About This Event

Educate yourself about the mechanisms of Ayahuasca, experience it in a safe environment and reap the benefits.


Experience the powerful benefits of an ayahuasca retreat, without making compromises regarding privacy or comfort. For our 10 Day Mastermind you will choose your own accommodation. We believe that privacy and independence are a big bonus for an ayahuasca retreat aimed at personal growth an personal well being. Pick a luxury Spa, Hostel or choose a private apartment on AirBnB. Santos has everything to offer and booking assistance is included.  As locals we can assure that you make the right pick for your personal preferences and needs.


In our prep-webinar you will learn everything you need to know to prepare for your journey. You will develop an understanding of the short and long-term effects of ayahuasca on the brain. You will also learn about the historic and contemporary use of ayahuasca in Brazil and the context of the ceremonies in which you will participate.


Ayahuasca culture in Brazil is relatively modern but always associated with ritual and religion. Taking ayahuasca in the context of ritual is probably the most effective way to do it for many reasons. However, religion and rituals often go along with dogmas and superstitions about ayahuasca. There are even some common misconceptions among practitioners, that can lead to serious health risks for certain individuals. Such as unnecessarily strict diets in preparation, combination with other substances, or simply overexertion.

This is why we provide professional, independent guidance. As experienced guides and trip-sitters, we know Brazilian culture, language and the science of ayahuasca. This allows us to add an extra level of safety and care for your mental and physical well being. We choose our facilitators carefully and the ceremonies take place in safe environments, surrounded by nature and experienced staff. Ready, set, let go.


Once you have experienced ayahuasca first hand, it is time to dive deeper into the science of the ayahuasca afterglow (the weeks after taking ayahuasca). If used intentionally, the increase in brain-plasticity and neurogenesis in the brain 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. The ability and willingness to self-reflect is probably the most important psychological prerequisite for the intake of ayahuasca.


Taking microdoses of a substance means taking a fraction of a dose that would be required to have a full-blown experience. Microdosing psychedelics is a huge trend in the business community and there are good reasons for this. A microdose of ayahuasca has beneficial effects, similar to those of the afterglow.  In this workshop you will have a chance to experiment with microdosing ayahuasca and learn all about sourcing and microdosing psychedelics in general and ayahuasca in particular.


Our coaching sessions are all about you. Your personal goals and how your ayahuasca journey can help you get there. We also offer professional video-shoots for your personal record. A snapshot of yourself and your goals at that time, that may serve you in the future.


We practice selected meditations from the “Vijnana Bhairava Tantra”. Vijnana = Science in Hindi, Bhairava =  Bha means creation, ra means sustenance and va means destruction. Therefore, Bhairava is the one who creates, sustains and dissolves. Tantra = A mystical spiritual path. This 5000 year old ancient dialogue between the deity Shiva and his consort Devi is considered by many as the last word on meditation.  It describes 112 ways to enter into the universal and transcendental state of consciousness. A real treasure of direct pathways to inner awakening.


After your experience you will feel great and we want it to stay that way. During the afterglow you will have a heightened sensibility, creativity and overall brain-plasticity. In this valuable time-frame you will be powerful and vulnerable at the same time. Our on-demand integration sessions, will allow you to avoid typical mistakes and help you make the most of your afterglow.

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. - Albert Einstein
