About the Plant Dieta:

This program includes a plant medicine dieta with Sanango or Tobacco. Dietas often take participants much deeper than ayahuasca ceremonies alone. The process requires a commitment on behalf of the participant that includes a series of behavioral restrictions that one is required to follow before, during and after the dieta. Please make sure you are committed to the entire process!

The dieta lasts for eight days, consisting of 3 ceremonies with your elected plant: Sanango or Tobacco. Ceremonies are held at 3 a.m., with the effects of the medicines lasting through the next day. On the eighth day the dieta is "cut" with salt and normal food is reintroduced into the body. This will also begin a series of ayahuasca ceremonies over the following three nights.

Food for the dieta follows the traditional guidelines: plain, bland food free of any salt, spices or sauces. You can expect mild river fish, plain chicken, yucca, cucumbers, hard boiled eggs and white rice.

Dieta participants are also to refrain from physical contact with others, and there will be limited participation in retreat activities. Dieters are required to remain free of sexual activity during the dieta and for 30 days afterwards, as well as 30 days without the use of any drugs or alcohol, including other plant medicines.

Casa del Maestro

Casa del Maestro is a family-run plant medicine center located outside of Jenaro Herrera, Peru. It is owned and operated by Maestro Don Alberto Torres Davila and three generations of his extended family. Situated about 4 km outside the village on private land, Casa del Maestro represents a return to the origin of Don Alberto's lineage and the roots of his plant medicine tradition.


Tranquilo center serving traditional medicine and teaching the wisdom of the Jungle. I had an amazing and transformational experience. Perfect experience for much needed momentum in the forward direction. Thank you Maestro Alberto, Maestro Eliseo, Matt and the rest of the wonderful staff at Casa Del Maestro. For the comfy bed, delicious food, and the strong Ayahuasca. Hope to see you all Again soon.
