Next retreat: 21-28 November 2024

Seven days to learn or deepen this practice, which allows you to get in touch with the spirit of plants and receive from them care and teaching.

Come and discover it

Seven days to get in touch with the wise plants, at the end of which you can decide whether to continue or close the diet.

Five days in which we will be guests in a cozy country house, the newborn Sama Rao Center, on the wooded hills of the Taro valley, in the shade of centuries-old oaks, pampered by the owners of the house.

Five days in which we will alternate moments of silence and introspection to energetic cleaning, accompanied by the cleaning of the mapacho (the sacred tobacco), the icaros and the sound of the drum.


day 1: evening introductory seminar

day 2: we get to know each other and choose the plant to diet

Day 3/6: Day practice of alignment/energetic cleaning, night ceremonies of shamanic drum or gong bath

day 7: sharing circle and diet closing*


Individual counselling

During all the time everyone will have the opportunity to conduct private interviews, to clarify their doubts and receive personalized support.


Although the location will not allow us to experience real isolation, during the day we will all be encouraged to spend time alone.

Energetic purification

Through the shamanic drum ceremony, the singing of the icaros and the ritual use of mapacho (sacred tobacco) and agua florida, we will favor a deep energetic cleansing.

Singing circles

We will learn how to connect with the spirit of the plants, also through the medicine songs circles, a joyful occasion to demonstrate our gratitude to the plant kingdom.

What to expect?

Seven days is not enough time to be able to say that you have completed a diet, but it is enough to establish a first connection with the plant and to make a decent cleaning of our energy system.

This mini-retreat is designed for those who want to approach this practice but do not know if they can commit for as long as necessary. By the end of the seven days you can decide whether to continue or not.

How long does a dieta last?

Un periodo minimo ottimale perché la pianta svolga il suo lavoro è di quindici giorni. I sette giorni del ritiro sono come un trampolino di lancio; ma anche limitarsi ai soli sette giorni può aiutare a centrarsi e gettare un seme per  il futuro.

Perchè un ritiro di 7 giorni?

Consapevoli dei limiti imposti dalla nostra società, ma desiderosi di offrire a quante più persone possibili questa occasione, un week end standard di tre giorni era davvero troppo poco, quindici giorni poteva essere troppo. Sette giorni ci è sembrato un tempo ideale.

Which plant will we diet?

The plant to eat is different for everyone. During the first day we will deepen the acquaintance with each participant thus intuiting the best plant for him. We can offer Piñon (colorado or blanco), Bobinzana, Chiric sanango, Wayra caspi, Albahaca, Uña de gato and many more…

Can I eat a plant of my choice?

If you are already in the practice and want to participate as an opportunity to open a personalized diet, with a plant chosen by you, write us and we will understand together if it is possible.

What will we eat during the retreat?

From the moment we take the plant we will not eat salt, sugar, spices, alcohol, red meat, dairy products and various seasonings Our diet will be mainly based on rice, chicken, eggs, green apples, bananas, oat milk. It is possible to adapt the menu for vegetarians and vegans.

Individual consulting

The diet process is very delicate and individual. Although much depends on the sensitivity of each person, it is likely that immediately the person is experiencing very strong and new inner processes.
This is why it is extremely important to always have someone to share with and know.

correctly interpret and address the “dieter”. During the five days of the retreat when there are no common activities, it will be possible to have personalized advice. It will be possible to work with Voicing or with shamanic tools, depending on our personal inclination.


Siberian shamanic drum

Eduard learned the art of the shamanic drum by spontaneously connecting with the tradition of his homeland, when the spirit worlds opened.
The sound of his drum is powerful and care, cleans and directs the diet.

The collective ceremony of shamanic drum is the highlight of the experience of the mini-retreat, during which the sound of the drum and the song of the icaros “activate” the medicine of the plant that we are dieting and promote the introspective processes.

Mapacho and agua florida

Among the favorite tools of Amazonian shamans is the mapacho (Nicotiana rustica), a particular type of tobacco that is used for ritual and healing purposes.

During our diet we will use tobacco to communicate with the spirit of the plant and present the diet, as well as to clean it and to direct its processes.

huncle Alberto

Closing singing circle of the 2023 Easter diet mini-retreat. Thanks to all dieteros for the beautiful energy and participation!

Medicine songs e Voicing

Singing is good for the soul, and singing to the plants is good for the diet.
In the Shipibo tradition many operative acts of care and magic happen with singing.

Learning the art of enchanting one’s world is one of the gifts that very often makes the diet. We will open the voice singing together the songs of the contemporary shamanic tradition.

Qi Gong

Since ancient times in the East, energy cleaning techniques have been developed that skilfully combined physical exercise and breathing.

Among these we chose to bring Qi Gong in our path because it is the most complete and harmonious, and it is also the least problematic from the point of view of physical effort.
