There is conviction here in the Amazon that everything can be healed. All illness have a right solution, the only question is time, which must be appropriate for the seriousness of the problem.

The initial dietas are 10 days long. These are good for simpler plants such as Ajo Sacha (Mansoa Alliacea) or Bobinsana (Calliandra angustifolia), Uña de Gato (Cat’s Claw, Uncaria Tormentoso). Of course, these plants can be dieted for more than 10 days to make the connection stronger.

20 days is the shortest recommended time for the master plant dieta of more demanding plant teachers such as Chiric Sanango (Brunfelsia grandiflora), Chuchuhuasi (Maytenus laevis), Renaco (Renaco vine of love)

Long term dieta 30 or 40 days allows for dieting powerful trees – palos maestros – such as Noya Rao – (Tree of light), Ayahuma – (Tree of the soul)Ojé (Ficus insipida willd), Chullachaqui caspi (chullachaqui caspi).

Big trees require time. Don’t be deceived by offers of dieting powerful trees in some places during 10 days. It is not enough to make a proper connection.

We treat each person individually. It is best to contact us with further questions about this program, so we may also see whether it is right for you.

Because of growing interest and requests we are getting, we had opened long term dieting option for people interested in learning upon shamanic path, apprenticing towards the vocation of a healer, working with entheogenic and other plants.
 
Dieting is what we specialize in anyway in recent years, so we will not be hiding here essential fact : the most intense and productive healing and learning is an internal process, and externally taught techniques are only complementary to this. There is no way around basic sequence of things - first you need to know yourself, heal yourself, and somewhere alongside the process you learn how to help others, through first hand understanding of the mechanism.
 
There are other challenges here, that people dieting for their own healing may not experience to such extent - for example how to differentiate what you may see as "calling" or vocation from self-delusion of ego, unwilling to face difficult reality and compensating this with urge to save others / the world. 
 
Another difference is that potential healer's dieta must be longer. This 40 days option that we propose here is a step up from our usual dietas, but we should not fool you - they do not make you a shaman yet. You will not receive any certificates upon graduation, any blessing which entitle you to start your own ceremonies. You may of course do so, as some people even do after their first retreat ever, and we will not stop you either. We will be honest with you at any step of this journey, and available for consultations later, to help you make decisions that are essentially yours. This dieta, if done with right intention and commitment, can be a great transformation for yourself, that may or may not lead to further learning, dieting, ultimately your own medicinal practice.
 
So to make it clear again - you learn mostly from the plants, with our guidance, but at your own pace, influenced by element of grace - whether plants will be kind or difficult.
 
You can diet large trees which are foundation of shamanism here. Just like they support the vine climbing upon them in the forest, so in you they will deliver strength and grounding, to balance visionary and flight inducing effect of the ayahuasca, to keep you grounded in this world, where your task lies.
 
Progress of your dieta will be monitored in ayahuasca ceremonies by a large crew of experienced practitioners and shamans. It is also in the ceremonies you will be able to practice icaros given to you by plants you are dieting, just like all shamans learn here.
 
At least once during that period you will participate and learn how to prepare your own ayahausca brew, how to infuse it with intention, to concentrate, to focus.
 
 
 

Do not hesitate to contact us when you are interested in dates other than listed, your issue is more complicated and requiring longer treatment, or you simply want to go deeper and diet for longer period of time. We will work out something together.

We set our price very moderately, to enable access for people with limited budget. At the same time we pay same kind of money to the healer she would get working in big fancy centers. This is our effort to revive traditional Shipibo ways of learning and create intimate experience for you. The modest profit goes for people assisting you in the dieta process and development of the place, as well as protecting the forest disappearing quickly near the towns of Amazon. We are not wasting money for luxuries, the whole point is to be immersed in simplicity of nature.
