Our next retreat 2020

About the Retreat

Come and join us in the Amazon! From 6th until 21st of April(14-15 nights-the last evening is optional to just take a rest) will be our Plant Healing Retreat for the year 2020, limited to 12 participants. 

In this retreat the focus will be on the heart opening and on the voice. We will work with sacred master plants and as well with the plant Sinadenium Grantii. Ricardo Cheroke is an expert in opening the throat chakra in a very sensitive way during the ceremonies.

Especially if you wish to increase your self-love, your self-confidence and to lose fear of speaking out with love what you feel this retreat will be a fantastic opportunity for a profound transformation. But as well people who have an open throat chakra will benefit from the heart opening ceremonies and the universal wisdom and deep healing of the heart that the master plant Wachuma is providing. Kambo with its detoxifying effects is transformative and brings a deep cleansing of mind, body and soul.

Ricardo is working since his childhood days with sacred Master Plants from the Amazon. 

The abilities to grow on the own individual soul path in a new authentic-self will enhance deeply during this retreat.

This retreat will include the plant medicine Sindenium Grantii before every ceremony for all participants who feel a calling for it.

Of course, this is up to you and not mandatory, you can also choose classic Ayahuasca ceremonies without Sinadenium Grantii. 

This retreat will be an important opportunity to heal different kind of problems like traumata and all types of diseases, such as depression, cancer, confusion, diabetes, asthma, bone disease, heart disease and many other illnesses.  

Our central Maloca is completely new. Near the Maloca we have a very beautiful lake and private houses for families, couples or just for yourself.

Planta Divina

Our beautiful center is located in Peru, one hour by boat, from the capital of Amazonia, called Iquitos.  

If someone feels like having a day off from the group, he/she is as well free to do so.

Dietary Information & Medical Guideline

Dietary Information

One of the most important aspects of working with Ayahuasca is adhering to a time- honoured tradition of following a special diet in order to prepare not just the body, but also the mind and soul to incorporate the healing energy of Ayahuasca. 

This diet also shows the spirit of Ayahuasca your intention, and is a test of discipline and commitment. The central aspects of the diet are common to across the Peruvian Amazon. In the case of some of the food restrictions, there is also definitive scientific evidence that they are essential for safety. We advise you to begin the diet five days before the event and to continue the diet as long as it feel right for you. It is advised to continue a conscious diet to ensure the healing you have received and any possible plant remedies you are prescribed are given sufficient time to integrate.

Important Medical Precautions 

Ricardo has many years of experience in holding medicine events and knows the safe use of Ayahuasca in its traditional context. Please note that in certain cases working with Ayahuasca can carry health risks: if you have any heart, liver or kidney, or other serious medical problems, you should inform us at the first opportunity, and discuss the issues with a doctor who is aware of the issues Ayahuasca may raise. 

Our priority is your safety and well-being, within the events guiding you to personal healing and growth. We will provide the most secure environment to work with Ayahuasca we possibly can, and will ensure your welfare as best we can at all time. In return we ask that you behave responsibly and do not endanger yourself or others. 

It is necessary that you agree to disclose, in confidence, any known medical conditions and/or use of any medication, at the time of booking. By coming to the medicine event, you are declaring that you are in a physical and mental condition appropriate to the activities described in the dietary and medical guidelines, and agree that you participate at your own risk and that we cannot accept liability for any accident or injury. Certain drugs and medications have been found to not be compatible withAyahuasca. Iti s essential  to stop taking the following substances,and give your system sufficient time to remove them from the body, before you begin a workshop. Please consult your doctor if you are in any doubt: you certainly should not suddenly stop taking prescribed medications (including antidepressants) without consulting your doctor.

One of our intentions is to create a deep connection with the traditional medicines of the Amazon, to protect our medicines and to promote the plantings of new plants, because  we have medicines that are in danger of extinction. Many shamans use the plants and do not sow, so soon we can be without Ayahuasca and other medicines. Some of those can be lost by so much use. 

Planta Divina is a group of professionals that dedicates their lifetime to plant studies and we are offering exchanges. This means people can offer their work in exchange for ceremonies or diets. This offer fits for example for Yoga teachers and other spiritual integration worker that we want to include in our retreats as well. This people will receive accommodation and food as an exchange for no cost or a little cost, depending on the kind of work we agree on beforehand and on the performance. They can help to plant Ayahuasca and other medicines and learn more about the diets, also plant fruits and vegetables from the Amazon while creating a deep connection with Mother  Earth. 

IMPORTANT: Interested persons must inform us a few months before to be included in the program.
