The Ayahuasca Foundation’s Retreat Center and Plant Medicine School in Peru

Healing Retreat Center

The Foundation’s original camp, the Chamisal retreat center, is located deep within the Allpahuayo-Mishana National Reserve. Getting there takes about 2 hours and requires a gorgeous one-hour boat ride up the Nanay river, a tributary of the Amazon. Surrounded by hundreds of miles of virgin protected rainforest, the camp is a true paradise.


Plant Medicine School

The Foundation designed their school, Inkan Kena, specifically for the Curandero Initiation Courses. Built and owned by don Enrique, the school is the perfect place to study the healing tradition of curanderismo in the Amazon Rainforest. Getting there from Iquitos takes about two and a half hours, which includes a 45 minute hike deep into the jungle.
