Ayahuma Master Plant Dieta

The fruits of the Ayahuma tree are round and hard and the tree itself derives its English name form the cannonball like the appearance of these fruits. While the fruits remain inedible, they do posses powerful anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties and are frequently used to treat wounds, common skin conditions and topical fungal ailments. The leaves can be chewed t treat toothaches and the fruit and bark are frequently brewed together to create a powerful anti-inflammatory medicine.
The Ayahuma, which can grow up to 55 meters tall. is regarded by the maestro curanderos we work as an immensely grounding master plant that can help the dietero to gain resilience and wisdom through releasing past trauma and stored emotion. The warming protective qualities of Ayahuma can help the dietero to access previously unchartered levels of vulnerability. This newfound capacity for vulnerability can not only aid in the release of past trauma but can also strengthen and energize the dietero and help with the cultivation of greater compassion for the enduring potentialities of Ayahuma is that it can help to open our perception so as we come to truly embody a much deeper connection to all life on this planet. Ayahuma is often prescribed alone during the master plant dieta.

Our comprehensive screening questionnaire has been developed in partnership with the International Centre for Ethnobotanical Education, Research and Service (ICEERS). Please take your time to answer it as honestly and with as much detail as possible. This information will remain strictly confidential and will only be used to assess your suitability for a place on retreat with AYA Healing Retreats and keep you safe

Please remember that the purpose of this screening questionnaire is to determine whether plant medicine healing is suitable for you…not whether you are suitable for plant medicine healing. Plant medicines are tools, like any other healing modality and like other tools for healing experiencing them entails certain risks. We need to make sure that our plant medicines will not compromise your wellbeing or harm you in any way before we allow you to begin your healing journey with us. In short, we care about your safety and we need to do what we can to ensure that during your time with us you are not at risk of harm. Plant medicines can be dangerous if the plants are not the right fit for the individual. Your answers to this questionnaire will help us to determine whether the plants we intend to use are going to help, rather than harm you
