Avoid Inner Mastery! Unprofessional and very weak Ayahuasca
Reviewed by Elmira Zodi 6 months ago
I went to Switzerland Graubünden for a „Retreat“ of Inner Mastery with a friend. 1. Very money hungry 2. No preperation which is weird! All my friends who went to peru to a traditional Shaman told me that they had to do a cleanse detox before the Ayahuasca session and Inner Mastery served meat, coffee, eggs milk ect. Durring the Aya Session the Inner Mastery „Staff“ had their phone‘s and laptop‘s with them. Music was played by the laptop and no energy cleansing preperation of the room performed! The Ayahuasca it self was very very weak, I almost couldn‘t feel anything. I can tell that the other ppl who came for this experience also couldn‘t feel anything and felt uncomfortable. You can tell these ppl (inner mastery) have bad vibes and it‘s not the best place to open up and be vunerable. Don‘t trust these unexperienced ppl with no good intensions! All they want is your money and they want you to pay it all in advance! Stay woke dear light beings. Take your time to find a real shaman in the amazon! Trust your gut feeling, always!

Disturbing reports associated with Ayahuasca International
Ayahuasca International (originally Ayahuasca Internacional) is also known as Inner Mastery International S.L.U.
Important: Always look for motivations and many recommendations prior to choosing who to drink with!
For reports and resources concerning activities from disrespectful to unethical to downright horrible, see the following links:
- Official ICEERS statement: Cofán speaking out against Varela’s activities and they say he has had absolutely NO training through them, nor any of his facilitators with Ayahuasca International; that he forged documents and has lied about many associations, such as having any sort of blessing from this indigenous group of true Colombian shamans or their peoples.
- Sexual abuse testimony, and reported unorthodox practices with his small daughter around often; Cofán speaking out about his illegitmacy, as he claims to have been blessed and trained by these people; Varela’s own psychologist, who sounded a bit unorthodox himself, reportedly pushing for sexual exploration as well, is said to no longer be by Varela’s side due to Varela’s lack of ethics.
- Very interesting article detailing many astounding and unsafe practices of Varela, such as oﬀering the tea to everyone without any sort of screening or preparation, has highly advertised an illegal practice for monetary gain, including discounts for children; it is questioned where he sources his brew and whether it is in fact ayahuasca; certainly Varela’s commercial efforts are terrible for sustainability of these sacred medicines.
