Come for a retreat for accelerated healing and deep psychological, emotional and spiritual reprogramming in the jungle of Peru this July. It will be a merging of some of the most powerful healing, and mind- expanding traditions of the indigenous culture of Peru and the Western world- Medicine work and psychotherapy. It will be a combination of four Ayahuasca journeys, with one of the most skilled shapibo healers of his generation- Ricardo Amaringo, and 4 days of transformational workshops, designed to help you navigate the shamanic landscapes, and make the most out of your plant medicine journeys, facilitated by psychotherapist Meriana Dinkova. It will be a valuable combination of neo-shamanistic tools, psychotherapy techniques, plant medicines and traditional healing techniques.
We will use neo-shamanic technology aimed at removing emotional malware , getting rid of psychological viruses, and rebooting and upgrading your emotional and psychological operating system:)

Meriana Dinkova’s workshops between the ceremonies will address core issues that plant medicines can heal, and give you a map, framework, and tool kit to navigate the Ayahuasca experience in a safe way, while maximizing the learning and transformation it can provide. In the workshop we will zoom in individually on whatever emotional ties of unconscious believes are holding you back from fully rocking your self and your life.

- We will become aware of our ancestral contracts and beliefs that will aid you in letting go of thoughts and fears, which are no longer serving us, and align our energy and intention in ways that supercharge the manifestation of the goals and projects, aligned with our deepest purpose
- Through specialized consciousness tools, we will explore ways to deal with and shift difficult experiences, and uncover the treasures they often hide
- You will learn some neo-shamanistic, transpersonal, and somatic techniques for navigating the multi-dinmentional landscapes, and harvesting their spiritual treasures, as well as the ‘proper code of conduct’, when encountering entities from other planes
- You will get support in custom- designing the YOU that you are inspired to grow into, and learn how to live and manifest from there
-You will become aware of places where you are still holding old resentments and regrets and will learn rituals and practices, that support you to forgive and let go – be it others or most importantly yourself.
- You will learn tools to open and work with different dimensions of reality and work with the beings from those realms as guides and allies.
- You will get a lot of support with integration of the experiences during the retreat into your life ‘back home’ We also create a community context and encouraging on-going social bonding with the community post-treatment, as a support system.

Between ceremonies participants will be put on a special plant diet with Master plants, selected specifically for them.

Meriana’s workshops will give you tools to maximize your learning and experience with the different brews and the specific opportunities for healing and learning they provide.
