What is Immersion

Some of our guests have specific aspirations that require significant commitments of time to achieve. This may include physical health issues, mental and emotional disturbances and spiritual complaints. Others may have an interest in learning more about shamanism, working extensively with ayahuasca medicine and participating in plant and shamanic diets. To read more about plant medicine and shamanic diets please click here.

To accommodate guests who are looking for an extended stay at the ‘Refugio’, we offer a long-stay ‘Immersion’ program lasting 26 days.  Immersion Programs begin the first day of every 12 day retreat and finish the last day of the 12 day retreat that follows.  Please refer to our calendar for retreat dates.  For bookings of 25 nights or more, the cost is reduced to US$120 per night.  As we run ayahuasca ceremonies 14 times per immersion you will have the opportunity to take your healing and learning to new levels during your long stay with us.
