Intention and Diet
Before attending a ceremony, please write down what you would like to get more of in your life, as well as what you would like to get rid of. Bring these notes to the retreat as a reminder for yourself. They will be useful during some of the sessions.
Try to truly ask yourself what is needed in your life, not what you think you need. If your intention is pure, Ayahuasca will help you and guide you in the right direction, so speak from your heart and remember that intention, rather than bringing any other expectations!
Prepare the body by not eating too much salt, red meat, dairy, pork, pork fat products, refined sugar, alcohol, or fermented products such as vinegar for at least seven days before the retreat. Also abstain from any drugs including marijuana. It’s best to start your preparation as soon as you can, as this will give you more benefits in the ceremonies. You should also not have sex or masturbate for 48 hours prior to the retreat. Keep in mind that the more you give to your preparation, the more you will receive from the medicine. Be respectful to the plants and the process you will be going through.
