It has been widely known for almost a decade that Guillermo Arevalo is not a safe practitioner. As a past 'apprentice' of his, I speak from my own experience and to the experience of others I have known in my community who have suffered harm as a direct result of his abuse of power with women. And I refer readers to this posting https://www.reddit.com/r/Ayahuasca/comments/2u594k/warning_baris_betsa_owned_by_guillermo_ar%C3%A9valo_is/ I ask that Retreat Guru please refrain from advertising practitioners on this website known to have abused power. In particular, I ask that Retreat Guru refrain from advertising male practitioners like Guillermo Arevalo, whose behavior with women constitutes sexual assault. My understanding is that Guillermo's reputation has finally caught up to him - if so, it's taken a decade. That's far too long. I call to the global community of spiritual practitioners - let's end misogyny by having zero tolerance for it.
