Narcissistic bullshiters pretending healers. Better avoid.
Reviewed by Ms A 5 months ago
Has attended few ceremonies in area Berlin/Hamburg. My ayahuasca experiences were ok, but sadly facilitators really incompetent and one facilitator with narcissistic personality disorder, very severe one!!! very sad that he was allowed to give ayahuasca and make integration. I didn't feel safe to open fully in such an atmosphere. I also wonder if they really know what to do, and with what place they think hiring toxic people to perform a ceremony!! Feels like they need more conscious awareness what ayahuasca is and what people who come there to drink need. Feels like they don't care and don't give a fuck about anyone there. In short, I don't advice these bullshiters!!!
Participants in ceremony: 12

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.
