What is Ayahuasca?

Travel to the Depths of Your Subconscious

Ayahuasca is medicinal plant that exposes the gap between who you think you are and who you actually are. In this subconscious “purge,” the dark, painful secrets feeding your self-doubt and fear are suddenly cleansed and replaced with clarity and relief.

Practiced for centuries by indigenous tribes of Brazil and Peru, Ayahuasca is used to enrich the mind by receiving visionary messages, overcoming fears, and connecting to the divine universe for a deeper understanding and greater perspective. In short, it allows you to reflect within by expelling any fears, insecurities, or self-judgement which society has instilled and accept the unconditional love we all have inside us.

However, because everyone has a different path, story, and perspective, it is difficult to fully explain the effects of Ayahuasca. We recommend going in with a clear intention on what you need to work on along with an open mind, heart, and body.

“Alberto Roman is a wonderful example of what a human can be. I have sat with Alberto in five hoops, and each has been a special, sacred, enriching, and valuable experience. Alberto has such a lovely, relaxed and open way of being so that the ceremonies are peaceful and flowing. Alberto’s musical and artistic talent add another rich texture to the tapestries he weaves. I highly recommend Alberto for anything to do with building community, guiding folks through sacred ceremonies, enriching peoples lives and community through art and ceremonies.” Lee Goldsmith

Ayahuasca Participant

“Alberto is an exceptionally adept facilitator. I first met Alberto when he was assisting other facilitators from Peru. His musical ability as well as his ability to enter into the shared space which forms during the Ayahuasca ceremony and bring about healing impressed me even then. Since then, Alberto has obviously worked very hard to hone his skills and this work has enabled him to become a true Maestro. I have sat with Alberto in approximately 20 ceremonies. He is extremely sensitive, wise, and caring and the psychic space he creates during the ceremony is both safe and challenging.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Ayahuasca/plant medicine safe?
Enerchi Yoga School has brought together a world-class team of spiritual teachers, healers, and a native Costa Rica Shaman to create a legal, transformative space for anyone interested in exploring Ayahuasca. We are honored to bring a program grounded in safety and supported by multidisciplinary professionals to guide you through your transformation. This is no ordinary program, but a once-in-a-lifetime experience, to bring about true healing and change.
How long are the ceremonies?
Ceremonies typically last from 3-7 hours, but each ceremony varies as well as each individual experience. Rest assured, our Shaman and healers will monitor you very closely until the effects wears off and you are able to sleep. It is best to go into each ceremony without any expectations and allow what comes.
What is the ayahuasca "purging" like?
Purges may occur on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. When purging occurs, it is the movement and processing of negative energy out of the body. The most common physical forms being vomiting and defecation as well as shaking, racing thoughts, yawning, crying, laughing, and hot/cold sweats. Purging is the plant medicine’s method for eradicating the body of harmful, toxic, or pent-up energies spawn by addictions (substance and behavioral), physical ailments, or past trauma. Please do not hesitate to ask for help! Our Shaman and healers are always available to assist you with going to the bathroom and any other needs that may arise. Remember that suppressing any type of purging is counterproductive to working with Ayahuasca.
Will I feel fear or anxiety?
Fear and anxiety are normal to experience before, during, and after any Ayahuasca ceremony. Our Shaman and healers are there to help guide you through this experience with love and support. Pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation, yoga, affirmations, and journaling can be used to initiate a sense of calm and inner peace. If this is a concern for you, please communicate with our healers before or upon arrival so we can offer suggestions for working through these challenges.
What are the Dietary Guidelines?
Click here to download our Ayahuasca Dietary Guidelines.
I take medication - is that ok?
Some kinds of medications are compatible. However, others such as SSRI’s like antidepressants, can be problematic. Make sure to inform us of what medication you’re taking before your arrival and we will consult with our Shaman. When in doubt, talk to a medical expert you trust. We are not in the position to advise anyone on medical treatments.
What can I expect after coming home?
People coming back from an Ayahuasca experience will be highly sensitive to food, people, noise, distraction, and general imbalance. Participating in healthy physical and spiritual activity with a supportive community will help integrate the lessons and healings received from Ayahuasca. After the retreat, we encourage you to stay in touch with Enerchi Yoga School and our healers to help absorb your revelations and smooth your transition back into everyday life.
Is This a Substitute for medical care?
Ayahuasca is not a substitute for medical care. Our retreat is a great place to explore holistic healing if you can already openly discuss your personal history. A retreat is not the best place to open those issues for the first time. Deep healing occurs and you need to have the proper time and support directed at you for your care and well-being. Private discussions with our Shaman are best for opening up those traumas for healing.
