Mai Niti is our family run traditional Shipibo healing center based in our homeland; the Amazon region of Peru (Pucallpa). We’ve been working as Maestros for many generations, and have a profound depth of ancestral wisdom and knowledge with respect to the plants and healing.
Our aim is to awaken you to your true potential by expanding your consciousness and healing your mind, body and spirit.
Mai Niti in English means Clarity of the Earth. By living in symbiosis with mother earth, she gifts us with the clarity and insight needed to do the work that we do. It fills our hearts with joy to see the people who come here leave healed, happy and free, with a deeper connection to themselves and awareness of their true nature. At Mai Niti, we work with sacred plants in a way that opens one up to receive the knowledge and healing power the plants have to give. Among these sacred medicines we work with is ayahuasca.
At our core, compassion is what guides us and empowers us to do the work that we do. Our doors are always open to all who come in need of healing.
This was the perfect center for my girlfriend and I. It’s an authentic experience with real Shaman that have created a safe and comfortable environment.
I went to the healing center for the 12 day retreat, finding out about it from a friend who had recommended it to me. I was searching for a Ayahuasca center that was still authentic, as it is very difficult to find one in Peru that is not based off money and tourism. I can truely say, Mai Niti was everything I could have hoped for, and more. If you are looking for a fully authentic, affordable, and personable retreat, look no further. Lucia, Leonardo, their family, and their friends, take you in like you are part of the family instantly. This place becomes your home, and you make friends that you will never forget here. Aside from the Ayahuasca ceremonies, they teach you about some of the thousands of other medicinal plants used for healing, and teach you the ways of their culture. The Shipibo tribe is one of the pioneers of the Ayahuasca healing tradition and Shamanism, and Leonardo is possibly one of the most experienced Shamans in Peru. You learn about the people and their culture, you learn about the plant knowledge passed through the generations, and most importantly you learn about yourself. If you feel the call, Mai Niti will answer and you will come out a different person!
Mai Niti is an incredible place with great energy! As soon as you get there you can feel it, because the energy itself, but also because of how well you are recieved and welcomed by everybody in the place. Quickly you feel among friends and family.
I’ve done ayausca before, but my experience in mai niti was different and much better. I guess because I felt very supported and safe there and I knew I was being taken care of all the time, so the ceremonies are much more beautiful when you dont get into it with fear or insecurity.
A nice thing is that each person has time with the shaman Lucilla, and also an introductory ceremony, so the she can see people’s needs and provide personal treatment and attention.
I had a great time there and would definitely recommend it.
