Satyat Nasti paro dharmah.

many books and many movies exist already, explaining, or at least trying to convey and explain the truth or purpose  of the ancient sacred plant medicines of our world (especially of amazonas)

very simply said in one sentence,
as methaporically perfectly depicted in james camerons avatar movie, where the high advanced civilisation connects to the universal tree and nature network of planet pandora...

thats what it is, except that the disciple on our globe connects to the planetary wisdom of Planet Earth.

the question #why# is irrelevant, the wise ones of the world have been living it since the beginning of time,
you can imagine why and what for...

Conceptual thinking is a limited tool when one truly attempts to develop one's consciousness.

Indeed, human consciousness has a natural tendency to identify with thoughts and reason - stopping there. Shamans use a technology or an outside element, generally consisting of sacred plants. Using powerful psychotropic substances, the Shamans guide individuals, enabling them to "peel away" consciousness from thoughts and reason. The subconscious is gradually unveiled. During these experiences, a different reality appears and is observed through the prism of our consciousness.
Are we remembering who we are, or are we simply discovering who we are?
Without words, this reality is sometimes expressed through terror, suffering and tears. At times it comes in the form of beauty and tears of joy inspired by the magic.
It comes from within one's being, in the form of archetype images.
Each and everyone's personal history and culture individually determine this reality.

We all share a universal mythology, which serves as a source for the visions.
Each and every one of us is an infinite universe, where angels and demons make up our thoughts, emotions, memory and our body. My journey deep into the jungle continued when I met scientists from the "Aton Institute" in Norway. The Aton Institute studies consciousness, quantum physics and the molecular chemistry of sacred plants as well as past civilizations.

Huasca; Yagé; Soma; Daime; The Tea; La Purga,  In Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru, and to a lesser extent in Brazil, "ayahuasca" or "ayawaska" is Quechua for "spirit vine" or "vine of the souls"; aya means "spirit" while huasca or waska means "vine" being a  channel to the world-spirit, to gaia, mother earth, eywa, the consciousness of our planet.

Dietary Information

One of the most important aspects of working with Ayahuasca is adhering to a time-honoured tradition of following a special diet in order to prepare not just the body, but also the mind and soul to incorporate the healing energy of Ayahuasca. This diet also shows Mother Ayahuasca your intention, and is a test of discipline and commitment.

The central aspects of the diet we follow at the Temple are common to the teachings of all the ayahuasquero/as across the Peruvian Amazon. In the case of some of the food restrictions, there is also definitive scientific evidence that they are essential for safety. We advise you to begin the diet at least 1 week before a 12 day workshop and to continue the diet for at least one week after the last ceremony. It is essential to continue the diet to ensure the ikaros you have received and any possible plant remedies you are prescribed, are given sufficient time to integrate.

The food prepared at the Temple is prepared by our wonderful cooks who provide you with a well rounded, healthy and plentiful diet throughout your stay whilst adhering to the essential restrictions.

We recommend that you abstain from the following foods prior to, during and after your workshop:
No salt or pepper
No sugar, sweets or chocolate
No pork (minimum 2 weeks before and after)
No red meat
No oils (if you must use oil, use olive oil very sparingly)
No animal fats (lard, etc)
No alcohol (minimum 1 week before and after)
No fizzy drinks (including “diet” sodas, as these contain NutraSweet/Aspartame and other sweeteners), no energy drinks, no non-alcoholic beer
No seasoning (white pepper, spices, etc)
No chillies or other hot peppers
No ice, ice cream, or ice cold drinks
No dairy produce
Additional restrictions
No sexual activities of any kind, including masturbation.
Avoidance of synthetic soaps, perfumes, toiletries, etc. (Lifesystems all purpose travel soap and Dr Bronners mild liquid soap are recommended).
No prescription drugs (please contact us with more information if you are currently taking any medication, especially antidepressants or antibiotics).
If female participants are menstruating, then please inform us.
Ayahuasca is not compatible with pregnancy.

By eliminating the above from your diet, you will prepare your body physically for the Ayahuasca journey, and perhaps also reducing the amount of “purging” needed to clean your physical body. In addition to the physical aspects, by showing your commitment and determination to Ayahuasca and the Master Plants, you are creating the foundations of your relationship with them and offering them the respect which is essential for this work.
