Our mission here at Flower of Life is to help each and every person that comes into our retreat leave with a better understanding of themselves and their sense of purpose in life. The mother plant Ayahuasca has helped guide many people on a journey into themselves while healing the mind, body and soul. We invite you to a life changing experience here at Flower of Life’s 8 Day Ayahuasca Retreat, to heal yourself from the inside out and help you gain control of the person you want to become, the best version of yourself. There will be 4 Ayahuasca ceremonies in our retreat, including, floral baths, steam baths, daily plant remedies and meditation.
Our Ayahuasca is brewed only with Ayahuasca vine and Chacruna leaf. We are proud to be one of the few completely female owned and managed Ayahuasca centers and try to tap into the feminine energy of Mother Ayahuasca, as a strong feminine is needed to have a strong inner masculine, for both of the sexes. We prefer and aim to work with only female Ayahuasceros in ceremony and our lead Shipiba maestra Juanita and maestra Vilma.
Flower of Life is located directly on the river and runs out in Lakshmi.Ecolodge and Holistic Spa. Many find that being close to the water when working with Ayahuasca has a profound healing effect. The Lodge was built in the style of the Inca temples and many maestras who come through believe that the land once housed an Inca temple based on the pyramid landscape and the presence of the spirits they feel. While drinking in a more rustic setting with large groups can be profound, at Flower of Life we try to use light and beauty to help heal, so we provide spacious cottages with private showers and bathrooms for those working with the medicine, as well as electricity at night and limit our groups to a maximum of 8 people. Working with Ayahuasca might be one of the most intense processes you’ll ever go through, so we’ve worked to build a truly comfortable (and slightly luxurious) space to live in during your retreat to make the process as beautiful as possible.
We prefer to work in the more traditional way for the Shipibo and have smaller groups in retreat so that everyone can receive truly individualized work and personal attention..
Our shamans have trained and practiced for decades, are a wealth of information and are happy to give you feedback at the end of your retreat. Along with our Shipiba maestras, we also work with a Kokama tabaquero and curandero (native healer) outside of ceremony who will provide plant remedies if he feels you need extra help and do healing work for you with the master plant mapacho (tobacco).
While you will have plenty of down time for relaxation and introspection, since we are located in such a scenic and untouched part of the Amazon, we frequently do boat rides to swim with the pink dolphins, enjoy bird watching, and take jungle walks to explore the Amazon. Don’t be shocked if you spot sloths hanging from the trees or come across armadillos and nocturnal monkeys on the way back to your cottage.
We are in a preserved area of the Amazon called Pacaya Samiria and unlike centers where you have to do long walks into the grounds, which requires large amounts of deforestation, we are in the virgin Amazon and prefer to keep the area around the lodge in it’s natural state, so you will also have plenty of opportunities to take in the mystical world that is the Amazon rainforest. We also offer yin yoga and meditation the night of all ceremonies, as well as creativity classes like singing, writing and open art.
Retreats are the 18th every month.
Shared accommodation- $1,300 (No more than 4 people to the dorm. Upon availability)

We look forward to meeting you soon!!
