I did 8 ceremonies at Pachamama and felt absolytely horrible after I returend to the US, and had to spend a bunch of money to do a follow up ceremony. The US ceremony turned out to be 1000 times more profound than the 8 Pachamama Ceremonies combined. My US guide truly truly cared about me and gave me lots of hints along the way so I could get the message from ayahuasca. Pachamama’s maestros not only did not care what happened to me, they could not see what was happening to me and told me that I was cursed. Their lack of care and insights led me to suffer an unimaginable amount of pain all for no reason.
During my last 6 consecutive ceremonies, at Pachamama I suffered through the same 2 themes repeatedly, without anyone helping me move through the suffering or understand what it was. Finally in the US, during the first hour of my ceremony, my guide told me my 3 core issues that was in my shadow, 3 core issues that Pachamama never saw despite my constant inquaries. For example, I had a bad energy leaking out of me for 6 ceremonies in a row and also during day time and non-ceremony days, but when I asked Pachamama Maestroes guess what they said- That I was cursed. They said my bad energy is from a past life friend who gave me a curse. In the US, I finally understood it was simply my long-time supressed negativity and released all of it in 1 night (vs 6 ceremonies at Pachamama and 6 days afterwards)
To make things worse, the owner Dominik is very unreasonable. I asked for a refund back because he wouldn’t host any ceremonies due to covid19 quarantine. I was totally fine to get a refund and then just leave without any ceremonies. There were plenty other places conducting ceremonies in the midst of the coronavirus crisis. Dominik refused to refund me without any apology. Then he kind of oked me to do ceremonies but made it seems like he was doing me a huge favor. It was an uphill battle to get the ceremonies in. If he didn’t want to do ceremonies, then no problem at all, just refund me my money, and that didn’t work for him either. All of the volunteers who work there all found the owner Dominik extremely domineering as well.
Last but not least, they had bed bugs. I originally thought it was mosquito bites so I toughed it out, but eventually my entirely body is covered in line-shaped bites. Mosquitoes are expected, but not bed bugs. Another guest also got fleas. All of their dogs have fleas.
