“One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.”

― Leonardo da Vinci








stepping into the self-mastery of oneself

“Dieta is a Spanish word that means – simply enough – “diet.”

The dietas originated as a plant-based practice for developing attunement to the currents of spirit that underlie the material world. Traditionally, this has been applied to such skills as hunting, divination, ancestral consultations, healing, leadership, and so on. The dietas are part of broader systems of human-plant relationships (food taboos, garden magic, and so on) that characterize many of the indigenous people of Amazonia. As the Amazon basin is populated by a high concentration of plants whose chemical behaviors are complex and ‘active’ enough to be used medicinally, and humans have been interacting with them for 1000’s of years, the dieta tradition is well developed.”

This retreat space has been designed for anyone ready to explore and heal deeply like never before with the Medicines of the Amazon this will be led by Papa Gilberto a true Maestro who has over 60 years of Shamanic experience with the Plants of the Amazon. He is the last of a dying breed. 

From personal experience of my own, I have never met another Shaman who is so humble, so experienced and that I have felt so safe and held in his presence. He works effortlessly, there are no gimmicks, no show manship but an honourable Shamanic way. He provides you a very safe place to heal to the depths of your Soul.  Oscar supports Papa in the Ceremonies who is a very special powerful Maestro in his own right. When Oscar sings his Icaros the healing intensifies its such an incredible experience to lay witness and literally experience deep within your body.

On my own personal healing journey, I have never, ever healed so deeply in Ceremony during my Dieta as I have with Papa and with that of the Plant Dieta Noya Rao. This is the tree of light, of true knowledge. There are only three of these trees in the Amazon, so entering a Dieta with Noya Rao is a huge blessing and an absolute privilege. The tree cannot simply be grown. It is said that they come from the Stars. The Shipibo have worked in sacred Ceremony with Noya Rao for centuries. Working with this tree is essential for those wanting to work as a healer, move deeper into the light and lay bare to deeper parts of knowledge and wisdom within. 

From my own perspective the Dieta with Noya Rao opened me up and my relationship within the Plant Kingdom and myself. I was flooded with so much light,  I felt it burn away aspects of myself and my life that no longer served me. It has shown me the truth in all areas of my life and every single person that is within it. It opened up the knowledge within me that I never knew existed as if laying dormant. It empowered me to move me and my life forward. It humbled me, for the healing I received was so deep, that I had never experienced in other Ceremonies during the last decade of my life. 

My whole Soul re-emerged during this Dieta something I had been working towards for 12 years. Within this was a humbling and loving experience of living within the Shipibo Village something I will never, ever forget. I feel such a respect and appreciation for each and every one of the Shipibos. Hence why if you want to join the small group in November it must be done with the utmost respect for you won't be living within a commercial retreat space but the actual Village, you will become part of the community. You will have your own private living space for your own private reflection time and healing, and your privacy will be respected as you will respect the lives of each of the beautiful Shipibo inhabitants. 

To get to the Village we will have to take a speedboat up the Amazon for three hours to their Village, this will be organized before you meet me in the hotel. Whilst staying in the Village you will gain access to buy some of the beautiful artwork that they sew in clothing, you can bring items with you if you wish to have something unique to you that can be created during your Dieta. Or simply buy one of their handicrafts the prices are extremely economical and goes towards feeding their families and other vital things they need to survive. 

Deep respect and silent appreciation need to be held during Dieta with the Plants and to live amongst this Ancient and humble tribe of Shipibos. A time of stepping away from your life to heal deeply, reflect and move into a brand new way of being within yourself and living your life in a new way, if you so choose. 

In the tradition of the Shipibos Master Plant Dieta is a time of important dedication to move away from normal ways of eating, being, feeling and seeing. To give full attention to the Spirits of the Master Teacher Plants of the Amazon.

The Master Teacher Plants you will be working with include Noya Rao, Bobinsana, Chiric Sanango, and Machinga.

Noya Rao is also known as the flying tree, path of the truth and the tree of light and God. 

Bobinsana is a shrubby tree that grows 4 to 6 meters high that is usually found alongside streams of the Amazon. It produces striking pink to reddish flowers typical of the Mimosa family of which it is part. For ones heart. Everyone loves Bobinsana!

Machinga is recommended for people who have suffered physical trauma, for example broken bones. It is made by cutting into the bark, collecting the thick, sticky white resin that comes out and making it into a thick liquid. 

Chiric Sanago to align to the warriors path and re-set bring in more integrity.   It has many properties, one of the most important being to strengthen the central nervous system.

This retreat can deeply change you and your life in so many deep and life long ways. To receive healing from a Master Shaman with over 60 years experience, work with Ayahuasca and other Plants in Dieta and spend time living with an authentic Ancient Shipbo Village within the Amazonian Jungle.

In Ceremony, Papa and Oscar will sing traditional Icaros to receive deep-felt healing during the journey. The Icaros are deep and powerful during the Ceremony using Shipibo ancients ways from a long lineage of Plant Medicine healing. 

I will have a mini schedule outside of the retreat for you to explore aspects of traditional Shamanism in the form of Shamanic Journey Work, Ancestral clearing, Ancient Rituals, Soul Work and letting go of old relationship patterns and manifesting in new realities before you leave the retreat. We will share the journeys and I can offer insight. If you need to ask Papa or Oscar outside of Ceremony this can be arranged. Some information on integration will be covered before ending the Dieta.


Your important, your matter. You are deserving of love, light, and healing. 









Guanajuato, Mexico 24th January to 31st January 2020.

Shamanism has been on the Planet since the beginning of time for its an intricate part of human existence to protect and heal the health of the earth and that of the human inhabitants.

We will work deeply with the Medicines of the Amazon.,delve deep into Ancient Shamanic Rituals and step into the asecpts of Soul findings.

What is Soul Retrieval?

When we are fully in our Soul we feel whole, full of joy and lightness in Be-ing. It's our energy this connects us to a higher calling and purpose, our passions in life. The mind is concise and clear when the Soul is whole.

Soul loss can occur at any time in life during trauma, loss, grief, accidents anything that is painful and shocking can take parts of us away. It's a logical response to pain. Soul Retrievals can be instant and life-changing. Restoring you from death and being enslaved to the Ego.

From a shamanic perspective, soul loss is a common cause of illness. Traditionally, a shamanic practitioner would conduct soul retrieval within three days of someone experiencing trauma. Today, modern shamanic practitioners seek lost soul parts that are willing to return from any point in life.

There will be 5 Ayahuasca Ceremonies. 5 Rappe Ceremonies. One Yopo Ceremony. 

Each Ceremony will be unique to precisely what you need. I work in a way that each person receives precisely what they need to heal deeply and move into a new way of being. By working with aspects of Plant Medicine and Traditional Shamanism that give you an ability to heal and gain knowledge to take home with you to self heal once the retreat has ended. To heal and empower you.

We will conduct Ancient Shamanic Ritual, Ceremony and work deeply with the emphasis on Soul/Power Retrieval to restore you, bring you to a state of wholeness.

We will delve into the aspect of Shamanic Earth Healing for those that feel a calling to give honour and support to the Earth at this time. Each person will gain their own unique way to heal we will join together and gift healing and receive insight from the Earth in a Shamanic way of life.

The other aspects may come into play if it's needed. I work to provide each participant what they need to heal deeply.
