During your pre-session call with Macha, she will ask you different questions such as: What are you looking for in the journey? Are you entering the experience with a certain need in your life? Do you want to explore something? Do you need healing? Do you have an emotional relationship that is problematic, burdened by childhood issues? Do you want to be connected more with spirits or explore your relationship with nature? Do you have a mental health condition, heart problems, history of bipolar disorder? Are you currently taking antidepressant or antipsychotic medication?

You don’t have to have a pathology to have an experience, but it’s a good idea to know why you’re doing it. Other basic aspects of preparation include writing a journal and preparing the body by fasting and avoiding alcohol.
