My stay at Nihue Rao was transformational. I strongly recommend the center with it’s supportive staff, pleasant accommodations and deep and powerful ceremonies. They provided a diet (dieta) that is plain but palatable in accordance with the Shipibo vegetalismo tradition. Four times a week I sat in ceremony attended by a staff of three and led by five Shipibo shamans who sang healing ícaros to each attendee individually as well as to the group as a whole.
It took me a few days to get used to the food and the routine. However in my 16 day stay I got the healing I came for: getting my life back by letting go of addictive behaviors and reconnecting to spirit.
