Ayahuasca is an important traditional spiritual practice held in a harmonic environment for profound self-exploration and personal integration. In many parts of Peru it is used to heal the body, purify the mind and cultivate awareness. This legendary ritual is the most celebrated in the Amazon region. It is also used by Shaman or healers to communicate with the spirit. For the indigenous people, it is a sacred medicine that can cure all illnesses so that Shamans refer to it as the ‘cure-it-all’.
Experiences and effects of this medicine are individual, depending on the person’s physical condition, health and dietary preparation. Sometimes, it causes vomits, visions or muscular relaxation.
The Incas used this method as part of their traditions which are alive nowadays in different and remote areas of the Amazon and The Andes. In Cusco city, you can find several retreats where you can live this out-of-the world experience.
The word Ayahuasca comes from the Quechua language and it means ‘Soul plant’ ‘death plant’ or ‘vision plant’.
