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.

We dieted Noya Rao and it was my first time doing a dieta. I’m not going to lie, I was skeptical. Part of me insisted that I have to travel all the way to Peru to do it “right,” but with all the travel difficulties of the corona time, I gave up and did it from home. It was incredible. The journey was so powerful and transforming. In 10 days, I did as much work as I did in 30 days in Peru. Elio, Adelina, Don Miguel were so supportive and guided us with so much love and compassion. I learned my first Icaro and sang my heart out to Noya Rao. I’d do again for sure either online or at their center in Peru. I highly recommend. E.

The online version of this dieta I understand is new, but it needs more work. Not comfortable with the amount of recording that happened, and some aspects of looseness in the facilitation. There has been a week+ of radio silence post retreat also, when we're supposed to be supported with one on one integration sessions. There was considerable emphasis on the importance of this part of the process, but no follow through.

Another wonderful opportunity to experience and work with Aya Healing Retreats. Going in-depth with Icaros and Shipibo language brings a whole new level of appreciation and understanding of the beautiful knowledge that has been passed down from generation to generation. Looking forward to the upcoming months to find my voice!

What an amazing experience! I can try to put into words how beautiful this Dieta was and currently is but don't feel these words will do it justice. Elio, Adelina, and Don Miguel along with the rest of the team at Aya Healing Retreats are all doing wonderful things even in these times of chaos and uncertainty. I've done other dietas before and was curious how this one would turn out being that it is remote and done online rather than in person and in a jungle setting. The care and attention to detail while creating a level of understanding around the Shipibo traditions built a foundation and safe container to open up and receive guidance from the spirit of Noya Rao. I look forward to supporting this organization through more online events as well as being able to visit in person someday soon!!!

The online NoyaRao Dieta was a beautiful opportunity to connect to a divine plant with the help and guidance from wonderful people who are absolutely dedicated to their mission. Elio, Adelina and Don Miguel did a wonderful job in providing a safe, calm and very compassionate space for me (us) to live this experience. I deeply trust them and would love to diet with them again.
