highest calling.

    At The Garden of Peace we believe Ayahuasca is best worked with in the context of a process which provides time and support for integration and the gradual opening of your body and spirit to this medicine and its deep benefits.

    Our 7 Day Shamanic Detox is designed for those who feel called to work with Ayahuasca but for whatever reason do not want to commit right now to the more intensive master plant dieta program.

    We have designed this program to make the most of your time with us, to be nourished, supported and guided through your meeting with the spirit of Ayahuasca in a safe environment and to learn some tools which can help you continue this inner work when you leave.

    We will ask guests who attend this retreat to follow one week of preparation and one week of post-retreat guidelines as well as screening for our medical guidelines upon application.

    Our 7 Day Ayahuasca Shamanic Detox includes the following
    • Mapacho tobacco purge
    • 3 Ayahuasca ceremonies with Peruvian Master Shaman
    • All Ayahuasca friendly meals provided including high nutrition superfoods to support your cleansing process. We can cater for most dietary requirements such as allergies, vegan etc.
    • Accommodation in your own private hut.
    • 24 Hour access to trained English Speaking Staff
    • Floral baths to assist with cleansing and energetic protection.
    • Transport to and from the city of Tarapoto, Peru.
    • Optional supportive therapies and workshops such as yoga, meditation, chi gong and sharing circles.
    • We work with small groups of no more than 10 guests at a time. For this reason we are often fully booked in advance of retreat dates.

    In the Upper Amazon of Peru, Ayahuasca is part of a broader holistic medicine system which greatly relies upon deep immersion fasting with a range of powerful medicinal teacher plants. This process is traditionally referred to as a “dieta”.

    These are immersive personal journeys aimed at taking you into deep levels of cleansing, expansion and healing for mind body and spirit through the practices outlined below. It is through this process that the Maestros we work with have trained themselves. This is because dieta, when done right not only teaches and heals but also protects us on all levels and helps to manifest our dreams with clarity and magnetism.

    These dieta’s are serious spiritual work for mature people who are prepared to focus, surrender and receive the immense wisdom and healing available through this ancient traditional path. It is a delicate process that involves, preparation and adherence to strict guidelines before, during and after the retreat, not doing so can cause serious problems. Read more here.

    Stripping back the distractions of mind and society, assists us in creating the condition to reveal our true nature, our purpose on this earth, our heart’s truth. Also, when we are dealing with physical illness, as many are it takes time for the right plants to get deeply into our beings so that healing can occur.

    This is why Ayahuasca alone is not always enough.

    There are many spiritual paths to healing, but for those who feel called to plant medicine, it is a clear and heartfelt call, one worth listening too. The plants are living conscious beings that we enter a lasting relationships with and gain much from.

    Please note: Dieta is a very Delicate process. If you participate in a master plant diet with us you MUST follow a 30 day Post-Diet upon leaving. Not doing so can result in serious illness both spiritual and physical. Please consider this when making travel plans.

    In todays world many of us are blessed with the chance to learn from cultural traditions outside those from our native homes. At The Garden of Peace we have developed a deep love for both Plant Spirit Shamanism from Peru and the Yogic Path from India. These two paths have very many beautiful parallels in the way they train us to become more present, open and receptive to the natural divinity of this universe.

    We have found the two paths to be very complementary and have developed this special retreat to work with both in a delicate and supportive way which helps us to go deeper with each practice. A truly rich and in many ways new areas of spiritual exploration and personal healing which we are so excited to share.

    The retreat is designed for all levels of prior experience with yoga or Ayahuasca. We work with small groups in order to provide an adaptable personal level of care.
