Manuel V's Reviews
Iquitos and Sacred Valley in Peru
I have no words strong enough to express my deepest gratitude for these 2 intense weeks at Arkana Sacred Valley. It definitely made me grow and changed my life. There is a before and an after Arkana’s experience. It opened an unexplored yet and exciting spiritual path.
The place is beautiful, at the feet of the sacred river and surrounded by mountains. The accommodation is really comfy. The amazing food, respecting the specific diet, is a self-service buffet. So you can eat until you feel fulfilled. You can also grab tea and fruits all day long.
The shamans are highly skilled, extremely experienced and reliable, and also truly caring.
All the facilitators are beautiful beings helping you through your ups and downs with an open heart, a lot of patience and compassion.
All the staff is helping you to realize your true potential, pruning the un-essential to reach the essence of your soul.
You can really feel that everyone there loves their job and is invested all heartedly in it.
I realized so many things during these 2 weeks. I could compare it to 10 years of psychotherapy. The process was sometimes really hard but I was able to deeply understand the causes of some of my blockages and set them free for good.
When I left Arkana, I was finally feeling my heart beating, like if it was the first time in my life. No more fortress around it! I felt so much lighter and at peace. I could finally see the beauty of life!
Three weeks later, I feel a huge difference in my life. I am at least 50% calmer and solve issues faster whenever they come, instead of flipping out every time I have challenging news. I feel more grounded too. My intuition is very sharp and my sensations as well. My tolerance to hear people complaining is extremely limited, even with my friends. I am careful to keep my energy and my connection with this planet Earth very alive. Somehow, I feel empowered, as so many unnecessary fears are now gone for good. The work I did there was huge and I definitely start seeing all the benefits. Even though it’s hard to put words on feelings, I enjoy life in a fuller way.
There is a part of my heart that will always stay with Arkana as it is my first Ayahuasca retreat. I now know I am not alone. We are all together and all connected.
I definitely recommend it. I know I will go back there again.
