What kind of experiences do your guests have in your Center?

This was my first experience with drinking Ayahuasca. From the moment I arrived in Iquitos the staff at Refugio Altiplano made me feel very welcome and attended to all of my needs. Specially since I do not speak Spanish they provided two very nice ladies who were helping with the translation barrier. I attended four Ayahuasca ceremonies. The brew seemed to be very good. The plant medicine helped me achieve some of my goals in searching for a spiritual awakening. Was it 100 % life changing? No. But has it changed my life? Yes and for the better. The shaman were very nice. The icaros Jose sang was amazing and beautiful. You can tell that when he sings that it comes from his heart. My back had been causing some issues with pain. Jose prepared me a tea which seemed to help my back feel better. The other shaman Rosendo sang icaros that would put me into a trance of some sort. He could vibrate the room with his songs. My experiences with the Ayahuasca were sometimes dark nearly frightening and other made my heart filled with love and joy. The food was plentiful and I will miss getting my fruit bowl every morning that the staff would bring directly to my room which was a three level tree house. If you want a jungle experience this is a real deal. Although I did not know Scott Peterson personally you can tell how much he is missed by some of the current staff. I think having someone of his charisma will be some hard shoes to fill. My experience with Refugio Altiplano was pleasurable and I hope to have this experience again some time in the future.
