About this trip

Online Master Plant Dieta

In a time of social distance and travel restrictions, we urge the need to support individuals who want to explore the Shipibo tradition by dieting a Master Plant or Teacher Plant and Tree from home.

The vision of this Online Bobinsana Dieta is to offer students the opportunity to follow a Shamanic Dieta from the safety of their home supervised by our Shipibo Maestra Juana.

Home Retreat

Shipibo Curandero or Shamans traditionally used fasting, a diet of master plants and seclusion from others to seek guidance from the plant spirits and obtain the vital knowledge needed to heal others.

Before students can communicate with plant teachers, they must undergo a rigorous process of mental, physical, and spiritual purification. The Dieta usually accompanied by abstinence from sex, pork, red meat, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, and processed food. Abstaining from any substance or activity that might cloud the mind is essential for the plants and trees dieta to promote physical healing and spiritual transformation.

Therefore we invite the students to correctly set the container for the dieta and create a safe home retreat for the duration of the dieta. It is possible to continue to work and attend to family matters. However, it is highly recommended to avoid social interactions.

SoulSong Revival

Do you have a particular obstacle or experience that you associate with your vocal freedom? Whether you already love to sing or you feel your voice is blossoming, there is always an opportunity to delve deeper into understanding your relationship with your voice even more fully. In indigenous tribes an unwell member of the community was asked, “When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing” We were born to sing and dance. This is our birthright.

We will practice self-healing techniques, surrender, forgiveness, and self-love that guides you back to your heart and the remembrance of the power of your unique soul essence. Your SoulSong. 

Bobinsana is a deep catalyst for healing grief and supporting us with healing layers that have been protecting our hearts. Through the dieta our dream time and connection with our guides become much more prominent.


Who is the Bobinsana Remote Dieta for?

The Remote Bobinsana Dieta is for individuals that have studied under Maestra Juana lineage or have had experienced dieting Bobinsana or other Master Plants under the Shipibo tradition.

Online Offers:

Day 1: Bobinsana tea preparation

You will have the unique chance to prepare your tea from the Bobinsana in your own home. You will be guided by a recorded video to make the Bobinsana tea, and you will receive directions for how to prepare yourself and your space for the Dieta. You may also begin by cleaning your home, decluttering, and giving away things that no longer serve your highest potential. You’ll feel so thankful for a welcoming home environment.

Day 2: Intention Setting and Opening Ceremony

The group will meet in Zoom for the first session and the Opening Ceremony. Everyone will have an opportunity to share their intentions and get to know the unique group of souls that have come from around the world to pray together. Maestra Juana will sing her Icaros to each of the participants. This is the official beginning of the Bobinsana Dieta.

Day 3: Fasting and Sacred Silence

Fasting is an essential component of the Master Plant Teachers. Maestra Juana will invite the group to fast for 12 or 24 hours after drinking the first cup of Bobinsana tea. After the 12/24 hours fast, the participants will be allowed to eat a simple meal containing no oil or salt, or any of the foods they have committed to abstaining from for the duration of their dieta.

Day 4: SoulSong Revival Ceremony

Do you have a particular obstacle or experience that you associate with your vocal freedom? Whether you already love to sing or you feel your voice is blossoming, there is always an opportunity to delve deeper into understanding your relationship with your voice even more fully. In indigenous tribes an unwell member of the community was asked, “When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing” We were born to sing and dance. This is our birthright.

In this ceremony, you’ll be guided through meditation and breathwork, into a space of self-inquiry and shamanic purification to support your own self-healing journey. You’ll practice self-healing techniques, surrender, forgiveness, and self-love that guides you back to your heart and the remembrance of the power of your unique soul essence. Your soul song. 

Bobinsana is a deep catalyst for healing grief and supporting us with healing layers that have been protecting our hearts. Through the dieta our dream time and connection with our guides become much more prominent. This is a deep journey and having space for integration, reflection, and journaling afterward is highly recommended.

Day 5: Bobinsana Icaro & Teachings with Maestra Juana

You’re invited to visit our beloved master teacher, Bobinsaana,  growing in the Amazon River. Following a meditation at the river with Maestra Juanita, she will teach us Shipibo Icaros for Bobinsana and offer a blessing of gratitude for the wisdom of this sacred plant. This is a  precious opportunity to connect with the sacred river and elements that support your birthright of being able to surrender and go with the flow of life.

Day 6: Vocal Warm-Ups and Techniques to support Vocal Expansion

Allow all of your senses to be nourished and healed by a sound healing journey with beloved Amma Sophia Rose, the creator of Sonic Bowl Alchemy. Sirenita is a nickname given to Bobinsana, as she is the little mermaid of the river. In this journey, you’ll be guided through a myriad of tones and frequencies deeper into the ocean of Love. These crystal bowls are Andarian crystals, carrying ancient codes from Lemuria and beyond to attune our frequencies with high vibrations. 

Day 7: Sound Healing Journey 

Allow all of your senses to be nourished and healed by a sound healing journey with beloved Amma Sophia Rose, the creator of Sonic Bowl Alchemy. Sirenita is a nickname given to Bobinsana, as she is the little mermaid of the river. In this journey, you’ll be guided through a myriad of tones and frequencies deeper into the ocean of Love. These crystal bowls are Andarian crystals, carrying ancient codes from Lemuria and beyond to attune our frequencies with high vibrations. 

Day 8: Heart Healing Song Circle

Your voice serves as a vehicle for your own transformation. Through breathwork, movement, sounding practices, forgiveness, and singing, you’ll unlock the power of your voice and connect with the song of your soul.
This is a nourishing and uplifting workshop. This practice is a practice of self-care—it is self-love in action. To sing your SoulSong is a radical act of self-love. You are worthy of it.

This circle is open to anyone in the group that wishes to share a song, prayer, or offering inspired by our dieta and sacred journey. All it often takes is sharing for the first time to break the ice and then it feels easier to sing in front of others. 

Day 9: Integration & Grounding

It is said that 99% of our work with plant medicines is with our integration. Together, we’ll learn and share practices that support integrating our everyday life with the teachings and wisdom we’ve received from Bobinsana so that we may weave gracefully as our dieta comes to a close. We’ll take turns speaking from our hearts, sharing the truth of our experience during the Dieta. You will walk away from this session feeling inspired to carry your new wisdom, insights, and courage into your daily life and relationships with others. 

Day 10: Closing Dieta Arkana Ceremony

After one has fulfilled the terms set out of the Master Plant Dieta, a closing ceremony will be conducted by Maestra Juana, which signals the end of the fast and celebrates the students’ dedication and determination. The closing usually takes the form of chanting of a special Arkana, a protective Icaro by Maestra Juana.

Day 11: Sharing Circle

• The Sharing Circle is similar to the sharing Circle we hold after the ceremony; it will be an opportunity to speak from the hearts without interruption. A beautiful way to seal our container together. 

Post-Dieta Private Integration Session

Following your Bobinsana Dieta, you will receive one individual support session with our team. These sessions will offer you the opportunity to discuss your Dieta experience and work through tangible solutions to any real-world problems you are facing that prevent you from fully integrating this work.

IS
A wonderful and exciting experience in my life. Essentially i found a great way to my inner mind and heal my self through this spiritual experience. Not mentioned that i learnt so much from nature, all beautiful souls, and facilitators in AYA Retreat. Most of all, Elio and Christina really helpful and supportive in every step on process. They kept all of us safe and comfortable during all the agenda. Nevertheless, All the families are very thoughtful on providing the best experiences. Thank you Elio, Don Miguel, and Christina for having me!

Truly, I cannot imagine finding a better retreat center to experience ayahuasca, master plant teachers, and plant medicines in the Peruvian jungle. There are apparently some tourist traps in the ayahuasca scene nowadays, between poorly maintained facilities, egoic and undertrained facilitators, and shamans with bad intent…: this is not one of those. Elio & Cristina were unbelievably caring, skilled, experienced, attuned, helpful, and understanding facilitators who each take their medicine paths very seriously and are, from my perspective, in this work for the right reasons: to help others safely explore this rich and blossoming world. Don Miguel, our curandero, and his family live on the property, and quickly we were incorporated into their family. We learned a lot about a shipibo traditions. It was hard to say goodbye! This was not an amateur experience, by any means… there are invitations to participate in vomitivos, prolonged silence, confronting plant treatments, and a strict (but delicious) diet is maintained. However, what you get is authenticity, learning, and growth for as much as you are willing to lean in. They do a great job at using invitational language so participants can join or opt out based on what experience you are looking for, though they will lovingly encourage you to step outside your comfort zone, and they will always explain why anything is being offered so you feel informed. The retreat center is beautiful… a clearing in the middle of the jungle with a medicine garden, chickens, cute dogs, family to support and protect you, a river to swim in nearby, and of course the beautiful Noya Rao tree. My fellow participants had such different backgrounds and many had extensive plant medicine experience. I would recommend this to anyone looking to experience Ayahuasca and the plant medicine world in Peru. I found the website and Elio’s communications to adequately prepare me… one thing I missed — they provide laundry service halfway through the retreat so you don’t need to pack much! Blessings on your journey. Aho!

Thank you all for this amazing journey together ❤️ #ayahuasca con #noyarao 🔥 The Shipibo way of approaching Ayahuasca and other master plants really inspired me and was truly a blessing for me to heal my past Traumas. I can finally say, I trust, I let go of fear, I love ❤️ Thank you, now it's time for the integration. The integration of what I experienced for my life and for my work with plant medicines and human beings. 🌿 The Spirit of Noya Rao gave me so much, I feel deeply connected and so honored to be able and allowed to integrate Noya Rao, the tree of light, into my life and Work. 🎄🔥 With the spirit of Noya Rao and Ayahuasca I was, and I am, able to connect deeply with the medicine of my voice, my fears and shadows in an loving way, my visions for my new Self and the future, my potential, my healing power for myself and others ❤️🔥 I regained the deep trust that I lost, I found the peace to integrate, the compassion and Love for every Energy within. Love is the purest, strongest, Energy. Love is.❤️ You can face everything with it, and resolve it. Even your deepest shadows become loving. Because you can trust. You can surrender. You can let go. And you can decide New. What you Really want in life. Because you dont need to fear anymore unconsciously, that's how it was for me. My unconscious Trauma resolved into an anxious state of being in my life. Wasn't really aware of that, that's why I never understood what I was doing wrong. It was a fight in me, unconsciously. Fight or die. The deep fear of dying. So everything in life became a fight. Every Situation where my unconscious told my conscious because of this Situation or that feeling i might die. So Fight! Resolved that Trauma, Gracias ❤️ Now the fight Perspective changed into an ease, trust and loving perspective. For Everything. Trauma resolved, Now Integration of the new found ease, trust, love, peace, Gratitude and Joy ❤️💯 Gracias! @ayahealingretreats #ayahuasca #plantmedicine #traumahealing #noyaRao #treeoflight #shipibo #Bobinsana #medicinemusic #Gratitude

This was my first retreat. I am very comfortable in the jungle and was very excited to spend time in the Amazon. The location, facilitators, families, workers, plants and animals were all welcoming. I felt VERY safe and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to spend time on this beautiful Finca. Each night I slept well in our personal tambos/palapas that were provided. The food was also wonderful. I'm so glad I found this place. I will definitely come back soon!
By Carmen A for Voice of Light Retreat - October 12th -22th, 2021 on 25 Oct, 2021
I want to express my gratitude to Elio, Don Miguel and Kristina. I had the most amazing healing and connections during my plant dieta with mother Bobinsana and Ayahuasca. The center is beautiful, pristine nature, perfect location, simple and comfortable, you are surrounded by magic all the time, butterflies, birds, trees, just divine perfection of Pachamama. The food was delicious, the whole family (staff) makes you feel so welcome, like you are at home. I have been through many other centers, but the Aya Healing Retreats is the best one I have ever experienced, it's really life changing. The support, the integration, the love and compassion that everyone has with you, it was wonderful. Maestro Don Miguel has an amazing heart, powerful healer and he brings all the magic into the ceremonies, so powerful. I am already planning my return next year and already recommend this center to many friends.
