Meditate on the boiling river, journey into the spirit realms, and connect with like-minded individuals. This retreat is perfect for women interested in using the ancient plant medicine Ayahuasca to travel deep into self and explore higher consciousness. Sisterhood and Mother Nature are the foundation of this experience as we honor the ancient way of living and tap into the Divine Feminine in her purest form.
Ayahuasca originated in the Amazon rainforest and has been used by indigenous tribes for thousands of years. It is universally known as la purga- the purge- in South America for its ability to cleanse the body not only of illness but also of negative energies and emotions built up over the course of one’s life. Many have experienced profound emotional, spiritual, and indeed miraculous physical healings subsequent to working with Ayahuasca. The visionary aspects of Ayahuasca are well known as the medicine produces some very powerful and unique psychedelic experiences. It is here where much of the healing work can be done under the guidance of a Shaman whose role is to travel and collect knowledge in these visionary realms to aid a person’s journey to healing and wholeness.
Lovingly slow brewed in the ancient technique, this Ayahuasca tea is composed of only two plants: Chacruna (psychotria viridis) and Ayahuasca (banisteriopsis caapi). The Ayahuasca vine is rich in harmala alkaloids (MAIO inhibitors) that block the digestion of the DMT bearing Chacruna plant. This synergistic tea allows for potentially spectacular psychosomatic effects: aural, tactile, and strong visionary experiences that expand consciousness in various ways: revealing hidden realms and possibly past lives, connecting one with spirits and past relatives, and catalyzing deep healings in multiple levels of body and soul.
The Ayahuasca vine is first cut into short lengths, macerated, and layered with Chacruna leaves and then simmered over hours in a specially designated cooking pot until the water has evaporated, producing a thick bitter brown tea with an unforgettable taste. Preparation of the
Ayahuasca must be performed by an experienced Ayahuasquero– as the subtle brew can be affected by the energies that surround it in its preparation.
I do not recommend this retreat to anyone who has a medical history of psychosis, is pregnant, or breastfeeding.
