Iquitos and Urubamba in Peru
I would like to start off by saying thank you from the bottom of my heart to absolutely everyone at Arkana, including facilitators, shamans, chefs, guides and most of all Jose! I will never forget everything you did for me, in order to get me into the last spot for the retreat. Gracias hermano! You saved my life!
I recently did the 2 week Amazon/Sacred Valley Retreat from January 5th until January 18th.
Before reaching out to Arkana, I was at a point in my life where I was completely lost. All of the pillars in my life recently came crashing down, including: health, wealth, love and happiness.
My life reached a dead end. I had nothing left in me, my confidence was gone, anxiety through the roof and my depression was at an all time high. I almost overdosed twice because I did not know what to do with my life, no direction, no purpose for living and was suffering from severe mood swings/agression. Plain and simple, I was not happy with myself,lashed out on loved ones and did not want to live.
My family and friends were desperately trying to convince me to go to see a psychologist or therapist and get on medications ASAP. However, I rejected that route at all cause because I did not want to become another customer for the pharmaceutical companies.
So I seeked out alternative measures and this is where Arkana came in. I was always a firm believer of psychedelics because of all the research conducted by scientists/universities around the world. Not to mention the thousands of testimonials of people including celebrities experiencing deep mystical healing.
I asked myself, what did I have to lose? So I faced one of my biggest fears of my life and booked my flight to Peru with Arkana. Everything you have read or heard is true, yes, you face your demons, the darkest parts of your shadow.
However, there can be no light unless you experience darkness….This is why I encourage anyone reading this, to make the decision right now and face those fears. If not now, when? Don’t do it for others, do it for yourself. By healing your mind, everything in your life changes. We truly create our reality but I will leave that for all of you to see for yourselves….
We all must have the courage to face our demons and get into the depths of our subconscious minds. This is where Mother Ayahuasca does all her magic. Research has show Aya causes new neural connections and neoroplasticity in the brain. In order to heal, you must take action. Plant medicine has been around for thousands of years helping people heal and evolve their consciousness.
From the moment I arrived at the facility, I was blown away by the love and hospitality by everyone. Everything was extremely well organized from the beginning of the day until nighttime.
All of us in the group of 20 were strangers at day 1 but by the end, we became family as we cried together, laughed together, danced together and shared the most profound journeys of our lives.
The bond was unlike anything I have ever experience. Strangers became a soul family because all of us were dealing with demons inside and together we surrendered to mother Aya for her healing.
I could write a book from all of the beautiful experiences I had at Arkana but I’ll get right down to it….
Do not look anywhere else in the world for plant medicine healing because Arkana has everything you need! Let me save you the time and explain why….
– 5 Meo-DMT – The God Molecule (Strongest most profound connection to God and the universe. You will experience what love is truly all about and nothing but pure bliss. It will open your heart in ways you never thought possible.
– Kambo – They place frog venom on your skin to completely cleanse your negative energy blockages prior to ceremony. Don’t be alarmed, its part of the process and is extremely effective.
– Rape – Either powdered or liquid blown up your nose to help align your energies and center you. Absolute magic and works wonders.
– Ayahuasca – No explanation needed here. The best plant medicine to have ever been placed on earth for real healing and real connection to source. Plus, let me add that the Shaman’s take this to another level with their Icaros. It is magic how it starts to activate the medicine instantly with the singing. The ceremonies are in one word……mystical!
– San Pedro – A cactus plant extracted to help you experience nature and everything in spectacular beauty. Almost as if you were given a new set of eyes to see reality along with a boost in your creativity and a deep love for everything.
From the bottom of my heart and soul, thank you Emilie, Justin, Arsh, Ivan, Coleman, Fernanda, Jose and all of the shamans who completely changed my life. I experienced a rebirth and look at life for what it truly is….beautiful. We are soul beings having a human experience, so lets make the most of our time here.
Love is the answer! Forgiveness is key!
Gracias familia and I will be back soon!
