This is an in-person only program. We will meet on the 2nd and 4th Sundays from 11am – 2pm each month for 11 months beginning June 11, 2023.

Mama Ayahuasca creates a life-changing experience for those who work with Her – be it as ingesting Her medicine OR entirely in Spirit.  When you are ready to step into the world of this very powerful, transformative plant spirit, your life and being is forever changed.  This program is to gently and lovingly guide you through that change and how to integrate Her medicine into your everyday life as to avoid a full-on life crisis freakout that most people experience.

During this year-long journey, we will work with the Spirit of Ayahuasca.  No, there will not be any plant medicine taken in any way.  This is a journey working with Her Spirit.  There are MANY places you can find to drink the yage, but very few vital teachings about how to actually heal yourself WITH Her help and integrate the Medicine She brings.  This Program is designed to allow for life-changing transformation to occur without the trauma.

This Program is for you if you:

  • Are ready for very deep, transformative healing with the Mother of All Plants
  • Have taken the yage in ceremony before, but now don’t know what to do with your life after such a life-changing experience
  • Are considering working with Ayahuasca plant medicine in a future ceremony but would like a thorough way to prepare for a life-changing experience
  • Feel stuck in your healing journey and no healer has been able to pull you through to date
  • Are looking for a profound online course that offers 24/7 live support during your healing journey

An Intensive Program by nature, the next 11 months will challenge you to your core beliefs, fears, resistances, and much much more.  This is why Rev. Denise makes herself available to you via phone, text, or email.  Working with Mama Aya – even if only in Spirit – can be overwhelming at times.  You will have the support of the Rev. Denise and your Mama Aya Tribe to help you through with Love.

There will be homework assignments given at the end of each class meeting.  Homework is to be completed as it is a vital and ancillary part of the program. 

This Program is heavy in direct experience material.  While you will receive content material relating to your healing journey, a large majority of this program is to empower an authentic connection between you and Mama Ayahuasca primarily.  This is also how Rev. Denise honors the unique belief systems and healing journeys of every participant.  She believes in creating a purity of experience via direct experience.

Investment is $1,797 or $167/month for 11 months. Acceptance into the program will require the last month’s payment as a non-refundable deposit. 

By the end of this course, you will be empowered in the following ways:

  • How to connect with the Spirit of Ayahuasca (perhaps the most empowering tool you’ll ever learn)
  • Stripping Illusions of self and world
  • Healing ancestral wounds
  • Soul Retrieval
  • Multiple Ceremonies including Fire Ceremony
  • How to Love Yourself and Others Unconditionally
  • Vision Boards
  • Rewiring toxic patterns and belief systems
  • Healing your Inner Child
  • Healing your past and Stepping Into your future with clarity
  • Remembering who You are and why you’re here
  • And more!

“I write this full of love, humility and gratefulness.   The woman that began this course no longer exists. At first, I thought that this would be too much for me. I was enrolled in two courses simultaneously. But for me, this was the only way. 
Mama Aya took me in arms wide open and Denise guided the way. Together, they have the most beautiful harmony. I learned so much about myself, toxic patterns, letting go, ancestral trauma, fire ceremonies, self healing. Truly too much to share. I have come to such an understanding of who I once was and who I am well on my way to becoming. 
This program has not only changed my life but most importantly, saved my life. I was bombarded with so many things this past year and through Mama Aya and Denise’s help I was able to grow, understand and look at certain things in a new light. I created boundaries and let go of what no longer serves me. You have to put in the work and be your most vulnerable and authentic self. 
To say I am unrecognizable at a soul level would be an understatement. I am forever grateful and indebted to Denise and Mama Aya. Where would I be had it not been for this course? Good thing I will never have to know. 
Denise is not just my mentor. I am elated to call her my sister and friend. Always available to answer my questions or to help with the curve balls of life. I am so happy that spirit crossed our paths. I wouldn’t want this journey to be facilitated by anyone else.    
Forever grateful and forever your student. Here’s to many more journeys. Love…” – WC

About Rev. Denise:

In 2011, Rev. Denise began her healing journey working with the Spirit of Ayahuasca in preparation to her trip to Peru in 2012.  She worked with Mama Aya in Spirit for a full year before ever stepping foot onto Peruvian soil.  She did this because she had a lengthy list of intentions and was guided to initiate the healing well before the ceremony.  She wanted to SERVE the ceremony vs the ceremony serving her.

What Rev. Denise discovered was that nearly 85% of her healing intentions were resolved before landing in Peru a year later.  The remaining 15+% was in the life-changing experience she had in the 3 ceremonies she attended in Peru.  Because so much legwork in her healing was done ahead of time, her exterior life had already changed dramatically.  This enabled her to ease into a new life already awaiting her new self upon her return.

Rev. Denise understood how unusual her preparation process was, and was so grateful she listened to Madre Ayahuasca’s sage guidance.  She watched those she was in ceremony with go into full tilt crisis trying to integrate the Medicine after their experience – and there was little to no assistance once they returned home.  They had to find their own ways via trial and error.  It was a traumatic experience for most.

Since her work with Mama Ayahuasca in 2012, Rev. Denise has worked with Her Spirit in all the healing ceremonies for hundreds of individuals and groups.  She’s experienced first-hand the power of the Spirit of Ayahuasca not just for herself, but for her clients and students as well.
