Wow. I’m back home in my country now for less than a week and I can’t even begin to fathom all that transpired for me at Los Cielos during the 18 day retreat. I was challenged to my core which enabled me to receive the greatest gifts my body, mind, emotions and spiritual self could unwrap.
After about four years of practice with Ayahuasca prior to arriving at Los Cielos, I was certain that I would simply be deepening my experience of what I had already known. To my surprise, using Ayahuasca, along with all of the other plant medicines, and Kambo, was an entirely new experience for me. Not only did I go deeper into the caverns of myself, but I also learned new ways of navigating who I am and what my life represents… that only being in the jungle could offer.
Sylvie, Tyler and the rest of the Shapibo staff were warm and caring. I always felt that I had someone to talk to if I had any questions or concerns regarding my processes… or anything for that matter! Sylvie was sure to consistently check on each one of us to see how we were feeling and ready to address what was coming up.
On one of our rest days, I received the deepest, most healing massage I believe I’ve ever experienced before!
Accommodations were comfortable and clean and the food was delicious, as well as the perfect compliment of health and cleansing for our plant medicine retreat.
I’m looking forward to returning once again, and being of service in the volunteer program. With gratitude…
