Ayahuasca Ceremonies

With the increased popularity of ayahuasca, more and more organizations now offer ayahuasca ceremonies and retreats in South America.

With setting being such an important aspect of the experience, we have made a selection of a number of organizations with a good reputation and knowledgeable staff, amongst other important factors such as respect for cultural heritage and shamanic traditions.

Blue Morpho Tours - Blue Morpho Ayahuasca center is the largest Ayahuasca shamanism and Universal shamanism center in the Amazon jungle. Blue Morpho offers shamanic workshops and spiritual retreats with traditional shamans.

The Ayahuasca Foundation - The Ayahuasca Foundation is a Peruvian non-profit organization. Several types of retreats and seminars are available, with a duration ranging from one day to three weeks.

Ayahuasca-Wasi - Ayahuasca-Wasi workshops are held in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, 40 minutes from Cusco city, Peru. The location is absolutely wonderful and the staff are extremely helpful.

If you intend to attend a ceremony, please inform yourself well in advance. Our site offers plentiful information, but if you are completely new to ayahuasca, we recommend you start by reading the introduction.

Keep in mind that a trip to the Amazon can be a quite expensive endeavor, and that is is more cost-effective to home-brew a batch with ingredients ordered from a trusted ethnobotanical supplier.

No, but came across it searching for place in Peru. Blue Morpho seems quite expensive, have you bee there? I saw there write up in Nat'l Geo but I've also encountered good write ups on, as you recommend, on Ayahuascca-Wasi. Flip a coin, Andes or Amazon, Andes or Amazon. What do you think?

I've participated in ayahuasca ceremonies on three different occasions. I didn't have to travel to a foreign country to do it. Ayahuasca is also called the God Molecule.

The first time I tried it, I was with a group of women and the facilitator brought in a medicine man who muscle tested each of us to make sure that we wouldn't have adverse effects. We sat in a circle with the person who was partaking of the ayahuasca (which was inhaled) in the center of the group, safely enveloped by her peers. 

The experience is extremely personal and I can only say that it was like going down the rabbit hole into an entirely different reality. I had an incredibly mind-bending, expanding experience that opened up my perceptual lens and made me what I can only describe as "shimmeringly alive." but I think this was because I was able to get past my fears. It was definitely a wild ride.

Since I was part of a group, I got to witness the individual experience of others and for the most part, theirs was not so positive. Some cried and screamed, most threw up and others were truly terrified the whole time which is why it is so important that a skillful medicine man leads the group and that you feel a sense of safety regarding the company you're with.
