How to prepare yourself for the retreat.
There are very warm and humid in the jungle. Cloth should be comfortable, made of a thin fabric that dries quickly.
Do not take leather or leatherette stuff. In a few days it will be covered with mold.
We will supply you with umbrella and clean rubber boots.
Vaccinations before visit the jungle of the Amazon are optional. But you can consult a doctor.
Diet before retreat
10-14 days before the start of the retreat you need to exclude from your diet:
Diet during retreat
For safe and deep contact with plants, you need to follow a certain diet. Some plants absolutely do not welcome most of the usual foods or usual methods of cooking.
Diet can be strict ("white" diet) or soft depending on your goals, the duration of the retreat, plants you are using.
For a retreat with Chiric Sanango or Camalonga, a “white” diet is necessary: - 1 type of river fish grilled on coals, and 1 type of boiled vegetable (usually it is a boiled non-sweet banana). This is a traditional shaman diet. This diet contains all the substances and elements necessary for your health.
For a retreat with Ayahuasca, a milder diet is allowed:
For sure, there are some individual exceptions to the rules there.
For a soft and smooth exit from the retreat, we supply you with right food.
Camp Mariri is not a tourist recreation area. There is the village by the neighborhood, but the camp is situated in the jungle. The first and basic rule is to be behave differently, which means forget your habits, weaken their influence, and get rid of some of them. Leave all your ideas and expectations outside the camp. This will make you flexible enough for perception of new reality.
During the retreat prohibited:
Violation of the rules may result interruption of the retreat and transfer to the city within 24 hours. In case of violation of any of the items listed, or leaving the retreat without permission, the paid amount will not be refund.
Conditions of life in the camp:
Single hut with all necessary facilities: bed, table, chair, hammock. Instead of walls - mosquito net. You are protected, but not fenced off from nature.
