Meriana Dinkova MFT (Lic#45696), is a San Francisco-based psychotherapist, workshop facilitator and retreat organizer. She has developed a unique system of psychological and neo-shamanistic inner-space navigation tools, designed to teach people to navigate and integrate strong psychedelic experiences, especially Ayahuasca. It is designed to optimize the healing, insight and spiritual growth they can provide and is especially valuable for anyone experiencing the medicine for the first time.
She organizes Ayahuasca retreats to Peru, in which she combines her work with the Medicine work of experienced shamans. During those retreats she works with different yoga teachers.
She gives lectures and teaches workshops in the US and around the world, speaking about her system, ‘Navigating Altered States,’ 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 and the Envision Festival in Costa Rica.
For people, who want to learn her system, but can not make it to one of her retreats, Meriana also offers Skype sessions on preparation and integration for working with Ayahuasca and other plant teachers. For more info about her upcoming Peru retreats go to:
