An Authentic Ayahuasca Retreat
At Santuario Huishtin, our authentic ayahuasca retreat is a “life-opening” experience.
Planning Your Ayahuasca Retreat
Whether you are embarking on a new journey or continuing along on your medicine path, your ayahuasca retreat at Santuario Huishtin will be memorable and long lasting. The revolutionary power of Ayahuasca and allied plant teachers under the wise guidance of maestro Santiago Enrrique, the loving energy of his wife Ayme, and family combined with the profound tranquility of the rainforest and the thermal river will be deeply transformative and accompany you to your final days.
At Santuario Huistin, we are committed to offering you an ayahuasca retreat at a reasonable price but with maximum benefits. Santuario is a traditional, family-run center that is intimately focused on working with the plants in the “Vegetalismo” tradition. Ceremonies are generally small in attendance (10-15 people maximum). Pricing is modest compared to many ayahuasca retreat centres and importantly includes work other Amazonian plant medicines. The type of plant dietas offered with ayahuasca will depend on your length of stay and what the maestro deems best.
Ayahuasca retreat ceremonies generally take place 3 evenings per week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays). The pricing is set as a day rate enabling you to be flexible with your retreat design. **All medicines, food, and accommodations are included in the price. Please note, prices do not include airfare or travel to Santuario or within Peru. Unless otherwise specified, all retreats focus on working with Ayahuasca in cooperation with other Amazonian plant medicines that are decided by the maestro on a case by case basis.
With Santiago Enrrique Paredes Melendez and Ayme Vargas
Santuario is fast becoming recognized as an ideal place to commit to longer and deeper explorations into the plant teachings. Some dieteros spend up to six months or longer dieting in the rainforest to receive the guidance and instruction from ayahuasca and other master plants. The rainforest is full of teacher plants that both heal and empower the mind, body, and spirit in mysterious ways. It is possible to do plant dietas as individual retreats or a succession of plant dietas either with or without ayahuasca. Amongst the most common dietas are with chiric sanango, renaquilla, renaco, bobinsana, ajo sacha, uchu sanango, pinon blanco, mocura, amongst many others. Lengths of dietas are determined by the maestro and are priced the same as an ayahuasca retreat. Please see this page for more information on Teacher Plants.
Tambo is the ultimate dieting experience. Individuals may also choose to diet in a tambo, a solitary hut in the jungle, where one can enjoy complete solitude to work on one’s healing while having regular ceremonies and consultations with the Maestro. In this environment, it is possible to realign one’s body and mind back into the rhythms of nature and detoxify from the stress and anxiety of life in the city. In tambo, it is possible to immerse oneself in the energy of the rainforest and open to the knowledge and benefits of the plant teacher
Please be advised that work with Amazonian plant medicines, while being transformative, is also experimental and the end results can not be guaranteed. As a participatory medicine, much depends on your commitment to your healing during your ayahuasca retreat and when you return home. It is recommended that you continue with a programme of healing at home that involves a nourishing clean diet and supportive habits, proper rest and, optimally, a mind-body practice with plenty of time for reflection. Counselling or coaching with knowledgable practitioners or guides is also very important, particularly in the early “integration” phase. This holistic approach will advance and accelerate your healing process manifold.Contact Us
