After traveling for six months in South America and reaching a perfect point in our lives, my partner and I decided to attend an Ayahuasca Retreat in the Bolivian Amazon. After thorough research, we signed up for a 10-day retreat at Pisatahua which included 4 Ayahuasca ceremonies and 1 tobacco ceremony. Erik and Sasha were very helpful and happy to answer any queries we had before arrival.
This retreat could not have been more perfect. It’s idyllic setting in the Aquicuana Reserve, next to a beautiful lagoon was a bonus to all the benefits of this retreat. The cost includes everything you need during your stay: Airport transfers, food, water, accommodation, guided jungle walks, and a boat trip. Our hut was private, peaceful and overlooked the lagoon. We enjoyed waking up to the birds every morning and falling asleep to a variety of jungle sounds.
My intention during the retreat was to receive insight into my direction in life but I learned so much more. Each person on the retreat had a unique experience and every ceremony was completely different. The healers (Niño and Josefine) from Casa de Pawua did an excellent job of holding the space for everyone during their 10-day journey and were professional and knowledgeable in their work. Niño has a deep connection with the jungle and the plant medicine which was an integral component to the ceremonies. It really is an experience you will never forget.
I am forever grateful for my time spent a Pisatahua, with the healers and the strangers who became family. I thoroughly recommend this retreat and hope I have the opportunity to return later in life.
