What Sacred Plant Medicines does the church use?
We use high-quality, pure indigenous, ancestral medicine from the Brazilian jungles. The medicine is made with mature plants by shamans in its place of origin, using only the traditional master formula with nothing added or altered. This purity and quality of the Sacred Plant Medicine is very important for the healing processes we offer. Ayahuasca is an Amazonian plant mixture that is capable of inducing altered states of consciousness. It usually lasts between 4 to 8 hours after ingestion. Ranging from mildly stimulating to extremely visionary, Ayahuasca is used primarily as a medicine and as a Shamanic means of communication, typically in a ceremonial session under the guidance of an experienced Shaman. It is a natural remedy for depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, drug addiction, and it also releases emotional blocks. Kambô is a traditional Amazonian Medicine derived from frogs and used as a natural remedy for the treatment of chronic pain. Other potential uses include treatment of depression, migraine, blood circulation problems, Alzheimer and Parkinson’s dis- ease, vascular insufficiency, organ diseases, cancer, fertility problems in women, hepatitis, and even HIV. Sananga is a very powerful sacred eye medicine, which is made from a shrub called “Apocynaceae” from the Amazon jungle. On the energetic level, Sananga profoundly helps to open-up the inner sight, third eye, visions, activates the pineal gland, clears any mental confusion, releases negative thoughts, and deeply cleanses the whole aura from the inside out. Rapé is a sacred shamanic snuff medicine. It profoundly helps to realign and open your chakras, It improves your grounding, releases sickness on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels, opens-up the third eye, de-calcifies the pineal gland, and elevates your connection with Spirit. We do not charge for the medicine, but for the work of accompaniment and supervision, for meals and accommodation, and for the translation of the facilitators from the country in which you are staying. We do, however, gratefully accept donations for the medicine from participants.

I'm really interested in plant medicine, but as far as I know, ayahuasca is not yet legal in the US. How is it that you can advertise this publicly?
Ayahuasca is legal in the US it won a supreme court ruling in 2006 for religious use. both plants are legal it’s the DMT that is not legal. As you can see we are a church and we use ayahuasca as our sacrament
We also have filled an Exemption letter with the DEA for religious use.
