We are an Ecolodge and sacred space in the Bolivian Amazon. We maintain offices in the nearby town of Riberalta and oversee projects in our neighboring communities and onsite at our ecolodge. Found in the heart of the Aquicuana Reserve, our 80-hectare center is situated in an area of impressive biodiversity. We organize monthly plant medicine retreats and eco-touristic activities including guided hikes, canoe rides, bird observation and fishing.
Our center was sustainably constructed with locally-sourced, natural materials, while minimizing the removal of vegetation. Through our non-profit extensions, we helped secure the protection of over 20,000 hectares of Rainforest.
Our non-profit extension is registered in both Bolivia and The United States. Our projects focus community development programs including environmental sanitation efforts, reforestation projects, and the provision of scholarships.

We provide dedicated individuals the rare opportunity to live in one of the most biodiverse areas of the Amazon, while learning about plant medicines from traditional healers. All volunteers receive accommodation, clean-water, fully-stocked kitchen, transportation to lodge from Riberalta, and access to on-site activities including guided hikes, boat rides and ceremonies.
We offer work-exchange opportunities to a select number of applicants. Individuals with a sincere interest in making a positive and lasting contribution are invited to become part of our community. Generally speaking we do not receive volunteers for less than one month.
We invest in our volunteers and recognize their importance to our retreat-center and non-profit. In return, we expect a high level of dedication and personal responsibility. We expect proactive professionals able to make a sincere commitment.
