Iquitos and Urubamba in Peru
I spent two weeks at Arkana Sacred Valley in February 2019 in which I had the most profound and life saving experience! It would not have been possible with out my beautiful familia I met at Arkana; from my brothers and sisters that healed with me, the Shipibo shamans, the loving facilitators and staff that ran daily activities/outings, the staff in the kitchen that made glorious meals to support la dieta(always made sure I had enough vegan options), the staff sweeping the red stairs each morning that greeted me with authentic smiles and those that provided prompt room cleaning and laundry services.
I have pure gratitude and so much love for all involved at Arkana!! The shamans and facilitators genuinely care about you as it is evident in the unconditional love that is felt as they prepare and guide you in working with mother Ayahuasca. They guided me to trust in the divine path with mother aya, to letting go and opening up to the healing process but most importantly they helped me see the divine within myself to trust in my inner strength to continue onward in life.
I’m in complete awe and in tears of how the medicine continues to work with me daily as well as in my dreams!!! I’m grateful for everyone that was apart of my experience, muchas gracias!! It is as though I came back with new eyes/perspective for life, reborn as new and I’m finally able to see the path that was laid out for me in this lifetime. My 70 year old dad is completely blown away by my experience and is even interested in pursuing his own journey here. If there is something inside of you calling for this inner journey, trust and listen to it! If so, I fully recommend Arkana Spiritual Center, hands down best decision you will make!
