About the Plant Dieta:

This program includes an optional plant dieta with a series of medicinal trees as directed by Maestro Don Alberto. Dietas often take participants much deeper than medicine 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. Only elect this option if you are committed to the dieta!


The dieta lasts for eight days, consisting of four dieta infusions prepared onsite. The 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 is a family-run plant medicine center located outside of Genaro Herrera, Peru. It is owned and operated by Maestro Don Alberto Torres Davila and three generations of his extended family. Situated 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.

This was my first experience with ayahuasca and after considering many different retreat centers I'm so happy that I chose to go with Casa Del Maestro. It was perfect in so many ways and gave me the experience I needed. Safety and trust were the most important factors I was looking for and can't speak more highly for how Matt, Anna, and the rest of the team created the ideal environment for me to feel so comfortable that I could get everything I needed from the experience. They were so caring and always went beyond to make sure everyone was getting what they needed. The location was beautiful and so peaceful. I was eager to be immersed in the Amazon jungle so that I could connect more directly with ayahuasca, and I loved how Casa Del Maestro was the perfect balance where the jungle was accessible with just a few minutes walk, but the main camp area was so calm and open that have us the space we needed to be relaxed. Matt and Anna were the real heroes for my experience. I felt what truly made this experience so unique and valuable to me was beyond my experience with ayahuasca but the exposure and understanding of this different culture & perspective of the world that I gained. And this was all due to the countless casual conversations I was able to have with Matt & Anna which opened up my eyes to this whole new world and I really don't think I would have been able to get it anywhere else. Finally, everything about the entire retreat was so authentic that I think made the entire experience so much stronger. The shaman Maestro Alberto is the most genuine, centered man who truly brings all the ceremonies together and has been working with the medicine for several decades all handed down through his past generations. And it was so meaningful to live right alongside him in the remote village we were staying at where we got to see the normal life he was living when not serving as a shaman as well as spending time with his entire family. Cannot recommend working with this team and retreat center more. Don't hesitate to join an incoming retreat here. Truly the best.

Hard to put in words, what this healing experience has been like. Came as a man with a part of myself broken and left centered, full of confidence and much happier than before. From the first day felt extremely safe and welcome by Maestro and his family, Matt and Anna, who truly take care for you and help you through everything even in the hardest time. Also love the sharing of knowledge, the level of integrity and love for the medicine, which leads me to the recommendation, that this is the place to go. Will return in the future for sure. Thank you ❤❤❤

To say I had a great time, would be a disservice to the Casa Del Maestro. The Maestro and his family were so welcoming, I felt right at home. Everyone went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. The accommodations were clean and stayed that way the whole visit. I left feeling more alive than when I arrived, my family and friends commented on it as well. The Casa changed me as a person for the better, and though the work continues, I look forward to coming back and working with the Maestro again.

It was a profoundly healing experience, if at times overwhelming and scary, but well worth it. The Maestros and facilitators were so kind, obviously experienced, and well-suited to their jobs. I truly am thankful to Maestro Alberto and his wonderful team. I encourage anyone who is looking for a powerful and protected space to experience the plant medicines to come here.

This place and the people were equally magical. Ayahuasca isn't always the most pleasant medicine, and yet on the last day I was really sad to leave. Casa del Maestro provides such a great experience from beginning to end, it's sometimes hard to believe it's real.
