Just as there are many types of churches that can bring you to a spiritual and physical healing there are many types of shamans that can bring you to a spiritual and physical place of healing. There are also churches and shamans that can lead you astray either consciously or unconsciously.
Several months ago when I made a decision to step into my 10 year vision of answering my call to the Amazon River in Peru to participate in an ayahuasca ceremony I began to do my research. I read two books and watched 4 documentaries. I also read many reviews.
I was looking for a safe place that I could heal. I had heard the horror stories of the jungle. I had never been out of the U.S. and I wanted a place that catered to my native English language since I couldn’t speak Spanish. Due to my age and health, I wanted to know this was going to be safe. I don’t do drugs or drink and wanted to treat this experience as a spiritual journey as well as a healing journey with safety harnesses all around this journey so I could surrender to the experience.
Nihue Rao Centro Espiritual honored my space.
From the time I made contact with them via email to the time I left the place they gave me a safe and guided experience.
I addressed my fears from the start and they patiently guided me. I was monitored for my health from the get go. They put the responsibility on me to provide very real raw data and nudged me to be accountable for my actions.
When I arrived they were very direct and wasn’t there to take my money and put me through a ceremony. They were direct about my responsibilities and it was very apparent that they had respect for the Spirit of Ayahuasca. I even began to have hesitation about what I was getting into and they didn’t push me at all to participate. They know that it is our responsibility to partake as well as respect Ayahuasca. There was no peer pressure to do anything I didn’t want to do. They wanted to make sure that I was informed of all consequences and they even limited me on how much I could take on the first journey.
There were several people there that had experience Ayahuasca before as well as other drugs and they commented that they wish they would have done it here at this place. They said that they would never go to another place again.
I am planning on coming back within the next 6 months. It was a transformational experience and there is always more work that needs to be done.
Although this place resonated with me and I will be returning to this place. I am not here to convince you that this place is for you… I am open to answer your questions about this place from my experience. If you want to reach out to me if free to contact me at: Hfisher62@gmail.com
