Participants discuss their experiences on the six week course.
If you’re thinking about coming, it’s very challenging. This is probably the most trying and difficult thing that I’ve ever done in my life. It was really a challenge. I had a pretty good idea that that’s what this was gonna be when I signed up for it, and my whole purpose in coming was to immerse myself in working with ayahuasca and getting really really deep into it, which I had never managed to accomplish in my previous two experiences, which were very good, but they weren’t immersive by any means. So, if you’re really interested in deeply working with ayahuasca and really immersing yourself in the experience, I highly recommend this.
Indescribable. Utterly life changing on the most profound level. Words cant express how grateful I am to the healing I’ve received, the learning I’ve achieved and I feel like I came here as a little girl and I am going to leave here as a woman.
The course was… I don’t have the words to describe the course. There’s so many things that happened in such a short space of time. It was very interesting, eye-opening, humbling at times, hard… so it was a roller coaster of emotions starting from day one and finishing yesterday, practically. Every single day is just jam packed and you’re being tested on multiple levels constantly, in a good way, but definitely not a walk in the park to any extent.
The course was amazing, challenging, but amazing, really fun, but a lot of introspection, a lot of going inside to really find the answers within myself rather than anywhere else, which I did before, through books, or studying different religions, or trying to follow a regiment. Whereas with this the course just basically helped me dive into myself and find the answers to my questions more from experience. I got a lot of first hand experience of what the spiritual world is and what it is actually about rather than reading and trying to theorize things and always be in doubt. This helped me build my faith a lot in spirits, the spirit realm and the spirit world. The course was amazing.
The initiation course was a bonus for me, because I was really here for the physical part. I worked a lot. Don Enrique, he’s an amazing doctor. I feel so blessed to have so much plant medicine inside of my body, all the spirits here, and the ayahuasca healing my physical body. The initiation course was the bonus but it was amazing amazing. I do this work in Holland, but to work with don Enrique and to experience the origin of the work that we also give. It was amazing. I learned a lot and I’m so glad to bring it back to Holland and work with it.
The course was incredible, really, very comprehensive. It’s a real intense six weeks. It’s not a lot of free time. It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s really incredible. You learn a lot, not just a lot about the plant medicine and the Shipibo tradition, but also a lot about yourself, a lot about human relationships and how important it is to have respect and awareness towards the way you treat yourself, the way you treat others, and the way you treat the environment around you.
I came down here to learn, to gather data for my book, to become a healer, and all of that’s happened, but there was a lot of other work, things that I couldn’t have expected or foreseen. The amount of psychic and psychological depth that ayahuasca took me on in the last six weeks has been remarkable. I probably got forty years of psychotherapy in the last six weeks and it’s gonna be quite a while before I process and integrate it all but it’s there now. And in the meantime, I met some fabulous people. I had some fun experiences, we laughed a lot. We held each others hands when things were hard. We formed life long friendships here in the jungle. My take on this is if your motive is to come down here to learn how to be healer, this is perhaps the most rewarding way possible to do it.
I came here primarily for my personal healing and it was brilliant. I can’t think of another program for myself that could have been as successful, as complete, and as totally getting in to the root causes of problems, issues, traumas, toxicities, etc. in my life that I met here. I really dealt with everything.
