Preparation Sessions

The preparation stage is crucial for preparing your body and mind to receive the medicine. As your guide, I will assist you in establishing a dieta, which is an ancestral practice in the Amazon rainforest. The dieta involves specific dietary guidelines and preparation before attending a retreat. By following a dieta, you can enhance your experience during the ceremonies.

The primary objective of the dieta is to cleanse and purify our bodies, enabling us to fully benefit from the plant medicine experience. Without proper cleansing, the ceremonies may predominantly focus on purging and releasing toxins from the body. Therefore, the dieta plays a vital role in optimizing the healing and transformative potential of the ceremonies.


Dieta - Diet

The diet plays a crucial role in supporting your ayahuasca experience. Ayahuasca contains MAOI, which inhibits the activity of monoamine oxidases responsible for breaking down fermented and cultured foods in the gut. Therefore, it is important to avoid consuming fermented, cultured, overly spiced, high-salt, or high-sugar foods when preparing for an ayahuasca ceremony.

Certain foods can interact negatively with ayahuasca, particularly those containing the compound tyramine. Examples include sourdough bread, fermented products, processed meats, certain beans, pickles, cocoa, and wine. Consumption of these foods in combination with ayahuasca can lead to adverse reactions such as heart palpitations, nausea, and headaches.

In addition to dietary restrictions, the preparation stage also includes recommendations to bring you to an optimal energetic state for the ceremony. This involves avoiding stress and distractions, abstaining from sexual activity, and focusing on your intentions for the healing journey. These practices contribute to creating a supportive environment for your ayahuasca experience.

During the preparation stage, we will focus on understanding and refining your intention for the ayahuasca experience. Your intention is the main outcome or purpose you wish to achieve through this journey. It reflects your deepest desires, aspirations, and areas of personal growth you want to explore. Working on your intention involves cultivating self-awareness and a genuine willingness to examine yourself truthfully and honestly in preparation for the ceremony.

It’s important to differentiate between intentions and expectations. Intentions encompass a combination of intellect and emotions, whereas expectations tend to be purely intellectual. Intentions invite a deeper connection with your emotions and inner wisdom, allowing for a more profound and transformative experience during the ceremony.

Through guidance and introspective exploration, we will assist you in clarifying your intention and aligning it with your emotional and intellectual aspects. This process will help set the stage for a meaningful and impactful ayahuasca journey.

Integration Sessions

Post-retreat sessions play a vital role in supporting the integration of the knowledge and teachings gained during the ayahuasca ceremonies into your everyday life.

It is common for individuals to encounter challenges when attempting to incorporate the profound insights and transformative experiences they had during the ceremonies into their daily routines. As they return to their usual environment and responsibilities, the impact of the experience may begin to fade, and the valuable teachings can become lost or forgotten.

To address this, our integration sessions are specifically designed to assist you in the integration process and navigate any potential barriers that may arise. These sessions take place after the retreat, providing a dedicated space for reflection, guidance, and support. Our experienced facilitators will work closely with you to explore and deepen your understanding of the ceremonies’ teachings, helping you apply them to your life in a meaningful and sustainable way.

By participating in the integration sessions, you can optimize the lasting benefits of your ayahuasca experience and enhance your personal growth and well-being. We are committed to providing the necessary tools and support to help you successfully integrate the profound wisdom gained from the ceremonies into your day-to-day existence.
