Tour Option : Ayahuasca Session
The ayahuasca is considered an ancient healing medicine prepared with the chacruna or Psychotria viridis, another medicinal plant proper of our Amazon forest, and it will help you in the process of discovering your most inner being, led by a spiritual guide or shaman. It is utilised to attain an expansion of our conscience and the harmony within ourselves through an encounter with our deepest self, nature and the sense of transcendence, to then be able to share it with our fellow men and women. The word “aya” means “spirit” or “dead” in Quechua, while “huasca” means “rope” (hence, the rope of the dead)
