The ethnobotanist Dennis McKenna referred me to this retreat center last year. Parign Hak (Grandma’s Home) is a small place in a beautiful mountainous area of Peruvian Amazon. Going there was one of the most important experiences of my entire life. Not only did the ayahuasca work heal me in a myriad of ways, but the retreat itself was life changing. Parign Hak has a strong focus of the local indigenous culture, and it was amazing being immersed with the native Harakbut population. The retreat has the utmost respect for the indigenous people there, and a couple of locals even sat in the ceremonies to be healed by Jessica (our phenomenal gringa ayahuascera) I’d been on two other retreats in the past, but Parign Has was by far the best. It’s not very commercialized, and kind of hidden in the world of ayahuasca retreats. I probably wouldn’t have found it at all if Dr. McKenna hadn’t given me the referral. I always try to support “small businesses”. Thousands of people go to Rythmia, Temple of the Way of Light, Spirit Vine etc. Those places don’t need your money. But tiny, hidden gems like PH do. So you’re looking for a more personal, intimate and culturally eye-opening experience go to Grandma’s Home!!
