Ayahuasca Retreat – Pucallpa, Peru (The Amazon)

Return to Offerings Overview

August 2-16, 2022

There are many paths to the same destination and we each have to find our own way. Ayahuasca & traditional Shipibo Dietas are a beautiful and profound path, it is also not the path for everyone. Listen to your inner voice. Listen closely. You alone can know if you feel called to work with Ayahuasca. There are 8 specific individuals who are meant to come on this transformational journey. A journey that could change everything.  If you hear the call, I invite you to join me and 7 others in the Amazon Jungles of Peru to work with Ayahuasca grounded in Shipibo tradition. You will work directly with Maestra Juana Silvano Teco in ceremony and receive preparation, processing, and integration support from both myself and Ute Christine Behrendt. Ayahuasca has given me the gift of seeing with new eyes and a deep faith in myself. I can’t wait to support you through your own incredibly profound breakthroughs, expansion, and transformation.

Trip Cost: $2,695

Ute and Jenna (Costa Rica, 2021)

An Immersive, Transformational journey

We will be going down to Pucallpa,  Peru, nestled in the Amazon Jungle to explore the depths of ourselves with the support of one of the greatest teachers of all, Ayahuasca.  This 14 day retreat will have 6 Ayahuasca Ceremonies lead by Maestra Juana Silvano Teco. Ute and I will be facilitating the retreat and providing preparation, processing, and integration support. I met Ute in 2018, while working at the Temple of the Way of Light, an Ayahuasca Retreat Center in the Amazon Jungle of Peru. We had amazing synergy and when I happened to run into Ute in 2021 on a beach in Costa Rica (after journaling about how I wanted to collaborate with her), I knew it was fate!  Ute is an incredible being who has dedicated herself to learning and studying through long term Masterplant Dietas with a well known and respected traditional Shipibo Healer lineage in the Ucayali region in the Peruvian Amazon. She has worked directly with Juana for years and sees herself as a bridge between ancestral wisdom and western understanding of life. To learn more about Ute’s experience and work, please visit her website: True Journey.

Venture Beyond in collaboration with True Journey is offering the chance to join Ute and I in Peru for a two week long highly personalized retreat in August 2022 with individual & group preparation and integration support before and after. We are limiting the group to 7 journeyers. This will be deeply moving, beautiful, intense, profound, and frankly life changing. Our intention is for each of you to experience a deep connection with your essence and to expand into the Truth of who you are. We will be combining sacred plant medicine, ancient traditions, nature, coaching, mindfulness, personal and group reflection, and travel to create the perfect container for growth.

The sacredness and deep spirituality of Ayahuasca will be profound in itself, it has been used for centuries if not longer by indigenous tribes across the Amazon. Take a moment to check in with yourself, if this journey is calling you, please message me and I will provide more details. This journey will activate truth and transformation creating a path of possibility and choice.

What’s Included

If you join this journey, you will be gifting yourself presence, loving attention, and healing. You will have three dedicated individuals (Juana, Ute, and myself) creating a grounding supportive container for you to go deep within yourself. I will manage all logistics prior to the retreat and provide coaching & mindfulness support before, during and after the retreat so that you can go inwards, dive into the challenges you want to overcome, and flourish. Ute will manage all logistics once we are all in Peru including food and onsite communication. Ute will also be the bridge between Juana and yourself, as well processing support during the retreat as well as integration afterwards. Juana and Ute will facilitate all 6 ceremonies partnering with the medicine to clean energies that do not serve your highest and best good.
