Replanting Ayahuasca Project

The scarcity of the Ayahuasca vine is increasing at an alarming rate. With the increased popularity of Ayahuasca and Shamanic tourism, short-sighted people are harvesting the vine in damaging manners without replanting. It has been said that in order to harvest more vine, collectors are trudging deeper and deeper into the jungle.  This news from the regional indigenous people has brought this realization to the forefront.  We are blessed to have over 81 acres of prime tropical rainforest on which to spearhead the Replanting Ayahuasca Project or ‘Resembrando Amor‘* (replanting love) as we’re calling it in Spanish.

 

Replanting Ayahuasca Faster than it is Consumed

Our main goal is replanting Ayahuasca faster than it is consumed.  This initiative uses our blessed center’s land to replant the vine and other medicinal flora including the chacruna and huambisa leaves used in the Ayahuasca brew. We also want to give back to Madre Ayahuasca and thank her for all the healing she has provided to individuals across the planet.

We are a non-profit organization who uses the proceeds from each attending guest to support and fund this project.  We also try to provide the opportunity for participants to re-plant the Vine while on the property. In addition, we accept donations and ideas from those who have benefited greatly from their experience here and want to give back to the Vine.  We are only facilitators of the work and we thank Madre Ayahuasca for her blessed gift of healing through nature.  We want to help offer education to the owners and Shamans of other retreat healing centers in the Amazon region on topics such as:

  • Practice sustainable and regenerative harvesting techniques for Ayahuasca and other plants used in Ayahuasca brews and Master Plant dietas.
  • Inform all ceremony participants about the endangered nature of the plants used for ceremony.
  • Establish education programs in schools, especially tour guide training centers, to educate students about the importance of conservation and maintaining the ecology balance of the Amazon.
  • Support and encourage a commitment to planting triple the amount of ayahuasca used by shamans and centers each year.
