Noya Rao Remote Dieta

Online: Noya Rao Remote Dieta

With Shipibo Maestro Don Miguel

May 20th – 30th, 2021

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 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.

Day 11: Sharing Circle

• The Sharing Circle is similar to the sharing Circle we hold after the ceremony; it will be an opportunity to speak from the hearts without interruption. A beautiful way to seal our container together.

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.

My experience of a Noya Rao Remote Dieta was absolutely incredible. There aren’t enough words to describe the profound transformative journey this medicine took me on. The powerfully held space by our Maestrol Don Miguel and our facilitators Elio and Adelina was phenomenal. The presence, guidance, safety and support that was created and contained within such a sacred space was as if we were all in the jungle together, it was so special. I am eternally grateful!

To be honest, I was very curious about participating in an online Dieta. I’d wondered if we would be able to fully connect with the spirit of Noya Rao and to feel held in a circle, as a group container, via Zoom. Thankfully, the answer is YES!

Don Miguel’s love and wisdom reach far and wide. We could all feel his support throughout the Dieta. He’s an excellent teacher with a heart open wide and much to offer. His stories and teachings are so inspiring!

We were so blessed with Elio’s facilitation of our circles and translations of the Icaros and teachings. Adelina’s a powerful yet gentle guide and we received so much from her medicine music, dance, yoga, breathwork, love, and so much more.

Noya Rao is a master teacher that I’d been praying to connect more deeply with. At this time in our world, we’re experiencing so much transition. It was a gift beyond words to be reminded again and again that I am the light. We are the light. Together we shine. Powerful teachings and jewels I’m holding dear to my heart.

As a mother of three children, it felt quite miraculous to be able to join this Dieta and circle up with beautiful souls from around the world to pray, shed, sing, and remember. I highly recommend this online Dieta! Also, I’m excited to visit Peru to be with this awesome team in person. Sending infinite gratitude from my heart.

I was hesitant at first to do a Dieta online.  I was concerned that the online format would be badly held and not fully respect the plant spirit and ongoing traditions.  However, the pull of Noya Rao was too strong so I took a gamble and resolved to “suffer the container”.  I was proven completely wrong – the container was of the utmost integrity, Elio and Adelina were delightful, loving, and respectful space holders and Don Miguel was a source of wisdom and inspiration.  The journey was deeper than any I have experienced in the Jungle, working exclusively with Noya Rao shed layers and layers of programming and emotions and towards the end of my Dieta the inexplicable beauty of it all cracked me open in ways I had yet to experience elsewhere.  Noya Rao was also delighted to be in Australia and experience the local trees and plants through my eyes.

Thank you to Elio and Aya Healing Retreats for not only a profound plant experience but also a professional and impeccable Dieta conducted with deep love and care.  Eternally grateful

I participated in the remote Noya Rao Dieta under the guidance of Adelina, Elio, and Maestro Don Miguel. The experience was profound, gentle yet powerful, and deeply healing. Never before have I felt so safe, so held and so seen. To be able to work with a Maestro as open and as generous as Don Miguel was really special.

Each one of the facilitators has a deeply respectful and long-standing history with the Master Plant Medicines and it’s made me realize that not only do I want to continue this work and forge my own relationships with plant medicines, but I want to do so in Peru with this group to guide me.

The Dieta was one of the most incredible experiences of my life, so much healing.  I went into the Dieta with a lot of stress, anger, general about a lot of the insanity that is happening in the world due to the corona situation..but also in general in regards to bigger life decisions.
Noya Rao gave me so much clarity.  The first days of the Dieta were so hard, my ego was struggling, many doubt and I wanted to drop out a few times. All my habits were challenged, not having any contact with the outside world, not reading constantly, and researching and staying up to date with the events. At first, was so hard but later it really freed my soul: letting go of all these unimportant things and just being in my own space.

I started connecting more and more to just the natural rhythms of life, the day cycles, the flow and it was so healing for me.
Funnily I was expecting Noya Rao to appear as a vision and partly I was disappointed because I didn’t have that immediate contact.
But then I realized: Noya Rao was there so strong the whole time, the tree of light and the light really spread inside me. Penetrating a lot of the shadows that were there, I feel very very complete right now, still even though of course the day to day things are starting to creep up again. However, I have been able to keep that distance from many of the negative things around me and mentally just letting things pass. I have had so many inspirations in those 10 days to know exactly where I want my life to go, and now I have a better plan which steps I need to take to lead me in that direction.

I was also so excited to understand the process of the Dieta itself, and now I want to start applying this with other plants.
Even though I don’t think anything can replace a deep Dieta in the jungle of the amazon I was inspired to take this technique or practice and coming up with ideas on how to do this type of medicine here in Germany.

So, thank you so much for this opportunity. there are no coincidences in life, nothing happens without a purpose or reason.
Noya Rao came EXACTLY at the right time in my life where I needed her!
I am still singing the Icaro every day, and she is still giving me a lot of strength.  I can’t wait for the pipe to come, and will definitely do a pipe-Dieta as soon as I can.  I would love to have more guidance from Don Miguel and Elio if this is possible, to assure a good Pipe-Dieta.

Thanks so much for the support, help, everything!
