Shobha Brennan @ Gravito Retreat Centre Portugal — ayahuasca fire disaster, illegal substance retreats and not declaring money for tax
Shobha Brennan is one of the owners of Gravito Retreat Centre destroyed by a prophecized fire in June 2017, 66 people were killed. The place burned down because the Santo Daime collective made fun of a Guru and said he would be murdered, he foresaw fires and deaths, and fires and deaths came to all.
The other owner is named Miguel Humblet, who was found to have supported death threats against a Spiritual Guru in 2017, he went to an Ayahuasca Ceremony to lend support to a group in trouble with the police for substance trafficking to kill the Guru by offering support. One week later the fire came to Gravito and caused the family a Euro 100, 000 loss, badly charring the land and villages for miles around.
Gravito Retreat Centre has a documented history of association with an abusive Santo Daime Group facing serious troubles in Portugal, for things that include criminal harassment, mockery of police witnesses, threats of murder and violence, malicious defamation and impersonation of Private Investigators.
Gravito lent support to ADRIAN FREEDMAN despite his arrest in the UK in 2011 for importation of the Santo Daime. He then imported here instead, knowing it was illegal, and others in Portugal were arrested between 2011-2016 for importing Ayahuasca and Santo Daime, as well as dealing in LSD and cannabis.
GRAVITO in 2013 and 2014 was a place that hosted many illicit Santo Daime works, and a place where people could smoke and deal in cannabis openly, with the blessing of the owners of Gravito, Shobha and Miguel. In retrospect, a questionable decision, that helped to foster criminal behaviour, disrespect for law and moral decay in the spiritual communities in Portugal.
These claims are well substantiated once the Santo Daime Group collectively mocked a police witness online, boldly claiming he would be KILLED before the police could help, was a peodophile, a rapist, a loser, should fear for his life and be afraid. Unfortunately the one MOCKED was a Spiritual Mentor who foresaw all the fires, no-one believed, and mocked him for fun, threatening to kill him, hurling abuse, harassing him to try and prevent him testifying, but the fires came and stopped the works
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
A Data Request was made to Gravito, as someone impersonated a private investigator, either Miguel of Monte Mariposa or Miguel of Gravito, Miguel of Monte Mariposa denied categorically being involved in being able to track bank accounts and impersonating a Private Investigator, whilst claiming a police witness looked like a HOMOSEXUAL PEDOPHILE and was an arsonist.
Nancy Swinnen as one of the Directors working for the Eternal Heart Centre - Santo Daime Churck UK in an unofficial capacity was forced to make disclosures of data by the Information Commissioner's Office that enforces subject access requests made by complainants.
Principle 6 of the Data Protection Act was invoked given concerns around safety of police witnesses, as several aspects of the complaints about the Santo Daime Group referred to mockery of witnesses as well as threats of violence at their doorsteps by those representative of the Church.
The Directors, including Clare Mulligan and Adrian Freedman, ignored the Subject Access Request. The ICO got involved and it is averrred they were forced to comply as they complied.
They released 23 documents, many of which bore Nancy and Adrian's name and prove that there were Santo Daime Ceremonies in Portugal run under the table, not declared for tax, at Gravito. They had to disclose the emails about the bookings. The disclosures quickly debunked the notion that the complainant was mentally deranged and imagined participation in such events, for the emails also included confirmations, requests for payment and schedule lists.
The disclosures that they were forced to make, clearly they had to, as they were incriminating, and included ample proof of inviting children and minors to participate in Ayahuasca ceremonies, making them kid friendly. The disclosures combined with other research showed beyond any shadow of a doubt, a causal line of karma linking Adrian Freedman, Clare Mulligan, Nancy Swinnen and Miguel Abreu as well as Gravito
There is ample proof to show the Directors made no attempt to be sorry or to cease the supplying of the Santo Daime, but then weeks later the Centres supplied were destroyed by freak prophecized wildfires.
The Data Disclosures in essence gave the complainant proof of the truth of the complaints, and admitted the connections and the ceremonies that everyone pretended did not happen, and instead many in the group were presumably incited to mock the Spiritual Mentor, labelling him evil, deranged, a liar and telling him to expect violence or even being murdered, a very serious error indeed for any spiritual group.
Such a mistake has spoiled their Daime works and told the police in the UK, Portugal and the EU that they continue to import, distribute and operate, despite being told in the UK and Ireland not to do it again. The response of the Church to those who point out a better way is to mock and insult them, to vilify them, portray them as liars, evil, and the like, but this did not spare the Daime group in Portugal misfortune and loss as well as the end of their practice in Portugal. This is because the police now know such centres are places to raid for other substances.
It is Honest Opinion that the Santo Daime Groups in the UK and Portugal have attitude issues toward ethical, moral, legal and police authority, and believe they can get away with mocking witnesses, or inciting / supporting violence, but unfortunately, with the advent of the internet, and the police and the discovery of prohibited substances, dispel such a myth and presents uncomfortable facts and truths for healing for the group.
In 2016 and 2017 he foresaw many fires and made recommendations, but the group turned on the wiser brother and prophet amongst them, in essence, turning on God's Love, spitting at it, abusing and mocking it, claiming he was a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted) and a (redacted) amongst other obscenities.
The prophet had drank 1, 000 times and was experienced in Santo Daime and was an instrument of love and healing for the human race.
Several brothers and sisters tried to defame the prophet as a criminal, as an evil-doer, a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted) and a (redacted) and claimed he was making up prophecies of fire, but six centres were lost in 2017 as foreseen and written about in the free book The Santo Daime Catastrophe.
The group wanted to be powerful in Portugal for Ayahuasca and decided that God's Love and Wisdom was inconvenient and had different agendas, they thought mocking God's Love would make them powerful for Ayahuasca and make them ascend like Jesus Christ.
At each prophecy they mocked him, treated him like (redacted), posting online he was a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted) and a a (redacted) as well as a (redacted).
So God intervened and fires came destroying many of the centres, tearing families apart by the forces of karma, sending people to jail, having the police raid centres, closing down others, cursing the land and the wider community with a lot of misfortune and putting an end to the Eternal Heart Santo Daime works in Portugal.
They offended God's Love so they lost the protection and power of their practice, because they were not aligned with eternal love and light, as they sing in their songs. They became fallen as they forgot to heal their darkness and believed the prophet was the evil, the darkness, a (redacted), a (redacted), a (redacted) and aa (redacted).
Clearly Adrian Freedman has realized he has lost his freedom for the Santo Daime in Portugal, and conceded defeat, by filing for dissolution, symbolic of accepting God's Will, which was the end of his works.
The Santo Daime Catastrophe refers to a karmic disaster caused by threatening to kill the Guru, an action supported by the Eternal Heart group. They claim to be of love and light, but they thought blaming a Guru for the bust of a major cannabis trafficking operation blessed by Mr Freedman was wise.
Gravito Retreat Centre was a place where people could come and deal in cannabis and other substances, with the owners blessing. They also opened up their land to illicit Santo Daime retreats claiming they were legal, but the group slipped up later and in an email where an individual was told he looked like a (censor) they admitted they had no legal sanction and were still working with the police to secure it.
In 2011 the Santo Daime was busted in Lisbon and 30 litres of Santo Daime were seized, Gravito opened up their land and took black money for the retreats, to hide them from the authorities.
A close friend of Gravito, growing cannabis for the Santo Daime people was raided with large sacks of cannabis, ready prepared for consumption, there was 14 kilos of it. Gravito denied involvementr but later a famiy member of the one busted posted on social media a picture of Miguel Humblet's art, alluding to his association with those on police bail, for trafficking, and threats to murder.
In 2017 the group thought a Guru was a police informant and as they did not like his spiritual message to be ethically and morally responsible for one's life, decided to single him out for abuse and mockery, claiming he would be crippled, murdered, (censor), (censor) and looked like a (censor) and was a homosexual peodophile and a (censor) of (censor).
He was not the police informant but foresaw the raid, and the subsequent fires that were the karma of threatening to murder him, an action supported by friends of the Eternal Heart, and indeed Adrian Freedman himself.
That explains why all the Santo Daime group is experiencing a passing away, manifestations of death and dying, and the end of the Santo Daime.
It is debatable whether anyone will flounder in hell for eternity, as God's Love is also about forgiveness.
But certainly the Santo Daime collective made some of the greatest trangressions against God, God's Love, morality, spiritual wisdom and the Higher Powers that it is possible to commit in human form.
Adrian Freedman is named and shamed for bad leadership, , hubris, contempt for Spiritual Gurus, involvement in substance trafficking and getting involved with people who mock police witnesses for fun, hardly a good example for someone who wants to get legal sanction for his Santo Daime.
A member of the Ireland Santo Daime Church also joined in the abuse, in 2017, a Court ruled against them, telling them they could not import again.
Many of the centres are not destroyed by fire, it was an Act of God, a foreseeable disaster that Adrian was warned about and did not believe.
The deeper problem is the fact the group believe they can violate trafficking laws, in the name of religion, and threaten to kill people, or other violent acts, to advance their practice. but several countries have banned the substance and forbid its importation, a judge told the Santo Daime in Ireland that they make their own laws, but that the law of the land, prevails. They lost the right to import there.
It is forbidden in Portugal, but the group came here after several arrests in the UK, which resulted in prohibition. Many came to Portugal, with the blessing of several retreat centres and the Directors to start cannabis farms and new centres, using people who were willing to import substances across international borders and take chances.
It is fair to say that threatening to kill the Spiritual Guru, an Ayahuasca expert, as well as an expert in metaphysics, astral forces, ethics and the dynamics of the human ego, was a serious mistake that has closed their works in Portugal.
Several recommendations were ignored in 2014, 15 and 17, that could have averted the disaster, but they were in their egos and thought they knew better and that making fun of the Spiritual Guru was wise, but now 100 people are dead as he foresaw, several are in prison on trafficking charges, the police are investigating the Santo Daime throughout Portugal, families have been torn apart by karma, having lost everything and some forced off the land by fires, now their works are CLOSED.
