What we're about

Welcome to SociaLAnxiety Recovery Group

As the Organizer of this group, I took over in March of 2017. I am blessed and grateful to be the organizer of this amazing group.

One thing I can tell you. I have overcome anxiety naturally, using the techniques that I WILL be sharing with you in the group. These techniques have worked for me, and thousands of clients around the country, and around the world, including some of the most well known teacher and celebrities in the world.

In all of this healing we have offered and shared over the years, we haven't gotten rich, believe me. That's not what this work is about. It's not an ongoing therapy, or a co-dependence of any kind. But it's about releasing blocks, and connecting with your personal empowerment and creative vision for your life. It's about miracles, too.

As an Energy Healer, specializing in Emotional Healing for the last 20 years, and also as a student, client, and representative for James Hyman over the last 20 years, I can tell you that his work has helped thousands of people to quickly overcome the deepest of emotional wounds, negative patterns, and blocked energy. I don't share this lightly, but because it is one of my primary missions in life to share it. I have been a witness to it.

On my own, and with the help of healers and shamans like Jim along the way, I have developed my own form of knowledge and wisdom, and I believe this group is a good format for me to share. When the previous Organizer gave this group up, he said he felt it was time for new energy. That's what I'm bringing to this group, and I hope the world. A profound healing energy, that, until they awaken a little, is beyond the scope of what they even believe possible. I know that it's possible, because I've witnessed these "miracles", many, many times.

God bless, and welcome to the group.

The MEDICINE SHAMANS: Don Augustin is considered a ‘miracle healer’, since he cures people of all kinds of difficult illness like cancer and diabetes using plant medicine. He is a Banco Curandero, the highest level there is here.The term ‘banco’ refers to curandero who has mastered Ayahuasca shamanism at the highest level. There are only a handful of curanderos who reach the ‘banco’ level and Don Augustin is among few living in this day and time. He has been taught many Icaros and Mariris from the spirits of many plants and ancient shamans, and has acquired the “Yachay”, or magical phlegm, that Amazonian shamans use for extracting harm from people, and as spirit-helpers. Borka Cafuk specializes in treating energetic disorders, removing intrusive energies and entities from one’s physical and energetic body, which, when left undiagnosed and untreated lead to depression, anxiety, addictions and physical conditions. They can attach to us through personal or ancestral trauma. Signs of intrusive energies or entities include: acute or chronic localized pain or discomfort; Addictions; Panic attacks, depression, inexplicable losses of energy, compulsive behaviors, mgraines, memory loss without medical explanation; hearing voices, (especially if the voices are being contemptuous, and telling you to do things you would not normally do), feeling that there are energies surrounding you or inside of you which are not yours and are affecting your life in a negative way, etc. KUCHO is living the proposal of his soul. He was born in the city of Cusco and Machu Picchu. He has received great initiation of Apu Machu Picchu to raise the cosmic consciousness of humanity and to purify and regenerate the Earth, known in the Andes as the new transformation– Great Pachakuteq. Communicating with the spirit, it’s in his commitment to provide the highest level knowledge in the Andean tradition and offer sacred journeys with integrity and safety. Kucho, Juan de Dios, receives the energy and power of the white city of Machu Picchu glass, Heart of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Mountain coca leaf. He communicates with the spirit of the ancestors through symbols, signs and sacred geometry of the temples and Wakas. (Sacred sites) Kucho will offer a Coca Leaf Reading and physical body Purifications– emotional, mental, and spiritual. THE FACILITATORS: MERIANA DINKOVA is a San Francisco and Los Angeles based psychotherapist (MFT#45696), Life Coach, speaker, and Ayahuasca retreat organizer/facilitator. She has created a comprehensive system of psychological and neo-shamanistic tools, designed to assist with the navigation and integration of non-ordinary states of consciousness in general, and with the Ayahuasca experience in particular. Meriana developed an innovative system over the past 20 years– through working with the plant medicine, while studying and practicing a wide variety of psychotherapeutic methods and transformational modalities. Additionally, her teachings are informed by the many years that she spent immersed in the transpersonal teachings of different non-dualistic spiritual teachers, and through the practice of a wide variety of meditation methods. Meriana’s unique system can be helpful for just about everyone, and her guidance can make a world of difference for people who are drinking ayahuasca for the first time. She organizes Ayahuasca retreats to Peru, in which she combines her framework with the medicine work of experienced shamans. Meriana gives lectures and teaches workshops in the US and around the world, sharing the system she has developed at conferences and festivals, including the International Amazonian Shamanism Conference in Peru, the Women’s Visionary Congress in California, the Breaking Convention in London, the Tantra Festival in Hawaii, the Envision festival in Costa Rica, Burning Man and others. JAMES HYMAN is a Los Angeles and San Francisco and based shamanic healer, and founder of Deep Emotional Release Bodywork who is uniquely qualified to assist Meriana in facilitating this journey.

Between and after the ceremonies Meriana and James will be offering workshops and meditations designed to support you in different aspects of your personal process and to help you integrate what you have learned on a deep level that supports ever-lasting change. Working in this way and getting the opportunity for individual diagnosis and consultations with each of the different shamans over the course of the retreat will help you open more and more to the transformational powers of the medicine, remove emotional and ancestral blockages, deepen your sense of purpose and activate your own shamanic power.

It has a maloca for the ceremonies and a swimming pool for the hot weather during the day:) Each tambo/bungalow has its own bathroom and shower.
