Iquitos and Urubamba in Peru
My son and I went to Arkana Spiritual centre in the scared valley Peru. I can’t begin to tell you want an amazing time we had. We went on spiritual journey that took us both to the most unexpected places. I of course can only really speak of my journey and how I learned more about myself in that week than in my whole 56 years on this earth.
It all started with me asking my son if he wanted to trek Machu Picchu with me of the Easter break. He had other ideas and asked if we could go to a retreat in the scared Valley Called Arkana Spiritual Centre. Part of this was to do the Ayahuasca Ceremony, which I had never heard of, but I trusted my son and was willing to give it ago.
On our arrival to Arkana Spiritual Centre nestled next to the Urubamba River amongst the beautiful Andean Mountains, we were welcome by the staff and some local ladies with lamas in tow, for an Aussie this was very surreal. The moment I arrived, I felt very calm the staff were just wonderful and the food was so much more than I expected it was sensational.
So the first night we did the Ayahuasca Ceremony I had no idea what to expect, I was surprisingly calm the staff and especially the shamans made you feel that way. When I took the plant base medicine I was very relaxed the shaman start to sing and I was transported. What I saw and felt is for me and I really can’t explain the journey I took, but I can say that night was the start of my life changing. The following nights of doing the Ayahuasca Ceremony did really three main things for me.
1. Showed me what is holding me back from true happiness
2. How to get rid those things
3. It gave me clear directions for my life.
I can’t explain how it works, but doing the Ayahuasca Ceremony revealed to me how we are all interconnected with each other and with every other living creature and plant. The amazing thing is the shaman’s singing is calming, you feel the vibrations of the song going through you, calming you, directing you. As I said before it was the most amazing experience I have ever had, and how luck was I to have this experience with my son.
The Arkana Spirutal Centre is very professional, providing a very safe environment for all those that attend. I would recommend this to anyone who feels lost who wants to reconnect to their spirituality. I personally can’t wait for my next experience
