my Experience in psychotravels


What is Ayahuasca or Yage ?


Ayahuasca or Yagé is used for many reasons, amongst them, spirituality, connection with yourself and the nature, healing, counsciousnes and understanding. This is a millenary tradition practiced in Amazon and South America, it is also called: the mirror of your consciousness. The word Ayahuasca has an special meaning: ( Aya: soul, huasca: vine ). It is always used by mixing it with chacruna (phsychotria vidrios) to support better absorption by the gastrointestinal tract.

This medicine creates a mirror of your consciousness and through it, generates healing, creating heightened states of consciousness, understanding and spirituality.

The base of this concoction is Dmt (Dimethyltryptaline, or God’s molecule), which makes his action by activating your most sacred gland, the pineal gland, it also creates neurological effects, performing new ways of mental connection, so that the patient find new ways of thinking, and generates a sense of connection with himself and with the environment that surrounds him.

 Ayahuasca Ceremony in Medellín Colombia


Why is our retreat different from other Ayahuasca retreats?


  • Our Retreat is directed an supported by a native An athorized shaman from Amazon ( Los Pastos community ). Most of retreats in medellin works with Ayahuasqueros so, not real shamans or taitas.
  • Our Maloca is not closed, you can choose to be close to the fire, so inside, or to be sorrounded by nature.
  • For your safety, You will always be supervised by our staff. 
  • Our medicine is stronger than the regular yages, usually our participants feels that have found what they were looking for with only 2 ceremonies.
  • We consider that a patient does not require 4, 5, 8 or 15 days of ceremony for their healing, rather we feel that this has an economic issue in those who perform it. If you want a good experience, you need good medicine and a genuine shaman.
  • We have been in this same place, for more than 25 years ( Most of the retreats in Medellín were created 2 or 3 years ago and they are not genuine ) , and our shaman are highly recognized by the national indigenuos community and we have the official credentials show you.
  • You will also be supervised by a western doctor, to analyze previous pathologies and possible interactions with other medications that patiente takes,to ask about previus illnes that the patient could be suffering, and in most of the ceremonies you will be supervised by him.
  •  All our medicine (Yagé) is prepared here in our retreat, with leaves ( Chacruna ) and trunks ( Ayahuasca ) brought directly from the Amazon (putumayo), by our shaman with his indigenous recipe, This requires 8 days of cooking, ( most of retreats buy the Yage already made, without being clear about its origin, so, not safe)
  • We perform the pickup and drop off service, directly from your home, in our privated shuttle service, for more safety (if it’s your choice, 10 usd extra)

How do we Do the Experience?


  • We are an expert and professional group in this area, with more than 25 years of experience in the healing art of Ayahuasca. Our main objective is  our participants acquire a higher level of consciousness, self-knowledge, wisdom, and spirituality. Our concept of Ayahuasca is: it is a source of healing, counsciusnes, spirituality, and wisdom, it is a sacred medicine that leads you in a mirror of your consciousness, and higher levels of counsciusness,  this is the clue of your healing.
    We have always present our values:  humility, compassion and love.


  • From the first moment you contact us via WhatsApp or email, you will be provided with all the support related to diet and possible interactions that may exist with previous illnesses suffered and medications you use, for this, our participants have direct contact via WhatsApp with our personal occidental doctor, normally these instructions are made 1 or 2 weeks before the experience.


  • We perform the ceremony in the town of Guarne ( forest place ) (38 kilometers, 45 minutes from the city, Medellin ), which makes it an affordable option for patients who do not want to travel to the jungle. The day of experience, our shuttle service will pick you up at your home at 7:30 am (if that is your choice, 10 usd extra), then we will arrive at the ceremony location around 8:15 am (Forrest place retreat, guarne), Then after this you will be received by our shaman, and you will be given an introduction about what is ayahuasca and its spiritual body and consciousness effects. At this time, participants will be able to resolve any questions about the experience with the shaman. As a second option, we can pick up you, and drop off you, in a specific place of medellin ( meeting point ) , if is it your wish.


  • Then  we move on to organize the space where you will live your experience (the resting place). A first cup of medicine is received at 9:15 am . After this a second cup is offered at 11:30 am. This second cup is optional and is only used in case the patient does not has managed to connect or if you feel very superficial, our support staff and the shaman will be supervising the participants throughout the entire time. After this second dose, the effects of the medicine can last from 4 to 8 hours depending on the patient’s sensitivity. (4-5 pm)


  • Then we carry out an integration of the lived experience, so that, the participants can resolve doubts about your experience. Afterwards, you will recive a broth ( optional ) to replace fluids and electrolytes. As soon as the participant feels in adequate conditions, a spiritual closure is carried out, with a plant called guaira, which cleanses your energy, and closes spiritual channels


  • After this we headed to the bonfire to integrate the experience, Around 7:00 p.m. you will recive a light meal before going to sleep, after this you can go to sleep whenever you want.


  • The second day the Ceremony starts more o less 8 pm when you will recive the first cup of medicine,and the rest of the experience will be carried out the same as the first day of the ceremony. This 2-days experience is recommended for people who have deep things to resolve in their lives, or significant previous trauma, or for those who want to go deeper in your experience.


  • After finishing your experience, we return to the original meeting place in Medellin-Colombia, more or less 5 or 6 pm.  You should know that in this place the Yagé (Ayahuasca) is stronger than other retreats, and usually with 2 days of ceremony is enough.
