UPLIFT. HEAL. AWAKEN.
WHO WE ARE
Spirit Plant Journeys is a safe, experienced and transformative Ayahuasca Retreat nestled in the Peruvian Andes, created to help you open your heart, look within, and awaken to a new way. We offer intimate retreats with small groups in which our traditional shamans and experienced facilitators work with you closely and guide you through your journey within.
Ayahuasca is a medicine.
As one of the most powerful visionary plants on the planet, we believe it is crucially important to respect her traditions and her healers. In service of this belief, we work closely with the Shipibo-Conibo tribe.
The Shipibo Maestros have preserved and maintained their healing traditions and secrets for over thousands of years. They are one of the oldest and most respected ancestral shamanic lineages, and one of the few in which female healers are as common and as highly respected as male healers.
As facilitators between cultures, and bridges between worlds, our mission is to provide a safe, open healing space to deepen your relationship with your truest self and open up to what is possible.
No matter your beliefs, Ayahuasca is a powerful tool that can help you to uplift and empower yourself, heal your wounds, transform and allow you to let go of anything that no longer serves you.
We believe that in order to experience real, tangible transformation and to truly shift your life, you must embody the healing process. We provide you with the necessary tools and techniques for you to navigate your healing journey in a gentle, natural and nurturing way.
Integration & Shipibo Tradition.
Many years of care, growth and experience have gone into creating a retreat program that inspires and sustains real transformation. With a down to earth, heart-centered approach and a kindred family spirit, we provide you the setting and tools to transform, uplift, and fully realize the changes you wish to make in your life.
At Spiritplantjourneys, we believe that grounded integration work is a necessary step in the healing process. Integration work is the practice of gaining conscious awareness of the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual changes that happen within ourselves during and after working with Ayahuasca. This work is about reinforcing and flexing the muscle between our conscious and our subconscious self. Through this practice we become aware of our relationship with ourselves and towards life.
Our highly experienced shamans and facilitators serve as guides in this process, and are trained to provide you with different tools and techniques to help you to embody the healing process. We believe this is the key to real transformation, to walk the talk and embody the experience in your daily life. This allows you to continue to nourish, flourish and open up towards life in a balanced and empowered way.
We don’t follow the ‘new age movement’. We don’t impose any belief-systems upon anyone. Everyone comes with a unique background, a unique story, unique beliefs and we honor that. We honor you and your truth.
We do ask our guests to respect the rules that the shamans implement on the retreat such a dietary restrictions for safety reasons. We consider them to be doctors of the Ayahuasca and in working with their tradition and lineage, we find it important to respect and follow their guidelines as Healers.
We ask everyone to come with willingness and an open mind. Working with traditional shipibo shamans it is important to follow and respect their guidelines around the work such as diet, ceremony rules etc. Working with Ayahuasca is not a cognitive experience, we cannot ‘think’ our way into healing.
This is a Journey that opens you up to the way of the heart, body and soul. Ayahuasca teaches us, shows us, cleans us from everything that we are willing to let go of. It reflects and shows us the relationship we have towards ourselves and life. Using this medicine as a tool to reconnect with our authentic self.
We provide a safe and down to earth space in which we guide you through the experience of Sacred plant medicine with traditional Shipibo Maestros, in a gentle and nurturing way. We truly believe that every single person on this earth has the power to change anything they desire to change within themselves.
We are blessed to live in a time where Authentic shamanic traditions are available to us and we meet those with great respect. We are blessed to be working with powerful Female and Male Traditional Shipibo Shamans. Our programs are held in the Sacred Valley, a safe haven away from the noises of the city and the dangers of the jungle.
We limit our Group size to a maximum allowance of 12 people so that our Healers, facilitators and Maestros can give you close personalized guidance along the Journey.

Spirit Plant Journeys facilitated the most personally expansive, eye opening and liberating experiences of my life. From hospitality and accommodation to understanding and gentle guidance through what memorable adventure followed, the facility and its loving caretakers weaved a beautiful tapestry for me to witness upon my own becoming.”
If there’s only one thing I could communicate about Spirit Plant Journeys it is that I would urge anyone who has profound questions about life or problems that seem to have no solutions to try it too – and the sooner the better. There is another world that’s right here, right now, and I believe it could cure much,
much more than just my illness.
I went to this retreat a nervous wreck. I had anxiety daily. I was stressed out from work, alienated from family and friends, and felt completely lost. Its been a little over two months and these days I experience very minimal stress, no anxiety, and I am reconnecting with people again. I feel for the first time in a long time like I have a direction and meaning in life. I have Ayahuasca, San Pedro and Spirit Plant Journeys to thank for this.
My ayahuasca experience with Spirit Plant was the real deal. Apparently there’s a lot of fakers out there just trying to capitalize on the “ayahuasca tourism” trend without actually putting any real care into the process. Sarah and Neils were terrific, and I can’t recommend them highly enough. As a Marine Corps combat veteran, I have encouraged all my friends who served in Afghanistan with me to pursue the healing provided by this plant medicine. I will be returning to Peru as soon as possible to continue my work there as well.
