FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions

Is Ayahuasca suitable for everyone?

Ayahuasca is a powerful plant medicine that allows for profound insights and healing on different levels. However, it is not suitable for everyone. There are some prerequisites and restrictions that need to be taken into account to ensure that participating in the Ayahuasca retreat is safe and enriching for you and the other participants.

An important factor is your physical and mental health. If you have certain medical conditions or are taking medication, it is important to discuss your health concerns with us before participating in the retreat so that we can make an informed decision together. Please contact us in advance for this purpose.

Finally, it is important that you feel emotionally and spiritually ready for the experience. Ayahuasca can evoke intense emotions and confront you with aspects of yourself that may be challenging. An open, curious, and willing attitude is essential for getting the most out of this experience.

Overall, Ayahuasca is a profound and healing experience for many people, but it is important to carefully consider your individual circumstances and listen to your inner guidance to determine if it is suitable for you.

How do you ensure the safety and well-being of participants during the Ayahuasca retreat?

We place a great emphasis on the safety and well-being of our participants during the Ayahuasca retreat. On the first night, we offer a smaller dose of Ayahuasca for introduction purposes, so you can ease into the experience. On the second night, you have the opportunity to adjust the intensity of the experience to your personal needs.

Our ceremonies are accompanied by higher, invisible forces that provide safety during and after the ceremony. Nevertheless, Mother Ayahuasca can be confrontational. It is possible that you may be confronted with unpleasant topics from your past or have to face certain fears. However, with over 20 years of experience, we can assure you that these experiences serve your personal growth, strengthen you, and your soul has been seeking such valuable and profound lessons for a long time.

An Ayahuasca retreat is comparable to a roller coaster ride: some people immediately enjoy being tossed back and forth, while others must first overcome certain fears to experience this joy. However, in the end, everyone arrives safely and enriched with valuable experiences.

We are supportive throughout the entire retreat and ensure that you feel safe and secure while undertaking this transformative journey.

How do I best prepare for the retreat? ๐ŸŒฟโœจ

Good preparation for the Ayahuasca retreat can make a difference when it comes to having a deeper and more fulfilling experience. Here are some steps that can help you prepare for the retreat:

  1. Set an intention ๐ŸŒŸ
    Take some time to listen to yourself and figure out what you want to gain from this experience. A clear intention can help you make your inner journey more focused and purposeful.
  2. Diet and nutrition ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฅฆ
    Pay attention to a balanced and healthy diet in the days before the retreat. Avoid alcohol, pork, and other heavy foods that are hard to digest. A light body feels more comfortable during the ceremony and allows for a deeper connection to the plant medicine. We recommend the 10-day transformation for optimal preparation, where you detoxify and cleanse your body gently to be best prepared for the retreat. To help you implement the transformation, we offer an info call where you can get all the important information and have open questions answered.
  3. Meditation and mindfulness practice ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ
    In the weeks leading up to the retreat, it can be helpful to meditate regularly or practice mindfulness exercises. These practices help you cultivate a calm and centered state of mind, which can be beneficial during the ceremony.
  4. Physical activity ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช
    Stay active and pay attention to regular exercise to prepare your body for the experience. Yoga, hiking, or gentle stretching can help you open up physically and mentally.
  5. Self-reflection and emotional preparation ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ญ
    Take some time to reflect on your life, relationships, and inner processes. Perhaps write in a journal or talk to friends or therapists about your thoughts and feelings. This can help you prepare for the inner journeys you will experience during the retreat.

By carefully preparing for the retreat, you create a solid foundation for a profound and transformative experience.

What Happens During an Ayahuasca Ceremony?

During an Ayahuasca ceremony ๐ŸŒฟโœจ, you experience a deep, personal, and transformative journey into your innermost being. Each experience is unique and individual, based on your own inner processes and spiritual growth.

The experienced ceremony master and plant medicine expert, Dr. Wolfgang Himmelbauer, leads the ceremonies with great dedication and decades of experience. He creates a protected and loving space in which you can feel safe and secure to fully engage in your inner journey.

The ceremonies begin in the evening, once it's dark ๐ŸŒ™, and last until the early morning hours. You will first bring your intentions, visions, and wishes into a shared circle. Afterwards, the Ayahuasca medicine is served in a ritual and respectful manner.

During the ceremony, deep insights, emotional healing processes, and spiritual experiences can occur. You may experience visual perceptions, intense feelings, and an expanded consciousness. It is important to surrender to the experience and trust the inner guidance of Mother Ayahuasca.

Throughout the night, the ceremony master will sing Ikaros, sacred songs, to support and guide the healing process. The sound of music and singing helps you connect with the energy of the plant medicine and deepen your inner journey.

After the ceremony, there will be time to share your experiences in a shared circle and exchange valuable insights. Dr. Himmelbauer is available to support you with his wisdom and experience and help you integrate your experiences.

It is important to emphasize that an Ayahuasca ceremony is not a magical solution to all problems, but a powerful tool for personal growth and spiritual development. The true healing and transformation often begin only after the ceremony when you integrate the insights and experiences into your everyday life. ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ซ

How many participants are there at the retreats?

At our Ayahuasca retreats, we place great emphasis on an intimate and family-like atmosphere to ensure the best possible care and support for each participant. Therefore, we limit the number of participants to a maximum of 12 people.

This limited number of participants allows each individual to have sufficient space for personal growth, deep healing, and individual support throughout the entire retreat. It is important to us that you feel safe and supported during this transformative journey.

Do I have to participate in all three ceremonies or can I just attend one?

At our retreats, our goal is to provide participants with a profound and holistic experience with Ayahuasca. For this reason, we only offer the option to participate in all three ceremonies. ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒ•

We believe that attending all three ceremonies is essential to gain the maximum benefit and the most comprehensive understanding of the plant medicine. The successive sessions allow you to dive deeper into your personal healing process and experience a sustainable transformation. โœจ๐Ÿ’ซ

What can I expect after the retreat? How can I integrate the experiences?

After the retreat, you can expect a variety of changes in your life. The experiences with Ayahuasca can be profound and help you gain new perspectives, insights, and healing.

Integration of these experiences is an essential part of the process. Here are some tips to help you with integration after the retreat:

  1. Self-reflection: Take time to reflect on the experiences and insights gained during the retreat. Write them down and think about how they can impact your life.
  2. Meditation and mindfulness: Cultivate inner peace and awareness of the present moment through regular meditation and mindfulness practices. They help to clear the mind and focus on intuition.
  3. Conversations and sharing: Talk to other participants, friends, or family members about your experiences. The exchange can help deepen insights and support integration.
  4. Self-care: Take care of your body, mind, and soul. Give yourself space for rest, relaxation, and self-care. Eat healthily and take time for activities that bring you joy and fulfillment.

The integration of experiences is an ongoing process, and each person is different. Give yourself time and space to fully integrate the insights and healing gained during the retreat into your life.
