Come for a powerful psycho-spiritual reboot and complete system upgrade. Join us for this unique life changing Ayahuasca & Yoga Retreat in Peru this December 13- 20th.
This all inclusive opportunity is for people with any levels of experience, and especially for those working with this medicine for the first time. It combines some of the most powerful, healing and mind-expanding traditions: indigenous shamanism, Western psychology, spiritual mysticism and yoga.
There will be three Ayahuasca ceremonies lead by a very experienced shaman, who is a musical magician with powerful medicine. Psychotherapist and retreat organizer Meriana Dinkova will teach a series of transformational workshops, designed specifically for this kind of journey.
You will learn how to maximise the experience according to your personal needs and desires, recognize and avoid potential pitfalls and integrate the insights into your ‘daily’ life. She will teach you to use her unique system of psycho-spiritual, neo-shamanistic inner-space navigation tools, specifically developed for working with the ayahuasca experience.
Included are trips to nature, optional Master Plant Dieta, sweat lodge and a water rafting trip. Numerous participants from last year’s retreat with this shaman said that the retreat way exceeded their expectations. Since the shaman is internationally well known, and gets flown to work with groups all over the world, to guarantee his safety when being abroad, he will remain anonymous in this description and go by the name CHAKARUNA. if you need more information about him, send Meriana a private message.
If you can’t make it to this retreat, but want to stay in the loop about future opportunities email Meriana with your details
THE PRICE INCLUDES: -pick up from the airport – 3 Ayahuasca ceremonies – lodging – optional Master plant dieta (with Master plants selected individually for you by the shaman) – meals (If people want to go to restaurants, instead of eating at the center – those meals would be extra) – workshops before, after and between ceremonies – Yoga Classes – visiting local places of interest and stunning nature spots, hot springs and a kayak trip – sweat lodge – if needed – individual support by Meriana and Chakaruna (who is quite fluent in English)
THE SHAMAN: CHAKARUNA comes from a long lineage of ayahuasqueros, who initiated him into the into the world of shamanism. He grew up in a family/ cultural context, which used the medicine as a way to commune with the Almighty One. He started working with the brew when he was 17 and after vigorous training with different Amazonian shapibo shamans and the Quechua Mestizo indigenous community, he developed his own form of ceremonial work based on the traditional rituals. He has been leading ceremonies since the age of 25 when during a ceremony, he had a vision of a serpent (known as the spirit of the Ayahuasca) that communicated to him that the people where waiting for him to continue the work of my grandparents who were shamans. He embraced his mission to continue to be a guide to people who desired a closer connection with the Divine. One of the main tools he uses in ceremony, is singing the sacred icaros. The icaros are sacred songs that invite the Almighty to enter into the physical world and to provide the congregant with love and wisdom. I was impressed by his beautiful voice, weaving webs between realities, and by his proficiency playing the musical instruments he uses.
Here is how he describes his work in his own words: “These spirits surround us – teach us in our soul, in our hearts to understand who we are. This sacrament is the channel that help us to go very deep… in the knowledge… from the nature… in the knowledge for the spirits… and the connection with God … with Great Spirit outside and within. They are helping us to rebalance with the Universe ( all our surroundings). When we start the ceremony we call and we pray ‘spirit of the Mama (Pachamama)’…‘spirit of this sacrament’… for to be connected in our hearts, for to be connected in the circle of ceremony. Circle of ceremony means – all together we are taking care of each other in the presence of God. The plants are the masters… the spirits are the teachers. We, the shamans are just channeling, we are just in the service to share the vibration of the Universe and to assist the congregants in connecting with our nature, which is God. In this moment after we take the sacred tea, the connection can be very strong, very deep. It causes us to confront a lot of fears that we have inside… our darkness. But then, the sacred plants particularly the Mother Plant, Ayahuasca leads us to our light and opens our heart for God’s vibration. Communicating with the plants is communicating directly with God. We pray to the plants and seek their guidance on matters of life, the learning of life, death, the hereafter and what is expected of each person to fulfill the expectations of the Divine that people live honorable lives. By imbibing the sacred tea, the people are transformed because they have had the experience of witnessing God personally as attested to by scores of pilgrims who have come to our ceremonies in Peru. The sacred ayahusaca as the vehicle to these sacred beings.”

Meriana Dinkova is a psychotherapist (MFT#45696) , a Life Coach and an Ayahuasca retreats organizer.

Her system has a lot of benefits for everyone, but especially for first timers.

Meriana has been teaching workshops on 'Navigating Altered States' since 2012, and since 2013 she has been organizing and leading retreats to Peru, which combine her system and her psychotherapy work with the Medicine work of experienced shamans. She has been pleased to see what a difference having those tools can make in the experience of participants. She has done speaking engagements and workshops about 'Navigating Altered States' at the International Amazonian Shamanism Conference in Peru, at the Women's Visionary Congress in California, at the Breaking Convention in London, at the Tantra Festival in Hawaii ,at the Envision festival in Costa Rica, at Burningman, with the Psychedelic Society SF and at other festivals and venues.
