Temple Mãe D’água

Situated in “Samasati”,
 a beautiful valley, with an altitude of 1200 meters, close to the town of Alto Paraíso in the state of Goiás, and
 240 Km north of Brasilia, the capital of Brazil.
 It’s founder members started drinking Ayahuasca together in 1996, and in the year 2000, the community started to grow. The members went through processes of transformation and awakening together. From those precious moments, with love and deep gratitude, they built their temple “Mãe D’Agua” (Mother of Water) at the community where they realize their spiritual work. 
Shortly after that they created the Institution “Centro de Conscientização dos Amigos da Floresta”, thus legalizing the Temple Mãe D’agua, within the legislation governing the ayahuasca. The work of the Temple is dedicated to explore all levels and states of consciousness that promote a harmonious life experience, through the recognition of the divine within, the source, the creator that we are. That awareness brings harmony with existence, and all realms of the universe.  Ayahuasca vitalizes health and creates confidence in our potential, dissolving everyday worries through the process of an expansive and liberating inner work.


Rituals with Ayahuasca

At the rituals, blessed with pure light, the divine is expressed through music, which is sublime. The members channel most of the hymns sung 
in the ceremonies. The songs open the doorway for inner exploration in an environment where love, healing, gratitude, playfulness, joy, abundance and celebration happen naturally, allowing the God within each one to manifest.
Different kinds of rituals invite different kinds of energies to experience 
this esoteric science in its full magnitude.
