More information

Day-to-day life of an urban resident is full of stresses, it provokes disconnection between the closest people, separating person from natural habitat. The endless train of daily pursuits overshadows the perspective and sense. Simple change of scenery is not always enough. We welcome you to retreat in our centre where you will be able to become a part surrounding harmony of environment, meditate away from the urban hustle and receive support of your internal recovery processes. For many years our shamans help local people and people of European Culture. Being able to completely understand patients’ problems and answer any questions, they will help to correctly interpret and integrate the experience gained during ayahuasca ceremonies. In addition, during the retreat you will receive the necessary psychological and organisational support from the programme coordinators.

The experienced curanderos of Moyano Centre are capable of healing patients suffering from psychological, emotional disorders (depressions, phobias, post-traumatic disorders) and various somatic diseases. Human body is an integral system. Disharmony in lifestyles and thoughts often leads to disfunctions of immune, endocrine and nervous systems causing symptoms of diseases in any organ. Retreat in our Centre is an opportunity to detoxify body on physical and energy level, launch self-repair processes. It is impossible to predict how the retreat in our centre would change your life: not infrequently patients come to cure body disbalance, but they receive much more.

Our Centre comprises curanderos from the legendary shaman dynasty: a world-famous Peruvian shaman, leader of Shipibo-Conibo community Guillermo Arevalo, his mother and children as well as other healers having long-standing experience of shaman diets and work with patients. Mastery of strong shaman being on the side of Light is the prerequisite to achieving the healing goals and foundation for safety of ayahuasca ceremonies. Shaman identifies the causes of patient’s problems and sets out how many procedures are required to address them. If during ceremonies patients get unpleasant or frightening experience, shaman would help them to make it through avoiding traumas and learning lessons for the future. Shaman is patient’s guide and defender in the world of spirits where regular person can be vulnerable.

Ayahuasca Diet Information

We respect patients’ rights for taking decisions related to their health. Decision to undergo a retreat in our Centre implies responsibility for compliance with the recommendations on preparing for and participating in ayahuasca ceremonies. Effectiveness and safety of rituals with Amazon plants depend on it. It is important to understand that compliance with the diet requirements during the retreat is not just respect to traditions and the age-old wisdom of shamans, but the essential condition for your wellbeing.

FOOD RESTRICTIONS

It is recommended to observe the following restrictions not less than 7 days prior to the beginning and during the retreat. Patients should abstain from alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, coffee, chocolate, red meat, canned food and any food containing preservatives, chemical additives (E) and food colourants, spicy food and carbonated drinks. Moderation in consumption of sugar and salt is required. Pork is strictly prohibited as it is contraindicative to ayahuasca. Presence of the above products in the ration creates additional body burden, complicating and making unpleasant the processes of cleansing gastro-intestinal tract and patient’s energies.

RECOMMENDED FOOD

Our Centre serves food best adapted to the requirements of a diet with sacred power plants. It is recommended to eat only natural (organic) food products. During preparation to the retreat you must be nourished adequately. White meat: poultry and nonpredatory fish are much recommended. Raw fruit and vegetables are welcomed in moderate amounts. Light thermally processed food is preferable during the diet.

In the evening, the day before ayahuasca ceremony, adequately nutritious dinner is recommended. On the day of the ceremony light breakfast is only possible, during the day only water is allowed.

REJECTION OF MEDICATIONS

Prior to and during the retreat you must reject taking any medications: pharmaceutical products, biologically active supplements and vitamins. Taking anti-depressants is inconsistent with ayahuasca: breach of this restriction may result in harmful consequences for the human body, even fatal. Other medications, such as antibiotics, hormones, oral contraceptives must be excluded, since chemically synthesized substances can be toxic in combination with natural medicines (have side effects); and approach of traditional medicine to the human body as the unity of the body, soul and spirit runs counter to the approaches of the official medicine.

If you have to take some medicine for life or proceed with the treatment implying long term systematic medication intake, please let us know.

CONTRAINDICATIONS TO TAKING AYAHUASCA

Strict contraindications for reasons of health are determined by risks to life under the following conditions:

  • Pregnancy
  • Cardiac surgeries and use of usage cardiac pacemakers
  • Hypertension, infarction or blood-stroke in past history
  • Recent (less than 3 months ago) surgery on gastro-intestinal tract
  • Mental illnesses (schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder etc.)

If you doubt the allowability of taking ayahuasca with your disease, please send us your medical documents for review. It’s useful to keep in mind that traditional Shipibo medicine makes it possible to treat patients without use of ayahuasca. You can attend ceremonies without taking ayahuasca as well as undergo diets with other master plants.

There are restrictions on the participation in the ceremonies of women during menstrual cycle due to the increased psychophysical and spiritual vulnerability of women during this period.

Healing Technique

We recommend abstaining from any sexual activities including masturbation at least two days prior to the beginning of and during the retreat. Failure to do so impacts the sensibility to the contacts with master plants and entails the need for additional energy cleansing procedures. Psychological preparation is very important for ayahuasca ceremonies. Prior to the retreat it is recommended to focus more on those consciousness support techniques, physical and spiritual practices which are common for you. Prayers, meditation, yoga and other harmonizing activities, if done regularly, will contribute to the most effective course of the retreat. Refrain as much as possible from excessive internet surfing, communication in social networks, watching entertaining and news channels and everything else that can distract you from preparing to the retreat.

Please try to make sure that your consciousness prior to and during the retreat is focused on the feelings of love, respect, compassion, unity with the surrounding people and nature. It is important to be ready for the deep work with your inner world, self-enquiry, openness for new experience and leaving the comfort zone.

During the retreat our shamans will help you to better comprehend your place in this world and life objectives, however, nothing would substitute your own reflection in an effort to define what you want from the ayahuasca retreat and what you are ready to change in your life after its completion.
