What is Intensive Dieta?

During the Dieta the student will follow one or more Master Plant Dieta in Isolation and will mostly receive the visit of the teacher and facilitators. The Master Plant dieta or teacher plant diet is a unique opportunity to dive into the Shipibo lineage and study the tradition of connecting with the spirits of plant medicine during an Ayahuasca retreat in the Peruvian Jungle.
In the tradition, the dieta will assist the dietero/a (student) to establish a life-long relationship with the spirits dwelling in the plants or trees that play an important role in the Shamanic practice of working with Ayahuasca.
Part of the 26-day Shamanic Initiation journey with the Master Plants, learning the tradition is facilitated through lectures, workshops, sharing, and periods of personal silence and self-reflection. 
While in Isolation on a private tambo (jungle hut)  the student will receive the meals at his/her accommodation and contact with other participants will be very limited.

The Master Plants offered on the Shamanic Initiation Program

A traditional Master Plant dieta has several ritualistic components, including how the plants are prescribed. One option is the Master Plant dieta is prescribed to an individual by the Teacher. Thought it is possible an individual might innately feel a strong connection with a Master Plant and receive powerful visions or dreams that manifest as an invitation to complete a dieta with a certain plant. Either way, our curandero overseeing the student’s healing may intuit that a Master Plant is perfectly suited to the needs of their students, based on their own dieta experience. Maestro Shaman Don Miguel during the retreat will offer diets with Noya Rao, Bobinsana, Chiric Sanango, Ayahuma, Marusa, Chullachaqui Caspi.

Shamanic Initiation Program

The purpose of the Master Plant dieta during the Shamanic Initiation is for the dietero(a) to form a lifelong relationship with the plant spirit. Like any relationship, the quality of the relationship will be determined by the energy one gives to the connection with the Plant Spirit. Sincere, authentic attention given to the plant throughout their fast will enable the dietero(a) to unlock guidance, information, and energy stored within the plant and to seek important answers that will aid them in their healing journey. Once the length of the dietero(a)’s dieta has been fulfilled, spiritual protections will be sealed by their curandero or teacher in order to preserve the healing realized through the dieta.


Who is this Shamanic Initiation Plant Dieta for?

The Shamanic Initiation program is designed for those who have previous experiences with Master Plants dietas or that have some knowledge in working with plants spirits with integrity and reverence. Undergoing a dieta retreat requires a commitment to dietary and behavioral regimes. Abstaining from certain foods and activities throughout the period of the dieta is a powerful expression of dedication and commitment to change, evolution and growth. The willingness of the student to sacrifice aesthetics 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.
While in diet the work of our experienced facilitators will be to ensure safety and to support the participants in integrating the work of the Master Plants and Ayahuasca during and after the retreat.
