I did the 10 day women’s retreat at the Garden of Peace in 2017 when I was 22, in the beautiful Peruvian Amazon, surrounded by trees, a river to bathe in every day. It was a time of great darkness and confusion for me. Going to Peru and embarking on the journey that is a masterplant dieta was the sole light and hope for my life. I felt safe at the Garden. I felt like the beautiful people working there knew what they were doing and that they took the work very, very seriously.
It wasn’t easy and it isn’t *the perfect place*. But it felt right for me. Even though the retreat hosts were accessible after dieta for any questions or worries, I did miss some form of aftercare at the Garden itself. Although I only realise this a year later. I’m sure the Garden is working very hard at bettering itself all the time and I recommend it to anyone interested in working with these beautiful plant medicines.
Most of all, I feel immensely grateful for my experience and am quite sure I will go back one day. Namaste 🙂
