Are plant medicines right for me?
Plant medicines are not for everyone, however, for many people they can help lead to many long-lasting changes in physical, mental, and spiritual health and lifestyle. If you are suffering from physical or mental problems, or addictions, there is often a spiritual connection, and in this way the shaman and medicine can help clear this problem in the spiritual level, and the healing will manifest in the mental and physical planes. If you are genuinely seeking better health, more connection to the universe, Creator, or yourself, or are seeking some form of guidance in your life the medicine can be very helpful. If you are someone simply interested in the psychedelic effects of these plants, solely seeking visions, this is not for you.
Is there a diet?
Every center has different requirements for dieting before a retreat. Here we ask that you avoid red meat, alcohol, and recreational drugs a week before attending. We also advise eating in moderation (no excessive coffee, sweets, etc.) If you are taking prescription medications please inform us in your registration form. While here we serve healthy and simple meals traditional to Ecuador.
With one or two helpers in addition to the shaman in each ceremony to assist with a maximum of 8 guests, participants are always well taken care of. The shaman will judge your energy and needs and take this into account when serving you the medicine.
After ceremonies and retreats we are always available to talk and give guidance. As we are a smaller center, it is easier to stay in touch. All our lives are the ceremony, and the medicines show us how we can live our lives with more harmony. In your day-to-day lives after the ceremony pay attention to your dreams, give thanks to Pachamama for the food we eat, give thanks to the rivers, mountains, fire, and connect with the nature where you live. If something in your life is not resonating with you, have faith that you can change it and live the life you wish. Pray. Sing. Listen and move your body. Join in on group activities doing something that interests you, or join a wellness circle. Honor the Earth, honor your fellow man, and honor yourself.
