what is ayahuasca
Ayahuasca is a mixture of various plants, which originally comes from the Amazon. The main ingredient is Banisteriopsis caapi. People drink ayahuasca as a tea, to cause spiritual experiences.

Spiritual experiences

At Avalon you can find various types of ayahuasca ingredients, such as leaves and extracts. Ayahuasca is a strong brew which can generate special experiences. This is partly due to the DMT-containing plants in combination with plants containing MAOI inhibitors, that evoke these spiritual experiences. The exact effects are different for everyone, but many people talk about a 'rebirth' or a 'spiritual awakening'. Because of the impact ayahuasca can have on you, it’s recommended to only use together with a shaman. Then there are fewer risks, because the shaman ensures that you use the right amount. Fun fact: many people combine their holidays in the Amazon with an ayahuasca session with a shaman.
