I’m not really sure what to think about this experience.
Erik and Nilda are WONDERFUL. They are genuinely interested in your well-being and growth, and do everything they can to help you prepare and, later, integrate what you experienced into your life. Theirs is a small group experience, which was ideal for me. The center is beautiful, spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well-maintained. Even when I examine my time with them closely I can find nothing I would change.
But what I went looking for, a better understanding of the Spirit World, I did not find. Perhaps my search was not well enough articulated. Perhaps I did not even know what it was I wanted. It could even be that the message was given and I am just now beginning to be ready to receive it.
There is a unique fullness of the Spirit in the Sacred Valley. This in itself is enough to draw me back. I’ve worshipped all over the world and never found anything approaching what is here.
My message to anyone considering this experience would be to prepare yourself. Physically and spiritually. Clearly define exactly what you want to get out of it. Your intentions must be as exact as you can make them. Ayahuasca is not a toy, something to take recreationally. It can save you, or it can damage you. It’s more powerful than you think.
