The Santo Daime is a syncretic spiritual practice founded in the Brazilian Amazonic state of Acre in the 1930’s by Raimundo Irineu Serra, known as Mestre Irineu. The Santo Daime is syncretic, in that it incorporates elements of several religious or spiritual traditions, including; Christianity, South American Shamanism, African Animism, Kardec Spiritism and Eastern transcendental wisdom. Central to the Santo Daime practice is the sacrament taken in spiritual rituals, known as Works, which is also known as Santo Daime. The Santo Daime became a worldwide movement in the 1990’s, and currently has an international presence.
The mission of Céu do Montreal is to uphold the central tenets of the Santo Daime. The intent of Ceu do Montreal is to provide for transformation and evolution of all persons seeking enlightenment in communion with Divine Creator Consciousness through the use of the entheogen Santo Daime in the rituals known as Works. The rituals are called “Works” because through them we believe Initiates have the conscious responsibility for correcting personal flaws and transforming themselves during the spiritual services.
Although all are welcome to participate in the rituals for the gaining of truth, knowledge, and self-transformation, proselytizing is strictly forbidden. Membership in the Santo Daime is gained only upon the serious request of the participant.
The responsibility of members of Céu do Montréal is to live the teachings of the Hymns and Tenets, love the Divine Creator, love the Earth, love all beings in creation including oneself, love and respect all brothers and sisters, accept the truth of one’s divinity and one’s faults, and learn to embody forgiveness, compassion, and humility.
