What happens During an Ayahuasca Ceremony

What happens During an Ayahuasca Ceremony at LaWayra Retreat

Hey there! I’m Sam Believ, founder of LaWayra Retreat. I understand that stepping into the unknown can be a tad daunting, so let me walk you through exactly what happens during one of our Ayahuasca ceremonies. Every step is designed with care, keeping your comfort and safety in mind.

  • 5PM – Settling In: First things first, everyone finds a cozy spot on their mattresses. Take this time to relax and mentally prepare for the journey ahead. We provide you with very comfy floor mattresses.
  • 5:30PM – Breathing and Meditation: We guide you through some breathing exercises that help you relax followed by meditation. It helps in centering oneself before the deeper experience begins.
  • 5:50PM – Shamanic Preparations: Our Shaman prepares the Ayahuasca medicine, using Tobaco and singing icaros, traditional shamanic chants, invoking positive energies and protection.
  • 6PM – The First Cup: Everyone is offered their first cup of Ayahuasca. It’s the beginning of a transformative journey.
  • 7PM – Medicine Music Begins: The ambiance is set with live medicine music that resonates with the energy of Ayahuasca, enhancing the experience.
  • 8PM – The Second Cup: For those ready for a deeper exploration, a second cup is offered.
  • 10PM – The Third Cup: This is typically for seasoned participants or those who feel called to dive even deeper. It is the last cup of the ceremony.
  • 1AM – Closing the Ceremony: As the effects of Ayahuasca start to wane, we officially close the ceremony. Everyone then heads to their rooms for a well-deserved rest.

Taita performing a cleanse

Throughout the ceremony, we enhance the atmosphere with live medicine music, the purifying smoke of copal incense, and the warmth of a ceremonial fire. Our Taita may also perform individual cleanses for those who need it.
