I stayed here for two weeks In March and the group I met up with had seven Ayahuasca ceremonies. We were given fantastic tasting superfood smoothies each morning and other healthy meals during the day which I've tried to replicate since I got home to Scotland but obviously don't have access to many of the natural ingredients so have had to use supplements and alternatives. I've still managed to keep the stone of weight off that I lost from the amazing food we were treated to there. It's a memory that will never be forgotten and I've found that a mountain of negativity has been lifted from my shoulders. The main phobia I had which was a fear of flying has disappeared since the retreat and I'm studying for my private pilots licence which I would never have considered. I've never met someone like "Slocum" (retreat owner) with such a vast nutritional knowledge and understanding of how the body and mind work. After the retreat I went on a four night Jungle expedition from Nauta but I was left a bit disappointed with this as I'd seen so much wildlife within the retreat grounds and even a Rainbow Boa during ceremony one evening which was an impressive sight for us all. I would definitely go here again but would visit at the end of our Scottish summer instead of the coldest part of our Winter so I'm bit better conditioned for the heat of the jungle.
Thank you Slocum
