Iquitos and Urubamba in Peru
I’ve been home from my trip to Arkana Spiritual Centre for a month now. I wanted to wait before writing this review so that I could give this perspective from a more balanced place. Reflecting on how I feel now and reading my journal entries from those 2 weeks can be summarized in 2 words: UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. I was shown pure unconditional love from the Shaman, the facilitators, my fellow visitors and all the Arkana staff both in the U.S. and in Peru. It was with the help of all these beautiful people that I learned how to love myself – the most important love of all. The Arkana people have carefully created an environment to support healing and growth. They are there with the purest intentions and give their love freely.
I spent 1 week in the Sacred Valley and 1 week in the Amazon Jungle. Although vastly different, both are well managed, maintained, comfortable and clean. My Sapo ceremony in the Sacred Valley was a vastly beautiful experience. The sounds of the Jungle at night connected me to Mother Earth and Father Universe and taught me that we are all so much greater than our form – a lesson I am very grateful for. The facilitators in both locations are incredibly gifted musicians.
If I could rate Arkana 10 stars I would! I have already recommended it to my family and friends and am planning to return next summer.
