Preparation & Post-Retreat Integration
It is important that you follow the prescribed diet before the retreat.
This enables you to cleanse your body of as much impurity as possible and to reduce the amount of purging during ceremonies.
The Ayahuasca works in strong bio-chemical and energetic ways and your body needs to be as clean as possible for the plant to work her magic. Dieting properly allows the plant to get straight to work in healing you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Failure to follow the diet will mean that the plant will have to spend a lot of her time cleaning your physical body before she can progress onto the deeper soul work.
In addition, by adhering to the dietary cleanse you are showing respect to the plant and demonstrating your commitment to receiving its healing.
You must also follow this diet for at least three days after your last ceremony to allow the medicine to work to her full capacity.
The diet is as follows:
- Avoid drugs (including shop bought pharmaceuticals) and alcohol for one week before.
Avoid the following 3 days before:
- Pork and red meat
- Fried foods and excessive oil
- Processed foods
- Excessive salt
- Excessive refined sugar
- Spicy food
- Sex and masturbation (Sexual energy is considered to be a very potent form of energy and reserving it allows you to focus all of your energy into healing.)
I highly recommend that you start a daily meditation practice as soon as you book the retreat.
At times Ayahuasca can be overwhelming and being able to remain calm, focused and centred helps greatly.
Upon signing up to the retreat you will be added to a FB group which will allow you to get to know the staff and other participants beforehand and share any questions, advice or thoughts.
Post Retreat Integration
The Ayahuasca continues to works in the days, weeks and months after the ceremonies.
You will find that you often get big downloads of information and moments of realisation outwith the ceremonies and in your dream state.
The retreat allows you the time and space away from ordinary life to process all which you have been shown and taught by the plant.
It will be a life changing experience and once you go home you will most probably feel that you want to make big changes in your life in order to put into practice all that you have learned and to further develop the healing the the plant has given.
Post retreat you will be provided with an individual follow-up coaching session to help you with your integration.
In addition, you will be able to continue your journey with the full support of the others you met on retreat via the FB group. It will give you a chance to keep each other updated, give and receive support, ask questions and share thoughts.
