"This place is a healing magic school and I loved it!" - Xavier (January 2016)
"I don't have a large enough vocabulary to express my feelings about my time at this place. If all of humanity could be able to have access to this kind of way of living I believe we would be able to achieve a collective ability to exist in peace and sustainability. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the depths of my being." - George (January 2016)
"I was skeptical at first if this would really help me, but after only 4 days I felt like a new person; no way is it easy, but best thing I have ever done!!" - Mel (January 2016)
"I want to say, again, that I am profoundly grateful to Julian, David, and all the teachers and staff at Amaru. I could never have imagined such a profound personal/spiritual journey that unfolded for me while at Amaru. I think everyone who chooses to participate in Amaru's program is incredibly brave. I have so much respect for all the clients who are willing to take on the challenge of such a difficult, yet SO rewarding journey. Among MANY other things I learned, I learned I am so much stronger than I realized. Amaru's program is definitely the best bang for our buck!" - Angie (January 2016)

I have so much more to say about my experience at Amaru, as you probably know, but will leave it at that. Way too much to write!
"Amaru Spirit changed my life. Not only was the introduction to plant medicines incredible, but the bonds I formed with people there made my stay amazing and transformative." - Dianne (December 2015)
"For those of you in need of serious, individualized healing, look no further. As a first-time solo female traveller, I was well-taken care of, in a way that far surpassed any expectations that I may have had prior to arriving. I was dealing with extremely acute grief and depression when I arrived. I truly could not have hoped for a better, and more welcoming experience! I received all of the support and answers I needed, within Amaru Spirit's unimaginably comfortable and beautiful setting in the jungle. Also, the staff and guests I met there were truly helpful and amazing! With all of these factors in place, the transformation I was able to undergo was like nothing I could have ever imagined for myself. I am well on my way to healing, as well as spiritual awakening, thanks to the invaluable time I spent at Amaru Spirit. Thank you so much!" - Amrita (December 2015)
"I really enjoyed my stay at Amaru Spirit...Its a great retreat and I can't wait to go back there...The food and accommodation is top class as well as the ceremonies and the lovely people that run it...!!!" - David (November 2015)
"Absolutely one of the best experiences of my life! I cannot imagine having picked a better place for my first Ayahuasca retreat. Everything from the food, to the lodging, to the staff and the medicine, were beyond top notch. But what really made Amaru Spirit special were Slocum and Julian. They are both extremely knowledgeable and I feel very grateful I had them helping me through the whole process. I cannot recommend Amaru Spirit enough!" - Bart (November 2015)
"Amaru Spirit went out of their way to personalise my treatment to ensure it best suited my specific needs.
