For over a year I had planned on coming to Peru to experience Ayahuasca. I can’t recall when the spirit first called to me and how I first learned about Ayahuasca, it just kind of happened and evolved. Leading up to my travels, the more research I did on retreats and healing centres. The more confused and somewhat uncomfortable and unsure I became. Wondering if I would find the right safe space. I’m a fairly open minded individual, but traveling alone as a single female and putting myself in a very vulnerable position. Safety was of course a must. It seemed that many centres I found we’re very westernized and commercialized. I was very much seeking an authentic experience with Mother Earth and the Creator. It took me awhile and many conversations before I stumbled across La Luna.
I knew from the first conversation I had with Enrique that my soul had found the right path. La Luna is about as authentic as you can get. Nestled in the village of Santa Maria, where the residents welcome you with their smiles and gratitude for your service to them
(get involved as much as possible and give back to the village). The centre is quiet, remote and beautiful. You can’t help but embrace and soak in the jungle. It’s both beautiful and humbling. A reminder that we are all truly one. It’s rustic, clean with all you need but nothing of what you don’t need . This place is perfect to slow down and be at one with your thoughts and heart.
The staff at the centre immediately became friends and people who I openly shared my life with. Safety was no longer a concern. The Shamans are incredibly skilled. I felt so honoured to be part of their lessons and to witness and embrace the lifestyle.
The ceremonies experiences are intense, awakening and take you to a place in yourself that you likely have never visited before.
It all seems so cliché . It’s hard to put into words what you will likely are to experience. It truly is life changing a karmic cleansing.
