I recently returned from my second stay Amaru Spirit and I am in awe with the healing that took place, once again. Slocum has provided a safe, secure platform for the plants to do their magic. As a female traveling alone, working with the medicine, I want to stress the safety and space provided at Amaru is without a doubt,...

incredible plant based facility that changed my life. Not only was the work with the medicine powerful, but the shamans and staff were equally as inspiring. Great living facility and amazing food! If you are searching for a deeper connection to life and yourself, this is the place.

Amaru is very easy to get to from the airport in Iquitos. From the time you land you can be settling in Slocum and the Amaru family are the best place to go for plant medicine. No matter what your experience level is they are the only people I trust to guide me and make the most of my experience....

I came here for the ayahuasca ceremony but actually came away with so much more. This was a very holistic experience for me, the ayahuasca was just one element of my journey. All of the plant medicines I tried were unique and had their own healing qualities. Slocum, Nicky, Alex and the rest of the team all helped me in...

Almost a year ago I stayed for a week at this place and it was one of the best things I've ever done. Julian really helped me understand my problems and he gave good advice on how to fix them. When I could better understand my problems I could better understand myself and so both san pedro and ayahuasca worked...

I arrived at Amaru curious but skeptical, having been talked into joining a dear friend on an intriguing but not-necessarily-my-kind-of-thing experience. I left Amaru blown away by a transformative and transcendent experience. Right up there with the birth of my kids and marriage to my wife. Yup, that big. Slocum, the owner and "head guide," described Amaru one late afternoon...

My stay at Amaru has helped me grow on so many levels, it has changed me mentally, spiritually and emotionally whilst at the same time reminding me how beautiful and simple life should be. This was my first experience with plant medicine and in my 14 day stay I managed to get a heap of work done. I had the...

My experiences at Amaru Spirit have changed my life. I arrived in June with two friends. They stayed for 10 days, and originally I booked for 14 days but extended to my stay to 21 days. (The flexibility of the centre to accommodate the individual is one of the advantages of this place). I returned to Amaru a month later...

I came to Amaru Spirit with my wife and spent 8 days in the jungle. The setting of the property right in the middle of nature was beautiful. The cabins are wonderfully light and spacious. Surrounded by birdsong, chirping crickets and cute monkeys we felt totally engulfed by nature, disconnected from the information overload of everyday life - bliss! In...
