How To Prepare for Ayahuasca

WHAT TO WEAR

They suggest wearing light or white color clothing. Know that you are coming into a sacred meditation space. Comfortable clothing is usually what most people prefer, natural fabrics are recommended. Have extra layers, it can get cold sometimes

POTLUCK

They ask people to bring foods to share after the meditation.  We shared a beautiful breakfast the next morning and your contribution is very much appreciated.  Some things to bring: Organic eggs, vegetable for omelets, fruits, nuts, nut butters, breads, hummus, crackers, etc. Please bring organic and healthy foods. They had a very large kitchen to cook and gather in my space.
