If you are curious about experiencing Ayahuasca, then your journey has already begun. I highly recommend that you book a retreat with the incredible staff at Pisatahua.
The Ayahuasca ceremonies that I have taken part in have had an overwhelmingly positive and transformative impact on my life. I am witness to it’s incredibly ability to heal, give peace and help the drinker find their best path to fuller and happier life. My time at Pisatahua connected me to my most powerful experiences and emotions, and allowed me to access new ideas and connections and make peace with my past. The ceremonies also gave me beautiful visions and intense feelings of love and joy. It did, however, take three ceremonies for me to experience the full effects of the medicine. This is why a longer retreat is the perfect way for people to try Ayahuasca for the first time.
The retreat setting in the Bolivian amazon was breathtaking. The accommodations were incredible. The staff were passionate about their work and wanted to ensure that everybody had the best possible experience. From the very beginning, they were friendly, helpful and were happy to answer all of my questions. The Shaman was experienced, intuitive and knowledgeable and we were able to meet him before hand at a very detailed information session. The retreat was particularly helpful for me because some of other information I had read about Ayahuasca was very “wishy-washy.” That was not the case here, and we looked at the science of the plants and their historical and cultural uses.
The retreat took place in a remote setting in the Amazon where we could drink the Ayahuasca under the full moon. It started with a traditional Bolivian ceremony to honour Pachamama (mother earth). We had a small group of 8 people which was the perfect size. After we drank, everybody had a comfortable place to lie and there was always somebody there to help if you needed it. The Ayahuasca itself gave me hours of beautiful and powerful visions, that will stay with me for a long time. The next morning we always shared a delicious breakfast where the group discussed their experiences.
If you are in Bolivia and thinking about trying Ayahuasca, you can definitely trust Pisatahua to give you a safe and supportive experience.
