PLANT MEDICINE RETREAT

TESTIMONIALS

"If there’s any doubt in your mind about this, you should make the choice to come. Doubt is usually the fear of change and of releasing what's comfortable.

You WILL be supported when coming here, you WILL be cared for.

I feel very empowered leaving here, understanding more about where I’ve been, where I come from, my family lineage and losing a sense of control.

Letting nature and the universe take over." - Alex

Hayulima is so welcoming. The land itself already has such an ancestral feeling. Even the family itself, I feel I’ve known them before. They are very strong people.

 

The difference here is that it is more of a family-oriented place. There are kids here, there are other families here. We are all in it together, it’s a very team-oriented feeling, which feels very comfortable for me, especially when you are so vulnerable in ceremonies.

 

My favorite ceremony was the last ceremony we had with ayahuasca. My own individual experience…I went through some trials for sure but knowing that we were all supporting each other throughout, it was so beautiful. The intention is so pure and traditional with praying. Once the sun rose and we ended the ceremony, we all were together. 

 

My experience was beautiful, it was hard. I prayed to the fire, Salvador the shaman was there to support me with the intense time. We just celebrated, it was so beautiful to close out the ceremony, I will always keep that in my heart.

 

Hayulima is a place to reconnect with the ancestral ways of ceremony, between the temazcal and master plant ceremonies, the prayers…it's very respectful of the elements, the world, nature. It allows you to connect with the land. There’s a river down the road and it’s a constant purification; you’re always supported through the land and the people.

Everyone was super supportive….between being accompanying, to translating English, to the delicious food. Even though it’s  “dieta” it was so nutritious, full of flavor, you were never hungry. 

 

There was always an abundance of love. The shamans, Paulina and Salvador, they are super aware of the situation at hand and even through their love you can feel that they are supporting you in the ceremonies. And they’ll push you in a way you need to pushed sometimes. That can be confronting but it’s done with the utmost love, and that’s really what you come here to do is heal and work through certain things. It’s a parent-like feeling, with the utmost, unconditional love, I’m very grateful.

 

If there’s any doubt in your mind about this, you should make the choice to come. Doubt is usually the fear of change and of releasing what's comfortable. You WILL be supported when coming here, you WILL be cared. I feel very empowered leaving here, understanding more about where I’ve been, where I come from, my family lineage and losing a sense of control. Letting nature and the universe take over.
