Our Story

We are a collective of like minded individuals who have overcome lifelong battles with problematic substance use, mental health difficulties and post traumatic stress disorder.

We are people with lived experience as drug users who have found freedom from active addiction & sought refuge in personalized holistic recovery models that incorporate teachings from various traditions.

The Center

Our tranquil facility

Nestled in the lush Peruvian rainforest, a stone’s throw from the Nanay River, our beautiful permaculture & recovery center is designed to unify our visitors with the earth, the plants, and the self while collaborating with Maestro Ricardo Amaringo & Nihue Rao Centro Espiritual

Nihue Rao Centro Espiritual is the ayahuasca healing center owned by the master healer Ricardo Amaringo, co-founded with Dr. Joe Tafur, family physician and the visionary artist Cvita Mamic.

The center is located one hour south of the Iquitos airport, along the Rio Nanay, an affluent of the Amazon river, in a quiet and lush part of the Amazon jungle in Perú, South America.
