Your Journey to Here

For many people, coming to ayahuasca is a very big decision. Each person’s reasons are different, just as each person’s life circumstances are uniquely their own. For Kira Salak, author of the National Geographic article, and many others like her, the reasons were depression and personal healing. These are some of the primary motivations our guests visit our center: to bring resolution to the root problem causing these ailments in the first place.

Many people also come to find solutions and healing in their relationships. Perhaps you have lost that inner spark and passion for life. Or your life is no longer filled with meaning the way it used to be. You may be on a path of self-discovery or awakening, and you need direction. Some of you may be drawn to the many possibilities that ayahuasca and other sacred plant medicines can bring to your life. The potential for growth and transformation is very real, in both subtle and dramatic ways.

In the face of the tremendous complexity and challenges that modern life presents, Blue Morpho is a place where you can go to safely explore the depths of your life to address your challenges. It is a place where people from
all over the world come to find solution. To find meaning and answers that can be integrated into life back home.

We know the journey to get here is a major step on your path. We are fully committed to doing our best for you. Your safety, comfort, fulfillment and well-being are our top priorities. It is in this commitment and connection that we come together for this sacred work.

A Tradition of Plant Spirit Medicine

Ayahuasca shamanism has been practiced in the Amazon region for many thousands of years. This ancient spiritual medicine is held sacred and passed on through family and tribal lineages that contain the secrets of practice and knowledge. Blue Morpho’s shamanic lineage emerges from a longstanding tradition of healers and medicine people that Founder Hamilton Souther was initiated into in 2002.

Don Julio, Don Alberto, Maestro Hamilton, and the Blue Morpho team of shamans have over 100 years of combined ayahuasca shamanism experience. For the last 12 years we have safely guided over 1,500 guests from 30+ countries worldwide. Many previous Blue Morpho guests have said that we offer “the safest, strongest, most transformational and healing ayahuasca ceremonies in the Amazon.” More...

Blue Morpho is widely considered to be the most professional traditional ayahuasca center in the region. It is our mission to continue doing our very best such that your time here with us helps bring more joy, love, beauty, compassion and lasting transformation into your life. This is our dedication and highest priority.

"I found life"

As one of our former guests once said, "I went to Blue Morpho to escape ringing phones, vapid television, demanding clients, and my frantically-paced corporate existence, but I found so much more than a place to unwind. Instead, I found life." - Heather D.
