Comments

Lovely memory/message I found today inside my book from my Arkana family! Gracias corazón/Fernanda 10/2019 #arkanaspiritualcenter #ayahuasca
I've been trying to contact someone from this place through FB, messenger, email and by phone with no response for months now...even my post on her has been deleted. I've been trying to get a refund for 2 months. What's up with this place?
My trip is coming up in less than 2 weeks and I have not receive my welcoming/instruction email. I've been trying to contact you guys for weeks now. Phonecalls, voicemails, emails, FB messenger. Does anyone know what's going on with this place or have some way to contact someone that I can talk to?
So how's the COVID pandemic in Peru? Have cases peaked or declining? Still in strict lockdown or easing?
Thinking of the wisdom from Pachamama and Mama Ayahuasca on this Earth Day🌎. Eternally grateful for Arkana for holding such a beautiful space to heal with nature💚 Here's a blog post I wrote about my Ayahuasca experience at the Sacred Valley center (missing it everyday). Feel free to share! Light & love🙏✨
Confiada y agradeciendo mi proceso, viviendo con más consciencia y jamás soltando el gran aprendizaje recibido en mi experiencia con las benditas medicinas🙏🏼 mis guías espirituales a todos los que fueron y son parte de mi 💗 Quiero compartir con ustedes la bendición que he recibido, este embarazo inesperado que llegó para sacudirme y WOW no voy a mentirles, estuve llena de miedo e incertidumbre por las condiciones y factores que no estaban a nuestro favor, pero siempre supe que Dios y la vida me estaba dando esto por algo. Tengo 2 hermosos hijos vivos Diego de 27 años y Sylvana de casi 17 años. Hoy tengo 4 meses de embarazo espero con mucha ilusión mi tercer hijo y por fin pudimos tener respuesta de que no hay ningún riesgo y todo marcha bien, hoy sabemos que tendremos otro niño y agradezco mucho a la vida por esto. Siento con todo mi corazón que es un Bebé Medicina🙏🏼🍃 la madrecita Ayahuasca y los tan bendecidos ícaros lo trajeron a mi✨ limpiaron mi cuerpo, mi alma, mi mente todo mi ser, mi Bebé medicina, Bebé de Luz y Amor Bienvenido Nicolás 🤲🏼💗 Les Abrazo de corazón a todos! #unsolocorazon
Hello! I will be attending the jungle retreat on the 26th of this month and was hoping to connect with other travelers prior. Is anyone else attending the same retreat?
I’m going for the jungle retreat starting on the 26th of this month. I was hoping to connect with other travelers.
Love the experience offered and people I met. Different world but not that different. Ayahuasca is amazing, nothing but love from facilitators and arkana staff. It's home away from home. My son and I shared a week together there and those memories will last a lifetime, as well as the week he spent in the Amazon. Left with change, it's real. Now that I've been there and the fear is gone feel it might be worth another trip. Best apples in the world to. Can honestly say it was the first real vacation of my life. Thank-you Arkana!!! Thank-you all the kind souls from around the world that shared their life experience with me and my son. You may have been the teachers that promote healing. It was just a total awesome experience!!!! Namaste!
Hi everyone I was hoping you could share your experience with me good or bad. I am leaning towards Arkana but I have a friend who wants to go to Rhythmia instead !!!
Hello!!! 🙋🏽‍♀️ Is it possible for Arkana to share some recipes for their foods? Would love to use some of the same dishes at home as part of my post dieta. In particular, I would love to know the seasoning used for the fish and chicken. Also there was this breakfast dish which I think what blended oatmeal with cacao flavouring and bananas? Is it possible to know the recipe? Thank you!!!! Sarah 💕⭐️
See you in September!

🦋Meet Our Shamans⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Marakame Juan⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Maestro Juan is one of the most prominent healers in the Wirrarika tradition. Healers are often referred to as Marakame, which is literally translated as: 'those that possess knowledge." He was initiated into the hikuri tradition by his grandfather and his father Cassiano, both talented healers. Marakame Juan is recognized by Unesco as one of the few medicine men that is authorized to transport fresh Hikuri wherever he goes. He holds the title of Marakame Cantor (Medicine Singer) by his fellow elders. He chants to the spirit of the hikuri to connect humans with earth and the wisdom of the cosmos.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After apprenticing for years under the guidance of his family, he began leading his own healing ceremonies at age 16 and is now with us to share his knowledge and warm spirit during your own healing process. Through his prayers, you’ll find a loving and powerful voice, and one of the purest examples of an old traditional Shaman. We are honored to have Maestro Juan amongst the staff at Arkana Yucatan!!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hikuri (Peyote) Ceremony⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the Wixarrika Hikuri ritual, a medicine circle is formed around Grandfather Fire (Tatewari). The ceremony is an all-night affair where participants ingest the Hikuri invoking the spirit of the auspicious Blue Deer (Kauyumari) a representation of Peyote. The Marakame that is leading the ceremony will sing medicine songs all night asking for blessings from the elements that will aid the participants in their quest for healing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The ceremony has 4 distinct stages:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
o Invocation: The shaman protects the space and opens the medicine calling upon the spirit of peyote to be with us for the ceremony.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
o Presentation: The shaman introduces the ceremony’s participants and intentions to grandfather peyote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
o Active Healing: The medicine songs are channeled to help each one in their process. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
o Ceremony Closing: Gratitude is offered to grandfather peyote and the elements for the blessings and healing received.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This picture captures what seems to be the spirit guardians as they descend on all guests offering their protection.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🦋Shamanic Tools⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Muwieri⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the Wixarrika Marakame (Medicine Man), the Muwieri is one of its most important shamanic tools. It is a wand decorated with colored threads, jingle bells and feathers. The Marakame will use its Muwieri to call upon the spirits of its animal allies: eagles, guacamayos during a Hikuri (Peyote) ceremony to aid him to heal the participants and clean out any negative energy from the body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Arkana is proud to support the conservation of the Wixarrika shamanic tradition in Latin America, a real treasure for the coming generations. Come join us and experience true healing partaking in time tested traditions led by an expert Marakame.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Shipibo Konibo Tribe⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gatekeepers of Ayahuasca⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For over 2000 years, the Shipibo indigenous tribes in the Ucayali region of the Amazon River basin have been considered the caretakers of the jungle. To this day, they maintain many of the traditions of their ancestors, including the ritual use of Ayahuasca and other plant medicines of the Amazon. With one foot in the past while living in the 21st century, they strive to uphold the wisdom gathered from millenia of living in the richest and most biodiverse region in the world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Perhaps the most important aspect of Shipibo culture is their deeply-rooted spirituality, with an emphasis placed on plant spirit shamanism used for healing. For them, much of their knowledge comes from the plants themselves, particularly when it comes to healthcare and their worldview. This is evidenced in their pottery, textiles, baskets, art, and beadwork, which display patterns representative of the harmonious energy field that pervades all things.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Underlying these designs is the concept of an all-encompassing reality of oneness which can challenge the typical Western mind. These patterns represent not only the oneness of creation, the non-dualistic nature of all things, the union or fusion of perceived opposites – they are also an ongoing dialogue or communion with the spiritual world and powers of the Rainforest.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The visionary art of the Shipibo brings this paradigm into a physical form. Interestingly, the icaros, or healing songs, sung during their Ayahuasca ceremonies are the representation of these patterns – a shaman can look at the patterns and sing the corresponding icaro, or hear the icaro and translate it to its corresponding pattern. In this way, their practices, products, and culture as a whole embody the rich and complex cosmological system that is their heritage.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Arkana's 7P's of Integration⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Preach-Not⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Upon the completion of a life-changing ayahuasca retreat and having experienced an awakening of some sort, people are very excited to share their experiences with everyone. We recommend being careful with this, until it's the right time and place. This P (Preach Not) refers to holding the energy inside to protect it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Be mindful that others have not been here and will not necessarily understand what you have been through⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• When you speak much, energy disperses⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Protect your attainment⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• When others see a true transformation in you they will come and ask about it⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• When someone approaches you with genuine interest share generously⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• The power of silence is stronger than words⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• The power in speech is directly proportional to the silence you observe.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Share, preach not. You will know when the time is right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Become the embodiment of the teachings you have received, your actions will speak louder than your words and will contribute to making this world a better place .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Come experience first hand this transformation at one of our ayahuasca retreats when we resume our retreats in Peru on January 10th, 2021. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Floral Baths⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Prior to an ayahuasca ceremony, it is customary in the Shipibo Tradition to offer floral baths made from various medicinal plants and flowers. Our shamans, diligently prepare these cleansing baths with multiple plants grown around our Center and in the surrounding jungle and sing icaros (medicine songs) to them. Guests are invited to put their intention into the bath, asking the spirits of the plants to cleanse their energetic field and protect them as they enter ceremony. This is a final opportunity before ceremony to calm the mind and align the body and spirit.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Master Plant Series⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Niños Santos (Psilocybe Mushrooms)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Psychedelic mushrooms have a long history of ritualistic use in Oaxaca, Mexico. Locally known as Niños Santos (Holy Children), these powerful entheogens were introduced to the Western World by local curandera Maria Sabina in the 1950's. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some say she was a very influential figure in the counterculture movement prompting the awakening of many.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nowadays, Psilocybe Mushrooms are sought after for their known ability to induce altered states of consciousness and their profound healing properties. They are extremely effective at treating diseases like depression, social anxiety, PTSD, addiction and can also heal traces of trauma stemming from physical, mental and sexual abuse. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the original Mazatec tradition, participants of the ritual ingest the mushrooms as a sacrament to open the gates of the mind. The ceremony is called a "velada" and is seen as a purification and a communion with the sacred.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On December 6 - 19, 2020, we will be co-hosting retreats with @dakotawint in Yucatan, Mexico. This will be a very special opportunity to be a part of this unique ritual. This sacred medicine will be served in its original Mazatec ritual, guided by a Shaman from the lineage of Abuela Julieta, a member of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Preparation ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Embarking on an ayahuasca journey is for many a profound experience of total transformation. As such, one must approach this opportunity with the utmost respect. One must make a total commitment to prepare our body and mind to the best of our ability. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The first step in preparing our mind, has to do with formulating an intention(s) for the ceremonies. Why are we doing this? What results do we want to achieve? By asking ourselves these questions, the process begins to take shape. Clear intentions produce results. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is also helpful to have an understanding that⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Intentions are different from having expectations⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Renounce expectations⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Always TRUST the process⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Understand the experience is unique for each person⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Know that the medicine will give you not what you want, but what you need⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be aware that the process is not always pleasant, but it is always beneficial⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Surrender and give yourself completely to the experience ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On a physical level, one of the most important aspects of preparing for a retreat is nutrition. By observing the Dieta in advance you are starting the process of cleansing and deepening your ability to connect with the medicine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We mainly recommend:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eating healthy⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Avoiding pork (very important), red meat in general, caffeine, alcohol, drugs and other plant medicines⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Minimizing salt and sugar and spice intake for at least 2 weeks before the retreat⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Drinking plenty of water⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eating lots of fruits and vegetables⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Establishing a meditation and /or yoga practice⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Generally doing things that make you happy and put you in a good mindset⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For many, giving up your favorite foods and habits can be challenging, almost impossible.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trust Us, it is totally worth it !

🦋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dia de Muertos⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated in Mexico associated with the Catholic celebrations of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day. The holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and to remember friends and family members who have died. It is commonly portrayed as a day of celebration and remembrance rather than mourning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The festivity has become a national symbol and as such is taught in the nation's school system, typically asserting a native origin. Traditions connected with the holiday include building decorated home altars called ofrendas (offerings), honoring the deceased using skulls (Calaveras), marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts and possessions of the deceased.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A common symbol of the holiday is the skull, which celebrants represent in masks, called calacas (skeleton), and foods such as sugar or chocolate skulls, which are inscribed with the name of the recipient on the forehead. Sugar skulls can be given as gifts to both the living and the dead. Other holiday foods include pan de muerto, a sweet egg bread made in various shapes from plain rounds to skulls, often decorated with white frosting to look like twisted bones.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's important to honor our loved one who departed this physical plane, but don't wait until they are no longer with us to express our love. This is an invitation to celebrate life honoring friends and family at every moment of our lives.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The Mara'akáme ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Healers of the Wirrarika People⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Literally translated as "those that know" the Mara'akáme are the healers and spiritual leaders of the Wirrarika Ethnic Group, more commonly known as Huicholes. They believe the Mara'akámes are the ambassadors to the spirit world, an integral link between people and the unseen realms of the sacred. From a very young age, they are chosen and they are groomed by their elders to learn how to heal others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Among their medicine chest, their primary tool for healing is Hikuri, the name they use to refer to the Peyote Cactus. This powerful entheogen is used in a ceremony around Tatéwari (Grandfather Fire) where they chant all night to open interdimensional portals called nierikas to invoke the blessings and healing of the medicine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every year, the Mara'akáme embark on a sacred pilgrimage to Wirikuta, the sacred desert of their ancestors to pay their respects to the land and collect their medicine for the whole year. In preparation for this pilgrimage, they must cleanse their bodies through a proper diet, fasting, and sexual abstinence ridding themselves of worldly desires. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are honored to support and respect the Wirrarika people and their traditions. Their wisdom is a treasure that must be protected for future generations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Come experience the magic of a Peyote ceremony at our Ancestral Medicines Retreat in Mexico on Dec 6 - 19. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It will be a memorable experience of profound healing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
