About us

MERIANA DINKOVA is psychotherapist (MFT#45696), speaker, workshop facilitator and Ayahuasca retreat organizer. She has created a comprehensive system of psychological and neo-shamanistic tools, designed to assist with the navigation and integration of non-ordinary states of consciousness in general and with the Ayahuasca experience in particular. Meriana developed her innovative system over the past 20+ years of working with the medicine while studying and practicing a wide variety of psychotherapeutic methods and transformational modalities. Additionally, her teachings are informed by the many years she spent immersed in the transpersonal teachings of different non-dualistic spiritual teachers and through the practice of a wide variety of meditation methods. Meriana’s unique system is useful for people with different levels of experience and her guidance can make a world of difference for people who are drinking ayahuasca for the first time. 

Since 2013 she has been organizing Ayahuasca retreats to Peru in which she combines her work with the medicine work of experienced shamans.Meriana gives lectures and teaches workshops in the US and around the world, sharing the system she has developed at conferences and festivals, including the International Amazonian Shamanism Conference in Peru, the Women’s Visionary Congress in California, the Breaking Convention in London, the Tantra Festival in Hawaii, the Psychedelic Science Conference (MAPS), the Envision festival in Costa Rica, Burning Man and others.
