Join me (Johanne), a Reiki enthusiast, for a journey of self-discovery as we explore this wonderful healing art and its amazing possibilities. Dedicate four days to discover a new and delightful ability in yourself.

"When you heal yourself and assist others with their self-healing you heal the Earth. You do make a difference."

- Laurel Steinhice, Channeling the Earth Mother (in D.Stein, Essential Reiki).

I invite you to partake in this Reiki retreat which consists of attunement to the first level of Reiki to learn to heal with your hands. Offer yourself the wonderful opportunity to learn and share the Usui Reiki system which is a simple, non-invasive healing system that balances the body's energy centers thus promoting healing. It is one of the easiest and most natural forms of holistic healing there is.

"My most important discovery with Reiki was that it actually worked. It was tangible (I could feel a sensation in my palms) and I got results (often an incredible before-and-after effect)... Reiki goes well beyond what I expected when it was introduced as an ‘energy healing practice’. Or, maybe, my understanding was simply too limited – after all, energy really means that everything is interconnected and can move and transform. Healing doesn’t just apply to the physical, but includes a complete holistic view. And Reiki is not just a therapy but indeed a personal spiritual practice."

- Reiki master Torsten Alexander Lange

Reiki is not taught in the usual sense; it cannot be learned from a book or self-taught but is transferred by the Reiki Master to the student through the attunement or initiation (attune means harmony and initiate means ceremony) process via a simple ceremony which is repeated at intervals over the course of the retreat. The ability to channel Reiki is then with you for life and the more you work with it, the more you will be amazed at its inspiring power.

This 4 day / 3 night program is a wonderful all-inclusive option which offers each participant the opportunity to soak in Reiki energy and just "be" in order to become more in touch with it so that it can flow more freely through you and your life.

Two yoga and guided meditation sessions, delicious healthy vegetarian meals and free time to enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings will assist you in your Reiki attunement process.

This program is for anyone who wishes to be introduced to Reiki in a calm and beautiful environment. It is possible to gain your first level (out of three) in a short time. You will be able to channel Reiki healing to yourself and to others before the end of this retreat!

The Reiki attunement is a special spiritual experience. Being a Reiki Master, Johanne has the pleasure and privilege of initiating others to Reiki. The term "master" does not mean that one has suddenly become enlightened - it means that one is able to teach and attune others in the Reiki healing energy. You are bound to appreciate this relaxed, enjoyable, and professional course.

During the retreat the main emphasis is on practical experience so you may find your confidence in the amazing power of Reiki, and witness its life changing potential. There will be great attention on you developing your own personal and individual skills, as well as your theoretical knowledge of Reiki. You will learn the hand positions of self-healing, along with techniques for treating others. You will also learn to channel energy to heal any situation. Immensely versatile, Reiki can be applied to all aspects of life, on a daily basis.

    Internet access?

    At Tambo Ilusión, we live in a low electromagnetic field area and pride ourselves of offering a digital detox experience to our guests thus there is no Wi-Fi service available.

    To have some access to the internet, guests can plan ahead and make an arrangement with their cell phone supplier about an international plan before their departure for Peru or purchase a prepaid SIM card at the airport in Lima but the quality of the connection on the land is not great. Also, there is Internet service in town, a 10 minute mototaxi drive from Tambo Ilusion.

    At Tambo Ilusion, it is possible to send a quick email to your loved ones to let them know you arrived safely and to make your check-in the day before your flight.


    We are located in the Amazon rainforest at an altitude of 400 meters above sea level. At times there are few mosquitos and at other times, there can be a lot, especially at sun down. It is recommended to wear long-sleeved, light colored, loose fitting shirts and pants, a light scarf, and socks, especially at the end of the day when mosquitoes are more active. When going into the forest, it is highly recommended to wear clothing that covers most of your body, keeping as much of your skin covered as possible.

    Always carry insect repellent (biodegradable if possible).

    The incidence dengue in the Tarapoto area is extremely low. There are no required vaccinations nor the need for malaria medication for the Tarapoto area.  There is no malaria or yellow fever in this area.

      Quality of the Experience
      I enjoyed staying at Tambo Ilusion as Armando has conserved and created a Jungle sanctuary that nourished my soul. Johannes yoga was gentle and very effective along with her Reiki was extremely relaxing. Johanne is an incredible cook and her love of food was evident because the food was absolutely divine!! I am still salivating. It was simple but very tasty. Johanne also holds space that is safe to be open and vulnerable and feeling comfortable and accepted. I absolutely love her passion and quest for knowledge. Beyond attending Johannes retreats, I would recommend her cookbook

      The retreat itself is nestled in a perfect part of Tarapoto, not too far from the city but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of motortaxis and the plaza.

      I was welcomed with open arms by Johanne, her husband Armando and Daniel and Gabriela who looked after the meals and additional services.

      I travelled from Australia and wasn’t sure what to expect. But my time there was relaxing, rewarding and I feel I left with a great sense of clarity that I had been searching for.

      I completed the Level 1 Reiki initiation which was informative and really helped me understand the principles to go forth and practice on myself, friends and family. I can’t wait to return! There is definitely a special kind of magic about Peru and you’ll certainly experience it at Tambo Ilusion.
