First Legal Ayahuasca Retreat to Open in the U.S.

This is a good start. Let five years go by and we will see how well it is tolerated. It is actually very good news as this whole thing needs to be pioneered. More to the point though, law enforcement has just backed of marijuana. For that reason, they may not wish to get sucked into another similar problem with the same inevitable result.

I expect it to catch on easily and i expect a brisk expansion as more shamans become experienced.  It is just too clinically beneficial to be ignored.

I suspect that the Drug War is truly over except for the housekeeping.  Too many benefits to exploit.

First legal ayahuasca retreat to open in the U.S.

In News by Jamie Peck / December 3, 2015

Americans will no longer have to travel deep into the jungles of Peru to have a life-changing experience with ayahuasca.

According to Ayahuasca Healings, an organization that originally provided retreats to Peru for Americans looking to imbibe the ancient plant medicine, the first legal ayahuasca church will begin administering the stuff to U.S. psychonauts in January of 2016. It’s spiritual, it’s cosmic, and it’s just 90 minutes north of Sea-Tac airport.

Writes friendly stateside shaman Trinity de Guzman:

This is really happening! For truth. For love. For awakening. For us all!

To discover the depths of Who We Really Are. To commune with Mother Earth, learn from her, grow with her, and sit with this Sacred Sacrament, Mother Ayahuasca, this life-changing plant, great teacher, spirit, to ask her to show us what we need. To let go of what no longer serves us, and to come more and more deeeeply into our Divine Remembering.

We are moving onto 160 beautiful pristine acres, in Washington State, on December 1st, 2015!
The price: a mere “suggested donation” of $1,497 to $1,997 USD.

For those not in the know, ayahuasca is a psychotropic vine that has long been held as a sacrament by the indigenous peoples of Peru and surrounding areas but has recently gained popularity among new age-y westerners as an Eat, Pray, Love-style journey to self-actualization. (It also has applications for physical and mental health which, contrary to popular belief, do not require a belief in the supernatural.) That said, it’s an intensely terrifying psychedelic trip that can last up to 12 hours and generally makes you puke and shit your brains out. So … a bit more involved than yoga.

The legal status of ayahuasca in the U.S. is currently murky, as its active ingredient, DMT, is outlawed as a Schedule I drug, but the plant itself is unregulated. I’m going to guess this place got itself officially recognized as a church much like the Native American peyote churches did, “It’s my religion” being the sole, bizarre loophole through which America’s fascist police state will allow you to do something you should be allowed to do regardless.

So if you want to ingest this amazing plant in a therapeutic, clinical setting without appropriating another culture’s belief system, you’re shit out of luck. But if you’re into the spiritual aspects of ayahuasca and have a couple grand to burn, go here to fill out an application.

UPDATE, 1:30 p.m.: Following a large amount of interest, Ayahuasca Healings has closed their applications for the U.S. retreat for now, but you can still sign up for the mailing list to receive updates.



My name is Trinity de Guzman, and I’m the co-founder of the Ayahuasca USA Movement.

For Truth, for Love, for Healing… for us all!

For The Great Awakening unfolding through this movement, through this medicine, Mother Ayahuasca, and into the hearts of the people who need it most… we are so excited to legally bring Ayahuasca in America!

Our mission is to create 30 Ayahuasca USA Churches, near the 30 largest cities in America, before 2032, the start of our New Golden Age.

Ayahuasca USA – A Native American Church

We are a legally established independent Native American Church, that desires to protect and restore to the world our religious and personal freedoms as a Native American Religious Culture.

To sit with this Great Spirit & Teacher, Mother Ayahuasca, and in doing so, commune and deepen your connection with what & whom you define as the Creator.

To look within, to heal what no longer serves, to come back more fully into your Divine Remembering of Who You Really Are… Your Divine Purpose… Why you are here on this planet.

We are so committed to making an Ayahuasca Ceremony USA available to the masses, so we have partnered with some of the world’s most influential voices, conscious leaders, and gifted healers, to build a Spiritual Healing Center & Conscious Community, unlike anything that has ever been created in the United States.

Our World is Sick

The fact is, our world suffers from an invisible sickness… a lack of purpose, a lack of clarity as to what our deepest heart’s yearning is…

We grow up in a world, and we are bombarded by fear-based media, it’s no wonder that we are afraid to follow our dreams, so we take the “safe” route, which we are all taught from childhood, to simply go to school, get a good job, and save up…

Yet, little do we know, is that path often leads to a life that is the same repetitive day again and again, and it’s nowhere close to as fulfilling as we would like it to be.

And we forget to question… what is it that I really want to do with my life?

Well, that question, lead you here. Lead you to Mother Ayahuasca. And as you read this, it now leads you to the possibility of being able to experience Mother Ayahuasca in America for yourself.

The Question?

There’s one thing that always brings people to Mother Ayahuasca.

It’s a questioning. A deep knowing from within that something in your life is just… off.
You might not know exactly what it is, or maybe you have some idea, but deep inside, there’s a part of you that searches for answers… for clarity… for direction.

A reason for living… to find the deepest fulfillment that your soul cries for.

This questioning, is the common thread between the hundreds of thousands of people, from across the globe, who come searching for this Sacred Medicine.
And if you feel the call, if you’re reading these words, I have no doubt, that one day, sooner or later, you will sit with Mother Ayahuasca… and it will be one of the greatest things you’ve ever done for yourself.

The Answer?

I’m not here to convince anybody to sit with this life-changing medicine.

I’m simply here to educate you, give you all the information you could possibly want and need, and let you know, that you can now experience Mother Ayahuasca in the USA, legally.

The time has come.

The world is waking up.

I truly believe that Ayahuasca is going to be as common language as Yoga & Meditation. And it will be looked at as one of the greatest medicines ever to come to the USA… to help heal the widest array of sicknesses that we suffer from as a society:

Lack of Purpose / Direction
Lack of Inspiration / Passion
Suicidal Thoughts
Just to name a few.

Honestly, if you feel something is off, somewhere in your mind, or your heart… maybe you can feel the part of your soul saying that the way you’ve been living is finally time to change… then maybe this Sacred Medicine from the Amazon is what you’ve been looking for.

Honest Warning

I will warn you though.

This is only for people who are 100% committed and serious about their inner work and personal transformation.

This isn’t easy. It will show you things about yourself that a lot of people would much rather just not know.

But that’s why it’s one of the greatest medicines ever to be brought to America.

Are you willing to look inside? And bring healing, and love, to the places in your past that need it most?

I’ve never experienced anything that can help so many people, so powerfully, so quickly… and that’s why I’ve dedicated my life to sharing this medicine, and making these Ayahuasca Retreats USA available to the public.

When we find peace in our own hearts… the world will have peace.
The time has come.
We are waking up!

Thank you!!

With SO much love, here to serve in every way we can,
