The Earth Medicines we will work with

Huachuma (San Pedro cactus)

Because it is a bit gentler than many of the other plant teachers, Huachuma has earned the nickname “The Grandfather” around the medicine community — Make no mistake though, San Pedro can produce as deep visions as any other entheogenic, Ayahuasca, Buffo Alvarius or Psilocybin mushrooms. However it is overall less intimidating, less jarring and more loving than many other plant teachers. — His main personality is two-fold: heart-opener...

Ayahuasca (Amazonian brew)

The Grandmother Ayahuasca is certainly to be respected as its strong spirit unfolds our minds and hearts to other realities and otherworldly experiences. It is a bright and convoluted teaching that will take you on a radiant journey. The teaching is also focused on the powers of the Intangible, it's residing spirits and the alliances we can make within those realms. The mission and personality of Ayahuasca is to educate and broaden our perception, to reform old limiting patterns, to ...

With practice it will also lead you to realise the mystical yet revealing link there is between the 'void' and it's purpose for our dayly-living. The experience of non-duality is counter-intuitively very practical as it allows us to live from the source, free from the hindrances of mundanity...

Kambo (Amazonian tree frog)

Kambocito, Kampu or Kambo has the propeties to reset your entire Immune system. It is very useful in our current times. It will also help you recode DNA. It works beautifully in preparation or as an adjuvent of other medicines. It's use is to be approached with respect, and trust in your Practitioner is paramount... We currently offer Kambo in almost all our retreats as it...

Rapéh — Sacred Tobacco snuff
