In order to achieve the most benefit from an program with the Ayahuasca Foundation, we have begun working with trained counselors in the United States to offer pre and post ayahuasca counseling sessions. AyaHelp.com was formed in 2015 to facilitate the preparation and integration processes before and after an ayahuasca healing retreat, course, or ceremony. David and Rachel are both university trained counselors with exceptional experience working with ayahuasca, as well as other shamanic and complimentary practices. They are both caring and compassionate people who understand the power of listening and who’s insights and interpretations can be incredibly valuable when questions arise about the healing tradition of the amazon and ayahuasca, in particular. All of the Ayahuasca Foundation’s programs include one pre-ayahuasca counseling session prior to the program, and one post-ayahuasca counseling session after the program. We recommend continuing with the counseling sessions, especially after the program, but any sessions beyond the preliminary sessions are not provided by the Ayahuasca Foundation and must be paid for separately.
