Olon, Santa Elena, Ecuador
I was traveling alone trough Ecuador and I wanted to do Ayahuasca, but did not yet know where. I had some specific questions about the date/length, but this was no problem at all and they gave me an opportunity so it would fit for me. After calling with Roey, I felt secure about going there. He picked me up at the bus-terminal and felt very welcome.
In total I stayed there for 6 days and everything was perfect for me: the yoga-classes, surf-classes, the food (!!), the hotel and the service was always good. The preparation with the meeting with the shaman and the possibily to ask whatever you want to know were helpfull. The ceremony with the shaman and his wife, was really special to me. During the ceremony they knew exactly how to guide you and after the ceremony we shared stories and there was the possibility for all kind of questions. They took a lot of time for us.
It’s indescribable for me how this trip was. I think it was the best part of my time in Ecuador and I would love to come back to do the complete retreat. Even the Ayahuasca was mild to me (is different for everyone), I learned a lot and now (3 weeks later) I still feel the changes I made. I already recommended it to everyone in my environment and I want to share this, because for me it was a big present for the rest of my life.
For women: My last day in Ólon I did the moonsession (this was an opportunity they offered from Vikara) with the wife of the shaman, she learned me even more about myself, my energy, how to take better care of myself in the different periods during the month and so much more.
I want to thank Roey, Elba, Nali, David, Hwaneetah, Aime and everybody else who were a part of this beautiful journey.
