      I just returned from a 2-week master plant dieta at Caya Shobo with my husband. This place, the maestros and maestros, are true true medicine if you’re looking for the deepest healing of your life.

      I didn’t know what to expect coming into my first dieta – but what I experienced, I could never have imagined. Maestro Arturo is gifted beyond rationale to help us heal down to the deepest places we would never be able to otherwise. Maestra Lucinda is pure-hearted and can see through all, from miles away. Maestro Walter holds it all down and gets us through the muck to the other side. Each have their own incredible abilities in the ceremonies to bring a full and profound experience with the medicine and the icaros.

      The Caya Shobo site was honestly so much better than I expected for staying in the jungle. The rooms were clean, comfortable, had everything we needed. I stayed in the bamboo tambo which had its own bathroom and access to power when it was on.
      The staff made us such great meals for such a bland diet that was required for the experience. I never felt hungry for more or that there wasn’t anything available if I needed it. They also provided us laundry service each day and cleaned our rooms every few days. All with smiles and very warm and friendly demeanors. It is also incredibly safe. Every person there treats everyone with respect and space. I never once felt concerned for my safety in any way. You are in the jungle with creatures and critters, but the accommodations do a pretty good job at keeping things out, for the most part.

      The diet is no joke. If you’re ready for some serious deep work and healing – this is the best place you can come. I truly believe that any ailment can be cured through the power of the master plants and these shipibo maestros and maestra. Truly. If I ever become truly sick with anything, I’m coming here first.

      I recommend to anyone who is willing to take it seriously and is truly ready to be cured of all that is unwell.

      My husband and I will definitely be returning, and more than once. Can’t say enough about the magic, the safety, and the care and support of everyone at Caya Shobo. You won’t find a better place for such an intense experience.

      Caya Shobo is the REAL deal. HIGHLY recommended for anyone ready to do the deepest work of their life.

      The maestros and medicine at Caya Shobo truly has the power to heal and cure. This is REAL medicine for your mind, body and soul.

      My wife and I attended a 12-day Master Plant Dieta. The Maestros Arturo, beloved Lucinda and Walter – and medicine maker Wilder all taught us so much. The facilitators were fantastic and a living proof of the work.

      Dieta will be a core part of our lives for years to come thanks to Caya Shobo. This center gave us the space, medicine and attention for us to do the deepest work of our lives.

      The center is really well ran by beautiful, hard working people, that make sure you have everything you need. It’s clean, safe, and  has great accommodations. They do a wonderful job with the food as well.

      If you feel the call, go to Caya Shobo! Don’t wait to heal.

      I would very much like to extend my condolences to Maestros Arturo and Walter and the entire Caya Shobo staff on the loss of Don Pedro. I arrived at Caya Shobo in December 2021 with some serious medical issues. Don Pedro sang to me 7 out of the 8 ceremonies I participated in – more than any other participant in our group. What an incredible privilege! What phenomenal healing I received from this man! He was so kind and generous with me. His bluesy icaros were a true joy to receive. He was the Muddy Waters of the Amazon! One couldn’t help but have a smile on their face after receiving one of his icraos. I was truly heartbroken when I received the email from Caya Shobo that Don Pedro had passed away. The world has lost a man of great indigenous wisdom and kindness – something this old world needs more than ever. My sincere sympathy to all at Caya Shobo. I’m sure he is greatly missed by all of you, but please know he is also missed by all of us who received his wonderful healings.”

      Caya Shobo has been my home overseas for the last 4 years of my life. It is a place where I feel like I’m pampering my soul.. the flower baths, the medicine plants, the amazing nourishing food, the support from the high level maestros and facilitators, the ceremonies, the peaceful sounds of nature, the staff, the learning, the healing.. I can write so much more.
      The medicine path has changed my life in so many beautiful ways and I feel so blessed to be a part of Caya Shobo and to have met the amazing humans that make this center so much more beautiful.
      If you are looking for real transformation, healing and support, Caya Shobo is the place to find that.
      For me, it’s a little piece of paradise =)

      Ive worked with Caya Shobo with Miguel, Beccy and Franzi for several years now. Before finding Caya Shobo I sat with various communities and retreats. Utlimately I found my home with Caya Shobo. Their emphasis on long diets and going deep into the medicine in order to build lasting personal change resonated with me ( it worked for me too- ive beat some addictions and cleared some deep traumas thanks to the medicine and my plant diets.) I brought my wife into the medicine comunity of Caya Shobo as well and I have watched her blossom as a result.❤️ Sending Love to all the maestros, facilators, apprentices, staff and pasajeros at Caya Shobo.
