Dr. Dennis McKenna (brother of the late Terence McKenna) referred me to this center, and I’m so grateful that he did. What Parign Hak lacks in Western “creature comforts”, in makes up for in every other possible way. First off, it’s one of the few (if only) ayahuasca centers located in Manu National Park. Any nature buff will know that this is a biodiversity hotspot, and I can’t imagine anywhere on Earth with MORE life crammed into it. If you love seeing plants and animals, this is the place to go. The ayahuasquera Jessica worked as a tour guide there for years, and could easily identify everything we encountered on the multiple beautiful jungle hikes we went on. The ceremonies were small, with only a handful of other participants. Jessica’s near 20 years experience as an ayahuasquera clearly shines through during these times. I’ve never felt more comfortable around an ayahuasquera(o), and she’s incredibly easy to talk to. Humble, kind, and with an remarkable sense of humor. She’s completely fluent in English too! This makes integrating the experiences so much easier. On top of all that, the center works closely with the surrounding community. You learn about the indigenous Harakbut people, their culture, food, history etc. It’s incredibly respectful to the native population, to the point where locals sit in the ceremonies to receive healing work from Jessica. If you’re looking to experience deep, safe, and transformational work with Ayahuasca, in the miraculous rainforest from which it originated, this is THE place.
