AyAwakening integrates ceremony, science and meditation. We offer Weekend Retreats and a 10 Day Mastermind. Our mastermind utilizes the positive effects on mindfulness and brain-plasticity during the ayahuasca afterglow. If used intentionally, the increase in brain-plasticity and neurogenesis in the brain during the Ayahuasca Afterglow allow you to overwrite habitual behavior more easily. Your mindfulness and creative abilities skyrocket and you become less judgmental about others. Studies show that ayahuasca might be a safe alternative to antidepressants. In our afterglow workshop, you can learn how to integrate your ayahuasca experience in a safe, purposeful and productive manner. The ability and willingness to self-reflect is probably the most important psychological prerequisite for the intake of ayahuasca.
Santos is a dream holiday town. It is so save that you can watch families playing with their kids up to midnight at the beach. Daniel guided us and gave us more information about the working of Ayahuasca. As we are not religious and not even vegan, I welcomed his scientific approach. For the ceremony he took us to a place an hour drive from Santos. We did not need a specific diet or any other preparations, we just went as we are. We mixed with Brazilians and Westerners. The night was cool, the music inspiring and the tea was working well. The next morning we felt like new born. I still feel the afterglow back in my home in London.
It was all soft and easy and inspiring, we will go again.
I attended one of Daniels workshops during my travels in Brazil last month, after wanting to experience the plant for a long time. In Brazil its a lot of Aya ceremonies happening, with different styles. What Daniel did was finding a ceremony based on my preference, helped me prepare mentally for the ceremony by providing well researched and scientific information about the plant and its short and long-term effects (even though I’ve also done my own research, I found this very useful – and I could also discuss my worries with him). The ceremony we attended was in a small and free-minded community outside of Sao Paulo, a place I would never had the chance to find on my own. The setting was very comfortable with a bonfire and amazing music. None of the other participants or the hosts there spoke english very well, so I felt very safe having Daniel there to translate, and he also made sure that I was feeling comfortable during the ceremony without acting like a babysitter (I was actually a bit afraid that it would feel like that), and I had the full space to have my own experience. I was also brought safely to the ceremony and back the morning after. Daniel is a very kind and down-to-earth guy, that genuinely wants to show people what this medicine is capable of doing. I’m not gonna go into my experience, because its very individual, but it was amazing, and can totally recommend Daniel as a facilitator / guide for anyone that is curious or feels the call to experience this magical plant.
All my life, I struggled with low self-esteem and anxiety. I sought an inner peace that I had never found.
I read about ayahuasca and I was filled with hope. But when I arrived at the ritual I did not like the environment and judged many people there.
After I drank ayahuasca I spent 4 hours feeling the effects of the tea. I received so many answers, so many teachings, so many visions. A feeling of gratitude for everything reigned in me. I understood the meaning of life is to love. I immediately loved all those people who were there, the trees, the moon, the cats. Everything was perfect and magical. I felt a peace I had never felt in my life. During the next week I floated with happiness. Over time the greater effect will pass, but I have never been the same person. Today I continue the treatment with microdosing that is being fundamental to my psychological and emotional wellbeing.
A really powerful experience that I wouldn’t want to miss for the world. I wasn’t sure what to expect and to be honest I had my doubts but as soon as I got there I felt like being part of a something special. The host’s were welcoming and answered all my questions which quickly took away my fears because they were so professional and knowledgeable on the subject. This experience really helped and changed me, even now almost a year later I can still feel the positive effect it had on me.
