Selva Madre Retreat Center invites you to embark on a transformative journey through our master plant diets, which hold profound beauty and life-changing gifts for those committed to their path. By maintaining strict adherence to the dieta restrictions and embracing the profound wisdom of the master plants, remarkable transformations and revelations can manifest in your life. Selva Madre Retreat Center provides master plant diets that span a minimum of 10 days, although longer durations are highly encouraged for optimal results. To ensure a more secluded experience, we have three dedicated huts on a separate property exclusively for dieters. It is essential to approach the master plant dieta with utmost seriousness and commitment, as its impact on your overall well-being can be significant. We kindly request that you approach this work with deep respect and dedication, both for yourself, the maestros, and for the plants involved.


Each master plant dieta entails specific restrictions that must be strictly adhered to. These include abstaining from salt, sugar, dairy, caffeine, alcohol, and sexual activities.


Ayahuasca ceremonies, while optional, can be included at the discretion of the dieters.


The master plants available for dieta include:

  • Oje (Ficus insipida)

  • Pinon blanco (Jatropha curcas)

  • Ajo sacha (Mansoa alliacea)

  • Chiric sanango (Brunfelsia grandiflora)

  • Chuchuhuasi (Maytenus)

  • Renaquilla (Clusia rosea)

  • Bobinsana (Calliandra angustifolia)

  • Cordoncillo (Piper adundum)


In certain cases, Maestro Lucho may determine the specific plant you will diet based on your intake information before your arrival. However, in many instances, a meeting with the Maestro will be required to finalize this decision. To begin the application process for the master plant dieta, please visit our designated application page. We acknowledge the significance of this journey and are committed to supporting your growth and transformation throughout this profound experience.
