Many of you are wondering how to attend
our Ayahuasca Ceremonies in America.
Before going into that, it's important
that you first understand the "backstory".Behind exactly what is unfolding in
our Church - right now.
On January 22, 2016, we held our first
weekend service at our Church in Elbe,
Washington.Here, we shared the sacrament Ayahuasca
with our Members, and it was a pivotal
moment, so life-changing for the blessed
people who came.(click the video above to hear these
Members' heart-opening stories)It was history in the making.Being able to share Ayahuasca in
America, as publicly as we are.Just like we were guided to by
***BTW - I'm excited to tell you about
how this whole "Ayahuasca in America"
movement started...A beautiful story, with visions that
came so unexpectedly, while I was living
in Mexico.I learned so much about how to follow
my truth, to trust my heart, and to not
care about what others think of or expect
from me...Excited to share it with you!
***Soon enough, after serving medicine
for a month in Washington, we got a
letter from the DEA. (February, 2016)It was friendly.They simply requested that we file a
petition for exemption under the RFRA,
before continuing to share Ayahuasca.( RFRA: Religious Freedom Restoration Act,
a United States federal law that "ensures that
interests in religious freedom are protected.")Fortunately, they mentioned the UDV vs
Gonzales Court Case, where a legal
precedent was set in favor of Ayahuasca.Basically:In 2006, the UDV Church fought a court
case against the US Supreme Court, to
use Ayahuasca religiously, and won.The US Supreme Court ruled that due to
the RFRA, they are allowed to use
Ayahuasca in America, legally.And based on this court ruling, and
our Constitutional Right to exercise
our Religious Freedom...We are sharing Ayahuasca in America,
openly and publicly.To bring this medicine to you - our
brothers and sisters who we know are
called to this medicine for a powerful
reason...( What is that reason? That's what I
deeply feel I'm here to help you with. )Now here's the part that matters most
-The DEA recommended[sic] we pause any retreats,
and stop sharing Ayahuasca, during the
process of filing for the exemption.This is why in March, 2016, we made
the decision to put a hold on leading
any future Church Services where
Ayahuasca Ceremonies would be involved.
For a month, we worked so hard with
our lawyer.And by April, 2016, after a very intense
process of preparing everything the DEA
asked for from us -The amazing petition was completed,
and sent off to the DEA!( Woohoo!!! )
And this is where we ask you for your help.Please pray.The power of prayer, of positive intention,
is beyond words.Please: see, and hold with excitement and
gratitude in your heart...Us - all of us - America, and the people
who need this medicine most...See that we receive this DEA Exemption.To share this life-changing medicine,
Mother Ayahuasca, inside America.To help us in our global awakening. Through
these powerful and challenging times.
Now, if you're still wondering how to
attend any of our future Ayahuasca
First thing to do, would be a member
of our Church.

we have taken down our membership page

unifying intention - wanting to discover

to those around us...To open our hearts, find the freedom our
soul seeks, and experience the deepest
fulfillment we came here to live.I'm so excited to share more. I just
wanted to let you know exactly what
