Pre- & Post-Dieta
The most important aspects of the master plant dieta are the pre- and post-dieta. Which consist in a restricted diet and abstaining from specific activities to prepare for the powerful energetic work to be done and allow it to root effectively.
When planting a seed to grow a healthy plant, it is necessary to prepare the soil; to remove impurities and nurture it with nutrients. The pre-dieta will allow you to prepare your own inner soil so that your plant can engage with you physically, mentally and emotionally. The post-dieta will allow your plant to grow strong roots.
Preparation & Completion
Committing to your preparation and completion with the pre- and post-dieta preparations and integration is of the uppermost importance. The pre-dieta will not only initiates the cleansing of your mind and body, but also focus your energy as well as transmits to the spirit of the plants your intention, commitment and respect.
The post-dieta is the most important part of the process, more then the dieta itself. It is during that time or after that you will start to witness the benefits of the work you have done. During that integration time the healing energy of the plants, ayahuasca, and the energetic vibrations the maestros have imprinted in you will keep on cleansing you, healing you and blossom.
We encourage you to seek loving and nurturing environments pre- and post-dieta; to engage as often as possible with loving thoughts and actions, and to see any challenges that may arise from the dietary and sexual restrictions as part of the healing and gift to yourself. Most importantly, have faith, trust, practice positive mind sets and relax.
A dieta is a commitment and a responsibility, not only to the plant but also to yourself. It cultivates a spiritual, and often an emotional bond between you and the plant spirit, and just like any relationship it takes nurturing, dedication, respect, honesty and ultimately, love, for it to thrive and grow to its fullest potential.
Your relationship with your plant
The journey with the plant spirit begins long before your stay with us, as the plants are already connected to you. They will start to test you months before and sometimes to manifest themselves years before. In many cases, they stay with you for life. The more care and attention you give to this relationship, the stronger and deeper the bond, the clearer the wisdom and easier it will be to integrate within.
The path of the dieter is dotted with testing. That is the way of the plants to teach and heal, to find out who you are, get to know your heart, what is your intention as you approach them, how strong is your commitment, motivation and dedication, and how sincere your search for healing and learning.
The plants will test you
The tests will start from the moment you decide to do a dieta and will present themselves in many ways. Trough your relations with your family, someone in the street, the application and registration process, the flight attendants during your trip, the facilitators, the maestros, your fellow dieters, a mosquito…It is good to remind yourself all along the way that; “Everything is a test!”, observe the feeling the situation brings up for you, breath and relax.
The most important to remember when you are being tested is not to react. Sometimes anger, frustration, confusion…comes up for the purpose of healing. It is ok to feel what you feel, but reacting to it, getting angry, prior to the dieta, may indicate that you need to be more prepared. During the dieta and the post-dieta, it will make you cross your dieta. Crossing the dieta means shifting the energies and the alignment of the work in process, which will be harmful to you.
Plants are extremely demanding, they commend respect and humility when approaching them. It is especially important during the dieta and the post-dieta. That is why you need to know that you are prepared for a dieta, we will help you to see this during your application process. Once you pass the tests, which we will help you with during your dieta, incredible rewards will come on your path that will transform your life beyond imagination.

The consequences for breaking post-dieta restrictions can range from discomfort to endangering your health; physically, mentally and emotionally, as well as affecting the Maestros’s health. When post-dieta restrictions are not respected chaos can enter a participant’s life; illnesses, accidents, emotional and mental confusion, and a general lack of clarity in daily life and relationships. We share this to be transparent and highlight the importance of dedication and respect to this journey. When you complete a dieta you have been thoroughly cleansed within and energetically aligned to your soul’s path, but the responsibility for this energetic work to flourish and thrive rests with each individual guest.
