Interpretation of Ayahuasca Visions

After a delicious and nutritious breakfast, we will have a meeting with our shaman to talk and interpret the visions and teachings left by Ayahuasca.

The visions perceived during an Ayahuasca session usually act as metaphors or allegories, similar to how dreams capture remote places of the unconscious in images.

How Many Days Do You Need in Order to Hike In Peru

The Classic Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu is one of the most popular combined routes. Each route varies in length from one to fourteen days, depending on the demand and availability of lodging along the way. All four journeys are one-way trips. You will generally travel back to Cusco using a combination of public and private transportation, depending on which tour company you use to make your trip reservations.

The One-Day Inca Trail Hike (1-day trek)

You can see Machu Picchu in one day if you’re short on time (but be prepared to wake up early!). You’ll take the train from Cusco to Kilometer 104, which is a location on the trail. Then, you’ll hike around 15 kilometers (9 miles) through the Sun Gate until you reach the Machu Picchu sanctuary. This option is great if you want to view Machu Picchu and experience a small section of the Inca Trail trek all at once.

The Lares Trek (3-day trek)

The Lares Trek, also known as the cultural alternative to the Inca Trail, is a three-day journey into the historical weaver communities on the eastern slopes of Machu Picchu. But don’t expect it to be a trip to the museum.

To glimpse into time-honored villages, you must earn access by obtaining passes that soar to over 15,000 feet and zigzag across Pumahuanca’s peak. On day four of your Lares trek, you may add another stop at Machu Picchu ruins.

Vilcabamba Traverse Route (1 – 2 week trek)

The trek to Machu Picchu is not for the faint of heart. At 65 kilometers long, this is regarded as one of the most difficult ways to see Machu Picchu. The route starts in Cachora and winds a mile-deep canyon to Choquequirao, or “Cradle of Gold.” The Vilcabamba Trail follows the same route that Hiram Bingham took when he rediscovered Machu Picchu in 1911, albeit via more isolated towns.

The Salkantay Route (1 – 2 week trek)

The Salkantay Trek is the only Inca Trail option that lets you sleep in a comfy bed and take a hot shower at the end of every day’s hike! Though it still requires reasonably fit participants, The Lodge Trek runs along the Salkantay Trail through the Cordillera Vilcabamba mountain range but permits nightly rest at fully serviced lodges placed along the route. Machu Picchu is reached by following the trail to an elevation of 15,000 feet.

The Classic Inca Trail Route (3 – 5 day trek)

The Classic Inca Trail Hike is the most popular trek of the four alternatives described in this piece. It begins at kilometer 82 along the route, at the village of Piscacucho. The first day is a moderate hike through the Andean foothills, crossing the Urubamba River and arriving at your campsite in Huayllabamba. On the second day, you’ll ascend what’s known as “Dead Woman’s Pass,” which is the highest point of the Inca Trail Elevation at 4200 meters (13,776 feet). After that, it’s all downhill to the Pacaymayo River campsite.


This Authentic Ayahuasca Retreat in Cusco is perfect for those who want a connection with Nature and at the same time like to explore new things. Travelers should be in good shape since you’ll be walking for Short periods of time, Hiking unstable ground, and going upstairs without any handrails.


It is suggested to have walking preparation at least 2 months in advance with activities that help strengthen the muscles of the legs with a good technique to hold your breath as this tour generally covers heights over 14,000 feet above the mountains in very rough terrain and very low temperatures as well as very high temperatures.


During your Pre-departure for this ayahuasca retreat, you will explore various areas including the Cusco City tour (Recommended )

This trip preparation is for acclimatization purposes; there are several day tour options such as Sacred Valley, Maras Moray, Walk with llamas, and alpacas Tour. The walks will be moderately difficult with options for more strenuous hikes. You’ll also get to see numerous archaeological sites along the way.


Cusco is located at a high altitude of 11,200 feet. The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu are lower, at 9,200 and 8,000 feet respectively.

Trip Overview of our Ayahuasca Ceremony in Cusco Peru

  • Tour localization: Our Ayahuasca healing retreat is located in Viacha, a hamlet in the sacred valley of Cusco, located very close to the Inca citadel of Pisac.
  • Tour type: 3 days and 2-night Ayahuasca ceremony in the Peruvian Andes, very close to Machu Picchu.
  • Good for: Everybody, done in small groups from 4 to 10 or privately
  • Difficulty: Not trekking, but a lot of walking around the retreat.
  • Season: All year around.

Ayahuasca Pre-Diet

Our bodies are full of toxic and inorganic substances that will not allow us to receive mother Ayahuasca properly. The vast majority of the foods that we currently consume contain large amounts of preservatives, so a proper diet for at least a week before the Wachuma and Ayahuasca retreat is recommended to better channel the teachings of this powerful ancestral medicine.

Ayahuasca expert Alan Shoemaker expanded on this idea; in his book: «Ayahuasca Medicine, the Shamanic World of Amazonian Sacred Plant Healing». Plant diets are designed to help a person connect with plant spirits and develop new healing abilities, vision, and knowledge; they require a lot of time, in solitude, and a strict dietary regimen. When you follow a strict required diet, you become more accessible to the spirit world.”

Tranquilize or cleanse the body to achieve a spiritual state; It will be a familiar idea to anyone who has practiced yoga. Yoga asanas such as physical positions such as downward facing dog or child’s pose; These poses were originally designed for the purpose of preparing your body for meditation. Like the effect of the asanas on meditation, the physical preparation of the Ayahuasca pre-diet; goes hand in hand with being able to psychologically prepare for the healing experience.

Cleansing yourself of toxins gives you a great boost in the Ayahuasca journey; because, as Vincent Ravalee explains in the book entitled: «The Psychotropic Mind». All the toxins that we accumulate during our daily life, are the first things that Ayahuasca will attack.

When you cleanse those toxins in advance, it is easier for Wachuma and mother Ayahuasca to work in your body; because there are fewer “barriers” to cross. By following the diet, you ensure your ability to get the most out of your trip; and reach deeper levels of spiritual psychic understanding.

Each shaman, Ayahuasquero, or Ayahuasca retreat varies in specific restrictions. In the Huacaria community, we have a series of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual diets that you must follow rigorously to have a deep and healing experience with Ayahuasca.

Our Matsigenka Restrictions are:

Proper body preparation reduces the risks of experimenting, difficulties, and intense purging during the ceremony with the mother Ayahuasca. In addition, to following a proper diet, you show your commitment and intentions to heal yourself and know your own divinity.

Foods Containing Tyramine.

Ayahuasca, specifically; the Banisteriopsis Caapi, which is a vine plant, and one of the principal ingredients in the Ayahuasca brew. Is an MAO-inhibitor, meaning it temporarily inhibits the activation of the monoamine oxidase (MAO) an enzyme that is essential to process the amino acid tyramine.

if you ingest an MAO inhibitor, such as Ayahuasca, and eat foods high in tyramine; it can quickly reach dangerous levels. This can cause a severe increase in blood pressure and require emergency treatment.

You should avoid products that contain tyramine; 2 weeks before the Ayahuasca retreat and 1 week, after taking it.

  • Pork.
  • Red meat.
  • Aged cheeses.
  • Pickles.
  • Wine.
  • Sausages.
  • Fermented foods like soy sauce, fermented tofu, and sauerkraut.
  • Yogurt.
  • Alcohol.
  • Nutritional supplements, like protein powders.
  • Aspartame.
  • Chocolate.
  • Peanuts.
  • Walnuts.
  • Chicken liver.
  • Soy.
  • Bananas.
  • Avocado.
  • Caviar.
  • Herring.
  • Spinach.
  • Gig.
  • Coconut.

The best way to prepare our temple, that is, our body, is to eat a diet rich in organic foods. Foods that contain preservatives are not recommended at all for a proper and healthy diet before an Ayahuasca ceremony. It is recommended to follow a diet based on fruits, vegetables, and seeds.

Other foods you should avoid:

In addition to foods high in tyramine, you should avoid condiments, very acidic foods, salt, and sugar in excess; these contain toxins that are difficult to eliminate from our body, and also that obstruct the purgative and healing energy of plant medicine.

Avoid all Types of Animal Products

Currently, many animals used as a source of food, are full of chemicals; from vaccines, and antibiotics to hormones, and are raised and slaughtered inhumanely.

Unless you are consuming organically raised animals or wild animals from the jungle. It is best to avoid any industrialized animal products.

It is mandatory not to consume industrialized products or animals; because you consume not only the substance of those foods but also the energy of them. So, if you consume an animal, which was full of inorganics and chemicals and spent its entire life miserably crammed into a pen or barn; only to finally be slaughtered, en masse, in a mechanized way, you also ingest the negative energy and traumatic experience of that animal.

Prescription Drugs

3 weeks leading up to the Ayahuasca ceremony; we strongly suggest that you stop the following prescription drugs:

  • Antidepressants like SSRIs.
  • MAO-inhibitors.
  • Sleep medications.
  • Barbiturates.
  • Alpha- and beta-blockers.

Street Drugs

These includes:

  • Cocaine.
  • Alcohol.
  • Cigarette.
  • Amphetamines.
  • Heroin.
  • Cannabis.
  • MDMA.
  • Ecstasy.
  • LSD.

Sex and Masturbation

Avoiding a sexual and energetic exchange 2 weeks before and after your Wachuma and Ayahuasca retreat in Cusco is essential for a better experience.

Sex, masturbation, or even any exchange of bodily fluids, energetic and spiritual, can deplete the energy support available to you and thus inhibit the effectiveness of the sacred plants to teach and guide you.

Mental Preparation

The mental, emotional and spiritual diet is as important as the physical diet for a successful ceremony with the mother Ayahuasca. In our Huacaria village, the mental preset would include staying in relative solitude and minimizing useless chatter and gossip. In industrialized countries; a modern diet would definitely include: a fast from videos, TV, radio, movies, news, and social media.

You should spend as many days as possible, before your Ayahuasca ceremony, doing activities such as meditation, mindfulness practice, and yoga to mention a few. Contemplation walks through forests, mountains, riverbanks, and ocean shores. Also, take a walk at sunrise and sunset to receive solar energy, walk at night, it is much better if it is a full moon, so you fully receive the energy of the stars and planets. Start connecting directly with nature, even before your appointment with Ayahuasca.

It is very risky and can bring you a bad experience; if you don’t do your diet responsibly and strictly.
