The week I spent at Parign Hak was one of the most important of my life. When I saw that this was the place Dennis McKenna sends people too, I had to research it further. While it seemed like a small and relatively unknown center, I had an incredibly strong “gut-instinct” about it, as soon as I started exploring the website and saw the beautiful photos on their Instagram account. I KNEW this was the place I was supposed to go to for my first ayahuasca retreat. I’m so glad I trusted that feeling. Jessica is the ayahuascera and she conducted a very thorough pre-screening process. I’m grateful for that, as the other people in our group were AWESOME, and now hopefully lifelong friends. She only takes participants who are serious about working with ayahuasca and respectful to the native family that runs the retreat. Which meant that everyone in our small group was on the same page (even more so after the retreat). I’m still processing what I learned about myself during my time there, but what I do know was that my week in the jungle has changed me forever and for the better. Please give this wonderful little place a chance!
