Ayahuasca — a Powerful Drink

The ayahuasca brew has been used for thousands of years. It is a traditional spiritual medicine for the indigenous people living in the Amazon Jungle. It used to be taken by native people, but now, tourists from different parts of the world come to Peru to experience the powers of this mystical drug.

Working with ayahuasca is a very complex procedure, and it is not something that you can do sitting in a kitchen. One of the core elements is the presence of an experienced shaman. Taking ayahuasca can be a powerful healing experience. People have told about spiritual revelations, a new perception of life, and other effects. They have gone the way of light! Both physical and mental purification is a goal of the ayahuasca ritual.

People come to Peru or other countries for the following purposes:

  • fighting addiction;
  • discovering self;
  • managing aggressiveness
  • treating diseases, such as cancer.

During ayahuasca retreats, you can experience vivid hallucinations. The effects will last for up to 8 hours. 

Ayahuasca brew is made from different plant medicines growing in Peru. There are common effects people have after using the drink. Vomiting is the most common one. It is also possible to have diarrhea and an increased heart rate. Also, it is essential to be well-prepared to the ayahuasca ritual to avoid any possible harmful effects. For instance, the use of other drugs may lead to serious side effects. Therefore, it is essential to get prepared and go through the exciting ayahuasca ritual under the supervision of experienced people.

About the Ceremony

The ceremonies are carried out in a small group of 5-20 people. Usually, they are conducted at night, but it is also possible to undergo through them during the day. There are no two identical ayahuasca rituals, and each of them depends on many factors. 

However, each of the ayahuasca ceremonies is conducted to allow one to face the gifts of Mother Ayahuasca.

The following are the typical stages of the ritual:

  • The participants are seated in a circle. A shaman (curandero) is in the center;
  • Ayahuasca tea is given to each participant;
  • The shaman starts singing a special song (icaros);
  • The participants experience the effects of the ayahuasca drink (such as vomiting) within 15 minutes;
  • The shaman may use tobacco smoke to stimulate the olfactory senses;
  • The participants begin going through a purification procedure.

The jungle is the most common place to drink ayahuasca tea. Also, people come to centers located in Iquitos, Tarapoto, and other places in Peru.

All the healers we work with come from families with a long history of shamanism. Also, they have many years of experience in conducting ayahuasca ceremonies, using ancient traditions and methods. 

Only the most effective and safe plant medicines from the Peruvian Amazon are used, including Ayahuasca (a South American liana), San Pedro (a cactus) and other plant medicines. Each plant medicine is carefully chosen for a certain ayahuasca ritual and its participants. In fact, many people prefer to have both Ayahuasca and San Pedro’s ceremonies, where they can discover the powers of the plants growing throughout the Andes.

In order to determine the right dose of the drink for each participant during ayahuasca ceremonies, a collaborative effort of a shaman and doctor is required. It is an essential part of the preparation work. Many different factors will be taken into account to determine the right dosage for you, including your age, overall health condition, psychological state of mind, weight and height, diseases, and others.
