Some veterans are turning to a different kind of “experience” to help with their PTSD. A church in Orlando is using ancient medicine from the Amazon to help them fight their demons. Should this treatment be allowed everywhere? Phil Buck http://on.wtsp.com/2ujsnQG

I drank here in the beginning and waited to post this because I didn’t want to diminish any healing that other people received. I’m incredibly happy for them. I also don’t want people to think it’s all rainbows. I’ve been asked to post this so here it is. I believe they are business first healing center second with that I decided it wasn’t the place for me after drinking there multiple times. The medicine is… was good but during my last retreat I attended the founder watered it down so he had enough which I thought that was super disrespect but these are just my beliefs and experiences. He said his supplier told him to but he didn’t do it until he realized he didn’t have enough for everyone, which sounded like hogwash to me. I realize everyone doesn’t view or respect the medicine the same way as I do. They also don’t have a curandero (English we say “shaman”) to guide ceremony and they do overcrowd like 20-25/30 people at a time with no true guidance or able to clear the space beside sage. If one does show up they usually don’t work with them for very long. The facilitators are nice and have good intentions but there also have been poor intentions there as well which have caused the two different entire staff to quit at once but new people join on that had good experiences. From my knowledge young women have been what I feel were taken advantage of and inappropriately treated in other subtle ways. People serving medicine shouldn’t mix with attendees in romantic ways as the guest have such a high status view of the server. I’m not saying people aren’t going to get healing there because I saw some beautiful things happen but I also saw some disgusting things happen that turned me completely off. Do your own research and see how it feels to you these are just my experiences from drinking there about 13 times looking for something that wasn’t there. It did get me to travel to Peru and have a life changing experience for this I am grateful it was a somewhat ugly stepping stone.
And to me it’s not about being hokey or not it’s doing one of the, if not the most powerful psychedelic which is traditionally always given with guidance until we learn to navigate the medicine ourselves. But again just my beliefs.
In the end, we follow our hearts to where it leads us.

Response from #1 Ayahuasca Retreats in the USA on November 15, 2017

Dear Lance,
Although your review comes to us over a year and half after your last retreat with us we are sure there is value in it, as with all reviews. We love and appreciate all of our members and are always open to hear suggestions on where we could use improvement.

Please accept our sincere apology we are truly sorry to hear you had a negative experience. When you were with us almost 2 years ago we were operating as a different organization, at that time we were Soul Quest of ONAC which we are no longer. We are now Soul Quest Ayahuasca Church of Mother Earth and much has changed since that time. Over a year and half ago, we relocated our church to a more spacious and accommodating property on 5 acres of land. We have a new staff with a new set of staff guidelines which we adhere to very strictly, we also have several new private accommodations to create a more comfortable experience for our ever growing group of members.

When you were here last, we were a brand new church with much growing to do and as with anything that has never been done there are always mistakes to be learned from and growing pains along the way. We are often making changes to better our Church and the Services that we offer to our human family. Since we changed locations and became Soul Quest Ayahuasca Church of Mother Earth we have had over 500 ceremonies at our new location and have been blessed to be able to help many members get much needed healing. Even though we do not claim to be holding strictly traditional ceremonies such as you would find Peru, Brazil and throughout South America we often have visiting Medicine Men and Women come to guide and teach us. Our Peruvian Shaman Maestro Gaspar, who has well over 40 years of experience, visits us quarterly to lead workshops and to share the teachings of Grand Mother Ayahuasca. You can be sure that our staff and members are ALWAYS learning and growing!

Soul Quest was founded with the vision to make Ayahuasca available to all souls who are called to experience her transformative healing as she spreads outside of the Amazon Basin. Before, during and after every one of our ceremonies we do our best to go above and beyond to make sure everyone of our members feels safe, loved and at home. Furthermore, we keep our phone lines open to all who may need assistance with their integration process once they return home. Our wish is that everyone whose life has been touched by Soul Quest will find and maintain true transformative healing within themselves and within their lives.
Once again we are deeply sorry your experience was less than ideal and we would love for you to come join us for Ceremony in the future so that you can experience for yourself how much Soul Quest has grown. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. May Your Journey Be Blessed.

I attended a weekend retreat here at soulquest. It was very unprofessional. No shaman, no live icaros, the one’s doing the ceremony do not even take the medicine. The first night me and my wife attended the ayahaucca ceremony. We knew it wasn’t right but discussed it and agreed we had already paid so decided to go forward. Chris the owner said he tries to give people an aya experience without all the dogma. Which is fine if you just want to party but I would not advise to disrespect mother ayahaucca in that manner. Without the proper guidance ayahaucca and other shamanic medicines can be very very dangerous. I’m not going to go into detail what happened to me during my stay but I was up for 5 nights and almost ended up in the hospital. Although Chris and the staff are very nice people and might have good intentions. This in not a drug and should not be played with. I’ve spent over a month in Ecuador with very skilled and respectful people to the medicines and participants. [Gaia sagrada ] and spent a small time with teachers from the shipibo tribe in Peru. This happened to me with experience, it can happen to anyone. Please, I advise to be very careful. Especially if this is your first time. Just because something is cheaper and more covenant, doesn’t mean it’s better. Do your research. Make sure the people know what they are doing so you leave with the healing and love you went there for. Aho
