Learn How to Program Yourself for Happiness

Shamanflora, an ancient plant medicine healing center nestled in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest of Peru, is dedicated to your healing, personal growth, and enlightenment, and we are honored to guide you on your transformational journey.

As one of the only women-owned and women-led plant medicine healing centers in the world, we prioritize safety and create a nurturing environment for all. Our founder, Ximena Garcia, is a visionary woman who leads our center with profound wisdom and compassion. Our team includes a highly skilled woman Shaman, or “maestra” as we call her, and women facilitators who bring their unique perspectives and expertise to support you on your path.

Shamanflora is a sacred space where you can embrace your fears, address your health, and discover your truth. Our 120-acre (and growing!) jungle property is home to Madre Ayahuasca and her plant brothers and sisters, who offer their wisdom and guidance to those who seek it.

Our caring staff welcomes you with love as you embark on this magical journey of self-exploration and healing.  We invite you to explore our website and learn more about Shamanflora, where ancient traditions are practiced in the breathtaking setting of the Amazon Rainforest.

Our Story

Shamanflora was founded by a dedicated team of healers, shamans, and facilitators, each with a profound respect for the power and wisdom of plant medicine. Our collective experience spans decades of practice, learning, and teaching in the field of traditional healing modalities. United by our shared passion for the healing potential of the Amazon rainforest's plants and a desire to make these transformative experiences accessible to a wider audience, we established Shamanflora as a haven for those seeking personal and spiritual growth.

Our Vision

At Shamanflora, our vision is to create a sanctuary for healing, transformation, and spiritual growth. We are deeply committed to preserving and sharing the ancient wisdom of traditional plant medicine, offering life-changing experiences through Ayahuasca retreats, Kambo training, and Master Plant Diets. Our center provides a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment where individuals can embark on a journey of self-discovery, personal growth, and deep connection with the natural world.

Our Commitment

At Shamanflora, we are dedicated to providing an unparalleled experience that honors the traditions and wisdom of indigenous healing practices. We are committed to the highest standards of safety, integrity, and ethical conduct in all our offerings, ensuring that each participant is supported, nurtured, and empowered on their journey of transformation. By sharing the life-changing benefits of Ayahuasca, Kambo, and Master Plant Diets, we strive to make a lasting impact on the lives of our guests and the world at large.

Our History

Originally known as The Rainforest Healing Center, our project was born in 2006 by Omar Gomez and brought to life in 2011. Ten years later, in 2021, The Rainforest Healing Center gained a new owner, Ximena Garcia, a frequent guest and beneficiary of ancient plant and earth medicines.

Ximena’s personal journey of remarkable transformation and growth, fueled by her own experiences with plant medicine, ignited a deep desire to serve, teach, and guide others on their own path to self-discovery.  After being introduced to the center in 2020, Ximena was struck by its resemblance to a place she had seen in a vision. She eagerly signed up for a Kambo practitioner training, and Omar, the former owner,  recognizing her potential and offered her a part-time remote position.

Driven by her love for the land, the people who cared for it, and her mission to serve others, Ximena made the bold decision to purchase The Rainforest Healing Center, which she later renamed Shamanflora.

Today, Shamanflora is one of the world’s few women-owned and women-led plant medicine healing centers. Our commitment and promise to our guests is to welcome them without judgment into a safe space where they can experience new levels of healing, prosperity, and advancement in their own lives.

At Shamanflora, we are dedicated to continuing the legacy of healing and transformation that our center has offered for over a decade. With Ximena’s vision and leadership, we strive to create a nurturing and empowering environment where individuals can embark on their personal journeys with plant medicine and connect with the wisdom of the Amazon Rainforest.

We are honored to be part of your story and to support you on your path to enlightenment, growth, and self-discovery.

Our Name

It is important to highlight that Shamanflora is one of few women-owned and women-led healing centers. “Shaman” embodies the wisdom and authority of our healer, prophet, and custodian of cultural tradition. “Flora” represents the plant goddess and the indigenous plant life present in the Amazon rainforest of Peru, where our center is located. “Shamanflora” is the name we’ve chosen for the spirit of The Rainforest. Her Majesty provides us with so much life. At Shamanflora, we honor the rich heritage of plant medicine and the nurturing power of the rainforest as we guide our guests through the next chapters of their lives.


Flora was the Roman goddess of flowers, often associated with the coming of spring and the fertility of the land.
