10 Days 5 Ceremonies With Plant Dieta
Available until September 4, 2021only 3 left

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.

For more information on dietas, view our website and feel free to contact us with any questions.

Casa Del Maestro

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.


I felt at home the entire time of my stay. Met friends I will keep in touch with forever, explored myself and left with clarity. Being with maestro, his family and Matt was the perfect ending to my year. Im now starting the new year feeling like the olympic version of myself. If you can, give yourself that !

What an epic journey to the origins of Maestro Alberto's plant medicines. Everything was great about this trip. The people, the medicine, the hospitality. The tranquility. This was a transformational experience I didn't expect, which I am forever grateful for. Thank you Alberto, Eliseo, Matt and all of Alberto's family for making this possible.

Maestro Torres Davila is a shaman in the truest sense of the word. Apprentice Matt Toussaint is the best and makes the journey most enjoyable and easier. The staff are kind and considerate take care of all our needs. Highly recommended for all, it safe and comfortable.

Alberto and Matthew provide a safe space. The surroundings are peaceful, natural and evidently authentic. Ayahuasca provided an entrance. It was healing; in a way i don't believe i could have gotten otherwise or elsewhere. The way out is inwards never resonated with me so profoundly. Oh, and the food there is delicious!

Unbelievable experience! The medicine and tradition carried by Maestro Alberto and his team is utterly breathtaking. My work here has profoundly changed my life in so many beautiful and indescribable ways. There are few words to illustrate the depth of love I have for this place and these people. Muchas gracias!
