The 2-day program has three core objectives:
- To allow individuals to take a step back from work and life and release negative emotions from the past to find more peace

What the Amazonian process will help you with
- Familiar conflicts you want to resolve
- Resolve Emotional Blockages
- Eliminate Fear / Anxiety
- Work through addiction problems
The retreat starts with a seminar by Raf Adams, author of The Suited Monk (El Monje Con Traje) to help participants reflect and gain clarity about the bigger picture of their life journey. Raf will introduce his concept of the Gap Model and Life Journey Model, which shows why we suffer in life and provide practical solutions on how to close the Gap within oneself.
After the workshop, there will be vegetarian lunch. In the afternoon we start with a mindful walk in the mountains to help us gain awareness about our inner self, connect with nature and connect with the other participants.
We will have a light meal at 5pm and personal time until we start with the Amazonian Process at 7pm until late night.
The next day is focused on integration and share our learning with other participants as well as take action steps from the insights gained during the Amazonion process and the seminar.
What is the Amazonian Emotional Process (AEP)?
The Amazonian Emotional Process uses ayahuasca, a liquid produced by Amazonian plants, for therapeutic purposes.
When ingested, the plant activates areas within the brain related to memory and awareness of emotions. Ayahuasca is considered a sacred drink by innumerable indigenous Amazonian groups and is a common medicine in much of South America. The traditional and modern use of ayahuasca extends from Panama to Bolivia, including Peru, Ecuador and Colombia.
The use of ayahuasca is also legally protected and regulated in Holland, Canada, and the United States and consuming it for healing purposes has expanded internationally into several European, American and Asian countries.
What is the Suited Monk
Many people are successful externally (Suit), they are smart, fast thinking, logical and often successful in their career. However not
all of them feel fulfilment, purpose and happiness on a daily basis. They struggle with feelings of self-doubt, giving ownership, to be non-judgmental, to listen actively and be true to themselves (Monk). As a result, it affects the persons personal happiness and realization of their true potential.
The Suited Monk helps those people to identify the GAP between their external and internal self in their life and leadership. They then go through an intensive practical self-awareness program to close their GAP. This will result in a happier life and better leadership.
The Suited Monk has been offered in Asia for 10 years for both Fortune 500 corporations as well as individuals on their life journey.
What should I expect?
Every Amazonian Process is different, both for different participants and individually. The experience will be ineffable, beyond
language, and you will likely find that trying to put it into words after the process has ended will be daunting if not impossible.
“Ten years of therapy downloaded in a night,” seems to be a fairly universal analogy to convey the possible takeaway from a process.
People who have consumed ayahuasca report having revelations regarding their purpose on earth, the true nature of the universe as well as deep insights into how to be the best person they possibly can. This is viewed by many as an awakening and what is often described as a rebirth. In addition, it is often reported that individuals feel they gain access to higher dimensions.
Although these are common experiences, it is highly recommended that participants avoid trying to control their journey with expectations. Rather, we urge you to be open and present throughout the experience and understand that the Amazonian Emotional Process is not about control, but rather about letting go of current and past conflicts.
During the process, the focus is on gaining knowledge through intuition rather than logic and increasing your level of self-reflection, creative thinking, and emotional redemption.
Some therapeutic benefits from Ayahuasca:
Ayahuasca targets regions of the brain that are associated with emotion processing and motivation. In several small-scale clinical studies, ayahuasca helped with depression and anxiety, including recurrent cases. It has rapid and sustained anti-depressive effects.
Through a therapeutic approach, the emphasis is on the induction of an introspective dream-like experience characterized by visions, and autobiographic and emotional memories which increase mindfulness capacities as well as intellectual and spiritual
The level of self-reflection, reminiscence, ethical sensation, prosocial behavior, creative thinking, and redemption can be increased or elicited during the experiences. Various psychological blockages and denials may enter awareness and become illuminated from multiple perspectives allowing the participants to gain insight into their maladaptive behavioral, emotional and/or cognitive patterns.
These psychodynamic contents are often accompanied by an enhanced internal moral attitude that forces the participants to face their deep thoughts and emotions that confront them with earlier wrongdoings, self-deceptions, and lies. Repressed memories can surface causing emotional catharsis and opening the way to abreaction, relief, and remission.
Before the Amazonian Emotional Process, it is important to reflect on and allow yourself to feel and listen to what your purpose might be. What brings you to this process? What is it you hope to achieve?
For example: resolve emotional issues in relationship the family, release negative emotions, work through addictions,….
Because of the deep intense personal experience (often emotional) participants will go through, participants are not allowed to share or post experiences from other participants without their approval.
We take your safety and your health very seriously, so please let your facilitator know of any medications you are taking, whatever they may be.
It is very important during the Suited Monk Amazonian Process to be in a safe and comfortable environment to do deep inner work. We have booked https://www.hortdelariera.com/ to create a safe space to go through the process.
