Transpersonal workshop cycles with Brazilian traditions, popular medicines, body and meditation practices, and artistic expressions.

As participant you are invited to experience rituals of passage, to connect with your personal studies and journeys, to illuminate aspects to be transmuted or redirected in your life.

During this process you will be guided by elements and tools of the ayahuasca spiritual universe (such as UmbanDaime, Santo Daime, Pajelancas, etc.), Shamanic (such as Power Animals, Healing Songs, etc.) and Afro-Brazilians (such as Umbanda, Candomblé, etc.).

(July 15-17 and July 26-28)

In this spiritual workshop, you will have sensitive and dynamic experiences through musicality, bodywork and herbs use from the Brazilian popular magical universe, especially from the Umbanda terreiros.

For the Yoruba people, the word Axé represents energy, strength, power and ‘home of the Orixá’. Practicing the Axé, in this case, means at first, identify the energy and power manifested in everything, including ourselves. And then learn how to nourish and move the free flow of that energy, inside and outside. To thus be possible, then, create a settlement of its dimension in daily life.

The idea here is to work with perception through your bodies instincts, in less rational and more instinctive approaches, so that you will be able to recognize and release the Axé in your own life.

Below some short back ground information about the Gira works.


The ‘gira’s’, as they are called in Umbanda (Afro-Brazilian mestizo spiritual tradition), are rituals with songs, dances, spells where the Universal Forces are celebrated and evoked through the contact with the Orixás (yorubás deities) and other Entities (Afro-Brazilian deities, Amerindians, Easterners, etc.).

They are wheels of healing, work and development in which, by the sound of drums and other instruments, the cosmic and nature energies are called for the ceremony to vibrate in our physical and spiritual presences (bodies)  and present us with their teachings. These deities represent and are presented by the Forces of Nature, are archetypal vibrations and manifestations connected to the Existence as a whole, from macrocosmic to microcosmic realities. Manifestations in the universe outside and within us.

The circle and dances of the xirê (wheel of praise) symbolize, in some way, the ‘cosmic turn’, present in the dance of the stars, in the seasons cycle, wheel of the year, in the interactions between the atoms in our chakras, in our muscular fibers , in our DNA, etc.

Worship and evoke these Forces in this ritual, is to have contact with their manifestations in subtle forms and concrete expressions, allowing access to the fields of experience and understanding that their vibrations reveal and enable, helping to illuminate their qualities and influences in our daily life . The idea is seek a liberation of our channels and fulfilment in our existence, in this moment our journeys, in order to produce new and better possibilities and qualities of our own presence.

So that, in these ‘xires’ of healing, connection, trance and celebration, one drinks from the higher divine consciousnesses to enhance the contact and manifestation of the deity expressed in our Higher Self.

Thank you for a wonderful workshop, it was fantastic to experience Mother Aya in another way.

I found the work to be very nurturing, gentle, loving, joyful, creative, fun and made a very strong connection with the group which I have not experienced with other works with the Aya.

I felt truly at home with the magnificent energy you channeled into the circle, the music, dancing and singing it was all so complete and whole.

Stay tuned about news, rituals and special announcements.

Since I am back, I feel very protected and in a natural way I feel connected and at ease with my environment.

BTW, it was my first workshop with Ayahuasca in which I had only blissful experiences of love and unity. Normally it is kind of hellish with all the upcoming traumas for me. But it is also nice and important to have also a different experience now.

I can really say that this work is life changing and I really want to be part of it again.

I was struck by the feeling of goodness and love that beamed out of Tania, Carol and Mariana. I appreciated their approach of teaching; it gave the whole experience a depth and a bit of an understanding and respect for the works as well as for its history.

The drumming, the singing and the dancing that surrounded the workshop, together with the flexibility, the spontaneity and playfulness really added a sense of security and familiarity to me.

This workshop has changed my life.

I truly feel that I got the chance to die and to be reborn; to clean out a lot of negative energy that has trapped me and to gain insights that will help me to live my life in a new and better way.

I have gained more self love, self respect and an understanding of life’s eternal circle that will become the steady ground to dock my ship to.

I have so much to learn, and my vision of life has shifted in a very interesting direction.

Carol's and Tania's UmbanDaime workshop was one of the most beautiful experiences I had so far. With a total abundance of creativity, the wild feminine presence of those amazing women, Love will keep swinging inside of me for a long time - what a gift!!

So much love and warmth, singing, dancing, flowers, herbs and popcorn. This particular way of  melting traditions and spirituality was new to me - very fulfilling and transformative. And it all made perfect sense to me,

I am absolutely happy.
