Ayahuasca Retreats

In The Peruvian Amazon

Discover your true self

At Pulse, we create the space for you to get in touch with your truth, opening your path for deeper meaning and greater fulfillment in your life. We work with plant medicines such as Ayahuasca, Nunu, and Kambo using the traditional practices of the indigenous cultures of the Peruvian Amazon.

With great respect for the plants and the knowledge and healing that comes with them, our lineage of Shipibo shamans set the stage for truly deep and profound healing. Awaken your inner power through their sacred and powerful icaros (healing songs), and discover your connection to all things by exploring some of the 2.2 million hectare Pacaya Samiria National Reserve which is our backyard. Nourish your body and soul with fresh, clean, delicious meals that promote your ayahuasca experience, and integrate healthy habits into your routine with our yoga classes and extensive selection of gym equipment for all levels. Relax your mind and spirit with sound baths, meditations, pranayama breath work, and OM circles, or simply enjoy the tranquil views of both sunrise and sunset from our front porch on the banks of the Ucayali River, surrounded by lush biodiversity and the mesmerizing sounds of the jungle.

Shipibo Culture

Authentic

Shipibo Shamans

Arkana’s exceptional team of highly-trained Shipibo Master Shamans represent an unbroken lineage of plant medicine work. With a combined history of over 70 years of experience working closely with Ayahuasca and other master plant teachers of the jungle, our compassionate healers lovingly share their teachings, healing songs (icaros), capabilities, and knowledge with integrity and honor. We strive to maintain the traditional practices passed down through thousands of years of indigenous Amazonian culture, in order to continue to promote the true purpose and nature of plant medicine work.

A TEAM OF PASSIONATE CAREGIVERS

Guests that come to our Center often say they feel like “part of the family” with us – that’s no coincidence, as we are one big family at Arkana! The people that are with you throughout your experience can simply facilitate your own healing journey or become an integral part of it. Our highly-skilled, loving, and professional team of caregivers welcomes you to join our tribe, where we strive to make you feel at home and at ease, supported and cared for with all the love and compassion that is at the core of the plant medicines and people we work with.

Supporting

Holistic Health

At Arkana Spiritual Center, we work closely with both female and male Shipibo shamans and our staff of healers and psychologists to bring you a comprehensive program deeply rooted in the traditional practices of indigenous medicine. Our carefully constructed program optimizes your healing by incorporating Eastern and modern philosophies for long-term integration into a modern world.

In addition, we believe the health of physical body sets the foundation for the health of the energetic body. Often ignored in this type of spiritual work, we provide access to a fully-stocked gym and offer yoga classes during your stay with us, so you can begin implementing the healthy habits that will carry this work with you into your life back home.

Giving Back

To Our Community

Experiencing the medicines with us is a transformative personal journey, and so much more. We work closely with our local community, the Amazonian village of Libertad, to ensure that our Center can benefit and give back to the people who have so generously let us into their homes and hearts. We create employment opportunities, teach free English classes, provide a space for the ladies to sell their handmade crafts, and assist in construction projects, among other things. Our latest endeavor is outfitting the entire village with free solar panels, so every house can have light and electricity. When you join us, you are helping the rainforest and the Amazon communities that live here.

“So grateful to have had this experience! I am so glad I took this trip! The staff at the centre really took care of me and helped me get the most out of this experience. This was such a life changing trip! I was in such distress before I arrived. Mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. Now I feel like a new person. I really found myself in the jungle and I recommend this company to anyone who is wanting to find inner peace and happiness, and do a bit of exploration and sight seeing as well. The staff and Shamans became like my family, and the group I joined to take this journey with, will forever be in my heart. It was worth every penny! I will definitely be returning! Thank you, Pulse Tours!”

“A transformative and tremendous experience. Not only are you exposed to the culture of Peru, then fun & unique adventures, but also a true opportunity to learn about yourself, the cosmos and practice divine healing. Mother Ayahuasca connected with me and I with her in all of my ceremonies and I feel like the person I’ve always wanted to be. If you have an inkling to go, don’t hesitate, don’t wait.. Take a chance, GO! The shamans are impeccable and are pure embodied light. The staff is beautiful, compassionate and kind – they are there to help you on all platforms along. I plan to return as soon as I am able. Thank you Pulse Tours”

“I did the 14 day Machu Picchu and Amazon trip and could not have had a better experience. Every part of the trip is well thought out and expertly organized. Pulse takes great care to make even a solo traveler such as myself feel welcome and part of the larger group. I have never met a more friendly and caring group of facilitators and shaman. Within the first 2 days they felt like family and treated each guest as such. Definitely not a 5-star hotel but much better accommodations than expected considering you’re in the middle of the jungle. Would recommend to anyone who wants a safe and amazing experience.”

“Yes, not much sauces or marinated foods.. But nonetheless natural, wholesome, delicious, TASTY and nourishing. Warm banana purees were an example of the morning fruit juices we had. chicken and fish were always sauced and juicy/ tender. Rice was there in plenty to carb up, Fruits were unlimited (had about 15 mangos my week there). Not to mention the Ayahuasca diets they provided which included an intriguing green juice everyday (wish I had been disciplined enough to go on it just for that drink). Great food is a big win people!”
