My partner and I came to the Bolivian Amazon for healing and to receive insight about our direction in life. We wanted a retreat that honored both the land and the plant medicine in a sacred way and thanks to Pisatahua, we got just that and more. We attended a 10 day retreat which included 4 Ayahuasca ceremonies and a tobacco ceremony. A second tobacco ceremony was offered to me as I was in need of additional cleansing.
The healer (Nino) is native to the Bolivian jungle and had that deep connection with the plant medicine and the natural world. He knew just how much medicine to serve, he channeled the medicine through powerful sacred song (icaros) and had a genuine care for people.
The venue employs local people in the community and directly supports the preservation of local natural resources. Our cabin had a nice view of the lake and was very private. The accommodations and food quality were well worth the cost and the staff tended to our needs with care. They held a wonderful space for our group to come together and we are very happy with our decision to choose Pisatahua.
Erik, Sasha and Chaca made sure we had transportation from the airport, to our hotel in town and to the retreat center. They even surprised us at the end of the retreat with a trip to go swimming at a beautiful local lake. If you want an authentic experience with staff and healers who are committed to supporting your journey with the plant medicine, you’ve found it.
