Ayahuasca Retreats in Ecuador | Overview

In this post, you’ll find an overview of Ayahuasca retreat and ceremony facilitators in Ecuador, South America.

Drinking the Ayahuasca brew has become a sought-after traditional healing modality among Westerners, popular for its abilities to cure a range of health conditions on the physical, emotional, and spiritual plane.

It can be a help to heal physical illnesses and discomforts, but also a means for profound inner reflection, trauma release, spiritual growth, gaining deeper knowledge about one’s unconscious aspirations, and acquiring more insight in the world around us.

Ayahuasca retreats typically involve consuming the Ayahuasca tea during an Ayahuasca ceremony. Usually, a retreat will offer several ceremonies during your stay in the center, which depends on the aims of your stay and the time you spend in the retreat.

Apart from working with Ayahuasca, retreat centers often also offer other traditional medicines, such as Master Plant Diets, Rapé snuff, San Pedro Cactus Medicine, Mapacho, Floral Baths, Bufo Toad Medicine, and/or Peyote, to give some examples.

Many retreats also include the option to participate in additional activities, such as Yoga classes, massage treatments, Breathwork, hikes, meditation sessions, and so on.

Ayahuasca retreats have different durations (and different prices attached to those), and can take just a couple of days, but also several weeks. In most cases, the retreat facilitator or Shaman will ask you to prepare yourself psychologically and physically for the retreat, which includes a range of precautions to be taken into account, while abstaining from certain foods, drinks, and activities before, during, and after the retreat.

You will usually be able to join some sort of aftercare program that helps you to digest and subsequently integrate the Ayahuasca experience in your life. This program typically starts already during the retreat, and in general you can also consult the facilitator when you’re back home.

Below then a selection of the Ayahuasca retreat centers we’ve spotted in Ecuador. Mind that Ayahuasca and San Pedro Cactus Medicine are not legal in Ecuador for recreational purposes, but they are permitted for spiritual ceremonial and shamanic use.
