THE DIET is a unique opportunity to cleanse, heal and continue learning.
It is a practice to PURIFY ourselves of all that we have accumulated.
The diet is a space to pause our lives to realize the things we carry, our blocks, our programs, traumas, emotions, and thoughts to continue growing and developing.
DIET is to the shamans of the Peruvian Amazon what YOGA and MEDITATION are to the Indians.
The DIET is the initiation to the spiritual path and the practice of SELF-knowledge and SELF-DISCOVERY.
To start a new year with this type of practice is to work on ourselves to create a better year, a better life where we can manifest everything we always dreamed of, and all start from within.
Cellphones and electronics will not be allowed during the dieta.
Your phones will be taken for safekeeping by the facilitators. If you, for whatever reason, really need your phone, you will have to talk to the facilitator. If you cannot be in SILENCE, please do not take part in this event.
It is essential in this process to be in silence and to be able to listen to our inner voices.
We will have sharing circles and time for individual talks.
During the DIETA, YOU CAN NOT USE ANY CLEANING PRODUCTS; your BODY WILL TAKE TIME TO DETOX.
Retreat/Diet - Conditions
The diet is an important work involving the inner self and only gives a good result if people accept the commitment to follow some simple rules. Failure to respect these rules can nullify the effect of plants but also result in energy crossings ("cruzadera") with serious physical, mental and spiritual consequences. It is a process that requires an assumption of responsibility.
The first thing to do in a diet is a purge session.
The diet starts with an ayahuasca session. There are no ayahuasca sessions after the diet since it is necessary to process the material that has arisen, and experience proves that it is not helpful.
The diet is followed by a post-diet process as important as the diet itself. It involves dietary rules and restrictions for a minimum of 2 weeks and one month of sexual abstinence after the end of the diet. This is the necessary time for the assimilation and integration of the energy of the plants incorporated during the diet. Undertaking the diet involves committing to those recommendations that are mandatory. Failing to follow them can lead to energetic complications with physical, mental, or spiritual manifestations.
What you can / cannot bring with you.
During the Retreat/Diet, it’s recommended to use any beauty or cleaning products (soap, perfume, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, repellent, essential oils, etc.) since the slightest smell can seriously affect the energy work. This includes all the products that can have an odor like oils, nail polish, candles, incense, etc. You will only have water and a special soap made for the occasion at your disposal. Other items that you cannot bring with you are music equipment, radio, cellphone, watch, money, or personal documents.
TAITA INTI shall not be held responsible for the loss or deterioration of valuables you take to the retreat.
You should bring cotton clothes, a towel, a coat, a flashlight and spare batteries, 2 or 3 books and a notebook to write or draw. Extra food in addition to the one proposed by the Center is not allowed. Please bring white or light-colored clothes for the ayahuasca ceremony.
We will provide you with: sheets, a blanket, pillowcase, mineral water, perfume-free soap, toilet paper, a mosquito net for the bed, and a hammock.
