I did the 9 day heroic Ayahuasca retreat December 1st to December 9th 2019 with Spirit Plant Journeys. And I am still integrating the the healing and wisdom and lessons and beautiful experience I had there. What an incredible and authentic experience which I couldn’t begin to explain in a couple of paragraphs.
If you are reading this you are probably thinking about taking the plunge. I spent literally years reading reviews and watching youtube videos and doing my research. Because I really wanted to do it…knew I had to do it, but was terrified of taking that leap of faith. The medicine called me until it was my time and everything fell into place and I ended up booking this retreat with SPJ. I had a couple of phone conversations with Sarah and knew this was the right place for me. And I am so happy that I did.
I really wanted a gentle nurturing authentic healing retreat with a small group with a Shipibo shaman in the medicine’s true environment. I got this and so much more. I am so grateful to SPJ and Maestra Orfelinda. It was an intense and eye opening experience full of love, support and healing on all levels, i came back a changed man, a better man I think. The plant gave me the healing and transformation I asked for and I needed. It took a little while but over the course of the 9 days I connected and grew to love everyone there, particularly the facilitators Anjelica and Ryan, who genuinely cared about everyone of us and the deep commitment they’ve taken with this medicine and the process.
The location and setting in the sacred valley outside Cuzco is breath taking. Its a magical spiritual and healing place. The Tambo grounds are beautiful and it allows you to experience nature in it`s purest form. And the Delicious healthy food, and the yoga, and the sharing circles and sound healings were designed perfectly to give the group what we needed at any given moment. We were looked after with such compassion and gentle guidance.
Everything I’ve mentioned contributed to a beautiful, deeply personal, healing and life changing experience.
