Your Personal Commitment Directly Influences Your Ayahuasca Experience
The more you prepare yourself, the greater the experience will be. The attitude in which you enter the experience will have a direct effect on the experience itself. Your personal commitment to the diet restrictions, ceremonies and cleansing activities is not only important for the quality of the experience, but is an essential part for your health and safety.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
Everyone must meet at Etnikas office at 10am one day before the start of the retreat. We required you to arrive a day before your retreat so you have a chance to acclimatise to the altitude of Cusco. Many people feel the effects of the altitude and if you arrive the day of your retreat and feel altitude sickness you may not be able to drink Ayahuasca. If you are unable to take Ayahuasca for this reason we will unfortunately not be able to provide a refund.
You must book your own hotel room for the night between the acclimatisation day and the day of the retreat. We can recommend several places that are able to take care everything including transfer from the airport to the hotel.
The next day we will look to meet at the same place at 10:00am and from there we will travel by shuttle bus to the retreat centre. Over this 24 hour time period you are required to fast and drink just water.
As Ayahuasca is a potent form of medicine it can occasionally have interactions with other medications or drugs. We therefore recommend that you find a natural ways to detoxify your system at least two weeks before the start of the retreat.
