What is Ayahuasca?

Ayahuasca is a brew that has been used in sacred indigenous ceremonies for thousands of years. It is made from the combination of a vine (B. caapi/Jagube) and a leaf (Chacruna/Rainha). These two plants act in synchronicity: as an MAOI, the vine prevents the stomach from metabolizing the DMT from the leaf - this allows for an entheogenic/psychedelic experience. This basic brew has been used by many cultures across South America and has many names, among them Santo Daime, Uni and Yagé. 

Ayahuasca, She is the mother of all medicine. A tool to help you find yourself, to know yourself, by destroying the image of who you think you are, and illuminating the truth.
The knowledge that you can acquire from ayahuasca is not imparted from the Great Cosmic Serpent, or from a source outside of yourself. This is an inner journey, where only love and faith can guide you."
- Don Juanito

Ayahuasca unravels the psyche and goes deep within the unconscious mind, allowing the drinker insight and release of energetic blockages, "dis-ease," and emotional/psycho-spiritual imbalances.

Kambo Casita works directly with the Santo Daime in Brazil. Santo Diame brew is made during a special process called "feitio." Women gather and clean the leaves while men pound the vines. Throughout the two weeks in which it is cooked and never left unattended, it is prayed and sung over for the entire duration. This incorporates the teachings of the Santo Daime into the brew which brings love and light into the ceremonial space.

Your experience at Kambo Casita will always be hands on and bespoke, whether you organize an individual one on one experience or for a small group. The ceremony is an eclectic mix of shamanic traditions, including music, chanting, meditations, breath work, energy work, and silence. For more information, please contact us.
