February 12, 13 & 14, 2021
The Arizona Yagé Assembly (A.Y.A.) is gathering in Oracle, Arizona for three nights:
Friday, February 12th, Saturday, February 13th, and Sunday, February 14th, 2021.
We hope you can join us and share sacred space with us.
The main purpose of our ceremonies is to further develop a deeper and more conscious relationship with the divine spirit, and to look for better and healthier ways to live and relate to self, family, and community. Therefore, it’s essential that you bring your own purposeful intention with you to ceremony.
These ceremonies will be held indoors at a lovely retreat center located in the hills of Oracle, AZ (just outside of Tucson, AZ). We'll gather together in groups of 25-30 participants for each ceremony. Dates fill quickly. If the date you're interested in fills up, please visit our website at www.aya.guide to see if there are additional ceremony dates that may work for you.
There are a few things to keep in mind before signing up: If you have a heart condition or chronic high-blood pressure, you cannot participate in ceremony. Certain drugs, herbs, and medications have also been found to be incompatible with ayahuasca. We've found Ayahuasca Forums a helpful site to review for interaction safety guidelines. If you've been on anti-depressants recently, you'll need to have been off of them for 8 weeks before participating in ceremony. Anti-hypertensive medications must also be completely out of your system in order to safely participate in ceremony. We advise that you give your system sufficient time for the removal of any incompatible substances from your body before attending ceremony. Major health conditions may require special attention, so please feel free to contact us by phone or email if you have any questions or concerns in this regard.
You will find a button at the bottom of this page if you would like to register for this ceremony weekend. After we receive and review your A.Y.A. Ceremony Registration Form, you will be emailed and provided with links to fill out your A.Y.A. Health Form, A.Y.A. Ceremony Questionnaire, and to provide your donation for ceremony. Each ceremony participant will need to fill out their own health form and questionnaire for review.
No news is good news! Once you have submitted your health form, your questionnaire, and have provided your ceremony donation, your registration will be considered complete and you won't hear back from us until closer to your ceremony weekend (unless we need more information from you or need to check in with you about something that you reported to us). Leading up to your ceremony weekend, we will send out a packing list with additional information so you will know what to bring with you. An email containing the ceremony location and any applicable driving directions will be sent approximately two or three days prior to your ceremony weekend.
Ceremony Preparation: In seeking help, guidance, healing, and learning, it is important for you to establish a clear intention and purpose for attending ceremony. It’s important to be in the best possible disposition for the event. There are some basic dietary restrictions and other guidelines to adhere to at least five days prior to the event. A link to our AYA Ceremony Preparation Guidelines document is provided to help prepare yourself for ceremony.
Meals, Lodging, & Accommodations: In the spirit of a retreat, meals and lodging will be provided to all attendees--and we'd encourage you to sign up for two or more evenings with us, if you can, in order to deepen your experience and enjoy the atmosphere of community throughout the weekend.
