Retreat Dieta

The Ayahuasca Retreat Dieta at SpiritQuest Sanctuary
You’ll be served excellent fresh organic food at SpiritQuest Sanctuary. Observing the traditional vegetalista diet, you will abstain salt, refined sugar, red meat, animal fat, excessive oils, hot spices, and sexual activity from three days before until three days after the final Ayahuasca ceremony.

Pork, alcoholic beverages and other contraindicated drugs and substances should be abstained from two weeks before to two weeks after work with Ayahuasca.

Though posing no special risks (except fermented alcohol, some drugs/medications, and pork), these foods and condiments are abstained to purify the body, mind, and spirit and clear the senses to prepare you for the deep cleansing and holistic benefits of ayahuasca, bobinsana, and other Amazonian plant medicines.

Respecting the dieta also demonstrates the sincerity of your intention and helps to heighten your sensitivity to the plant medicines.

Temporary abstinence from sexual activity, including masturbation, is an important aspect of the dieta. This offering to the spirit of Ayahuasca conserves essential energy and helps to guide your mental and spiritual focus in more esoteric realms (see ). Many people find their libido enhanced following work with Ayahuasca.

The SpiritQuest ayahuasca dieta consists of grilled or boiled fish, vegetable or chicken soup, rice or quinoa, boiled, browned, or mashed potatoes, yuca (cassava), heart of palm (chonta), eggs, and a variety of vegetables and fruits raw, boiled, or lightly stir-fried. Vegetarian/vegan preferences are readily accommodated.

Unsweetened fruit drinks (refrescos) are made from a variety of native fruits mixed with water. A variety of compatible teas and coffee are available. We recommend coffee not be consumed from 12 hours before to 12 hours after taking Ayahuasca.
