5 Essential Tips for Preparing For Your First Ayahuasca Ceremony

So you’ve received your call to drink ayahuasca for the first time. Now what??

I feel like most people live in this zone of life. There’s something that you’ve always wanted to do in life, but there’s an inner voice that keeps resisting to go on that adventure, learn a new skill, or maybe even ask someone out on a date.

This time you feel called to go to the Amazon Rainforest, but do nothing to make steps towards your dream.

Come on!! It’s time to LIVE!!

Once you feel the call within you to experience Mother Ayahuasca it’s time to research and prepare for your first ceremony.

Even if you’re not ready to make the trip to South America at the moment, you would be surprised how easy it is to start preparing for your first ceremony.

1. Research Ayahuasca Centers

One way you can start the preparation process is by researching ayahuasca centers near you and in South America online. Ani Shinan is a great option if you are looking to have an authentic ayahuasca experience for the first time with indigenous shamans or if you are interested in doing a plant or tree dieta deep in the depths of the Amazon rainforest of Peru.

The beauty of the internet today is that it’s now possible to connect with centers online way before you even make the commitment to drink ayahuasca. Most places will be very open to receiving your questions regarding ayahuasca, so it’s a great idea to go straight to the source with any concerns you may have.

2. Read Articles and Books about Ayahuasca

Reading about ayahuasca is surprisingly a wonderful way to get started on your ayahuasca journey. I became fascinated with ayahuasca in 2017 after I read an article titled My Ayahuasca Experience - A Heavenly Hell by Troy Erstling, someone who I am extremely lucky to call one of my best friends and mentor when I need advice in my life.
