After such an experience, the last thing I wanted to do was jump straight back into planet normal. Joe, Mike and myself had all agreed a mini vacation was needed.

The next day when we got back to London, we were to book a flight. So the only question we had to answer was, where? In true putting it out there to the universe style, we were not getting caught up on the details like accommodation, transport, what to do etc. We just wanted warm European weather, clear blue seas and somewhere where none of us had been before. Google presented images of Dubrovnik, Croatia to us. We booked a flight and flew out the next morning and spent the next six days there.

It was an amazing city with amazing people (hope you guys are well!) and was the perfect tonic for me, as we slowed down to take the lessons onboard that mother ayahuasca had presented that night. More

As I lay there with my eye mask on breathing steadily, I could start to hear people around me beginning to vomit. When was it my turn? My stomach had settled and so had my nerves. 20 minutes must have gone by and I still wasn’t sick, and by this point I wasn’t sure if I was going to be sick either. Was this right? Had the ayahuasca not worked?

I continued to focus on my breathing and kept an open heart with my total trust in the vine. The words of the Shaman were still with me and I was starting to relax. The leap of faith had been taken and there was no turning back now. More

Along with the dietary changes that were required leading up to the ayahuasca, there were a few other recommendations too. I chose to start the rest of these requirements 10 days out as well:

  • Slow down. Start to ask yourself what these few days mean to you, where is your heart?
  • Start a daily meditation practice.
  • Resolve any conflict or issues with other people if you have any, as you don’t want to be carrying this in with you.
  • Avoid people, places and information that create negative energy. (Shopping malls, TV & mass media spring to mind!)

Letting go

14 days out I started to prepare myself for what lay ahead. I’m told that the food and mental preparation is as important as the ayahuasca ceremony itself and it’s all part of ‘letting go’.

I decided not to really tell anyone that I was going to do this until after the ceremony had finished. I was having a hard enough time starting to deal with “Shit! Am I really going to do this?” kinda self talk, and I didn’t want other peoples opinion stacked up on top of it (whether they were positive or not).

Have you seen the movie Fight Club? First rule of Fight Club… don’t tell anyone about Fight Club! Ayahuasca was beginning to feel the same. Was it a global underground movement enlightening people as we speak?? For all I knew, it could be going on in my own neighbourhood! Clueless to what I was in for, I sometimes wondered if I should step outside and look for the smoke signals to tell me what to do next!!  More

My Date with Ayahuasca. Part 1

By Guy Lawrence

Sometime early in 2013 Australia…

Joe: Have you heard of Ayahuasca?
Me: Ayawhatsca?
Joe: Ayahuasca… It’s a sacred vine that’s been drank for thousands of years in the Amazon. They call it the sacred vine, it’s a teacher and a medicine.
Me: Umm no… How does it taste?
Joe: Like shit! And you’ll probably vomit too…
Me: Wow, sounds sooo appealing, seriously, who wouldn’t want to do this???

The challenge had been set and I let out a sigh, as two minutes later I realized that it was not a case of if… but when! More
