You Are Our Mission

The Entrepreneurs Awakening Ayahuasca Mastermind programs are the only Ayahuasca programs that were specifically designed to resolve the unique psycho-emotional blocks holding entrepreneurial business leaders back from operating at their full potential.

Entrepreneurs Awakening’s success will ultimately be measured by how many incredible leaders we unleash over the coming decades.

How many truly inspiring leaders like Tony Hsieh will emerge after working with us? How many life changing thought leaders like Tim Ferriss will be inspired to venture forth onto the world stage? How many world-changing companies like Tesla will be born?

To this end, we are currently working on launching the Entrepreneurs Awakening podcast. The podcast will feature interviews with innovators who started working with Ayahuasca some time ago who are now ready to share their before and after story. Listeners will be inspired and informed about prep and integration best practices.

Entrepreneurs Awakening consists of an expert team that includes top executive coaches, therapists, a medical doctor, two board certified psychiatrists, and the best legal council imaginable.

More importantly, we have partnered with truly world class Ayahuasqueros who share our mission and vision. We also owe a debt of gratitude to our incredible advisors.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Javier Regueiro.
Before launching the first Machu Picchu Ayahuasca Mastermind, Michael spent 5 consecutive months in Peru drinking Ayahuasca with more than a dozen Ayahuasqueros in search of the one that would be perfect for entrepreneurs. Javier conducts his ceremonies in the traditional Peruvian mestizo style and limits his groups to 10 people so that he can deliver focused 1-to-1 support to each participant. Javier works out of his center in Peru exclusively and has been 100% focused on leading Ayahuasca ceremonies for the last 8 years, conducting more than 100 ceremonies per year.  Not long ago Javier published Ayahuasca: Soul Medicine of the Amazon Jungle: A Comprehensive and Practical Guide which has become the book many Ayahuasqueros recommend to people new to Ayahuasca.
