THE AYAHUASCA CEREMONY
The goal of our ceremonies is to create a safe and therapeutic atmosphere that encourages each participant to explore and travel within themselves, to face the darkness and embrace the light. It is only through this duality and embracing all parts of ourselves that we can truly know ourselves and find balance.
Our ayahuasqueros Juan Diego Rodriguez and Daiva Kurgonaite direct all the ceremonies. Juan Diego Rodriguez has been involved with plant medicine since 2014, first with Afinando el Alma in Spain, Centro Holistico and the Spanish Association of International Ancestral Medicines Reg619016 and now they create this beautiful space in Costa Rica.
In 2017 he felt called to work more intimately with ayahuasca and began to travel to Peru and Mexico, completing plant medicine diets under the guidance of his teachers in the Shipibas Communities, teachers with the knowledge and worldview.
Juan Diego has completed many master plant diets, has facilitated hundreds of ceremonies, and has become a strong and compassionate ceremonial leader. Daiva Kurgonaite strives to create a safe healing environment for all of our participants. Our ceremonies take place in the dark and are guided by Icaros, or medicine songs.
Each ceremony begins with cleansing rituals to prepare the space. From there, the night is guided through the mighty Icaros of Daiva and Juan Diego accompanied by a variety of other instruments.
We drink with the participants the Medicine that we ourselves have cooked, since 2021 we cook our own Ayahuasca in countries like Peru, we also collect other Ayahuascas from countries like Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, etc., creating an unprecedented bank of Ancient Medicines.
