EGO teacher with no feeling for the medicins and no awareness
Reviewed by Carolina 5 months ago
Attended a retreat with Amalia, she was a disaster!!! She created the most unsafe space. The biggest ego I have ever encountered in spiritual healing space. She was absolutely horrible, manipulating all participants in the so called integration meetings. Twisting words to be able to say smart things. Her ego was feeding off the participants!! We did a San Pedro session where the medicin was not honored at all. It was her ”favorite medicin” but it usually doesn’t come with an effect until later she Said. So she and her partner gave all of us the medicine and then set us up for different activities regarding nothing connected to the medicin. Like we were waiting for some kind of drug to ”kick in”. Whilst the acitivites was going on the medicin started working inside me, and I had to leave the space to be able to work with the medicin and ended up alone in my room with a vomiting bucket by my self. NO respect for the medicin!!!! I did not trust this woman at all - she is comepletely and disturbingly wrong to hold such a space. Bless all particpants who got manipulated by her. She detested my light - and did really have a grudge against me questioning everything I Said about my on experience of awakening. This woman works from ego and not from a space of love and light.

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.
