How do I get to and from the retreat

Are there any medical guidelines?

– Based on our experience with Ayahuasca, it is recommended, if possible, that participants stop most medications, four (4) weeks in advance of their visit to the retreat. Having said that, we acknowledge this may not be feasible for all participants. It is imperative that you talk to your doctor about any medication you may be taking in order to determine how it reacts with MAO inhibitors. Be sure to keep track of any medication that has a health risk if you discontinue taking it.

– While it is not 100% necessary to discontinue medications prior to your retreat visit, its very important to discuss the use of Ayahuasca this with your primary care physician, as well as being 100% transparent with our staff when filling out the medical portion of your intake questionnaire prior to booking your retreat.

– It is important that you understand that some medications are clearly contraindicated with Ayahuasca use and unlike the consequences of food allergies/interactions, Ayahuasca interaction with prescription and over the counter pharmaceuticals as well as certain herbs can be potentially fatal. In particular, the drugs and medications listed below can be hazardous when mixed Ayahuasca and should be discontinued at least 4 weeks prior to coming to the retreat:

– Other monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI’s). These include drugs like Isocarboxazid (Marplan), Phenelzine (Nardil), Selegiline (Emsam), Tranylcypromine (Parnate).
– Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI’s).
– Any high blood pressure medicine (Antihypertensives).
– Diet pills/appetite suppressants.
– Medicine for bronchitis including antihistamines, cold medication, sinus medication, hay fever/allergy medications.
– Drugs with dextromethorphan: Found in cough suppressants.
– Central nervous system depressants like Xanax or Ativan
– Vasodilators: medications that dilate blood vessels, often use for hypertension
– Antipsychotics: Used to manage symptoms of psychosis, including delusions and hallucinations. Often used to treat those with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and Alzheimer’s disease.
– Barbiturates: Class of drugs that have a depressant effect.
– Cocaine: a stimulant.

How do you calculate dosage of plant medicine and other substances used?

– We start participants off with a small dose on their first ceremony, and afterwards, work with them to navigate their working dose in subsequent ceremonies.
– Second doses are permitted after the first ceremony.
