Iquitos and Urubamba in Peru
I did a one week long retreat with Pulse Tours at the Arkana Spiritual Center, and it was amazing! It exceeded my expectations in every way! The facilities they had for us were very clean and well maintained, and the food was healthy and delicious (best fish I’ve had in my life).
It blew me away how much the shamans contributed to the experiences; it was clear the generations of cultural discovery that they draw from were present in our ceremonies.
The facilitators were amazing! They were all there because they believe the work they are contributing to is the most worthwhile thing they could be doing at this point in their lives, and that purity of intent absolutely came through.
I went through a couple of the most challenging nights of my life at the Arkana Spiritual Center, but it was set up perfectly and I was able to go through that process and learn more than I would have thought possible! I could write for pages about what I got out of my Ayahuasca experiences with Pulse Tours, but for me the most important things were that it connected me with my path (I now have a clear vision of what I should be working toward in the long term, and the steps to take in the short term to move in that direction), and it showed me that listening to other people, really listening with the mindset that they may be trying to convey something that you don’t already know, and engaging with understanding, compassion and love is the medicine that the world needs to heal. Now I get to practice living those lessons.
If you feel the calling to work with this medicine Pulse Tours is a great place to do it. This work is difficult and challenging, but if you are willing to learn and transform, it will teach you more than anything else in your life.
I’ll be going back as soon as I can!
