Tree of Light Retreats was birthed with the guidance received from the medicine to create a safe, loving, intimate, and supportive space for people to experience the powerful and transformative plant medicine Ayahuasca, in the ancient Shipibo tradition.
Our passionate and well-trained healers/facilitators have devoted many years to the path of Ayahuasca and traditional plant dietas in the Shipibo lineage, living and working along side these masters in the Peruvian Amazon and the Sacred Valley of the Incas, high in the Andes mountains. We are on a path of service to offer deep healing by offering individualized work with traditional ikaros, holding space, sharing guidance, and loving support to all who are ready and willing to embark on this journey.
Safe Ayahuasca Retreats
We are Westerners, highly trained over many years by respected Shipiba Maestras, from the Mahua family lineage.
This family is renowned for being the carriers of a very sacred tree called Noya Rao, the tree of
light. Noya Rao, also known as Palo Volador, has been described as the tree from God, the
bridge to the divine, or the healer's tree.
The vision provided by this powerful tree through the lens of Ayahuasca is very distinct and
provides a light which can diagnose and uncover the deepest illnesses, imbalances and traumas
of any other plant we have witnessed. This is the light that we work under at Tree of Light
Our retreats are for those ready to do deep work and prepared to shine light on their shadows
so that they can have the recognition needed to transform. We have witnessed over our many
years of experience that when one finds the courage to hold the space and truly listen with
compassion to what their sadness, fears, anxiety, anger etc. have to share with them, they will
reach the very roots of their suffering and this is where true, lasting healing can occur.
It is our commitment to support and guide those who join us with our expertise in facilitation.
Throughout the year we offer seven 11 day Ayahuasca Retreats (optional plant dieta with Noya Rao or Bobinsana for those with previous experience). Our retreats are grouped two in a row to give the opportunity for people to participate in back to back retreats to deepen their healing or to partake in longer dietas.
All of our retreats are open to both men and women and are beautifully held as we integrate both the masculine and feminine in a balanced, loving, healing, and respectful way as each of our journeys are honored in the space.
We feel so much gratitude for this amazing path. Our continual prayer is that all those who come truly receive the blessings of this work. With courage, humility, and great love guiding us all.
