Calca, Cusco, Perú
Four of us stayed for two nights with Erik and Nilda in 2018. It was the first time doing ayahuasca for all four of us.
Erik and Nilda were very kind and clear, with a lot of experience, which we greatly appreciated. Erik speaks better English, so he prepped us and screened us to decide how much to give us. We did ayahuasca two nights in a row.
In short, the first night was one of the most difficult of my life. I probably did not do the diet perfectly, which is advised. I also got to face and see my demons and shadows right in my face, terrifying but all good.
The second night was one of the best experiences of my life, super profound. The veil lifted, and I felt like I was hanging out with God and the angels all night!
Food was fine. Overall, a great experience. One difference between this and other experiences I have had is that Erik and Nilda find that keeping the group experience short (2-3 hours) and then sending people to their room (when ready) is more powerful for personal process time. Other experiences I have had where there was longer group time and group processing, and also more individual attention from the leaders. Both ways work well.
Oh, the music was awesome as well! I would recommend Sapan Inka to anyone! Blessings.
