  • Review for Ayahuasca Retreats and Spirit Healing Center

    Germaine   March 28, 2015

      Excellent Authentic Ayahuasca Healing Center

    The Ayahuasca Spirit Healing Center in Urubamba, Cusco, is a traditional Ayahuasca center guided by the Shaman Ayar himself. If you look for an authentic Ayahuasca center in Peru this is the right place. The most important is the professional work with the Ayahuasca that the center offers. The Shaman is a traditional healer from the peruvian Amazon. Every ceremony is guided by the Shaman Ayar in an amazing way. He works with small groups and the work is very personalized. You even have the chance to speak with him personally and to get advices from him. This is the place for a deep healing work. The retreat setting was very nice, relaxing and varied. We also did excursions to the beautiful places in the Sacrad Valley of the Inkas. The place was very comfortable with good food and tranquility. I highly recommend this center if you want to take Ayahuasca in the traditional way. They practice real Shamanism, not a mix up of everything.

  • Review for 5 Day Jungle Yoga Vacation in Peru

      Incredible Experience.- Reiki initiation is a must!!

    Wow, what an amazing time spent in a beautiful oasis under the care of beautiful people. I am so grateful to have found TamboIlusion. I left this special place a changed person. I came for the level 1 Reiki initiation, which was above and beyond what I imagined it to be. Johanne's knowledge and passion for this healing energy is contagious. I trulyappreciate her sharing such a wonderful healing art and am so excited tocontinue practicing (mostly on myself but also on others, on animals, plants…) to strengthen the Reiki connection to become more familiar with the energy’s nuances. The process of the Reiki initiation ceremony was quite magical. I felt a profound connection with Johanne and the energy she was attuning me to during the 4 separate attunements. It is a powerful yet wonderfully gentle and nurturing energy. And what a wonderful environment to receive such a gift. I am beyond grateful and so happy I did this for myself. As I discovered with Johanne, you are giving yourself alifelong gift of healing through this initiationceremony and 'when you heal yourself and assist others with their self-healing you heal the Earth. You do make a difference.' I would definitely recommend this program to anyone interested in learning this spiritual practice of healing which consists in awakening the power of your healing hands. Becoming a Reiki practitioner is fun and it is easy to learn. Plus, it was such a delight to spend time in the kitchen with Johanne and tolearn endless bits of knowledge on healthy cooking, kitchen tips and amazing natural remedies. Johanne and Armando have put a lot of love into their land and project and itshows. The tranquil and beautiful lagoon, the forest, the cozy tambos (cabins) and the super comfortable beds, the amazing vegetarian cuisine, the lovely space where the Reiki training took place, etc. The cleansing “baños de plantas” at the end of the initiation were a definite treat. …And I can't forget the yoga! Perfect. Johanne's presence and voice are so calming and inviting. I experienced beautiful moments in the yogaspace (called the“maloca”) which is a gorgeous rounded structure, very spacious and the spectacular view of the jungle is wonderful for centering. It was fantastic to look out onto the lush surroundings while holding a restorative pose; a perfect complement to the Reiki training. The practice of Reiki and yoga do go hand in hand. I felt so grounded and relaxed! Thank you johanne and Armando for sharing your home, providing the perfect setting for this amazing journey and for the vibrant and healing energy of Tambo Ilusion.This rewarding experience has significantly empowered me to influence my own life in a most positive direction. Gracias!

  • Review for Naomi Athena

    Carolyn Ranger   March 26, 2015

      precious gem

    I first met Naomi over a year ago when I was feeling unwell. A common friend had referred me for a massage. I did not know I was in for such a treat. It turned out to be much more than I had expected. From the very beginning, she demonstrated compassion and listening skills which immediately put me at ease. She proceed with a thorough treatment during which she sang. I was shocked, her voice and songs were so soothing. She was careful and considerate and even played in my hair, I felt nurtured, in good hands. I am so grateful for meeting Naomi. Of course, I wanted to see her again. Luckily, I did and I discovered a very generous and knowledgeable woman. Since I was going to South America to pursue my search for alternative therapies, she referred me to a shaman from whom she had been learning for some time. He spoke very highly of Naomi. Thanks to her support, I had an unforgettable experience in Peru. Upon returning home, I was eager to connect again. She hosted a changing woman ceremony to which I participated. Prior to the event, she maintained harmonious correspondence with the participants. The day was well planned and filled with activities tailored to the group and appropriate to its intention. I felt very comfortable and safe in the space she had created although I did not know anyone else. By the end of the day, this inspiring group of women came together to form a tender sister hood. Her devotion to healing arts proved to be outstanding although she is humble about her extensive learning journey. On another occasion, I attended an Ecstatic dance event that she was hosting. Her positive energy and enthusiasm were contagious. Again, she was able to create a safe space in which I was able to let go and feel relaxed. Her contributions to the community are greatly appreciated and very inspiring. Naomi is an incredible facilitator and truly dedicated to helping others. I can't wait for the privilege to share space with her again. I know in my heart and deep in my soul, that she has played an important role in my recuperation and healing. I am forever grateful.

    I once asked Cameron, "if you could describe the experience of retreat in one word, what would it be?" His answer has always stuck with me: "Kindness". He explained how going into retreat is one of the kindest things one can do for oneself. I agree. I would also use this same word to describe Cameron. He is very kind and generous and has a way of delivering the teachings that has me totally engaged and absorbing every word. I really appreciate his light hearted approach which is always accompanied with his great sense of humour. All this creates a very open atmosphere to explore this whole being human trip. Thanks Cameron!
