A HEROS JOURNEY
PICK UP & DROP OFF IN SÃO PAULO
Pick Up: 15:00 – 16:00
Drop Off: 10:00 – 11:00 AM next Day
It will take us about an hour to reach our destination in Bertioga. Once arrived, there is time to acclimate to your surroundings. You will get to know the facilitators, participants and the terrain. Also, this is the perfect time to set up your personal space, so you can lie down during the ceremony whenever you feel like.
Brazilian spiritual, non-profit communities offer open Ayahuasca ceremonies, charging only what they need to cover their expenses. Ayahuasca churches and communities in Brazil rarely advertise and seldom have a searchable presence on the web. We make this safe and inspiring experience in accessible for non-locals.
There is indeed something very special about this place. Maybe it is the sparkly river that runs by the back of the premises. Or the modest facilitators, the enchanting music, the sounds of the surrounding nature or the sizzling fire. But most of all the warmhearted community.
As soon as the sun sets, a big campfire is lit and the participants gather around it. You can grab a chair and make yourself comfortable. Everybody gets a chance to express the personal intention going into the ceremony. Then a moderate dose of Ayahuasca is served. After about 40 to 60 minutes a second dose is served for those who are not yet feeling any effects and those who want to dive deep. This is repeated about 40 minutes later. The ceremony will be accompanied by enchanting live music. There is a lot of space on the covered veranda and around the campfire, ideally you bring a sleeping pad, a cozy blanket and your most comfortable cloth.
Early in the morning we have a breakfast composed of juices, fresh fruit, bread and pastry. We then take you to your drop off location.
While the immediate effects of Ayahuasca can be profound, we emphasize that the real work begins after the ceremony. We will proactively support your effort to utilize the afterglow in order to live up to your new upgraded self, during the weeks following the ceremony.

AIRPORT PICK UP
We pick you up at the airport in Alto Paraiso. You will have the chance to do some shopping in Alto Paraiso before we take you 13 km inwards on a rough, bumpy road to the incredible Mariri Jungle Lodge.
In the heart of Brazil in Alto Paraíso de Goias, located in the Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park region lies the “Mariri Jungle Lodge”. It is a half-hour drive from the town of Alto Paraíso, an esoteric town of mysticism, natural therapies and spiritual healing. This peaceful place is surrounded by beautiful raw nature, where you have a chance to observe monkeys, exotic birds, go hiking and connect with the spirit of the Brazilian Savannah.
Accompanied by instruments and the sounds of nature, the ceremonies are designed for deep self exploration and the development of autonomy in the use of powerful plant medicines. Through direct contact, nature becomes a fundamental element in the process of healing. Allowing the inner self to reconnect with earth, fire, air, water, plants, animals. Life.
It’s essential to recognize that many physical and spiritual effects of ayahuasca do not conclude with the end of the retreat. The real work begins after this. During the weeks following the retreat, we will proactively support your effort to utilize the afterglow in order to live up to your new upgraded self.

Ayahuasca, How Does it Work?
Daniel M. Greiner
Founder of Ayawakening
Following my first ceremony I soon realized that something remarkable was going on in my mind. What I had tried to achieve with meditation for decades, suddenly seemed second nature. I felt a deep sense of awareness, pure gratitude and complete fearlessness. I experienced breakthroughs in my professional career and personal relationships. Was this really all due to the effects of Ayahuasca? I intensified my research on the subject and soon found that science backed up my personal experience. Studies show that mindfulness and creative abilities skyrocket during the Ayahuasca afterglow. How could I keep this to myself?
