Hi lonelytrooper,

I am deeply sorry you did not enjoy your experience here. I would like to comment on a couple things- for one our ceremonies have never cost as much as you claim- it is $400 for 4 days and 2 ceremonies with Ayahuasca. For 2 nights of ceremonies it would be $200. Additionally we discounted you $50 on two ceremonies, gave you discounts on other things as well, and drove you to town many times for free.

Often people do not have visions during the experience with Ayahuasca. Many people do, but some do not. For some this is not what they need in this moment. This was your first experience with sacred plants so with time and more experience you will learn this is true. Also your attitude during the retreat was not someone looking for healing, but you referred to these sacred plants as drugs and getting “high.” They are to heal and with them I clean my guests; I do not sell drugs.

I apprenticed for years in the jungle with Shuar shamans and in the mountains with respected native shamans of the Andes with San Pedro and Wilka. I studied for years and then gave free ceremonies for 10 years to Ecuadorians before asking payment. In total I have given ceremonies for 23 years.

Again, I am very sorry. We did not ask you to stay for 3 weeks after your retreat ended, especially if you were not happy here. We wish you all the best in your life.

Liliana,

It is obvious you are deeply hurt. Your accusations are lies, however. We have never harassed anyone, and absolutely no one has ever been sexually assaulted as you claim. I would like to explain that this person was a volunteer. They were very difficult to work with- talking negatively to guests, complaining in front of guests about how things are run here, and not doing their job of cleaning rooms, kitchen and cooking. The money for volunteers is the minimum to cover their own food per week, which they agree to pay before coming here. We had to ask them to leave early and I believe for this reason they are seeking some sort of revenge.

We wish you peace in your heart. Blessings.
