Iquitos and Urubamba in Peru
I started researching Ayahuasca about 4 years ago. After many years of anxiety and depression taking over my life, I was looking for something to actually make sense for me. I had tried everything… EVERYTHING! Therapy, medication, support groups, vitamin supplements, you name it. But nothing truly took away the weight that had been holding me down. Even though I thought I had worked through grief, abuse and trauma… it seemed to linger and at times overwhelm all parts of my life. After finally finding a “partner in crime” to join me on my journey, I chose Arkana Spiritual Center for this experience. I truly didn’t know what to expect or what would come of this, but I felt such an extreme pull.
The experience was difficult, there were times I just wanted to go home. My “programmed mind” would creep in and try to convince me that the experience was crazy and too much. But just as the facilitators and shamans continued to say… “you have to trust the medicine and surrender”… I did! I forced myself through the fear and I am forever changed for doing so.
I can not imagine a better place or better people to help me on this journey! Arkana is a true gift and the people are truly there to help and to love you through the journey. I returned home a few weeks ago with the weight gone. I no longer feel the negative, the overwhelming negative emotions, or the sense of doom. I am FREE!! And I owe it completely to EVERYONE at Arkana. The experience was one I will treasure for the rest of my life! There’s still work to do, and I have dedicated my life to continue the journey. Arkana, the facilitators and the medicine have given me the “missing link” I had been searching for, for so long.
If you are being pulled to the medicine, If you are searching for the connection you feel that you have lost… Arkana is the place to find your LOVE, SPIRIT, STRENGTH and HEALING!
