The Luz Y Vida spiritual retreat center is located on the Yanayacu River, a tributary of the Amazon River, and offers comfortable bungalows for guests. The retreat focuses on traditional indigenous medicine practices, with Shipibo shamans guiding participants through sacred plant medicine ceremonies. The program is designed to provide a safe space for transformation, "re-setting" and healing, with private consultations available for sensitive issues.
The center provides holistic healing of the mind, body, and spirit through our retreat program and daily jungle expeditions. The founders of the center understand the need for social support and spiritual help in an increasingly globalized and always-connected world where stress and trauma become more common. The center aims to provide healing and support for a range of issues, including depression, which is a chronic disease worldwide.

The property was established to provide social and spiritual support to people around the world who are struggling with multiple issues due to their living conditions and experiences. The resort aims to be a safe haven for those seeking solutions to their problems. With a team of trained professionals, they offer various programs and services to help individuals undergo transformation and healing. The ultimate goal is to create a space where people can find solace and support in a world where stress and trauma are common. The resort welcomes anyone seeking guidance on their journey towards wellbeing.

Physical and mental wellbeing are of utmost importance to living a healthy life, and require practice and dedication. Our Ayahuasca Retreat provides the setting and guidance you need to strengthen your body, mind and soul.

Located in the heart of the Amazon Jungle in Peru, our retreat offers a unique opportunity to connect with nature on a profound level, further enhancing the healing process. Our facilitator, with 40 years of experience in the jungle, is always at the lodge to guide you through your journey. Even though we, the supporters, are based near Austin, TX USA, we ensure a seamless and supportive experience for all our guests. Our package is all-inclusive (excluding airfare), so you can focus solely on your healing journey.

We understand the importance of staying connected, hence we have Starlink available for our guests. We also acknowledge the sacrifices made by our military personnel and veterans and offer special discounts for them.
