The present essay summarizes the main contents about the research for the master degree:  “Santo Daime: Theo- ecology and adaptation to modern times”, concluded in 2005 at the Post-Graduation Program on Social Psychology -UERJ.  This doctrine uses in it’s rituals a tea with psychoactive properties and also, the singing of a series of anthems, which according to the followers, have power of cure and knowledge. A discourse analysis of the most sung anthems, and semi-directed interviews was performed, to aim at knowing  Santo Daime’s social constructions  nowadays better. The Social Representation Theory and the Social Memory Theory were used to make an analysis of the following issues: to know what kind of psycho-sociological  aspects are built among the Santo Daime’s religious experience and understand the expansion of the doctrine to Brazil’s biggest cities and abroad which was performed by the Amazon daimists and  “foreigners” , during the 70’s and 80’s.
