Brenna’s Light is the first donation based Ayahuasca Healing Center in Iquitos, Peru. We offer 6 day retreats Monday – Saturday. We have two incredibly gifted Shamans who are brothers working at our lodge Jairo & Antenor Llerena . They are the sons of the late famous healer Don Julio Llerena. They both studied under their father and are some of the best healers in the Iquitos Area. We operate completely donation based, meaning on the final day of your stay you will leave a donation with us. Some will be able to leave more and some will be able to leave less, we only ask you leave an honest donation so we can continue to help people from all walks of life.
The lodge is a one hour boat ride down stream from Iquitos, on the banks of the Amazon river. We have a beautiful space surrounded by nature. You will be in incredibly safe and caring hands while you stay with us and enter into a transformative state of healing. For more information please check out our website, or email us.
A place of healing. I am 50 years old. I have had many blessings in my life, but I have lived through much tragedy. I ended up in the Amazon Jungle after watching our son grieve the loss of the love of his life. When your children are hurting you will do anything you can to take their pain away. Our son was looking for healing. He was certain Ayahuasca was the answer. He asked me to go with him on his journey to Peru. I was scared and unsure, but he so believed in the healing powers of Ayahuasca, that I went. I believed in him and he believed in the medicine. I completed 3 ceremonies with Jairo and Antenor, the Shaman at Brenna’s Light. I can tell you it was the most profound spiritual journey I have been on. It was truly a gift given to me out of tragedy. Because I was able to trust our son, I was able to find the medicine. I want to bring my husband and other children back in order to experience the same healing I did. The medicine took me through chapters of my life. I connected with nature. I saw my spirit animal, the elephant. I felt. I cried. I loved. I forgave. I was shown a deeper understanding of events that took place in my life. I experienced much happiness and joy too. At times it was really hard work. It showed me experiences in my life I had buried. It helped me understand why certain people were put in my path. It allowed me to learn more about the person I am, my good traits as well as my flaws. The Shaman, Jairo and Antenor have beautiful voices. They were so connected with my healing. The ekiros they sang were in true alignment with what I was experiencing, sadness, anger, guilt, bravery, love, joy. Brenna’s Light is in a beautiful location on the banks of the Amazon River about an hour boat ride from Iquitos. The lodge is very peaceful. The staff are very friendly. The rooms are clean. They provided all the meals. Estedia is a great cook. The ceremonies, food and stay at the lodge are all provided through donations. I really appreciate their desire to provide this gift to anyone searching for spiritual awareness and healing. I have told my friends about my experience and I plan to go back. If you are reading this, I recommend you experience Brenna’s Light. Be sure to Pay It Forward with a nice donation so others may have the experience.
Brenna’s Light was a beautiful experience. All barriers are broken down and you are set free. The jungle is no joke, you surrender to nature. Ayahuasca is a medicine you become one with and allow for all self control to let go!
Each ceremony was different. It either taught me something or allowed me to let go. Overall it was a life changing experience and I look forward to more ceremonies. If I had to sum up my experience, I would say that I felt like one night was 5 years of intense therapy.
I just did a week at Brenna’s Light and had 3 life changing ceremonies with Maestro Antenor. I can’t even put into words how healing this week was for me. I healed deep rooted traumas and let go of so much grief that has been hindering my life. I highly recommend this place to anybody looking for a retreat center in Iquitos. The craziest part is they are donation based, I didn’t pay anything until my last day when they ask for a donation. You donate whatever you can… For reference I donated 600 dollars, which compared to other retreats in Iquitos that are around 2,000 dollars shows this place is about the medicine. Also it was a very personal experience which was amazing as there were not many other guests, but It’s a new lodge so I’m sure later down the road they will be more full once more people know about them
