Anything more than that and I’m rolling around too much; anything less and I become sore from the hard floor.
I divide my time during ceremony either lying back propped up on pillows or sitting up fairly straight, in a meditation pose.
Trust me, when you’re under the medicine it helps to not have to feel around in the dark for things.
Most venues will supply a bucket and some tissues in case you throw up; if you have to bring your own, a large empty yoghurt container with lid is a great idea.
Sometimes I’ve seen the smoke delivered like a smudge, waved over a person with a large feather.
In Peru, participants were allowed to smoke mapachos during ceremony, which on one level I didn’t mind except for the light in my eyes when they lit up, which was almost blinding (your eyes become highly light sensitive on the medicine) and some people seemed to light up out of a sense of boredom and restlessness, which annoyed me (since I was breathing their smoke).
(Now you see why not a lot of young people in South America are apprentice shamans…) Anyway, I practiced abstinence and had powerful visions my first time. I imagine one of the most neglected areas of preparation among people traveling from busy industrial society to ayahuasca retreat centres is the simple act of paying attention, by which I mean noticing () your mood, what’s around you, nature, and so on. You don’t have to think of it in those terms, if you don’t care to.
I’ve seen people wearing everything from full-on Shipibo costumes to jeans and Metallica T-shirts. At a minimum I’d lean toward wearing white, light, breathable loose cotton shirt and pants.I also bring a water bottle and a thermos bottle in that contains Amazon bark tea that I buy from Note that I only sip the water as needed, and the tea is more for the latest part of the ceremony when the medicine is dissipating. I also bring a small flashlight with a fresh battery the end of which I cover with transparent red tape (so I don’t blind my fellow seekers in the dark).As the shamans often say, if you bring no intention to the ceremony, you may see a pretty light show and colors and not much else.In truth, the first time I drank I felt it was worth the price of flying to Peru just for what I saw in the first 15 minutes.
But I get far more out of the experience when I set an intention.
