Ayahuasca experiences and treatment can be very deep and profound. Sometimes, understanding what happened and how to process and integrate it can be a real challenge, especially if you don’t have a lot of experience working with ayahuasca. Often times it is difficult to find someone to talk to about your experience, simply because the topic of ayahuasca is complex and not many people have studied its use and understand its depth. You may have questions about:
- Trying to make sense of the experience
- What happened externally and internally
- How to interpret your perceptions and feelings
- What you can do now to continue the process
- Practices to enhance your understanding
- How to effectively talk about your experiences
- Planning for the future
More than answering questions, a counseling session provides a real connection with someone who has studied the ayahuasca tradition in the Amazon Rainforest as well as shamanic traditions, understands the complexities of the healing process on a deep and insightful level, and has trained as a therapist and counselor for many years.
Carlos is the founder and program director of the Ayahuasca Foundation. He has lived in Iquitos, Peru, since 2004, when he began studying the ayahuasca healing traditions of the Amazon rainforest. After living with his first teacher, don Juan, for four years, he conceived the Ayahuasca Foundation and in 2009 made it a reality. Since then, he has organized over one hundred retreats and courses for over one thousand people from all over the world. As a retreat and course facilitator, he observed and learned a tremendous amount about preparation and methods to optimize the healing experience. He offers his insights to increase the potential benefit for anyone who has completed a retreat or ayahuasca experience.
A sliding scale from $40 to $75 is used for post ayahuasca counseling sessions with Carlos. Each session is one hour long and utilizes current online technology (skype, messenger, or whatsapp). It doesn’t matter where you are located except that you do need a reliable internet connection. Sessions are in english. Payment must be made at least 24 hours prior to each session.
NOTE: For participants of Ayahuasca Foundation programs, one session is free after attending the retreat.
