The Ayahuasca Ceremonies
During the week we will be hosting 5 Ayahuasca ceremonies. The Ayahuasca medicine is a sacred plant brew that has been used by indigenous Amazonian cultures for thousands of years – primarily for healing, divination and spiritual awakening.
Working with Ayahuasca is an intense, profound, and almost always a highly transformative experience that can facilitate deep healing on all levels of your being – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Ayahuasca is a doorway to inner worlds that allows us access to higher states of consciousness and the experience of spiritual awakening. To many people, it reveals the multi-dimensional nature of reality and ourselves and it leads us back to who we truly are.
Detoxing, Purging and Cleansing
Purging and cleansing play a fundamental role in Amazonian shamanic healing traditions. The primary reason why Ayahuasca is such an effective medicine is because it’s a purgative meaning that it usually (but not always) causes you to purge or vomit during the experience. However, what’s unique about ayahuasca is that you’re never only purging physical stuff. An ayahuasca purge also releases you of unhealthy mental and emotional energies that you may have been carrying that were initially caused by difficult experiences in your life such as emotional wounds, abuse, relationship difficulties and depression.
To ensure that you are fully cleansed by the end of the retreat you will be taking part in not only Ayahuasca ceremonies but also other cleansing rituals and activities. You will take part in mud baths and fruit baths which draw toxins out of the body and cleanse the skin and body.
Our hope is that by the end of the retreat you will feel like a new person, fully cleansed of most of the negative and harmful toxins in your body, be they physical or emotional toxins.
The shaman leading the ceremonies is Don Alfredo Cairuna and the curandera Claudia Romaina (his wife) both of them are the owner of Raomisbo healing center.
