Carr. Iquitos-Nauta, Iquitos, Peru
I have been working with the medicine for almost 4 years but it was until December 2017 when I decided to deepen my journey and head to the Amazon. I went to Caya Shobo for a 2 week retreat and I confidently say it has been the most profound experience I’ve had in my life. Being right at the jungle in communion with the plants and animals made my experience very special.
Everyone at Caya Shobo is incredible. The facilitators were very helpful to me before and during my stay at the center. They were friendly and very open to chat with. The staff is great too. All I have are words of appreciation for them. I felt very safe and taken care of, as all I had to worry about was in my own healing.
I really enjoyed having one on one sessions with the maestros and facilitators along with enough spare time to be on my own.
Each ceremony was incredible and transformational for me. I am in awe and really thankful with the maestros as they were very compassionate and caring with each of us. Their plant and spiritual knowledge amazed me each time.
I also had a profound experience with the plant diet that was suggested by the maestros. In combination with ayahuasca, the plant diet helped me in calming my mind, become more present and connect my soul and heart.
I’ve heard about other ayahuasca centers in the Amazon, but I definitely recommend Caya Shobo as the quality of the medicine, the knowledge and experience of the maestros, and the love and care of staff and facilitators is unique and worth living.
