Ayahuasca in Cusco-Peru
Preparation Ayahuasca Wachuma Retreats
Date: 12th May,2018City: Cusco
Our Community of Shamans offers a total quality service in the ceremonies and retreats of Ayahuasca or Wachuma (San Pedro). Part of this service is the advice, safety and professional attention we give to our clients. In the specific case of the sacred brew, it is very important to follow a special diet and preparation before an Ayahuasca ceremony or Ayahuasca retreat. The reason for this is that the beverage is a purely healing potion for the body and mind, and if the digestive system, nervous system or blood of the participant contains toxic compounds, by-products of the industrialized society in which we live, the medicinal brew will act first on the organism instead of producing visions, reflections, psycho-spiritual healing. For this reason it is more convenient to carry out bodily detoxification before any Ayahuasca retreat or Ayahuasca ceremony, by means of a special diet (and finally the taking of medicinal volcanic water).
Physical and mental aspects
If you are going to take Ayahuasca in our Temple in Cusco City, the mental preparation will help you enormously to connect with your inner being, with your deepest intimacy, so that memories of the distant past emerge and also to dispel negative emotional overloads. In our Retreats Temple in the countryside 1 hour from Cusco City, the wonderful quiet and powerful energy flow of nature (mountains, river, forest, clean air, etc.) will significantly increase your sensitivity to the healing action of the Ayahuasca. And in both cases, the detoxification of the organism by means of the diet and subsequent taking of medicinal volcanic water will improve notably your connection with nature and the access powers within your own mind, both key requirements for the successful healing in an Ayahuasca retreat. As a conclusion then always keep in mind the importance of physical and mental preparation for the Ayahuasca sessions in Cusco.
Our staff (shamans, assistants, translators) also follows a process of preparation for each ceremony, consisting of meditation, introspection, noble silence and also a special diet. In that way your mind is also much calmer and sensitive to understand and give the best support in the healing of our visitors.
Special diet before drinking Ayahuasca
Should not be consumed at least 3 days before: alcoholic beverages, cigarettes, drugs, meat, coffee, milk, canned food, much sugar and salt, chili, sodas, any type of medicine (pills, injections, vitamins, supplements etc) . Let your diet be as natural as possible. In the specific case of cocaine, its mixture with Ayahuasca will cause a stroke or cardiac arrest and almost certainly the death of the participant. You can have vegetables, fruits, herbal teas, rice, beans, all consumed in a natural way. Increase your consumption of no-gas water. Preparation Ayahuasca Wachuma.
Volcanic Medicinal Water Taking
During the third day of preparation, that is, on the eve of an Ayahuasca ceremony or Ayahuasca retreat, you must take the volcanic medicinal water (do not drink or eat anything 4 hours before). You drink this water in our office or in our Retreats Temple, cost is included. (It can be also taken independently for detoxification). Volcanic medicinal water contains sulfates that are powerful natural cleansers of the digestive, renal and immune systems. Does not produce adverse or secondary effects. In this way your organism will be detoxified, allowing Mother Ayahuasca to focus on psycho-spiritual healing.
It may happen that, even after having carried out the entire detoxification process previously described, the effect of Ayahuasca is not adequate. This happens because, in the vast majority of cases, the participant is or has been a consumer of large amounts of alcohol and/or drugs. If that's your situation, stop consuming and extend your detoxification time before making a retreat or ceremony. Anyway, once being here, our Shamans will find the right dose of Ayahuasca for you, but it is much easier if you also cooperate.
Finally, the psychological aspect is also recommended as part of the preparation: meditation, little interpersonal communication, saving of psychophysical energy. Any type of sexual activity is also prohibited during the previous 3 days. After the Ayahuasca ceremony or Ayahuasca retreat, it is very helpful to continue with the diet for 3 to 7 days, so that the sacred plant continues to work, continues healing your body and mind.
