The ayahuasca diet is strict. There is no salt, oil or sugar. No meat. No caffeine, alcohol or sex. We are urged to spend little time in the sun as it has an effect like wilting🥀 our master plant. I can feel it in my body on hot, sunny days. We are also encouraged to avoid touching each other as this work makes us very open to picking up other energies. 🌿🌱🍃🌿🌱🍃🌿🌱🍃 Each day they serve seven or eight things - white and brown rice, quinoa, green or brown lentils, sometimes pinto beans, potatoes, plantains and a boney river fish called Bocachino. There is oatmeal at breakfast and some days we are lucky and there is plain pasta at lunch. There are always apples and bananas and some subtle tasting herbal teas to choose from too. I long for savory sauces and vegetables. 🥔🥔🥔🥔🥔🥔🥔🥔 On ceremony days we eat breakfast and lunch but no dinner. I am grateful for that schedule as I quickly learned anything consumed after a certain time will just end up in the bucket when you purge. 🌿🌱🍃🌿🌱🍃🌿🌱🍃 Ceremony days are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We will participate in our 5th ceremony tonight and I feel some fear in anticipation of the work ahead. I am told that never really goes away. 🥔🥔🥔🥔🥔🥔🥔🥔 This is the most powerful and humbling experience of my life to date. The healing taking place in my body is undeniable. Excruciating but undeniable.
