Noriko Moonbird Takahashi Adrian Freedman / involvement in criminal activity death threats scandal - profiting from illegal activity

1 TOTNES, Japan Review updated:

Noriko Moonbird Takahashi is the partner of a Mr Adrian Freedman, both of whom believe jet-setting around the world on the donations made from illegal activities is a moral thing to do, when persons involved in their group the Santo Daime church, importing Santo Daime in ways to avoid police and customs detection, made threats against the life of a police witness.

The Church was not interested in condemning the behaviour and instead some of its representatives claimed that a Spiritual Mentor would be killed before the police can help and organizers of the Santo Daime retreats in Portugal (who admitted that the Santo Daime was illegal in Portugal) pretended to be a private imvestigator and began to mock a witness in a criminal trial, labelling him a homosexual peodophile.

That person was importing Ayahuasca concentrate illegally, as was the person who made the death threats, it was being imported for Adrian Freedmans Santo Daime works.

One of them was found with 14 kilos of cannabis at his house.

Noriko Moonbord Takahashi is also involved in the behaviour and supports the events, that appear to be held illegally in Portugal.

The group was raided in 2010 by the UK Police and Mr Freedman narrowly avoided prison, but then went to Portugal to do works there, despite not having legal permission.

The group thought it was acceptable to not refund the donations made to someone who had to move at his own expense, because he was subjected to threats of violence and being sent to hospital.

Instead, they ignored the problem and continued sanctioning the individuals involved to run Santo Daime retreats with imported concentrate, imported in ways to avoid police and customs detection.

and

Gave the silent nod of approval for its retreat centre organizers to abuse, mock and insult witnesses in a police investigation.

As well, fires destroyed many of the homes and retreat centres involved in the Santo Daime Church. The Mentor threatened with death foresaw them and warned Mr Freedman, who ignored the prophecies and did another works in Portugal.

That same day, the fires came and destroyed several centres putting a stop to bad tea works, started by Mr Freedman and Noriko Takahashi, who make large profits (untaxed and under the table) by running retreats where cannabis is also used against the wishes of the founding father of the movement.

The Church has yet to properly condemn the behaviours complained of, and instead lied about their roles and found others to mock and abuse witnesses to a Criminal Trial, others in the Church found it funny to mock, but the police came and raided their cannabis farms.

Several members of the Church face prison for trafficking crimes, and it came to light that Mr Freedman and his wife were also involved in arranging for the substances to be transported across borders in cars illegally, through other countries where the Santo Daime is illegal.

Adrian Freedman dishonoured a damages bill in favour of loyalty to his friends raided with much cannabis and LSD, as well as cannabis oil, to be sold at works, who also face prison for threats of violence and mockery under Portuguese law.

Adrian Freedman was the founding father of that retreat centre named Earth Connection Portugal, it was started up with big amounts of Santo Daime, with the aim of doing a summer camp there, with cannabis, grown illegally.

But the police and the fires put a stop to the activity.

The default position of the Santo Daime Church is to avoid responsibility for mistakes of its own making, but once people are threatened with being put in a wheelchair and the police get involved, and large amounts of illegal substances are found, and people are threatened with death to be quiet to the police, karma is the teacher.

  • guru1556's Response, Mar 10, 2018

    GURU foresaw 11 ayahuasca retreat centres burning down, he told them to stop abusing the ayahuasca, but the family involved abused, mocked GURU and said he would be killed before the police could help.

    They did not believe the prophecies and just instead labelled GURU mentally ill, sick, twisted, evil and the like, and carried on drinking Ayahuasca tea, claiming they were gateways to awareness.

    The fires came, perhaps as Divine Retribution for mockery and plotting to kill the GURU (whilst facing prison on drug trafficking charges). He daughters lost both of their homes and retreat centres, in the same fire, a prophecized fire that no-one believed would come.

    Their Ayahuasca operations were stopped, and some family members await Tribunal, for trafficking in substances and threatening to kill people, as well as for malicious defamation.

    The family refused to pay damages, and in response to a lawsuit notice, simply had one of the family say that the GURU would be killed before the police could help.

    Of course, the police got involved, and the individuals are in big trouble.

    Then the fires came and burned down their houses.

    The family thought that they could be successful in Ayahuasca operations (and illegal cannabis cultivation) whilst mocking and abusing GURUs for pleasure, for fun.

    Life taught DAIME FAMILY a lesson.

    They did not believe the prophecies, even though a centre burned down in June, 64 people dead, the day after GURU foresaw.

    Alexandra Akat and Daniela Mar, and Johannes Maasland (arrested for death threats and 14 kilos of cannabis, Astrids son-in-law) were all warned about the fires, they did not want to be frightened by prophecies.

    But they were all involved in abusing GURU, who kept foreseeing fires every time he was insulted, then the fires came and burned down the houses and retreat centres, they did not take insurance, even though they were warned 10+ times that fire was coming.

    Their response was to gather as a family and support death threats, one said GURU would be crippled, put in a wheelchair, sent to hospital, killed before the police can help, then the GURU had visions of fires destroying their homes, fatal car crashes, sicknesses, all manner of troubles.

    These foreseen deaths and disasters can be explained as the karmic and metaphysical consequence of a 'tea works of death' that happened in january 2017, one individual named johannes maasland threatened to kill GURU and put him in a wheelchair, whilst drunk, on santo daime dieta, and then the family rallied round to support him, just Days later.

    They did what can only be described as a 'tea works of death', because this karma of threatening to kill GURU was concentrated and consecrated in a tea work, and many many black stones were made, and then shared around with the family members and friends, some of whom claimed that such a behaviour was good work for humanity, was advancing light-work in portugal, and these individuals claimed they were ayahuasca experts

    All of those who attended these tea works of death, have now experienced catastrophic life-ruin, as foreseen, and the karma of wishing the death of GURU, are magnified in such tea works and the black stones of karma are then inherited by attendees, and explains why many of them, are now ruined, because those who affirm death, clearly invoke karma.

    A Triple GURU CURSE has been invoked by associates of Nancy Swinnen and Adrian Freedman of the Santo Daime group in the UK.

    Guru Curses cause catastrophic life damage to those who offend Guru and to those who help offenders of Guru.

    In this case firstly many in the group claimed a Guru was not a Guru and said his partner was not welcome at the works and she should go home, so she did early, but then Nancy Swinnen wanted money from Guru anyway for her non-attendance.

    Then Mr Freedman did not want to give Guru more Daime, saying it was precious, but then he gave many litres to someone who was not a Guru.

    That person threatened to kill Guru and to make violence, hurt legs with baseball bat, send to hospital, or have dogs attack him and kill. That invoked Death Curse on family, car accidents, cancer, suicides, other forms of death expected.

    Police came and found drugs in houses of people who made death threats on Guru, brother of the Santo Daime Johannes Maasland, he drinks alcohol and makes ridicule of Guru, friends of Adrian and Nancy step in to help, they are not sorry, Guru Curse spreads and jumps.

    The same person helped by Nancy and Adrian made bad tea works invoking Guru fire curse, it burned down many retreat centres, 100+ dead, the karma of threatening to kill Guru. Adrian and Nancy would not stop the events or condemn them so they carried on, spitting and insulting Guru who foresaw fire. Fire came, destroyed temples and shrines, houses, everything destroyed.

    Fire curse unleashed throughout the land because friends of Nancy and Adrian also accused Guru of arson, God sent fires to destroy the centres weeks later, 100 dead. Nancys friends called him a pedophile and other things because he wanted sorry, no one sorry to Guru.

    Then abundance curse, everyone lose money, thousands and thousands, like water gushing from a broken bucket, everyone heomarraging money.

    Because also Adrian took a book without paying from Guru, he paid later, but did not pay other bills. Then he took trips to Japan and ignored Guru, whilst his friends threatened to kill, making death curse.

    Triple guru curse is very bad. Death, fire and money loss.

    Many in Nancy and Adrians Group rallied round to insult Guru, saying he was thick, a plank-head, a small child, a baby, spastic, autistic, rapist, and more. They lied about supplying Santo Daime to those who offended and threatened to kill Guru, they made money from it, so they made bad luck and now their brothers and sisters of the Daime lose many things.

    Fires came and burned houses of Daime family, 100 dead people around.

    Offending Guru more never stops Guru curse, only more bad luck for all.

    Visiting musician in drugs / death threats scandal. The bodhi khaya retreat centre in south africa gives support and blessing for a visiting musician named adrian freedman, who believes jet-setting around the world rather than addressing problems on the home front is wise.

    Adrian freedman is involved in a scandal where his friends and associates involved in growing cannabis and importing santo daime threatened to kill a guru, claiming it would be before the police could help.

    It was because a friend of his growing marijuana for santo daime works was busted with 14 kilos of it and was the key supplier for marijuana to be distributed within adrian's santo daime family and for smoking at the ceremonies. He was also caught with lsd.

    Adrian is under monitoring for administering ayahuasca to children, a matter that came to light when one of his retreat centre organizers insulted the guru as a homosexual peodophile, over a dispute around refunds for retreats attendedm because he was mocked by the organizers and others within adrian's church. Some of them face prison.

    Other friends of adrian freedman labelled the guru all kinds of obscenities, adrian freedman refused to condemn the behaviour and believes that taking trips to south africa instead of paying his debts or taking responsibility for his troubles in europe, is moral and wise.

    Those troubles include his associates and friends threatening to kill people whilst on police bail for trafficking charges, and mocking trial witnesses, other friends of mr freedman found the behaviour funny, and mr freedman believed he did not have to apologize.

    The witness in an investigation into trafficking of substances had to move to avoid violent attacks on his life. Adrian refused to pay his debt of damages and instead spent the money to go to south africa and japan.

    Not only that, he gave the silent support for retreat centres that organize his retreats to mock the guru a homosexual peodophile, for which adrian freedman showed no interest in apologizing for.

    Many in adrians group rallied round to insult guru, saying he was thick, a plank-head, a small child, a baby, spastic, autistic, rapist, and more, others saying he should fear for his life, a behaviour that ultimately adrian did not want to condemn, because they were his friends growing cannabis and importing santo daime for his works.

    It goes to show that flying around the world ignoring a problem does not make the problem go away, and just takes the problem to where one hides from it.

    Homosexual peodophile insult still not apologized for by adrian freedman, visiting musician at bodhi kyaha it was made by one of his organizers importing the santo daime illegally, without permission, out of pure hatred.

    The wording of the letter still to be signed says:-

    In addition to the other apologies presented, 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.

    I must ask for your full forgiveness in this matter - and of course, this behaviour, is not behaviour we expect in our movement, and this shows us now, how much we have to work on in our movement.

    The santo daime church / adrian freedman

    Adrian believes jet-setting around the world rather than taking moral responsibility for the very bad behaviour of his associates is good behaviour. There are also outstanding letters for signing with regard to being threatened with death and violence by those importing the santo daime.

    Friends of theirs also thought it was funny calling the guru a scumbag and imagining fires that then burned some of the retreat centres run by associates of nancy and adrian involved inn substance dealing and threatening to kill people.

    The apology that they were not interested in signing reads:-

    Apology for homosexual peodophile insult

    The complained of directors gave the silent support for retreat centres that organize his retreats to mock the guru a homosexual peodophile, for which adrian freedman showed no interest in apologizing for.

    Many in adrians group rallied round to insult guru, saying he was thick, a plank-head, a small child, a baby, spastic, autistic, rapist, and more, others saying he should fear for his life, a behaviour that ultimately adrian did not want to condemn, because they were his friends growing cannabis and importing santo daime for his works.

    The police arrested a close aide of adrian freedman and nancy swinnen, named johannes maasland, they found three big sacks of cannabis ready for smoking, destined to be sold to members of the santo daime family.

    He also threatened to kill the guru, adrian refused to condemn the behaviourm because johannes was importing santo daime.

    The guru foresaw 11 ayahuasca retreat centres burning down, he told them to stop abusing the ayahuasca, but the family involved abused, mocked guru and said he would be killed before the police could help.

    They did not believe the prophecies and just instead labelled guru mentally ill, sick, twisted, evil and the like, and carried on drinking ayahuasca tea, claiming they were gateways to awareness.

    The fires came, perhaps as divine retribution for mockery and plotting to kill the guru (whilst facing prison on drug trafficking charges). he daughters lost both of their homes and retreat centres, in the same fire, a prophecized fire that no-one believed would come.

    Involvement in Threats to Kill People, Mockery of Trial Witnesses, Threats against body and life by associates, abuse, calling people [censor], Ayahuasca group with serious problems, people raided growing weed for the ceremonies, fostering irresponsible behaviour.

    Many of the people in the group display signs of drug addiction showing up as violence, eroded morals, abuse, police trouble and similar.

    These people are involved in an underground Ayahuasca Santo Daime operation, they use people involved in criminal behaviour facing prison, to set up centres and import substances.

    They offended their founding father Mestre Irineu who taught people in the doctrine not to use cannabis and instead to be responsible citizens, these people are not, do not pay taxes in some of the underground gatherings, and use people involved in mocking witnesses or insulting them, then the authorities looked into the fact they give substances to babies and children.

    One member of the group alluded to being able to arrange a kill (a murder), he was a close friend of ADRIAN FREEDMAN.

    Threats against life were made on several occasions by friends of the people complained of and they were not interested in comdeming the behaviour. Some called the person mocked an arsonist and did not belive God might intervene to stop bad behaviour but then an Act of God came and destroyed 5 of their friends Ayahuasca centres in fires causing them big losses and stopping the tea works.

    The group thinks they do not have to apologize, some of the members face 12 years in prison also, police found large sacks of home grown marijuana at one of the houses of the group, as well as LSD.

    The apologies outstanding include

    In addition to the letter 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.

    Some of those postings labelled you mentally ill 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 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.

    The Sanctuary 1860 was 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.

    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.

    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 do not condone the illegal cultivation of cannabis in our movement.
    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.

    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.

    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 cost, 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, a matter that is deeply troubling for us.

    We are grateful for the light and wisdom you have brought to our gatherings, and we hope that this letter will demonstrate goodwill and respect to you and your work.

    We ask for your forgiveness in this matter

    In addition to the other apologies presented, I also want to wholeheartedly and unreservedly apologize for not taking the matters presented seriously before.

    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 [censor], 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 (redacted), expert in matters of metaphysics and astral matters.

    I now know I must take responsibility, to rescue my own integrity, brought into very serious question indeed. I jet-setted around the world instead of taking responsibility as a leader for my mistakes.

    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 the (redacted). 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 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 provided large amounts of Santo Daime to those ill-suited to host works and then 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 then and condemn the behaviour outright that would have saved so much trouble for me and my aides.

    You warned me of fires and to stop the works, 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. We did not understand energy or how high level astral energies offended by those who made death threats can invoke serious trouble.

    We will no longer do workshops here, because of the seriousness of your prophecies that tend to come true, causing fire and death in the lives of our brothers and sisters, and in the local communities as well.

    You said you prophecized people being killed in a fire in a tea work, so clearly, we must stop the tea works until these astral disturbances have been stopped, because before you prophecized fire and death, and in October, fire and death came in a humbling manner for our brothers and sisters.

    Some of them mocked you, and they paid for the mistake with life-changing losses, as you foresaw. They stated they were Santo Daime people, so I must now condemn this abuse.

    You were forced to move for your safety, threatened with murder by those who I gave the Daime to, even though they were ill-suited. I did not want to admit my mistake, but now I must to spare me and my family untold karmic troubles because of the karma of disrespecting (redacted) and their wellbeing.

    I assure you that we will learn from these matters and as a leader, I take full responsibility for all the abuse and mockery, it reflects bad on me and on the Daime family, I now know that I must foster better morals and standards in our groups.

    The moral of the story is never to play double or nothing with the spiritual guru unless you want loss.

    Double or nothing is a gamble where a party tries to double up on someone at the risk of loss. The group as a whole had a track record of trying to double up on the spiritual guru, with the end outcome being loss.

    Firstly Miguel of GRAVITO tried to double up in 2014, the guru voluntarily paid for his retreat because he did not want to lose the cash, so he paid him, first, before everyone else did. Then for some bizarre reason several times he claimed the guru had not paid and wanted payment again (double or nothing).

    Then Gravito burned down and they made a loss of 80, 000 euros, which might be a karmic reaction for disrespect to the Guru, maybe Gravito mouthed him off, that may never be known, but everyone else that did, lost their centres to fire.

    https://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/gravito-retreat-centre-portugal-involvement-in-abusive-santo-daime-church-illicit-retreats-under-radar-data-concerns-fires-c1000985.html

    Then in 2014 Adrian Freedman did not want to fill up the Guru's glass on the third drink, claiming it was precious and there was not much Daime, but many other people did not drink the third glass, and Adrian filled up large containers for people after the works to take away with them. So he made a karma of loss, the energy of the Daime spilled, because he did not fill up the glass for the Guru when he said more Daime.

    Then Nancy tried to double up on the Guru, demanding 200 euros in a Daime work for non-attendance, at the same time, someone else called and said they were not coming, they did not have to pay a cancellation. Nancy's friends said the gurus partner was not welcome, she should go home, so she did. Then Nancy wanted the payment anyway, that went badly, she made a loss, for trying to cheat the guru for 200 euros because she made organizational mistakes of which Adrian had this to say about it

    Then in another incident a Guru was told he could have some herbal sacrament, but only if he paid double the price everyone else did. Weeks later that individual was raided and many kilos of marijuana was taken away by the police. Then months later he lost his house and retreat centre in a fire, in fact, losing everything, totally everything.

    Here is the proof the fires were foreseen

    https://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/ayahuasca-and-santo-daime-ceremonies-portugal-adrian-freedman-ayahuasca-disaster-in-portugal-as-5-ayahuasca-retreat-centres-are-damaged-lost-to-fire-spiritual-mentor-threatened-with-death-prophecized-fires-c935069.html

    Part of the problems the Daime group face is trying to do the Guru out of abundance, in essence, double or nothing, and in various ways, nothing is what they get back, as a teacher, a lesson.

    Because they did not like him, took his books and chocolates without paying, did not want to top up the Daime glass, wanted him to pay double for the herbal sacraments, or pay for works not attended (double minus - pay for a work and the person does not have the work anyway).

    Then they did not want top pay damages and just had friends threaten to kill him, of course, it is bad for everyone., karma took away their homes and retreat centres, put a stop to their Daime works, put some people in prison and taught some overgrown egos some serious lessons in respect for the Santo Daime.

    In essence they are sticking their fingers up at the Guru, explaining to some extent, why everyone is losing everything. If you say, the spiritual guru should pay double, or make losses, or not be paid for his work, in the kitchen, on in writing, or in giving lessons, then, those who think like this, become losers. If you then mock him for fun as a game, then, in the end, the mockers and accomplices become the laughing stock.

    A set of games of double or nothing that went very wrong for the Daime people, a lesson in healing their egos, humbled by circumstance, in the experience of loss and suffering, maybe then can find healing and atonement for hubris, for arrogance, hatred, evil, maliciousness and plain bad respect.

    But for that they need to do what they call DRY WORKS, works without sacrament. Because the group has toxic ego problems, Daime cannot cure it, only a long abstinence will do it. A dry work is when water is used instead of the Santo Daime, not exactly dry, but dry on the hallucinogenic front.

    The Eternal Heart Centre wishes to issue these public apologies to the complainant Free Spirit.

    The Eternal Heart Centre unreservedly apologizes and condemns the disturbing nature of the complaints including abuse, mockery and threats to kill. On no level do we condone or support such behaviour and we can confirm the behaviours are not ones we sanction.

    Dear Free Spirit,

    On behalf of the Santo Daime Church, 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.

    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.

    His behaviours 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 our movement condemns such despicable behaviour, and we encourage people in our wider communities to respect the laws of the land and to respect life.

    Johannes behaviour brings shame and dishonour to us all, and 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 cost, 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, a matter that is deeply troubling for us.

    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. Some of those postings labelled you mentally ill 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 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.

    The Sanctuary 1860 was 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.

    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.

    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 do not condone the illegal cultivation of cannabis in our movement.

    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.

    In addition to the other apologies presented, 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.

    In addition to the other apologies presented, I also want to wholeheartedly and unreservedly apologize for not taking the matters presented seriously before. 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 (censor), 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 (censor), expert in matters of metaphysics and astral matters.

    I now know I must take responsibility, to rescue my own integrity, brought into very serious question indeed. I jet-setted around the world instead of taking responsibility as a leader for my mistakes. 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 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 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 provided large amounts of Santo Daime to those ill-suited to host works and then 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 then and condemn the behaviour outright that would have saved so much trouble for me and my aides.

    You warned me of fires and to stop the works, 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. We did not understand energy or how high level astral energies offended by those who made death threats can invoke serious trouble.

    We will no longer do workshops here, because of the seriousness of your prophecies that tend to come true, causing fire and death in the lives of our brothers and sisters, and in the local communities as well.

    Some of them mocked you, and they paid for the mistake with life-changing losses, as you foresaw. They stated they were Santo Daime people, so I must now condemn this abuse.

    I believed I could keep the donations you made in good faith, even though you were forced to move for your safety, threatened with murder by those who I gave the Daime to, even though they were ill-suited. I did not want to admit my mistake, but now I must to spare me and my family untold karmic troubles because of the karma of disrespecting (redacted) and their wellbeing.

    I was wrong to believe a (redacted) should make losses for our collective mistakes and for this I am so sorry and want to repent for this mistake. I assure you that we will learn from these matters and as a leader, I take full responsibility for all the abuse and mockery, it reflects bad on me and on the Daime family, I now know that I must foster better morals and standards in our groups.

    I also want to wholeheartedly and unreservedly apologize for the matter of a member of our associated group in Cascais.

    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 you wanted a refund for the events and 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.

    I confirm our movement does not condone illegal or unauthorized private investigations, or the abuse of personal data, or any other kind of mockery.

    I am totally ashamed of myself and everything that has happened in this matter.

    I ask your Source to forgive us and we will now make the damages payment for your trouble.

    The Eternal Heart Centre operated by Adrian Freedman, assisted by Nancy Swinnen and Noriko Moonbird Takahashi, was dissolved by the Companies House in the United Kingdom. It is effective as of September 4th 2018 as per documents downloadable from the website.

    It means the Eternal Heart Ayahuasca/Santo Daime ceremonies and all the other activities of the centre has stopped.

    It was the Eternal Heart Centre that used centres such as Gravito run by Miguel Humblet and Shobha Brennan, as well as Monte Mariposa run by Andy Pears from the UK, and Miguel Abreu.

    It was the Eternal Heart Centre that via Adrian Freedman, founded Earth Connection Portugal which then founded The Sanctuary 1860, at some point Andi Bock and Olly Perry also started Ayahuasca ceremonies.

    They were all told to stop in 2017 after the Santo Daime Catastrophe which began when a representative of the Santo Daime Church in Portugal threatened to murder a prophet who foresaw in visions the destruction of many Ayahuasca centres in fires, but they showed no interest. The Santo Daime people on a mission to be famous in Portugal for Ayahuasca, decided to pick on the Guru, poking fun and laughing at him, making peurile jokes and claiming he was making prophecies of fire to make fear, but then the fires came and destroyed their homes and retreat centres, and the retreat centres of their friends.

    A series of fatal fires ripped through numerous Ayahuasca centres in Portugal during 2017 killing over 100 people.

    The fires were prophecized and people were warned in writing of disaster on numerous occasions, the one that issued the prophecies was threatened with murder and poked fun at, because those involved in such, thought he was a police informant.

    The actions invoked karma and the fires.

    The second series of fires happened on the very same day that Adrian Freedman defied the warnings of a Spiritual Guru to immediately cease the Ayahuasca works in Portugal, and made a show in Portugal anyway.

    He was sticking his finger up at the one who told him to stop, which constitutes hubris, and a serious offence to the Gods. He was told that God would intervene to stop the Ayahuasca works of his people, he did not stop, not showed any interest in stopping.

    Then the fires came in October 2017, 41 people lost their lives, and 5 centres involved in mockery of the Guru, and supporting threats to murder, and poking fun at him whilst conducting Ayahuasca ceremonies, were destroyed or badly damaged by the fires. The centres involved were The Sanctuary 1860, Earth Connection Portugal, and the facilitators who ran the centres were Daniela Markert, Johannes Maasland, Attila Akat and Alexandra Akat.

    Now their Ayahuasca works are CLOSED.

    In ancient Greek, Hubris referred to actions that shamed and humiliated the victim for the pleasure or gratification of the abuser.

    In this case people in the Santo Daime poked fun at a Spiritual Mentor claiming he would be murdered, killed, was a (censor), should fear for his life, was mentally deranged, sick, evil and the like. Even operators of spiritual retreat centres got involved, helping people to spout abuse at him, or giving the silent approval for people to poke fun at him, saying he was a (censor), a (censor), a (censor) and a (censor) and would flounder in hell for eternity, and murdered before the police could help.

    It was a very bad mistake that was compounded again and again until God intervened and sent the fires.

    They derived pleasure from abuse and mockery of the Spiritual Guru grounded in the astral power, the karmic reactions were devastating. It was a manifestation of nemesis that follows from hubris.

    In ancient Greek religion, Nemesis was the goddess who enacted retribution against those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the gods).

    100 people were killed in the fires and many homes and retreat centres burnt to the ground, as prophecized. The families brought dishonour and disgrace to all within the Santo Daime, they invoked a karmic curse of prohibition for the Santo Daime.

    Their actions caused renewed prohibition for Santo Daime, it shows the relationship between hubris and persecution by the authorities. The latter is a moral check to stop what would otherwise be uncontrollable hubris with bad consequences for all of society.

    Hubris typically describes behavior that defies the norms of behavior or challenges the gods, and which in turn brings about the downfall, or nemesis, of the perpetrator of hubris. Hubris is usually perceived as a characteristic of an individual rather than a group, although the group the offender belongs to may suffer collateral consequences from the wrongful act.

    Some in the Eternal Heart group thought they could be successful for Ayahuasca in Portugal, without legal permission, whilst behaving arrogantly toward the Gods and claiming the one that foresaw the fires was a (censor) a (censor) and would be murdered, or put in a wheelchair.

    Many people in the Ayahuasca scene in Portugal derived pleasure from abuse and mockery of the Spiritual Guru grounded in the astral power, the karmic reactions were devastating. It was a manifestation of nemesis.

    Suffice to say, the fires that came again and again, were the Acts from God, finishing off the mockers and giving them the karmic lessons that come from criminal hubris.

    They did not believe in curses, but the evidence shows the prophecies of fires, the warnings of curses and the effects of the fires, as well as pre-dated prophecies of fire, here is proof, they were warned to stop.

    It was the karma of threatening to murder the Guru.

    In June 2018 a Criminal Tribunal (Criminal Court) injuncted the owners of Earth Connection Portugal and The Sanctuary 1860 prohibiting them from making threats of violence, posting malicious abuse and defamatory statements against the witness to the proceedings.

    He was threatened with violence and murder, and subjected to malicious defamation, as a way of blaming him for the police raid that found many kilos of cannabis at the house of Earth Connection Portugal.

    They all mistakenly thought he was a police informant on the cannabis and then some proceeded to make threats to murder, others engaging in malicious defamation and witness harassment.

    The police got involved and filed complaints with the Prosecution and the Tribunal for witness harassment conducted by members of the Santo Daime Church headed by Adrian Freedman.

    The Tribunal made an Injunction against those responsible with permanent effect on the four named people below, process number of the Criminal Tribunal is 1544.18.3T9 GMR Tribunal Oliveira do Hospital, Portugal.

    The people that the Criminal Injunction refers to are Johannes Maasland, Alexandra Akat, Attila Akat and also Daniela Markert, sometimes known as Dani Mar or Daniela Mar.

    All four are brothers and sisters of The Santo Daime Church.

    The injuncted parties were involved in running Ayahuasca retreats in Portugal and advertising them online, their work was started with the assistance of Adrian Freedman of The Santo Daime Church
