A quick guide on how to prepare for your retreat.
Before you come to the center, we recommend that you start a gradual cleansing process. This would help support your healing process, but if you are not able to do it, please do not worry.
We recommend that you abstain from pork, alcohol, chilli and hot spices, sex, drugs, icy food/drinks for at least 3 days before your arrival. Gradually decrease the consumption of salt and sugar. The pre-dieta is not mandatory, but the longer you may respect it, the more it will support your healing process.
Some medication (pills, preprations or vaccinations) and Ayhauasca are not compatible. To find out if any of medication you are taking is contraindicated with Ayahuasca, please check this link to Ayahuasca Forums.
As a part of your booking process, you will receive a medical questionnaire. We cannot confirm your space until we have received it. We take the medical evaluation process seriously and each section of the questionnaire needs to be filled out as requested. We have a consultant (medical doctor and psychotherapist) whom we consult during our inquiries about your health status and potential risks. We treat all information as confidential.
Do not forget to bring with you all the medications that you need, and do not stop taking them when you come to the center.
Malaria is mostly erradicated from the city of Iquitos. No one has ever contracted malaria while staying in the center, the same goes for dengue. Taking anti-malaria pills is a personal decision and responsibility. We advise you to search for more information if you plan to visit other parts of the jungle. If you plan to take antibiotics or anti-malaria pills, please leave at least 3 days between the last take and the first ceremony.
The combination of most street drugs and Ayahuasca is very dangerous and potentially life-threatening. No street drugs or alcohol are allowed in the center. If we suspect such drugs or alcohol are being consumed during your stay, we will ask you to leave the center. If we suspect that such drugs or alcohol have been taken immediately prior to arrival, we reserve the right to refuse admission to the center.
