We understand that the Ayahuasca Retreats, process can awaken a variety of emotions, memories, and experiences that can be difficult to face or process. For this reason, we have a team of skilled, compassionate facilitators and healers on hand to assist whenever necessary. Plant medicine and other Ayahuasca healing modalities can sometimes bring to the surface aspects of the subconscious that we need to face in order to work through trauma, dysfunction, and imbalance. Discovering truths that have been hidden or that we have pushed into our ‘shadow’ (our subconscious) can be scary or painful, and the importance of an environment without fear of judgment or criticism is an essential component of the healing process.

Our facilitators are Westerners and thus are able to help bridge the gap between the energetic Ayahuasca healing carried out by the healers, and the emotional processing that tends to accompany this work. They themselves have personal experience in ‘shadow work’ – facing and integrating their own traumas, and as such, are able to share personal experiences and hold compassionate space for others undertaking similar work

By gently guiding each guest through the process of awakening and exploring their own inner landscape, facilitators can help guests enhance their innate healing intelligence activated by the healing modalities they experience.
