With Maestro Arturo Izquierdo Valles and Maestro Miguel

Come and experience deep healing with the powerful master medicine plants of the Amazon jungle, administered by genuine high-level shamanic medicos of the Shipibo plant medicine tradition.

In this Ayahuasca and plant Dieta retreat you will learn the ancient Shipibo knowledge of how to connect with the plant teacher spirits to receive their incredible gifts of wisdom and healing for your body, mind and soul.

Our highly experienced facilitation team and our amazing service staff will support and guide you as you enter an intensive process of deep self-reflection, cleansing and restoration. Begin to rewrite your future with the sacred assistance of the master teacher plants.

You will receive ongoing guidance and integration support from a passionate, experienced community that will help you bring the remarkable benefits of your plant medicine retreat back to your life at home.

This beautiful medicine center, full of flowering gardens and medicine plants, is a unique and exceptional place. Caya Shobo is dedicated to providing real healing, highly tailored to each individual, for small groups of no more than 12 guests.

We operate on a a not-for-profit basis and are one of the only Western-run Ayahuasca centers that has been endorsed by the Coshicox Shipibo Conibo Tribal Council for the outstanding quality of our medicine and our master healers. Our dedication and commitment to genuine healing is second to none.

Whether you’re an experienced seeker or a newcomer, all are welcome.


What to Expect:
You have the option to attend for a 12-day retreat or a 9-day retreat (all participants must arrive in time to start their retreat on the first date listed for the retreat).

If you opt for a 12-day retreat you’ll have the opportunity to partake in up to 8 Ayahuasca ceremonies, tailored to your particular needs through a personally prescribed plant Dieta treatment. With this full-length retreat option, you will have the option to diet some of the more powerful master healing plants (such as Pinon Blanco, Bobinsana, etc), and you will be best placed to experience the deep healing benefits of the traditional Shipibo plant Dieta practice.

With a 9-day stay you’ll have the opportunity to partake in up to 6 Ayahausca ceremonies and also receive a personally prescribed plant Dieta treatment with a more gentle Dieta healing plant (such as Rosa Sisa, Canela, Albaca, etc). A 9-day stay is the minimum amount of time to enter plant Dieta.

Throughout your stay, personalized daily plant therapies are made available to supplement your retreat experience.

The Ayahuasca ceremonies will be led by our Shipibo maestros Arturo & Walter, & Lucinda whose decades of technical experience with Amazonian plant medicine are matched by their empathy and their desire to help others along the path of healing and spiritual growth.

Caya Shobo’s team of experienced facilitators play an important supportive role during the ceremonies, providing translation assistance in both English and Spanish and sometimes also in Russian or German. Facilitators assist with knowledgeable guidance and integration counselling during your stay.


A Focused Journey:
To ensure a distinctive experience, we limit bookings to a maximum of 12 participants. This intimate setting allows participants to receive individualized treatment for their unique spiritual and healing journey. In our experience, large groups can be distracting to participants and don’t afford our maestros and facilitators the dedicated time they need to truly facilitate deep transformation and healing. Also with smaller groups, guests can more easily relax into and focus on their own process.

Please note, that the final number of confirmed maestros and facilitators in attendance at each retreat will depend on the number of guests participating. (Groups of at least 7 guests will have at least 2 maestros and 2 experienced facilitators in attendance).


What’s Included:
Your all-inclusive package covers everything you need for this extraordinary retreat: 8 Ayahuasca Ceremonies (for 12-day retreats) or 6 Ayahuasca ceremonies (for 9-day retreats), personalized plant medicine and icaro treatments, comfortable accommodation with room-cleaning/laundry service, delicious Dieta-friendly meals, and convenient airport or hotel transfers to and from Iquitos. Wi-Fi is available for guests in the common area.


Choose from several accommodation options: The standard room, spacious and equipped with a private bathroom, is our most affordable option. For those seeking a more immersive jungle experience, we offer stylish hard-wood jungle tambos (with shared bathroom facilities). And for the seekers of luxury even in the jungle, spacious Tambo Bamboo with its gorgeous high ceiling and bamboo supports, and its own beautiful private bathroom is our most deluxe accommodation option.


Retreat Preparation & Integration:
When inquiring about a stay at Caya Shobo, you will be asked to provide detailed information regarding your medical, physical and mental health history before your reservation is confirmed. We’re happy to talk with you personally to help answer all your questions, and we will also guide you about preparing your body and mind for the retreat in the weeks before your arrival in Peru.

After your departure from Peru we offer meaningful support for integration including access to group and/or private integration sessions, the opportunity to open a plant dieta from home and recommendations for the next steps in your journey of self-transformation.


Getting There:
Once you’ve booked your retreat, we’ll provide you with all the information you need to know, including guidance on travel arrangements and related queries such as what to pack for your stay.


Reserving your spot is easy – a 40% deposit secures your place. Please see our retreat Terms & Conditions for more information. https://www.cayashobo.com/terms-conditions/


About Caya Shobo:
Caya Shobo, nestled in the heart of the Western Amazonian Basin, is a tranquil haven just a 20-minute drive from Iquitos airport.

What sets Caya Shobo apart is its official endorsement by the Coshikox (Shipibo Conibo Xetebo Tribal Council), verifying the authenticity and advanced level of our master shamanic healers and the adherence to Shipibo plant medicine traditions, particularly the teaching of the master plant dieta. Working closely with a team of highly skilled Shipibo Maestra and Maestro Onánya Curanderos, each boasting a minimum of 15 years of experience (and often exceeding 30 years), Caya Shobo offers a wealth of expertise in Ayahuasca and Shipibo master plant Dieta healing.

The entire team of facilitators is also deeply immersed in the Shipibo master plant dieta healing and learning process, so we are very selective about the quality of our master healers! Lead facilitators also undergo extensive training in Shipibo plant medicine and guest care, ensuring a secure and nurturing environment for each individual’s unique healing journey. At Caya Shobo, your healing process is met with respect and confidence, acknowledging its intricate and personal nature.

Maestro Arturo Izquierdo Valles
Born in a small native community village down-river from Atalaya, Arturo started learning the medicine path at a very young age (under 10 yrs old) from his mother and father who are both Maestro Onánya healers of the Shipibo tradition. By age 18, while studying Teaching at university in Lima, Arturo was already holding healing ceremonies for his university professors. Now in his early 40s, we believe Arturo is one of the most talented young Shipibo Maestros working in Peru today.  Arturo holds an advanced technical knowledge of Shipibo healing and medicine plant dietas. He is an excellent teacher of the Shipibo culture, history and cosmovision. In Arturo’s powerful icaros, his beautiful melodies, his vitality, and his calm, self-possessed presence we see a person who carries the legacy of the ancient knowledge of his forebears. Arturo lives with us at the Center and often visits his family in Atalaya.  We are very happy to have his help as a lead resident Maestro, and to have his family in our hearts as our dear friends.

Maestro Miguel
Miguel is an experienced and highly respected Ayahuasca Curandero from Chile, who began working with Amazonian plant medicine healing 23 years ago. He initially studied with renowned indigenous maestros in the Quechua-Lamista and Mestizo traditions in Peru and Brazil, including Don Jose Campos, Ronnie Rengifo and Don Solon Tello Lozano. In 2008, when confronted with the challenge of healing his own respiratory problems, he discovered the depth and potency of the Shipibo medicine tradition and since then has primarily focused his shamanic healing work on utilizing the knowledge, power and tools of this tradition. Miguel is one of the co-founders of Caya Shobo and is a proud supporter of many Shipibo friends and their families.
