Testimonials

What our guests are saying

Your safety, transformation and experience is our top priority.

  • We can't say enough about Bram. The knowledge of working with this medicine is excellent. I've sat with a number of other groups over the last 18 years and they provide a safe and healthy container for anyone's journey. Highly recommended.

    Paul & Heather C.

    I have been doing medicine (Aya and Dieta) work with Bram for almost five years. It has been life changing. To have such a gifted Shaman helping you along your own personal, spiritual path in life is a true gift and blessing. Once you find the right mechanic or barber in life you don't want to change. It just works. That is Bram.

    This was one of the best experiences of my life!! I've been to many places around the world, but working with Bram is something special. If you're looking for an awesome time with great people, this is it. I learned so much about my self in such a small amount of time & the learning keeps going. I am definitely sticking with Bram & not going anywhere else!! Seriously blessed.

    One of the most magical experiences of my life… I can not speak highly enough when it comes to the experience I recently had… Words don't quite do it! What I can say is, since leaving, I can't stop raving about these awesome humans and the magical space they create and hold for retreat guests. I felt safe, cared for, respected, nurtured and able to be totally open and vulnerable. I can not recommend highly enough.

    Great for beginners, even better for the experienced-

    I've sat with Bram 9 times now. I'm looking forward to my next retreat. If for no other reason, I choose to sit with them because they put my safety and health first. I've experienced profound personal insights during their ceremonies.

    Ryan E.

    The space that Bram holds in the medicine is second to none. Knowing that you are safe and taken care of is of the utmost importance in ceremony, and even when I am on the struggle bus in ceremony, I know ultimately that everything is going to be all right because of the care and reverence that Bram has for the ceremony space. His energy work is also amazing! He is so great at identifying patterns and helping to cut ties with energies that are no longer serving you.
