I visited Erik and Nilda in September 2018 for the Ayahuasca and San Pedro retreat. It was my first experience with Ayahuasca and I was extremely grateful to have them preparing us, overseeing the ceremonies and guiding us but still allowing us to each have our own experiences. Prior to leaving the retreat Erik also gave us guidelines for how to continue to get the most out of the experience after we left and the months to follow, I did not realize at the time the impact, and new insights I would glean from the experience in the months to follow. But looking back I now see the reason for the instructions as we left. I highly recommend Erik and Nilda as overseers and guides for anyone looking to experience Ayahuasca for the first time or even if you have already experienced it before.
