Post Initiation Integration


We hope the Curandero Initiation Course was a profound and memorable experience for you. It is just the beginning of a journey that has no end, always bringing new lessons, new challenges, new insights, and new blessings around each bend and over each obstacle. Sometimes, it can be very helpful to connect with someone who knows the path you’re walking, to share your experiences and receive guidance that can boost your confidence moving forward, and bring to your attention aspects of the journey that may not be obvious to you yet. Some of these aspects may include:

  • Learning to protect and strengthen your dietas
  • Moving forward with new dietas
  • Deepening the power and control of your icaros
  • Working with other important plant medicines
  • Combining practices from other traditions or ancestries
  • Offering services and treatments to others
  • Planning for the future

More than answering questions, a counseling session provides a real connection with someone who has not only studied the ayahuasca tradition and understands the complexities of the healing process on a deep and insightful level, but who also leads ceremonies, provides treatment, and works with plant medicine on a continuously deeper level. There are not many people who can provide such guidance, but thankfully, there are a few…


Keyo began working for the Ayahuasca Foundation in 2011, assisting Carlos Tanner with retreats and courses. He and Yasueri began working together in 2016 facilitating the initiation courses at Inkan Kena.  They not only improved the course tremendously, but they also assisted in training and counseling the facilitators to improve their understanding and skill in managing the groups of students for courses and retreats offered at the Ayahuasca Foundation. Along the way, they became more than just co-workers. They fell in love, got married at the Riosbo Retreat & Research Center, and recently had their first child. They left the AF and started their own venture, Noya Botanicals, and more recently Yasueri started a counseling service called Plant Dieta Integration. Her insights and guidance for moving forward after the initiation course are incredibly valuable.
