Couroupita guianensis

Ayahuma DIETA

Ayahuma Master Plant Dieta

The fruits of the Ayahuma tree are round and hard and the tree itself derives its English name from the cannonball like the appearance of these fruits, and was thus given the name cannonball tree. Native to the tropical areas of Central and South America, these trees can easily grow to over 55 meters in height. While the fruits remain inedible, they do possess powerful anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties, and are frequently used to treat wounds, common skin conditions and topical fungal ailments. The leaves, with large oblong petals, can be chewed to treat toothaches.

 The fruit and bark are frequently brewed together to create a powerful anti-inflammatory medicine which can also disinfect wounds due to antibacterial and antifungal properties. The bark of this incredible tree can also be used to treat common colds, or signs of upset stomachs. The fruits are large woody berries, you will find them yellow when fresh, often dried into a powder to combat hair loss. 

Couroupita guianensis, being such a large tree, carries a powerful, more potent energy when compared to smaller plant medicines. However, there is nothing to fear, this spirit is a gentle and compassionate teacher, capable of providing great protective energetic power. Many shaman healers of different tribes agree that one of the main purposes of undergoing a dieta with this potent tree is for the protective qualities it offers for future ceremonies.

Ayahuma is regarded by the maestro curanderos we work with as an immensely grounding master plant that can help the dietero to gain resilience and wisdom through releasing past trauma and stored emotion. The common name of this tree is composed of the Quechua words AYA – ‘dead’, and HUMA – ‘head’ , which refers to the shape of the fruits. 

The warming protective qualities of the Ayahuma spirit 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, while cultivating greater compassion. The tree’s greatest gift is that it can help to open our perceptions as we come to truly embody a much deeper connection to all life on this planet. Couroupita guianensis is most often prescribed alone during the master plant dieta. Often, the first thing seen in visions is a beautiful flower and a wonderful feeling of being connected to nature.

It is common for the dietero(a) to purge during the dieta process. Although the taste is not so bad, the medicine will be active in the stomach. Many report an expansive, vibrational feeling within the stomach. Typically, doses are prepared and soaked in water for up to 8 hours. Your curandero will inform you about dosage timings and answer any questions you may have. A dieta with this master plant will require a commitment to a special diet and lifestyle for the duration of your relationship with the plant spirit.

WAITING LIST

Don Miguel

Shipibo Curandero

AKA Senen Yoi - 'Speaking the Truth'

Don Miguel was born into a Shipibo community called Roaboya on the River Ucayali. When Don Miguel was a child, Angel Sanchez Vargas, his grandfather was the community’s curandero. Vargas was an expert in sacred plant medicines and was frequently called upon to heal and share his spiritual wisdom with members of Roaboya. The school built some years later was named after Vargas and Roaboya went on to be recognised as the first indigenous community 114 years ago. Don Miguel grew up surrounded by the Shipibo wisdom and possess intimate knowledge of the sacred plant medicines. At a very young age he began his apprenticeship as a curandero through plant dietas under the supportive guidance of his grandfather. Miguel is also a trained literature professor and thoroughly enjoys teaching the Shipibo language and culture. Since 2012, Don Miguel has spent the bulk of his time leading lectures, workshops, initiation courses and retreats. Don Miguel will lead our Ayahuasca ceremonies, circle discussions and be available for personal consultations whilst on retreat.

Application

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
