More coming soon!

Three reasons not to miss AYA2019
An inner search for a better world
The third World Ayahuasca Conference will explore how ayahuasca practices have impacts not only on individuals, but also on communities, societies, and this planet we call home.
The true potential offered by these sacred plants is in the possibility of transforming individual and community healing into service for the world. AYA2019 will unite us around a common vision – to build a sustainable future for plants, people and the planet.
Over the three-day conference and ancillary events, participants will connect with each other, engage in dialogue, listen to inspirational speakers, and enjoy art, food, and music together. We look forward to seeing you in Girona!

With its gastronomical delights and numerous cultural activities, Girona is the perfect setting for welcoming the diversity of attendees that will come together for the conference.
