Before You Come

BEFORE YOU COME

INTENTION

Before doing an ayahuasca retreat, take some time and reflect on what you’re searching for. We recommend that you meditate and write down your wishes with ayahuasca. This is important and is a method used by many healing centers to make the most of your time here. Read more about integrating post-ayahuasca here.

DIET

Try to stay on a healthy diet at least two weeks prior the retreat; avoid greasy and heavily processed food. Cut out candy and sodas, drugs and alcohol. Meat is perfectly fine but pork is not recommended. Exercise is a good idea too, walks, yoga, swimming, or whatever you like to do.
