Where do I begin? I am very familiar with Ayahuasca ceremonies and have experienced being in ceremony with notable Peruvian shamans, so I know a good thing when I see it. And Chakra Alegria de Amor definitely ranks as a great healing center. The emphasis is on the word healing, as that is what they exist for. And they do it well! The is the perfect place for souls who want to heal and take their spiritual evolution to the next level, while being cared for by people who are passionate and attentive about what they do. I felt completely safe (which is critical when doing this type of work) and embraced by the jungle, which is kept in pristine condition. The purity and sacredness of this property is beyond description. I have huge respect for Omar (the owner and creator of the retreat) and for the integrity he shows in the design and maintenance of the retreat. And Pedro, the shaman, is truly a gem. Don’t be concerned because of his youth – he is an old soul and that is what really matters. He is very caring, serviceable and holds sacred space very well. I underwent a 10 day Uchu Sanango dieta and he really looked after me. Talk about feeling safe and cared for! I recommend this retreat wholeheartedly for anyone who feels ready to undertake a transforming journey.
