Ayahuasca Lodge Costa Rica

Meet Our Gentle Shipibo Maestros

At Ananda Lodge we work with some of the most respected and powerful healers (Onanyas) from the Shipibo tribe in the Peruvian Amazon.

Ayahuasca Shaman Costa Rica

Our Shipibo maestras and maestros are gentle, loving beings who have dedicated their lives to helping others heal through sharing their sacred medicine traditions. Through years of deep commitment and solitude to various master plants, the healers call upon their plant spirit allies to bring energetic healing into the body.

While ayahuasca by itself can be considered deeply healing, it is the skill and level of mastery of the curandera(o) that profoundly impacts the depth of healing. Through the singing of their icaros, or sacred healing songs, the curendera(o) deepens their connection with the medicine in relationship with plant spirits and ancestors. This allows them to channel protection, strength, healing and guidance into the ceremony space and when working one-on-one.

Oni, in Shipibo, is the name for the Ayahuasca brew. At Ananda Lodge Retreats, we operate with the highest level of integrity when serving medicine. Ayahuasca medicine that is brewed for our retreats is done with sacred reverence and prayer to provide deep healing for those who consume it.

Learn more about Shipibo healing practices

The Shipibo-Conibo are indigenous people who originate from the Peruvian Amazon. They are deeply rooted in their spiritual beliefs of healing with plants and gain their healing powers and wisdom directly from the plants. Evident through their icaros, or healing songs, and traditional textiles, or kenes, the Shipibo believe in the concept of an all-encompassing reality of oneness. The Shipibo follow a very specific progression of healing work with pasajeros that ensures the utmost safety, protection, and deepest access to removing trauma burdens and emotional imprints. Interested pasajeros can learn more by downloading this study from ICEERS.

Creating a New Paradigm of Plant Medicine Healing

At Ananda Lodge we prioritize healing over profits. We believe that sacred healing, steeped in traditional approaches, should be available to everyone.

What you will find with our Signature Reset Retreat, is a comprehensive and deep approach to healing that begins the moment you register. Unlike most centers, we include 4 individual sessions to help you prepare, navigate, and integrate the wisdom of the plants. We prioritize healing over profit, where the level of service and support you receive, far exceeds any medicine experience in Costa Rica. This compassionate approach aims to serve those in need most – first responders, war veterans, healthcare workers, survivors of abuse, and those from traumatic or marginalized backgrounds.

The Thread of Support Before, During, & After

Integration Beyond the Norm

Our philosophy of C.A.R.E is based on the principles of Compassion, Acknowledge, Reverence, and Embodiment. It is these principles that serve as the backbone of our trauma-informed model. Compassion as the cornerstone of healing, Acknowledgement of the trauma imprints we all carry, Reverence to the plants, and Embodiment as a roadmap for lasting healing and integration. As our pasajeros, it is our promise to be with you every step of the way, from booking, to preparation, through to navigation, and post-retreat integration. Learn more about our healing philosophy.

Ayahuasca Retreat Costa Rica; What is Ayahuasca

Traditional Tribal Healing

Traditionally, Shipibo plant medicine healing was an intimately shared experience amongst community members. In the West, we have moved away from this with an eye on profit and maximizing returns, versus optimizing the environment for the healers to work within.

At Ananda, we believe in traditional tribal healing where every pasajero is seen, witnessed, and intimately cared for. Our small group size allows the healers more time to do their healing work, more capacity for our CARE team members to intimately support you, and an increased ability for you to go deeper, and safer with the medicine.

Ripple Effect Healing Packages

At Ananda Lodge, we believe in empowering our guests with somatic resources and tools to access their own inner wisdom and power.

Our Ripple Effect Healing Packages place a strong emphasis on the somatic process, the intricate relationship between the body and mind, and empowering pasajeros to reunite with the innate intelligence of the body.

We offer 3 programs designed to support your healing journey. Each program is designed to meet you where you are at, and can begin pre or post retreat with us.
