      How Do the Ayahuasca Retreats Work?

      Example: 1-Day Bliss Ayahuasca Retreat


      • Guests arrive around 11:11am for a welcome greeting and a Bliss Ayahuasca Retreat Center introduction discussion.


      • Our ayahuasca retreat space includes all of our large, lush, jungle garden, heart-shaped cenote pool.
      • The centre circle is where we spend most of the time and have group discussions
      • It’s outdoors with rooved shelter on the patio adjacent to the house, with over-head ceiling fan.
      • Guests have their own padded and pillowed, adjustable height sun-bed here.
      • All Guests have both an indoor (air-con room) and outdoor bed to themselves for the day.
      • Our air-conditioned Guest Room 1 in the house has 4 single beds, sofa-bed, shower-room, and is adjacent to the centre circle through sliding glass patio doors. Guest Room 2 is a 1st Floor King.


      • Around 12pm we sit together in the centre circle and share our intentions.


      • Leão leads a guided energetic anchoring visualisation – explained about more in our BLISS book.
      • This anchoring process contributes significantly to our consistently smooth, serene ayahuasca retreats.


      • First dose around 12:34pm.
      • We relax with stunning music, beautiful jungle views, and soothing rainforest nature sounds.
      • Any pre-nervous energy dissolves away instantly when drinking the 1st
      • Some Guests’ have a deeply restorative sleep during the first part of ayahuasca retreat.


      • Our relaxed, calm vibe gives Guests the freedom to move around throughout the ayahuasca retreat.
      • ‘Grounding’ in our cenote pool, chilling with AC in our Guest Room or enjoying a nature spot.
      • Engaging with all the elements during ayahuasca retreat can be especially energising, such as lying on rocks and Earth, or in the pool, Sun, or breeze.
      • 8 crystal tables spaced around our centre circle are adorned with many crystals which Guests can use during their ayahuasca retreats. Lara makes crystal suggestions to Guests.
      • The first two hours of ayahuasca retreat flow peacefully and enjoyably.


      • We speak to everyone around 2 hours which includes discussing and preparing for the 2nd
      • While we are preparing the 2nd dose, we have a half-time interval where we stop the music and relax the vibe. Guests often enjoy exploring the garden around this time.


      • Our second is around 2pm. The volume of this dose is usually around 50% of the 1st


      • During the 3rd and 4th hours, we guide Guests using our simple “Sleep-Meditation” method, which is usually when the most magical and miraculous moments of the Bliss Ayahuasca retreat Method blossom.
      • Guests have particularly profound experiences and epiphanies in the hours directly after the 2nd dose, when deep mind/body/spirit soul-transformation occurs.


      • After the deep-work is seamlessly and smoothly undergone, Guest’s sometimes feel overcome to express themselves in various liberating ways, such as Channelling, Chanting, Writing, Singing, Dancing, Moving, Rapping, Poetry, Yoga, and Laughing!
      • Our secluded jungle wooden yoga deck is a popular space for this.
      • Divine-Self-Expression is also core element to our unique spiritual ascension teachings.


      • We have a delicious fruit-salad when Guests start to feel hungry.
      • They can choose from a variety of local organic fruits and tasty toppings.
      • Fruit: papaya, pineapple, passion fruit, lime-juice, & banana.
      • Toppings: dried-blueberries, coconut-shreds, amaranto, chai-seed, linseed & local Mayan honey.


      • Guests embody and radiate a strong all-round energetic After-Glow following the ayahuasca retreat.
      • They look and feel very happy, light and smiley, often wondering how long they will feel this way!
      • Around 4-6pm, we open the space for Guests to share about their experiences, as much or as little as they feel, or the Guests may feel like some serene, reflective silence towards the end of the day.
      • Guest’s either stay with us for dinner and sleep or depart for their hotel when-ever they are feeling super-ready, between 5-7pm.

      What is Our Mission?

      • Our Mission is to Catalyse-&-Create Heaven-on-New-Earth, 5D-Gaia.

      • The method works with one or two doses of plant medicine on an empty stomach, two hours apart, usually drinking the first dose around 12:34pm.
      • Ayahuasca is served as a thickish, brown-green, earthy brew in small shot-size glasses 5-50ml.

      • Bufo is served through smoking one inhalation of the dried toad resin through a small glass pipe.
      • Plant ceremonies take up the whole day, with the effects usually being felt within the first hour and lasting for 4-6 hours.
      • The Bufo ceremony lasts 1 – 2 hours total, with the deepest part of the ceremony usually lasting between 15min – 45min after the initial inhalation.
      • Private Plant Ceremonies can involve any number of participants who drink at the same time whereas we only serve 1 or 2 Bufo Guests in one sitting.
      • We source our medicine from an exceptionally high quality producer based in Mexico.
      • Casa Anamaya are a team led by an established Master Curandero with full Western medical training, who now specialises in mixing medicines and healing from different traditions.

      Which Medicine is Right for Me?

      • Your intuition (inner-tutor) will provide the answer to this.

      What Should I Bring?

      • Warm Weather Clothing
      • Written Intentions
      • Swimming Costume


      • We speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.

      What should I eat in the days before the Ayahuasca Retreats?

      • For 3 days before your ayahuasca retreat, we advise: 1) Avoiding meat and alcohol, minimising caffeine and dairy 2) Eating light, clean, nutrient-dense, non-processed food and drinks
      • Following a healthy pre-diet before ayahuasca retreats helps physical cleansing and can allow for a clearer and deeper spiritual connection.
      • How strict one should be? It is best to eat intuitively and consciously.

      What should I eat or drink on the morning of my Ayahuasca Retreat Ceremony Days?

      • We recommend participants skip their breakfast before the ayahuasca retreat, so they will be fasting from dinner the night before. This is an important aspect of preparation and will also minimise the likelihood of physical purging. We only recommend drinking water or juice at this time.

      What is the Ayahuasca Purge?

      • This is the physical release by which the ayahuasca experience purifies and detoxifies all of our bodies. With the Bliss method, the ayahuasca purge usually takes the form of a short vomiting or diarrhoea episode.
      • This is the most quick and effective way to remove the densest toxins and chemicals stored within the deepest layers of our cells that weigh us down, physically, emotionally, and mentally.
      • We literally become and feel so much “lighter” once we lovingly and appreciatively say goodbye to our long-held deep-physical toxins during this short and profound release.
      • Purging on the Bliss method happens much less often than in the Shamanic Tradition.
      • Celebrating and appreciating the purge as a divine healing and expansive experience makes the experience more effective and enjoyable!
      • Due to this profound cleansing, the Guest has a new “high-&-positive” experience directly after every purge.
      • Examples include a leap in consciousness, a deeper spiritually connective experience, crystal clear clarity, boundless bliss, etc…!

      How does the Dosing work?

      • We have created a new dosing protocol for our Bliss Ayahuasca Retreats which has proved very successful. Getting the dosage right is an essential component of the Bliss method.
      • One major discovery set forth in our book is that “ less-is-more” especially with Ayahuasca.
      • We meticulously measure each does by the millilitre and take into consideration many different factors in deciding each individual dose.
      • Doses are served in small shot-size glasses usually ranging between 10-30ml per dose.
      • Everyone has an optimal “dose-size-range” for a particular ayahuasca ceremony, which changes between days and ceremonies. We have become experts at finding and staying within that range.

      Who are the Guides for Ayahuasca Retreat and Other Medicine Ceremonies?

      • Guided by New-World Self-Realised Bliss-Beings, rather than Old-Lineage Shamans.
      • Lara & Leão expertly and lovingly Guide, Care, & Support Guests, before, during, and after the booking, ayahuasca retreat, and post-retreat integration process.
      • They get lots of help from their adored animal guides and pet-babies, Light & Amor who provide lots of emotional support and joy for Guests.
      • They have guided over 100 Guests through Natural Spirit Medicine Retreats, all with profound Holistic Healing & Expansion results since arriving at Bliss Eden in September 2021
