  • Lamas, Peru

TierraMitica is a healing and research center in the beautiful unspoiled Fasaquihui gorge in the spectacular high jungle of Peru, 40 km by road from the city of Tarapoto. A paradise of 80 hectares (197 acres) of lush jungle with river and waterfalls, full of wild life, monkeys, blue morpho butterflies, hummingbirds and much more… It is the permanent home of the transformative Mythic Voyage Ayahuasca Workshop and the Embrace the Medicine Ayahuasca Retreats.

It is also an art center and the home of a community fully dedicated and trained to our healing work.

Our mission is to create a place where people are helped to transcend their personal wounds as well as our collective wound, to restore their trust in the wisdom of the world we live in, in themselves and in humanity, to provide a haven that offers everything we would like our own sisters, brothers, mothers and ourselves to find in order to absorb the gifts and healing insights of the medicine and the ceremonies. A place to inspire and restore the trust needed for every one of us to dare to rediscover and deepen our ability to embrace every moment, our power to create for ourselves amazing, fulfilling, creative and happy lives of choice and open heart.

We want for any one of our guests, in groups of a maximum of 12 people, to find here a place where they feel at home, safe, taken care of, supported and guided, so they can go as deep as they need in their healing process.

We work with a team of Shipibo Maestros and Maestras, that we have chosen not only for their experience and their power -that you will both feel strongly during the ceremonies- but also for their passion for their sacred work, their dedication to the healing, and their genuine attention and love for each single participant. We do ceremonies outdoors, since, due to the altitude, we have the luxury of being free of mosquitoes, under the moon and the stars on a wooden floor, were the icaros, the traditional healing chants of the Shipibos, are accompanied by the symphony of the river and the jungle.

We provide modern accommodations, with hot showers, comfortable beds, clear spring water and gourmet Ayahuasca diet food prepared with love.

We offer three different programs, the Mythic Voyage, the Embrace the Medicine 6 days, the Embrace the Medicine 11 days.

The Mythic Voyage:
It is a unique process, a fully guided, intensive and holistic workshop of 11 days for life transformation, and the only workshop of its kind in the world actually GUARANTEEING results, the success in fulfilling the guarantee judged by the participants themselves.

It is not focused on the Ayahuasca but on the end result: total transformation on every layer of human functionality and on every aspect of life for a beautiful, happy, inspired, creative life full of enthusiasm, ideas and love. It is holistic because it deals with seven layers of human functionality: our emotional, physical, cognitive or intellectual, philosophical, energetic, sensory and symbolic bodies to achieve a common internal direction and true, long lasting change. During the Mythic Voyage, intuitive, simple enough for a five-year-old to understand answers to existential questions like what exactly is the soul, what is enlightenment, who are we as human beings, why do we all feel bad about ourselves, why the universe exists and for what purpose, what is the reason why humans exist, and many more, are found that actually make sense.

During the 11 days, Ayahuasca ceremonies are not done for the experience but in order to find specific, practical answers to problems that make us suffer and blocks that stop us from living life to our full potential. We teach and guide people on how to effectively navigate and interpret the ceremony experience, diving deeper and deeper into our internal world, our subconscious, our belief systems that determine only who we are and how we perceive everything around us but also everything that we feel and think, our senses, our health as well as our memories. In contrast with retreats, the number of ceremonies is not fixed but varies according to the flow of the workshop and can vary from as many as six to as few as two.

Embrace the Medicine:
This program is an Ayahuasca retreat with two different formulas of 6 or 11 days, with respectively 3 and 6 Ayahuasca ceremonies.

The Ayahuasca communicates through the symbolic language, so we offer sharing circles and consultations to prepare you for ceremony and to decipher together the messages, the visions and the insights lived during the night. This way you can gain clarity on what has happened and what your next step should be. The Ayahuasca is a navigable experience, so if you wish, we can teach you how to collaborate with the Ayahuasca instead of being a simple observer, how to guide your own journey through a very precise and focused intention to go where is needed to find the answers and insights that will make a real difference in your life. The more you know how to navigate it, the more you will feel safe and free to explore, the more conscious you are of your experience and the clearer the results will be.

The guide of the retreat and one or two trained assistants are always presents in ceremonies, to support and assist the participants in anything they may need, as much for practical matters than in their personal process.

We have certified yoga instructors in Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, who can give classes every day during the Embrace the Medicine, for beginners or for advanced, an art studio available for you to create, an art gallery dedicated to the myth of the Grandmother Ayahuasca with 19 murals painted by visionary artists from all over the world, a natural pool by the waterfall, and plenty of land to explore and enjoy the wildlife, everything for our guests to feel inspired, nurtured, to feel their thirst for everything beautiful life has to offer.

Magic does exist!

The owner of Tierra Mitica is an overbearing bully who displays not slightest sign of respect, kindness, empathy or compassion for anyone.
He presents a series of ideas but permits no discussion of those ideas at any time.
He claims to be a happy man but quickly becomes agitated and aggressive if anyone does not agree with him or attempts to point out the deficiencies in what he says.
Anyone attending this course would be well advised to read about Narcissistic Personality Disorders and cult formation before they attend. Better yet… stay away.

I attended the August 1st, 2017 Mythic Voyage at Tierra Mitica. It’s taken me many months to put all the pieces together of what happened to me there. If you plan on doing this Ayahuasca retreat, there are a few things you should know…

1. If you choose to not drink the medicine, they do not give you the option of staying at the retreat to ground. They will make you leave and drop you off at a hotel in town, even if you are still under the influence from the medicine. I wanted to stay at the center (because I paid for a safe space when I am not in my right mind) and they said if I do not participate in the ways everyone else were, then I could not stay. So they dropped me off at a hotel, still under the influence. I later found out from someone who was also a participant at the retreat that they didn’t even do another ceremony after I left! So they made me leave for not wanting to drink Ayahuasca again, and then they didn’t even do it again. There was another girl who also quit a day after me, and they did not make her leave the retreat. Their reasoning for making me leave was because they said I was hitting on one of the Tierra Miticans there that was married. I believe they are referring to this time I touched his arm, but again, I was not in my right mind and forgot he was married. The other reasoning was because I wrote a note in a girl’s journal. This I recognize was not right, but is minimal and not a reason to kick someone out of a retreat. That is the point of doing retreats like this, to learn and grow as human beings. When you are under the influence of the world’s strongest psychotropic plant, some unconscious things will arise. They claim to be able to help people with all kinds of mental disorders, and kicking someone out for writing a positive note in someone’s journal is should not be grounds for kicking them out. If they can’t handle that, then I would definitely NOT trust them if you have some serious mental health issue.

2. Mikis, the main shaman does not drink Ayahuasca with you and is not even present during the ceremony. You are with his assistants who are like shamans in training. Most of them have only been living there for 1-4 years.

3. They also believe that being vegetarian/vegan is a form of mental illness, and that it means that you have a belief system that ‘’god did not create everything perfectly as it should be’’.

4. If you are a man with long hair, they will most likely make you cut it off as a form of symbolism for the new ‘you’.

5. Be careful if you are a feminist or a woman who has been physically/verbally abused. Mikis Hassan, the main shaman and owner of the retreat center does not refer to women as ‘women’ or ‘ladies’ but as ‘pussy’. He says his methods are controversial and that is part of his process to break down your belief systems. However, he does not refer to men as ‘dicks’ or ‘cocks’. When I brought this up to him, he said because he didn’t think the work ‘dick’ or ‘cock’ is as cute or endearing as the term ‘pussy’. Which is his own personal beliefs system, that I feel does not help with women who have been degraded or dealing with oppression issues.

6. I saw Mikis physically slap his assistant in the face multiple times with what looked like all his strength because he kept making grammatical errors on the white board, because English is not his first language.

7. Mikis has a temper. He yelled at me when I put a blanket on myself when I was cold, because it disrupted his train of thought. He blamed it on his Autism, but then goes on to teach people to take responsibility for themselves. He got extremely mad at someone who was complaining about their back hurting from sitting in the chair for too long because they were in a car accident. So the car accident is not a good enough excuse, but his autism can be excused.

8. Mikis is a hypocrite. He says that most people’s unhappiness stems from Paradox in the world. However, he is full of them himself. He has a lot of health issues, and he is teaching us that we can do anything we want, and heal anything we want. So I asked him why he has not healed his health condition. He said, that it was not his priority and that the retreats and the work they do helping people is his priority. BUT, he cannot help anyone when he is dead, so that is a huge paradox.

9. He got most of the women in the group to admit they were in love with their fathers aka the Electra Complex. I felt like he was just breaking people down, picking at their insecurities, and implanted false ideas/ problems.

10. Another big red flag for me, was when he was being so mean and rude to this one guy for his mistakes, and said that someone needed to spit on him. Then he looked at me and asked me to spit on him!!! I said, ‘’No’’, then he said , ‘’Why not?’’, then I said, ‘’Because he is deserving of love and respect like everyone else, despite his mistakes’’. Then he asked this other girl to spit on him, and she actually did it!! I believe there are much more healthier ways to help people than that.

11. There is a lot more of my personal experience that happened after I left the retreat that I will not get into. But my mother contacted him, and he actually told her CONFIDENTIAL information that I shared our group therapy. He is not an actual licensed therapist, so there is a loophole with this because there is technically no law he is breaking.

Please beware of this retreat center. While I think they have some good messages they teach, their methods and approach is very unhealthy and damaging. They put you on the spot, use peer pressure, and try and make you feel like an idiot if you use any form of critical thinking or disagree with their teachings. I believe they take advantage of people in their most vulnerable state and use brainwashing, hypnotic, and cult forming techniques. Please feel free to contact me if you want to know my story or have any other questions at theroadwithin@gmail.com.

Tierra Mitica is the most amazing and delicious place I have even been to.
I have never felt more at HOME anywhere on Earth. The love, the creativity and the family that this magical group of people are so dedicated to sharing and growing is truly inspiring.
The research and work that happens here is truly revolutionary. After years of searching for the most effective and holistic ways to grow myself, understand humanity and truly create a more loving connected world I have finally found people with the clarity and dedication to bring the vision to life.
The team here are even more effective (!) when they are working without the potion. They have truly discovered how to embody and bring the energy of the medicine and step through the door into the grandmother’s arms and not just peer through the window like so many other centers are only able to do.
If you are considering paying a visit to Tierra Mitica, do yourself a favor and just GO! It will be the best investment you ever made in your life and I am willing to make that a promise.
I wish I could give you guys 6 stars!

My review is an email that I sent to the wonderull Tierra Miticans 6 months after my journeys. Love love loved everything about this place.

Hi Sara!

I have been feeling a real strong passion to write to you and THANK YOU and the team from the bottom of my heart for helping give me my life back. I feel so FREE and so full of love and as each day passes I feel a greater and greater light bursting out of me. I feel unable to control these feelings of bliss sometimes! I wasn’t sure if things would go back to the way they were before Ayahuasca but my love and enthusiasm for life just keeps growing and I feel so fucking grateful and blessed! I know that you guys must help 100’s of people but I just needed to tell you my story. From the man that arrived at Tierra Mitica to the man I am now, there is simply no comparison.

From the week I arrived back in Scotland life has been tougher than I ever could have imagined. I have had a number of truly awful things happen in the last 5 months and things I never expected to deal with in a lifetime have become a constant reality for me. The things is…. despite this extreme pain and chaos I have never been happier!!! I have honestly never been happier! Through this attitude new amazing things are now starting to happen!!

My constant state is happiness and although there are frequent times of extreme challenge, sadness and often tears I have peace and love in my heart for 95% of the time. My heart is an explosion of love. I feel a real peace and an unshakeable happiness that can never be removed. I am so thankful for this and feel blessed to be where I am. This is without a doubt down to the love and guidance I received in Tierra Mitica. I never totally understood “choice” when I was at the retreat but now I completely understand (slow learner! J) so no matter how hard things have been recently I have always chosen happiness!!!! IT IS A CHOICE!

Weird Shit… I remember when you first spoke to me during a ceremony when I was in a journey I got such a fright because your energy was so huge, the only way I can describe it was like a lioness speaking in my ear! The energy I felt was unmistakable and was the same every time you would offer me guidance during my six journeys. Last month I had a really clear dream and this exact energy appeared and offered me guidance!! It was extremely magical and the advice it gave me rang completely true! It told me “sometimes you settle, challenge yourself”. WOW, you have no idea the chord that struck with me and it was something that I wasn’t doing in a certain very important area of my life! As a result of this I’m am now making the changes needed and doing the things that I was putting off! It will be tough but I know what needs to be done.

Just one last thing to share!!! When I left you crazy jungle people I decided to write something that I would say everyday in order to remind myself what I learned so not to go back to old ways. I haven’t shared it with anyone but I would love to share with you.
May I always listen and be faithful to the dreams of my little boy

May I never stray from these dreams in spite of how impossible they may seem

May I always be driven by the passions in my heart

With great determination, love and poise, careful to never seek the fruit of my actions

May I always be guided by peace

And never blinded by fear

Living a life of greatness, filled with love, happiness and choice

Lots of Love, Light and Cosmo Hugs! David

Hi everyone!
My name is Lennard and I have completed one Mythic Voyage and was kicked out of the other one just last year after seven days. It is such a fun time reading through all the other reviews on here!

Regardless of what anyone says Tierra Mitica is hands-down one of the best ayuawasca centers in the world and know of only two people (including Mikis Hasson, who is the founder of Tierra Mitica) who can bring people to this level of depth, clarity, and healing in the entire world.

There was a moment during my first Mythic Voyage where I completely and utterly understood that I was in the presence of one of the most powerful people on this planet with Mikis who guides the Mythic Voyages. The love, the care, the ferocity and unbending intention, the environment, the beauty, and the attention to every detaiI. I LOVE this place.

In some of the reviews here people proclaim to know what they are getting into before doing a Mythic Voyage, and that shows that they don’t know what they are getting into. Doing a Mythic Voyage is a life-changer, and not in the sense of “Oh yes, my visit to the Dominican Republic was life-changing…”. What you gain in a mythic voyage is more valuable then anything that I have ever received anywhere or could have fathomed before getting there, and can hardly be compared to any kind of regular spiritual retreat. Mikis Hasson goes beyond of what many people consider humanly possible for each participant, and yes at times you might want to get out of that consultation room when things get challenging, and it always the better choice to trust. I can attest that, as i lost trust and was kicked out, fully deservedly as I was interrupting doing session.

The gifts that I received at Tierra Mitica are beyond valuable, and insights, clarity and more gifts continue to unfold in the aftermath. Some years ago having been completely lost, having given up responsibility over my life, now I am kicking it and living it up, beautiful friends, amazing house by lake, epic work, starting a dream of a business and having clear direction and vision based on those choices that serve MY happiness! HAHA!

Big gratitude to everyone at Tierra Mitica. Highly recommend the center, and best is to trust right from the first email on and listen deeply.

Tierra Mitica is truly an amazing place that will offer you an even more amazing experience.
The entire crew goes well beyond the ordinary means of providing a caring and safe environment for your journey. I have never felt so supported and loved by a group of people before my stay at Tierra Mitica.
I attend the mythic voyage which was first rate.
It is hard to encapsulate into words this experience. Before the voyage I had intentions to clear negative patterns and find inspiration
For my life. I gained so much more that I could have imagined. The experience was more like an education…. you will learn fully of yourself, your actions, your past experience, why you do things, why people operate as they do and how to navigate your life with clarity and purpose. This workshop gives you tools and a support system to help you continue to implement the work into your life upon leaving Tierra Mitica. The people involved (the hosting crew and participants in the workshop) will become your family. The experience is intimate and wholesome. Everything done at Tierra Mitica is robust with love. The hosting cares for you every step and strives to provide the best possible experience.
During the ceremonies I felt extremely safe and comfortable. The crew will be there to support you the entire time and after the ceremony as well. They spend time preparing you for the ceremony so you feel that there is a strong intention and purpose behind each ceremony. The shamans are incredible—authentic Shipibo Maestros and Maestras. They are powerful and you can feel them connecting with you throughout the ceremony. At any point if you are feeling unsure or uncomfortable in the ceremony a Tierra Mitican crew member will be right by your side offering guidance and support. The ceremonies are held outside under the stars which makes the experience even more magical.
The food is incredible. I find it impossible that you will be getting a better meal at any other Ayahuasca retreat center in the world. The accommodations are comfortable. The surround jungle is lush and beautiful. The facilities are stunning and fully equipped for creating art and music.
Over all the experience is first rate. There is nothing that I could have wished different or better. This place is magical! Truly magical!!!

This was exactly what I had been searching for my whole life!
I came to Peru completely stuck in the rut of a lifetime with no idea on what to do or how to move to the next anything in my life. I was scared to death of the Ayahuasca but desperate and hopeful enough that something would happen and change my life. And it did!

From the moment I arrived I felt completely safe and all the staff there took better care for me than I think I have ever experienced. It was a little overwhelming at first but they really helped calm my fears for my first Ayahuasca experience. Everything was so proffesional and the ceremonies were more than magic and spectacular and even though they were strong I felt everything was going to be ok and that I was safe. I will be hearing those icaros in my head for sometime.

After trawling through many websites and watching all of their reviews on youtube I decided that if it was real then I wanted whatever these people in the videos had found. I I do also now understand the bad reviews I read too becuase the workshop was very confrontational and intense at times, nothing like what I am used to back home! This is what I needed though to see the truth about my life and how I was living. Everything was necessary and I am grateful to Mikis for pushing me hard becasue I never would have gone to those places by myself. Probably ever.

With everything I have learned, I understand that I still have work to do once I get home from Peru but now I am excited about it! Thank you so much to everyone in TierraMitica. Your smiling faces are something I will never forget. You have given me new eyes to see with and you will forever be in my heart.

I recently did a Mythic Voyage in TierraMitica and what they do there is beyond anything else. I did Ayahuasca before but I felt like the medicine did not like me, because I did not have the amazing experiences I read about on forums. During the Mythic Voyage I understood that she was talking to me, I just had not been listening, out of fear of what I would hear. More than that, during the consultations I felt that even stronger, I was astonished about everything that was coming out of me. I went there for the Ayahuasca, but once I arrived, I understood that this workshop was so much more, Ayahuasca was just one way to deconstruct my former belief system, one I had not consciously chosen, to reconstruct it to one that actually serves me and makes me love myself and everyone around me. It was a hell of a ride, and at the same time the closest to divinity I had ever gotten. All I have left to say is a big thank you to the people there and Mikis in particular for giving me all his love, however tough sometimes, and a big thank you to me for taking the leap and choosing to go there.

My visit began lovely. The grounds are beautiful and all of the individuals that worked there were amazing. If you raised your voice after hours or even during the day while Mikis the “shaman” was sleeping you were scolded. After ceremony with the beautiful shamanas you went back to the main house for herbal tea to settle your stomach. How nice right!?!?!?! Until the next day when you were “offered” the opportunity to discuss your experience with Mikis…who would proceed to either build you up in front of the group or tear you completely to shreds. Now. In my eyes, if the grandmother chooses to rip you to shreds that is her and your choice. That is what you sign up for with ayahuasca. The shaman however should not be dissecting your experience the next day with his inputs under the rouse of him being an expert. Before you decide on this retreat be aware that you will not only be doing aya but you will be subjected to the teachings of the Greek shaman that isn’t physically able to take the medicine with you. Not only will you be subjected to his teachings but you will be in a location where you have no option to leave until the driver requested from the crew can take you there. I’m sure there have been people that had great experiences here, but of the 5 people in my retreat, one refused the third ceremony, one stayed in Peru at another location bc it was more loving, one wrote terrible reviews, one refuses to speak about her experience to anyone, and I now after many months have rectified it in my head. Don’t go here. Just don’t. Go somewhere else.

It has been I while since I did my embrace the medicine retreat at Tierra Mitica however the experience is still fresh in my mind and if there is one word I would use to describe that experience, it is AMAZING!
I had fairly high hopes going there as 2 of my close friends had taken part in the mythic voyage and had only great things to say about the place and the experience.
This being said, within 1 hour of being there my hopes were already meet only to be blown away soon after.
Tierra Mitica as a place is absolutely beautiful, it is secluded, peaceful and almost feels like you are on a different planet by the fact that you are so far removed from the rest of society.
The people there are equally great, being super helpful and supportive and they all have a really positive, driven energy about them which makes you feel that you are in the safest of hands which adds to the experience.
Although I only have positive things to say about Tierra Mitica and my experience there, it is by no means an easy thing to do and is not always a pleasant time as you will almost defintely find yourself being challenged in ways like never before during the ceremonies. However I found that these points during the retreat along with the support from the helpers were the most beneficial and I can honestly say that I left the retreat having learnt a lot but am now also much more aware of the many things there are to still learn.

Hello My name is Aaron McMinn I just completed the Mythic Voyage May/June 2015. I was contacted by a friend of mine just after he completed the Mythic Voyage. His experience and words spoke to me at a time when i really needed something exactly like this.
This is what he wrote me:

“I cannot describe the transformation that I experienced here.. there is no price i could have put on it. If you are ready to take back your life just choose this and make it happen.. You are worth it ..

I was close to ending my life.. now finally after 34 years I have full control of my life, I have direction, vision, I can dream. I am truly happy. and it only took 10 days … *was like 20 years of therapy”

So I quit my job and went to the next Mythic Voyage and id have to say it was the best decision i’ve ever made. Before i came i had no direction and a lot of unanswered questions about my life.

Thanks to Mikis I now have direction and am well equipped with the direction for any situation i find myself in. Mikis can see things in you that you can not see in yourself and this is a great gift because if you cant see what wrong then you’ll never know where to start. This workshop could be done without the ayahuasca and be just as effective. If you truly want change in your life I guarantee you this will work for you.

The staff, accommodations and Shipibo shamans at tierra Mitica are world class, full of love and every need is takin care of. couldnt ask for a better landscape to do the work in. Thank you So So Much <3

hi Aaron!

August 10, 2015

I attended the April 2015 Mythic Voyage, and it was the absolute best thing that I could have ever done for my life. Let me start by saying that since I had attended an entirely different retreat the year prior, I thought I had an idea as to what I was getting into. I was wrong and so very happy that I was.

For many years I had been feeling numb and indifferent. I hated it because I could recall a time in my life when I felt love, joy and connectedness with the world around me. I heard and read about ayahuasca and determined that it was a means to get back to where I essentially left off in my life. So anyway, the ceremonies I attended in ?14 at the other retreat gave me a glimpse at what was possible. But I had no idea or instruction on how to achieve or maintain those possibilities. Basically it was your typical retreat with a few ceremonies and a whole lot of down time and reflection. Don?t get me wrong, I still think it?s a great place and would never recommend to anyone to not go there. But after attending the Mythic Voyage at Tierra Mitica, I could not imagine EVER going anywhere else.

The biggest reason I chose Tierra Mitica and the Mythic Voyage this time around was not just because I was drawn more to it than the others. But because they offered the ?intensive? workshop which I felt would keep me busy and focused on what I needed to do for myself. That is exactly what happened but also was so much more than I could have ever imagined.

I could go on about the great food that they serve, the above standard accommodations they provide, the beautiful setting it?s in and even the most awesome loving and supportive people that live there. But I want to get to the meat of my experience to share.

When they say that they have had people quit, they are not kidding. While I was there, we had 1 person quit and leave the retreat entirely, another quit the workshop but stayed at Tierra Mitica, and even I almost quit the workshop on its final night. What happened this night is something that no matter the words I use, or how hard I try, I can not possibly manage to truly convey it to anyone. The closest I can manage to come to describing what happened to me, was ?magic?. And if it weren?t for my fellow Argonauts (or family as I now refer to them) being there to witness and share in the experience. I would have a hard time believing that I didn?t somehow make it up. All the days leading up to this night, I thought I knew I was making the progress I was needing to. Boy I was right, but at the same time SOOO WRONG! This night Mikis made or helped to make something happen that woke me up and got me to break and emerge from the shell that I?ve been in for so long. Without trying to explain what happened leading up to it, I will just say that in that moment, I truly felt everything that I hadn?t been able to feel for so long. I felt pain, sorrow, loss, joy, happiness and most importantly to me? For what may have been the first time in my life, love. Love from Mikis and my ?Family?, and my love for them.

I now appreciate and love everyone around me. My relationships with everyone in my life are so much healthier and stronger. I have direction in my life which I never did before. I know what I need to do to gain and maintain my happiness. I would not have any of this if it weren?t for Mikis, the Tierra Miticans and the rest of my family that attended the April 2015 Mythic Voyage.
If you are looking to just experience ayahuasca, please do not attend the Mythic Voyage. I have not attended their Mythic Journey but believe that it may be more for you if that?s the case. If you are looking for needed change in your life and have had a hard time achieving it. If you have the desire, determination and even strength to live the best life that you possibly can?. Please, by all means, attend the Mythic Voyage. If you trust and do not quit. It will be the best thing you ever did for yourself and those around you.

Wow where do u start? I was desperate to be happy and excited about life again. I stated going to therapy and made many changes in my life, but it just wasn’t enough. I just knew something wasn’t right and that I was still depressed no matter how good things turned out for me. After much research, I came to Tierra Mitica to attend the Mythic Voyage as my final hope to make a big change. Words cannot describe my gratitude for the Tierra Miticans for creating the most loving, safe, and supportive space for us to go as we could possibly go. It was without a doubt the most challenging and intense experience beyond what I had expected, but it was all worth it. I was worth it. This is a fully guided workshop. The only way to make it through, is to stick to the commitment to your happiness and TRUST. Do it for YOU! You are worth it. It is now time for me to do the work and change my life, and things are only going up from here, and now I know I’m not alone. I have the support of my fellow Tierra Miticans walking the path with me. Thank you grandmother for bringing me to Tierra Mitica. I love you guys so much!

So I quit my job and went to the next Mythic Voyage and id have to say it was the best decision i’ve ever made. Before i came i had no direction and a lot of unanswered questions about my life.

Thanks to Mikis I now have direction and am well equipped with the direction for any situation i find myself in. Mikis can see things in you that you can not see in yourself and this is a great gift because if you cant see what wrong then you’ll never know where to start. This workshop could be done without the ayahuasca and be just as effective. If you truly want change in your life I guarantee you this will work for you.

The staff, accommodations and Shipibo shamans at tierra Mitica are world class, full of love and every need is takin care of. couldnt ask for a better landscape to do the work in. Thank you So So Much <3

WOW! Where do I start? I was desperate to be happy and be excited about life again. I went to psychotherapy and made many changes in my life, but it just didn’t seem enough. What do I do? I came to Tierra Mitica as my final hope to find direction to my happiness. Words cannot describe my gratitude for the Tierra Miticans for creating the most loving, supportive, and safe space for all of us to go as deep as we could possibly go.It was without a doubt the most challenging and intense experience beyond what I had expected, but it was worth it. I was worth it. This is a fully guided workshop. To make it through, stick to the commitment to your happiness and TRUST! Do it for YOU. You are worth it. It is now time for me to do the work and change my life, but I am not alone. I have my family of Argonauts and TierraMiticans walking along side me on the path of happiness. Thank you grandmother for bringing me to Tierra Mitica. I love you guys so much!

hello

my name is Simon Therrien and I completed the mythic voyage of may 2015 and I can say it was the best experience of my life .. 🙂 I arrived at Tierra Mitica and was welcomed with the best hospitality you can imagine smiles and happy people.. clean great food… all the comfort of home in the middle of this jungle paradise … the workshop itself is really hard… you get challenged by Mikkis the super awesome owner and best philosopher of the world with all your problems and contradicting beliefs… I was a dilusional person and unhappy going through life without sense of direction and opening up in front of 12 people was at time really painfull… the ayahuasca sessions were amazing … the shipibo shamans and Icaros ladies were phenomenal.. increasing the experience 1000% most loving people I have met 🙂 … now that I have finished the mithic voyage .. for the first time of my life I know what it means to be truly happy and doing things that makes myself proud… I also started working here … hoping to see you here in Tierra Mitica where I will gladly take care of all of you 🙂 much love

sincerely

I attended the April 2015 Mythic Voyage, and it was the absolute best thing that I could have ever done for my life. Let me start by saying that since I had attended an entirely different retreat the year prior, I thought I had an idea as to what I was getting into. I was wrong and so very happy that I was.
For many years I had been feeling numb and indifferent. I hated it because I could recall a time in my life when I felt love, joy and connectedness with the world around me. I heard and read about ayahuasca and determined that it was a means to get back to where I essentially left off in my life. So anyway, the ceremonies I attended in ?14 at the other retreat gave me a glimpse at what was possible. But I had no idea or instruction on how to achieve or maintain those possibilities. Basically it was your typical retreat with a few ceremonies and a whole lot of down time and reflection. Don?t get me wrong, I still think it?s a great place and would never recommend to anyone to not go there. But after attending the Mythic Voyage at Tierra Mitica, I could not imagine EVER going anywhere else.
The biggest reason I chose Tierra Mitica and the Mythic Voyage this time around was not just because I was drawn more to it than the others. But because they offered the ?intensive? workshop which I felt would keep me busy and focused on what I needed to do for myself. That is exactly what happened but also was so much more than I could have ever imagined.
I could go on about the great food that they serve, the above standard accommodations they provide, the beautiful setting it?s in and even the most awesome loving and supportive people that live there. But I want to get to the meat of my experience to share.
When they say that they have had people quit, they are not kidding. While I was there, we had 1 person quit and leave the retreat entirely, another quit the workshop but stayed at Tierra Mitica, and even I almost quit the workshop on its final night. What happened this night is something that no matter the words I use, or how hard I try, I can not possibly manage to truly convey it to anyone. The closest I can manage to come to describing what happened to me, was ?magic?. And if it weren?t for my fellow Argonauts (or family as I now refer to them) being there to witness and share in the experience. I would have a hard time believing that I didn?t somehow make it up. All the days leading up to this night, I thought I knew I was making the progress I was needing to. Boy I was right, but at the same time SOOO WRONG! This night Mikis made or helped to make something happen that woke me up and got me to break and emerge from the shell that I?ve been in for so long. Without trying to explain what happened leading up to it, I will just say that in that moment, I truly felt everything that I hadn?t been able to feel for so long. I felt pain, sorrow, loss, joy, happiness and most importantly to me? For what may have been the first time in my life, love. Love from Mikis and my ?Family?, and my love for them.
I now appreciate and love everyone around me. My relationships with everyone in my life are so much healthier and stronger. I have direction in my life which I never did before. I know what I need to do to gain and maintain my happiness. I would not have any of this if it weren?t for Mikis, the Tierra Miticans and the rest of my family that attended the April 2015 Mythic Voyage.
If you are looking to just experience ayahuasca, please do not attend the Mythic Voyage. I have not attended their Mythic Journey but believe that it may be more for you if that?s the case. If you are looking for needed change in your life and have had a hard time achieving it. If you have the desire, determination and even strength to live the best life that you possibly can?. Please, by all means, attend the Mythic Voyage. If you trust and do not quit. It will be the best thing you ever did for yourself and those around you.

Attending the mythic voyage was the single most important thing I have done in my life to date,and I have done a lot of things including oh oh oh so many personal growth seminars ranging from mind power, to business, to happiness, to enlightenment. I had always wanted to attend an ayahuasca ceremony and somehow I ended up at Tierra Mitica ( the amount of gratefulness that I have for somehow choosing this place is huge). I went assuming I would learn a couple things about myself, connect more with nature/earth, etc. What happened was a total metamorphosis of my entire being and psyche into this beaming, relaxed, trusting, ILLUMINATED human being. This mythic voyage is SO SO SO SO much more than just the ayahuasca ceremonies themselves( which are so perfectly magical and the most authentic, supported, and beautiful as can be). I saw in myself and my fellow argonauts a mythic transformation take shape as the days progressed, one that I didn’t think could be real, especially in just 10 days. To call what Mikis does therapy, or psychological help is almost demeaning and would be like calling an exotic truffle a mushroom. What he does is somewhat in the magic realm but it is more effective than 20 years of therapy ( what someone who had that said). It effectively digs deep into your belief systems and does a thorough shake up and you could say spring cleaning of what you thought that you thought. The outcome: happiness, happiness, happiness. The funny thing was that I thought I was the most happy person I knew before I got there. Let me just tell you, THERES MORE!
The intermingling of the ceremonies with the most in depth work into the psyche has an outcome that would BLOW AWAY any professional in the field of personal transformation.
I am sending every important person in my life to Tierra Mitica because I know that this will change their entire lives forever and I can’t wait to be around more citizens of the world that are on this train.
If you have even the tiniest inkling, like I initially did, to take the plunge don’t even consider any other place than here. If money is a consideration, I felt I had gotten value the very first day. If you are a sucker for luxury look no further- the service here is not only “with a smile” but with more love than your mom gives you. The food and somehow ever changing menu also must be part of the magic because there is NO WAY that I can be that far in the Peruvian jungle and have 2 of the best cakes I have ever eaten for dessert in one night ( our last night party night). The beds are comfy and made daily, my dirty shoes are washed and sparkly, I am not allowed to bring my dishes anywhere- but even more important I am part of a new family.
I know I just wrote a lot but these words don’t even come close to what happens in that mythic place.

I have just completed the Dec Mythic Voyage and am feeling amazing. It was one of the best retreats I have done and am really happy with what has come out of it. I have always been lost for direction but now know where I want to head and have confidence in the fact I can get there, it has also helped me feel a deeper connection with my family which is something I will always appreciate. The location is amazing! It is a beautiful spot surrounded by amazon.

The accommodation is really nice, comfy rooms, beds, hot showers and amazing food. The staff were all really beautiful people and they looked after us really well and supported us on our journey whenever they could. I was hesitant about trying Ayahuasca for the first time but here they created a safe nurturing place and I always felt well looked after. On my last ceremony I had a fairly rough night with everything that was coming up. Mickis laid with me most of the ceremony making sure I was ok and pulling me through the ceremony with amazing outcomes, for this I will always be appreciative.

If you are wanting to change your life, experience ayahuasca and still enjoy the comforts of the western world, this is the place for you. The love is abundant and the work is hard, but good.

April 15, 2015

Wow, how can I sum up my Mythic Voyage in words?

I came to TierraMitica for the April Mythic Voyage because I was completely lost in life, I had recently returned home from a much needed 12-month career break after having a failed marriage, loss in motivation at work, loss of my sense of purpose and generally not enjoying life. My first ayahuasca experience was actually a 6 day, 3 ceremony Magic Journey at TierraMitica last September. In September I chose to do a Magic Journey instead of a Mythic Voyage as I wanted to familiarise myself with Ayahuasca and TierraMitica before committing myself to a workshop as heavy duty as the Mythic Voyage.

My experience in the September Magic Journey showed me that there were many aspects of my life that I wanted to improve. During the Magic Journey I was given the option of some free consultations with Mikis who gave me a flavour of the work that is done in the intensive Mythic Voyage workshop. As a result of these consultations I saw how much I wanted a true change in my life! From that moment I decided I no longer wanted to live a life void of inspiration and passion, I decided that I no longer wanted to have a heart closed to the possibility of falling in love, a heart closed to the ability to feel empathy and compassion. I decided that I no longer wanted depression and anxiety in my life. I saw how my life could be transformed through the work that is done during the Mythic Voyage. I returned for the April Mythic Voyage and had the most incredible life-changing experience!

The Mythic Voyage completely opened my heart! From day-one an environment of openness, care and trust is created and my heart immediately started to open. For the first time of my life I felt compassion and empathy for people as they were telling their life stories. Mikis is gifted with his ability to identify people’s emotional and psychological blockages and gives each person a perfectly crafted intention to take into each ceremony. The intention proved to be an incredibly powerful tool to direct my Ayahuasca trip to the places most guarded by my subconscious and oh lord did things happen! Although I was taken to some very dark and scary places, these were places I had to go in order to get the answers my heart was so desperately yearning. The first three ceremonies were by far the most challenging experiences of my life but they completely freed me from the fear, self doubt and feelings of inadequacy which have been major barriers to my happiness.

By the third ceremony I managed to reach the source of my suffering which was a repressed memory of a trauma from when I was four years old. Finding this memory answered so many questions I had and helped me make sense of so many aspects of my life that had been the source of confusion and sadness. My fourth and final ceremony was nothing short of pure bliss and a huge energetic shift took place. I started to feel passion for the first time in my adult life. This feeling of passion and inspiration permiated every cell of my body and made me feel alive again. The seed of an amazingly beautiful life has been planted. It’s truly amazing what Mikis can achieve in such a short period of time.

Absolutely everything at TierraMitica is done to perfection. They provide a gourmet Ayahuasca diet (they don’t believe in depriving their guests of amazing and abundant food when it is completely not necessary). The accommodation is super comfortable, proper mattresses, clean and well maintained facilities and hot showers. All of the TierraMiticans stop at NOTHING to make this the best experience for you as possible.

I have been so impressed with TerraMitica I have decided to stay and volunteer as I believe in the great work that is done here and I want to continue learning.

April 14, 2015

My experience at TierraMitica was incredible. The Mythic Voyage was an extremely intensive workshop that accomplished its goal of helping me to transform some core beliefs that were holding me back and sending me on my way with a more logical and effective framework of beliefs. If you just want an ayahuasca experience then go for the Magic Journey. It doesn’t involve the intense self-exploration required of the Mythic Voyage. Mikis Hasson is a remarkable human being. He will share his insights and will offer to help you in any way he can. He and all of the staff there lead by example – and it is inspiring. The Mythic Voyage program is one of a kind in the world and will open your eyes to your belief systems and how they impede your progress in life.

The staff has wellspring of experience that made my time there more meaningful than I would have thought possible. They were available to offer advice and encouragement whenever possible and everything from diet and rest to navigating my way through the ayahuasca experience made my stay there unforgettable. The food was excellent and the facility is located in lush rain forest at an altitude that made the temperatures comfortable everyday, rain or shine. They put tons of thought into catering to their guests and it shows. The ayahuasca experience takes place in a controlled environment and safety is a primary concern for all guests.

Their website breaks down the different experiences clearly. While I was there a few people who signed up for the Mythic Voyage clearly didn’t understand the scope of the workshop. This, for me, is a program of healing and fostering internal change. Those who enter with a closed mind: beware, you may not like what you see when truths are exposed. So make sure your intention is clear by reading the website and watching the youtube videos to understand what is being offered. Most of all, go there with an open mind because it will pay dividends as you start on a path toward a Mythic life.

Marvelous Job, TierraMitica!

Wow, what a journey! this was the most unbelievable experience during which I truly reconnected with myself. According to the standards of the society I had everything and yet I was not a happy person. I felt like some things were missing from my life. The Mythic voyage was a voyage deep within my soul, allowing me to see my fears, the beliefs holding me back. This is not an easy trip and it would not have been possible without the constant help (sometimes very confrontational) and lots of love offered by Mikis and all the Tierra Miticans. After hours of workshop during the day, which were pushing me to confront my deepest and well hidden beliefs, the ceremonies created the space to feel, to really feel and see my fears, deepest desires and beliefs. The magical icaros singed by the shamans transported me, encouraged me to search and never give up. So, did the loving help offered by the Tierra Miticans assisting us. If you feel stuck in your life, with no direction, then Tierra Mitica and the Mythic Voyage is the place for you. It is sooo much more than just an Ayahuasca experience. It will not be easy, but the experience and the results are magical and worth everything. As, for me…I know I will be back. I want more, I want to be happy and I will do everything it takes for this. Thank you, thank you, thank you Tierra Mitica family!

well it is hard to sum up what Tierra Mitica is all about without writing an entire book although i will do my best to cover the important things.

essentially i went because while i had the perfect picture, a wife, a beautiful 4 year old daughter, 2 nice cars, 2 successful restaurants, regular overseas holidays and so on, i knew that i was not waking up a happy man each day. there was something missing inside…..

i had heard plenty about ayahuasca and had done quite a bit of research, i was expecting it to miraculously change my life. looking for a quick fix. this was not taken lightly, i had struggled with happiness and fulfilment for a long time!

so i arrived at the jungle retreat (no mosquitoes!!) and was adequately impressed by the pristine environment and natural surrounds. there is a waterfall to swim under which was very cool. especially after 30 hours of transit coming from Australia. the food was really tasty and designed to work with the ayahuasca ceremonies to reduce the purging reactions that can be quite intense. we were all bunked up together (11 other participants across 3 rooms) and 5 hosts slash shared our space. there were humming birds, incredibly rare butterflies, monkeys, apparently sloths too although i didn’t personally see one. overall things were pretty cool.

so i thought!? once we started the mythic voyage i was shocked. this was no regular ayahuasca retreat, this was an intense, confrontational, explorative workshop with a focus on finding all of the things that hold us back in life, good or bad. while i was not expecting the process to be as intense (purely my own constructed expectation) i knew that something special was happening. i was confronted on so many levels by things i never even imagined were issues within myself. i was shocked at the stuff inside me!

once this all started coming out i was hooked, i could see that by exposing these issues there was hope to resolve them. i trusted (trusting Mikis the host is essential!!!) that there was no bad intentions by the exposure and knew that if i had the courage to see this through i would get the results i had come here for.

each day was an emotional roller coaster. high, low, flat, drained, exhausted and everything in between. the intense feelings could really test you some days. thoughts of quitting were not uncommon in the group. thankfully the support team of Tierra Mitica staff were great, especially Ferd, he is an absolute legend! he has a long history with spiritual practice and had some profound insights that kept me focussed. at the end of the day i was not there for a haircut, i wanted results and i had travelled across the world at reasonable expense and in need of life change. THANKS Ferd for all of your support, you are an incredible human being.

so i kept my focus and commitment to not quitting. over the 10 days some did quit and i can completely understand that people could not trust the process when being challenged and tested about things that they were not ready to deal with. it is essential that you want to make change even if it is areas that you were not aware had held you back. Mikis finds things in you that are not easily discoverable. there is a whole book required to explain the shit he does. trust him or don’t it is up to you but i will sure as hell testify that his techniques (although confronting) are miraculous.

the blending of psychology, spirituality, sharmans, shipibo, ayahuasca, logic and genuine trust & happiness are a powerful set of tools to make significant and long lasting changes in people. there is no point going into detail as i could not explain the processes but people that had long suffered depression and split personality disorders were getting results that were not making sense!? how was this guy seemingly curing incurable afflictions in people that had long suffered these issues. the group was made up of a diverse group of people that included psychologists, doctors, business people, drug addicts and so on. watching Mikis work on each one with his techniques was truly amazing (don’t forget confrontational).

my life has changed for ever. my belief system is now under my control and i decide on all things in my life. emotions, happiness, direction, hope and success are now 100% in my hands. i control my destiny and i can choose what ever the bloody hell i want to have in life.

my wife cannot believe the change and my daughter is responding so well to the change in me. my friends didn’t even know i had these feelings but now i am back they are a little rattled as to how i have changed so much. it is truly unbelievable. no matter how much i write, until you go there it will just be a story. go there and see for yourself. whatever reason you think stops you tell it to f..k off and do it. money, time off work, time away from family, what ever the bloody hell it is do not let it prevent you from obtaining true and lasting happiness. you deserve it!! everyone deserves it!!! GO GO GO!

lastly i just want to say that it is easy for people to write this work off. those who lack the commitment to look at themselves honestly and trust that change is achievable obviously need to blame others for their failure. i am well aware from my experiences there and by the negative reviews i have seen online. there is one thing consistent with them all, they all failed to complete the work and did not trust the process. see it through, trust the process and do not let your fears scare you out of seeing what holds you back. do all of this and you are on the way to enlightenment.

my personal email is liaandmark1@me.com if anyone would like to ask anything at all. any input i can have in helping people make positive changes would be my pleasure. good luck to you and do yourself a favour, get on board a mythic voyage asap.

sincerely Mark Wilson

Recently I had the opportunity to take part in the Mythic Voyage at Tierra Mitica. This voyage is, as they allude to on their webpage, not for the faint hearted. It is truly an intense, highly focused program designed to get the point(s) of your emotional blockages that hold you back from experiencing your true nature. If you are willing to open up to the deepest parts of your heart and expose those depths in an open environment, you will truly experience a breakthrough in the understanding of your true reality. This is possible with the combination of the intense workshop and the Aya ceremonies. Fear not, for you are truly able to accomplish this feat with determination and willingness. How beautiful is the notion of freedom of the soul? How wonderful is the idea of love with no conditions? Tierra Mitica is a one-of-a-kind retreat that deserves recognition and a chance to prove it’s worthiness in the area of Aya ceremonies and Synesthesia therapy!

To anyone who is considering going to Tierra Mitica I would like to share with you what happened to us.

We never actually made it to Tierra Mitica thanks to the owner of the place, whose immature and ignorant behavior during the registration process has proven to be most unprofessional and completely unacceptable.
No one with a healthy state of mind and sense of integrity should consider going there. We have lost 1700 USD to this cheating man who did nothing but preach down at us from his golden throne, completely in denial of his own limitation and darkness and projecting all kinds of false assumptions onto us, especially me, since I was doing most of the communicating. He sees himself as the victim and refuses to return our money, even though we cancelled in a timely manner in compliance with Tierra Mitica?s terms and conditions!

Due to a mistake or ?bug? on their website we had seemingly registered my mother for their Yin Yang Mythic Voyage which costs 2800 USD and is not for those who have not attended a regular Mythic Voyage before.
There are two drop down menus on the registration page (one for the Yin Yang Voyage, 2800USD and one for the Regular Voyage 1680USD) where you can pick the dates you want to attend. Obviously we opened the regular one and picked the end of November dates, as these were the only ones my mother could take time off work.
On April 27th it dawned on me that something can?t be right, because my mother?s dates in November were longer than those of the regular voyage I registered myself for in September.
Even though I had explained the problem several times insistently, even attached a screen shot of it, Mikis remains convinced that we intentionally registered my mom for Yin Yang and that we do not understand the difference between the two voyages and to this day that bug on his website has not been fixed, in other words the November dates have not been taken out from the regular mythic voyage drop down menu.

Below is the entire email conversation from beginning to end, that involved Lies (a very nice girl who does registration administration for the center), Mikis Hasson (the owner of Tierra Mitica), Marianne (my mother, for whom I was communicating, because her English is not very good) and Laura (my friend who had every intention to join us on this journey until Mikis came into the picture and worsened the situation with every new message he sent).

Sarah on April 1 2014
hello TM family, I am interested in coming to Tierra Mitica for a 3 Month Work Exchange – maybe this summer or fall. I had my first ayahuasca retreat experience in Peru in 2012 and in October 2013 I returned to the same place to spent two intensive months. I have been back home for three months now and it is becoming more and more clear that I must return once more. I have come across your website today which resonates with me very strongly. I understand one must register for a Mystic Voyage and after completion, if the community agrees, is able to stay on for a work exchange. I like that a lot 🙂
I am wondering what dates the Mystic Voyages usually start and how the work exchange program is structured?
many blessings and irake!:-)

Lies (Tierra Mitica administration) on April 3 2014
Dear Sarah, The Mythic Voyage is the most powerful, transformational and magical adventure of a lifetime. A very intense, holistic, ten day workshop like no other. Doing the mythic voyage is not a payment to become a volunteer, it should be an objective and destination on itself. The most important is that your intention, coming to Tierramitica, shouldn’t be to volunteer, but to be happy. The mythic voyage will give you new understanding and new vision for your life, what you will choose to do after is unpredictable and depends solely on what you find about yourself and what you want out of life.
You are welcome to a Mythic Voyage at any time if you choose. You can find the dates on the website under Contact > Registration. The April Mythic Voyage starts in a couple of days and the next one is in June. The cost is $1680, this includes the ceremonies with the best Shipibo shamans , eight to twelve hour work shops every day to help you understand, navigate and get the most out of the gifts and insights of Grandmother Ayahuasca, shared rooms, hot showers and excellent gourmet Ayahuasca diet foods made with love. If after the Mythic Voyage you choose to stay here like I did, then the community will vote on you. The main criteria is direction and intention and not work skills.
Love and Light,
Lies

Sarah on April 3 2014
thanks Lies, I love that! I’ll check the dates and will be in touch again once I figure out the best time for me to come – hopefully soon!:-)
until then and many blessings to you and all,
Sarah

Lies on April 4 2014
Hello Sarah! Welcome to the Mythic Voyage! I will be here in september to give you a very warm welcome 🙂 Just remember to send the 50% deposit in time, to fully ensure your spot. Also send us your flight details once you have them, so we can organise to come and pick you up from the airport. We advise to come one or two days in advance if that is possible, to get rid of the jetlag and settle in before we start off. A passport scan or a recent picture is very useful as well for us to be able to recognize you at the airport. Excellent choice, you are in for the adventure of a lifetime 🙂
Love and Light,
Lies

Sarah on April 10 2014
Hi Lies,
thank you! I will send the deposit over soon, definitely before the end of this month. I am waiting to find out if my mom can take time off in November, so that I can register her and send both deposits at the same time 🙂
I am cheap flight hunting now and will send u my picture together with the flight details as soon as I have them.
I look forward to meeting you!
Much Love&Light from Switzerland,
Sarah

Sarah on April 14 2014
Hello Lies,
I just made an online payment of 1700 USD to Tierra Mitica. that should cover my deposit, my mom’s deposit (840 USD each) and the transfer fee.
Please let me know when u receive it.
Thanks and see you in a few months!:-)

Lies on April 15 2014
Hello Sarah!
Thank you for the deposit, I will confirm once we receive it. My apologies for the late reply, we are in the middle of the Mythic Voyage right now, and all of our focus goes out to our people, just like it will for you and your mum in a couple of months 🙂
Looking forward to having you here!
Love and light,
Lies

Sarah on April 15 2014
No worries! enjoy 🙂

Sarah on April 27 2014
Hi Lies,
just a quick question about the November Mythic Voyage. it says on the website that it starts on Nov29 and ends Dec13. that would be 15 days, is that correct?
thanks and many blessings,
Sarah

Lies on April 28 2014
Hello Sarah,
This is not the Mythic Voyage, but the Yin and Yang Mythic Voyage, only for people who have already taken a Mythic Voyage before, you could call it level 2, locked until level 1 of the game is beaten 🙂
I sent an email to your mother a couple of days ago, because she had registered to the Yin and Yang MV because of a bug on our website and I suggested to change towards the Mythic Voyage in the beginning of November or the one in September.
I hope this clarifies things 🙂
Love and Light,
Lies

Marianne (my mother) on April 29 2014
Hello Mikis
I am so very disapointed, because an other dates doesnt work for me. I am working in a hospital where we have to give in the vacations till February. There are to many collegues on vacation in October and September. I would have come with a friend of my daugther Sarah who just wonted to make the inscription these coming days. It seems that she neighter can go for an other date.
Isnt there a possibility in november ??please please
Thank you so much
Marianne

Sarah on April 29 2014
Hi Lies,
this is bad news, for my mother and a friend who wanted to register as well. I’m not sure they will be able to make any of the previous dates…
you should have the Nov29 dates taken out of the MV drop down menu on the registration page.
thanks for clarifying,
much L&L,
Sarah
Ps. have you received my deposit yet?

Lies on April 29 2014
Hello Sarah,
We received your deposit very well, I attached the receipt to this mail. It is $1700 in total minus the bank fees, 20$ more than 2 times 840.
We were not aware of this error before the registration of your mum, I will make sure it is removed as soon as possible, I’m sorry for the inconvenience.
With the risk of sounding like a wannabe preaching monk, I want to add that I’m sure there is a reason for this situation to have happened, whatever that reason may be.
Almost every Mythic Voyage we have a few people who are related to each other and who get to finally really know each other through it and connect truly for the first time. Maybe this is a chance for you and your mother or your friend to experience that privilege together. Or a chance for some other beautiful thing to happen. Just a thought I wanted to share 🙂
And of course, should it not be possible for your mum to come at a different time, we will consider the money to be a full coverage of your fee, owing you 20 bucks 🙂
Love ‘n Light,
Lies

Hello Sarah and Marianne, this is Mikis. I am sorry for the confusion, it is the first time we are doing the Yin and Yang 15 day Mythic Voyage and frankly I did not think there would be confusion, so I apologize. It is not possible for someone who has not completed a MV to participate in the Yin and Yang, but I can try to wiggle dates for you. Can you please send me the range of dates that are possible for all three of you and I will try to see how we can find the goldenline for everyone concerned. With goodwill, all is possible.
love n light
Mikis

Hello again Sarah,
Mikis was one step ahead of me with his email, looks like he read my mind and is helping to find the perfect solution with you 🙂
I really hope it works out!
Love and Light,
Lies

Sarah on April 29 2014
Hi Lies,
thank you and yes, I think so too. there is definitely a reason for this situation (mother aya may have a hand in this. haha), but something is telling me we’ll find a way.
I already replied to Mikis and will be in touch with you guys soon.
much love and light,
Sarah

Hi Mikis,
thank you for your message and openness to work it out with us!:-)
I myself am signed up for september first with the intention to stay and volunteer afterwards, my mother and friend Laura (and possibly even a couple of others) would like to come do a voyage in november. I am checking with them on their best dates and will get back to you asap.
in the meantime I am holding space for the best solution to present itself. I think it’s possible too! I just have a feeling..
thanks again and many blessings!
Sarah

Hi Mikis,
ok, the best dates for a 10 day voyage would range from Nov25th – Dec13th. if the voyage was anywhere within that time frame, it would work for both my mother and my friend.
would this be possible for you?
much love and light!
Sarah

Dear Sarah,
The Mythic Voyage is a life changer, a transformational experience. If the only dates available for your mother and friend are exactly the days of the Yin and Yang, that means that they do not understand the importance of this, so they will not have the necessary intention and they will quit, thus wasting their holiday time and money. Any down payment that we have received can go towards paying for your Mythic Voyage in September, so basically you are fully paid up. But I do hope that you understand what you are getting yourself into, because the Voyage can be the most important event in your life.
Love and Light,
Mikis

Dear Mikis,
you are jumping to conclusions. each one of us knows very well what we are getting ourselves into by signing up for a mythic voyage. my mother and I both have worked with the shipibo and ayahuasca before.
their availability isn’t exactly the dates of the yin yang. they could start on Nov25. if you can’t have them overlapping, then we’ll have to accept that.
I am not sure you are aware of the situation. this has nothing to do with intention. as my mother has already communicated, her job does not allow her to make big changes in vacation time. if she could, she would simply sign up for end of October! same goes for my friend. isn’t this the very reason why you offered to help find a solution?
so the only thing we actually do not understand clearly is what you meant by ‘wiggling the dates for us to find a golden line’? it sounded like you were willing to work something out. especially since you said that with goodwill all is possible.
predicting that they will quit, and basically telling us now that it isn’t possible if they can’t sign up for any of the dates already set by you, then that sounds very different! and we are back to square one.
many blessings,
Sarah
ps. the dates are still wrongly displayed in the drop down menu of the registration section on your website, Nov29-dec13 is still listed under Mythic Voyage. this is what caused the confusion.

Dear Sarah
The Yin and Yang is a Mythic Voyage, albeit a different one, and it does say on the site that it is different. We apologize for the confusion and we will see what can be done to make things clearer, but unfortunately unless we cancel it, there is no way to wiggle things around with only 4 days before available as range (many people are here a few days earlier anyway). I could have made the October Voyage later, but not by much because we always include a full moon, but your mother?s dates give me no possibility. She can try to change her holiday, it is still 7 months away. In reality, if she was having an operation, or the marriage of a daughter or any event deemed ??serious?? or justified by society she could arrange it. There was a time, in another life when I was a workaholic businessman and would never lose an hour of work because I thought the world would collapse if I did. I got sick and found out that it was fine for me to go to work at 11 am, nobody minded and I still got everything done because I had an acceptable reason. My mental health, my emotional health, my well being, my happiness were never good reasons, not for me and not for my bosses. Difficulties are self imposed, so maybe your mom and her friend, if motivated enough can find a solution. I tried, but other than cancel the Yin Yang Mythic Voyage there was none I could find, and many many people are looking forward to that one.
Love and Light
Mikis

Dear Mikis,
Please excuse my silence up to this moment. This is mainly due to two reasons: one being finding the space within myself from which to communicate, and the second one being seeing how I could juggle my own dates around to somehow be able to harmonize my desired pursuits with every day life.
I acknowledge your comments regarding intention and committing to priorities, and I also acknowledge your point of view of how a voyage such as this one should take utmost priority – without necessarily agreeing with this point of view. For many years I have prioritized spiritual pursuits beyond professional and even personal ones, going to the extreme of forfeiting my health in order to be able to be where I wanted to be. This was due also to where I was in my personal life and the need I felt to have that level of commitment to my spiritual path, which I also saw as somehow separate from my daily life, notwithstanding always carrying my practice into my daily life regardless. I have done many retreats, pilgrimages, journeys and trainings that I was unable to find a healthier balance for. Fortunately, part of my growth has been to not see it as an either/or, but to be able to carry my life in a path that harmoniously flows both ways, so pursuing spirituality and personal development is no longer confronted with building my business. As a matter of fact, my business has been a way of manifesting my passion, mission and life path into my day to day life and I no longer feel the separation between both spectrums. It has come a full circle.
All this to say that during the month of October and November there are several professional commitments that I undertake, mostly under the form of European tradeshows we exhibit and visit (I run a health food distribution company, which I founded as a way of bringing nutritional healing into the communities we are able to touch) and undertaking the October, 30th voyage was very tight. There is a tradeshow in Sweden that ends on the 27th, so attending said voyage would mean pretty much flying straight from the show into Peru, after what will already have been 3-4 very exhausting days. I have suffered from adrenal fatigue for many years and have finally recovered – part of the recovery has entailed admitting that I have a tendency of pushing myself too much, of being afraid to “miss out” and having to choose between passions and wanting to be everywhere. Ideally, I would of course have loved to be able to fly back home for a couple days, recover, unpack and repack, then fly out to Peru at a later date.
Although I no longer want to see my spiritual pursuits as a sacrifice I have to make in other areas of my life, or as a choice between being responsible towards my company and co-workers, I have been following and studying the Buddhist path for long enough to know that the spiritual path is not always devoid of obstacles (or “maras” as we call them in Buddhism) that will arise and have to be surmounted in order to grow with the path. I also acknowledge that all these maras arise from our minds and can, for the most part, be overcome also by our mind – many times it comes down to reorganizing what we had already pre-structured as inevitable and cast in stone in our minds and allowing for its flexibility to manifest into the present moment.
Much as it would indeed be possible for me to fly out on the 27th or 28th straight from Malm
