This center just had a death. And it's absolutely heartbreaking that the death was a facillitator who committed suicide DURING a ceremony. There are numerous stories coming out now on facebook and in the ayahuasca community about the owner, Omar Gomez (an alias by the way. His real name is William Felding) and his emotional and sexual abuse of staff and guests.
He reaches out to female guests after retreats and tries to lure them to his home for visits and has tragically slept with many of them. This is taking advantage of women still under the influence of ayahuasca.
That a facillitator committed suicide during a ceremony speaks volumes as to the lack of safety, screening and competence happening at Rainforest Healing Center. I feel so much compassion and grief for that poor young man's family. What happened to him was in no way his fault. http://proycontra.com.pe/canadiense-se-acuchilla-luego-de-tomar-ayahuasca/
