Terramaya is a safe and loving place for inner exploration, self discovery and healing.
We at Terramaya are seekers of true connection and unity within our natural self. We share what we have: our music, our experience, our growth, our learnings and our medicine.
Terramaya is an isolated, off-grid retreat centre nestled within the mountains and rainforest of Brazil. The location offers an awe-inspiring opportunity to commune with wild, pristine nature and is blessed with natural springs and waterfalls.
The spiritual retreats are facilitated by:
Norberto, the one that guides the ceremonies and individual sessions, grew up learning to work with plants. He is a certified psychotherapist in Bioenergetic Analysis, certified in Breath work and in guiding meditation. He has facilitated the master plant Ayahuasca for thousands of people.
Milli is a professional singer and multi instrumentalist. She has, for the past 15 years, specialised her work in developing music as a tool for healing and transformation.
Milli also facilitates Women’s groups and Music workshops.
All helpers and assistants are very experienced in working with the medicine.

As someone who lived and drank ayahuasca with many shamans and healers in Brazil, Peru and in Europe, I am quite often asked if I can recommend a place to drink the medicine. Norberto, the facilitator at Terramaya, is the only one I can comfortably suggest to someone and be absolutely fine with the responsibility in doing so.
He is working with the medicine for over 35 years so his knowledge and talent to navigate that energetic space is exquisite. At the same time, a humble person, still learning and sharing his lessons.
Together with Milli, an extremely talented musician and angelic soul, they create a sacred ceremonial space where I can feel totally safe and accept all that is offered by the medicine and the land.
Speaking of the land, what an amazing spot in nature. Very isolated, many waterfalls and with the added bonus of almost no mosquitos. So many rocks and places to sit, enjoy, disconnect from my daily life, and simply be. I love the Terramaya water, I can feel the healing provided by the pure air and water and all elements.
The accommodations are very comfortable, surprisingly so, given the isolation of the place. Wooden huts with cozy beds and toilets, even bathtubs!
And let’s not forget the medicine served, prepared with ayahuasca vine harvested deep in the amazon. Not planted or cultivated but old virgin vine grown in the depths of the Amazon without human contact. Resulting in by far the cleanest and deepest exploration of myself. So much light and wisdom, a powerful medicine containing the raw power of nature.
I am deeply grateful to Norberto and Milli, the first time I went to Terramaya was the turning point in my spiritual and personal development, and since then I returned many times. So many things to be grateful about, the sense of community, the welcoming, the acceptance, the connections, and the music … oh the music, not hard to close my eyes now, even years after my first experience, and remember the depth I felt when I first heard Milli’s music.
Thank you for changing so many lives!!!
A place in the lush, pristine rainforest with comfortable cabins and a temple next to a stream with a little waterfall.
Does it get any better?
Yes, it does!
The Ayahuasca served is of the highest quality and Norberto, the shaman / facilitator brings in the best of both worlds: decades of experience with the medicine and a solid understanding of human psychology. He also speaks fluent English and very good German. And last not least, he comes from the heart!
If you want to go to a center where profound change can happen in a safe and loving environment, then Terramaya is the place.
It is never too late to find oneself, I’ve heard that many times before. Who would say though, I would have to go all the way to Brazil in order to find peace of mind and love of heart. Well, I know now that I had it all along but I just couldn’t see it. Thanks to the enduring love of Milli and Norberto and the powerful medicine!
Neither three of them would give up on me and sure enough my heart has opened at 74.
There are so may beautiful things about this place. I always refer to Terra Maya as ‘The Land’. The place in itself has healing proprieties, and then the nature is pure magic, the medicine is home made and the people that facilitates the work are so in touch with their humanity and Spirit.
Ive found this place at a turn point in my life where is was crucial to learn to create my own safety.. And to learn to connect with my own core. And Norberto was and still is such an example in doing it. So much gratitude!
I was coming to Terramaya many times and each time i was leaving the place more lighter and wiser. I was participating in voluntier programs, also atending workshops. I would recomend this place for those who want to meet themselfs in what ever they are doing, in the simple act like a diging the pond or working in the garden (like voluntier) or in ceremony space (like a spiritual seeker). In suroundings of the nature and simplicity of the place you can see your own projections and exspectations very well and in the silence of the mountains very easy to integrate spiritual understandings. So those things was happening to me and i came to understending that simple is fantastic, just to swim in the river, to play with the dog, to meet a frog its fantastic and real life. By the way if to speak about practical things, there is the normal bath and normal toilet in the hut, dont need to go at nigth in the forest, just if you wish so . About aya ceremonies dificult to share the exsperience, need to experience-no other way. In this place healing happens. Who ever i met there they are my family and part of my love now. Recomend.

This is Terramaya, along with a beautiful temple, medicine of the highest quality, and the best facilitator I ever had the pleasure to sit with. During my years of walking the Medicine Path, I have not yet found anything that comes close in comparison. If you are seeking accelerated transformation in a safe space, then come to a retreat in the Atlantic Rainforest of Brazil, a relatively short journey from Rio de Janeiro.
