Iquitos and Urubamba in Peru
I had stayed at Arkana Sacred Valley for one week in October. I have worked with the Medicene before coming to Arkana. I always had issues with trusting the Medicene and battling fear and anxiety during ceremony which prohibited me from having any type of breakthrough. The retreats I participated in prior to Arkana had 80 plus people during ceremony. It was definitely overwhelming for me and there were a lot of distractions. We had a total of 8 during my stay at Arkana and it was absolutely perfect. The shamans were so amazing!! I had never experienced the personal icaros before and it was simply magical. In a nutshell, the Medicene unlocked childhood traumas for me which were needed to be released in order for me to understand my life, my behaviors, etc. Those traumas were completely blacked out and stuck inside my soul. Although it was very difficult to face, that night changed my life. I do not carry with me any type of hate or resentment, I now have peace. The workers at Arkana were by my side throughout this entire journey. They were all there to offer support and love. They are all angels in my eyes. The grounds at Arkana were beautiful and the rooms were very cozy and the bed was SUPER COMFY!! I did a lot of extra things like Reiki, massages and bio magnetic therapy. I’m so glad I brought the extra money for those services because it just added to my experience. The food was delish!!! I loved how we could leave the retreat and go travel to Machu Picchu and other locations. I felt very very safe at Arkana and it’s so important for me as a female that travels alone. The sweat lodge ceremony was amazing and the day we drank San Pedro was beautiful. Words cannot express the gratitude I have in my heart for Arkana and everyone that works there. If I feel the call to work with another again, I would definitely go back!!!
Much love! Michelle NJ
