      Ayahuasca Retreat in Peru 2016

    Our family attended Meriana's Peru Retreat in June, 2016, and it was life changing. We attended without having too many expectations, and were first time Ayahuasca participants. The accommodations at the Amazonia Retreat Center were nice, private bungalows were provided and there was a pool to swim in during the day, a refreshing escape from the heat of the jungle. We were on a special dieta for the experience, so the food was pretty bland, but surprisingly refreshing to the body and spirit. The workshops were very helpful to mentally prepare for the journeys. Meriana covered many aspects of healing the psyche from traditional therapy methods to more integrated ayahuasca-specific techniques for navigating and maximizing the altered consciousness state. She is fun and personable, and and very experienced in her field. Yoga happened every evening. We didn't go for the social experience, but after the ten day experience, we felt like we'd formed family with the rest of the group. It is amazing to go through such intense and healing experiences with people whom you've just met. I would personally prefer approaching the experience with a smaller group in the future, but am very grateful to have experienced it with this group as well. The ceremonies were lead by very experienced shamans. I have since learned that people in the states drink without a shaman, and I cannot imagine this as being a good idea. The shamans held the container, worked their magic to heal us both on a group level and on individual levels. Their presence was so powerful. There were also several helpers who assisted people and made sure that everyone was safe and cared for. It was really nice that even though we had three different shaman teams, we had the same helpers throughout providing comfort and consistency that helped us feel safe. I would have preferred to stop after our fourth ceremony. We moved to a different retreat center which was dormitory style, much less comfortable and also next to a chicken farm which left a very strong oder in the air. It was much less comfortable, not the peak of the experience. I also did not like the last shaman's approach as much as the others. Other people within the group seemed to enjoy this part of the journey, though, so to each his own. We all very much enjoyed the experience and have received so much wisdom, healing and guidance from it. It was powerful, intense, difficult at times, but amazing. Between us, it is difficult to put words to this experience. We continue to learn and grow from the things we experienced in Peru, and have formed friendships that hopefully will last a lifetime. Many thanks to Meriana, the shamans, the people who cared and cooked and cleaned for us. We are so very grateful for everything.

      A beautiful experience

    I attended one of the plant medicine retreats organized by Meriana, and it was an incredible and transformative experience. The retreat consisted of 5 ayahuasca ceremonies with 4 different shamans, which I found to be a great introduction into the ways different healers work. There were also workshops on how to set intentions, manage altered states, and process the experiences. These provided useful tools for getting the most out of each Ayahuasca trip. One of the exercises we did (which felt a little silly at the time)was a role playing inner child interview done with a partner, that little game ended up creating a huge shift in how I can best structure boundaries in my work-life and relationships. We had a very diverse group of about 30 people and everyone was able to come together with compassion, healing, and respect; I think that this has to do with the type of energy Meriana puts into the world and her work. I feel like I now how a group of unlikely friends and allies scattered around the world.
