How can this sacred medicine help

As a society, we have moved away from our natural roots and have become divided into a terrible materialistic confusion.
We have not been true to the harmony of the planet, which keeps the balance with nature and the abundant universe.
This imbalance within us eventually manifests into physical, psychological, and spiritual diseases. Some examples can be stress, anxiety, and depression. Aya helps us take a look at our most inner being to find an understanding of oneself, and self love. The medicine helps guide us towards solutions, while teaching valuable life lessons in the process. Keep an intention in mind, and close

The real thing! I’m so happy that i got the opportunity to stay with Paul, Wissam and all the lovely people of the Ayamama center. They showed me around the jungle and share with me their knowledge about medical plants and jungle fruits 🙂 Saul the shaman is one of the most devoted people I’ve ever meet, working under his supervision felt safe and comforting. The facilities are very basic( according to the Amazon standards 🙂 but its sufficient. And sometimes the simplest the better. The location is just magical, srounded with all the beauty of the Amazon jungle. A senesensional experience that i will never forget. give trust in the people of the Ayamama center foe their intentions are pure and they know what their doing. Just let yourself relax and concentrate on your work.

Spent 4 great days at Ayamama Mystic. I did 2 ayahuasca ceremonies, which were amazing and very interesting experiences. The shaman is a very inspiring person and Poul a good facilitator. They can answer all your questions and create a program specifically for you depending on how long you stay and on your wishes. They make you feel at home, there is a relaxed atmosphere and comfortable accomodations. So if you’re looking for a place to truly experience an authentic ayahuasca ceremony in a very nice environment, then this is the best place to be.

Peruvian secret garden, hidden in the forests of the Amazon, all Peruvian staff and Shaman ready for a magical journey? follow your diet and expect an experience with potential to change your life! on Ayahuasca ceremony days I strongly recommend to keep your stomach as empty as possible. accommodation is basic, cold water and a mosquito net, that’s it live like the locals. electricity by solar panel in community room, enough to charge phones (if sun shines) Ayahuasca diet consists of veggies and some pollo, no sugar or salt! there won’t be much activities, besides a walk through the jungle and a canoe trip on the rivers. so you will have plenty of time to immerse with nature and revive your energies. the place is peace- and powerful only go if you are true seeker at least a week of stay recommended Señora Juliana will cook the best food to rebuild your energies with love 🌱 don’t forget to bring mosquito repellent 🦟 you will have to carry your luggage for a 20 minutes walk to get to the place..

Ayaymama Mystic is the most incredible sanctuary one could ever imagine. I felt full, i felt love, and i felt at home. I took the journey alone and arrived at a time where raining season met dry season and where I was the only visitor passing through. The attention, ancient wisdom, and love that poured out of Juanito was so felt. His Icaros rang true to my soul, awakening all of my sleeping sentiments of spiritual relevance. Poul was the best coordinator one cold ever ask for. He was fully engaged, reliable, helpful, and a person I now consider a life long friend! My time there was mystical to say the least.Between the mystical full moons, spotting an actual Ayaymama bird, and the brute power of the jungle, I was encouraged to dive deep inside to recognize and reckon my inner being in the arms of the ultimate outer being (Mother Earth). Wedged right in the center of the Amazon Rainforest lies the answers to questions you didn’t know you had. The manner in which the Tambos are situation amidst nature, you will begin to realize how earthly you are, how much a part of the environment you had always been. We are one, and this sentiment resonated throughout my stay from the first moment of my journey.

About Ceremony

Trust in the Process

Ayahuasca ceremony allows for connection between the physical world and the spiritual world, to gain insights and healing. Ceremonies are usually performed at night to work with the mysterious and feminine energy of the medicine. Mother Aya is very grounding and of the earth, so fade into the sounds of the jungle as it is crawling with life. Connecting with nature allows for the medicine to easily connect with us.
It is recommended to attend ceremony wearing light clothes, always enter in the maloca without shoes and with gratitude for a new experience.
The presence of the teacher or shaman, brings a calming and relaxing energy to better prepare your mind heart for a deep healing by mother Aya, Pachamama, mother earth or mother jungle.

What to expect

Once everyone is all settled in, the shaman will begin to sing Icaros, and call in the directions for protection. While consuming the medicine, all of your energy fields become wide open, so the shaman/healer calls in the directions to offer protection from any unwanted spirits or energies and keeps the space safe for healing and growth. Once this process is complete, the shaman will connect with the medicine, and set his intentions for the group, often being around wisdom, harmony, and healing.

At this time it is best to stay relaxed, and patiently wait to be called up to take your dose of the medicine. Once you are called up to the mesa, the shaman will smudge you with Mapacho tobacco to clear your energy. Along with this, you will be asked to take a drop of Florida water, and Timolina, while also rubbing these on your body to purify your energy. The next step is to take the medicine, it is very helpful to hold your intention close to your heart and reflect on it while holding the cup of medicine. Take it with love, for you are receiving a gift of healing.
Once you are finished taking the medicine, you will go back to your space, and this is the time to go inwards and relax your body & mind. Allow the medicine to work with you, and let go of all expectations so that the connection can be made.
After everyone in the group has received the medicine, the shaman will then take their medicine to connect with the room, and the spirit of Aya, for guidance in healing. After they have connected they will begin to sing Icaros which will assist everyone in connecting with the medicine.

Everyone is unique, and their bodies react differently to the medicine. Some may connect instantly, others may take some time to connect, but our best advice is to relax, and quiet the mind so that she(Mother Aya) and connect with you. Often times we get too into our heads and think about what should happen, or is anything happening yet? It is best to get out of our own ways and just let the medicine flow through you.
