The Intention 


The Jaguar spirit teaches you how to discover your hidden inner strength while encouraging you to embrace change without fear. They are a fierce warrior, often depicted in the feminine form of a Goddess who teaches us integrity, and how to leap gracefully from moment to moment or life to life.

Jaguar spirit is a gatekeeper to the mystical and ways of awakening your soul to its real purpose and power. If she’s calling you - you will feel it. She will purrr to you in the darkness, she will invite you into her mystery.

And when you hear her calling, you must go.

For this potent 10 day journey, you are invited to reconnect with your untameable, wild nature as we enter into the deep mystery of the Amazon Rainforest, a place where the earth speaks, and the soul listens.

This journey is intended to be an initiation, calling upon the great Jaguar spirit to walk with you, so that you may develop the strength of spirit required to propel you gracefully through life’s challenges.

Just as the snake sheds its skin as it goes through natural processes of renewal, you too, will move through various stages of cleansing, shedding and preparation, aligning your physical body, mind and spirit to move beyond the threshold that keeps you comfortable, stuck and small.


The Medicines



You will meet with the protective and cleansing medicine of Tobacco, the compassionate heart healing medicine of the Rose, the visionary medicine of the Grandmother and the wise medicine of Huachuma. As you weave with these sacred plants, you will recalibrate through the deepest levels of your being, creating balance and harmony on a cellular level, supported by two feminine and two masculine medicines, representative of the Mother, Father, Grandmother and Grandfather - creating a precious and rare opportunity to rebirth into sacred remembrance, as purified children of the Earth.


The Process



Within an intimately and integrally held container, with plenty of spaciousness for integration, connecting with like-minded individuals all on the same healing journey as you and communing with the powerful nature that surrounds you - you will inevitably move through great stages of healing and transformation.

This in-depth program has been intentionally curated with great attention to detail, with activities that support your processes with the medicines.

"Sitting down to encapsulate my  journey comes with teary eyes, goosebumps & spirits dancing praises around my body. Fine tuning into a simple paragraph could never do that time justice.Tenderly held by the jungle & profoundly protected by the spirits & ancestors of the land, thanks to the integral work & impeccable stewardship.Maja, Asdru, Harley & Juan Carlos cultivate a strong container of unconditional love & devotion to the medicine way.

They each bring their own unique gifts into ceremony, weaving through the collective with grace, compassion & precision. Showing up at just the right time; with a tender touch, a strong grounding presence, the light of a butterfly, with just the right ícaro. It’s an honor to receive their medicine, to witness their dedication to honoring the remembrance of old ways & to co-create sacred space with them.

I felt like I could curiously unfold, surrender in such a deep way. I was able to purge the weight choking my throat, burying the creative spark of my womb. I let myself be seen, in all spectrums. I let myself receive & I let healing in. I truly allowed my ~ Luminous Spirit ~ free & made lifetime connections in the process.

Muchas gracias, familia de medicina."

Preparing the Medicines and photos of the land and casitas at Inti Yacu


The land and centre: Inti Yacu


Story and Mission

Inti Yacu healing centre belongs to Juan Carlos Taminchi, who was raised in the Peruvian Amazon, immersed in a culture that still utilises plant medicine by way of the Curandero. Juan Carlos is devoted to maintaining these rituals as they have been practiced for thousands of years, and preserving the heritage of these traditions for the benefit of all with whom they share. He dedicates himself to the caretaking of sacred plants, protecting their natural habitat and reforesting them so that they can continue to heal and inspire many generations to come.

Inti Yacu is set among 37 hectares of the land that Juan Carlos and his family have been caretaking for the last 7 years, reintroducing many healing species. Amongst the medicinal plants that he has been reforesting are Ayahuxxxa, Chacruna, Chacrupanga, Chuchuwasi, Ajos Sacha, Coca, Bobinzana, Wayra Caspi, Piñón Colorado, Patiquina negra, Lupuna blanca (Ceiba Pentadra), Malva, Chiric sanango and Tobacco which he utilises for ceremonies, plant dietas and traditional Amazonian healings.

People travel from all over the world to stay at Inti Yacu for ceremonies, physical cleansing and spiritual healing, feeling the call and presence of these great plant spirits and the potent energy of this sacred land and jungle.

Accommodation & Food

Inti Yacu runs only on Solar power and rain water, with cosy cabanas set amongst the trees of the rainforest offering beautiful views out into deep green, you’ll commune with the jungle and enjoy sightings of monkeys and other animal friends, right from the place where you sleep. Each casita is built by hand with materials from the surrounding environment and comes complete with a compost toilet, whilst rain water is utilised for showering. Relax in your very own hammock by day and sleep deeply, serenaded by the sounds of the frogs, in your comfy bed by night, lit only by star and candle light.

With lovingly prepared home cooked food from Mamma Maria, you’ll enjoy locally sourced and deliciously ensembled, traditional Peruvian food in our community space.


Pucallpa is the final stop along the great Ucayali River before the Amazon jungle begins. From Pucallpa a 6 hour boat or short 30 minute flight brings you to Contamana, the nearest small town to Inti Yacu. Luckily, since we are in such a remote location, it is yet to receive an influx of tourism despite neighbouring a place of enchanting natural beauty, Sierra del Divisor National Park, a biodiverse rainforest reserve shared with Brazil. Just a short walk from Inti Yacu, the famous boiling river, which is heated by the Volcanos from the nearby mountains offers thermal bathing amid cascading jungle landscapes. With many hiking trails  to explore to mesmerising waterfalls, ancient altars and even the Jaguar’s hunting grounds, there’s plenty of places to visit by foot from Inti Yacu. Most notably, it is possible to take the winding jungle trail to the primary location in South America where the Guacamayo’s from all over Peru, Brazil and Bolivia come to feed off the natural minerals every morning.

Getting Here

We have created a detailed PDF of how to get to Inti Yacu Healing Centre, which you can find via the link below.

You will need to fly to Lima, Peru - then take an internal flight to Pucallpa. From there, your onward travel is included in your ticket. Harley and Juan Carlos will meet you to bring you to Inti Yacu via private plane or boat from Pucallpa to Contamana - followed by a 1 hour drive into the jungle.

I am eternally grateful to these beautiful people, I will be returning no doubt about it. If you or anyone you know is struggling, this is your sign. Please, we can recover. Unequivocally the greatest experience of my life thus far thanks to the entire team. Kindest and most pure souls I’ve ever met in my life. Wonderful accommodation, delicious food, soul awakening workshops and beautiful ceremonies. Peace and love. Thank you again.
