I went to a 9 day retreat in July. It was absolutely incredible and truly life changing.
Even ignoring the ceremonies for a moment, I had a ton of personal growth just from spending time at this retreat. It was amazing to spend time away from my usual busy life and be able to truly relax.
The temple grounds are beautiful! I felt so relaxed and safe the entire time I was there. Everyone working there who I interacted with was wonderful. There were many moments during ceremony that became very difficult and I am so grateful for the environment that the Facilitators and Shaman create. There were a few times where it became too intense and I thought I couldn’t stick with the experience, but I was able to get help from the facilitators to persevere.
I really appreciate how they found a balance between giving people space and being there to help when needed. It was amazing to see the growth of each of the people at the retreat, and this was made possible by the way the temple is setup with the amazing facilitators.
Also, the food was great. The Aya diet greatly restricts what you are allowed to eat, but the food was great every day.
If you are considering working with Ayahuasca, I highly recommend doing it at the Temple. It was the perfect introduction to the strange and beautiful world of magic.
