Selva Madre 10 Day Ayahuasca Retreat
Located in the middle of the Amazonian rainforest, Selva Madre is one of the most renowned and traditional places for an Ayahuasca retreat.
Honoring our principles, our brew is made only by Shamans fasting during the cooking process. We use only pure, fresh Ayahuasca vines and Chacruna leaves, nothing more is added.
Drinking the sacred medicine allows you to expand your consciousness, encounter your REAL self and heal your Karma. This powerful medicine creates a path for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual transformation and healing.
Every ceremony is followed by a personal consultation and debriefing with Don Luis. Plant and mud baths, sauna therapy, and a variety of natural remedies can be recommended to you following his evaluation and diagnosis.
4 Ayahuasca Ceremonies
During your retreat you will be staying in a private double traditional Amazonian house. They are very comfortable and spacious protected by mosquito netting. Each room contains a private bathroom and shower.
4 Ceremonies per retreat
Our safety protocols are important in order to offer the best experience. Unlike other centers that propose five ceremonies or more per week, we feel four ceremonies is the perfect amount per ten day retreat. Ceremonies are held every other day with a day of rest, processing, and consultation in between. Ayahuasca demands 48 hours to be entirely processed by the body and for its teachings to be assimilated. Doing more ceremonies in a short time is definitely not recommended. Our 10 days retreat includes 4 ceremonies.
Taking Ayahuasca is a permanently transforming process on all levels of your being physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It reveals your higher inner self and facilitates deep healing. At the beginning of the ceremony the Shaman sings Icaros that are sacred songs in order to tune healing frequencies from nature. Every participant comes in front of the Shaman for a personal healing.
The Ayahuasca diet is a very important part of the retreat experience. Preparing the physical body for integration of the sacred plant medicine is a vital and necessary part of the healing process. During your retreat you will be provided a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as rice, oats, legumes, pasta, fish, eggs, and chicken. Three meals a day will be served according to schedule. Ayahuasca ceremony nights will include only breakfast and lunch during the day. We accommodate vegan/vegetarian diets as well as any food allergies.
