Journey to the Heart
A 12-day Amazon plant medicine retreat for men

Join your guides Robert Tindall (author of The Jaguar That Roams the Mind) and Brian James (yoga teacher & musician) on a special men’s retreat at Mayantuyacu, located deep in the heart of the Amazon jungle and situated along the sacred boiling river, for a 12-day Ayahuasca & Plant Medicine Retreat. Mayantuyacu is a centre dedicated to the study of sacred plants and preservation of indigenous knowledge and is home of legendary Asháninka healer Maestro Juan Flores.

The intention of this pilgrimage is to give us men the opportunity to touch the core of our experience together: the wounding, passion, bliss, and fear of it all.

Whether you are looking to reconnect to your passion and purpose, find more meaning in life, heal old wounds, or cultivate deeper intimacy in your relationships, this retreat offers men the unique opportunity to work with sacred healing plants within a strong, safe and respectful container, guided by a master healer and two experienced and mature male facilitators.

Juan Flores is a true curandero with decades of experience working with plants to cure a variety of ailments, so treatment for specific medical and other conditions at Mayantuyacu is available.
