Amaru Spirits Home

Ayahuasca comes from a native Quechua word “aja-waska’ meaning literally “spirit vine” or “vine of the soul”.

Ayahuasca ceremonies have been used for thousands of years by indigenous groups in the Amazon regions spanning Peru, Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil for healing, insight and spiritual cleansing. Ayahuasca is an extraordinary healing force, perhaps the most powerful in the world.
For answering the most important human questions – ‘who am I?’, ‘why am I here?’ and ‘in what manner should I live?’.
As well as answering many important questions about the nature and truth of human life, Ayahuasca can cleanse the body physically and make it stronger, healthier and more resistant to disease. Ayahuasca can also make us aware of our addictions and unhealthy emotional patterns so we gain insight and the ability to choose differently in how we do our life and relationships. 
Ayahuasca is an integral part of our work at Amaru Spirit. However, we do not regard it as a magic bullet, nor is our work solely focused around it. Ayahuasca is a master healer, and the greatest service we can do is to prepare each body so that Ayahuasca can enter and do its work as effectively as possible. This means careful preparation and physical cleansing. Also, the integration work afterwards is as important as the journeys themselves – i.e. ‘how do I bring this information into my life in practical terms?’. All these issues must be addressed to honor the work that Ayahuasca does for us.


All the Ayahuasca we work with is carefully prepared by us at Amaru Spirit. It is served safely and respectfully in our cathedral style ceremony house (maloka) 3 times a week.
