Designed for holistic personal and life transformation, Blue Morpho’s initiatory ayahuasca retreats are dynamic, effective and integrative. The foundation of our approach starts with ayahuasca and plant medicine, is built through experiential community-bonding and skilled facilitation, and rests upon 7 core principles that we strive to uphold in everything we do: Medicine, Safety, Service, Professionalism, Integrity, Community, and Heart.
We focus our expertise on making this experience relatable and meaningful, with an emphasis on practical understanding and long-lasting results. Our high-percentage of return guests is a testament to the transformational power of ayahuasca in conjunction with Blue Morpho’s process. Since our inception in 2002, it has been and continues to be our mission to share the life-changing experiences that ayahuasca shamanism helps to achieve in a safe, professional and supportive environment.

7 DAY 5 CEREMONY AYAHUASCA RETREATS
Everyone is called to ayahuasca uniquely; our retreats help you discover what this call is and how to bring resolution to your intentions for coming. We create a holistic, integrative and transformative environment that combines ayahuasca medicine with the practical application of shamanism, community-focused activities and heart-based spirituality. Over the last 16 years, we have refined this process into a 7 Day 5 Ceremony initiatory retreat program that safely and effectively bridges Western cultures with traditional shamanism in order to facilitate meaningful, positive and impactful ayahuasca experiences.
The natural movement of ayahuasca gives you the opportunity to address the root causes of what you’re looking to overcome, whether it is rooted in the body, mind, emotions or spirit. As the retreat progresses, and your work with the medicine deepens, we harness the wisdom of the plants to help you navigate your process, understand the journey ahead, and receive the support you need as the nature of this experience unfolds. As it does, you find yourself on a remarkable journey of healing and learning, cleansing and releasing, and going straight into the very heart and soul of what it means to be a human being.
Led by Maestro Alberto Torres Davila and our team of shamans and assistants, our ayahuasca retreats are comprehensive, with a wide-range of offerings that includes ample time for group interaction, individual reflection, supporting activities, and ultimately, the opportunity to take your work with the medicine very deep.

OUR AYAHUASCA RETREATS INCLUDE:
TRADITIONAL AYAHUASCA CEREMONIES: Led by 7th Generation Master Shaman Don Alberto Torres Davila, who has over 50 years of experience working with medicinal plants and is recognized as one of the best ayahuasca healers in the Ucayali River region. Together with Blue Morpho’s team of shamans and assistants, come experience the mysterious and transformational power of ayahuasca. The focal point of our retreats, ayahuasca ceremonies help you release, cleanse, purify, learn and evolve.
COMMUNITY-FOCUSED GROUP ACTIVITIES: Group dynamic is central to our approach. During the retreat, Blue Morpho becomes its own tribe bonded together by group activities that encourage sharing, connection, heart-opening and authentic expression. Activities include:
- Sharing circles
- Sacred motion
- Group discussions
- Breathwork and integrative yoga classes
- Smudging ceremonies
- Sound journeys
- Medicinal plant walks
- Educational trips to local sites
- Integration: tools, applications, going home
- And More!
DYNAMIC GROUP DISCUSSIONS: Discussion sessions are held on most days. These sessions help participants deepen, reflect upon and integrate ceremonial experiences. With a multi-perspective approach, we unearth the anthropological and shamanic, the mystical and the practical, the humanistic and the heart-based. A non-judgmental and exploratory space to learn, share, and grow.
PERSONAL SHAMANIC CARE: Each person receives the shamanic attention they need, both in and out of ceremony. We perform individual healing sessions (called venteadas) for each guest and offer one-on-one time with the shamans and assistants throughout the week. Help and support are available to you the entire time.
PROFESSIONAL MASSAGE SERVICE: NEW! Offered by Señora Isabella, a very dear and skilled huesera (a local bone healer and body-worker). A perfect way to compliment plant medicine, relax your mind and body, and relieve pain. Hosted in a private bungalow with high-quality natural and essential oil mixes, incense and soothing music.
DISCUSSION AND IDENTIFICATION OF MEDICINAL PLANTS: Learn about the unique properties of the indigenous flora. As part of the ayahuasca cooking process, participants get to know the medicinal plants that go into our ayahuasca brew. We will also visit and get to know many of these plants that grow on the property during medicinal plant walks.
AYAHUASCA COOKING PROCESS: Join the group for a special opportunity to participate in making fresh ayahuasca that you will drink during the retreat. Learn about Maestro Alberto’s 50+ years as a medicine man while participating in the entire process. See firsthand the care and expertise Maestro puts into each batch of medicine.
GUIDED MEDITATIONS: Guided meditations are offered before each ceremony and on our night off, offering support to the changes induced in ceremony. Our meditations incorporate relaxation techniques, gentle body movements, integration practices, and imaginary exercises to help bring balance to your consciousness.
SHAMANIC SKILL PRACTICE: Our team of skilled and experienced facilitators offers creative and practical ways that help bridge the shamanic and spiritual into meaningful tools that you can take home and apply to everyday life. With a variety of backgrounds and healing modality expertise, our entire retreat environment is a week-long workshop on how to turn ordinary living into something magical, exploratory and transformational.
INTEGRATION PRACTICE: From the very first day, we emphasize the importance and value in integration. We offer comprehensive integration practices that enhance not only your time on the retreat, but that support your continued learning and evolution at home. Each participant receives our Video Integration Package, as well as a series of emails containing guidelines that highlight useful tools to make use of post-retreat.
SHAMANIC DIETING: On select retreats, shamanic plant dietas are offered to guests who have completed an ayahuasca retreat with us. Traditionally used as the means of apprenticing in the jungle, a shamanic dieta can help provide deep personal healing, learning, and significant life transformation. Dietas are very powerful and recommended for those who are ready to make a serious commitment commit to their evolution. Follow these links for more information on our shamanic plant dietas and Sanango dietas.
As one of the most well-respected and longstanding shamanic centers in the Peruvian Amazon, Blue Morpho is honored to represent the preservation of plant spirit medicine and ayahuasca traditions through dedication, spiritual and professional integrity, and a genuine love for this work. We are indebted to the unending generosity of the plants and look forward to sharing this extraordinary journey with you…
