Phoenix Rose offers an intensive 10 Day Retreat for those who wish to integrate deeply into the medicine. This retreat is beneficial for any looking to receive thorough healing and learning through the medicines and even for those looking to experience the medicine for the first time.
This program offers enough time and practices allowing you to gain incredible benefits from the medicine in a way that is not overbearing. Also allowing you enough time to receive and complete personal healing plan from our shamans depending on what is observed in the first ceremony where there is the initial analysis. After this ceremony you will more than likely be given a specific plant to take or a type of practice to follow. The plant, type of practice and time to follow these instructions will vary person to person depending on what our shaman sees in necessary.
We also offer plant diets for those wishing to stay longer or to come outside of retreat times. To book please fill in the form on our booking page.

In addition to your ayahuasca experience at Phoenix Rose, each guest may choose to participate in an Oje purge. This powerful medicine, extracted fro the Oje tree as a white sap, acts as full body cleanse which not only clears your body physically but energetically as well. This is known to be like smoothing the walls with a coat of white plaster before adding the color to the room.
This process begins first thing in the morning before the sun rises and requires a full day of a strict diet and isolation and must be done on the 1st day of your retreat. Needing to be administered so early, this will require you book for 11 days and arrive before the first day of the original retreat schedule. This offer can be arranged for $150 additional to the original cost.
You have the option to undergo Sapo/Kambo treatments during your stay. Typically it is given in a series of 3 treatments to fully boost the immune system and clense toxins from the liver and gallbladder. It has also been known to open certain people up to their ayahuasca experience.
For those who opt out of the Oje dieta, we offer the first treatment on the 2nd day at 7 AM for no extra charge. If you wish to undergo more treatments we can offer to you any day which you have sufficient energy for $25. This requires you to skip breakfast but does not require isolation. You may feel a bit tired until the evening.
San Pedro cactus is used widely and can help certain people dive deeply into their emotions and subconscious. San Pedro tends to be slightly more mild and longer lasting, between 10-14 hours, which gives certian people time to understand their experience and to bring clarity to certain issues. This is offered at the end of the 4 ceremonies and requires a day of rest following a ceremony. This would require you to book and extra day at the end of your retreat and can be arranged for $150 addition to the original cost. You can also choose to replace with the last Ayahuasca ceremony for no additional cost.
