It’s December of 2013.
I just landed in Vancouver, Canada after living
in Peru for 9 months.
I just had the most life-changing period of my life.
There is a joy, a fullness, a LOVE of life and
an excitement for all unfolding around me.
But like a kid excited for Christmas, waking up
to no presents under the tree, I went home…
By this time, it’s been over 3 years since
I was last in Vancouver.
I was excited to see my family, but what happened
to me, I wasn’t even close to prepared for.
I was just living in Peru, doing the deepest
healing and medicine work.
I didn’t realize how open and sensitive I
All of a sudden, when I was back in Vancouver,
all my love, joy and excitement was clouded
over by a deep sadness. Depression, even.
I didn’t know why.
I thought something was wrong with me.
But one day sitting in meditation, I saw:
The emotion I was feeling wasn’t my own.
It was the density – the heaviness – of the city.
It’s like I could feel everybody’s anxiety, sadness,
depression, discomfort and even emptiness.
For an entire month, the only thing that helped me
was meditation. I’m so grateful I had this…
It was my savior beyond belief, and if you don’t
already have a meditation practice, I recommend
it more than anything.
I’ll share more about this in my next email.
The point is –
I learned so much during this time.
Especially, how to protect myself from other
And I realized:
So many people go to Peru to experience Ayahuasca,
I’m SURE I’m not the only person who has a hard
time coming back to the “city life”.
And this is when I saw so clearly, how people
NEED support after their Ayahuasca retreats.
So many retreat centers just send people off after
their retreat and there is no follow-up.
This is irresponsible in my opinion.
And this is when I saw, as we were creating our
first Ayahuasca center at the time, we HAVE to
support our guests after their retreat.
This is why when you come to our healing center
in Peru, we give you this much-needed and
widely-forgotten piece to your healing:
Post-retreat integration and support.
This is even MORE important than having a
And why many people choose our retreat
over any other.
I just heard from Selina, one of the amazing
leaders of our retreats, that a guest just
came to our retreat for the third time.
That says a lot.
If you feel our heart, our passion, and our
commitment to providing the most valuable
and transformational retreat possible.
This is for you.
We’ll speak again soon!
With so much love!

What does it really do for us?
Is the goal to really silence our mind?

This one will be good!
