Transform and heal yourself deep in the Amazon Jungle with this retreat in Peru, set amongst the backdrop of the Shipibo-Conibo tribes who have used traditional ceremony 'Icaros' and the master plant teacher of ayahuasca as psychic tools and portholes to access the human soul. Every ceremony steps up on the previous one in an ever deeper dive into the soul, an ever higher flight into greatness, and fulfillment of your forgotten mythical potential and the power of your intention.
Special arrangements can be made for a private room, but this is by request only and for an additional charge per night. Please contact Sacred Mythic Journeys for more information. However, in order to maximize the experience for all retreat participants, Sacred Mythic Journeys recommends highly that everybody uses the carefully selected shared accommodations.
Sacred Mythic Journeys always use a selection of reputable and comfortable shared accommodations, as to maintain a family and creative team atmosphere throughout your experience. Individual lodgings and rooms will therefore usually be shared by no more than between two and four people at a time, with shared bathroom and shower facilities.
The Shipibo-Conibo of the Amazonian rainforest live in the 21st century while still keeping one foot in the past spanning back millennia. Many of their shamanic traditions are still practiced such as ayahuasca healing ceremonies. Iqaros (sacred chants) have inspired artistic tradition and decorative designs found in their clothing, pottery, tools, and textiles.
The Shipibo-Conibo hold the ayahuasca ceremony as art, so, although there are male Curanderos, it is the women that most often are chosen for the ancestral Icaros to be transmitted and they are the main performers at the ceremonies, transmitting through their magical ceremonial songs their nurturing feminine mother energy, their souls, and hearts.
Ayahuasca is known in the Amazon jungle as “la purga” (the purge) and is essentially a medicine that cleanses one on all levels - physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The process is one of healing and letting go of what no longer is helpful for your journey on this planet and the resulting clarity that allows you to see what the next step is ahead for you.
The energy of the medicine supports this process and helps one reconnect with one’s deepest truths and sense of purpose.
Ayahuasca is a very powerful medicine and when approached with respect and a pure intention, it is a most wonderful healer and teacher. The jungle is the perfect environment to drink the ayahuasca brew because you are close to where the plants live and therefore where there is the greatest level of support, nurturing, and absorption ability of all the plants and earth.
The jungle, even without the ceremony, is an ideal place to shed heavy energies the way the anaconda sheds its skin and to receive the fundamental healing properties of “nature’s pharmacy” on every level of your being.

Marc is the co-founder of Sacred Mythic Journeys and cosmic journey guide. After working and traveling in some very remote parts of the planet such as Tibet, Nepal, China, Tanzania, Thailand, Fiji, El Salvador, Venezuela, Honduras, and Brazil as a scuba diving instructor, coral reef conservation project expedition leader, and keen surfer, skydiver and snowboarder, Marc realized truly with much more clarity where his life had been leading him all this time and what it had been preparing him for.
