Heart of the Jungle: 7-Day Bluestone Ayahuasca Retreat in Cancun, Mexico: January 24th – 31th 2019 –

About us

If you have a sincere desire to change and the courage to look within, this retreat is for you.

We are a family, a tribe of the soul, and we hail from all over the Americas. We believe that change in the world begins with change in us and that Ayahuasca is one of the most powerful tools for evoking that change. Ayahuasca drops the barriers between your conscious self and your subconscious giving you a unique glimpse at what you really feel and why, allowing you to broaden your perception and heal the distortions holding you back.

The Ayahuasca given in our retreats is prepared by the Shipibo in the Peruvian Amazon, the culture that has been working with Ayahuasca for over three millennia; it is then hand-carried to Mexico. Those who give the medicine, the ayahuasqueros, have the compassion and wisdom that come from years of working with Ayahuasca. They trained with the Shipibo and continue to do so. They are savvy, committed and prepared. The rest of us all take Ayahuasca for personal work and know what it means to go through a process.

All of us at the retreat take the medicine. We embark on this journey and return from it, together. We are there for you as you need us. We are good companions for this experience, so whether you come as a novice or an advanced taker of medicina, you’re in good hands.

Terran, USA 2018: My calling to plant medicine began out of a desperate need to overcome a drug dependence that threatened to extinguish my flame. In January of 2018 my journey began with a visit to an Ibogaine clinic outside of Cancun [that removed the addiction on a physical level]..I then realized almost immediately that my recovery was just in its infancy and that I needed to deal with the traumas that lead me down such a dark destructive path in the first place. A quick search led me to Sharon and Bluestone Ayahuasca and she had all the right answers and I felt a level of trust and ease that was unexpected. There is no way I can transfer into words the experience but I can say that I am a completely different person for the better in every way.... The reverence and respect given to the ceremony and the medicine by the staff makes the experience so profound and real I can’t imagine there is any way to improve on anything and I say that in a non patronizing way. The staff led by example…. Ayahuascs dissolved age, gender, race, religion and simplified each person as a human being with the utmost potential to change the world thru individual transformation. I can’t say enough about the selflessness of the staff and my respect for the incomprehensible energy they put into healing and transforming our group. There were times when people were literally exercising demons and the staff was able to work them thru everything which I found so powerful… It has been approx. 2 months since the retreat and I have lost 20 lbs and have found the strength and discipline to change my habits completely and focus on the positives in my life and not allow my emotions to manifest into a depressive loop. If you are called to experience mother Ayahuasca please listen to that call and I can guarantee you will be treated to a life changing experience with the team at Bluestone. I will forever be indebted to Arturo and Sharon and they are doing divine work and I now have a hopefulness that I never knew existed. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. WITH TOTAL GRATITUDE

Menu/Cuisine

The optimum diet for working with Ayahuasca is vegan which we modify slightly with the occasional fish or egg dish. Our meals are homemade, right down to and including the tortillas. We work with regional fruit, vegetables and herbs in novel and traditional combinations. You’ll enjoy vegan tacos, gazpachos, vegetable soups, seawood wraps and more. Some light fasting on ceremony days is required.

*If you have special dietary needs, advise us and we’ll work with you.


Accommodations

The bungalows have two double beds each, a fan over each bed and a bathroom with a shower. The mother house has two bedrooms: one with a king-size bed, the other with two double beds, both share a bathroom. Bathrooms are also located in the mother house and around the pool next to the maloca (the ceremonial structure used for the ceremonies).
