This was my second Ayahuasca trip to Iquitos and the best one! The focus of my second time was to complete my healing and was looking for a center that was truly focused on healing and wellness. Amaru Spirit was it!! I was refer to it by someone else that had been there recently. I got much more than I hoped for; most amazing experience of my life, not only am I healed, I'm forever awakened.
Slocum (owner) is amazing, very attentive; his guidance through out my 4 weeks at his center was priceless. He brews his own Ayahuasca, very powerful medicine. He is also very knowledgeable about food nutrition, and takes pride in understanding your concerns (physical, emotional or both) and works with you to heal both; pushing you only as far as you can go/ or what you can handle. He also suggests detoxes aimed to help move blocks for you have the best out of your Ayahuasca ceremonies. They worked beautifully for me. I'm finally free of somethings that have plagued my life; truly happy being me, healed!
Rooms: Best place you'll find in a jungle; a room with your own shower and toilet is possible; clean and comfortable.
Staff: Jan the manager tries to do whatever it takes for you to have an amazing experience. The staff are all kind, sweet people and work hard, true gems!!
Food: Slocum's knowledge in this area means you'll get the best food possible, healthy and organic. Typically, nutritious smoothies to start the day; the rest is based on what your situation.
There is so much love, support and kindness at this center; I plan to go back.
