At a time in my life when I needed a place to escape to, learn about myself and heal some emotional wounds; the rainforest healing center was and still is everything I needed and more. From the moment of arrival where we were smudged by Juan the Curandero at the gates, I knew this was the place where I could be accepted for who I am and that my intuition in choosing the correct place was spot on. All the facilitators Eren,Muri and Karin do an exceptional job in providing the passengers as much support as is needed in a beautifully caring manner before,during and after the ceremonies.the smiles and kindness i felt when being tucked under my blanket after the ceremoniesclosed will stay with me forever and bring a fuzzy happy feeling when I look back.
Omar is a marvelous man of the highest magnitude, such warmth and wisdom eminates from his soul and it is infectious, he makes people feel good and I enjoyed our one to one moments where he really helped me visualize ways of fighting off negativities,to be a strong warrior of light and to love myself. The last words I said to him were “wow, that is quite the place you have there” to which he replied ” it’s quite a place we all have there including you”
Juan the shaman is such a beacon of light, he is so humble and down to earth and truly powerful during ceremonies, I felt like I was part of his flock and he was a cosmic shepherd guiding us on our journey and preventing us from straying too far whilst giving us all time to focus on our individual journey, truly phenomenal.
The jungle itself and the grounds of the Center are absolutely beautiful, I really felt as though,just being there alone was worth every penny, the opportunity to reconnect with nature and to feel it’s embrace was one of the most amazing feelings,it rekindled my childlike fascination with the world, looking at bugs and plants that I had only ever seen on wildlife dicumentaries and being amazed. The pure sound of the jungle rocked me to the deepest of sleeps with ease.
Everything about the experience from the food lovingly prepared by maria,time in a nurturing environment,encounters with amazing animals,refreshing bucket showers,beautiful tambo’s to sleep in and a sense of awe at mother nature’s intelligence made this an unforgettable experience that has given me the strength to rise up with strong roots to take on this new chapter in my life. I want to thank everybody at chakra alegria de amor for all your kindness,beauty,wisdom and passion for what you do. I have already made leaps and bounds since returning to the UK.
This isn’t just a place where you come and go, this is a place where you feel like you are part of the family and madre Ayahuasca is the ever loving and guiding spirit that looks after all members in the way that she chooses and deems necessary.
