RAINFOREST HEALING CENTER
An Ayahuasca medicinal plant healing center and Permaculture farm. We welcome you on your personal journey into the magical Amazon Rainforest, just outside Iquitos, Peru. It is our first priority to offer a safe, private, and sacred space tucked away on 60-acres of jungle property home to over 110+ documented medicinal plants.
Rainforest Healing Center is accessed at KM 45.5 on the “highway” that connects Iquitos and Nauta in the Loreto province of Peru. From there you take a three kilometer hike over rolling hills along a dirt (sometimes muddy) path to arrive at our entrance.
To facilitate the safe, and deep healing of individuals through unconditional love so that present and younger generations have a loving planet to coexist in harmoniously.
Is to empower indigenous communities whose sacred healing traditions and native lands to be respected and revered by the Western world and to continue to build a community of seekers empowered to create a loving and authentic life for themselves and others
11 Day Retreat- Deeper Integration with the Vine
Our “Deeper Integration with the Vine” is a profound healing retreat where one will partake in 5 ceremonies and will be given ample time to process their journey with our highly trained facilitators and Shamans.
7 Day Retreat- Initiation to Shamanic Ayahuasca
Our ‘Initiation to Shamanistic Ayahuasca’ is a great way for one to start their healing journey that has never experienced any sacred medicinal plants. This would also be a great place to start for someone that has some apprehensions about engaging in shamanistic practices. The 7-day retreat will still be a strong for healing purposes with 3 powerful ceremonies.
Master Plant Isolation Diets
At Rainforest Healing Center, we have been offering Master Plant isolation diets (‘dietas’ in Spanish) since 2011, when we first opened our center. We currently offer three Master Plant diets: Ajo Sacha, Chiric Sanango, and Uchu Sanango. The decision to administer one of these diets is based on careful observation, discussion, and analysis by our Shaman and administrator. We take these diets very seriously and administer them within traditional rules and practice. Dieting a Master Plant is a spiritual rites of passage that is the next level of healing after having worked with Ayahuasca in group ceremonial settings.When the diet is initiated, one will go into isolation in their Tambo (jungle bungalow) for eight days with no contact with anyone except the Shaman administering the diet. The Mind, Body, and Spirit will go through an intense cleansing and reboot while opening new doors within the Self and the Spirit realm.
Kambo Practitioner Training
Kambo (also known as Sapo locally to Peruvians) is the venom from Phyllomedusa bicolor, the Amazonian giant monkey tree frog. This medicine is well known around Peru and Brazil as the “vaccine of the forest.” It is most easily understood as a detoxifying purgative, immune-boosting medicine, and a powerful treatment for chronic pain and drug dependency.
WARNING. This center has had a death. The stabbing of a facilitator. There are numerous accounts of abused staff at this center (sexual, emotional and physical) all over the internet, despite the attempts of owner Omar Gomez, real name William Feldman, to have these reviews flagged and removed. And now a staff member lost their life.
Along with the death and abuse, there are accounts of Omar spying on women bathing, as there is no privacy for the “showers”, so much as a bucket out in the open to use in the river, where anyone can see you. The compost toilets were similar, with nothing but see through nets instead of doors. Omar also “reaches out” to “attractive” past female guests under the guise of integration and then has sex with them.
Guest might have a good retreat and receive healing, but it shouldn’t be at the cost of the lives of the people working there. A guests wonderful ayahuasca retreat shouldn’t be because of a facilitator who’s desperately trying to hide that they’re being abused so they don’t ruin your retreat. There are so many other options for an ayahuasca centers. This center should be on no ones list.
