AYAHUASCA TEA RETREAT
Ayahuasca Ecuador, Ayahuasca Colombia, Ayahuasca Peru, and Ayahuasca Brazil. They are used as healing medicine or as part of religious ceremonies or tribal rituals for thousands of years.
They use it to treat physical issues and mental problems, as well as to deal with spiritual crises. Some people believe that it can provide insight or emotional healing. Encourage personal growth, and even foster contact with deities and spirits.
How does Ayahuasca feel?
- A shaman or curandero, who is a type of healer, will boil the P. viridis leaves and crushed B. caapi stalks in water.
- Once the mixture reduces, the shaman will remove the water and add more plant material to form a very concentrated tea.
- They will then allow the tea cool before straining it.
Ayahuasca ceremonies typically take place at night. Participants will notice the Ayahuasca tea effects within 1 hour, and these effects can last for up to 6 hours. Ceremonies often continue long after the effects wear off.
The effects of ayahuasca include:
- HEALING THE BODY
Nearly everyone describes a physical cleansing or purification process, often involving vomiting or purging. Another name for the brew is ‘la purga’ because of its powerful purgative effects. It is not necessary to throw up, however, and the curandero rarely throws up when leading a ceremony.
- HEALING THE MIND
It is not uncommon to experience a regression back to the situation or source of a problem or trauma. To relieve the experience is to gain new understanding and insights enabling resolution or closure. Dream-like scenes where personal messages from spirits are received cause ceremony participants to re-evaluate their life course with a deeper understanding of why they are here, and what it is they need to do to fulfill their purpose.
- HEALING THE SOUL
Most people who experience Ayahuasca report some sort of spiritual experience. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to describe the spiritual effects due to the lack of spirit in our language. Some Western cultures are simply ignorant of the science of spirit which is still practiced today in the Amazon, and it is common for people to feel something that could be described as spiritual.
