“Ancient Amazonian shamanism & plant medicine right at your European doorstep”

Important COVID19 Update

As a consequence of the travel and public gatherings restrictions due to the COVID19 virus, we had to postpone the retreats that were planned to be facilitated by our Peruvian shamans (Peru is in lockdown). Instead, we are offering a few exclusive, intimate (6 people only! COVID proof) retreats , led by the Dutch Maestro René (Barin Mane), for the months of June-August.

Each participant/couple will have a private room, and we even offer the possibility of renting a small house in our property (ideal for couples who want to have even more privacy) for the duration of the retreat!

The retreats include full accommodation, fresh vegan meals, private and group sharing circles and 2 ayahuasca ceremonies , led by maestro René (Barin Mane).

Available Retreat Dates

June 12-14 – 3 Day Healing Retreat
July 10-12 – 3 Day Healing Retreat
August 7-9 – 3 Day Healing Retreat

Maestro René (Barin Mane)

René’s devotion and dedication to ayahuasca are incomparable with any other European ayahuasca facilitator. He discovered the sacred medicine in 2008, which changed his life completely, and ever since then he is dedicated to the mission of providing ayahuasca in the most professional, safe and respectful setting possible.

René has led hundreds of ceremonies in the Netherlands in the past decade (mostly in the well-known ayahuasca center om-mij”, which René founded), guiding thousands of people in their journeys. He has also trained many other ayahuasca facilitators, and helped setting up new centers, spreading his knowledge, safety and quality standards.

Along the way he also started travelling to the jungles of Peru ,to meet traditional shipibo shamans, to learn from them and to invite them to Holland, in order to build a bridge between south america and europe.
While working day after day with these traditional ayahuasca maestros, he learned the shipibo wisdom and knowledge of working with ayahuasca, and was even initiated by Maestra Doña Asencia Sánchez Canayo from the Shipibo tribe, who gave him his shipibo name – Barin Mane, which means “the radiation of the sun”.

René’s approach to guiding ceremonies is unique and is a result of his vast experience, and the knowledge he received from the traditional, shipibo shamans. René does not try to copy the Peruvian shamans, but instead, he brings their wisdom and energetic tools to the west, adjusting to the westerns needs which are very different than of those who live in the jungle all of their lives.

In the ceremonies René holds a strong, stable frequency and create a safe energetical space, allowing you to face your shadow and go through your journeys, feeling safe and protected. He has been described by many as “the lion” – holding the frequency of integrity, courage and strong heart, providing the participants with the courage and trust that is needed to dive deep into their inner darkness.

Rene is a well known ayahuasca authority in Holland, he has been interviewed to various magazines, radio and TV channels (see links below), and helps spread the knowledge about the healing powers of the sacred plant, and how to use it in a safe, responsible way, taking clear measures to make sure the participants are safe and protected energetically, emotionally and physical.

He is a part of the Ayahuasca community in Holland, a group that works to create safety regulations to ensure safe, responsible usage of the sacred medicine.
