CONTRAINDICATIONS


People suffering from schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, dissociation, any type of psychosis or other severe mental health disorders, or who may feel suicidal, are prohibited from participating. Individuals with severe heart problems, and those with severe high blood pressure are also prohibited from participating in our rituals. Ayahuasca may interfere with the effectiveness of antibiotics. Stimulants and antihistamines are contraindicated with ayahuasca. We do not recommend that pregnant women drink ayahuasca. If you have any physical or mental health conditions, or if you have taken any kind of medication, including any street drugs, and especially MAOI inhibitors or other psychiatric medication, within the previous two weeks, please share this with us before registering.

What to bring

Organic/All-natural products are requested as an offering of respect to the ecosystems of Peru. Listed below are recommendations that have been compiled by previous dieta participants. Feel free to reach out to your event coordinators with any questions or concerns regarding packing or anything in general.

You will need a 10-day backpack, with an additional duffle bag and or day pack for any items purchased in Peru. Suitcases are not ideal for carrying onto the property. Please be sure to let your event coordinators know if you will need help carrying your bag. There is small monetary donation recommended [for the person carrying your bag], if that should be the case

Recommended Clothes and personal accesories:
  • 3-5 Long sleeve, lightweight, quick dry shirts
  • 3-5 Short sleeve shirts
  • 2/3 long pants (same type material)
  • 2 shorts
  • No less than 13 pairs of undies
  • Bras that are lightweight/quick-dry
  • Sleep clothes (2 sets)
  • Long socks with a tight weave to keep bugs out are wonderful to have.
  • Bathing suit and cover-up (if prefered)
  • Lightweight warm jacket
  • Lightweight rain jacket
  • Hat
  • Pillowcase
    (not necessary, but you may like the feel of your fabric from home)
  • Lightweight blanket
    (There will be a personal blanket available in your sleeping area, as well as in the ceremonial Maloka. If another is needed, feel free to bring your own or purchase one in Tarapoto.)
  • Toiletries
    All natural soap, shampoo/conditioner, lotion and or coconut oil, lightweight quick dry towel, q-tips, razors, wet wipes, all natural tampons (the medicine can bring a woman’s cycle on unexpectedly), contact wearers will likely want extra pairs or glasses, and anything to make your stay comfortable.
  • Shoes
    Slip on sandals
    Good tread walking/hiking shoes
    Crocs Shoes are ideal! Although there are places to purchase them in Tarapoto, they can be a tad tricky to find. If you are up for planning on an adventure to purchase them there, please keep in mind you will be in a native Spanish-speaking community with European sizes.
  • Journal
  • Any small items you may want to ground you (crystals, etc.)
  • Coloring book and pencils (remember your sharpener), or other meditative project
  • Reading materials
    Are suggested in whatever format you like. There will be a small, yet growing library on-site! Feel free to bring something that you may like to donate! It is often recommended that your reading choices be in alignment with the work that you are there to do. Think: positive, self-exploration, spirituality, cosmology, plant medicines…
IF AVAILABLE IN YOUR AREA, THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ARE VERY EFFECTIVE IF USED PROPERLY:
  • Herbal Armour Bug Spray
    (at least 8oz.)
  • Herbal Armour Insect Repellant Sticks
  • Boericke & Tafel SssstingStop Topical Gel is an all-natural and effective remedy for itch and irritation.
    Dragon’s Blood (for itch and pain of insect bites-works well but leaves a red stain on skin)
  • Sunscreen
  • Mirror
  • Candle
  • Bic Lighters
    For personal use and as gifts for shaman (lighters in Peru are not well-made)
  • Matches
  • Headlamp flashlight
    With red light setting (Headlamps allow your hands to be free and red light is ideal as the eyes are quite sensitive when we are using the medicine.)
  • Batteries (backup for your flashlight)
  • Handheld fan
  • Water bottle
  • Tea
    (non-caffeine, no detox, liver or kidney stimulants such as kava kava) There will be several kinds of tea available for enjoyment.
  • Backup battery pack
    (Patriot Fuel+ is excellent)
    During dieta, you are encouraged to remain off of your electronic devices, sans kindles.

Extra Tips:

There may be someone on-site to offer a laundry service. If so, you are asked to make a good monetary donation for the service. Keep in mind that the weather is unpredictable and may rain, creating longer drying times. Pack appropriately for your needs.

If you don’t speak Spanish but are interested in learning, there are some great Spanish speaking apps such as Babbel and DuoLingo to get you started. 🙂
