RETREATS FOR PTSD

Many people struggle with PTSD and as a result, often feel isolated and insular. This happens when you feel so overwhelmed and depressed by your feelings. The great news is PTSD can be cured, and Ayahuasca is one of the most efficient ways out there. This plant medicine can help you relieve your symptoms and find an outlet that you didn’t know existed.

Many people are looking for natural ways to help them cope with PTSD, and Ayahuasca is one such way to heal. At Avalon’s retreats for PTSD you will learn how to find the light within and learn the techniques to fight back.

Why should I go on a retreat for PTSD?

If you’ve been living with PTSD you may already have tried everything to heal and feel better, such as psychotherapy and medication.

Additionally, group therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy are approaches that can be helpful. However, the stark reality is that around 33% of PTSD sufferers are treatment-resistant. If you belong to this group, you are not alone.

Retreats for PTSD are becoming more common. The renaissance of psychedelics as a treatment for mental health issues is becoming increasingly popular. It’s receiving a great deal of attention from health professionals and the scientific community, with the ongoing emergence of studies showing excellent results. The Western world is currently dealing with a mental health crisis and desperately needs authentic solutions.

Retreats for PTSD sufferers, such as Avalon’s retreats in Barcelona and Ibiza, offer therapeutic support. They are a holistic solution for mental wellness issues, including PTSD. 

An Ayahuasca ceremony is a sacred, integrative alternative treatment. Many PTSD sufferers experience immense relief from their symptoms after taking part in Ayahuasca ceremonies. It is a holistic root-cause treatment that heals the body, the mind and the spirit. A truly complete healing paradigm.

At Avalon, shamans, guides, and a team of professionals are at your disposal. They are waiting to support you. Avalon presents one of the most effective retreats for PTSD. We gently and expertly help you to integrate the teachings of this sacred plant medicine. We support you so that you find the wisdom and strength to overcome your trauma; to move past it and detach from the original event that caused it. Our caring family loves to see you thrive. It is their life’s work and purpose.

Our sacred medicines and practices enable you to reclaim your true self, allowing you to release your trauma.

What is PTSD?

4 day Holistic Ayahuasca Retreat in Barcelona, Spain (Oct 10 - 13, 2024) | Avalon

Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, develops in some people after experiencing distressing and frightening events. The event itself is traumatic.

PTSD is a syndrome of symptoms that develop due to this trauma. It can take months and years to develop.

These symptoms are often devastating and affect the sufferer negatively. Often, the patient experiences difficulty with daily life, work, and relationships. The experience of the past trauma becomes a repeated loop of trauma, a mental pattern. It causes the sufferer to develop certain behaviours. These behavioural patterns often affect the sufferer and the people around them. Sometimes, the sufferer is also caught in a pattern of addiction.

The causes of PTSD are varied. They include assault, an accident, a natural disaster, physical or mental abuse, and war.

PTSD can develop in anyone of all nationalities and cultures, and at any age. In the early years, even minor events can cause trauma in children, with PTSD emerging later in life.

It is estimated one in 11 people will be diagnosed with PTSD during their lifetime. Undiagnosed PTSD is almost certainly much higher, as many people learn coping mechanisms and repress the symptoms.There is a thin line between the events that lead to PTSD. Not only what we call ¨big ¨traumatic events¨ count. PTSD can also surface as a result of a slow, subtle,  always-present event.

Reviews

Want to know what other people who have taken their journey with Avalon think about our retreats? Here are some of their thoughts and appraisals:

How can ayahuasca help with PTSD?

This sacred plant medicine and the Ayahuasca traditional rituals provide true holistic healing.  

Indigenous people have known about and ingested the mind-expanding mystical drink for millennia. Shamans and curanderos have devotedly prepared Ayahuasca in medicinal rituals to purge and heal mind, body and soul. Over the years, many participants in PTSD retreats reported having been mentally and physically cured after receiving the medicine. This gave birth to more and more wellness retreats dedicated to this disorder.

Of course, since we are working with a sacred plant medicine, a master plant, the healing experience is much more profound. The healing is on an emotional, spiritual and universal level. It is not merely psychological.

Recent scientific studies have shown that Ayahuasca has both anti-anxiety and anti-depressant properties. They have proven that even a single dose of Ayahuasca showed ongoing anti-depressant results. Even six months after ingesting Ayahuasca, psychiatric assessments showed overall improved mental health. They could also discern a perceptible change in attitude. 

Many PTSD patients have reported being healed after the Ayahuasca experience. They describe it as a profound spiritual experience. It can take many forms. Often the plant spirit appears to the sufferer and teaches them how to react differently to the trauma. Ultimately, the plant spirit imparts the wisdom of how to let the trauma go by allowing you to see and understand the value in every lived experience.

HOLISTIC APPROACH

You can also participate in yoga sessions, Rapé ceremonies, and integration workshops parallel to the Ayahuasca ceremonies. Other medicines are also available. The Kambó ritual can bring you a deep physical, emotional, energetic, and spiritual cleanse; and the powerful Bufo Alvarius from the Sonoran desert (Mexico) can provide you freedom from limiting patterns and old traumas.

Moreover, Holotropic breathing is taught, as breath is an important way to access your inner world in a natural way. 

Breathing is a simple tool that always accompanies you. Silent ecstatic dance is another wonderful way for your body to express and integrate the information and creativity you download for the Ayahuasca teachings. Creative writing is another tool we use for expression, understanding and integration. Hypnotherapy and guidance sessions will also help you to dive deeper into the corners of your subconscious and to make sense of and integrate your teaching experiences.

Avalon is a new dawn for those who seek to no longer call themselves patients of PTSD.

Book your retreat now if you feel resonance. Follow your intuition and know your destiny and purpose. An experience that will change your life and offers true universal healing from the source of life itself.
