The Concentration is the first ritual that was revealed to Master Irineu. An essential part of the ritual is a silent, group meditation. Generally held on the 15th and 30th of every month, the Concentration provides an accessible ritual for participants to experience the Daime and be in communion from a space of meditation. The hymns that are sung during the Cura are powerful hymns in which spiritual entities are called upon to assist those in need of healing and support. As the Santo Daime religion has a strong syncretic nature, these entities have roots in the African spiritist traditions, the celestial constellations, the forces of nature, the earth based traditions of the rainforest, Christian deities such as God the Father, the Holy Mother, Jesus Christ, and the angels and archangels.

It's been 10 years since I first set up nossairmandade. In that time I've learned a whole lot about the Daime that I didn't know when I started.
I've also learned a lot about making websites. I've been wanting to overhaul the site for a long time but never quite got to it.
Well, I've had some extra time on my hands lately and so I went ahead and did it. I know change can be hard, especially with websites we're familiar with and rely on. I'm sorry. I promise that just about everything is still here. I just cleaned the code, moved things around a little, and set myself on a much easier path to updating the site in the future.
Please take your time, explore the new site, and let me know if I made any mistakes. I hope to hear from you. Our founder, master teacher, and friend, Mestre Irineu. A star of the doctrine of the Santo Daime.

Santo Daime hymns
Sacred music and dance are fundamental to the Santo Daime religion. While the rituals and music originated with a very few hymns, sung by a small group in the Brazilian Amazon, the practice of these spiritual works in diverse parts of the world since it began expansion around the beginning of the s has given rise to a significant body of music, in many languages. Daimistas from Brazil and other countries have contributed to this growing genre, while continuing to sing the principle hinarios in Portuguese. Among adherents to the doctrine, songs tend to be referred to as 'received'  from a spiritual source rather than written from the writers mind alone and confirmed by their use in ritual. Variously these hymns may be viewed as 'calling' energies or divine entities, as transmitting sacred doctrine, as bringing healing through the act of singing what the community is affirming are eternal truths. In the spiritual works and communities of Santo Daime, the hymns are a bond of shared understanding and a daily practice. New hymns are often introduced in ceremony by those who receive them, by the leader's invitation.
