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 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 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.


We had a great time, wonderful people and a beautiful place. If you want to see magic happening, this is the place to go.

My experience with the team at Casa del Sol was amazing. I had read about ayahuasca, been told by people, most of whom had never done it but were sharing experiences told to them by people who had while a few had experienced it themselves, did not measure up to the incredibly positive time I had with Matt, Anya, Mimi and Maestro and the rest of the supporting people at the retreat. The other participants were supportive and added to my journey. I can’t say who should go nor would I want to except to say that should you go, then go with an open heart and mind, and it will be amazing!

The plant medicine offered here is legit, as are the practitioners who serve and work with it. The food was great and the lodgings comfortable. Many thanks to Maestro Don Alberto and the team of Casa del Maestro!

Working with Maestro don Alberto, Maestro Eliseo, Matt and Anya has been a life-changing experience. Their medicine is profoundly deep, brilliant, and, above all, safe. I have explored ayahuasca medicine circles for five years, I have seen the good and the bad, and the integrity that Maestro and his team demonstrates is beyond compare. It has been my honor to work with Uchu Sanango and Ayahuasca in their care, and I plan on continuing this work for all the healing and growth offers. I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you are thinking of dieting plants or working with ayahuasca, do yourself a favor and avoid other shamans or centers that might do more harm than good. Go to Casa Del Maestro.
