My Ayahuasca Retreat Experience

I was feeling lost and overwhelmed by the demands of modern life, so I decided to embark on an Ayahuasca retreat at Friends of the Vine in Portugal’s Algarve region. From the moment I arrived, I felt a sense of calm wash over me, surrounded by the serene beauty of the countryside and the warm embrace of fellow seekers.

As the first ceremony approached, I couldn’t help but feel a mix of excitement and nervousness. Sitting in the ceremonial space, I sipped the bitter Ayahuasca and surrendered to its effects. Visions and sensations flooded my consciousness, leading me on a journey deep into my own psyche.

In the days that followed, I shared my experiences with others in integration circles, finding solace and support in their understanding eyes. Each ceremony peeled back another layer of my being, revealing hidden truths and long-forgotten emotions.

As the retreat drew to a close, I emerged with a newfound sense of clarity and purpose. The journey had been challenging, but it had also been profoundly rewarding. With the wisdom of Ayahuasca in my heart, I returned to the world, ready to face life’s challenges with courage and grace.
