It is very important to carefully prepare yourself for your ayahuasca ceremonies, physically as well as mentally. A good preparation is essential for a good ayahuasca experience. There is a lot you need to know about how to best prepare yourself and what to expect, which we will outline in detail for you here.
(Re)connect to your inner world
Preparing yourself entails more than following the ayahuasca diet
. It is not only about preparing your body (considering what to consume and what not), but also about preparing your mind and soul for the experience. When we limit our intake stimulants like refined sugars, caffeine or alcohol, as well as our usage of social media and even sexual interaction, we become more sensitive to our inner world.
Ayahuasca is a process
, that starts as soon as you decide to sign up for a retreat. It is a path towards increased awareness. Feelings or emotions that may have been hidden or suppressed by our day-to-day usage of stimulants, might start to come to the surface and show themselves. Reducing our daily distractions enables us to become more aware of our inner world and can therefore help us to set our intentions for the ayahuasca ceremonies.
