“During a ceremony we can perceive the frailty and brevity of human life and the eternity of our consciousness or soul. We face the transcendence and escape from the prison of our senses. We recover our interdimensional nature and thus we become what humanity really is, a universal consciousness.”

We provide the opportunity to experience a personal yet universal path of healing that combines traditional and holistic systems and methods of healing. Undergoing a process at Sinchi Runa is a unique opportunity in unveiling and realizing the very nature of existence; an opportunity to reconnect to and discover the truth and freedom of who one truly is.
Awakening the inner master
Sinchi Runa is a word in Quechua that means “Warrior of light”. For us, true healing means awakening the master that resides within each individual. Awakening the inner master and intelligence allows us to reach the source of all healing. Once this inner source is found, we become the masters of our own existence, capable of meeting each challenge with wisdom, grace and ease. In this way one will be able to integrate one’s understanding and continue the journey after leaving Sinchi Runa, while we remain available and ready to help with any post-process integration and growth.
At Sinchi Runa we understand that each moment, pleasurable or painful, is an opportunity for comprehension and spiritual growth.
At Sinchi Runa, we feel that all healing comes from understanding, from the resolution of our inner conflicts in an encounter with truth and our awakening.
For this, we need sincerity in our search, a willingness to truly see ourselves in our light and shadow beyond our conditioning, beliefs and mental paradigms.
The search for silence is our greatest tool on this inner journey and introspection with master plants.
In the nakedness of silence, we are given the opportunity to truly face ourselves, to feel our hearts and the inner master speaking, while allowing the plants to teach and guide us.
With the wisdom of the Amazonian traditions and the invaluable teachings of Vedic philosophy, we try to serve this search for truth through silence and an authentic path of awakening with Ayahuasca and Master Plants – a path of healing through understanding and thereby seeking to open the heart and awaken the nature of love and compassion that resides in each of us.
“I’ve met a handful of shamans in my short time on this earth. However, none have come close to having the amiable essence in which Sanango exuberated. There are a few rare people with whom you can look in the eye and immediately you know, that they know. They have come into contact with and are holding inside of themselves great truths. These truths are profound beyond words and so only their eyes can really tell you. Their eyes tell you that they know. When I looked into Sanango’s eyes, I knew he knew.”

Master Plant Retreats
Our retreats and processes offer a journey into the depth of plant healing, ayahuasca and genuine shamanism. The aim is to remember one’s inner wisdom and initiate a journey of self-discovery and spiritual awakening.
The shamanic diet is a spiritual exercise that works through the guidance and intelligence of one or various master plants. It is one of the most important rituals and elements within Amazonian shamanism.
At Sinchi Runa, we strongly feel that master plants, while taken within a sincere and sacred context, are among the greatest gifts humanity can receive at this moment in time.
A deep immersion retreat master plants is an adventure into the heart of self-knowledge, bringing us into the essential understanding of our inner world and nature of existence.
Treatments for Addiction,
Compulsion, Depression & Trauma
At Sinchi Runa we offer specialized processes to treat depression, anxiety and addiction as well as other energetic disorders related to physical and mental health.
To us, all our afflictions, such as addiction, depression or immunodeficiencies, are symptoms of underlying disharmonies, which our treatments address, from the deepest space of the soul, so that a real transformation can take place.
Personal Treatments at Sinchi Runa are an opportunity to heal the roots of afflictions that lead to compulsions, addictions, depressions or the results of deep-seated traumas or pains that express themselves in the body, as well as an opportunity to harmonize with a variety of states of being and perception, without the need for antidepressants or antipsychotic medication – for these “medications” generate even more disconnection, which for us is the root of the disease.
The goal is a total reinvention of oneself, which is the proposition of the Personal Treatment. A complete transformation in which one can leave aside even considering oneself “an addict” or “sick”, and be able to exist beyond these limiting beliefs to live a life of fullness.
Held securely by the wisdom of the plants in a sacred shamanic context, we begin to transform our whole being. We transform and harmonize our suffering, blockages and limitations through deep spiritual and energetic cleansing, ultimately allowing reconnection and integration of inner truth and freedom to flourish naturally.
