Our ceremonies are conducted in a Maloca or “meeting house”.
On the day of ceremony you will eat breakfast and lunch only, we do not eat dinner on ceremony nights. You will be asked to spend some time in nature, meditating on your intention for the nights ceremony. Please bring a long sleeve shirt or a wrap in case you get cold.
What to bring to ceremony:
- small torch, preferably with a red light
- water bottle
- long sleeve shirt or wrap
A Typical Ayahuasca Ceremony:
- Ceremony starts with each person being invited up to drink the medicine.
- Once everyone is served the candle goes out and we ask everyone to remain silent until the ceremony is over.
- Ceremony will last between 3-5 hours during which the shaman sings “icaros” and does any specific healings they feel are necessary.
- The ayahuasca will take effect between 20mins – 40mins
- After ceremony we put a candle on and give thanks to the shaman & the participants.
Some people will still be feeling the effects of the medicine so we do a brief check in with each person to see where they’re at. Some people feel energized and like to talk, others prefer to contemplate their experience in silence. The talkers are invited to the common house for a cup of tea, while those still in the medicine are welcome to stay in the maloca for as long as they need, a caretaker will stay with them.
The day after ceremony we return to the maloca for a circle meeting to discuss your experience.
