WELCOME TO PARIGN HAK - GRANDMA´S HOME...
Parign Hak -Grandma´s Home is a small native founded and owned retreat center, and also the home of a Harakbut-Wachiperi family from the native community of Shintuya.
It is located on the Upper Madre de Dios River in Amazonian Southeastern Peru, in between two major natural protected areas: the Manu Biosphere Reserve, one of the most biodiverse places on Earth and UNESCO heritage site, and the Amarakaeri Communal Reserve, the ancestral Harakbut homeland.
Our retreats at Parign Hak are about holistic cleansing, healing and learning for both participants AND local community folks. Contained by a local indigenous family and a stunningly beautiful natural environment, our retreats are transformational, environmentally sustainable, culturally respectful and re-affirming, highly educational, mutually beneficial and safe for both female and male participants. Stays for special interest groups can be arranged upon request.
Parign Hak - Grandma´s Home provides basic lodging in three double occupancy cabins with beds and mosquito netting. Septic latrines, and river baths or cold showers are available. Organic meals are served using local produce and river fish as much as possible.
“Jessica Bertram has been a friend and colleague for over ten years, and takes her medicine work seriously... She is a gifted ayahuasquera who, though not indigenous herself, is deeply connected through family connections to indigenous peoples in the Manu area, and draws on those sources for her medicine practice. Parign Hak-Grandma´s Home is the perfect option for those who are looking for a smaller, intimate retreat that is more affordable and well organized and executed...
I could not recommend her more highly.”
- Dr. Dennis McKenna, PhD in Ethnopharmacology
