Why do we call this one of the best Ayahuasca Retreats?
It is held in the location of Pullcapa, at the heart of the Shipibo tribe of Peru. Most Peruvian Ayahuasca retreats take place in the jungle of Iquitos. However, Pachamama Temple chose to stay in the land of the Shipibo people. This is where the shamans work in their natural, family-like environment. This truly makes it one of the best Ayahuasca Retreats.
The team of Shipibo healers and Western facilitators have carefully designed this plant medicine retreat experience putting a lot of focus on community and integration. This is considered to be an important part of the healing process. Additionally, they provide their guests with the opportunity to learn about the mystical Shipibo culture. This includes classes on Arts, Crafts, Language and History of the Shipibo tribe of Peru.
What makes this plant medicine retreat so special?
During this retreat there is plenty of one-on-one time with the healers and facilitators. This helps to guide you through your Ayahuasca plant medicine retreat experience. Guests are provided with the utmost safety and service. Your visit will give you the feeling of visiting the healers in their own home. Here they are open, joyful and relaxed.
Pucallpa (which means “red earth” in the native tongue) is located in eastern Peru on the banks of the Ucayali River. This river is the major tributary of the Amazon River. Pucullpa is in an isolated section from the rest of the country by the Amazon Rain Forest and the Andes mountain range, thus unspoiled by mass tourism. There are no persistent vendors trying to sell you something at every corner. The local residents of Pucallpa are very friendly and helpful people.
The team of experienced Shipibo shamans use traditional healing methods and the sacred plants of the Amazon Rain Forest. The guided spiritual retreats ceremonies facilitate a deep spiritual awakening process and happiness to those who seek it. Supported by English-speaking retreat facilitators, you are provided a genuine, caring and safe environment for personal growth and conscious transformation.
After your first ceremony, you will see why this is considered as one of the best Ayahuasca retreats in Peru.

The Ayahuasca plant medicine retreats at Pachamama Temple take place in two Ashram style buildings on the Temple grounds. All of guests have a single room for themselves which is simple and rustic. The rooms are comfortable, safe and protected by mosquito netting. In your room, there is a single bed, a desk and a wooden safe box to secure with your own travel lock. Showers are near, only 50 meters away from your room.
People of all nationalities and religions are invited to experience Ayahuasca, especially those who feel called to work with the medicine. It works best for positive and sincere people with an open-heart and mind and who are interested in spiritual awakening and development. The 12 day retreat is well suited to people who are new to working with Ayahuasca, as well as those who are experienced.
Using plant medicine for healing can be emotionally rewarding. However, please be mindful of your expectations. Some people who come to try it expect that they may have mind-blowing visions, have incredible insights or be healed instantly. It is not a quick fix! The ego may want that, but your higher self knows better. You may confront your shadows and that may cause some unexpected low feelings. However, those who are experienced with this natural healing medicine, know that this is a "healing crisis". Sometimes we feel worse before we feel better. The best expectation is to be prepared to "surrender" to the medicine and develop a trusting relationship with Mother Ayahuasca.
It should be mentioned that Ayahuasca is not suitable for everyone. There are some exceptions such as psychological and physical conditions or potential medical contraindications.
