Ceremony leader (Demi) has been working with this medicine for over 13 years. She studied in the Shipibo-Conibo Tradition in the Peruvian Amazon with the well known and highly Respected Shaman, Don Enrique Lopez at the Ayahuasca Foundation - Iquitos, Peru.
When you participate in ceremonies you have the opportunity to see the truth behind the pain and suffering; that you don’t need to live that life any more and you don’t need to keep doing the things that make you unhappy.
remember, however, Ayahuasca isn’t for everybody. this is deeply transformative work that allows you to align with who you truly are, not who you think you should be or what society, family and friends tell you who you should be, but who you really are.
Our Ceremonies are held in a semi-traditional format which include live singing of Icaros (sacred healing songs of the amazon) Chacapas, Drums, rattles and other instruments. Ceremonies are NOT parties, raves or social gatherings. They are places of respectful communion and self-empowering healing.
Ceremony Leader has also received the Peruvian Munay-Ki rites of Initiation.
The Munay-Ki are a series of nine Empowerment rites based on the initiatory practices of the Q'ero shamans of Peru, as taught by psycologist Alberto Villoldo. "Munay" in Quechua means "love and will", together with "ki", from the Chinese word for energy, combine to give the meaning: energy of love

We are in the midst of what many are calling a psychedelic renaissance. After decades of prohibition, both MDMA- and psilocybin-assisted therapies have been granted Breakthrough Therapy designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are expected to become medicinally available in just a few years. Psychedelics show great promise in treating conditions like depression, anxiety, addiction, PTSD, and more. As psychedelic medicine rapidly enters the mainstream, education on safety, cultural perspectives, and spiritual significance of these substances become increasingly important.
