Iquitos and Urubamba in Peru
I just came back from a recent visit to Arkana’s Sacred Valley location and I was blown away by the quality of the retreat. I have been drinking ayahuasca for 8 years having visited numerous retreat centers in Iquitos, and Arkana is by far the best of them all. Its biggest asset, its people, really sets them apart. From the first couple of emails where they responded to all of my questions I knew I was in the hands of people that know what they are doing and care about their guests.
Upon arrival I was greeted by Chandra, the center’s manager who is a very loving and caring medicine woman. The rest of the team, is a well balanced group of individuals who made me feel at home as part of their spiritual family. They deeply care about their guests and their overall healing experience.
The medicine is strong and is administered by Maestros Jorge and Sulmira, a lovely shipibo couple that are true masters of their craft. Their icaros led me to another dimension and helped me heal old wounds that I have been carrying with me for years.
Thank you Arkana for creating such a magical place for healing, I will come back to you with my loved ones for many years to come. Special thanks to Chandra, Felipe, Pamela, Alise, Angel, Mike, Jorge, Sulmira and Felipe for making this trip an unforgettable one.
If you are looking for a place to drink ayahuasca, look no further, these folks are the real deal. I encourage you to read past the noise of some of the reviews here and follow your intuition. These people have earned their position as the top center in the region for a reason. Im available to talk to anyone, to share more intimate details of my experience.
