Circle & Vision Quests

*Private Ceremonies are held at your home or a suitable location
of your choosing

Ayamorphosis Weekend/3-Day Circle

The Ayamorphosis Weekend Circle starts on a Friday evening and finishes on Sunday mid-afternoon. Please be ready to leave by 3 p.m. on the Sunday (or the last day of a 3-Day Circle).

It is imperative that you arrive on the Friday evening, and not turn up on the Saturday for the Ayamorphosis Weekend. If you are attending a 3-Day Circle please ensure you arrive for the first night, not on the second day. A special sacrament may be offered as part of a Group-Bonding session instead of Ayahuasca on the first night of both the Ayamorphosis Weekend Circle and 3-Day Circle. The Group-Bonding session is seen as an essential part of our process, to make everyone feel comfortable prior to the intensive vision quest and journeying.

Food will be only be served on the first evening if Ayahuasca is not offered that night. Breakfast and a Light Lunch will be served on the second day. However, we advise you not eat after midday on your second day so as to be in peak condition for your first Ayahuasca ceremony that night. The medicine is less effective on a full stomach. You will also purge much more if you eat later on in the day. Supervised Yogic-Vomiting or a Kambo Ceremony may be offered prior to the main ceremony. It is optional.

* Please note that the schedule is the same for the 3-Day Retreat held on weekdays

Ayamorphosis does not accept responsibility for any personal injury, loss or damage of personal property while on retreat with us. You are responsible for your belongings and for taking out personal travel insurance.
Ayamorphosis does not sell any of the sacraments it provides on retreat. Use of the sacraments by Ayamorphosis does NOT mean they are legal in other countries or your country of origin. Therefore, this website does not serve to propagate the use of substances that may be considered illegal in other countries. Neither does this website recommend that you take these sacraments alone and/or without supervision. In fact, the very opposite is true. It can be traumatic and extremely dangerous to take mind-altering substances alone, without supervision and in a safe environment. It is for this very reason that Ayamorphosis exists: to provide a safe, supportive place for you to experience these sacraments with guides, and in countries where we are working within the framework of the law.
