Native to The Amazon rainforest, Ayahuasca is a brew used ceremonially. For thousands of years this master plant teacher has been used to bring about healing, wisdom and rites of passage. Her job is to clean you and free you from conditioning and even illness; the rest is up to you.
The medicine is composed of the Ayahuasca vine (Banisteriopsis Caapi) and Chacruna Leaves (Psychotria Viridis). Together, they create a magical, symbiotic relationship whereby one contains Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) and one contains what is known as Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs), without which the DMT would not be able to take effect. Due to the DMT content, Ayahuasca remains illegal in many countries.
This Medicine has a strong energy with the potential to help you clear trauma, repeating patterns, addiction and more. The conscious intelligence of this plant can take you deep into yourself, your emotions, your experiences and areas that need healing, I like to call this process reconnection with the true self. The aim is to realign your mind, body, spirit, energy and heart, allowing you to become free of any spiritual, emotional or physical sickness or shackles that hold you back, potentially opening you up to exploring new gifts and avenues in life.
A ceremony usually lasts around 5-6 hours, but can be longer, and should be strongly guided and held by a trained and experienced curandero. You can expect songs, rituals and prayers.
There is research available showing that working properly with Ayahuasca can really help people overcome some issues and mental health problems including depression, PTSD, Anxiety, Trauma, low self-image and more. This is because the Medicine is a technology, an intelligence that can take you deep into your unconscious, as well as out to the farthest reaches of consciousness. She can show you what is hidden so that you can reconnect to yourself in ways you wouldn’t have imagined.
An Ayahuasca diet or dieta is a traditional way to work with the plant that was originally reserved for curanderos and medicine people. For a minimum of 10 days, away from your usual home environment, following a strict diet and without distraction, you work with Ayahuasca. Dieta tend to bring about incredible transformation. See the menu bar for out upcoming dieta dates in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon.
Not native to The Amazon but I work with this plant nonetheless, Blue Lotus is a powerhouse of heath benefits when used correctly.
I offer this plant because she came to me in visions and I believe that she holds many of the keys to unlock an essential part of humanities awakening process.
Ancient cultures used the Blue Lotus to enhance psychic abilities and bring on visions, though you need to consume very large amounts to reach extremely elevated states.
It’s been used as a traditional medicine for thousands of years as a natural aphrodisiac, pain reliever, sleep aid, anxiety reliever and for sexual impotence. While not dangerous, Blue Lotus is not suitable for everyone and should only be used under the guidance of an experienced practitioner.
Native to The Amazon rainforest, Bobinsana is usually served in the form of a tea.
This generous and loving plant offers physical healing as well as restoring a sense of calm, space to reflect and grounding. This is an incredible heart opener; it’s believed that the spirit of this Bobinsana can provide comfort to those experiencing loss, heartbreak or grief.
While not a psychoactive, many (including me) have experienced an opening to stronger connection with other realms, enhanced spiritual abilities and fortification of intuition while working with Bobinsana. Not commonly available outside of the jungle, this is your chance to experience sitting with this wonderful master plant teacher.
A Bobinsana Ceremony can be very supportive at any time in your life. This is a great way to get to know plant medicines and traditional Shamanic practices. If you’re considering coming to a dieta with us, this can be a good place to start because we offer Bobinsana on our 10 day retreats to help with the process.
Cacao is considered to be the medicine of the heart and can help you powerfully move through pain or blocks around processing emotions, trauma, grieving and also fo general wellbeing. .
Some people report feeling calmer, clearer and lighter, as well as de-stressed energised and in better health after working with Cacao in sacred ways. I only use raw, ceremonial grade Cacao, homegrown and wild from where we hold ceremonies in the Amazon.
A Cacao Ceremony is a great way to get to know plant medicines and acquaint yourself with traditional Shamanic practices. If you’re considering coming to a dieta with us, this can be a good place to start.
Equally, if you are looking to integrate post working with other plant medicines, Cacao can be really supportive in that.
Kambo is a non-psychedelic medicine that can have a deeply profound and healing effects when worked with properly. It comes from the secretion of the Amazonian Tree frog. It is important that the frog remains unharmed when we obtain the medicine.
Kambo has a strong energy and is not suitable for everyone. You can expect a purge to release physical and energetic nasties.
Kambo is applied in small doses to the skin. Over the centuries, the method has been passed down by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon to fortify, heal and revive the mind, body and spirit, and can be highly beneficial intreating a number of ailments. Kambo is known for helping with conditions including: addiction, Alzheimer’s disease, auto-immune issues, anxiety, cancer, chronic pain, depression, diabetes, infections, fertility issues and rheumatism.
I only use Kambo directly from a secretive tribe in Peru. For centuries they have worked closely with this sacred animal, their reciprocal relationship is beautiful and profound. They will never hurt or distress a frog and only obtain the medicine in a humane way; by only briefly rubbing the legs then letting them go. It’s taken years to build a relationship with these deeply spiritual and connected people, I am honoured to have their blessing to use both their medicine and traditional methods when working with Kambo. An additional percentage of what I earn I give back to helping sustain and protect the tribe also. When you work with me, you are contributing towards this also.
