Ceremony Organization

The ayahuasca ceremony in Cusco is a good option to the people who want to try ayahuasca retreat. Cusco has jungle and a special energy, conducive to doing this kind of ritual. The ceremony actually takes place outside of Cusco in the Sacred Valley.

Before the Ceremony

The people interested in an Ayahuasca Ceremony retreat will have a preliminary conversation (briefing) with the Shaman or healer who will perform their Ayahuasca ceremony, in order to allow the Shaman to diagnose the person´s physical and emotional condition. It is also to gain an insight into the interest that she/he has in the use of this medicinal plant, so that a mutual relationship of trust can be formed between the participants and their shaman who will perform the Ayahuasca ceremony retreat.

The Day of the Ayahuasca Ceremony

The Ayahuasca ceremony retreat takes place at night, from 7:00 p.m. on and this is in order to get a better response from the Master Medicinal Plant´s effects. 

After 30 minutes of having ingested the ayahausca beverage, the participant will have a different perception of his/her body and will feel somewhat disoriented, something similar to the effect of alcohol. 

Possible vomiting or expulsion of the ingested ayahuasca beverage might occur, but without any bad smell of vomit, as only what has been ingested is being expulsed. In some cases, it might happen that diarrhea might serve as a purge for the organism or simply, it is possible that the participant might not feel any of these sensations and this will greatly depend on his/her physical and emotional state, as well as on whether he/she has correctly followed the indications given by the Shaman and the agency. 

Then, the participant enters into a state of trance and starts to have visions, exploring his/her life, in an interrelation with the Cosmos and the Universe and a contact is frequently made with the “Pacha Mama” or Mother Earth. But, regarding the visions that one might have, this is not a constant factor in all individuals and much of it depends on the participant´s general state of health, as well as on his/her physical, mental and emotional impetus. The effects of the plant last about 3 hours and a half, depending on each participant´s general condition. (Of course, if the participant is blocked or didn´t follow the indicated diet, he/she generally won´t have any vision at all). 

After the hours of trance have gone by, the participants will feel somewhat tired and will simply rest until the next day, to then get back to their respective hotel.

After the Ayahuasca Ceremony

After the Ayahuasca ceremony, each participant will have an analysis and conclusion conversation with the shipibo Shaman about everything that happened during the Ayahuasca ceremony and especially, on their general state, as well as on the interpretation of visions if they had any, in order to offer them a complete service and eliminate doubts regarding all of what they had the chance to experience during the process of the ceremony.
