  • Retreat with Maestro Pablo

    We are happy to invite you to visit our beautiful and tranquil retreat center for the months of April and June, 2022. We will be hosting a retreat with Maestro Pablo, a representative of the traditional Shipibo tribe. Maestro Rider Arevalo, will also be here to work with you at this time.

Medical Prevention and treatment

Shipibo is one of the largest ethnic groups of Peruvian selva residing in the areas around Pucallpa and in the in the Ucayali River Basin. Tradition Shipibo medicine is based on in-depth knowledge of medicinal plants growing in abundance in the jungle, as well as ancient beliefs on dependence of human’s physical and mental health upon the spirit realm. Shaman can connect a person with plant spirits thereby ensuring the recovery.

Similar to European herbalism, Amazonian ancestral medicine uses extracts, herbal infusions or plants au naturel, however, in contrast to European culture, Amazonian shamans communicate with plants as with their partners and teachers through visions, dreams and altered state of consciousness. Unlike European medicine, written transfer of knowledge does not exist in Amazonia. In order to obtain sacral knowledge and become a healer, shamans’ apprentices undergo a long-term diets under supervision of experienced curanderos. Diet, understood as following certain lifestyle rules including certain food restrictions, is the way of treating patients with various somatic and mental disorders.

Shipibo are distinguished by relatively greater openness to the contacts with Europeans compared to many other Amazonian tribes, as well as willing to share the ancient medical knowledge. In our Centre you can have firsthand experience of the traditional medicine of the indigenous peoples of this area, the medicine considering human being as an integral psychophysical system. We offer you to undergo detox treatment on physical and energy level, harmonize all processes in the body and in interaction with the world and, eventually, have a happier and fuller life.

Moyano Centre of Ancestral Amazonian Medicine was established by a world-famous shaman Guillermo Arevalo, spiritual leader of Shipibo-Conibo community. Maestro Guillermo is a representative of a shaman dynasty preserving his tribe’s sacral knowledge transmitted from generation to generation. In our Centre you will feel the link of times: Maestro Guillermo’s mother Maria Arevalo, his son Rider and other experienced shamans work here.

All of them for many years help people to heal from physical diseases and overcome mental pain. Moyano Centre attracts those who are interested in traditional Amazonian medicine, those who wish to enrich their experience by participating in ceremonies with sacred plants such as Ayahuasca and San Pedro as well as those who is ready to dedicate years of life to becoming a curandero. Shaman power, skills and curandero experience guarantee safety of the ceremonies with Ayahuasca and other master plants

Those participating in shaman ceremonies often face the dark side of their nature, dual nature of master plants having both light and dark sides, consequences of psychological traumas as well as maleficent magic impacts. Shaman helps the patient to go through such complex and often painful experience, thus avoiding the negative impact of all these factors. Protection and support in the buildup of own energy resources is the shaman’s function allowing patient to avoid risks associated with inclusion in spiritual Amazonian practices. The reality of Amazonian world includes both light and dark shamans (brujos). Ceremonies with such shamans are dangerous and can have the most unpleasant consequences for those who carelessly approached them. We encourage you to give serious consideration to selection of reputable shaman.

Ayahuasca (liana of spirits, liana of dead) is a brew traditionally used by the indigenous peoples of Amazonia for communicating with spirits, acquiring sacral knowledge about the outworld and achieving healing skills.

The brew includes two main plants and liana ayahuasca. For centuries this sacred brew was taken by shamans to reach another level of perception allowing to use delicate energies for healing purposes.

In the 1960s, western professionals in the fields of medicine and psychology started to study ayahuasca. To date, multiple studies have been conducted, numerous articles and publications describing advantages of ayahuasca have been issued. All of them are united by one conclusion: after intake of ayahuasca human consciousness expands, so he starts to perceive the delicate world in which everything appears to him more widely and in more depth. Besides, ayahuasca, being a powerful medicine, rejuvenises and cleanses body and soul, providing deep-level salutary effect on physical and mental state of an individual.
