Traditional Shipibo Medicine House
Located in the Hearth of the Peruvian Amazon
Female led Shipibo center devoted to offering a powerful and authentic experience. A full immersion in the ancient Shipibo wisdom and a transformative journey of self-discovery and deep healing.
Experience the traditional Shipibo way

Sanken Nete is rooted in the ancient Shipibo tradition and knowledge of plant medicine.

The center was founded by Shipibo Healer and Maestra Elisa Vargas Fernandez a world renown healer and custodian of powerful Icaros.
The center is managed by Elisa and her family and is a vital part of the local Shipibo community.
While our retreats are centered around Ayahuasca ceremonies, we believe in a holistic approach that includes preparation to the experience, introduction to the various medicinal and sacred plants, the practice of “dieta” (“diet”,) and a path to integration of the messages and the insights received into the everyday life.

The retreats are designed is to help re-awake our true nature and focus our minds and souls on our true purpose.

A Powerful And Transformative Experience

At Sanken Nete we are committed to providing a safe space, compassionate guidance and a personalized approach for each participant to make sure that they feel supported and protected during the journey.

An experience with Mother Ayahuasca can be a powerful journey of inner discovery and spiritual transformation. Elisa and her family of Curanderos have worked with Mother Ayahuasca and other medicinal plants for more than 40 years. Icaros play an important part in the healing journey; Elisa and her family of Curandero put particular attention and energy in crafting the Icaros that will guide the participants through the other plans.

We want each participant to go back with a renewed body and soul, and able to integrate the experience and the insights into their everyday lives.
