Not “Near-Perfect”. Just, perfect. Travelling to South America for the first time, and never having attended a retreat such as this before, my heart was full of trepidation in anticipation of where I was going and what I was doing. I felt strongly drawn to this retreat centre though, and to Pacco and Chrissy. And my instincts were right. I felt a great connection to both Chrissy and Pacco, and a great trust for them immediately, and this only grew as I was guided through my three Ayahuasca ceremonies. I feel that they both gave me everything that I needed at exactly the time I needed it, as did Mother Ayahuasca, and the other medicines, ceremonies and lessons that were integrated into the experience. I could not have felt more safe and cared for during my time there. I was with a brilliant group of beautiful people, the surrounding scenery is breath-taking, and the accommodation comfy and ideally suited to the experience. The food (once the fasts were broken) was amazing, and I felt like I was tasting things for the first time again. I feel much less fearful now, and more peaceful. I am continuing with a vegan diet, my taste buds refreshed, as are my other senses, I hope to continue living in this clearer, more focused mind, body and soul that was realised through the cleansing I experienced with Shamanic Vida. I really can not imagine using these plant medicines under the guidance of any other shaman, such is the trust, respect and love I feel for Pacco and Chrissy, and I know that I will return to continue my journey with them and with Mother Ayahuasca. Thank you Pachamama.
