Huamanwasi is the most wonderful place I have ever been. In the heart of the forest, feeling the sound of life, I just had to be. I mostly appreciated : everything ! I went there alone and also once in couple. Both experiences were perfect. The two hosts, Emilio & Romulo, dedicate their energy and wisdom to guide you to yourself, throughout yoga (kundalini, yin…), meditations, and so many other practices that brought me back to the essential in my life. During these two weeks, the experience was stunning, rich and awakening. The ashram is marvellous : pretty, cosy, comfortable. The cooking is delicious and the people there : Leoncio, Nilo, Ada, Mariella etc… have only one goal : make each guest happy and at home. I warmly recommend Huamanwasi ! Should you wish to relax, go deep inside, or move forward. Should you be looking for a place to stay one month (or more) or for a 2 weeks’ retreat, you will live the experience of your life!Don’t think : go ! Thank you so much to you all at Huamanwasi. I will for sure come back again. With love and gratitude.

Huamanwasi is such a high vibrations place that you can’t leave it the same you were before coming ! The personal work you do here is very powerful and everything is done to give you the posibility to go deep in yourself even if you don’t understand imediatlly what you receive doing the experience you live. You go back home with new skills. Time will do the rest! Romulo and Emilio are very profesional, intuitive and precise. They help you in what you need. They are also very good singers ! The place is quiet, peacefull, full of mysteries to discover and good energies to enjoy. Trees and river reconect you to the present moment. Food and activities are healthy. Singing, dancing, yoga, silence, diet cure the heart and the soul. I highly recommand this place to anyone is open-minded and searching another way to see the meaning of life.

I can’t explain all the marvellous that Huamanwasi, Emilio and Romulo brought me in my life. It’s about miracles, magic and infinite love. I thank every day Life for having let myself meet them and do this deep work supported by their wisdom and benevolence. I am in a hurry to find them again and to always receive their teaching. After already two retreats at Huamanwasi Ashram, we continue to want,to reserve time to travel on their premises, soon accompanied by our families and friends, because seeing the result on us, they are also impatientent them to taste this splendid experience. When one discovers Huamanwasi that changes the life completely. One of their retreat is equivalent to 10 years of psychoanalysis !

My stay at Huamanwasi Ashram was a very positive experience for me. The setting was beautiful, I loved listening to the sounds of nature, especially at night. Emilio and Romulo are really talented, with years of wisdom and experience with yoga, music, and plant spirit medicine.
Together, they brought a beautiful energy and perfect balance of strength and compassion to the program. I was challenged to go deep within myself, yet fully supported with any concerns or problems. At the beginning, I did have some fears, but I learned to breathe through my fears and left the ashram feeling nurtured and grounded by the forest, the energies of the others around me, and my own work with the plant spirits. I have experienced many yoga and meditation retreats before, but this is the one that really opened my eyes and set me on a course to a more mindful way of life.
In the forest, a man also detaches himself from his years, like a snake from his skin, and at any stage of his life is always a child. In the woods is the perpetual youth. In these plantations of God, sanctity and decorum reign, they wear the finery of a perennial festival, and the visitor does not see how he could tire of it all in a thousand years.RALPH WALDO EMERSON

The 12 day Yoga and Master Plants retreat I did at Huamanwasi in December 2015 was absolutely life changing, and I dont say that lightly !! Romulo and Emilio are both amazing souls and gifted shamans, who shepherded our group through a well thought-out, organized and integrated program of transformational experiences with grace, wisdom and heart. They offered each person thoroughly personalized attention to guide their individual journey, and the insights they provided to me were spot on- their intuition and skill with Master Plants helped me reach levels and make connections between things that I never would have been able to arrive at on my own. And the yoga sessions, combining yin yoga postures with Kundalini yoga mantras and shamanistic singing and dancing, were just fantastic, complementing the work with Master Plants perfectly. This unique program of yoga and music Romulo and Emilio devised, provided me much inspiration and new angles for my own spiritual practice. In addition, the location and the facilities of Huamanwasi itself are just wonderful, the jungle is like a garden around the main house and the variety of meeting places and ceremony spaces around the site are just beautiful. The rooms and communal areas are so lovely and peaceful ; every detail, from the artwork in the bedrooms, to the paintings and colors of the walls and the beautiful hammocks hanging everywhere, is considered, and each of the ceremony spaces within the forest have a lovely infrastructure and individual feel. And the rest of the staff are just fantastic too- so friendly and warm, and they do such a wonderful job supporting us during our process- maintaining the environs and feeding us amazing vegetarian food!! I cant recommend Huamanwasi highly enough, and would love to return for another retreat! Suitable for Spanish, French and English speakers, although some knowledge of Spanish would be recommended, in order to communicate with all the staff there.

Food for your soul. Huamanwasi is one of the most beautiful places that I’ve ever been. The experience I had there was amazing and life changing. It is very peaceful, clean, and operated with great care. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, and the food is delicious! The other guests that were there were very warm and caring, and I made several new friends. The ayahuasca ceremonies and the things I learned there, cleansed and uplifted my mind, body and soul, and will last with me for a lifetime. Emelio and Romulo’s expertise with the healing medicine is very impressive. The different yoga they teach will add great value to your own practice and life. Their music is enchanting. I would highly recommend Huamanwasi to anyone in the world. I will be returning when I can. I can only see positive experiences being had there by all! Your soul will thank you.

For a long time I wished to do a chamanic work, but the fear slowed down me. I then met Romulo and Emilio in France at the time of a internship of Yoga.
Because of their competences, their investment and their serious, I finally decided to leave to Peru in their chamanic doctor center.
What a stay ! Of course course for the yoga but also for the chamanic ceremonies. Each one among it making mediscover capacities in me which I ignored. I was far from figuring out at which point with this plant Ayahuasca could be moving and healer. I also discovered the powerful of the songs and the music, sounds healers and supporting me for an in-depth work.
Romulio and Emilio are musicians and singer of exception, their benevolence, their presence, their attention are of arare quality. The Hamanwasi place is quiet and very well maintained and food is also very good and healthy.
A place to know absolutely for who is ready to do such a work.

Great Experience ! Huamanwasi is a beautiful and relaxing place.I had an amazing experience and “mother” ayahuasca reminds me that the magic is everywhere in our everyday life. The ayahuasca retreat is absolutely recommended ! The combination with kundalini yoga is perfect! Emilio and Romulo know very well what they do and you feel safe and inspired with them. You must visit this place !!!

Your visit in Huamanwasi will definitely change your life. Be with the harmony with nature, take all mother Earth gifts, enjoy sun and very warm welcome of hosts. Nice accommodation, good food and very safe.

I can not speak more highly of my experience in Huamanwasi. Only on word comes to mind : MAGICAL ! The place is a tranquil and beautiful haven full of light and peaceful energy. Emilio and Romulo’s teachings and guidance are a precious gift which I could never thank them for enough…Gracias, muchas gracias, queridos compañeros.
By Blandine from Paris, France
An extraordinary experience, a place full of serenity ! Huamanwasi is a true haven of peace and a timeless parenthesis for all those who are in search of serenity and pleasure for themselves. The setting is heavenly and the welcome is very warm. One feels right away at home. The services are of very high quality: very healthy cook that makes traveling senses and taste buds, Yoga classes, contemplative ballads … Do not hesitate any more and cross the door of this green box with your eyes closed!

I took part in the retreat at Huamanwasi in February 2017 with master plants. I came on the advice of a friend. The experience was entirely new to me and was satisfactory beyond my expectations. First of all, the place is breath-taking: a few buildings surrounded by a lush and flowery garden which slowly transforms, via rocky followed by dirt paths, into a wide domain where the Amazon forest reclaims all its rights, all of which is lined with the Rio Cumbaza where one can bathe with complete peace of mind. Second, one feels good there: the accommodation is simple, comfortable, airy, and pleasant, and meals are good. The team which ensures the comfort of all the guests is impeccable. The program of the retreat is perfect: the work with plants is combined with kundalini yoga, a time of isolation in the forest, a talking circle, and a sweating hut at the end. The whole program is coherent and designed in such a way that in the end, each person feels they have come to terms with something. Especially, the support of Emilio and Romulo is without fault, which enables one to feel absolutely safe, which is infinitely precious as it enables one to go far within the depths of the unconscious. From that point of view, I feel I have lived in two weeks in Huamanhuasi the equivalent of 10 courses of Vipassana.

Life-changing experience !
I did the 14 day retreat at Huamanwasi, and it turned out to be the most enjoyable, refreshing 2 weeks of my life. The ashram was very well taken care of, and always clean. The vegetarian food was always fresh and wholesome. The staff and volunteers accommodated us very well the entire time, and were always available for support. The shamans personalized everyone’s experience and really got us prepared for our plant medicine retreats, taking everyone’s current emotional and physical state into consideration. I met the most amazing people while I was there, and it was incredibly hard to say good-bye to such a peaceful environment. It was amazing seeing the transformations of everyone throughout the 2 weeks. If you are a spiritual person looking for an experience that will further align you and raise your consciousness, step out of fear and take this retreat !
