Santo Daime
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.

Single Sacrament
Please note that Céu do Montreal is a single Sacrament church and does not tolerate the use of any substances before, during or after a Spiritual Service. We ask all attendees to respect the direction of Mestre Irineu who advised mindfulness and abstention regarding diet and habits during the three days before and three days after the Works.

Ayahuasca Awakening, A Guide to Self-Discovery, Self-Mastery and Self-Care Volume One and Volume Two

We are in the middle of what appears to be a global awakening of consciousness, and there seems to be little knowledge available for those wishing to understand the “territory” of the self, the energetic, transpersonal realms, and how to wisely manage care of body, soul, and spirit along the way.

Ayahuasca Awakening, A Guide to Self-Discovery, Self-Mastery and Self-Care, Volumes One and Two, were written in response to frequent requests for me to put into a “guidebook” the theories and concepts that I teach. It is my sincere hope that these books will provide readers with the information they need to navigate their personal journey of self-discovery. Jessica Rochester D.Div. March 4, 2022

Volume One: Self-Discovery and Self-Mastery explores the mystery of incarnation, the “maps” of the self, emerging paradigms of consciousness, the role of the Light and shadow in spiritual development, cycles of change, mediumship, the power of the will and restoring authenticity.


Volume Two: Self-Care and The Circle of Wholeness presents the four-fold practice of self-care; the principles of self-awareness, self-love, self-respect, and self-responsibility. This volume describes in detail how the practice of these four principles can assist in achieving and maintaining greater health and well-being on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, creative, and spiritual. The reader is invited to walk the Circle of Wholeness, discovering the body/mind/soul connection to nature, the environment and community as well as learning how healthy habits, wholesome lifestyle patterns, interpersonal relationships, and everyday choices can enhance well-being.
