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.

    Dear Spiritual Master Free Spirit,

    We unconditionally and unreservedly apologize for implying that you started the fires in Portugal, that killed 64 people, in June 2017.

    We used the F word in an email to you, and as employees of a spiritual retreat centre, we accept that insulting a Spiritual Master in this way is tasteless and disrespectful, and for that, we apologize.

    We also said you had personal problems (implying it was for that reason, you had been threatened with violence or death) and we take back those words also.

    We then deleted the emails so that the owner would not see the insults.

    Our response and comments were unprofessional, and for that, we take full responsibility.

    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.

    In an update to the matter, the response of one of the Santo Daime Church wrote and claimed blogs would be made about the Plantiff in several upcoming lawsuits stating he was of a sick mind. It was made by associates of Nancy Swinnen and Adrian Freedman, they were the founders of the Santo Daime movement in Portugal. Their practice was brought to an end by police raids, drug busts and several fires destroying the centres of those involved in bad Daime works. The fires were prophecized, because the group thought it was wise to threaten to kill the Spiritual Guru, who warned them of the dangers of Ayahuasca abuse, and fires.

    The response of the Santo Daime group was to claim or to imply he would flounder in hell for eternity, was a rapist, would be monitored and stalked, subjected to ongoing criminal harassment, would be paid a visit and sent to a hospital and put in a wheelchair, to defame him as a blackmailer for demanding moral and financial restitution

    Several of the Daime Church members continued to flout Data Protection Rules, Clare Mulligan from Totnes simply deleted her email address and refused to cooperate further, so the matter went back to the Information Commissioners Office for enforcement action and a potential Court hearing to enforce Principle 6, which covers abuse and harassment of witnesses to police investigations.

    The Directors face a Trademark Infringement suit in the United States for collective and wilful abuse of a trademark.

    The police took the phones and computers away from some of those responsible in ongoing harassment and intimidation of Court witnesses, those people face a prison sentence under Portuguese law for mockery, and damages, as well as injunctions to be served upon the families of those responsible. Some who were found with substances prohibited by law, including large sacks of marijuana to be distributed at the Santo Daime works, also face a Court hearing, and imprisonment for drug trafficking under Portuguese law.

    Under Court restrictions, they cannot be named, but it can be disclosed that they were the operators of a Santo Daime retreat centre founded by Nancy and Adrian in 2014, who provided them with Santo Daime, imported illegally, to begin works in Portugal. it was because Adrian and Nancy faced ongoing difficulties with finding places to host the works, and supply issues. They needed more people to import the Daime, and to produce cannabis for the events.

    Nancy and Adrian gave support for the formation of a new base in Portugal for Ayahuasca, operated by several within the movement with a documented history and association with the Santo Daime. They were encouraged to build a toilet block and to procure more centres and temples for Santo Daime works, in order to host a Summer Camp in Portugal, despite the fact that Santo Daime is a prohibited substance in Portugal and police do make arrests. Nancy and Adrian were arrested in the UK in 2010 and after avoiding prosecution simply transferred their work to Portugal.

    But their mistake was to promote cannabis use and dealing, so of course, someone got busted.

    In what will probably go down as the biggest disaster in the Santo Daime since the inception of the movement in Brazil, the group decided to blame the Spiritual Guru for the police raid and proceeded to make threats to murder, with others lending support. the support for threats of violence against the Spiritual Guru was extensive and involved numerous retreat centres as well as importers of the Santo Daime. The group claimed he was a rapist, an arsonist, a child abuser, a spastic, evil, sick, twisted and the like.

    The Directors were shown proof of the abuse linking it to their associates. Their response was to ignore the remainder of the DPA disclosures after incriminating themselves for disseminating personal information and banking details amongst themselves and others, in a vain attempt to try and shut up a police witness threatened with murder by associates of the Santo Daime Church.

    Between January and May 2017, many in the group rallied around to support the death threats and to turn on the Guru, claiming he would be killed, murdered before the police could help, crippled and sent to hospital, the group began to defame his work maliciously, sparking off a series of lawsuits against the perpetrators, who were supported in their endeavours by Adrian and Nancy.

    But the powers that be decided to put a stop to their Daime works, because several thought that claiming to kill an expert in metaphysics was wise. They were told to stop but showed no interest, and were told that God might intervene. God appeared to intervene because fires came to all the centres involved in the abuse, sparing none, save for those who were not of the Santo Daime.

    The firestorms killed 100 people, destroyed a toilet block, damaged or destroyed 6 known centres, wiping one off the map totally, laying waste to several others, putting a stop to the works. Those responsible who wanted fame for Ayahuasca, lost everything.

    The group claimed the Guru was evil and would be killed, but it did not stop the Acts of God that laid waste to their retreat centres.

    Several face imprisonment and lawsuits, the police and the prosecution in Portugal had to take special measures to protect witnesses, had to warn off the families involved, took the computers away and they all face Court for crimes ranging from trafficking in substances to threats to kill, mockery, criminal defamation, stalking, criminal harassment and attempted witness tampering.

    The best the Directors could do was to give silent blessing to people to abuse the Plaintiff, claiming he was of a sick mind, and showed no interest in taking any responsibility. They lied about their involvement, were uncooperative with data requests, ignored their damages bills, refused to say sorry for their roles and simply incited their associates to mock the Plaintiff, with adverse financial consequences for the Directors and those responsible.

    Poetic Justice is an ideal form of justice

    In which the good characters are rewarded and the bad characters are punished by an ironic twist in their fate.

    It is a strong literary view that all forms of literature convey moral lessons

    Therefore writers employ poetic justice to conform to the moral principles.

    For instance, if a character in a novel is pitiless and malicious in most parts of the novel, his state has gone beyond improvement.

    Then the principles of morality demand this character to experience a twist in his fate and be punished.

    Similarly, the ones who have suffered at his hand must be rewarded at the same time.

    The response of many in the group was to claim blackmail, citing a case where a drunk lunatic claimed as such in 2014, but it did not help their case, nor did the police agree any blackmail occurred, nor did any Court.

    But a member of the group tried to coerce a witness to withdraw testimony under threat of being defamed as of a sick mind, an action that invoked a rapid police action, the confiscation of computers and formal charges for witness harassment.

    It is honest opinion that the Santo Daime group is a hotbed of abuse, drug dealers, substance traffickers, dishonest and disreputable individuals, with moral authority issues, that believe they can flout the law and get away with it, or turn on the police witnesses, or threaten to kill the witness, a very serious error indeed for any spiritual group.

    The UK police have been updated on the matter and presumably, are monitoring the activities and movements of the Directors who have fixed addresses, and who have a history of being raided in 2011.
