Iquitos and Sacred Valley in Peru
I’m an Army veteran who was dealing with pretty heavy PTSD-related anxiety disorder and depression. After 5 years of all-too-regular breakdowns and one too many destroyed relationships, life was feeling desperate. Numerous pharmaceuticals had failed me. I had learned about Pulse from some YouTube videos I saw a few years ago, and proceeded to slowly research what Ayahuasca was and what it could do. Then, last summer, the universe smiled on me at the exact right time, and I found myself traveling into the middle of the Peruvian jungle in seek of seek a different kind of healing. A healing that even I was still a bit skeptical about. But after 2 weeks of working with Ayahuasca under the guidance of Shaman Wiler, I found myself completely healed. It may sound hyperbolic, but – honestly – I still catch myself now, a few months later, in awe of just how much I have changed. The way this powerful medicine stimulates neuroplasticity is undeniably true. So many walls were broken down, leaving a clear and open mind, no longer plagued by negative thoughts and patterns. So many symptoms are gone and staying gone, and I am 100% medication-free now. It’s hard work, mind you, both in ceremony and throughout the integration process after returning home, but the newfound (rekindled?) senses of empathy, love, and patience I have gained were worth every ounce of physical and mental sweat. I feel that I have been given nothing short of a new lease on life. I sincerely owe so much to the entire Pulse family, and can now look forward to a more peaceful, joyful, and loving future than I thought possible just a few months ago. They have truly curated a place of love and healing down there in the jungle.
