Who We Are
The Institute of Ancestral Ceremonies is a nonprofit church organization situated out of the USA. We are pioneering a holistic approach to spiritual development through traditional, ancestral ceremonies supported by modern therapeutic practices.
The Institute of Ancestral Ceremonies signifies the dawn of a new age. An age where old and new transformational practices are brought together for the betterment of mankind. The concept was born in the rainforest of Peru by founder Eva during a time of introspection. Her vision was simple; create a safe and accessible space for friends, family and community to experience the power of ancient, ancestral ceremonies honed and perfected over centuries by true experts who dedicated their lives to this over many generations. Providing the tools and support to integrate the transformations and healings gained from those ceremonies into day-to-day life aimed at fostering long-lasting results makes the Institute what it is today.
We are committed to the sustainable and ethical harvesting of earth medicines. We, therefore, actively support organizations dedicated to the preservation of the native habitats and indigenous guardians of these earth medicines.
We believe that earth medicines were manifested by Great Spirit in order for all humans, regardless of religion, race, sex, or gender, to facilitate community with the divine. We believe that the traditional sacramental use of earth medicines is an activity beneficial for the expansion of consciousness and spiritual development.
