A fundamental aspect of our teaching is sharing our natural and traditional way of living in total harmony with Mother Nature. We want to inspire others to benefit from the practice of medicinal and master plants that nature generously offers us. For the Shipibo people, the plants of the forest are alive; they feel, communicate, and have the power to teach us. We believe that each plant has it’s “genius,” or spirit. These are the spirits that we see and work with during ayahuasca ceremonies.

When one undergoes a dieta the focus is often on a particular plant best suited to the needs of the individual. “The chosen plant depends upon the personality structure of the patient and the goals of the therapists: some plants are indicated for connecting with emotions and childhood memories, others to strengthen a proper attitude, still others to break some resistances” (Mabit et al 1996). Such plants can include bobinsana/Calliandra angustifolia; toe/Brugmansia sp.; chiric sanango/Brunsfelsia sp.; oje/Ficus anthelmintica; tangarana/Triplaris sp., and the “king of brews,” aya-huasca/Banisteriopsis Caapi, along with its usual admixture chacruna/Psychotria viridis.
The process can be a difficult undertaking. We are tested physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It tests our resolve. It brings up our resistance, fears, and worries, and through this, we open to our true nature and a deep-seated wisdom that lies in each of us. The diet is a time of profound reflection and a chance to experientially learn from the world of plants.
