About this trip

What is Intensive Dieta?

During the Dieta the student will follow one or more Master Plant Dieta in Isolation and will mostly receive the visit of the teacher and facilitators. The Master Plant dieta or teacher plant diet is a unique opportunity to dive into the Shipibo lineage and study the tradition of connecting with the spirits of plant medicine during an Ayahuasca retreat in the Peruvian Jungle.

In the tradition, the dieta will assist the dietero/a (student) to establish a life-long relationship with the spirits dwelling in the plants or trees that play an important role in the Shamanic practice of working with Ayahuasca. Part of the 26-day Shamanic Initiation journey with the Master Plants, learning the tradition is facilitated through lectures, workshops, sharing, and periods of personal silence and self-reflection.  

While in Isolation on a private tambo (jungle hut)  the student will receive the meals at his/her accommodation and contact with other participants will be very limited.

Even before I went for the retreat, the warmth and comfort I felt while interacting Elio made me feel confident of my decision. The place and the family of Don Miguel are really welcoming. We were very well taken care of. Don Miguel's sessions were quite enlightening. Mama Juanita is a very giving, compassionate and a powerful Shaman. The place, the people, the ambiance is fantastic. Overall it was a great experience.

What a Magical Journey, from the start to the last minute everything was top notch! Every little detail was mindfully curated to deliver the most comfortable, pleasant experience while I was on the retreat doing inner work. Elio, maestra Juanita, Cindy and everyone on the premises is giving their 110% attention to details through room and food preparation, presentation, making sure the bedding is comfy, availability for emotional support and “holding your hand” and space in the time of need. Everything is done with a smile and love that is felt in the heart, because it comes from the heart. Highly recommend Aya Healing Center for anyone considering this experience, as you will be “babied” in a graceful empowering way to make sure you feel safe while you are on a journey!! Gracias Elio and familia for all that you do to serve others, your mission and to heal the world!

Aya Healing Retreats offers a well-organized process and a safe container for doing one’s healing and medicine work. I found Aya Healing Retreat to be more of a Healing Center, not just where one goes for a dieta. The land is beautiful & abundant, the Shipibo family and hired staff are incredibly caring & loving, the Maestros are powerful and giving, and the facilitators are compassionate, knowledgeable, and make themselves available to support each participant as needed. Facilitators made a genuine effort to get to know each participant and understand individual intentions for doing the dieta. On the first day, each participant in our group received a private individual session with Maestra Juana to share our intentions. Maestra Juana then recommended plant treatments, based on individual intentions, to be taken during our 10-day retreat. Maestro Don Miguel and his helpers prepared the (additional) plant medicines for treatments, as well as the dieta plant medicine, Noya Rao, with pure benevolence and generosity. The accommodations were luxury for the jungle! Individual tambos were spacious & clean. They included comfy full size beds with clean sheets, pillow, blanket, and mosquito netting, private baths & showers (some shared), scheduled sheet changes, and regular sweeping of tambo floors by staff. Overall, the energy created was one of a safe and loving space for participants to do our healing work. It was a beautiful and amazing experience, totally night and day from other places I’ve worked with. I’m looking forward to returning very soon to this special place to continue with my healing and medicine work.

This was even better than expected! Elio is an amazing facilitator and thought of pretty much everything. I felt very safe and supported. They were always available if you the need arose where you wanted to discuss anything that came up. I have done other dietas but was looking for more and this checked all the boxes plus many more. The land, accommodations, food and staff were nothing short of amazing. I highly recommend this retreat. I'm looking forward to diving deeper next trip. Muchas gracias Patricia
