We provide prep-workshops that result in an understanding of the long-term effects of Ayahuasca on the brain and how they manifest in one's mind. Free from misconceptions, superstition or dogma, we take a rational approach to the plant-medicine.

Personalized ceremonies take place in safe and comfortable environments, surrounded by good infrastructure and medically trained staff.

Founder @ Ayahuasca Mastermind

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ —a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. -Albert Einstein

Venue Highlights

Santos is located a 90 minute drive from Sao Paulo Airport at the beautiful coastline of the state of Sao Paulo and is considered one of the best places to live in Brazil. Due to its beaches, infrastructure and safety it is the perfect setting for our mastermind. Santos is a recognized spa town featuring a seven-kilometer stretch of beach with a verdant promenade that is the largest Beach Front Garden in the world (Guinness World Records) and separates the beach from the seafront condos and hotels, along which families and friends walk, bike, skate, surf, you name it.


With the help of our advice and recommendations you will choose your preferred accommodation in Santos, SP. Hostel, Airbnb or hotel. Choose according to your budget and preference.


  • Tour Assistance


There are many ways to get around in Santos I recommend, by foot, bike, rental, Uber. The small municipality has over 2000 active Uber drivers and a ride across the entire city costs about 5 USD in average. There are bicycle lanes rental stations for bikes and electric scooters all over the city. Make sure to avoid Brazilian school-holidays in January and June, when planning your stay in Santos.

      My experience with Ayawakening - Rituals & Retreats in Santos Brazil

    First & Foremost I would like to thank Daniel and his Team for their professional Guidance & information about Ayahuasca which I needed most which led me to take part in this new journey of Spiritual rebirth & spiritual awakening.. My Ayahuasca experience was very positive and a door-opening experience for my future. I would like to recommend the Ayawakening - Rituals & Retreats in Santos Brazil with Daniel to everyone who would like an unforgettable Ayahuasca journey of life time.

Wonderful insight, marvelous experience, great connections and a friendship that will last for a lifetime. Great human. Thank you ????

      A safe and amazing experience

    I attended one of Daniels 3-day 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 live 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.

      Gratidão ????

    All my life, I struggled with low self-esteem and fears, always sought an inner peace that I never had. I read a lot about ayahuasca and I was filled with hope that peace could come from this tea. When I arrived at the ritual I did not like the environment very much and I judged so many people there. After I drank the 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 passed, but I have grown a lot through this. Today I continue treatment with microdosing and it is fundamental to my psychological and emotional wellbeing.

      Good to wake up

    Santos is a dream town in Brazil: you can walk safely at night at the beach and enjoy the cool air. Families and children do the same even by midnight. Then there are the many offers for tourists, Brasiliens from São Paulo and other places. Daniel gave us an excellent science based introduction about the use and working of Ayahuasca. He then brought us personally to a place of meditation where we received the tea and enjoyed the friendly company of Brasiliens and Westerners. We felt very safe and the music was good and stimulating. We both had our spiritual experience and felt new born the next morning. We will come again.
