ADRIAN FREEDMAN - Free Santo Daime Movement - Santo Daime Church JOHANNES MAASLAND, Cannabis in Portugal, Free Daime, Eternal Heart Centre, Santo Daime Church Portugal Abuse of Cannabis and Santo Daime / Administering Hallucinogenic Substances Irresponsibly Internet
Adrian Freedman is a musician operating under the name ETERNAL HEART MUSIC and also is the senior of the Santo Daime Church in the UK and Portugal. Adrian Freedman was involved / and is involved - in importing DMT across borders and in my opinion, administering and distributing hallucinogenic substances irresponsibly, and promoting cannabis use at such events, despite cannabis being illegal in Portugal. In 2010Two church directors smuggled a powerful hallucinogenic drug which was used as ceremonial drink at psychedelic services, a court heard.Adrian Freedman, 49, and Jane Liddell, 48, are said to have imported N, N-Dimethyltryptamine, or DMT, between January and November 2010.Freedman is a director of the Eternal Heart Centre in Totnes, South Devon, while Yorkshire-based Liddell is a director of the Church of The United Kingdom of Light.The psychedelic drug DMT, thought to have come from South America, is classified a class A drug under UK law, and is drunk in a tea by members of the two churches.Liddell and Freedman appeared in the dock at Southwark Crown Court for a brief plea and case management hearing. They are each charged individually with one count of fraudulent evasion of a prohibition on the importation of goods contrary to the Customs and Excise Management Act.They are also jointly charged with a count of conspiracy to contravene section 170 of the Customs and Excise Management Act 1979.Liddell and Freedman, a renowned Japanese flautist, entered not guilty pleas to the charges and were ordered to stand trial on October 19, 2012.Freedman, of Huxham's Cross, Dartington, Totnes, pleaded not guilty to being knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of a prohibition on the importation of goods contrary to the Customs and Excise Management Act between January 1 and November 18, 2010.Liddell, of Lee Road, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, also pleaded not guilty to the being knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of a prohibition on the importation of goods contrary to the Customs and Excise Management Act between January 1 and September 1, 2010.Both defendants pleaded not guilty to a charge of conspiracy to contravene section 170 of the Customs and Excise Management Act 1979 between January 1 and September 1, 2010. They were remanded on bail ahead of their next appearance at the same court next Adrian Freedman then went on to set up a Church in Portugal, with the help of associates, who would provide cannabis for the works (one was arrested last year with 14 kilos of it, and LSD) and who would take the risks importing it illegally across borders.He arranges for people to make car runs to drive the Santo Daime through countries where it is illegal and uses cannabis in works, grown by others, doing it illegally in Portugal. does not do such himself because otherwise he would have to take responsibility, so his followers take the risks / do the dirty work, so he can advance the aims of his movement, which is to spread Santo Daime through the West.But he has a poor ethical and moral awareness, and has admitted the matter reflects back lessons in such, yet he administers powerful hallucinogenic substances to anyone who attends, and then promotes cannabis use, despite the founding father Mestre Irineu being against it.Then some of his attendees get into trouble and in one case, his associates were arrests with cannabis, cannabis grown to supply to people attending his ceremonies as well as elsewhere.The cannabis the police found in the home of an associate of Adrian Freedman, was worth Euro 70, 000. It was confiscated, proof same person arrested, was also importing concentrate Santo Daime in ways to avoid police detection.His Church always play the victim card as the screenshots show, and they say nothing about taking responsibility for doing such activities. Many of the problems in the Portugal Santo Daime Church (including arrests and busts for cannabis cultivation) can be attributed to the Santo Daime Church in Portugal having a lax attitude toward mixing cannabis and Santo Daime, even though that went against the teachings and wishes of the founding father of the Daime Church, Mestre Irineu.Others in the movement have alluded to marijuana degenerates morals and ethics (as is self-evident in Portugal) His associate threatened to put a spiritual mentor in a wheelchair, and also claimed that he would be killed before the police could do anything (see screenshot of death threat and here) and thus this movement has serious moral lessons to learn about respecting the medicine and this serves as a lesson to Mr Freedman as to why administering and distributing hallucinogenic substances irresponsibly, with cannabis (illegal in Portugal), backfires and makes for big trouble.Adrian Freedman has yet to properly apologize and take responsibility for his role in all of this, behaviours that over the years, he has blessed to varying degrees, and then failed to assume responsibility, despite being a senior leader of the Church.He was more concerned about people finding out and the reputation of his music business rather than taking proper responsibility for what he has created through his actions. See screenshots for proof of importations, police raids amongst associates, reports linked above for other proof and screenshots showing news websites about the importations of Class A substances and a statement by the police. My partner was also made to fear for her safety because she is a witness to some of the behaviour, and Adrian Freedman totally ignored her concerns. Adrian's associate faces trial shortly for cannabis trafficking (see links above) which was grown to supply Ayahuasca ceremonies in Portugal, run by Adrian Freedman and the Santo Daime Church (aka the Eternal Heart Centre)

Adrian Freedman ETERNAL HEART MUSIC / Santo Daime Ayahuasca Ceremonies Portugal, Free Santo Daime, Johannes Maasland, Eternal Heart Centre UK Professional Musician in Cannabis, Ayahuasca and Death threats Scandal, Denying responsibility for Cannabis / Substance Abuse in his Movement Internet
Adrian Freedman is a professional musician operating under the name ETERNAL HEART MUSIC. Eternal Heart is also the name for underground Santo Daime (Ayahuasca tea) ceremonies that involve people drinking large amounts of hallucinogenic Santo Daime tea, with cannabis. Adrian Freedman set up such retreats in Portugal after avoiding (narrowly) criminal prosecution in the United Kingdom for importing Ayahuasca tea in violation of Customs and Excise laws, and spent 18 months with an anklet.Despite that, he thought it was a good idea (and one that comes with no ethical or moral responsibility) to bring the Santo Daime (Ayahuasca tea) to Portugal, and then promote cannabis use. It went badly wrong as one of Adrian's friends thought growing 14 kilos of cannabis at a publically advertised Ayahuasca retreat centre was intelligent. If that is not enough, his 'friend' who claimed to be importing lots of Ayahuasca for Adrian Freedman's Church, was then arrested with 14 kilos of the substance, and then proclaimed he had the power to kill people, for which there is clear proof HERE individual was named Johannes and his operation was spawned by Adrian Freedman's poor awareness, which believed that helping amateurs to set up and distribute Santo Daime / Ayahuasca Centres, is clever. Adrian claimed no responsibility when Johannes went on to not take responsibility for his actions, and claimed he had the power to kill people.Adrian Freedman's Church has a long history of playing the persecution story and blaming other people for their problems, including the authorities, when all they are doing, is making their own karma by importing Class A drugs into the UK and other countries, and then supporting and condoning illegal cannabis operations in Portugal. That is because cannabis is in high demand at the retreats.Adrian Freedman was more interested in people not finding out because of his professional music career, rather than stopping to attend to his responsibilities in making good for the damage done by his followers cultivating substances for the Ayahuasca ceremonies and then threatening to hurt or kill people. Some of his Church went on to engage in behaviour that includes harassment of trial witnesses, making death threats, abuse, threatening people and stalking (whilst making threats to put people in wheelchairs)This is because these people were corrupted by the combination of egoism, cannabis and Ayahuasca, because they had no moral guidance, and were taught to not take responsibility and blame others for their troubles, as that is what the Church does (of which Adrian Freedman is a senior), whilst they continue their questionable activities of supporting and condoning illegal substance abuse/distribution, as well as abuse of the sacrament.Proofs of allegations in these links and in screenshots submitted is also added to the report to substantiate the serious allegations made.

Santo Daime Church UK, Portugal, Netherlands, Brazil Adrian Freedman, Free Santo Daime movement, Santo Daime Portugal Questionable Importation of DMT containing substances through airports and borders, threats and vilification of whistleblowers, cannabis arrests in Santo Daime Church Portugal Internet
Under the category of Questionable Activities is reported the Santo Daime Church who operate in Brazil, Europe, the UK, Portugal and the Netherlands.They are reported ro trying to flout DMT substance laws, as their members often transport the DMT containing sacrament overseas, and then claim the victim story (war on drugs) when they are caught.See screenshots showing how in various countries, there have been arrests, and how those arrested, play the victim story with regard to the war on drugs, whereas in reality, they are transporting DMT substances across borders, in violation of various laws, and so they make their own trouble.I as a whistleblower was threatened with serious harm by some within the Church who have been caught with cannabis and face prison, after being caught with 14 kilos of it and LSD.Before his arrest he was importing large amounts of Santo Daime into the country and made threats to kill a whistleblower, see Europe the Santo Daime Church is run by Adrian Freedman who was arrested in 2010, with the substance, and then went on to import it into Portugal, via associates, who have now been arrested on cannabis traficking charges, see something is illegal, or potentially illegal, the first thing to do is to clearly respect law.Rather than importing gallons of a potentially illegal substance through customs, as the Church did in the run up to 2010 (declared as something else to avoid detection), asking proper permission from the authorities might be more appropriate, whether that be by asking a Court, or seeking permission from the police.Santo Daime Church members often do ‘Daime runs’ which involves transporting sacrament in cars, in a clandestine manner from places such as Italy (where it is legal) to Portugal, which clearly involves driving through France.This is done to bring the Daime to people in other countries.Sometimes, if you get involved with the Church, you can get a free plane ticket if you import some Daime. If you get caught at the airport or a border and face prison, the Church will then ask its followers for big donations to help to prevent you going to prison!?One might ask why the Santo Daime Church promotes this behaviour, and instead does not simply stick with countries where it has the permission ? If you have been caught in a country, and narrowly avoided prison, doing it elsewhere, and flouting laws in Europe, is highly questionable.The Church then plays the victim card and emails its followers, asking for large donations to help with legal defence, when members are caught, doing the above (transporting a potentially illegal substance across a border with full knowledge of the risks).This is NOT the way to get respect from the authorities. I am a witness in a criminal trial related to the cannabis found at the property of one within the Church, and was subjected to death threats to be quiet to the police, and this brings to light the questionable behaviour at the heart of this movement. It wants to free the sacrament, but it takes chances with the law, and brings about its own troubles.

ADRIAN FREEDMAN Eternal Heart Ayahuasca Groups PORTUGAL Santo Daime Church ,ICEFLU, Eternal Heart Music, Ayahuasca Retreats, Shakuhachi Composer LEADERSHIP CRISIS, Followers Under Police Investigation for Substances, Death Threats, Ethical Leadership Problems, Failure to take leadership responsibility and to condemn BAD BEHAVIOUR
Adrian Freedman is reported for having a serious leadership crisis which he shows no interest in taking responsibility for.He and his movement organize Ayahuasca (Santo Daime) retreats in Portugal under the name of the Eternal Heart.This involves participants being given hallucingenic substance which makes people have visionary experiences, and there is music, and cannabis is often brought to the retreats and shared around. In itself that may seem not such a big deal, but in Portugal, cultivation of cannabis is illegal, and caused members of his following to get raided and caught with 14 kilos, who now face trial for drug trafficking under Portuguese law, which carries a sentence of up to 12 years prison.It is these people were friends and associates of Adrian Freedman, a fact he chose to deny as he then stated he assumes no responsibility for what people do.The trouble is, these people and their family, and indeed other members of Adrian's group, went on to engage in harassment of trial witnesses, labelling people homosexual peodophiles, insulting them, inciting hate speech and even going as far as saying that someone would be killed before the police can help.There is documented proof of all that abuse at the hands of Adrian Freedman's movement, which in Portugal, imports Ayahuasca tea (there was a raid in 2011) here is the proof of the death threats made on this talks about unsuited shamans, drug busts, police issues, death threats (all documented clearly to substantiate the allegations) and they are members of Adrian Freedmans Santo Daime Ayahuasca Church in Portugal.Some of those individuals then went on to label a trial witness sick, evil, twisted, should feel fear in his trousers, would be set upon by dogs, was a homosexual peodophile, and it was suggested his life would be taken, or he would be put in a wheelchair.The Portugal GNR became involved and police reports were filed GCLSA 37.17.0These people began their operations as a result of Adrian Freedman's blessing because he needs people in Portugal to import the substance, to grow cannabis to share at ceremonies and to host retreats, so he helps them by setting them up with imports of Santo Daime, which he later conveniently denies, but the reports show that all involved in this are Santo Daime Church members.Adrian was asked to formally condemn the behaviour but took no interest in doing so, even in the face of serious immoral, wrong behaviour, and instead, had some role in inciting his business associates to behave similarily, causing them to send hate mail and obnoxious insults to those assisting police in their investigations. In my opinion Adrian Freedman is ill suited to lead any Santo Daime or Ayahuasca Ceremony in any context and would be well advised to take a big step back and do some internal reflection with regard to the dysfunctions in his own movement (The Santo Daime Church) which believes that I should take the detriment for. These dysfunctions include threatening to kill or hurt people, excessive egoism, huburis, disrespect for the Santo Daime, being involved in drug trafficking, flouting customs laws, not paying taxes and a whole host of other behaviours that show the movement as a whole, is very poor when it comes to taking karmic responsibility for its troubles. Once I am threatened with death, it clearly brings up very serious lessons for resolution. If it does not want to look at the lessons, because it brings up feelings of shame or dishonour, it does not mean the lessons are not there for learning. Once a movement heavily involved with abuse of the sacrament and condoning behaviour such as illegal cannabis cultivation, and turning a blind eye to death threats, or serious safety concerns raised by others made to fear for their safety by the behaviour of some of its representatives, does not want to take responsibility, ultimately, it shows the leaders of such, are not fit to lead. It may be a very painful lesson for Mr Adrian Freedman, but the truth is he is not fit to lead and should step back and to work on the lessons.

ADRIAN FREEDMAN Eternal Heart Centre, Santo Daime Church UK, Europe, Portugal. Ayahuasca in Europe. Importing Santo Daime (Ayahuasca tea) across borders, underground operations in other countries, his followers in police trouble for cannabis, ethics issues DARTINGTON Internet
Adrian Freedman is the head of the Santo Daime Church in the UK which operates under the name of Eternal Heart Centre at Companies House UK. In 2010 , he was caught importing Ayahuasca (a DMT containing substance) into the UK, and was put on bail for two years pending trial. quote the site  After two years on bail awaiting trial in the criminal courts in London, and just a few weeks before the start of pre-trial hearings, the case against two leaders of the Santo Daime Church in the UK has been dramatically dropped after the Crown Prosecution Service decided to abandon their case.andHowever the situation is far from over, as the Prosecution also wrote in their letter that It is not accepted that the N-Dimethyltrptamie (DMT) found in the tea falls outside prohibition imposed by the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. In other words they still maintain that ayahuasca is illegal and so fresh attempts to import it could result in arrest or prosecution.Quite where this leaves us in terms of next steps is difficult to say, at least until after the next court hearing, but both Adrian and Jane are committed to continuing this battle until the use of the Daime as a sacrament is given the legal recognition it deserves.Adrian Freedman then set up an underground Santo Daime Church in Portugal, and despite what happened in 2010, then encouraged members of the Church to drive Santo Daime across borders illegally.If something is illegal, or potentially illegal, the first thing to do is to clearly respect law.Rather than importing gallons of a potentially illegal substance through customs, as the Church did in the run up to 2010 (declared as something else to avoid detection), asking proper permission from the authorities might be more appropriate, whether that be by asking a Court, or seeking permission from the police.Santo Daime Church members often do ‘Daime runs’ which involves transporting sacrament in cars, in a clandestine manner from places such as Italy (where it is legal) to Portugal, which clearly involves driving through France.This is done to bring the Daime to people in other countries.Sometimes, if you get involved with the Church, you can get a free plane ticket if you import some Daime. If you get caught at the airport or a border and face prison, the Church will then ask its followers for big donations to help to prevent you going to prison!?One might ask why the Santo Daime Church promotes this behaviour, and instead does not simply stick with countries where it has the permission ?If you have been caught in a country, and narrowly avoided prison, doing it elsewhere, and flouting laws in Europe, is highly questionable.The Church then plays the victim card and emails its followers, asking for large donations to help with legal defence, when members are caught, doing the above (transporting a potentially illegal substance across a border with full knowledge of the risks).This is NOT the way to get respect from the authorities.A member of Adrian Freedman’s Santo Daime Church, as well as an ‘associate’ of his, was arrested with 14 kilos of cannabis in 2016, by the Portugal GNR, and he was importing large amounts of Santo Daime, in concentrate form, in ways to avoid customs and police detection.The police now know that Ayahuasca Retreat Centres are places where illegal substances, including cannabis, might be found, a big blow for the Free Daime movementNext :- Do NOT then encourage, condone or promote any kind of other potentially illegal activity, especially connected with other banned substances, including cannabis.For some reason, despite the opinions of the founding father Mestre Irineu, Adrian Freedman thought that the use of cannabis at Santo Daime gatherings (in a country where it is an arrestable offence) was wise.Because what then happens, is people in the Santo Daime Church decide to grow cannabis, and then get caught. See:- seems then, the detriment in this matter is clearly the fault of the Portugal Santo Daime Church and Adrian Freedman, for allowing cannabis to be used in the works, and then encouraging others to bring and share, which then necessitates the production and cultivation of an illegal substance, all against the teachings of the founding father of their very own Church!As the movement allows cannabis to be used in works, and has ignored previous feedback about how it degrades awareness, it clearly brought about its own troubles, hardly supportive to the Santo Daime movements desire to procure freedom for the sacrament.This tells the authorities that the Church does not respect law, and its members are involved in other illegal things, and then how can one expect respect from the authoritiesSee proof of Santo Daime Importation case in UK, as well as screenshots showing police tweets of cannabis found in Portugal as well as a link to where his follower Johannes, shows he is in trouble with the Freedman said that the Church never assumes responsibility for what people do but he is one of the seniors of the Church, who imports Santo Daime tea across borders, gets into trouble, and promotes cannabis use at retreats.

For those looking to drink Ayahuaca in Portugal be aware that there are amateurs on the ground with limited experience in Ayahuasca that do not really know what they are doing and are not skilled in holding a space for healing.Some of the shamans have toxic relationship issues, alcohol and violence issues as they openly admit on their Facebook walls, and others do it for popularity, to be number 1 in Portugal for Ayahuasca whilst overlooking ethics and integrity.Two Ayahuasca retreat centres in Portugal to avoid are The Sanctuary 1860 Ayahuasca Retreat Centre and Earth Connection Portugal. The Ayahuasca shamans of the latter were raided by police and face drug trafficking charges, the former are business partners with them. For more information about these centres, the police raids and the scandal visit:- These shamans do not follow the sacred dieta nor respect the medicine and thus one may not have the best experience.

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 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.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.

Untrained and Unskilled Ayahuasca Facilitators operating Ayahuasca Retreat Centres in Portugal without ethical, moral or shamanic training in holding spaces for participants, risk of metaphysical harm or danger
Unregulated and untrained amateur Ayahuasca Shamans operating in Portugal and Europe put participants metaphysical wellbeing in danger and such Centres should be avoided.   One Centre is the Sanctuary 1860 Ayahuasca Retreat in Portugal who advertise Ayahuasca Ceremonies in Portugal and Europe. To quote an expert:- Ayahuasca is a medicine that has an ancestral tradition of many thousands of years and MUST be applied using proven techniques which have been in use for centuries. It is a medicine and, like all medicines, it must be administered in the proper quantities and dosage as indicated by a specialist. Used in large quantities Ayahuasca may resemble a type of poison with many negative effects on the participants. The facilitator is a shaman – a physician whose obligation is to know how to identify the issues of all participants and give them adequate treatment. To have the good intention of helping others does not suffice. The person who administers ayahuasca without adequate preparation will potentially assist 5 people meanwhile placing 30 others in danger – the costs are of no return, not to mention the karmic debt.   and   It is only within ceremonies conducted with a Maestro (a proper Shaman), in small groups, that one can be assured of safety from such dangers. If these entities are incorporated within the body of a person (especially in the neck region) they can cause lack of energy, various illnesses and perturbations in life. Those operating as amateurs in Europe do it to be number one and for money, but forget that without the right moral and ethical grounding, or the right training, their intentions to help people, only harm and put people in serious danger.   NEVER EVER drink Santo Daime or Ayahuasca anywhere with untrained shamans or amateur guides. Ask to see a Shamanic Training Certification and a Code of Ethics that many reputable centres will have.

They were introduced to the Ayahuasca by Johannes Maasland (a bad example for he did not respect the law) and have not been properly initiated by an Ayahuasca shaman, and have just decided to do it themselves as amateurs, with no respect for local laws or toward those they work with.When one partners up with people in police trouble, it sends out the wrong message, and is not a recipe for business success, especially when people are wrongly accused of being police informants.

People risk losing deposits. Oliveira do Hospital
Filed under questionable activities and complained about are Sanctuary 1860 Ayahuasca Retreat Centre PORTUGAL, Earth Connection PORTUGAL, Johannes Maasland, and other associates Daniela Markert, Alexandra and Attila Akat.This is reported in the public interest for those looking to consume Ayahuasca tea ( a shamanic psychedelic medicine) in Portugal. There is a major scandal on the ground in Portugal because some amateurs without any shamanic training certificates or any other accreditation, have set up two retreat centres, one called Earth Connection Portugal and one called Sanctuary 1860 Ayahuasca Retreat Portugal.The matter is detailed If you do not find experienced shamans, it is dangerous to drink Ayahuasca, because amateurs cannot handle the energy navigate the medicine space or attend to deeper difficulties in a ceremony. When amateurs set up such retreats for profit and with the intention of being number one in Portugal for Ayahuasca, the intention is not pure and trouble must only partake in Ayahuasca with accredited or properly trained shamans who have been initiated in the Amazon Rainforest.The scandal involves several things that people should know about.1. A police raid for cannabis in the family. See proof in the pictures showing the police tweets and showing that the retreat centre busted was in Travanca, matching the police tweets, there is also police arrest snapshots from the Portuguse police (GNR) website.This happened at Earth Connection Portugal which has now PERMANENTLY CLOSED.This is because of the police raid in which 14 kilos of cannabis and LSD was seized, with the suspect awaiting Earth Connection Portugal basically passed on their Ayahuasa business (after the raid) to their family members Alexandra and Attila Akat who have NO shamanic training whatsover, yet offer shamanic Ayahuasca retreats.3. The shaman of Earth Connection Portugal made death threats toward a Spiritual Master falsely accusing him of being a police informant and is now facing trial in Portugal alongside the cannabis - police report reference number (37.17.0 GLCSA)4. Because of the scandal, retreats may be cancelled at short notice and deposits lost, as there are police investigations currently ongoing and Court cases scheduled later this year.5. Sanctuary 1860 Ayahuasca Retreat Centre is expected to close, as the amateur shaman arrested for cannabis makes their Ayahuasca, and once there is no Ayahuasca, there are no retreats. Be careful.6. The retreat centres mentioned have no ethical codes or guidelines on their website.The whole matter is a major PR disaster. Google Ayahuasca Portugal Scandal.See also screenshots of the police raids and the cannabis found, as well as other evidence including extracts of police reports asking for restraining orders and the like.

Paperwork reveals the car was in a crash in Scranton in which driver Michael Curtis had been drinking and in possession of marijuana. Curtis worked at Santo Volvo and sold the car to the Tulaneys after the wrecked car was repaired and put back into the lot as new. The Tulaneys bought it not knowing it was in a wreck. SantoVolvo owner Greg Santo would not comment on the matter. Sources said consumer fraud investigators are looking at two potential violations of state law. Dealers cannot sell a car with significant damage as new and cannot sell a car with more than 5,000 miles as new. The Tulaney's paperwork showed the car they bought had 6,200 miles.

Yo tuve que ir 3 veces porque el trabajo que hicieron de reparacion no funciono y aunque dice mi factura que tengo 6 meses de garantia ellos no honraban la garantia y me dijeron que solo hay garantia de 1 mes. No son decentes, son ladrones. No pierdan su dinero en esta tienda. Ahora mismo estoy llenando formularios para denunciar y demandar la tienda en la sabana larga no 49 y a la direccion registrada de los directores en la calle mazoneria no 101 y su gestor Alvin Gendrys Noboa Mendez y el titular Yadira Giselle Polanco Matos. Yo se que han quedado mal con otra gente tambien. Estare creando una en FB, IG, Twitter y una pagina del web para que nos juntemos y hablemos de este negocio mientras protegemos el publico.Mira mi video en YouTube sobre el caso, buscan No Vayan A COMPUTADORAS REY & REYI was charged 1,200 pesos to fix the screen of my laptop that was blinking and I was told that I had a 6 month warranty as written on my bill. A month later my screen was blinking again in the same way. He returned and repaired it. A month later I was already blinking again and this company told me that my warranty was only 1 month and I was thrown out of their store without fixing the screen.This business does fraud, they do not have customer service and they take money as it is nothing and they promise until the moon, but when their service does not work and you go to the store to solve the case, it does not care and does not honor your guarantee. I had to go 3 times because the repair work did not work and although my invoice says that I have 6 months warranty they did not honor the warranty and I was told that there is only 1 month warranty. They are not decent, they are thieves. Do not waste your money on this store. Right now I am filling out forms to denounce and sue the store in the long savannah no 49 and the registered address of the directors in the street mazoneria no 101 and its manager Alvin Gendrys Noboa Mendez and the holder Yadira Giselle Polanco Matos. I know they have been wrong with other people too. I will be creating one in FB, IG, Twitter and a web page so we can get together and talk about this business while protecting the public.Watch my video on YouTube on the case, look for Do not go to COMPUTERS REY & REY

Santo Gallo Plumber Santo's PlumbingSanto GalloJSGallo Plumbing Disreputable, Untrustworthy, Dishonest and Ruthless Toronto and area Ontario
Mr. Santo Gallo's appointment to a bathroom project proved to be a terrible experience. His work caused many problems to the home and we would like to make a very clear warning to those in the community. It's my opinion, that Santo can not be trusted, and will attempt to extract as much profit from your job as possible using ruthless tactics-- he will not do what he says, he will simply do what he thinks he can get away with. Please engage Mr. Santo Gallo with extreme caution, and consider going with another plumber instead.   He works in the Toronto area.

Santo Sport Store Santo Sports Total ripoff and waste of money Chicago Ridge Illinois
All I can say is do not shop at Santo Sport Store.  Only go there if you want to be disappointed in quality, quantity, and pricing.  They do not have much to offer there at all, everything is very out of date, and overpriced.  The place is a mess, very dark inside and hard to see, and he's ripping everyone off blind with his outrageous prices.   The owner goes by Mr. Santo which is comical.  Him and his wife used to take karate back in the day with me, and they wore those goggle glasses during classes, it was sad.  Maybe that's what gave him the confidence to yell and scream at customers.  I even heard from someone that he hung up on a job applicant over the phone.  Absolutely terrible.   Don't go to this store.

Robert Baker & Burt Webber Treasure Hunter rip off artist and tirant while out at sea Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Claims to be a christian and has honesty and will take your money and run. Extremly strange and unstable person that lacks any grip on reality. I recently worked for him onboard a ship in the Gulf on a project in the DR. He owes me money and refused to pay. He is setting up shareholders with false reports and is trying to make his treasure hunting project more than it is. He consistantly quotes from the bible and envokes the wrath of god and acts as if he is connected to the almighty. He is dangerous and very unstable and also doesnt pay his bills. When I asked for my money he said get in line!!!

Hans Witsenboer Nebuladom exploitation of Dominican programmers, unfair interviews, work-from-home schemes, operating illegally, plagiarism, IP theft Santo Domingo, Internet
I was interviewed twice by this company in the Dominican Republic and started doing work for the owner, who is a foreigner. He refused to pay me and promised me a great package in the future. However I had to quit my job before I could accept the offer, and as a new unestablished company it was an unreasonable risk that he was asking from me. I was already in an exploited situation in the workplace. A lot of programmers in the Dominican Republic hope to improve their situations as they have to work in sub-par conditions.Some of the content on his web site is plagiarized from other people who have worked for him, including graphic, web and writing work. He used to call himself Dutch thinking consulting and was the CEO before using other names. He says that stealing somebody else's idea is allowed if it is a good one, and priceless things come for free.

Wesley Chapel, Florida Donna Santo, Donna Michelle Santo, Veronica Preusch, Ronnie Preusch, Mark Chavez, Mark Allen Chavez  8815 shenandoah run,  BEWARE- LEAKING ROOF AND SEPTIC- DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME Wesley Chapel Florida
BEWARE!   The listing at 8815 Shenandoah Run, Wesley Chapel FL 33544 is an absolute waste of time.  Donna Santo (VP Sale GM Financial, Americredit), her loser live-in boyfirend Mark Chavez, and their realtor Veronica Preusch (aka Ronnie Preusch) are all full of sh*t.At best, they are complete morons.  At worst, they are pathological liars.  Either way, they are time wasters who seem to have no interest in actually selling this home.  The house has been listed for sale for almost 10 years!  That is not a typo- since 2008.  Nothing is on the market this long if the owner has any intention of actually selling the home.  8815 Shenandoah Run, Wesley Chapel has known leak issues (roof and septic), not to mention every queen palm on the property is rotting- 7 in total.  The first red flag is the three colored roof- not one or two different tiles, these idiots actually have three different colored tiles on the roof.  The roof also has a large leak.  There has been virtually no rain in months and still the leak is obvious.  Just imagine how bad it will come the summer rain.The septic is even worse!  Terribly designed and clearly neglected for years.  These dopes put the drain field right between two rows of large oak trees.  In fact, a large crack was discovered during inspection- caused by an oak tree root.  This wasn't even close to the drain field.  If tree roots are causing damage this far away, one can only imagine just how much damaged the drain field must be.  Not a cheap fix- roughly $10,000+ for new raised drain fields.  Here is the amazing part- they claimed to have no knowledge of the leak.  Here are the facts- decide for yourself if you believe them.1) There has been almost no rain in Tampa/Wesley Chapel for months, yet there is a large spot of standing water near the drain field in their back yard.  To put this in perspective, the rest of the yard is so bone dry it's crunchy, yet they did not notice the pool of standing sewage in one spot??  Seriously??  Maybe they are really that stupid, who knows, but if they don't disclose this, you'll have your answer.This is how the loser owner (and her even bigger loser boyfriend) fix things at 8815 Shenandoah Run- the pool/spa heater stopped working, so it was ripped out and the electric lines were left exposed.  A nice touch for a $700,000 home.  If you want someone's kept man standing over you during every showing and inspection, this is the home for you.  A 50 year old loser who lives in his girlfriend's house, isn't even on the title or mortgage, will go out of his way to make anyone and everyone feel uncomfortable.  You know the type- drives a pick up truck to overcompensate and parks at the end of the driveway any time a visit is scheduled so no other cars can pull in.  You would think the realtor would put a stop to that, but she's as dumb as a box of rocks and clearly has no back bone.Something is fishy about the whole thing- either way, 8815 Shenandoah Run, Wesley Chapel FL 33544 is an absolute waste of time.  Thinking of buying or selling a home, Veronica Ronnie Preusch should be your last choice- there are much better realtors n the area.  In fact, having no realtor is better then using her.CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED about  8815 Shenandoah Run, Wesley Chapel....

Yo le compro ropa y otras cosas porque no tenia. Despues invito a mi hermana para vistarme y despues comemos y bebemos y hizo una cuenta grande. Ahora el amigo mio que puso la tarjeta saco el dinero que tenia y quedamos debiendo dinero a el hotel. Como la reserva estaba en su nombre.. El siente responsable. El amigo mio fue para nueva York y no contesta..Ahora tenemos una problema.

We woke up together and then went to a hotel together in the Capital .. The Radisson .. I was not carrying my passport because I was renewing it and made the reservation in his name ... without having to pay a single one. A friend of mine put his card by incidentals and it was fine. I bought clothes and other things because I did not have them. Then I invite my sister to get dressed and then we eat and drink and she made a big bill. Now my friend who put the card got the money he had and we were owed money to the hotel. As the reservation was in his name .. He feels responsible. My friend went to New York and does not answer ...

Yorbania Altragracia Hernandez is a Thief. She is Guilty of Purgery and Grand Theft, Ripoff! Santo Domingo Dominican Republic
I lived in Santo Domingo for a few months, and met this lady named Yorbania Altagracia Hernandez in Katanga, Los Mina of Santo Domingo. She was a Mormon and seemed like a nice, religious lady. She was just a friend, nothing romantic. She was very obese with harry legs, armpits, etc, and I was not attracted to this type of women. But we were friends. Anyway, I met a nice lady and moved back to the United States to marry her, and in doing so, I left all my belongings in care of Yorbania. I planned to return back to Santo Domingo with my wife. Well, when I left, Yorbania stole and sold everything I owned, which included, my computer, digital camera, tv, refridgerator, couches, bed, stove, washing machine, tables, kitchen ware, my clothes and personal items, guitar and more. This lady is a low class crook. I had a lawyer represent my case, and she lied in court, committing purgery, saying I was her husband and that I cheated on her. I could not afford to travel back to the Dominican Republic, so she got away with all her lies. She is sick lady, a purgeror and guilty of grand theft. If anyone else finds this thief on the internet, stay away from her. She is a sick person. I have one message for you Yorbania Hernandez : You can lie in court, and you can lie to your neighbors, but when you DIE, you will face GOD and pay for all the pain you have put me and my wife through.
