I want to report The Sanctuary 1860 Ayahuasca Retreat Centre and Earth Connection Portugal for questionable activities. They both run Ayahuasca retreats but the latter permanently closed after there was a drug bust in the family, which is documented here:-
On November 10th 2016 Johannes Maasland of Earth Connection Portugal was busted for 14 kilos of cannabis and LSD by the Portuguese military police (known as the GNR) see police tweet of seizure attached.
Earth Connection Portugal was run by two people, one of them is named Johannes Maasland, who is also a partner of the Sanctuary 1860 B & B Retreat in Oliveira do Hospital, which is also a newly established Ayahuasca retreat centre. [continued below]....
Johannes Maasland is complained about for criminal harassment of a witness in a criminal trial (who he threatened to kill whilst drunk - police report no GCLSA 37/17.0 GCLSA, see attached police witness summons for that) and for malicious defamation, implying that a Spiritual teacher was mentally ill (see screenshots of such abuse).
He was the one caught with the cannabis in Oliveira do Hospital. He thought I reported him to the police and he turned up one night in January 2017 adn threatened to put me in a wheelchair. I then contacted the police and received a witness summons, where I gave a statement about the death threats and threats of harm. He was then made to report to a police station three times a week instead of two whilst awaiting trial. He was on police bail when he made the threats.
He then implied on several online websites that I was mentally ill and should be afraid. He also clearly asked for more blogs to be posted (hence these reports). He claimed I should feel the fear in my trousers, mentally ill and that I was a loser, and as a result a malicious defamation claim was commenced (see screenshots)
Harassment online of criminal trial witnesses is very serious. These retreat centres claim, or have claimed, to be places of spiritual wisdom and power, but the plain truth is that they are family run businesses, and within the same family, there are cannabis arrests and police investigations, as well as lawsuits for harassment and defamation.
I gave them two weeks of grace to apologize for the threats, and several opportunities since. It has now been six months and there has been no apology. As a spiritual teacher, it becomes my moral duty to ensure such retreat centres are permanently closed, once I am threatened to be quiet in a criminal trial, and when there is drug trafficking going on, and when ethics and integrity in such operations is clearly non-existent.
There are attachments to show the police reports, the summons (with my name and address renoved for my safety), the threats made online, the people concerned, the GNR police tweet of the cannabis and the locations of the retreat centres to show they match the location of the police raid in Travanca/Oliveira do Hospital.
