Iquitos and Sacred Valley in Peru
Got back from my retreat with Pulse tours a few weeks ago. I won’t go into the specifics of my personal experience, because it was very personal and may give someone else expectations of what their journey will be like (I learned in a tough way that expectations can be very detrimental to any experience). All I will say is that it was amazing. Exactly what I needed. I believe 100% that the reason I had such a good overall experience with Ayahuasca was due to the environment I was in at Pulse. Everyone there, the facilitators, the shamans were there simply to allow you to experience the medicine in your own way. They had absolutely no personal agenda, did not expect or try to get you to experience things in a certain way, no ego at all, there was never a moment of “Ive been doing this for a long time to you need to do it like this”. They were of course available any time to answer questions or give you their stories and experiences, but it was never forced upon you. It is a hard feeling to describe, having a group of people like that around you that just wants you to do the work you need to do, and are simply there to allow you to do it and help you along if you need anything at all. Just knowing they were there makes the whole ordeal a lot safer and allows you to focus on learning. So again, the biggest thing for me was the staff there. Couldn’t say enough good things about them. Other than that, the food was really good, great fruit around all the time, the accommodations were comfortable and clean, the Arkana center is really amazing and beautiful. If you feel that Ayahuasca is something you should do, then I would recommend Pulse’s Jungle experience over anything! Thanks guys!
