Attila Akat @ The Sanctuary 1860 Ayahuasca Retreat Portugalattila akat, alexandra akat, threatening court witnesses, lies, helping substance trafficker to jump police bail

M Aug 04, 2018 Review updated:

THREATS TO COURT WITNESSES. In a serious matter with Attila Akat and Alexandra Akat, they helped a family member facing trial for the trafficking in 14 kilos of cannabis to evade justice and jump bail. That is not all either.

Also, the same individual was one of their core Ayahuasca facilitators and he threatened to murder someone blaming him as a police informant on the cannabis found, when he was not. When that person was threatened with murder and subjected to disgusting abuse by the family, then he talked to the police. It was because he was told he could be caused a hospital visit, be put in a wheelchair, and was a (censor) and a (censor). The rest of the family all joined in the mockery of that individuals because they did not want to take responsibility for the choices in their lives.

For the Akats, that was to leave America behind and a high paying job. They wrote about how corporate US was a big lie, how sales work meant lying to customers, they were disillusioned with the work, and big salaries, and nice cars. So they left it all behind to get involved in a close family run Ayahuasca and cannabis operation in central Portugal known as The Sanctuary 1860.

Many of them had backgrounds in the Holland Santo Daime, which was criminalized by a Dutch Court in 2018 making the transportation and distribution of Santo Daime a criminal offence. Because the Portuguese police in 2016 busted the brother in law, and sister of the Akats and found a cannabis farm, they thought it was not their fault.

They, meaning all the family, decided to blame a Spiritual Guru, who incidently foresaw fires. Every time the family mocked him, blaming him as the informant and calling him a (censor), a (censor) and should feel fear or expect to be finished off, (censor), (censor) or (censor), he saw fires destroying the centres of the mockers in visions.

Months later, they were destroyed by fire in what became known as The Santo Daime Catastrophe.

Alexandra Akat claimed the witness was a liar, lied on Go Fund me, lied elsewhere, to make false trails for a criminal to jump bail before anyone realized. There is proof.

She lied and said she never supported the actions in a plea to the Court witness to leave the Akat's out of it, but they were heavily involved, supported the abuse, blessing it, which in part, explains why they made a heavy loss in the fire and became permanently closed.

Alexandra Akat became agitated in May 2018 because it is assumed Attila Akat came back from Hawaii after being separated from Alexandra, his wife, for some months, and found no work. He was looking for paradise. On the day he came back as per Instagram and in the following days, both of the Akats threatened a witness to the Court, because a Court hearing was scheduled. It happened in June 2018 and the witness had to testify about malicious abuse and death threats from the Akats and others. In May 2018 Alexandra Akat and Attila Akat pretended to be the one who jumped bail, with their help, and claimed the witness would be (censored) and was (censor) and a (censor) of (censor).

The one that actually threatened the witness with murder, because of a strange metaphysical scenario, actually became absolved of karma and absonded from bail, and Court proceedings, to find happiness elsewhere doing (redacted) with (redacted).

But those that helped him took the karma of his actions, his pain and fear, and rage. It was because the Akats thought a (censor) was a (censor) and (censor), because they joined in the abuse as shamans, they took the energy and became filled with the inexplicable rage that originally consumed the one arrested with all the cannabis.

The Akats were offered an opportunity to be sorry and move forward and instead just spouted lies, trying to malign a police witness, claiming he would be finished off, (censor) and (censor). It is because they played the victim card, portraying themselves as victims to so called abuse, but they were the abusers, the ones dealing in substances and involved in threatening people with violence, and then pathologically lying about it after.

The police got involved and it is averted the Court injuncted them, as they stopped the abuse. But those looking to employ Attila Akat, or US Immigration, or indeed others doing background checks should know he has taking responsibility issues, does not tell the truth, cannot face up to his shortcomings, and WAS involved in helping a substance trafficker to jump bail and DID threaten police witnesses and NEVER apologized.

That is the truth, these people do not take responsibility and are dishonourable, they got involved in substance dealing, it went wrong, they have to deal with it and learn from their mistakes and to stop blaming other people for their mistakes.

    Attila and Alexandra Akat are liars. The truth is he was named in many police reports after his brother in law threatened to kill a police witness. Attila Akat once worked in corporate America in marketing.

    He appears to have become disillusioned with that work, making these comments on May 4th 2017 on his website associated with Sanctuary 1860, an Ayahuasca retreat centre offering Ayahuasca retreats until it burned down last year :-

    In my many years in the corporate world changing jobs and positions from one company to the next, I experienced this exact feeling of "circus without a purpose" each day, every year.

    It is not about the title, the size of office, the company car and any other materialistic things they give you to be a slave of the system. If there is NO PURPOSE or even living a lie by focusing on profit and sales growth each year, by squeezing partners and at the end telling consumers wrong things, then the daily circus is complete.

    Don't be a part of this circus any more. Create your own circus with a CLEAR PURPOSE.

    Live from the heart NOT from the mind.

    He also abandoned a six figure salary and a life in the USA, presumably on a Green Card and left it sometime in 2016 to live with his brother in law and sister in law. He left the USA with the Akats to start a family run Ayahuasca business which involved his brother in law producing large amounts of cannabis.

    On November 10th 2016 he, Johannes Maasland, the brother in law, was arrested with the substance. 14 kilos were found and LSD also, as well as the equipment to make cannabis oil.

    Attila's brother in law then proceeded to claim that the Complainant, as well as a Plantiff in a lawsuit being prepared against the Akats by Court Prosecutors, was a police informant and turned up at the doorstep of his house on January 23rd 2017 and threatened to murder him.

    Johannes then began to post defamation on the internet, whist on police bail, claiming he was mentally ill, should be afraid and would be killed before the police could do anything. Alexandra Akat was also found to have incited malicious defamation, spreading statements around that the Plaintiff was a liar.

    The brother in law involved in the defamation mocked the Plaintiff and asked for more blogs to be posted, which counts as consent to the publications and a defence to a claim for damages from the Akats.

    Other defences to the publications include statements made in self defence, truth and qualified privilege, as well as honest opinion and fair comments.

    The Plaintiff was called to the police station to give a statement, upon which the police queried the role of the Akats in the trafficking in substances.

    The police then added the Akats to the police file, and later, commenced Court Proceedings against the Akats for harassment of trial witnesses.

    The Akats were never blackmailed for Euro 100000 as they claim, but they were served by registered mail a claim for legal damages in which it was clearly explained the comments or reviews could never be removed.

    Attila has twisted the truth around in an attempt to portray the Plantiff as the cause of his professional downfall, and mistakes in judgment. It is because he partnered up with a family member taking stupid risks, cannabis farming on land, he knew about it, but left his life in the US anyway to get involved with the operation.

    The claim for damages suggested the Akat's sign an undertaking to cease further harassment of the witness, their response in August 2017 was to have a family representative threaten to murder him, saying the police would not be able to help.

    In any case, in August 2017, the Akat's ignored the damages bill, the response was to presumably incite the brother in law facing trial for trafficking charges to post that the Plaintiff would be killed before the police could help because that is what happened.

    The Akat's denied involvement with the brother in law but their social media profiles and other evidence show otherwise, only parting ways in October 2017, after allowing him, their business associate, to post abuse and mockery of the complainant on the internet, with Alexandra Akat joining in.

    In May 2018 Alexandra Akat posted comments on some other sites claiming blogs would be made citing the Plaintiff as of a sick mind if he did not remove the postings, which they cannot be, and threatened to denounce him to the UK Police.

    That did not work as the UK police already knew about the problems, because they queried the role of Adrian Freedman in trafficking in Santo Daime in Portugal and the UK, because he was arrested in 2010 with the substance.

    In May 2018, the Akats sent messages implying that the Plaintiff would be removed from his house and 'finished off'. They tried to pretend some of the comments came from the brother in law by pretending to be a 'big friend' but he turned out to be happy in (censor) and did not have a motive, but the Akat's did because Attila could not find work in Hawaii.

    It is averred Attila Akat wants to return to the corporate life in the USA and procure employment. The Akats announced an intention to set up an Ayahuasca centre in the USA, but Ayahuasca is Schedule 1 prohibited. They have also been out of the USA two years which counts as abandoning a green card. It is averred the Akats, facing trial for harassment of Court Witnesses to substance trafficking by members of his family, who he partnered up with to run Ayahuasca retreats, want to return to the USA and find new work.

    Perhaps in desperation they thought mocking the Plaintiff and labelling him of an evil mind would make him remove the postings but it did not work. That was in response to an offer to make peace and settle the damages informally, which constitutes restitution under Portuguese law. The response of the Akats was to post further abuse, labelling the Plaintiff sick.

    The police and prosecution were informed. It is the truth Attila Akat and Alexandra Akat face Tribunal and are named in police reports. US Immigration should ask to see police reports from Portugal in any visa application.

    It is fair comment that had they condemned the death threats and resolved the problems last year, they may have been able to move forward. But threatening a Court Witness with being 'finished off' and labelled of a 'sick mind' days before a Court case does not bode well.

    They took no steps to apologize for their roles and instead twist the truth around to portray the Court Witness as the evil doer, but it was the Akats that got involved in a shady Ayahuasca and cannabis trafficking operation. They were involved in inciting death threats against witnesses, the response when told, was to also join in the mockery, a matter that has brought them into professional disrepute.

    The wider Ayahuasca group turned on the Guru labelling him sick, evil, (censor), a peodophile, a (censor), a (censor), a (censor) and would be killed, murdered, hurt, sent to hospital and was threatened with being finished off.

    Settlement Agreement

    This Proposed Settlement Agreement (the “Agreement”) states proposed terms and conditions that would settle the dispute between REDACTED (the “Plaintiff”), and Earth Connection Portugal, Sanctuary 1860 Retreat - and their associates, directors, partners, spouses or employees (the “Defendants”).

    This settlement agreement, if agreeable to the Defendants and signed by a representative of them, and if settlement payment is made promptly by the specified date, settles all potential legal claims in relation to this incident of death threats:-

    On January 23rd 2017 between 8.15 - 8.45pm, (redacted) were visited by Johannes Maasland, retreat leader of Earth Connection Portugal and business partner of the Sanctuary 1860 Retreat.

    He made threats to kill if he found out that (redacted) told the police about his cannabis, which he did not. He was drunk and in an unpleasant, dark and abusive state. He claimed he had the power to put him in a wheelchair, be caused to go to hospital, or to be killed.

    The threats were uttered in front of a witness, and there was no doubt as to the intent of the threats, namely to cause fear that wrongly directed violent attack or reprisal may be possible.

    On the night of the incident, Johannes Maasland was associated with the Sanctuary 1860 Retreat Centre and clearly working for them as an Ayahuasca facilitator.

    The parties to be released from all liability clearly all had business interests with the individual Johannes Maasland and must share the detriment caused by such offences against a (redacted), including settlement for harm, damages, loss of income, time, expenses and for general distress caused to his (redacted) - a witness to the incident.

    WHEREAS, the Plaintiff and the Defendants agree to informally settle the matter to avoid formal litigation for damages as a result of the above conduct - namely that of making death threats as well as damages for malicious falsehood, defamation and criminal harassment done by the Defendant named Johannes Maasland with the blessing and support (to varying degrees) of the other defendants.

    NOW, THEREFORE, In consideration of the mutual covenants and promises made by the parties hereto, the Plaintiff and the Defendants (individually, each a “Party” and collectively, the (“Parties”) covenant and agree as follows:


    Upon the signing of this agreement by a representative of the named defendants and upon receipt of cleared payment of the proposed settlement amount by the date suggested, the Plaintiff agrees to release all of the named defendants and their associates from any civil claims in any jurisdiction, in regard to the threats, harassments and defamations made, either now, or in the future, and agrees the dispute is settled, on terms agreeable to him.
    All parties agree that this settlement agreement and its terms is private and confidential, and its details will be kept private, mainly to preserve the dignity of the defendants.

    The parties agree that this represents an appropriate, expedient, fair, constructive and reasonable proposal to settle the damages for the death threats, defamations, harassments and for losses of money/client income dealing with these matters.

    The Plaintiff agrees that the defendants agreement with this agreement combined with the receipt of the settlement payment constitutes a formal apology to him and (redacted) for being threatened with serious violence or death, and for the serious malicious defamations.

    The Plaintiff also agrees that the proposed private* and formal apologies settles any contentions about the ethics and integrity of the defendants and thus in essence grants them a forgiveness, a fresh slate and a blessing from (redacted) with regard to being ethically suited to engage in spiritual enterprises.

    The defendants agree to provide written apologies to (redacted) in order to assist in removing malicious defamation posted on the internet by Johannes Maasland, designed to harass and intimidate witnesses to a criminal trial.

    *Exception : The defendants agree that where (redacted) has been defamed maliciously, the letter will be posted showing the apology.


    The Plaintiff agrees that this informal settlement agreement, when agreed upon, signed and the settlement payment is made promptly in good faith - irrevocably releases and forever discharges the Defendants and all associates from any future claims arising from the Incidents complained of.


    In consideration for this settlement and release, the Defendants agree to pay promptly to the Plaintiff the sum of (as per settlement agreement) by bank transfer to this (redacted)

    As full payment for prompt settlement of the dispute and claims, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and as a donation to the work of (redacted), to compensate for the trouble caused in this matter.

    The payment reference must contain the word ‘Donation’.

    The Defendants also agree to sign a notarized letter confirming the donation to the work of (redacted), which will also unreservedly and sincerely apologize for the behaviours complained of.

    The defendants agree that the settlement payment does not include any kind of coaching, counselling or mentoring services of any kind under any circumstances whatsoever (including prison visits) and agree the payment not a payment to not testify in/co-operate with – the processes of a Criminal Court about the matter.

    It solely settles the civil claims, losses of time, energy and income, as a result of the behaviour of the defendants, including giving a lesson in why planting cords into the energy field of (redacted) in the astral, with dubious intentions, whilst under the influence of Ayahuasca and cannabis, is not wise.

    The signing of the agreement by the Defendants representative also confirms the payment will be made on time, in full and without delay.
    How the payment is to be shared is a matter for the defendants to resolve.


    The Parties agree and acknowledge that time is of the essence with regard to the Settlement Payment and that if the Defendants ignore the proposed offer or do not act upon it, the Plaintiff is not bound to the agreement and the Plaintiff may commence formal civil litigation and may increase the damages bill further in the event of further abuses and instruct a solicitor to recover the damages, and the costs involved.
    For clarity this means that the agreement only becomes active and the dispute fully settled when signed by the defendants AND when the settlement payment has been made, after which the Plaintiff will sign the agreement.


    The defendants should choose one representative to sign this agreement on behalf of all of them. That representative agrees to enter into the agreement on behalf of all defendants.

    The signed agreement should be sent by email to (redacted)


    The Defendants agree amongst themselves to not commit, encourage or incite any threats of violence, harassing comments or defamations, and any act such attributable to the defendants will immediately render the agreement null and void.

    The Defendants agree informally and within themselves to tidy up their own ethics and integrity and agree to take proper ethical, moral and spiritual responsibility in the conducting of their Ayahuasca operations in future.

    As per the terms and conditions of (redacted) past website, and in his Life Story (read by several of the defendants), and because this was foreseeable - the defendants agree that they are collectively and completely responsible for their own detriment (and financial loss) - aka karma - in this matter, caused by threatening (redacted) with violence or associating with/condoning/supporting those who do (whilst involved in, or supporting those involved in, illegal activities including drug trafficking under Portuguese law) and in that vein, no claims for damages against the Plaintiff will be entertained.

    The Defendants agree that none of the websites created in the public interest and for reasons of public safety - to warn others of harm and danger (and to teach the defendants lessons in respect and self-responsibility) – can ever be removed, but should the matter be settled, the Plaintiff will simply make updates stating the matters have been resolved privately to his satisfaction and will make no further comment.
    Nevertheless, the defendants entering into this agreement shows a collective remorse and regret for the behaviour of Johannes Maasland and thus warrants a complete forgiveness from (redacted) in this matter.


    Signed and dated by both parties.

    Though it’s painful to admit it, there are times when a blemished reputation is rightfully earned.

    You may in fact have been in the wrong, and through the combination of honest self-reflection and constructive feedback from friends, have realised your mistake.

    Begin to repair the damage by owning up to your behaviour and making amends to anyone you’ve wronged.

    Admit your mistakes, apologise, and ask for forgiveness.

    As difficult as it is to fess up, it shows you’re a man of integrity and character, and if nothing else, you should be respected for your courage in taking responsibility.

    Its called TAKING (censor) RESPONSIBILITY !

    Dear Free Spirit

    On behalf of the Santo Daime Church in the UK and Portugal, I unreservedly and sincerely apologize for the distress caused to you and your partner because of the death threats made by someone in our movement connected with an ongoing police investigation, who was arrested with a large amount of cannabis and other illegal substances.

    I also want to apologize for the collective abuse of our brothers and sisters who made mockery of you on the web, maliciously defaming your work for the human race as well as threatening harm or violence before the police can help.

    We must now accept some moral responsibility for the matter, because Johannes Maasland of Earth Connection Portugal, along with Daniela Markert, were members of our Church, who participated in our retreats often, and through us, was introduced to the Path of the Santo Daime.

    His behaviours and the behaviours of the families involved are not ones we bless, condone or support.

    He has shown himself to be reckless, morally irresponsible and respect-less for the law of the land and he is clearly unsuited to the work. We have examined the death threats made which implies you could be killed before the police can do anything about it. Because these threats were made by one within our wider community we are deeply hurt and shocked by what has happened.

    We confirm The Santo Daime movement condemns such despicable behaviour in the strongest possible terms and we encourage people in our wider communities to respect the laws of the land and to respect life.

    Johannes Maasland’s behaviour brings shame and dishonour to us all.

    It reflects badly on us as a whole and we do not condone the illegal cultivation of cannabis.

    This matter has shown is the importance of ethical awareness and moral integrity in what we do, as you have pointed out, and we acknowledge over the years that there has been weaknesses in those areas, and now, strive to learn from this experience. We also acknowledge there are other lessons that this matter has presented to us, and we now know that we must take them seriously in all the work that we do, so that this never happens again.

    We have decided to make a priority, the development of ethical and moral awareness, in all who attend our gatherings, so that we can promote good and respectable behaviour, respect for law and respect for other people.

    We accept that these ethical, moral and spiritual lessons have been presented to us, at great danger and risk to yourself and your partner – and that your role in our movement, has clearly been to reflect back big lessons at the risk of serious injury, or even death by violence, a matter that is deeply troubling for us.

    In addition to apologizing for death threats made by Johannes Maasland – on behalf of the Santo Daime Church in the UK and Portugal, I also unreservedly and sincerely apologize for the distress caused to you and your partner because of the other abuses posted online by him and ‘friends’ of The Sanctuary 1860 Ayahuasca Retreat Centre in Portugal founded by those from our Santo Daime Church.

    Some of those postings labelled you mentally ill, sick, evil, twisted, a criminal, an abuser, a loser as well as suggesting you should feel fear in your trousers, or be killed before the police can help.

    His postings were insulting, degrading, disgusting and not representative of how we expect any of our followers to behave in their daily lives. We condemn mockery in the strongest terms, by anyone in our Santo Daime movement and I implore our followers to take responsibility for their actions, decisions and mistakes.

    We do not advocate those who run public Ayahuasca retreats to flout cannabis cultivation laws in Portugal or elsewhere, and a heist of significant cannabis found at one of these centres by police is embarrassing for us all.

    These mistakes hurt our Free Santo Daime cause because we must show we are morally respectable as well as respecting of the laws of the countries where we do the Daime. We must now accept some moral responsibility for the matter, because Johannes Maasland was a member of our Church, who participated in our retreats often, and through us, was introduced to the Path of the Santo Daime, and who indirectly, with the help of Daniela Markert aka Daniela Mar, founded The Sanctuary 1860 along with Alexandra Akat and Attila Akat.

    The Sanctuary 1860 and Earth Connection Portugal were founded by members of our Santo Daime Church, who have clearly lost their moral way in their quest to be number one in Portugal for Ayahuasca. In the case of Johannes Maasland, he seems like an extremely unstable and maverick character, totally unsuited to this kind of work.

    His behaviours are not ones we bless, condone or support and we confirm that we no longer support his activities, or the activities of his family, or that of The Sanctuary 1860, in any way whatsoever, and their operations and activities are not blessed by the Santo Daime Church.

    We condemn all the abuses that you have witnessed at the hands of Johannes Maasland and The Sanctuary 1860 and encourage all those in our movement to take responsibility for their mistakes. We are appalled by some of the behaviours that have occurred and are deeply ashamed about what has happened and it reflects badly on all of us.

    We expect all who attend our gatherings to respect the laws of the land and to behave themselves responsibly in their lives and will remind our followers, in future events, to do so. The Santo Daime Church faces difficult times for legalization of our sacrament and practices, we often find ourselves in the Courts having to defend our practices and importation of the sacrament.

    We now know we must not import the sacrament in countries where it is prohibited and must re-evaluate our position in the light of Johannes arrest who was the leader of an Ayahuasca Santo Daime Centre in Portugal.

    At the highest levels of our movement, we will make a sea change in our approaches.

    I have taken very seriously the prophecies you have emailed me, about the further destruction of Ayahuasca Retreat Centres, and loss of life, and will take these prophecies very seriously, because you foresaw other Centres burning down, and then they did burn down.

    I also want to wholeheartedly and unreservedly apologize for the insults you received from someone in the Cascais Santo Daime Church group. The individual who did not name themselves, but implied they were from the Cascais Church - labelled you a homosexual peodophile (which implies that you like gay sex with underage boys) and this insult was clearly done to offend.

    Obviously, for someone in our movement to make such an offensive insult, without any justification other than from a place of pure hatred, is totally appalling, and I, as a Senior of the Santo Daime Church, am totally ashamed of this.

    As well as mocking you as a peodophile, they also claimed to be tracking your emails and bank account.

    The fact that someone in our movement would pretend to be a private investigator and claim to be tracking your emails in such a blatently unprofessional and unregulated manner is troubling.

    It shows us that some in our movement are disrespectful, violate Data Protection laws and also claim to be able to track private bank accounts. This reflects badly on me because I stood back and allowed my friends in the Daime to mock you like this and I did nothing because I wanted to keep your donations for myself.

    I did not act or intervene because I put my interests first, which was a mistake. I saw already the same organizer mocked you months before, but I used them anyway to host a music event, so I was stupid to do that and brought about my own troubles and a potential investigation by the Information Commissioners Office.

    I will comply fully with the Subject Access Request submitted and turn over all the relevant data that we hold about you as an organization. We will be transparent in any investigation by any data regulation authority and learn from these mistakes. I confirm our movement condemns illegal or unauthorized private investigations, or the abuse of personal data, or any other kind of collective mockery.

    I also want to wholeheartedly and unreservedly apologize for not taking the matters presented seriously before and intervening to condemn the abuse and mockery. Because of this we must accept we are responsible for our own detriment. When brothers and sisters of my Church mocked and insulted you, claiming you were a scumbag, would be killed, was an arsonist, mentally deranged and a homosexual peodophile, I did not want to take ethical responsibility and condemn my associates and friends responsible.

    This was because I chose loyalty to those who lost their ethical way, rather than to the ethical authority of the Spiritual Mentor, expert in matters of metaphysics and astral matters, who was threatened with violence by a maverick character in our own group and then subjected to degrading treatment and mockery.

    I now know I must take responsibility, to rescue my own integrity, brought into very serious question indeed. I jet-setted around the world on music tours instead of taking responsibility as a leader for my mistakes and for this I regret that decision to ignore the problem.

    I did not respect you or your wisdom and now we are all suffering for that mistake, because of our ethical shortcomings and our collective failings in being able to take responsibility for our mistakes, our hubris, our hatred and our unresolved issues. I have brought my family and closest aides into shame and dishonour, because of my ego, my hubris, and my unwillingness to respect your wisdom, and to say sorry.

    I did not want to be sorry before because of my ego, this was a mistake I must now correct.

    I now know there is more to being a Santo Daime leader than being the ‘king of the castle’ from a space of ego-inflated self-importance, this was my downfall and I must learn from this. I tried to evade responsibility and stood by whilst others in the group mocked and insulted you for fun.

    When someone in our group threatened to kill you before the police could help, I did not intervene there and then to condemn the behaviour outright that would have saved so much trouble for me and my aides, and most importantly, yourself and your family who were made to feel fear of death threats or acts of violence.

    You warned me of fires and to stop the works citing safety concerns and complex metaphysical matters, but I did not and the fires came. I was challenged because I was in my ego and thought I knew better, but I was wrong, and have been humbled by the lessons and the loss of several Ayahuasca Centres in Portugal to fire that were run by my Daime brothers and sisters.

    You foresaw the fires but we did not believe you have prophetic abilities and the fires came. We did not understand energy or how high level astral energies can invoke serious trouble.

    We will no longer do workshops here in Portugal, because of the seriousness of your prophecies that tend to come true. Several Centres were destroyed by fire and lives were lost as you foresaw in writing. We must improve matters with regard to fire safety in our gatherings in the light on the 2017 fires and to ensure all of our attendees are aware of the wildfire danger in the countryside in fire season.

    Some of my brothers and sisters in the Santo Daime mocked you in very degrading ways whilst on police bail for trafficking crimes that I completely condemn, and others whilst under police investigation for mockery of victims of abuse were clearly all Santo Daime because they said so on their personal websites advertising the Ayahuasca retreats in Portugal.

    They paid for their ethical, legal and moral mistakes with life-changing losses and the loss of their Ayahuasca retreat centres in Portugal, as you foresaw. They stated they were Santo Daime people, so I must now condemn this abuse to set a good example of how I expect the Santo Daime family in Portugal and elsewhere to behave so that our freedom for the Santo Daime is not compromised by reckless or irresponsible behaviour.

    I believed I could keep the donations you made in good faith, even though you were forced to move for your safety, threatened with death by those who I gave the Daime to and mocked by their families, even though they were ill-suited. I did not want to admit my mistake, but now I must to rescue my integrity and to become a better person.

    I was wrong to believe you should make losses and be forced out of your home by drunken representatives of our movement in trouble with the police and for this I am so sorry.

    I assure you that we will learn from these matters and as a leader, I take full responsibility for all the abuse, death threats and mockery emanating from our Daime family, from the family of Johannes Maasland and Daniela Markert, it reflects bad on me and on the Daime family. I now know that I must foster better morals and ethical standards in our groups. I confirm I do not support their activities in any way and condemn all that has happened in terms of offending you, your work, your wellbeing and your energy.

    This whole sorry tale has been a wake-up call for us in the importance of ethical practice as you say, and in the light of this we will endeavour to do all we can to bring more clarity and grounding to every aspect of our practice, both in and out of the workshops. Thank you for being such a beacon of uncompromising integrity, hopefully others may learn from your example.

    I am totally ashamed of myself and everything that has happened in this matter. The actions of a few have spoiled it for us all and brought the Santo Daime into disrepute. We hope that our apology and appropriate amends shows that we are sincerely regretful that you had to experience this behaviour by one of our wider community.

    We are grateful for the light and wisdom you have brought to our gatherings, and we hope that this apology will demonstrate goodwill and respect to you and your work. We wish you well in your endeavours and your work for the human race and again, I am very sorry you went through this because of my failings in leadership and because of the behaviour of others.

    I ask for your forgiveness and understanding in this matter.

    This family including Attila Akat was warned of the suicide of his brother in law in 2017 citing drug abuse and alcohol problems as well as mental health issues. The one the Akats helped to threaten with violence and murder to be quiet to the police in a drug trafficking investigation that the Akats were involved in foresaw in writing a suicide and told everyone to have the individual named Johannes Maasland seek help for mental health problems.

    Here is the proof


    The family refused to get him the help and instead dosed him up with drugs. Attila posted up comments that the one threatened with murder was a liar, and that the police raids were lies, but the Courts disagreed. Various authorities posted up details of the drugs found.

    His brother in law used his full name to tell a witness to Court to expect violence, murder and to get change of pants ready. The Akats helped him to slip bail in 2018. The Akats thought the one threatened with murder was a police snitch but he got in wrong, the family lost everything for their mistakes and involvement in drug related criminality.

    Maasland, the suicider, before his death used several websites with his full name causing the sites to disclose to law enforcement the IP address leading the police to find Attila Akat's brother and sister in law hiding up in a retreat centre involved in ayahuasca.

    They were both taken to prison and then released pending further Court hearings, in one hearing the Judge handed down several injunctions banning harassment of a witness to Court.

    Whilst awaiting a hefty prison sentence for trafficking in vast quantities of banned substances, brother in law of Attila Akat went on a mad rage, posted nasty comments and then days later he killed himself in an act of self-murder, suicide.

    They were warned one year previously of a suicide caused by mental health issues, alcohol, weed and ayahuasca, he was told to step back from the ceremonies as a leader. All the family of the Akats were warned but they would not have him step back for healing. Instead they threatened to murder and besmirch the one that foresaw the suicide.

    The Akats were also warned in writing, and instead of dealing with the matter responsibly, turned nasty. They did not intervene when warned of a suicide, nor did they get him a mental health check, and instead gave him more drugs.

    They were taught a lesson when the suicide happened and when the uninsured Earth Connection Portugal and The Sanctuary 1860, the family businesses in banned drug retreats in Portugal, along with 16 other centres were burned down by fires, as foreseen.

    Then the Akats got involved in distributing banned Schedule 1 substances in the USA in 2018, hiding in CA under different names. They were found and the DEA were warned of their activities as well as filled in on the details of the witness harassment and his involvement in a drug related suicide, Attila Akat had to take down his website advertising banned substance retreats in Santa Cruz, CA

    After the Akats were warned of the suicide, they allowed him to drink ayahuasca without proper intake procedures, with cannabis, and sometimes under the influence of alcohol. Maasland also used LSD that may have contributed to the suicide.

    Brother in law of Attila Akat killed himself in a rage SUICIDE, as foretold, exacerbated by drugs, LSD use, a hallucinogenic banned substance called ayahuasca provided by the Akats, and mental health issues deliberately overlooked by the family. The Akats had to stop serving banned Schedule 1 drugs, or face prison.

    They threatened to smear a witness to Court as mentally sick with the help of an Adrian Freedman who later had to apologize, but then the Akats got smeared for involvement in drug dealing and threats of violence.

    The Akats proved themselves to be nasty liars trying to save their criminal interests, but karma taught them a lesson, first burning down their houses and retreat centres, then the cops raiding their friends houses, followed by their family members jumping bail being found, culminating in a suicide attributable to reckless and irresponsible behaviour.

    All of the businesses of the family were closed down within a year, as foretold.

    The Akats blamed a witness to the troubles and instead labelled him mentally sick and evil. in one case arranging a house visit to make several threats of violence and murder, but life taught them a lesson when a family member KILLED HIMSELF due to mental health problems, now one of their people is DEAD, cause drug related SUICIDE
