Meet Your Retreat Center


We have partnered with the Nihue Rao retreat center to provide us with profound ayahuasca experiences that balance authentic Shipibo tribal healing tradition with western medical safety protocols. 

  • Safety
    Nihue Rao was co-founded with Dr. Tafur, MD, a pioneering western doctor who’s spent that last 10 years experimenting to find new ways to reliably merge ayahuasca treatments with western treatments to cure disease.
    If you are curious about this topic or want to learn more about the mission and vision of Nihue Rao, we recommend Dr. Tafur’s recent book, Fellowship of the River.  (Note: Dr. Tafur will not be present during our retreat.)
  • Experience
    Ayahuasca shaman Ricardo Amaringo in a native Shipibo healer and a co-founder of Nihue Rao. Ricardo has facilitated many thousands of ayahuasca ceremonies and over 3000 at Nihue Rao since its founding in 2011.
  • Comfort
    By ayahuasca retreat center standards Nihue Rao amazing. Beautiful location, spacious private rooms, white sand, and very few biting insects.

Optional Amazon jungle 4-star eco-lodge adventure…


While not part of our program, I highly recommend that you treat yourself to a 3-day Amazon jungle eco-lodge experience after your ayahuasca retreat.

I have visited the Haliconia Eco-lodge and feel that it is the ideal setting to relax and experience Amazon jungle tours. 4.5 stars on Trip Advisor makes this among the best Amazon eco-adventure experiences available. There are more exotic eco-lodges available, I have scouted two of the best and still recommend Haliconia. It is much closer and better priced than the others.

Words don’t do the Amazon justice.

>> See the Haliconia Eco-lodge website.

I believe this jungle experience will meet your bucket list standards!



In 2015 Fast Company assigned a documentary filmmaker to create a profile on the Machu Picchu Ayahuasca Mastermind program.
It’s an honest portrayal of the program experience and impact. See it now on Fast Company’s website.

"As CEO of a startup in hyper-growth, I feared the time away would hurt my business. What I discovered was the perspective that came with distance, a better understanding of what I want to achieve, my core values and who I am as a human, as well as the insights gained in conversation with fellow participants, lead to a greater positive impact on my business than if I had stayed home and worked.”
