“Once You Drink, You See…
And Once You See, You Can Not Un-See”
Ayahuasca isn’t for everybody… but for those who hear the call, it’s one of the greatest gifts you can ever receive.
Note: This page was created for those who have never drank Ayahuasca before, to answer every one of your questions and make sure you have all the information that you possibly could before embarking to Peru on this transformational ulyourney of a lifetime.
It’s highly recommended that you read every word on this page, as it may be the most valuable page you’ve ever read. But if you’ve already drank before, are certain you want to go to a retreat, and just want the details on our 10 Day Master Plant & Ayahuasca retreats, then this link will bring you straight to the part of the page with that info.
Blessed brother, sister, seeker,
My name is Trinity de Guzman and I know, you’re here, on this page, reading these words, because there’s one thing that draws people to Ayahuasca…
Do you know what it is?
Deep down, inside every person who is called to the medicine:
There’s a questioning.
A desire to know.
To have answers.
To know what is Real.
Ever since you were a child, you may have had this feeling, this internal urge to simply question… Or maybe, just recently, you’ve been feeling your desire to have answers, or meaning, stronger and stronger.
Either way, you may not know exactly what you’re questioning, or what answers you want, but there’s a part of you deep down, your soul’s unbearable yearning, to Remember. To know why you are here, to know what “Truth” is.
And no words can ever give you that answer. It must be experienced. Lived. Truth is not a mental concept that you ‘get’ from the mind… it’s something you live. You feel. You know, from the depths of your Being.
And this part of you, that questions, is what draws you to Ayahuasca – whether you know it or not.
I’ve spoken to hundreds of people who feel the call to this incredible medicine of Awakening & Truth, and that is the common thread, between each and every single one of us.
A desire to know what is ‘real’.
And to this part of you, I write every word on this page. To help you find the answers you’re looking for. The knowingness deep inside, and the meaning of what this life is all about.
I’ll tell you now, this page is long.
Because I know how scary it can be to venture to Peru to drink this plant that you feel a call to, but might not know a lot about.
And because I understand where you’re at, all the questions you may have, and how important it is for you to feel as comfortable as possible in this decision of coming to do an Ayahuasca retreat, I’ve done everything I can to answer every one of your questions, and then some.
But if you already know all about Ayahuasca, maybe you’ve drank before, or you just want to go straight to the ‘meat’ of what our Ayahuasca retreats are about, then you can just click here to fast forward to the part of the page where I talk about our retreats, but feel free to come back and read this whole page later (I really recommend it).
What Is Ayahuasca?
The Ayahuasca medicine is a sacred plant brew that has been used by indigenous Amazonian cultures for thousands of years primarily for healing, divination (connecting with the Divine) and spiritual awakening.
Working with Ayahuasca is an intense, profound, and almost always a highly transformational experience that can facilitate deep healing on all levels of your being; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Ayahuasca is a doorway to inner worlds that allows us access to higher states of consciousness and the experience of spiritual awakening, which is the remembering and experience of your Truth as Spirit, not simply as a human.
To many people it reveals the multi-dimensional nature of reality, yourself and it leads you back to Who You Truly Are, in a deeply experiential way. Not from a mental concept, but from something you get deep down, in every aspect of your Being.
I’ve created an “Ayahuasca Survival Kit” for you to get the most that you possibly could with the medicine. It covers the top 10 things that I feel you need to know, especially if you havn’t drank Ayahuasca before, and really just helps you get the most out of your journey with the medicine. If you havn’t already, click here, learn more about what I’ll send you, and enter your email to get it.
I really recommend it, especially if you’re serious about growing and discovering what this incredible gift of a plant can do for you.
Who Is This Page For?
This page is being written for people who already know what Ayahuasca is, and are drawn to it.
Maybe you’ve never experienced Ayahuasca before, and you’re looking for somewhere and someone to have your first Ayahuasca experience, or maybe you’ve already sat with this profound teacher and medicine.
Either way, whether you’ve experienced it or not, there’s a part of you that feels the call to Ayahuasca. (Again, if you’re still wondering what Ayahuasca is, just click here and we’ll give you everything you need to know.)
By the end of this page you’ll know everything about our Ayahuasca retreats, what they’re about, how they’re different from others and how to apply.
Note: We work strictly on an application-only basis at our retreat center, to ensure the highest quality experience for each guest.
But before getting into all of that I want to share a few words about who we are, but more so, why we’re doing this.
You see, after studying humans, human psychology, what moves people to act, to change, transform and more so, what’s in the way of us experiencing our deepest fulfillment and joy in life…
As I’ve gone through my own (incredibly intense) healing journey in my life, I’ve found a common thread…
We’re All The Same At Our Core
No matter how composed we may look, or even how “successful” or “unsuccessful” we may look from other people’s perspective, we all have stuff within us that… well, we just have to deal with.
We all have stuff we have to heal, past experiences and traumas that shape how we behave in life, that don’t serve us. Painful childhood, unsettled relationships, negative self-talk, whatever it is, we all have fears, insecurities, worries, patterns, beliefs, & pain, sadness and illness within us.
And at the same time, we all really have the same core innate desires for freedom, love, connection, purpose, peace, happiness and ultimately, a life that is meaningful & enjoyable to us.
So the question is, how do we get that?
How Do We Heal Past The ‘Stuff’ Keeping Us Stuck?
How do we get through it and onto the other side of living the life that we so deeply desire?
Maybe there’s something you’ve wanted for a long time, like more money, better health, or a beautiful loving relationship, but it’s not coming.
Maybe there’s some part of you that’s unfulfilled… or a deeper sadness that’s buried within you, that sometimes feels like it’s always there.
Or maybe you have a physical problem in your body, and no matter what you do with diet, exercise, traditional or alternative medicine , it doesn’t seem to go away.
And of course, as I’ve mentioned earlier, there’s this deep sense of questioning. Wanting answers. Not knowing. Maybe a lack of clarity, or a continuous searching for more. You may not even know what ‘more’ is, but you’re looking for answers…
Ayahuasca Isn’t The Answer
Now, the truth is, Ayahuasca isn’t a ‘magic pill’ or drink that will just heal you, or fix you.
The important thing to realize is that Ayahuasca is a tool in your healing, in your growth, and evolution.
It can give you insights and an experience of your Truth, THE Truth – that no words can ever explain – that has literally taken you lifetimes to get to this point, to be ready to fully Wake Up, to remember and live from your Truth as a Divine Being, while still having a physical body.
It isn’t the ‘magic fix’ but what it is, is the fastest way I know of to heal yourself, heal your relationships, your pains, illnesses, hurts, fears, blocks… and get to a place of KNOWING what is Real. What is True. For You.
But Ayahuasca Is…
The fastest way I’ve ever experienced to recognize and remember the central, indestructible, eternal part of yourself that you’ve never seen before, or at least most of us have lost touch with.
And if you’re serious, with the insights you learn from this medicine – and there will be many – you can continue to do the work to live from this place, and go even deeper, without the medicine.
But you have to deeply want to KNOW, and SEEK these answers yourself…
Why Are We Doing This?
“Heal yourself. Heal humanity. Heal the world.”
That is our mission, our burning fiery passion for why we have created this retreat center, The Garden of Peace, where the Andes meet the Amazon, near a small town called Lamas, in the northeast of Peru.
Healing. Awakening. And assisting you in every way we can to KNOWING, not just from the mind, but from every cell of your Being WHO and WHAT you really are.
This is why we are so committed to delivering and facilitating these Ayahuasca retreats and ceremonies, that many call one of the most spiritually meaningful and personally significant experiences of their entire lives.
We see it so clearly. The world needs this healing. There is so much pain, and hurt within people, masked by a false sense of needing to impress others…
The world bombards us with messages, that, on a deep subconscious level, tell us we are inadequate, we are not enough, and so, we are driven by these messages that feed consumerism, to constantly strive for more, and more, and more…
And we’ve lost touch with what really matters. Inner peace. Presence. Love. Freedom. And connection… to ourselves, to mother earth, to those around us… and most importantly, to the Divine within.
I don’t know what your personal beliefs are, and I’m not here to get you to believe anything I say. All I’m saying is that I can see a deep need for healing in this world, and that is the Mission that drives everything we are creating and sharing, by giving you this opportunity to experience this medicine for yourself.
And I feel like it’s very important to say: we’re not doing this for the money. This is about healing. Period. It’s about Awakening, returning to our Truth, and spreading this love that the medicine helps us connect so deeply with, all over the world.
And with that being said, our Ayahuasca retreats aren’t for everybody.
Who Are Our Retreats For?
We are very specific with the people we want to work with. This isn’t about bringing as many people as possible into a retreat, and moving you through, so we can quickly get to the next group.
This is about family. Real connection. Real healing, and about giving you a sacred space and sanctuary away from all the busyness and energy of the city you come from, so you can call this place a home, and come back for countless years to come.
There are two groups of people that our Ayahuasca retreats normally resonate with.
If you’re in the first group, a lot of these statements will resonate with you:
– You feel like there’s something missing in your life, but you don’t exactly know what. Maybe you can feel a sense of “there’s gotta be more than this” and you’re wanting to know what “more” is.
– You want answers. You might not even know what answers you’re looking for, but there’s a questioning and yearning to know, what is real, what matters, a desire for greater purpose & clarity.
– There’s unhappiness within you. Maybe it’s fear of not enough, insecurity about yourself, anger towards others, sadness for different reasons, or simply an emptiness within that yearns to be filled.
– You want to get away. From the busy life, the schedule, the ego, the city, or maybe from parts of yourself: your own pain, fear, or the array of things that keep you down.
– You want more presence. It seems like there’s always something to do, or somewhere to be, and you simply want more peace & stillness.
– You’re frustrated. With life, with how things have been. And you want a change.
– You want clarity. Maybe you ask yourself questions like: “what is my purpose?” “why am I here?” “what am I meant to do with my life?”
– You want healing on all levels of yourself, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. You may not even know what “healing” fully means, or what needs healing within you, but you can feel a part of you that wants it.
Or… if you belong to the second group, a majority of these statements will resonate with you:
– You know you’re here for something great, to make a difference, to give, to share, to help, and you want to step into that more powerfully. You want to live your purpose, share your gifts, and impact people’s lives in a positive way, more than you are now.
– You feel a deep resonance with the word ‘Awakening’ and feel that your life is about an endless journey into the depths of Who You Really Are, and what is ‘Truth’.
– You consider yourself spiritual, and want to go deeper into the depths of Consciousness, the I Am Presence, and the Divinity that you know yourself to be, at your core.
– You believe in a better world, and know that starts within. So you’re called to do your inner work, bring healing and love to parts of yourself that need it most, and in turn, bring that to the world.
Regardless of which of these statements resonated most with you, the first group, or the second, I want you to know, neither is ‘better’ than the other. No matter where you’re at, if you’re still reading these words, we’re here to help.
And of course, on top of feeling the truth in some of the statements above, at your core, the way to know if an Ayahuasca retreat is for you… is if you simply feel the call.
If you do, I’m here to help you in every way I can, to make sure your experience with Ayahuasca is the best it can be, because I truly believe that sitting with this sacred medicine would be one of the greatest things you can ever do for yourself.
Don’t get me wrong, this medicine is definitely NOT for everybody. Only, and I mean ONLY if you resonate with one of the groups above, is this medicine for you.
Who This Is NOT For
And to be 100% clear, this medicine is NOT for you if:
– you are taking any medication that you cannot stop taking, especially any medication that has MAOI inhibitors. MAOI inhibitors are present in many antidepressants, and other medication. Please be sure to do your own research on your medications before applying to our retreats..
Ayahuasca does not mix well with pharmaceutical drugs or many natural supplements, and it’s important that you can clear these from your system before attending one of our Ayahuasca retreats. For details on exact interactions with different medications, times required to clear your system etc, please visit our medical guidelines page.
– you are looking for a ‘magic fix’. This isn’t about taking something and then being fixed forever. Nothing like that exists. No medicine can do that for you. But what this medicine can do is make your journey so much easier, and get you where you want so much faster.
Negative thoughts, habits, patterns, anything that’s kept you stuck, or unhappy inside, seem to automatically be alleviated through taking this medicine… but it’s important that you have the commitment to work with the lessons and realizations that Ayahuasca gives, for them to really be long-term in your life.
– Somebody who just wants an altered state. The only difference between a ‘drug’ and a ‘medicine’ is the intention behind it. If your intention is to heal and go deep, and experience aspects of yourself far greater than any words can ever express, then this is for you…
but if you just want an altered sake for the sake of experiencing it, then we’re sorry to say, but this retreat isn’t for you. The bottom line is, this is about deep healing, on every level. It’s about Awakening, and Truth… and if that isn’t your intention, then our Ayahuasca retreat isn’t for you.
– somebody looking for a vacation. It’s important to say, this is NOT a vacation. This is a very intense, often difficult process. You will have to go into the depths of the shadows within yourself, that aren’t always pretty or enjoyable to look at, in order for you to heal them.
This isn’t about stimulating the senses or anything of that sort, but it’s actually the complete opposite. This is about taking away all the stimulation, all the media & technology, and giving you the space to go deep, within yourself, and your personal healing journey, for the transformation to take place.
It isn’t easy. But nothing has ever been so rewarding to me.
– Somebody who won’t commit to the 10 days. The parts of your ego that we will be working to clear have made ‘a nice home’ in your mind and in your body, and sometimes, as the ego’s last attempt to keep you where you are, your mind may tell you that you should leave in the middle of the retreat.
If you leave, after opening yourself up to these realms of shamanic healing, and do not complete the process, it can often leave the pain, trauma and sadness stronger than before you came, which is why it’s very important that before applying, you can fully commit to the entire 10 day transformational journey.
Bottom line is, this Ayahuasca retreat isn’t for everybody, now you know specifically if this retreat is for you or not.
In the end, we ask and only encourage you to listen to your heart, because that is ultimately all that matters.
If you hear the call to Ayahuasca, then you can not help the fact that you will experience her in one way or another, but what I’ve shared above is to help you know if you’re meant to experience Ayahuasca at our retreat center or not.
And if you’re still not sure, then the following is to help you clearly know which Ayahuasca retreat center is for you.
How Do You Choose An Ayahuasca Retreat?
First of all, this page isn’t about us. It’s about you. And what we can do to help you.
I’m not here to tell you to come our retreat center. I’m here to simply help you in your journey, in any way I can, even if that means you go to a different Ayahuasca retreat center.
In my own journey with Ayahuasca, I’ve found THE most important thing about each time I have ceremony, is WHO I drink with. Who leads the ceremony.
And with the countless shamans that I’ve sat with, the only advice I have for you to know who is best for you to sit with is…
Tune into your intuition. Your gut feeling, your guidance, your heart. And you will know who you’re meant to experience this medicine with. Tune into the intentions behind the people offering you medicine, and… feel.
It’s really quite simple.
Like I said, I’m not here to ‘convince’ you to come to our Ayahuasca retreat. Because I believe that comes from something within you that is far more powerful than the mind (and I couldn’t even if I wanted to).
You know, deep inside, where you’re called to be, and what you’re called to do, and all I can help you do is tune into that more clearly.
Listen to your own heart and truth. Nothing is more important. Whether that’s to do with coming to an Ayahuasca retreat, or anything in your life.
I’m simply here to give you the information, present it to you in a way that is logical and easy to understand, answer all your questions, and then give you the opportunity to come to our retreat center, if you feel the call.
Whatever you feel, listen to that. Unconditionally. Yes or no, it’s not about us. It’s about you and your own needs for your personal and spiritual healing and evolution.
Who Are We? Introducing The Team
I understand, in order for you to tune into the people offering you this medicine, it’s important to know something about them, so, here’s some information about your retreat facilitators & the team behind this beautiful project:
Hegner Paredes Melendez – “The King of the Jungle”
Audio of one of Hegner’s Icaros can be found HERE.
Ashley Avery – “The Host”
Ashley Avery will also play a vital role in your Ayahuasca retreat, as he has also heard the powerful, rare calling to serve the medicine.
As somebody originally born in England, he brings an incredible energy of really understanding where people are at, in the midst of today’s ‘real life challenges’ and brings such an inspiring level of compassion, connection and healing to the space.
He’s my main partner in grounding this beautiful vision of healing and awakening for the world, and he’s said to me again and again, how important it is that we really keep the feel of our center, like a family. About real connection, real healing, real care, for each and every person that comes.
He’s been studying under various curandero’s for over 4 years now, and is what you would call Hegner’s apprentice with the medicine.
Ashley’s mission, his desire to help, and his heart & integrity is so pure, so in it for the HEALING and the service that this medicine brings to the world, it really is such an honor to be able to work with him, and of course Hegner, throughout this all – and I’m sure you will feel the same.
He is so committed to sharing this medicine – the healing, love, and harmony – that after studying the plants for 4 years, he was guided to create a retreat center, to make this medicine more available for people.
Through Ashley’s commitment to his mission and this vision of healing ourselves, humanity, and the world, this retreat center is now a reality.
Ashley plays a very vital role in your Ayahuasca retreat with us, as the host of the land, he will be the one really making sure you get everything you need, that you’re comfortable, and that everything is in place for your deepest healing.
Since Hegner doesn’t speak English fluently, Ashley will also serve as a translator, and plays a priceless role in guiding and facilitating the ceremonies, as he is gifted with incredible musical talent that literally speaks to and moves the medicine within you during the times you need it most.
To summarize Ashley, he is a being of pure love, heart and integrity. He is someone I felt instant brother-kinship with and someone that I know and can feel, is in this all for all the right reasons, with the highest intentions of healing for the world.
Lara Charlotte – “The Divine Feminine”
Lara is Ashley’s partner and co-host at the center.
Born in the remote and powerfully beautiful islands of New Zealand she has always felt a strong spiritual connection to land, nature and the spirits that reside within.
Her journey to this medicine came through leaving the world of cities, stress and a “successful” career in entertainment and marketing to honor a deep call asking her to make health and spirituality the top priorities in her life.
In all honesty there was no other choice as she was suffering the effects of living out of alignment with her Truth, something so many of our guests resonate with.
Lara brings a consistent, loving, strong feminine presence to the center, the land and all ceremonies, embodying those Divine Feminine qualities so crucial to healing and balance in any environment. Nurturing, compassion, the wisdom of cycles, connection, holistic perspective and energetic fluidity.
We’re in a time right now where we as a whole are really waking up to the true power that lays in the Divine Feminine. I truly believe that it’s this energy of the Divine Feminine that is waking up the world – Love, nurturing, compassion, and simply stated, being in the heart.
The Divine Feminine is grounding into the earth, and the masculine energy that has kept us unconscious and is the source of so much of the world’s pain is what is moving up, and returning to the truth of consciousness.
This energy, the Divine Feminine, is the most powerful source of healing in the world right now, and having Lara’s presence does nothing more but ground this priceless energy into everything we are doing, and all guests who come.
Lara practices reiki, reads tarot, writes poetry, dances around the kitchen where she creates wonderful healing foods and laughs a lot.
Having lived a life of great diversity Lara is hard to shock and deeply compassionate.
If and when guests need emotional support or a little guidance through thier process, Lara is on hand to gently direct them back into their strength and inner knowing to continue on their healing journey.
Trinity de Guzman – “The Fairy Boatsman”
I grew up in Vancouver, Canada and was fed the same illusion: make lots of money, and then you’ll be happy. So graduating highschool at 17 years old, honestly, that’s all I wanted.
I was a young inexperienced kid, eager for life, and I chased the carrot that I was told would make me happy. And, I say this without ego, but as an important aspect to explain who I am and why I’m doing this, but by the age of 19 years old, I was making over $10,000 a month, through online marketing.
The thing is, I got there, after working harder than I ever have in my life, dropping everything to make that happen, and when I finally thought I arrived at what I wanted… I was left with even more questions.
And beautifully enough, it’s that questioning, that eventually led me to mother Ayahuasca.
That part of my life led me to realize, what I wanted in life isn’t found outside of me… and it really set me on this journey to look within, which is what I truly believe is the most rewarding, fulfilling journey that possibly exists… because if we look for anything outside of us to make us happy… we will always keep looking (since it doesn’t exist).
This was about 7 years ago. Since then I sold everything I owned, packed everything into one bag, and set off on this world-wide journey to really discover Who I Am… and what is my mission and my purpose in this world.
And now, it’s so clear, it’s simply to spread Awakening, Love, and Truth in the world.
The point of the story is, I’m the person to ‘bridge the gap’, to be what someone has called the “Fairy Boatsman” to bring you from the land of consumerism and “more, more, more” across the mystical waters of the unknown into the land where you can experience this medicine, profound states of Consciousness, and YOURSELF at a level unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.
Where 99% of the world doesn’t even know that Ayahuasca exists (consider yourself blessed), I’m here to spread the word.
As I’ve developed my skills as an ‘online marketer’ (which is simply the ability to spread messages online) the medicine has shown me so clearly that I’m meant to use these skills and direct my energy towards things that really matter in the world: projects dedicated to our collective awakening, healing, growth and evolution.
Now, that’s all I’m about. =)
So that’s the team in a nutshell! But of course, you can’t forget…
Madre, Mother Ayahuasca – “The Vine of The Soul”
“Madre” means mother in English. And Ayahuasca translates to “vine of the soul”.
They call it ‘mother’ for two reasons:
1) You are consuming the sacred medicine of Ayahuasca, which has it’s own chemical effects on the brain and the body, but more than that, you’re sitting with the Spirit of the plant.
This is why when you come to our Ayahuasca retreat it is so important that you really come with pure intentions of your own healing and growth, and you deeply respect and honor the medicine.
None of this is to be taken lightly.
This is not a recreational experience that you ever do for fun. In fact, the whole process can be, and often is, very intense. Challenging. Difficult even. But the beauty of this plant medicine is…
You May Not Get What You Want… But You Always Get What You Need
No matter where you are in your journey, whatever you need to grow, to heal, to let go, to reach your next level… that’s what you will get. And it differs for every single person.
Come to Madre Ayahuasca and all the sacred Master Plants with respect, and reverence, because the gifts they can give you are beyond anything that words or the mind can comprehend, and will serve you every day of your life from then on.
Why “Mother” Ayahuasca?
2) The second reason they call it “Madre Ayahuasca” is because the experience is often very nurturing, healing, and there’s a deep sense of compassion and love, that often goes deeper than anything that people have ever felt before.
Think about what it would be like as a baby, cradled in your mother’s arms, being loved, taken care of, and cherished as the precious being you are… look up, into the eyes of your mother and feel her love as she stares down at you, into your eyes, stroking your head, in complete admiration with a love that only a mother can feel for her child…
This is one way to describe a common experience with Ayahuasca.
And at the same time, remember, a mother can scold you, and get mad at you, but only for your own good, because she loves you, and knows what’s best for you.
If that’s what you get, it’s because that’s what you needed, but the beautiful thing is… it always ends and returns back to an unconditional love more profound than anything you’ve ever experienced.
Mother Ayahuasca. May we always come to her with respect and honor.
Ayahuasca & Marco Polo?
In the 14th century, Marco Polo went to China with his uncle and his father.
When he came back, he started telling people who have never been to China about everything he saw and experienced.
They told him he was crazy, he was hallucinating, he was making it up… he simply replied, no… you can go for yourself.
Suddenly, we’ve found that there’s this ship that can take us to a continent that we never knew existed, but always has. Where there’s all these amazing people, places, things, situations that you never heard about before, that you never knew was real, but with your own two eyes you can see it, and experience it, in a very productive way.
The world around you will come alive in ways that you can not even begin to comprehend with the mind.
In this land you can see your relationships and connections in a way unlike you ever have, with people in your life, with yourself, with the invisible realm.
You feel this interconnectedness with all people and things. A feeling and sense that all is One.
And there’s this incredibly strong, palpable feeling behind it all that this experience at it’s core is more real and more true than everyday waking consciousness.
Then, when you come back from this land, you see, you are much more than your history or different characteristics of your personality… that your life-long questioning and search for peace does have an answer… and you can feel a deep transformation on every level: mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual.
This is Ayahusaca.
Well, these are words that are really only scratching the surface of what you can experience yourself.
I’m not asking you or telling you to believe what I’m sharing. This isn’t about faith or a belief in the unseen. I’m telling you what exists, and it’s simply up to you to feel into your own heart, to know if you are called to experiencing this for yourself.
(And if you’re still reading these words, I’m happy to know you are.)
What Did Buddha & Jesus Mean?
Before, you can meditate for 10 years and, maybe once, you could understand and realize, “Oh, that’s what Buddha or Jesus meant”.
Now, you can do it in 6 hours with Ayahuasca.
What you get won’t necessarily be with you always, but you will get the insight, and if you’re serious, you can start to work with that insight and go deeper for life-long benefits.
But first the door has to open…
And remember, I must say: it’s a beautiful help to have Ayahuasca open the door… as long as you are ready to accept it is not the final solution.
It’s a quantum leap forward in your evolution and in your path, and you will experience higher states of consciousness otherwise not available to you, but it must be accompanied with a life-long commitment towards your growth.
Our 10 Day Master Plant Ayahuasca Retreats – The Complete Details
Your retreat with us would be considered a traditional Amazonian Ayahuasca retreat, that includes 4 Ayahuasca ceremonies, 1 tabacco tea ceremony and most importantly, a diet of “Master Plants”.
You’re already familiar with Ayahuasca, but here’s information on the tabacco tea ceremony, and the Master Plants.
Tabacco Tea Ceremony
This ceremony will be your entry into the 10 day Ayahuasca diet, and will serve to cleanse you to the deepest depths, and prepare you for the rest of your time with us.
It’s not at all enjoyable, but beyond effective, to clean your body of any impurities, so that the medicine and Master Plants can work in their greatest capacity.
The tabacco tea is made from mapacho leaves, which is organic jungle tabacco, and concentrated into a tea form.
The ceremony starts with you drinking a cup of the tabacco tea, shortly followed by liters of fresh spring water (from the land), to induce your purging.
The immediate effects will feel like your organs are contracting, excreting toxins that have been stored in your body throughout your life, into your stomach, and the water acts as a medium to carry these toxins out of your body, as you purge or vomit them out.
Often times, the relationship that we have with vomiting is negative. Maybe you ate some bad food and got sick, or drank too much alcohol, or became sick in some other way, and you remember vomiting as simply something that wasn’t anywhere close to feeling good.
But for those of us who sit with the medicine of Ayahuasca, tabacco tea, or any other purgative plant medicine, the experience of purging is actually one of such great relief.
Since the liquid that’s coming out of you is not just a liquid and toxins, but energetic chains and bondage that have effected you on a level so deep, releasing them in this way can not help but leave you feeling lighter, and more connected to your truth and essence.
Essentially, this is the summary of what happens on a physical level with the tabacco cleanse, or tabacco tea ceremony, but what happens on an energetic level, what you release, what shifts within you, well, words can never explain that, because it’s individual, to help you release what you most need to – whatever that is.
The Master Plants
On top of the tabacco tea ceremony, which happens on Day 1, each day onward until the closing ceremony, you will drink what’s known as a “Master Plant”.
There are a handful of Master Plants from the Amazon, and they’re called Master Plants because they possess a capacity to heal, an energy, and a spirit so strong, that they stand out from all the other countless plants in the jungle. (Ayahuasca and Tabacco are both Master Plants)
Each person will be assigned one or more Master Plants that are specifically, and intuitively chosen for you, by Hegner and Ashley, and will be prepared and served to you every morning between days 2 and 9 of the retreat.
The Master Plants you drink each morning all have different characteristics and attributes that they each uniquely help the body with, and none of the ones you drink each morning will be considered a hallucinogen or psychedelic.
The benefits of the Master Plants varies from everything to strengthening the bones, joints & muscles, to cleaning and healing the organs and blood, to eliminating toxins, to strengthen your intuition & internal vision, to opening your heart, and giving you more energy – to name a few.
Basically, whatever you need help with, there is a Master Plant to help you with that. And that’s why working with this style of Ayahuasca retreats, with Master Plants, and Hegner, who holds a library of plant wisdom within him, is so powerful.
There are really such few words to be able to describe the depth of healing that happens over 10 days while dieting with Master Plants and Ayahuasca. They work hand in hand, and together, with the Ayahuasca diet, take your transformation to a level unparalleled by anything else.
Drinking only Ayahuasca can never bring this depth of healing alone, and the only way you can really understand how powerful this style of retreat is, is to experience it yourself.
The Ayahuasca Diet
There are many elements of this traditional, Amazonian-style Ayahuasca experience, that serve to clean your body, so that the plants can work deeper and deeper as each day progresses in your 10 day journey, and one of the most important aspects of that is the Ayahuasca diet.
Simply stated, it means not eating any sugar, oil, acid or salt during the retreat, which allows all the plants to work even deeper and bring healing on a such deep cellular level within you.
Fortunately, we’ll be preparing all your food during your stay with us, so you don’t have to worry or think about this whatsoever. All you need is a willingness and desire to go deep, and do what’s hard, to come out the other side, brighter, stronger, more connected, and happier, than ever.
You can also visit this page for a more in-depth explanation of the Ayahuasca diet that we follow.
Your Home For 10 Days
Sitting right on the shore of this beautiful river…
You’ll have your own individual personal tambo, which is a 1-story home on stilts, in the heart of the lush, virgin rainforest that our retreat center rests in:
You can hear the relaxing, rushing river just below you, as you sit in your comfortable bug-protected bed, or hammock on your balcony:
This land is absolutely one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, and I’ve been traveling for about 5 years now, and have seen countless beautiful places in the world.
Nothing compares to the raw, rich, lush jungle that we’ve been so blessed to be able to build this center in, the cleansing river that everybody loves to be in, and the crystalline, clear energy that this land so powerfully holds.
Just being here causes transformation.

Maximum of 8 Guests
It’s simple. We’re here to keep the feel of our retreat center like a family.
We don’t want people to come and go, so we can simply move on to the next group.
No, we’re here because we really care. We’re here to offer real connection, real heart, real love, and real healing. Period.
So we’re keeping our group sizes really small, to keep the personal attention and energy cleanest and highest for each of you.
That means there’s a maximum of 8 guests, per retreat.
We don’t want things crowded energetically, and although a lot of your time will be spent on your own, we are here to give you as much personal time that you need with us, to help you understand or process what you’re going through.
Overview of the 10 Day Retreat
Here’s an easy to understand list of what your 10 day Ayahuasca retreat with us will include:
– The retreat will be held in the Amazon jungle of Peru, in the northeast by a town called Lamas (about 1.5 hours away from Tarapoto) – where Ayahuasca is native, where it still grows, and where it’s energy is strongest.
Note: Many people prefer to drink Ayahuasca specifically in the Amazon, as it is very common for people to feel that the medicine works deeper and the connection to the plant and the Spirit of mother Ayahuasca is strongest.
– The length of the retreat will be 10 days, 9 nights, with a total of 4 Ayahuasca ceremonies, 1 tabacco tea ceremony, and Master Plants that are served on 7 of the 10 days.
– Your meals for the entire 10 days are included, which is a traditional Ayahuasca diet of fresh local produce (with plenty of food coming straight from the land).
– Transportation to and from Tarapoto, so your journey here is as easy as possible (especially if you don’t speak Spanish). For more details on how to get here, you can visit this page.
– Accommodation at our retreat center for the 10 days, 9 nights, with a maximum of 8 people per retreat – to keep the experience intimate, and to give you all the space you need, energetically and physically, to go through your healing process.
– Group sharing circles, as well as private consultations with our team, to help you understand, process & integrate your experience. We find that people grow much faster, learn and heal much more, on many levels, with this sharing space and communication available.
– An orientation about Ayahuasca and the ceremonies, and a tour of the land to prepare you for what you can expect, inform you about best practices, and ground you into the energy of your new home for 10 days
– Group introductions and intention sharing to connect with your new family, and release powerful intentions that serve to shape your experience ahead
– You will be given a notebook and pen, as writing your insights and realizations from your Ayahuasca experiences really help you integrate them, so you can take these lessons and bring them into your day-to-day life.
– A ‘flower bath’ which is a traditional bath of sacred plants and flowers from the local surroundings to assist in protecting you, and serve to ground your healing, insights and higher states of consciousness into your life.
– A fire ceremony to close the retreat – as we open a sacred space to deliberately and powerfully release what no longer serves you, and call in and ground, exactly what you want in your life
Overall, when you experience a retreat with us, you will be getting everything we can possibly provide you to make sure your experience, your healing and your transformation is as impactful and long-lasting as it can be.
We are here to make this journey back into Remembering your True Essence, your Divinity, your Truth and Who You Really Are as powerful as it can be, and to hold the space for your Spiritual Awakening and Healing for you to get everything that you came here to get.
Money and Healing?
The bottom line is, this is all about Healing, Awakening, and your Deepest Transformation possible.
But as a retreat center, we have expenses to make sure your experience is the best that it can be.
Unfortunately, I’ve found that there’s quite a stigma around asking for money, for spiritual help or healing.
At the end of the day, this is never about the money. If you really want to come to one of our Master Plant and Ayahuasca Retreats, but the investment is an issue for you, just communicate with us. Let us know your situation, where you’re at, why you really want to come, and why you want to specifically come to our center. We would never want money to be in the way of those who really want to come experience all that is possible with us.
Remember, this isn’t about the money.
Whatever money we collect from guests is simply about perpetuating our mission and vision for the world, and about a fair energetic exchange for all that we put into your experience and your deepest transformation.
After all, this isn’t easy work. Hegner, Ashley, Lara and the whole team in Peru, as well as myself, do so much to not only spread this with the world, but more importantly, keep ourselves in the highest energetic standards of cleanliness, to be in the best vibration, and hold space for your most transformational experience possible.
See, when it comes to serving medicine, we’re literally opening doors and portals to countless dimensions, and it’s the person holding space’s job to make sure you are safe, protected, and in a space where you can do your inner work and release what you need to.
I’ve personally found that many people who serve medicine are not in a space that is energetically clean enough to really hold the space safely, since their vibration is a huge factor in the type of ceremony you experience.
I’m not putting anybody down, I’m simply bringing up a topic that we are very aware of, and do so much in order to keep our energy as clean and clear as possible, for the benefit of all our guests.
Ashley and Hegner spend plenty of time between retreats to diet with the Master Plants to not only clear anything that they may have picked up from guests in their releasing process, but to also keep their vibration and energy as clean as possible.
Think of a curandero or shaman like a bus driver. They can only take you to places that they have been.
It’s the exact same with Ayahuasca and other Master Plants.
Although it’s a co-creation with the medicine, the depths of consciousness and energetic cleaning that you can experience, is a reflection of the energetic space, cleanliness, and consciousness that your curandero is in.
This is why we are so aware, and are so diligent to make sure that every person involved in this project, is as energetically clear and clean as possible.
The Energetic Exchange – Where Your Money Goes
As I touched on earlier, when it comes to payment, this isn’t about the money – this is about an energetic exchange for all the work we do, physically and energetically, to provide only the highest quality experience and Ayahuasca retreats to our guests.
And on top of this, for the sake of transparency, I think you’ll be happy to know that almost all the money we collect, goes right back into this project of spreading Healing, Awakening, and Love in the world, in the following ways:
1) Of course, we pay Hegner generously so that he and his entire family never have to worry about money, and Hegner can focus 100% of his energy on his greatest gifts, of spreading the medicine and healing plants with the world.
2) We pay our amazing team of all-stars who work your retreats, and make this center the best it can be; like Lara, who does so much I would need a page to list it all, the chef, cleaners, driver, gardener & caretaker (who are all proudly Peruvian), as well as additional healers if you’re blessed for some extra loving hands to be here during your stay.
3) Improvements to our retreat center to make your experience for years to come only better and better, and to ultimately turn this land into a completely self-sustainable eco-village, to ground this energy and vision of community, harmony and togetherness, back into the world.
4) Most Importantly… To buy more land, and create more centers in the world!
I’ve been shown, this medicine, especially when coupled with an integrative, wholistic approach, is one of the major keys to our Global Awakening.
So we buy more land, and build more centers, as I’ve been shown I’m meant to build hundreds of these centers around the world.
Yes, hundreds! One in every country! One near every major city in the US!
We’re building completely magical off-grid conscious retreat center communities! Yeah, that’s a mouthful haha. So I call them, in short, 5th dimensional villages.
We bring together the most magical, connected group, who are all so aware of who they really are, and their path in the world, and we come together to serve, all the guests and visitors that come to our retreats that can heal literally any disease a human is suffering from.
And yes, anything. I fully believe that.
This whole vision, this whole project, is to support this vision to manifest. Literally freeing humans from the bondage they suffer in the cities, to debt and their jobs. The only reason people have jobs is to pay for their living expenses, but that debt has them by the neck, so they can’t leave…
What if we can leave the debt, leave the shackles and the illusion and come to one of these 5th dimensional villages, do what you love, support a greater vision for bringing awakening to the whole, and pave the way for what an Awoken Humanity looks like…
All the while, you never have to worry about “living expenses” or a “job”, but you can live a reality where you can live off the land, for free, and get re-connected to all the things that really matter. You know what they are. Community, being together, love, family, friendship, being with nature, gratitude, presence, amazing thriving health… The list goes on.
And I can keep on going, but the point is, literally, the money you put towards this retreat, is being used for the liberation of humanity, by creating villages, for those who are ready to come to, and live a new life. Serving the whole, in every way possible.
Ahhh, that excites me more than ANYTHING!
If you’re interested in learning more about what I’m talking about here, about these 5th dimensional villages we’re creating, and all our advancements in what we are doing to bring Healing & Awakening on a GLOBAL scale… then you can check out this video I made, about how our next project is bringing the first public Ayahuasca Church to America! Legally!
You can also visit this page and leave your email here, to be kept up to date on our amazing world-changing projects.
5) As time progresses, we find more and more ways to give back, and most importantly, serve The Great Awakening.
Right now, we’re saving money from each guest to build a fresh clean water system for the local communities that surround The Garden of Peace, to transport unlimited clean water to them. It will be a hydro-powered pump system to bring them fresh spring water, directly to their village.
Of course, we want to have amazing relationships with the communities around us, and help share what we are receiving in countless ways that will keep showing themselves.
But the bottom line is, when you donate any money to us (we operate as a 508c1 Non-Profit Spiritual Ministry) what you’re really investing and entrusting your money into, is a vision of liberation, joy and freedom for humanity. Every single dollar, every penny, goes in that direction energetically, and with every project we move forward, it’s only possible with your help.
Please, help us make this available to the world! We can’t do this without you.
What Can You Compare This Retreat To?
But week-long personal development seminars, or other spiritual retreats, cost upwards of $4000 or more, which is actually worth it in my opinion. (Of course, it depends on who you go see, but the bottom line is, an investment into yourself is the best one you can ever make)
And plenty of other Ayahuasca retreat centers do not give you a diet with Master Plants. That element of how we hold retreats allows you to go SO much deeper, and take your healing to a whole new level that drinking Ayahausca alone can never do.
Plus, I’ve felt that a lot of retreat centers miss the feeling of family in how they go about their work. This isn’t to put anybody down, but to simply emphasize, that this isn’t about you paying us, getting your healing, and then leaving – this is about building a connection, a relationship, getting to know you, and really help you, in the deepest ways we can.
While other Ayahuasca retreats fill themselves up to have 20+ people per retreat, that simply doesn’t resonate with us, although we could easily do that if we wanted to.
We keep our retreats small, give you as much personal attention and energy as you need, and really take you deep.
So when other Ayahuasca retreat centers ask for $2000 or more, and don’t have many of the elements that we provide for our guests, or when other spiritual retreats or personal development experiences charge, $3000 or $4000, that’s great, they’re worth it. There’s nothing more important than investing in yourself.
Honestly, if we can give this for free, we would, but that simply wouldn’t be much of an energetic exchange, and wouldn’t do anything to help spread this healing with the world.
It’s really hard to price something like this, due to the nature of the experience, the healing, the transformation, and the deep long-lasting impact that will improve every aspect of your life from here on.
It will connect you to the deepest depths of Truth, and Who You Really Are. It’ll give you the answers you’ve been looking for, and will leave you transformed, happy and with your heart wide open, back in the natural great peace and joy of being alive.
Bottom line is, it’ll give you what you need most, whatever that is.
How Much Are Our Retreats?
With everything that I shared on this page, and to make this easily available for the right people, we’ve decided to invite guests for a 10 day Ayahuasca retreat with us for only $1250 USD.
And I will say now, our pricing will increase as our waiting list for our retreats grows, and as we continue to improve the quality of your experience by improving the center and bringing in more healers for each retreat, but for now, it’s only $1250 USD for the entire 10 day experience.
I don’t know when we’ll be increasing our rates, it can happen at any time, but to be in the highest integrity, I’m mentioning it now.
At $1250 for 10 days, that’s only $125 a day, and includes 4 Ayahuasca ceremonies, 1 tobacco tea ceremony, and most importantly a diet with Master Plants. And of course all your food, accommodation and transportation to and from Tarapoto.
(Note: your airfare is not included in the price of the retreat).
Remember, we have an application process to ensure the highest quality experience for every single one of our guests, and to make sure there is a right fit here, so to apply, click the link below, fill out the short form, and we’ll be in touch with you shortly.
We approve a large majority of the people who apply, but with your best interest and all of our guests in mind, it’s really important we learn more about you before we accept anybody to our retreat center.
Please note: ONAC of Ayahuasca Healings does NOT own this Center. The Garden of Peace is related to ONAC of Ayahuasca Healings solely through Trinity’s company Your Highest Truth, which serves as their booking agent.
Why We Chose This Price
I know we’re not the cheapest Ayahuasca retreat out there, and if you’re looking simply for the most inexpensive one you can find, then maybe we’re not the right retreat center for you.
But what I can say is that I don’t know anybody else who brings the same vision, passion, mission and clarity of service for the whole to everything that they do with their center, and what you get when you come to ours is nothing but the highest intention for the Awakening and Healing of the world.
This is about a movement. A movement of Awakening and Consciousness, to bring this 5th dimensional Truth of Ascension, of your natural Divine Essence, into the heart and soul of every being in this world.
Now is the time.
We’ve chosen to do this together. To Wake Up, and clean up everything within us that seperates us from our Divine Truth… that we are Spirit.
We’re not humans having a spiritual experience, we’re Spirit, having a human experience.
And it’s up to Awoken, Conscious beings like you and I who feel this unbearable calling to serve in The Great Awakening, to come together, heal together, love together, and ground this into the world.
Everything we do, everything we’re about, is for this vision. For this movement, and any money that we ever collect from our guests, in some way, some how, it is always, always being used to ground this vision into the world.
Ashley and I are simple beings, we don’t need very much to make us happy. And I make money in other ways. This is my passion project, my gift back, my baby of service, and every dollar that comes our way is channeled and moved in another direction for Healing, Love, and Awakening.
I see myself as a stuard of money. A sheppard, and a channel. Money comes to me, so I can redirect it for projects of Awakening. Period.
For projects like this, and more retreat centers, all over the world, where people can come back to their Divine Remembering of what matters most…
Please read our Mission & Vision here, to learn more about what you’re really helping to create in the world – a Beautiful Awoken New Earth – when you come to our retreat center.
So, if you just want a cheaper Ayahuasca retreat, great, I support you in your decision. But this is one of the most transformational experiences of your entire life, and I wouldn’t let price effect your decision.
Simply ask, what is most important to me? And follow that.
And this applies not only to choosing an ayahuasca retreat, but for every aspect of your life, if you only want to live and create the life of your dreams.
Really, you can’t put a price on this type of healing or transformation.
Every single person who’s come to work with the medicine that I know of, has been beyond happy with their experience, their level of healing, what they’ve released, and the overall impact and improvement that they feel within, and in their lives.
Healing like this doesn’t come in any other way that I know of. Transformation like this is not possible with anything else that I’ve ever experienced. And an expansion of your consciousness, and the ability to let go of your stories and illusions that keep you unhappy or stuck, has never before been so available, than with this sacred medicine.
If you want to be a monk, or meditate for years, that’s another way you can get a glimpse into these states of being and realizations, but honestly, why would you if you can also take this profound gift of a medicine and potentially have the insight in one night?
And more importantly, what other options do you have? What have you tried before, that didn’t work? And what else do you know of that’s out there, that can help you in this way?
I’ve never seen anything help so many people, so deeply, and so quickly, which is why I’ve dedicated so much energy to share this with the world.
Ultimately, we can talk for hours about this medicine, but at the end of the day, there’s only one thing that matters, and that’s experiencing it for yourself.
So I’m going to stop talking, wrap up this letter, and if you feel the call to apply, great, if not, that’s perfect too. I only ever want you to do what feels best to you.
Below is a schedule of our retreats:
August 14 – August 25, 2016 (Women’s only 12 days)

When you click the link above, a new tab will open in your browser, showing you which retreats are full, and which you can still apply for.
In the application, we’ll ask you what your preferred dates are, and a backup option if it’s full.
Once you’ve clarified which dates you want, then you can proceed with your application here.
Why Do You Have To Apply?
Simply stated, to keep this experience as safe as possible, for everybody involved.
As I’ve mentioned, before we can accept someone into our retreat center, we have to know more about you, to ensure this is a good fit for you, and most importantly, that you are mentally and physically in the right condition to take the sacred plant medicine of Ayahuasca.
We ask you basic questions, regarding your experience with Ayahuasca, your desire & intentions, and if you are taking any medication, to name a few.
This is just a standard procedure before accepting anybody into our center, and ultimately to ensure that we are able to help you to the best of our ability.
What To Expect Once You Apply
Once we’ve received your application, if we feel like there is a clear alignment for us to work together, we will contact you via email letting you know your next steps, which would be an interview process via Skype.
We’re 100% serious about ONLY working with people who are truly serious about their inner work and healing, and who really look at this as one of the most profound experiences you can have in your life.
That means, when you leave, you don’t just go back to your old way of living, but you’re willing to continue to apply the teachings that these Master Plants give to you. The door will open for you, but you need to keep applying what you learned, to keep it open.
So, if we feel like you’re that kind of person, then after getting on the phone with you and feeling if our intentions align, then we’ll let you know how you can confirm your retreat with us.
We’ll also really help you get clear on your intentions, and help you pave the path for the best experience you can have. After all, all we care about is your deepest transformation, so we use this high-touch approach before accepting anybody into our center.
We get a lot of applicants, and only have 8 spots per retreat, so this step is crucial for everybody’s highest service.
If you’re approved, a deposit of 17% of the cost of the retreat ($213) will be required to secure your spot, and then the remainder ($1037) will be paid to us at The Garden of Peace in US cash, once you arrive at our retreat center on the first day.
We will send you detailed instructions for how to get to our retreat center from Lima, with step-by-step instructions even if you don’t speak Spanish.
We will pick you up on the first day of the retreat in a town in the north east of Peru called Tarapoto. This will all be in the confirmation email we will send you, if accepted to our retreat center.
And on top of that, we will send you a guide for how to prepare, more details on what to expect and how to get the most out of your Ayahuasca retreat with us.
We really go to far lengths to make this journey into yourself, and into this realm of higher states of consciousness, expanded awareness and deep healing as stream-lined and easy as possible for you.
Heal ourselves. Heal humanity. Heal the world.
This is the vision and mission that drives everything we do, and why we are so committed to sharing this medicine with you and the world.
The degrees of healing, what you can release and let go of, the answers, insights and realizations that come from this medicine, really are unparalleled to anything else I’ve discovered in the world.
I have such a deep connection with this plant teacher and this sacred medicine, and why I have poured my heart and soul into creating this site for you, to help you in your journey.
I hope you can see and feel the purest intentions and love that I have for you, and the world, through everything I’ve shared with you today.
Moving forward with this today is one quantum leap towards a happier, more fulfilled, connected, loving, free you, connected with the Truth of Who and What You Really Are, and really, to give you the answers that your heart and soul have been yearning for.
At the end of the day, I know this decision isn’t up to the mind, it’s up to the heart, and if you hear the call, you hear the call.
If that’s the case, there’s nothing you can do to stop the fact that the medicine and you are going to sit together. The only question is when? And where?
I have done everything in my power to paint a clear picture for you, and ‘get the mind on the heart’s side’ so to say.
I feel like it is my role and duty, to speak to those who this medicine is for, and if you meet the criteria that I mentioned earlier in “Who Are Our Retreats For?” then… I can say with all integrity, that this is the BEST decision you can make for yourself.
But don’t take my word for it. Listen to your heart. You’ll know if this is for you.
It’s my job as a messenger to share this medicine with the world, to communicate as clearly as I can, what this medicine is, how Ayahuasca and the Master Plants can help you, and what you can do to experience them for yourself.
I’m here to help you get over any fears, have all your questions answered and to ensure that you are well informed and feel safe before moving forward with us.
I know this page was long, but it’s because I know this is a big decision. In fact, this might be one of the most important decisions of your life.
For the right person, you can probably feel ‘butterflies in your stomach’ or a deep sense of awe… that this experience is exactly what you need, exactly what you’ve been looking for – the answer to your questions.
Allow yourself to feel those feelings, they’re here to guide you.
Feel into your heart, not your mind.
I want to make sure I do everything in my power to educate you, to prepare you and to ultimately help you in this deep transformation and healing journey that you’re about to embark on.
I’ve had so much to say, yet, at the same time, no words can fully express what you will experience for yourself.
Ayahuasca, and the experience you will have is so far beyond words, absolutely nothing I say can even scratch the surface of your own journey with the medicine.
Transcendental. Spiritual Awakening. Unconditional Love. One-ness. A deeper connection with all, and the Universe unlike anything you can imagine. The Truth.
I’ve done my best with words, but it’s time for you to experience it for yourself.
Come join us, let us help you, or more so, let the sacred plant teacher of Ayahuasca and the other Master Plants help you.
We look so forward to serving you in this transformational journey unlike any other.
With so much love, here to serve,
Trinity de Guzman, Madre Ayahuasca & The Garden of Peace Family
PS – We need this medicine.
I truly believe the world, and every single human being, can benefit from this medicine.
We all have pain, sadness, hurt, body issues, insecurities, fears, negative thought patterns, relationships and experiences in our life, like times in our childhood, that we need to heal.
Every single one of us, whether we like to admit it or not.
Regardless of if we are aware of them, these parts exist within us, and they are effecting the quality of the life we live.
We all need healing. Love. Compassion. Understanding.
It’s time for us to dig deep, face our shadows, gather our strength, and step forward in the direction of the life we know we’re here to live, and the person we know we’re meant to be.
One by one, as we heal ourselves, we heal the world.
It’s not the world that needs peace. It’s people. And when we can find peace in our own hearts, this world will have peace.
If you’re still reading these words, then there’s no doubt that the medicine calls to you. We are here to make your journey with Ayahuasca as magical and beautiful as possible, and when you attend one of our retreats you’ll be able to look back at it forever as the moment in your life where everything shifted.
PPS – Questions?
Do you have any questions?
PPPS – Free Coaching After Your Ayahuasca Retreat
I saved this for last because I feel it is the most important.
Nobody else is offering this. Why? I really don’t know. The need for this is so huge, and I’ve heard about people wanting this, in so many different situations.
Which is why, for all people who attend our Ayahuasca retreats, you will also receive post-retreat integration support and coaching, for a whole year.
What that means is, for 12 months after your Ayahuasca retreat with us, every month, I will get together with you and other blessed beings who have attended our Ayahuasca retreats, and support you in your integration, back into the ‘concrete jungle’ (your hometown).
When I first went to Peru, I was there for 9 months, and sat with madre Ayahuasca almost weekly. Coming back to the “modern world” was a disaster. I had no idea how to deal with all the energy. I was so open & sensitive. I could see through the values system that is so backwards. And all the unhappiness…
I was so overwhelmed, I couldn’t deal with it. The only time I would be at peace is if I was alone in a room by myself.
I was an extreme circumstance, and in no way at all am I saying that’s going to happen to you, but what I am saying is that coming back to your hometown can be hard. Really hard.
You come to an Ayahuasca retreat, and you have the most transformational experience of your entire life. All the things you wanted help with, you get. All the things you’ve intended to let go of, or release, you have. And all the questions you wanted answers to, you have.
You do this deep medicine and transformational work, you open yourself up so much, you let go of so much, and then you go back to a city or town where everybody is swimming in their unconsciousness. You’re surrounded by people who just don’t have any idea about what you just went through, and where the energy is so dense. Where the values that drive people are so backwards. And you can see through it so clearly. You can feel so much more deeply.
This all adds up to a really difficult time coming back to your hometown.
It’s really hard to get a grip on everything, to return back to your daily routine, while really grounding the deep energetic and cellular transformation that just happened to you.
I hope that paints a clear picture, because I can’t stress the importance of how much this integration support is needed. Without it, and, like many people, after their Ayahuasca retreat, they end up back the way they were after some time, or sometimes worse.
The point is. I see this. I see the need for this support, and I’m here for you in every way that I can be – especially with this.
So as somebody with years of professional coaching experience, working with beliefs, personal power and clearing the limitations we place on ourselves that either allow us to THRIVE or to struggle in life… and as somebody who’s learned over a dozen healing modalities, who’s been through this exact experience that I described above – I have so much to offer you on these calls, and in your integration back into the real world.
I’m really happy to share this, because like I said, nobody is offering this, but this is one of the most important elements of a truly transformational Ayahuasca experience – if not THE most important.
You’ll see for yourself, after your retreat, how much this will help ground all the lessons, shifts and epiphanies you receive into a deep transformation into every area of your life.
And I look so forward to supporting you in exactly that, in every way I can!
You’ll get the full details on the post-retreat integration coaching after you fill out your application, and after you’re approved & registered by paying your deposit.
Thank you so much for joining me in this journey that we walked on together today.
I really look so forward to seeing how I can continue to help you, serve you, and be here for you in your journey of Healing, Awakening, and into the depths of Who You Really Are.
Endless, truly endless, love & blessings your way. <3
