Iquitos and Sacred Valley in Peru
I just got back from the 21 Day Total Human Transformation trip at Pulse Tours. It was amazing! This review will not be able to do it justice. The center is far away from Iquitos, which allows for a healing process undisturbed by the hustle and bustle of a city. The facilitators are all wonderful and kind people. There for us 24/7 which borders on sainthood considering the amount of trauma and pain that is healed during each ceremony. The shamans are three of the most powerful people I’ve ever met. To sing for hours on end four times a week for no other reason than to heal us is astounding. The ayahuasca. Pure magic. It works differently for everyone and the way it works for me is that it’s mainly emotional. I saw the trippy, psychedelic colors in the first week, but then they stopped, and that’s where the real work began. The feeling of being unburdened and cleaned afterwards is impossible to describe. It can only be experienced. As for the more… terrestrial aspects of Pulse. The place is cleaned everyday. The food is really good.The jungle activities are fun and the tour guide and boat driver are really nice people. And there are plenty of bathrooms.
I went there last summer for the Machu Picchu trip and after that experience it didn’t ever occur to try another center. Pulse is a loving and most importantly, safe environment for what is a very intense experience.
