Your journey of self-development begins at East West Lodge after arriving in the city of Iquitos, the last city in Peru before you depart modern civilization and venture into the Amazon. We’ll leave Iquitos together by speed boat, travelling about two hours down the mighty Amazon River. As you see the city fade away, the jungle thickens and you begin to feel both excited and apprehensive.
It now dawns on you that you are leaving the familiar and entering the unknown – physically, as you move deeper into the wild jungle – and also spiritually, as your consciousness will soon expand to new and never before imagined realms. To become your true and greatest Self, your journey begins now at East West Lodge!
Why Choose East West Lodge?
The East West Lodge shamans personally brew all of the Ayahuasca used in Ceremonies themselves. While brewing the Ayahuasca, the shaman puts his intention into it. During Ceremony, the shaman takes on the responsibility of drinking ayahuasca himself and is present for the entire duration.
Experiences vary widely from person to person, and even the same person can have very different experiences in different Ceremonies. You may experience visions, clairvoyance, revelations, dissolution of emotional blocks, cleansing from negative energy and purging of toxins and parasites.
Our Retreats are centered on the Ayahuasca Ceremony
You will have time for relaxation and introspection in-between Ceremonies. The day after each Ceremony, there will be a group share where you and your fellow guests will each have the chance to share and discuss your Ayahuasca experiences in more depth with each other as well as with the facilitators.
The family of shamans at East West Lodge are experts in the Shamanic arts and Amazon plant medicine. Their repertoire, learned from the Plant Spirits, includes personalized Icaros, invoking the appropriate Plant Spirits, seeing into the astral plane, diagnosing, sucking out pathogenic projectiles from their patients and prescribing plant medicines.
