  • Kahpi is the result of a large collective energy of people with long-term engagement with the realities of ayahuasca culture, science and experiences.

  • We carefully selected 10 world renowned teachers and designed a powerful series of ayahuasca video courses.

  • We are a charity organization and are grateful to receive generous donations from around the world. These donations enable us to offer the Kahpi courses free to access. We are currently developing 2 new courses, focused on techniques of ayahuasca journeying, integration and related topics, and we need some financial help to get them complete.
