Listed in Ayahuasca
All of the information given before the retreat in preparation was accurate and helpful. If anything I would advise not engaging with the locals in Iquitos at all unless you want to be harassed non stop to buy their goods. The entire Blue Morpho staff was very polite and was efficient at getting everyone from getting everyone from point A to point B. All of the food was excellent and many cool jungle activities to engage in outside of ceremonies. I will cherish the memory of seeing 5 pink dolphins forever in my mind. I felt very prepared for the ceremonies even though I wish I would have been able to have more of a say in how much ayahuasca I received. I have a high tolerance for psychedelics and I had to ask multiple times for more ayahuasca in my second ceremony. The starter dose had almost no effect on me and I had to keep convincing the staff I could handle more. I got 3 servings and asked for a 4th but they said it was too late in the evening for the 4th which I understand because they didn’t believe I would be able to hang, but I was disappointed at the time to fly all the way from California then was basically told to exercise patience. But I’m the one who payed over $2k to be there so my patience wasn’t at its highest levels. I was able to take a full cup in my third ceremony and finally got the result I was looking for. I think the biggest thing to keep in mind for anyone reading this is the shamans and ceremony assistants aren’t going to solve anything for you. Anything you learn from these experiences will be because you put in the work and effort yourself and worked your ass off. What you put into the experience is what you get out of it. Ayahuasca ceremony retreats like this through Blue Morpho are normally far out of my price range. However I f you can afford their prices, you will access a very worthy experience for anyone who has dealt with things like PTSD from overseas military deployments and other various issues with depression.
