Ayahuasca Foundation shipibo ayahuasca retreat led by authentic Shipibo curanderos in Iquitos Peru

Video Testimonials from Previous Program Participants

Participants discuss their experiences on the three week retreats

The retreat was amazing for me.  I’ve been disobedient to my doctor… but it worked out extremely well.  It was my wish to feel alive and vibrant and energetic without any of my medications.  I used to have fourteen, and it’s now been four or five days without any medication at all.  I just did a jungle hike this morning and no problems at all, so I think mission accomplished.  The camp is amazing.  I heard other people say in their reviews that it’s more a luxury than expected and I can totally agree.  It’s just an amazing place filled with love and healing.  Everything you need is here.

The retreat has been amazing.  The facilitators are incredible, actually.  Marcia is just wonderful.  She has this beautiful spirit about her.  Even when she speaks you can’t help but smile.  Keyo has this stoic seriousness about him when he’s working with the medicine but when you get him out of the maloca he’s just this fun guy who’s cracking jokes and pulling gags.  You see this beautiful duality in the world which is what you actually experience in ceremony as well.  The love I have for don Ronor is just insurmountable at this point.  He has taken my life from a place of total despair and lack of hope to…  I mean I can’t stop smiling.  It’s infectious here, in the best way.

I’m leaving a completely different person, or it’s the person I was, I don’t know.  I just feel so filled with love from being here.  Never really understood that, and so it’s been an amazing experience and ayahuasca really helped make it all happen and bring us all here together.  The accommodations were great… the mosquitoes were minimal… the accommodations were clean… it was perfect.  The whole camp is like a big spaceship.  It’s weird that we just spent three weeks in I don’t know how many square feet and it seems like the whole universe.  The food was delicious, even with no salt, no oil, no sugar, no caffeine… I think somebody already said it, it’s heaven on earth.

-Mary

The retreat was beyond my expectations.  It far fulfilled anything I thought I would be.  I loved the facilities.  The facilities are really quite basic but for all intensive purposes totally adequate.  It allows you to get your feet wet in the jungle while feeling a sense of comfort that I didn’t expect but I really enjoyed.  The bugs are totally manageable.  The ayahuasca ceremonies, it seems like one every other day isn’t that much but it turns out to be quite substantial.  The ceremonies themselves were varied, and they were all quite powerful and they all gave results.

The place is amazing.  The stars during the night, I haven’t seen so many stars so clearly in a long time.  There’s not city lights, so you can just be there, here in the sky.  And the frongs and the fireflies and all the sounds of the night.  It is beautiful here.  It was healing for my soul and I loved being here.  If you’re someone that’s considering should I participate in such retreat or not, you should ask yourself are you ready to do some hard work on yourself.  It’s not easy but it has results.  If you’re watching this testimonial, probably you want to do it, so why not?  It’s a good thing to try.  Ayahuasca Foundation is definitely a good place to start your journey.  I would just say go for it.

It’s felt like I’ve lived a lifetime in three weeks. I’ve really been able to almost reprogram myself and undo a lot of negative habits and a lot of negative ways of thinking about myself and my life and my past. It’s really brought a lot of healing and closure in many aspects of many lingering issues. It’s great. It’s fantastic. It’s been really lovely. It’s very comfortable. The location with the Mishana community is fantastic. Being able to interact with people and being on a reserve is lovely, being able to go hiking and experience the indigenous nature.

I’d say if you’re considering coming to Peru to drink ayahuasca and you’re doing your homework and you feel that this is an essential step in your path, then you already know that you are going to come here and you already feel that ayahuasca knows you’re coming. She’s already working on you and that’s going to make perfect sense when you finally join your first ceremony here. So, in terms of advice I’m gonna give friends and family who are ready to hear it… It’s so obvious: This is the retreat to come to.

- Samuel

I would consider the service and healing that you receive here with the Ayahuasca Foundation to be very top notch amongst all the programs that are offered here in the Amazon Rainforest. You feel very much at home. All your needs are catered to and it’s very evident that the personal growth and the healing that receive here are a priority to Carlos, the proprietor, and all of the helpers who work with the Foundation here at Mishana. It’s a beautiful location. The accommodation is superb and I highly recommend it.
