Ancestral Shipibo Healing Center
in the Peruvian Amazon
∼ ∼ ∼ ∼
Shipibo Rao is a plant-spirit healing center, led by Maestro Jose, that offers traditional healing and apprenticeships master plant dieta. Situated on forty five hectars of land surrounded by some old-growth rainforest, it is home to a rich multitude of medicinal plants, tress and wildlife, all of which we are dedicated to protecting.
We offer a profoundly deep healing work that combines ayahuasca ceremonies with a master plant or a tree spirit ally. Reaching the roots of trauma, imbalance, disorder and physical illness, this work initiates a journey of self-discovery, and transformation. Establishing a respectful bond with a plant spirit enable it to share its teachings and wisdom, ensuring its guidance, protection and equipping you with the tools to maintain alignment as you navigate your life journey.
From two weeks to a month, include the accompaniment of an experienced western facilitator, the daily care of our healers, a vomitive tea, flower baths, steam baths, additional plant treatments, guided communion with one master plant, a high number of ayahuasca ceremonies, individual consultations, traditional dieta food, integration and post dieta follow up.
From one to four months, these are powerful, highly effective, traditional dietas, only for people with a minimum of 14 days dieta experience who are willing to seriously take responsibility for their self-development and personal transformation. These will help resolve deeply rooted situations, on all levels, with one dieta.
The long healing and alignment dieta can lead to learning dietas, following a sincere calling to heal others. They can last from one month up to a year.
As ancestral high level healers traditionally worked on their patients through surrogates before working with them directly, our Maestros call your soul to the Amazon. They are then able to works on the imbalances and misalignments in your energetic matrix, and provides deep healing, without the need for you to drink ayahuasca or be physically present in ceremony. As many are unable to travel at this time and some are unable to make the journey to Peru even under “normal” travel circumstances, Maestro José and his team are now reviving this ancestral practice.
“The dieta at Shipibo Rao has been a very unique experience for me. It allowed me to merge into silence and peace to reach the higher concentration requested to connect with the plants. It was here that I found back my previous dietas and establish a proper relationship with them.”
“The impact to me has been profound, beautiful, and continues to unfold. I have been treated with kind, mindful, and gentle support mentally, physically, and spiritually.”
“Learning dietas come with other kind of challenges, I am profoundly grateful for all the preparation, guidance and care I received to enter that world.”
“That place and the maestros made the experience very meaningful for me, and you guys made it feel most comfortable that it could be. I am very grateful to all of you for making it an environment where everything is ok.”
Our healers have many years, sometimes a lifetime of experience working with plant, they are masters of their arts. These are the main situations that the dieta will help you with:
Maestro José is the driving force of our center. He is the son of the legendary Shipibo Onaya (master plant-spirit healer) Maestra Ynes Sànchez Gonzales and Maestro David Lopèz and a lineage of powerful and well-respected healers dating back hundreds of years.
Having apprenticed extensively first under his paternal grandfather, a Meraya (higest level Shipibo healer), then his uncle and his mother, since the age of seven years old, he received the wisdom of his ancestors, the Shipibo-Conibo cosmovision and sophisticated practices of Shipibo plant-spirit healing.
He honorably bridges the modern world to traditional Amazonian medicine and has been healing many hundreds of people locally in various rainforest communities and in westerners ayahuasca centers throughout South America.
Maestro José assumes his role of service with benevolence and tender strength. His work is offered with love and gratitude for the medicine and plants that guide him.
After a personal experience of intensive healing with indigenous people of South America, a group of veterans has been inspired to develop a healing program focused on the treatment of UK based war vets with PTSD and combat based traumas in collaboration with the best western naturopatic medicine and traditional indigenous healers of Peru and Columbia.
The Way of the Warriors healing program includes a one month ‘master plant’ healing dieta in Peru at Shipibo Rao.
The Temple is located in the Peruvian Amazon and has safely provided ayahuasca healing to over 10,000 participants since 2007. The Temple has become well known and independently recognized as one of the safest, most reputable, and most effective healing centers in the world.
Maestro Jose and his family are part of the Shipibo healers team leading ayahuasca retreats at the Temple.
