Since the last dieta I’ve been feeling good in general, specifically at the physical level, the headaches and stomachaches I had before have now disappeared. Emotionally, the feeling of anxiety decreased considerably, which has allowed me to do my daily activities enjoying them, instead of thinking about finishing them soon and being worried about the result. This has allowed me to be enchanted by the energy that our daughter brought to our lives. The dieta connected me with the anger I had and that now is gone, I feel calmer and at peace than before.

Thanks to you, to the dieta, to the plants I came out of my spiritual lethargy and I woke up. I continue purging and dieting and, dieta after dieta, I discover the power of this work. I changed my energy, my job... and my life that was not going so bad, now goes even better! My soul awakened since my stay in Takiwasi and continues its journey in joy and happiness to live every day renewed.

I’m writing to thank you with all my heart for the intense and beautiful work that we did with you in the dieta. For me it was an experience beyond what I can express with words, a night so intense, so painful, but at the same time so magical and liberating... Really a trip to "Les Tréfonds" to discover the human soul ... Thank you for the hard work, love and all the care you gave us... Now that I'm back, I try to put everything I've learned into practice in order to be able to return to work in the future, having done the homework.

If I had to summarize this experience in Takiwasi in 3 words, I would say "powerful", "soothing" and so "alive". The supervision and the professionalism are such that the frame, firm and benevolent, is immediately posed and accompanies us throughout the process.
You also touch something else, everyone will call it as they want. This seminar is a wonderful balance between medicine, psychology and spirituality. You enlighten the path, and feel the future to appease the present moment and fully live it.

The benefits of my Ayahuasca sessions exceeded the idea I had in advance. My experience was a long physical and psychic cleansing work, and the benefits were incredible for me: my look softened, I became patient (something I could not do before) and that feeling I had before that my life was always lived under the blow of resignation and non-discernment ended. I came out with more confidence, acceptance of my life, discernment and mental strength.

On the physical level, the benefits of the activities I participated in were very positive and important. I no longer need to use sleeping pills to which I was dependent for 8 years. Now I sleep quite well and I do not wake up any more during the night. It’s really a very big change for me. On the psychic level I feel very good and finally at peace with myself.

I arrived at Takiwasi after about 20 years of personal research in the field of spirituality. I studied and practiced various teachings (Christians, Buddhists, Hermetists...). I discovered psychoactive plants after reading a book by Stanislav Grof.
The "travels" I experienced during my Ayahuasca sessions were very powerful. They allowed me to go to meet deep wounds. They also allowed me to discover facets of myself that were unknown to me. These trips were exhausting and tiring, to the point that it took me several hours after the end of the ritual to successfully get up.
I am convinced that I have lived much more than I would have done in a lifetime of inner journey. This is not just a way of speaking, it is truly a conviction, an obviousness. A large "quantity" of suffering, misery, has been digested, metabolized, or expelled during sessions. I’ve also been able to live strong inner events on a spiritual level. I now believe that spiritual journey and therapeutic journey are two sides of the same coin.

The experiences lived have changed the way I look at my professional and private life. My relationship with my family has improved. I was able to resolve old conflicts by better understanding the mechanisms of their creation. I started to invest more in the relationship with my family, allowing me to find the love I have always sought. On a professional level I learned a lot about the spiritual dimension of a disease, my role as a doctor and the unconscious processes of the doctor-patient relationship.

I feel different, I cannot explain it. It's something very subtle, like an additional force to me, but that I do not feel it is alien. It manifests in several ways. I like it, I feel it helps me to be centered, to return to a kind of silence where I can perceive myself more. This affects my daily life almost all the time, I think that for good, it is as if I were more present.

After my experience at Takiwasi a lot of things happened. I realized that after participation my health really improved. I suffer less allergies, less food intolerance, less joint and arthritic pain. Also, my relationship with my husband improved, we can be more supportive to each other.

After almost 6 months, I still have 12 kilos less, I eat a lot less sugar, I go to a short morning service three times a week, I meditate an hour almost every day, I get up in the morning without any problem and desire to live, etc. I am impressed by all the changes that are taking place with some not very big efforts. The furrow deepens with confidence, peace, joy of life and many things. I am very grateful for everything that happens to me, my rooting continues and allows me to open myself and open my heart.
Santiago RubioSpain 04/09/2017
The experience there was absolutely wonderful and at the same time the hardest I had ever lived, because the "cosmic mother ayahuasca" in one of the sessions took me to my psychic limit, confronting me with my deepest fears. I could even solve the death of my brother who passed away a few years ago and who still appeared in my dreams. I surely needed help to face all these situations and there was Jacques Mabit and his team of psychologists with large experience.

The process of purge, ceremony (ayahuasca) and dieta of Ajo sacha with Bobinzana somehow answered my questions as well as marked a new direction, much clearer and more solid, in my work. I could summarize the learning of the dieta as a profound process of re-contacting and strengthening my spiritual roots, from an unexpected and surprising rediscovery of my Christian roots, to reviewing my own faith and confidence in the biological world, love, breathing, and the univocal law that straightens and shines a spotlight on growth and maturation from the physiological to the spiritual. The return from the dieta marked a hard but very pleasant work, to realize all that vision in my job and daily life.
