Aya Quest performs Ayahausca Ceremonies in Kentucky. Our Shaman/Chaplains provide a safe forum for you to experience Ayahausca in context with your goals.
These are folks you can trust, was my feeling. I brought a lot of apprehension to the ceremony, but their words and preparation alleviated a lot of that. I did not have an intense, revelatory experience, but we were told that everyone responds differently.
And I am very grateful to them for providing the opportunity for me to find out my personal response.
I returned from my first Ayahuasca retreat at Aya Quest a week ago. I was so nervous going in, but Friday afternoon before starting the ceremony Steve and Teri went over every possible outcome that could or would not happen and how to handle it and what to expect. I was definitely nervous after reading all the stories of people getting their butt kicked or scary experiences, but that wasn’t the case for me. Friday’s ceremony was quite relaxing, but I didn’t have any real insights or visions. Saturday’s ceremony was quite different. I had such an amazing experience and can’t stop thinking about it. The feeling of love and gratitude, bliss, and a few insights into my issues. I have more clarity and confidence. I now know what everyone is talking about with Mother Ayahuasca and the calling to her. I am not done, and I will be going back. One big change is that my 10+ year bout with insomnia is gone! I go to bed with no supplements or medications and sleep all night long. If I wake up, I go right back to sleep. I attribute that to this calm mind and sense of peace that I returned with. That was an unexpected surprise, and I couldn’t be happier. I would definitely recommend Aya Quest if you are looking for something close to home in a weekend. My only suggestion would be that they offer longer retreats than just a weekend. I would have liked to have had the experience of 3-4 ceremonies to go deeper.
Over all a pleasant experience, several first-timers including myself. Not being religious I found the facilitators to be pretty minimalistic in a religious aspect, a plus in my mind.
Everyone was very nice. If I could complain about anything, Steve the shaman whom I sense means well does have a propensity to prattle on about nearly every pseudo scientific/philosophical/semi-conspiracy theory known to the internet…pushing the limit on sermonizing. Some of it even sounds good…but only after you’ve take the ayahuasca.
