IOWASKA in Peru

2 years, 3 months ago

In January I will be going to Peru for a month to volunteer at an orphanage. I’m considering whether or not I want to try the iowaska tea while I’m there.. Any of you done this that could give me some advice? Or anybody been to Peru and have some tips on what to do or see while I’m there? Thank you. :)

I have neither visited the area NOR done the aforementioned, but I cannot help but to state you should, WITHOUT QUESTION, consider the Ayahuasca teas provided to you there.

@desertninja, check out Erowid on it, or search for ayahuasca posts on here, as well as the blog entry by Martijn.

I’ve never done that particular drug, but I’ve done other psychedelics and I’d say it’s extremely important to only be around people you trust.

Amazing plant spirit/medicine. Can not recommend highly enough. Just try to find a good shaman, that is very important.

@martijn, something I’ve always wondered about it, is can you take it without the shaman, and still have a good trip? From my own psychedelic experiences, strangers and tripping don’t mix. Honestly I prefer to trip alone, or with like 1-2 other people at the very most.

@theskafish, I never done it without a shaman, so I do not know. I know some people do it solitary and have good results, I know others that swear on group sessions with a guide in some form. The latter of which I can attest to. That said, I do not think extrapolating ideas from past and different psychedelics than ayahuasca carries over very well to the actual use of it. Its something different completely, the only similarity is a difference with that what we normally call the ordinary.

Definitely! Im planning on going to Peru in the new year sometime myself and its definitely on my list of things to do. From what I’ve read though, Ayahuasca is pretty hardcore. I would recommend testing the waters with a shaman or a sitter before trying anything yourself. It will bring up all your demons in the most beautiful way. I wouldn’t underestimate it’s power

@martijn, How did you go about finding a shaman?

Just asking around locally I assume, or you could probably get recommended somewhere good by a doctor, maybe even a travel agent. Not sure about that last one but I’m sure they get asked about it a lot. It’s a start anyway.

Oh you should definitely check it out while you’re there. Iowaska is a beautiful medicine that can heal your soul in so many ways. There are a lot of great centers around the Iquitos area. One that I recommend, that’s pretty close to Iquitos is called Amor y Luz. They have several awesome shamans, some powerful medicine, and the owners are cool.

@desertninja, i grew up in lima, peru! my favorite place in the country is Cusco, one of the most primitive cities in one of the most primitive countries in South America. it is endlessly fascinating to me, not only because it was once the historic capital of the Incan Empire, but because of how many of these traditions still color the natives’ lifestyles.

It would probably be very easy for you to find Ayahuasca in regions along the Amazon, such as Iquitos (a very nice place to swim in the river, fish for pirahnas, and even dance with tribal Natives c:) I think if you are interested in plants in general, you should definitely go to Iquitos, the indigenous people in the forests are typically willing to talk to tourists (and if you have a guide, there will be translation) and you may be able to learn a lot this way.

where will you be staying in peru? its a big country, so depending on where youre located you can travel to other places by bus (crazy long drives, but doable! never ride a combi, though) taxi (super super cheap in peru) or by train, in some parts.

if you are near the coast you have got to dive into the sea c:

I also tried the tea and it totally chagned my outlook on life and reality. I didnt have the resource to go to peru, so me and my friends just got the iowaska tea online at http://www.soul-herbs.com/iowaska/. this is a very strong medicine, so only take it if you are mentally ready.
