Calca, Cusco, Perú
Sapan Inka was my first Ayahuasca experience. I loved it, just like I love mushrooms. The colorful visuals and intense body high combined with Erik and Nilda’s beautiful Amazon song were a perfect blend. Also, I definitely had medicinal breakthroughs, quickly analyzing and resolving personal troubles from my childhood and early adulthood.
First night is intimidating so you may feel mentally and physically confused. The second night is sensational and very relaxing. I didn’t realize the shaman (Erik + Nilda) take Ayahuasca drink before giving to anyone else. This makes sense and helps them connect with where we (guests) are at in each phase of the 2 hour high.
Location and facility couldn’t be better. Isolated in the Sacred Valley 2 hours from Cusco, below a large waterfall, and quick access to solitude. Food and accommodation was great.
If you are nervous about what to expect, know that Erik’s questionnaire (emailed to you prior to the retreat) is taken very seriously. Erik study’s it and talks through it with you prior to taking Ayahuasca.
Overall a fun and enlightening experience. +No bugs!
