"This experience is so amazing."

See what people are saying about their time at Finca Ambiwasi.

What people are saying:


“I have experienced a let go of so much dark energy I realized I hadn’t had access to. I had work with medicine in the past but not in this profoundly deep way. I was able to release repressed trauma and emotions related to the female lineage story I had been carrying that I believe was the cause of this cancer. I learned through the yage, deeper ways to heal myself and to source that deep connection to the female divinity inside, in the deepest ways I have ever experienced in my life.”

“Having been on a spiritual path for 20 years, yoga, meditation, cleansing, medicines and self inquiry none of it offered me the level of healing that I have experienced with the yage, Tatia Juan, all the other Taitas and the loving family that surrounds him. In short, this path, this work, this culture has given me back my life and rebirthed my soul in way I never could have imagined.”

“Wow! I expected good things from this retreat but I never expected the healing to be this profound, thorough and deep… I feel I have been set free! Happiest I have ever been in my whole life!”

“I came here with no expectations, and this experience has exceeded anything I could have imagined. I have had the most healing 10 days here I think I’ve ever had in my life…..I feel a sense of peace and joy in my spirit like never before and I’m excited to move forward in a good, graceful, more whole way.” – Alixandra Claman 1/31/15

“I don’t even know where to begin. Thank you, thank you, thank you eternally for all the growth, change and transformation…..I have been calling in an elder and teacher who walks the medicine path with righteousness and wisdom for some time now, and Juanito is just that. I thank him eternally for all the healing that has taken place.”

Mariah 1/31/15

“Taita Juanito has healed me in ways I never imagined possible. I have no words that could fully express the gratitude that I feel. I have been working with the medicine for around a year and a half now, and have never experienced the deep healing that I did here. Anyone that is able to work with Taita Juanito will be forever blessed, he is the real deal!!! Thank you with every little bit of my being.”

Gillian 1/31/15

“Everything here is potential healing – The food, service, saunas, sweat lodges, yoga, meditation, bonfires and ceremonies are abundantly from a source of unconditional love. This place and these people will always keep an opening in my heart.”

Keiko 1/31/15

“I can comfortably say how grateful I was to put my trust in him. His (Taita Juanito) knowledge, wisdom and experiences are the reason why I am going to make a difference in this world. Fantastic person and fantastic spiritual leader. “

Working with Healers from Colombia has been the greatest blessing in my Spiritual and Life Path.  After 12 practicing Ayurveda professionally, Yoga in many different paths, deep Meditation techniques such as Vipassana as well as many different healing techniques like Pranic Healing, Reiki, Rising Start Healing Method, Shamanism in several traditions (Maka Wi, Munay Ki, Holtej) and Pranayamas for years in a row, I had never experience such liberation and consciousness before until I started working with the Inga and Siona Traditions from the Amazonian Colombia, specifically Taita Juanito and the Grandfather Taita Laureano. 

Yagé or Ayahuasca is just unreal, unbelievable.  It keeps surprising me more and more.  I am starting to grasp how the Healers work through the medicine to clear and clean our past and present from traumas and believe systems and the best of all is how the medicine at the same time allows me to learn and gain the wisdom little by little.

Taita Juanito is by far, the best teacher I have had. The reason why I follow him is because I had never met a man that was like him, which means: fully compassionate, very wise, clear, extremely hard working, direct, strong, and awesome healer and still a normal man.  Most of the teachers in yoga, qigong or ayurveda that I have had, lacked something, normally it was that aspect of being in God, which is a quality that is gained with the Medicine. 

If I could say what is the best thing I have gained from working with the Medicine and the Taitas I would say: understanding God and learning what it means to be in God and finally having my life organized and my mind clear and silent. Now, all the practices I keep doing, yoga, meditation, pranayamas, ayurveda are easily understood, I now know why I have to do them and when. Yagé and the Healers took me out of the rat race. 

I would recommend coming to Colombia and doing medicine anywhere but only with serious Healers that have a path. I have followed Taita Juanito and the Grandfather for 3 years now and I am fully confident that these Shamans are top of the line.  

Many blessings to all,

The retreat was wonderful, it was an incredible experience, a great teaching on humbleness, consciousness and love.  I now feel with peace and joy that arises from the deepest part of my heart.  I had a situation happening to me recently, that in the past would had created lots of anxiety and sadness, instead I was able to deal with it with tranquility and calmness, which makes me feel happier.  I am very grateful for being able to go visit the Healers in Colombia and receive these very powerful healings that changed and keep changing my life.  

The music of Juan David is something I cannot describe, it is simply amazing, so beautiful.  

Thank you to everyone that was involved in this Divine experience and for the organizers for creating this retreat.  Infinite gratefulness to God, Taita Juanito, The Grandfather Laureano for bringing this Light to my Heart.

The 2014 ultimate retreat (as I call it), put me back on baby's stages.  I feel like a reset button was pressed and I started my new, cleaned, healed me! I feel more love in my heart, compassionate to others, more patient for things that I'd of lost it before in certain situations, more relaxed and with a promissory future, knowing that I have created a direct channel with God and mother Earth for healing myself, family, friends or anybody or situation. ‎ Thanks Jenny for inviting me, best decision of my life was joining you guys in this year's retreat! Besos!

Taita Juanito and the Grandfather Laureano are wonderful healers and men of good heart, and they truly care for the people who come to their ceremonies. After 13 years of extensive experience in the search of healers and healing methods for my health and consciousness, I always look at the personal qualities of the healers because I find that the best and safest healing is when the Healer is in integrity and of good heart.

Since 2012, I have done already 35 ceremonies from 2 retreats in Colombia with Taita Juanito and the Grandfather Laureano; and ceremonies in Costa Rica and Mexico with Juanito. The healing and consciousness that I have achieved with them have been the most effective that I have received among many other great healing paths. It is just amazing!

Thank you and many blessings,

Working with these Healers and their medicines has completely changed my life.  Fears, angers, depression, lack of clarity and just lack of wishing to live are leaving me. I just cannot find them within me any more.  It is incredible.  Seriously, I will continue joining all these retreat, my life is just getting better and better by the day.  I am so grateful for all the healing received and all the love given by the Taitas families and their extraordinary strong healings.  Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Seriously, thank you.

Hi, my name is Vivian.  It is a little difficul to write about my experience in Colombia.  Sharing with all the people that were there, all the amazing healing ceremonies with Taita Juanito and the Grandfather.  In a few words, this is the very best that my Celestial Father has given me, with the Sacred Plant, the Chanting, the Signing, particularly the Musician Juan David and all the unconditional love of all these wonderful beings I not just healed my body, Spirit and Soul but I know I am now very happy, my life has changed, I had a consciousness expansion towards a Real Spirituality.  May God bless you all very much.

Everything was amazing.  This was the most amazing healing experience in my entire life.  I will never be the same.  I came with joint problems and some serious character issues and I still remember the Grandfather healing them.  The ceremonies were incredible, beautiful and these men are so powerful and beautiful.  They work and work and never stop.  The sweatlodges hit the button really, they assisted me in changing deeper.  The food was just what we needed.  Everybody was so willing to assist.  Really if you wish to learn about this path this is the way to go.  I highly recommend this to everybody that wishes to bring happiness, power, clarity and understanding as well as inner and physical health to their lives.  

I will never be the same, everything has changed for the very best.

Living the ceremonies with Taita Juanito and Grandfather Laureano has left me with an Inner Peace that I never knew existed.  Besides the beauty of seeing enlightened beings and how they share their wisdom with humbleness, they give a huge example to humanity, I feel very blessed for having met them.

It was a very Spiritual and Healing experience.  Now my life is full of Peace and I am very grateful with the Universe for allowing me to reach this point in my life where the vision of my path to healing has widen with the ceremonies and this amazing, full of Light beings. 

Thank you very much for showing this path.
