6. Language
Brazilian Portuguese is the spoken language. There are several English-speaking aides at the Casa. Spanish, Italian, and German languages are also spoken by a few villagers and staff members (see 17).

7. What to Pack
Brazil’s subtropical temperatures vary only slightly annually in this high plateau region. The dry season runs from May to October. Daytime temperatures average 75-85° F/23-30°C, with cooler evenings and early mornings. You may wish to pack a light sweater or jacket, and rain gear.

Bring comfortable, loose-fitting white or light-colored clothing for visiting the Casa (preferable, but not mandatory), casual clothing for elsewhere, a towel (although most pousadas supply small ones), wash cloth, personal soap, laundry detergent, voltage transformer and adapter for any electrical appliances (voltage is 22O), mosquito repellent and umbrella (during rainy season), sunscreen, sun hat, comfortable shoes, camera, flashlight, film, Portuguese/English phrasebook/dictionary. (see 6), and a small folding seat if you cannot stand comfortably for long periods and wish to sit close to the stage.

8. Bringing photos & written requests of others
You may bring a photo or written request of someone to present to the Entity. When making a request for healing, first obtain permission from the person who will be receiving a healing. In the same way he forms a blueprint of a person standing before him, the Entity connects energetically with the person via the photo image. A photo is better than a written request; a recent photo is better than an old one. If no photo is available, you may present an article of clothing, recently worn, preferably unlaundered. If neither of these options is available, supply the name, address and age or birth date of the person. (details section 26)
