Shamanic Diet & Training

Progressive training in shamanism is meant for those who:

* Seek the deep meaning of life
* Pursue the path of personal growth
* Strive to have a stronger foundation
* Wish to help others through shamanic healing

If you are interested in a Shamanic diet & training, a longer stay is indicated – but this will generally follow a shorter retreat so that both we and you can assess your suitability.

Please see more information below.





At Yosi Ocha, there is no generic program for a Shamanic diet & training, since learning the ancient Shipibo healing techniques is infinitely broad and has to be addressed individually with each apprentice. Shamanic training requires great commitment and very deep work and it involves a longer stay at Yosi Ocha, usually between 4 to 6 months, depending on the possibilities of each apprentice – some stay for a month or two and then come back the following year, while others are able to afford longer stays.

In any case, we always recommend a shorter retreat (2 to 4 weeks) before starting the Shamanic diet & training. This will allow you to discover Yosi Ocha, get acquainted with the way Maestro Heberto works, and finally, decide if you feel the call to dive deeper into the training process.

A Shamanic diet & training provides a wonderful opportunity for transformation and spiritual growth, allowing a more profound understanding of oneself and the spiritual nature of the world that surrounds us. It is recommended for those who already have experience with plant diets and want to dwell deeper in the art of shamanism and natural medicine in line with the ancient Shipibo tradition. This unique experience will allow you to make a quantum leap on the life-long path of a healer shaman, through dieting different teacher trees and master plants, special stones and medicinal colognes. Once this challenging diet has been successfully completed, you will have the skills to carry out deeper healing work at the service of humanity.

For those who already have experience with sacred plant medicines, Maestro Heberto will make an evaluation through Ayahuasca ceremonies and rituals to see what type of energies they possess and determine the program they will follow during their stay.

If you feel the call to do a Shamanic diet & training at Yosi Ocha, please start by filling in the Retreat Application Form providing us with your background and explaining your intentions.


NOTE: Shamanic diets & training do not include regular Ayahuasca ceremonies as in other Mixed Ayahuasca Retreats. Usually, during the Shamanic diet & training, one can attend a maximum of 8 to 10 Ayahuasca ceremonies per month.
