The most important things to me when looking for a place to sit in ceremony with Ayahuasca were; the integrity of the Shaman, the integrity of the medicine, and the integrity the mission of the center.
Nihue Rao exceeds far and above the the integrity I was looking and hoping to find. The medicine is so important to everyone who runs and works at this center. They believe in it and understand it deeply which makes the medicine even stronger in my eyes.
The medicine, Ayahuasca and the master plants, are good and honest. It is all made right there in plain sight. You can sit and watch if you want to. It is made every day of ceremony.
If I had any concerns while I was there, someone was always available for me to talk to. There is constant support if you need it or you can stay completely quiet and lay in a hammock all day long. Whatever the process, it is accepted and honored conscientiously and compassionately.
I feel very fortunate to have found this place and even more so to have been able to spend two weeks there. I never truly believed that I would be able heal the things I needed to heal, but I have. With the guidance of an honest Shaman, Maestro Ricardo, and the impeccable, impressive care of his team, Phillip, Benoit, Camila, and Patrick, I navigated through things I could only imagine before coming here.
It is all about the plant medicine to attain the truth of things at Nihue Rao. I would definitely go back and recommend anyone to go there.
