Noya Rao Remote Dieta

Online: Noya Rao Remote Dieta

With Shipibo Maestro Don Miguel

September 3rd – 13th, 2020

Online Master Plant Dieta

In a time of social distance and travel restrictions, we urge the need to support individuals who want to explore the Shipibo tradition by dieting a Master Plant or Teacher Plant and Tree from home.

The vision of this Online Noya Rao Dieta is to offer students the opportunity to follow a Shamanic Dieta from the safety of their home supervised by our Shipibo Maestro Don Miguel.

Home Retreat

Shipibo Curandero or Shamans traditionally used fasting, a diet of master plants and seclusion from others to seek guidance from the plant spirits and obtain the vital knowledge needed to heal others.

Before students can communicate with plant teachers, they must undergo a rigorous process of mental, physical, and spiritual purification. The Dieta usually accompanied by abstinence from sex, pork, red meat, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, and processed food. Abstaining from any substance or activity that might cloud the mind is essential for the plants and trees dieta to promote physical healing and spiritual transformation.

Therefore we invite the students to correctly set the container for the dieta and create a safe home retreat for the duration of the dieta. It is possible to continue to work and attend to family matters. However, it is highly recommended to avoid social interactions.

After the 12/24 hours fast, the participants will be allowed to eat a simple meal containing no oil or salt, or any of the foods they have committed to abstaining from for the duration of their dieta.

Day 4: Lecture and Noya Rao Icaro’s class

• On a Zoom meeting, you will learn the Shipibo Tradition of the Master Plants and how to work with your pipe by Don Miguel. Don Miguel will also teach the group about the significance of the Noya Rao Icaro that you can use throughout the Mater Plant Dieta. This knowledge will be vital in helping you to access your highest potential and realize deep healing and transformation.

Day 5: Breathwork and Sound Healing Journey

• This will be a beautiful practice where you will be working with a feminine style of breath called Clarity Breathwork. This breath brings to light the power and simplicity of breathing into the body with intention. Bringing more awareness to your breath’s quality can open up more clarity in every aspect of your life. This guided breathwork will be paired with sound healing with various instruments and singing to support the journey. This container will allow you to connect more deeply with yourself, your diet, and Noya Rao.

Day 6: Guided Somatic Meditation and Movement

• This Meditation will help to deepen and expand how to listen to the wisdom of your body. We will explore through seated meditation and movement, the more subtle aspects of your felt sense of experience. By developing more communication with your body, you will be able to handle, identify, and understand your emotions more freely. This practice will introduce how to navigate all emotions and how to move them through the body rather than the mind.

Day 7: Self Healing, Self Resourcing, and Self Love

• This workshop will focus on the importance of learning how to self-nurture through times of difficulty or discomfort. Before, during, and after this dieta there may be things that arise that are uncomfortable. This is very much a part of the process and is a wonderful opportunity for healing. In this workshop, there will be a guided meditation, teachings on various ways to self-resource, journaling prompts, and self-love techniques. You will be deep-diving into identifying what you need and, more specifically, what best supports and nourishes your spirit.

Day 8: Sharing Circle and Singing Circle

• The Sharing Circle is similar to the sharing Circle we hold after the ceremony; it will be an opportunity to speak from our hearts without interruption. During the Singing Circle, we will share the virtual microphone with the Circle. You are also welcome to offer Medicine songs, Icaros, mantras, practice your Noya Rao Icaro or listen and receive from the group.

Day 9: Integration Workshop

• This Zoom workshop is meant to support the group in finding the practices that integrate into everyday life the relationship created with Noya Rao and how to grow strong foundational roots like a tree.

Day 10: Closing Dieta Arkana Ceremony

• After one has fulfilled the terms set out of the Master Plant dieta, a closing ceremony will be conducted by Don Miguel on zoom, which signals the end of the fast and celebrates the students’ dedication and determination. The closing usually takes the form of chanting of a special Arkana, a protective Icaro by Don Miguel sang individually.

Post-Dieta Private Integration Session

Day 10Closing Dieta Arkana Ceremony

A traditional Master Plant dieta has several ritualistic components.

The opening usually takes the form of Icaros or chanting that announces to the group present that one’s commitment to their dieta is about to begin.

This opening ritual is vital as it publicly acknowledges the significance of the student’s commitment and helps to strengthen their determination to succeed in their immanent fast and shield the student from any negative energies or interference from spirits that may occur during its course. This ceremony also supports the bond between the Master Plant and the individual to form.


Eliminating certain foods from your diet before the start of the Noya Rao Dieta demonstrates your commitment and dedication to healing and creating the foundation necessary to effect profound changes of the body, mind, and spirit.

To best prepare to the dieta please avoid the following food and activities one week prior to the dieta:

. Pork
· Sexual activities of any kind, including masturbation
· Alcohol
· Marijuana
· All street drugs (cocaine, MDMA, amphetamines, etc.)
· Spicy foods
. Other plant medicines

During The Dieta

The purpose of the Master Plant dieta is for the student to form a lifelong relationship with the indwelling plant spirit. Like any personal relationship one has with another person, the energy one will determine the quality of the relationship gives to the connection.

Sincere, authentic attention given to the plant throughout their fast will enable the student to unlock guidance, information and energy stored within the plant and seek essential answers that will aid them in their healing journeys.

Abstaining from certain foods and activities throughout the dieta is a powerful expression of dedication and commitment to change, evolution, and growth. The student’s willingness to sacrifice aesthetic and visceral pleasures for the period of the fast demonstrates to the plant spirit that they are determined to heal and are ready to receive guidance, strength, protection, and the endowment of special abilities from the plant spirit.

Therefore, it is imperative to limit the amount of food during the day and avoid particular food or activities.

We will send you the list of the food and activities to avoid after registration and a recorded video on setting up a Master Plant Dieta from home.

Post- Dieta

After the Dieta is complete, our maestro Don Miguel will inform the group of the duration and the requirements of our Post-Dieta.

This is a mandatory practice to cultivate and integrate the connection made with the spirit of Noya Rao safely.

The Post Dieta may involve the abstain of:
Pork, Sexual Activities, Alcohol, street drugs for some time.
