UPDATE: We can only accept volunteers who can speak Spanish right now.

We are a Plant Medicine Healing center in the native Shipibo community of San Francisco, Pucallpa, Peru. The healers come from a long lineage oy onayas (Shipibo for master healer) and they use ayahuasca amongst other plants to help people to get back in touch with themselves and heal physical and mental conditions.

We need help in translating between Spanish and English to chat with people and help around. The primary things we require of you are compassion, understanding, open mindedness and humility. This is important because as a volunteer, you will be interacting with the guests, some of who are going through very deep and sometimes difficult healing processes and need to be in an environment of compassion and support.

Maintaining a pure lifestyle is necessary because we interact energetically (on a usually unseen level). As a volunteer spending time with guests undergoing deep healing processes with the plants, and the maestros who are working with the plants regularly, it is important for the well being of everyone here that you be as energetically clear as possible during your stay. We donít require you to follow the same strict diet as the guests (unless you are working with the plants also), but require you to avoid drugs, some low vibrational foods such as pork and sex while you are staying with us, and if possible to prepare by avoiding these things for a week or more before arriving.


Food and accommodation will be provided for you. We prepare three meals each day for the guests and volunteers. You are also welcome to cook your own food.

We spend most of our time at the center; reading, socialising, playing volleyball, meditating etc.

At times, we go out on the river for a trip in the boat, or for a trip to the center's farm, or to the nearby cities of Yarinacocha and Pucallpa.

On ceremony days, we usually go to the farm/jungle for San Pedro, and stay at the center for Ayahuasca or Cacao ceremonies.

There's a family feel at the center amongst guests and other volunteers, and we love welcoming new people.
