Disturbing reports associated with Ayahuasca International

Alberto José Varela and 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.

THIS IS A FUCKING DANGEROUS SECT
 a month ago
I went there with 2 friends of mine we payed each like 900€ for 3 days they promissed us heaven on earth. But instead it turned out to be like one way ticket to hell. I don't know where i should start... There are living 40 persons in this house which called their 'community' the room you get is worse than prison you sleep with 12 people in a verry small room with no light and no heating. When we wanted to take a shower in de morning ; no hot water, no towels. When we arived at breakfast not even 1 slice of bread or sandwish was left only cold eggs. When we were finished we needed to find out by ourself that we must wash our own plates and bring it to their kitchen and do ourselfs. So my friend and i said afther the First night ayahuasca we want to skip the second day and go back home (thinking we'll recieve our money back from that day which is 230€ a day) so we came back for 3 night and wanted to give it another try. But this time it was even worst. I've done ayahuasca in several places like holland and other place in marbella but what i saw during this session i was in shock. The product for me itself wasnt even working at all . now the second time for my friend it did one night only. So before the session we needed to be in this room with 30 persons of their community lying relaxed on the mats cosy but for me and my friend there was no place she had to lay down on the marble floor and i was pushed up in a corner with my back against the window. During the 3 hours 'intergration' which they use the name for some basic class like you have in borderlineclasses or like you can see in budhism or any other basic mastermind class. Telling us that we will learn al new things and we will be happy and understand them. Come on. I was so much suffering in that little corner... afther this 'integration' was finished we were about to do the ayahuasca.. suddenly during everyone is quitly trying to get in to the roots of the product and meditating. Suddenly one of the 'teachers' was starting to do this sexual dance on the floor so scarry screaming so loud like he got murdered.. which woke me and the others up totally in shock about whats happening.. it was then allready 3 in the morning... and i said like okay im going to go sleep now (which the room was next to this room coz again i don't feel anything of the ayahuasca i was allready not feeling good since the session and i just wanted to sleep. And on a really rude way directly the guy said no! You stay on the floor. The session is still going on.. then 15 mins later i tried again i said i was really tired and not comfortable.. and again he said i say when you leave.. so again 15 minutes passed and i look to my friend which was next to me on the floor also totally in shock and i stood up and take my bag and ran out of that place , i was so scared irritated angry... Im paying almost 900 euros to be treated like a dog.. WTF . I've got several messages afther like they said i run away because of the effect of the ayahuasca that it came from somewhere deep inside of me and it needed to come out. WTF. I have never ever been treated so bad in my life in any accamondation or hotel, place, treatment,... the people are vampire energysuckers trying to manupilate you and trying to play with your feelings and emotioncontrol. Which worked on many easy victims who are lonely and naïve! You know it's not even legal to live with so many people in this place.. they even needed to put tents in the garden because there was no place for all this community people. Especially during this covid situation... so my friend and me asked our refund of 230€ Each of the day we didn't came. So not even made use of anything which was nothing if you can imagine the breakfast to start with... we even payed 150€ extra for some bofo... but no we cannot get the refund of that day. Which should be at least one thing they could do right and be correct. Please if you want to do the ayahuasca don't go there these people are really sick! It's a dirty place , verry amateuristic, a whole croocked fucking thing which must stop!!
