Iquitos and Urubamba in Peru
7 Day Amazon Ayahuasca Retreat
This review is purely from my experience, and events personal to me. The results and process I undertook does not demonstrate that your experience will be similar, but it’s possible.
I came to the Arkana retreat in September with very specific intentions, to heal my heart and spirit from anger due to how I was raise as a child without any emotional love or support. As an adult my anger lead to a neurological disorder that has affected my relationships in marriage and with my children. I’ve been to counseling, books, etc. to overcome this heavy burden in my heart with no avail. I knew about Arkana from past research, but my timing to visit didn’t sync until this past September. At this point I was desperate, and hoped for relief at the retreat.
The retreat location in the Amazon jungle was idea for me, and I purchased a single occupancy for reflection and thought. The facilities, and meals were outstanding.
Let’s get to the point – The Ceremony
There were 4 Shamans with Maestra Justina as the lead. I call her Mom!
My first and second ceremonies began my healing, and completed with the third.
I had an out of body experience where the Shamans and their beautiful Icaros guided me through these wonderful and colorful ever changing geometric shapes, sizes, images, and unfamiliar dimension. Mother Justina was the one who know exactly where to penetrate my heart for healing through her Icaros. With support from the other Maestros, the surgery began during those first two amazing journeys. The third was the most challenging and horrific, I thought I was going to die, but deep down inside I know is was for the best, it was the completion. I endured that challenge with the most needed, understanding, and careful assistance from the staff, Jose, Harsh, Carolina, and encouragement from a few cohorts during that 6 hour period. It was a life changing event that I’ll never forget, and glad I went through it.
I left that Saturday afternoon, without having the familiar deep and heavy feeling of anger, it was lifted. I felt delivered and renewed.
My anger was challenged that same Saturday afternoon, and during the first week being home. I overcame them with a smile on my face, and continue to be challenged…it makes me stronger.
The Arkana spiritual retreat was one of the most life-changing events I’ve ever experienced, and highly recommend the Amazon location if you’re ready, and your intentions are specific. Even at the moment in writing this review, the effects are still within me and real.
By the way Maestra Justina is a very gifted Spiritual surgeon and healer.
Thanks Mom and Arkana!
