I can’t speak highly enough of the Temple. As a first time drinker of ayahuasca I was nervous (OK, close to terrified) about plunging into my first ceremony. But I felt totally safe, reassured and cared for right from the start. The atmosphere at the Temple is really lovely and peaceful and the maestras and maestros were tremendously powerful yet gentle.
If you’re nervous about trying ayahuasca, want a retreat centre that will care for you, has good food but doesn’t mess around when it comes to the ceremonies (you get seven, which is more than many others) then I can’t recommend the Temple of the Way of Light highly enough.
Also, my luggage was lost on my journey to Peru, but the guys at the Temple helped me find it and even picked it up at Iquitos airport and brought it back for me. Nothing was too much.
It truly is a place where you’re safe to be vulnerable and let the medicine work its magic. For me it was a flawless experience. In fact, me and number of guests who were there at the same time are already planning our return trip.
