Testimonies

I started to connect my thoughts in a manner consistent with the heart sure the path is still long but I feel that the teachers plants
I have purified from old beliefs and who have contributed to discover a different way of seeing reality much closer the self-respect of others and the environment in which we live. Ayahuasca taught me that we are beings as powerful as insignificant if we do not use the power of our heart to connect to the rest of the universe and make our contribution to this dream is the life of which we are participants, but also co creators responsible for a gift that should not be used to follow the laws of power and destruction.
Emiliano (Italy)

I realized that in my life I was moved by false images created by my mind and education. Mother Ayahuasca helped me to keep my eyes on these illusions, but showed me how they dissolve if I don’t follow them as if they were me. Just standing in front of them without judgement or identification. I felt I can support and give help, because I’m not alone, to the deep pain of human condition. In every Ayahuasca session I saw growing in me the strong patience and compassion.

Jolanda (Italy)

I heartily recommend these workshops to all, because all are ultimately on a journey of self exploration. The company of shamans that shall accompany you is one of warmth and love.
Their beautiful songs carry you peacefully and providently through your darkest hours, your most exhilarating visions and your most profound lessons.

Ayahuasca helped me to Love and to Forgive. Certainly, I think that Love and Forgiveness is one of master keys for the balanced life. Forgiving and Loving of ourselves is the beginning of forgiving and loving of the Other, I’m convinced that is the start of the virtuous cycle for peace and wisdom. I suggest this experience to each person who’s ready to face the fears, having the desire for change. The workshop was a journey of the body, heart and the spirit; a journey both inwards and outwards. It was one of those trips that change the life; I’m now in more peace and freedom.

Agathe B. (Mexico)
It was a very powerful experience being with Maestro Bechin in the Amazon, along with Edmunds as our sensitive, insightful guide. The rich environment of the Amazon was the perfect setting for a deep connection with nature, and in turn a profound connection with my own essence.

Why Ayahuasca Prajna?

Traditionally the work with Ayahuasca is focused on connection with a realm of spirits, purging (cleansing) of emotional baggage, with a significant emphasis on the work with visions. In our view, that is just a small part of a person’s spiritual quest. Learning to open up to blockages, traumas, suppressed emotions, creativity, sexuality, etc. is only the first step.

We are in the search as long as we cling to the idea that there is something to be found, that isn’t here already, at least in the potential form. Don’t look for the flowers or fruits in the seed shop.

Our aspiration is to use Ayahuasca experience as a catalyst for wakefulness. It is not as much a particular experience that “creates a transformation”, rather its the Ayahuasca Retreat container with embodied practices and sharing (like the one of Satsang – a circle of truth or inquiry). Satsang is a powerful method that allows integrate the insights into one’s daily awareness. Read More
