At Aloha we work with medicines from the plant and animal kingdom that have been used for millennia. We have endeavoured to create a safe space for people to travel deep within themselves whilst exploring the healing benefits these medicines can provide. Each ceremony is unique, although we follow certain ritual aspects which are an integral aspect to the ancestral use of each medicine. We also appreciate the chance to experience alternative perspectives on the ritual use of plant medicines, since we believe that by maintaining our hearts and minds open we might grow even more. The power of communing with plant teachers in the setting of a ceremony, and the energetic aura of the magnificent temple space fuse to create infinite potential for self discovery and healing.
Ayahuasca or yagé, is an entheogenic brew made out of Banisteriopsis caapi vine and other ingredients. The brew is used as a traditional spiritual medicine in ceremonies among the indigenous peoples of the Amazon basin and is known by a number of different names. The lineage we have studied with is through the Cofán Tribe from Southern Colombia. The Yagé ceremony is a powerful purification that allows one to dive deep within their own being and connect with their higher consciousness. We view this medicine as a way for individuals to "auto-discover" themselves, remembering their higher purpose in life, and connecting with their inner truth.
We only offer Ayahuasca/Yagé ceremonies during our "SACRED MEDICINE RETREATS". Dates for scheduled retreats can be found here on the website or under "EVENTS" on our Facebook page. For further questions or to reserve a space in an upcoming retreat please contact us via email or Facebook messenger.
