Auténticos Retiros de Ayahuasca en Perú

Auténticos Retiros de Ayahuasca en Perú

Centro de Retiro de Medicina Tradicional de Plantas y Ayahuasca

Welcome to Mai Niti, we are a family-run ayahuasca and plant medicine healing center based in San Francisco, a native Shipibo community in the Amazon Jungle region of Peru. Ayahuasca and other plant medicines have their origins in these lands, as do Maestros Leonardo and Lucila. The family has been working as curanderos (healers) for many generations and has a profound depth of ancestral wisdom and knowledge with respect to the plants and healing. Their aim is to awaken you to your true potential by expanding your consciousness and healing your mind, body, and spirit.

Retreats At Mai Niti

Retreats at Mai Niti center are a little different to other Ayahuasca Retreats / centers – here, you’re invited to undergo a personalised process tailored specifically to the issues that you’re facing in life.

The owners of the center, Maestro Leonardo and his daughter Maestra Lucila, treat guests with a range of plant medicines – not just Ayahuasca.

On your first ceremony, the shamans will drink Ayahuasca to connect with you energetically – they use this ceremony to decide which plants they’ll give you and what type of process you’ll have in the coming weeks.

At some point, they’ll call you up to sit in front of them so that they can sing you an icaro directly to you to both help you heal and for them to understand what’s going on for you (an Icaro is an ancient healing song used in Shipibo shamanism to heal guests).

Following this ceremony, they’ll create a personalised plan involving a combination of plant baths, energy work, plant medicines and remedies, plant saunas and plant purgitives, as well as Ayahuasca and Wachuma to help you heal past the issues you face.

During your stay, you’ll periodically connect with the shamans in ceremony, where both you and they will work on your issues, and where they’ll also be able to check in with you and see how your process is going (and adjust it accordingly).

Guests stay anywhere from 1 week to multiple months at the center to work on various issues, be them psychological, physical or spiritual.

Los maestros

En el Perú, el término comúnmente usado para los chamanes es maestro, y los curanderos se conocen comúnmente como curanderos.

Las ceremonias en Mai Niti se llevan a cabo bajo la guía de poderosos sanadores masculinos y femeninos de la tribu Shipibo: el maestro Leonardo y la Maestra Lucila.

Tanto conocidos como respetados como curanderos expertos en su comunidad Shipibo de San Francisco, los dos ahora trabajan juntos para llevar su curación al mundo en general.

Compassion is the force that drives them to do the work that they do, Leonardo and Lucila are dedicated entirely to the path of Curanderismo.

Maestro Leonardo

Leonardo has been working with the plants since the age of 12. Now, aged 85, he has over 70 years of experience with plant medicine and ayahuasca.

Maestra Lucila

After rigorous training from Leonardo, strict dietas, and many years in isolation, Lucila has followed in her father’s footsteps to become a Maestra.

El centro

When you step into Mai Niti healing center, you will be met with the love and compassion that are at the core of the Curanderos work. You will quickly become part of the family, and the curanderos are truly here for you every step of the way in your healing journey.

Mai Niti healing center is owned and run entirely by the Curanderos and their family. For this reason, they have the freedom to run the retreats in the way they feel is right, in order to bring the deepest level of healing and care to all who come.

The curanderos and their family will be with you every step of the way to ensure that you have a truly transformative healing experience and that you find what you are seeking. Living with them on their land is a truly eye-opening experience in which you will not only have the opportunity to heal and grow but experience life in symbiosis with nature, the way the Shipibo do.

Retiros de Ayahuasca y Dietas Vegetales

Maloka for holding ayahuasca ceremonies

Mai Niti ofrece auténtico retiros de ayahuasca que están cuidadosamente diseñados para facilitar la curación profunda y la transformación de la manera más segura y efectiva posible. Los retiros se llevan a cabo bajo la guía de sanadores Shipibo poderosos y hábiles, tanto hombres como mujeres, de la forma en que sus antepasados han trabajado durante miles de años. En el centro, los curanderos y la familia ponen mucho cuidado en mantener un ambiente compasivo y de apoyo en todo momento. Esto asegura que todos los participantes sean atendidos y guiados a través de sus viajes de curación.

We find that small groups allow for a more impactful and personal healing experience – as such, all ceremonies have an average of 10 and a maximum of 15 guests in attendance.

The Curanderos work closely with each individual guest and develop a unique treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs.

During your first ceremony with us, you will drink only a small cup of ayahuasca. In this ceremony, the curanderos will drink ayahuasca for you in order to assess you energetically and determine which plants you will need in the following days, and how much ayahuasca you will need for your next ceremony. This allows guests to safely ease into the medicine, instead of being thrown in at the deep end.
