AYA2016 | OCTOBER 17-22. RIO BRANCO, BRAZIL
Two years after the first World Ayahuasca Conference, held in Ibiza (Spain), we now take on the next challenge – that of bringing the international ayahuasca community together in Rio Branco to further the spirit of the dialogue and exchange of knowledge and experience initiated in the first edition.
About 9,000 km of land and water separates Ibiza from Rio Branco, the capital of Acre, in the Brazilian Amazon. This special location will offer people attending the event the opportunity to experience one of the world’s ayahuasca epicenters –an ideal place to honor the diversity of ayahuasca culture and practices. With the rapid globalization of ayahuasca use, dialogue about cultural recognition and the protection of traditional practices worldwide is now more important than ever.
In this spirit, ICEERS Foundation and our many individual and organizational supporters are working together to create a memorable experience for those joining us in Rio Branco. More than 100 speakers will share knowledge and expertise through presentations and cross-cultural roundtables, and participants will be have the opportunity to learn more about the diverse indigenous communities participating in the conference, and to take in film, music, art… and much more.
Conference content will be delivered in English, Portuguese and Spanish and simultaneous translation will be available in the main auditorium.
