Important Program Notes from Dan Reynolds

Jaguar Shaman



“Every ceremony is a divinely orchestrated dance with mystical agents of healing and transformation.”



Thank you for visiting Dawn of Eden online. My shamanic colleague, Denis Montes, and I are pleased to have the honor of presenting information relative to the Egyptian deities and their celestial initiative, the Dawn of Eden Project. We are genuinely grateful for our anointed roles in this human/spirit collaboration to include the opportunity we’ve been given to make the acquaintance of some truly exceptional people who have participated in our work.

We customarily tip our hats to “first-timers” who join us in ceremony as it takes a certain amount of courage to step into the unknown. Medicine work can, on occasion, be challenging, but the benefits far outweigh any temporary discomfort one might encounter. Without question, Ayahuasca is the proverbial “Fast Track” when it comes to achieving spiritual growth. If you wish to deepen your connection to Spirit and feel you are being called to experience the medicine, we encourage you to go ahead and step into the unknown. Your courage in doing so will be greatly rewarded.

With regard to our Ayahuasca retreats, we wish to make it clear that we are not a commercial organization, and we are not affiliated, in any way, with what’s currently referred to as “Ayahuasca Tourism.” Dawn of Eden’s® programs are about serious transformational work tailored to individuals who desire a greater alignment with their authentic-self and to those awakening to a higher purpose in service to humanity.




Dawn of Eden® participants are greeted at the airport and transported to the center where they are introduced to the sacred energies of the temple grounds. For those who might wish to see some interesting sites in and around Iquitos during their program, some inexpensive outings will be made available. These outings are optional. The center is like an oasis of transformational energies and participants are typically eager to spend as much time as possible sheltered within the beneficial influence of these energies. Wholesome, affordable, meals are served at the sanctuary, but participants may also choose to dine at the Dawn on the Amazon restaurant for a change of venue.

Individuals with iPhones or laptops have access to Wi-Fi throughout the sanctuary. All rooms are air-conditioned and equipped with a 32-inch monitor should you wish to connect a laptop. Direct TV is also available in all rooms.  



Dawn of Eden’s Internet Café (next door to the center) receives energy and protection from the deities as well for those who are not traveling with a computer or iPhone.  


Our ceremonial temple’s size is ideal for individuals who prefer a deep immersion in the work.




Working with the traditional medicine-plant Ayahuasca is about healing and personal transformation. For this to take place in a desirable fashion, one’s body needs ample opportunity for rest and recuperation between ceremonies. Additionally, one needs time to integrate (mentally and emotionally) what has transpired from one ceremony to the next. This is especially true when engaging work at the level one encounters at Dawn of Eden®. For this reason, Dawn of Eden’s program schedule is restricted to two ceremonies per week, the first ceremony being on Tuesday, the second on Friday. This allows sufficient time for rest, recuperation and integration between works. The choice of these two ceremonial days is not by chance. In shamanic circles, Tuesdays and Fridays have long been known as the optimal days to have a connection with Spirit.


Exercise is encouraged, and a daily workout is possible for those interested as gym equipment is available onsite. Alternatively, it’s possible to take a walk in the nearby Plaza Munich located just one block from the center. Yoga is also encouraged. Those interested may wish to bring a yoga mat. We are frequently in need of operational supplies such as premium incense, incense charcoals, etc. If it’s possible you can bring a small item or two when traveling to Iquitos, please let us know. We will arrange to have the item we need sent to you before your departure. Your assistance in this area would be greatly appreciated.


Denis and I are deeply gratified to share our work in the ancient shamanic arts. Every ceremony is a divinely orchestrated dance with mystical agents of healing and transformation. Perhaps you will be joining us going forward.
