  • Description


    We are a family operated non profit and plant medicine healing centre in the Amazon jungle, 1 hour away from Iquitos. We live off grid, & have solar power, a variety of animals, gardens, a spring fed pool, & are only 2 km from a small town. We offer plant medicine retreats part of the year, & offer other healing modalities as well. We use permaculture techniques, & the staff are our friends and jungle family. We also have a 3 year old, whom we aspire to homeschool and create an outdoor play area.
    Plant and environmental education and helping the local community with support for single mothers and children has been our focus. Long term land conservation efforts is also our goal.
    Everyone who works with us does not have 1 role, as we are multifaceted beings. We do work with Ayahuasca and offer community ceremonies. This town is plentiful with a variety of knowledge from local curanderos, who we also work with. From offering guided jungle tours on land that supports conservation of that land and education on plant medicines to receiving people from all over the world, & to connecting with the local community and working to create a sustainable place as a model for living simply and in connection with the earth.
    We attract many healers and open people who wish to create an international community and a way of life that is in harmony with all beings.
