QuoteThe first day was a deeply moving, exorcism inducing, heart opening ayahuasca ceremony.
QuoteWe were led in a session of stretches and pranayama exercises to induce a state of calm relaxation and deep breathing.
QuoteWe gathered in a circle to share intention while the perimeter of the ceremonial space was closed with sacred objects.
