We are able to take you to town in case of an emergency. Please note that it takes a few hours to get back to town and we need to send some one with you if you must return to the states. We don’t not encourage leaving the trip early unless there is an emergency. This is for the benefit of your full healing process and the integrity of the group and there will be no refunds.

Preparing for a trip to another country can be challenging, especially when you’re going to the Amazon Rainforest. The Amazon Rainforest is not as intimidating as you might imagine, at least not the parts where you’ll be going. It is quite rare to see a large wild animal, and if you do it will most likely be a monkey or a lizard. Here are the answers to many questions that people have about traveling and what to expect when they get to Iquitos and the Amazon Rainforest of Peru…

It is not required to get any vaccinations in order to travel, however you may wish to get a yellow fever vaccination as a precaution, and getting vaccinated for Hepatitis A
and Rabies is something to consider as well. I personally have never been vaccinated and most people don’t get them but it’s something you might want to consider.

We do not recommend that you take anti-malarial medication, as it sometimes reacts with the the medicine in an undesirable way. It is incredibly rare to contract malaria in the areas where course participants will be visiting or staying.
You do not need a visa to visit Peru, but you do need your passport, which allows for up to a six month stay in Peru. It is a good idea to make a photo copy of your passport, which you can carry with you in Iquitos.
There are many bank machines in Iquitos, so you do not need to carry a large amount of cash with you, or to purchase traveller’s checks. Bank machines dispense both US and Peruvian currency, and it is easy to exchange both Dollars and Euros for Peruvian Soles.

Only US Dollars and Euros can be exchanged in Iquitos, so if you have any other currency that you want to exchange for Peruvian Soles, you will need to exchange your money in the airport in Lima. That will be your only opportunity to exchange anything other than dollars or euros to soles.
Not many people in Iquitos speak anything other than spanish, so it would be a good idea to pick up a spanish phrase book and at least skim through it before arriving in Peru. Your course instructor is a bilingual translator, but it helps to know a little of the local language.

Drink more than enough water, because dehydration can sneak up on you in the Amazon, where the temperature is usually above 90 degrees Fairenheit (32 C), with high humidity as well. It is common to be dehydrated after travelling a great distance in an airplane as well so it is especially important to drink more than enough water to ensure that you are properly hydrated during your stay in the Rainforest.
There is no electricity at the camp during the day and only a few hours every evening. Plan accordingly.
We have a generator that runs at the camp in the kitchen for 2 hours a day. You may charge your phone, camera or electronics during this time. Please note that there is no or very little phone reception at the camp or internet. We will provide you with an emergency phone number for people to call in case they need to reach you. This number is for emergencies only and we discourage any calls that are not of emergency nature. This is your time to unplug. Please be respectful of this process and not making noise for others around you.

Looking forward to going on this advanture and Journey in Peru,

Ayahuasca is a holistic, shamanic brew that is known for having incredible healing effects. Mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, it is an all around incredible natural plant medicine. Ayahuasca is not addictive, not a drug, has no withdrawal symptoms and leaves no toxicity in the body. Made from the vine ayahuasca and the leaf chacruna, medical research is now showing the effect Ayahuasca has on treating depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, panic disorders and recovering from trauma as well as a general increase in happiness, confidence, independence and ability to react differently to circumstances that may have once caused you pain. It also has been shown to improve creativity and cognitive abilities.

Ayahuasca helps to release patterns and habits that have formed because of painful circumstances in a person’s life. It does this by “purging” certain things out of the body. It is why another name for Ayahuasca is La Purga or “The Purge”.The purge can be physical; vomiting, diarrhea, yawning, crying, sneezing, laughing. It can also be emotional, a feeling that something painful has finally left your mind. All of this can happen when drinking Ayahuasca. In the purge, you can usually feel that something has been released from your body and soul. It is not the same as being sick.

Here at Lakshmi, we believe in holistic healing and Ayahuasca is considered to be the most powerful plant medicine in existence. The indigenous tribes of the Amazon that work with Ayahuasca say that she is a “Master Plant” or, the great teacher plant.

There is also a mystical aspect to Ayahuasca. Many people see visions, have episodes of past life regression, soul retrieval and it is also known for showing people their life’s purpose. The word Ayahuasca is Quecha for Vine of the Soul or Vine of the Spirit. It is said to be a doorway into bridging a connection with higher states of consciousness and providing a connection to a world you may not have realized existed.

If you feel a dissatisfaction in life, Ayahuasca can be an amazing cure for many forms of dis-ease.

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” Leonardo da Vinci.

What our past participants say about the Ayahusca healing experience:

"For my whole life, I have never expected for this magical and supernatural moment that opens my consciousness to an entire new realm of reality, and makes me realize that I am divine full of wisdom and love. I am fortunate to be awakened and realized it within just a spark of the second and my reality have been transformed forever for better." Mina Erosa, professional holistic therapist, Certified Public Accountant,

"For the past 10 days of the experience, nothing short of, but just absolutely life changing, it doesn't even make sense that the amount of transformation that we packed together in a week, has cleared the deepest, the deepest trauma from my body, my mind, and soul, and I am getting super super clear of why I am here, and what I am here to do. This is the deeper than any work that i have done" Mike Hrostoski, life coach, public speaker, and investor

"Meeting the creator, meeting the energy, just viberating with it, knowing it is all inside of us, we all have a soul and we all have a purpose, and our body is just vassle, just to shine that light, your purpose and your gifts that we have. " - Certified Public Accountant, CPA practice owner

"Since we have been here, we have hiked the jungle, swam through the amazon, we forced our paths through the forests, we have petted the wild horses, and every night we've done deep richening ceremonies that slowly strengthen our body, mind, and spirit, and this has been a very beautiful and transformative experience. I am glad and grateful that this has happened and now i am going to bring that back for my loved ones". Dylan Watkins, entrepreneur and business owner

"What i discovered was that my whole life i never knew what Love was, that i was tricked, deceived that the false love was love. I was always confused and fogged my mind that the love i thought it was love hurt me. i realized i was open myself to this false love and i asked for it. When i realized it wasn't love, it was so easy to heal from there. I just want to be flooded my body with real love to heal, physically, mentally, and now my mind is so clear. I am so excited about life and just can't wait to go home to get my nails done and do amazing things.. hahaha..." Madison Simon, student
