Diets of Master Plants


The diet is the main method of learning and training of the healers or “shamans” of the Amazon. They are an indispensable requisite to meet in order to receive the teachings of the spirits or “mothers” of the plants. It is understood thatcertain plants can, through their ingestion, provide us with teachings about the art of living or the art of healing amongst other sources of knowledge. They are known as Master Plants.

The Mothers of the plants manifest themselves to the patient or the ayahuasquero in diverse ways, yet mainly through the mareación (dizziness) during ayahuasca ceremonies or in dreams. To favor intuition with a clear mind, it is necessary to be isolated from the mundane world, in a silent and calm place without external stimulï other than the natural surrounding environment. The meals are prepared without salt or sugar. Strong fragrances such as perfumes, lotions, soaps or any type of cosmetic is avoided. During the diet, only the ayahuasquero or the person in charge of bringing the meals is allowed to visit the patient. It is prohibited to take a walk or speak with anyone else.

During the diet at least 3 ayahuasca ceremonies are held. It is also possible to work with one or several Master Plants, according to each individual case. The Master Plant is responsible for sharing its knowledge intuitively and in dreams. Baths with bark, leaves, and flowers of certain trees are also made to cleanse the body’s energetic field.


Program: individual bungalow, all meals, 3 Ayahuasca sessions, master plant diet and transport from Puerto Maldonado airport to our centre.
