Intentionally preparing your body and mind for immersion into a life changing sacred medicine healing experience is fundamental to your process of spiritual transformation. Likewise, integration, that is exercising discipline, respect towards yourself and a ready willingness to let go of old habits that are no longer serving you in the weeks and months following retreat is as essential to your transformation as are the sacred medicines themselves.

The more aware of your intentions and your experiences you become, the more you will be able to connect the two, the more you will be able to create the experiences of your life consciously. This is the development of mastery. It is the creation of authentic power

Gary Zukav, The seat of the soul

Before your immersion into the Amazon in an Ayahausca retreat in Peru the world of sacred plant medicine, you will need to earnestly consider and clarify what your main intention(s) are for wanting to do this work. In the absence of a clear intention it is unlikely that you will realise your healing potential whilst on retreat and be motivated in the days, week, months and years following to adopt new lifestyle habits that enable you to continue to grow, heal and thrive. When setting an intention for this work, you may like to contemplate the following questions:

  • What is it I want to realise for myself whilst on retreat? What would be my ideal outcome?
  • What is my main aim or objective? (Think about this in terms of what you want, not what you don’t want)
  • What is my purpose for wanting to do this work? (Be sure that it is an authentic purpose, not simply wanting to check an experience of your bucket list)
  • How does this purpose look and feel to me? (Try to imagine it in your mind, write it down or draw it out)

When our intentions are clear, when we are sure about what we want, we give the universe full permission to deliver it to us. When we focus on what we don’t want, the universe is likely to deliver us more of the same drudgery that led us to want to transform our day to day reality. Clarity of your objective, of your purpose and intention will enable you to experience profound healing beyond your wildest expectations.
