Pourquoi travailler avec nous

We are a passionate and seasoned tribe. We offer healing retreats and Practitioner Training for aspiring facilitators of Ancestral Medicines. Our retreats are specifically crafted for people seeking healing and with an interest in discovering the deeper aspects of their true selves. Our mission is to share, help disseminate and preserve the collective wisdom found in the teachings and practices of traditional healers of Central and South America. We dedicate our spiritual and human capital to support healing and the evolution of consciousness.

Healing and Empowerment

Our focus is the empowerment of others through the use of ancestral medicines and their unmatched capacity to help us heal & reconnect. We insist in sharing these medicines in the way of the elders. We owe everything to the wisdom holders of this world, the curanderos, vegetalistos and shamans of many traditions. And we are inspired and driven in a similar manner by their ways of reciprocity with nature.

Nous relions les mondes

Nous sommes dans la position unique d’offrir des possibilités de changements profonds et durables grâce à ces medecines car nous sommes des occidentaux qui partageons avec vous une culture, une langue et un état d’esprit. Des décennies de travail personnel avec les médecines ancestrales ont également fait de nous des initiés et nous ont permis de créer un moyen pour l’esprit occidental de naviguer et de dialoguer avec les merveilles et les énergies de guérison de la médecine ancestrale.

Nos retraites

The Indigenous Way

Our intention is to share the ancestral ways of healing where preparation, diet and intentional mindset are paramount to enter pure states of awareness and to heal physical, mental and spiritual ailments. Once you’re booked on one of our retreats an information pack is sent to you to that effect. We also always present a practical understanding of the sacred teachings of these medicines, and how to work individually with each one of them.

Tailor-made

We carefully craft and combine master plants like San Pedro and Ayahuasca with Kambo and Bufo to enhance your journey.

All medicines offered on a retreat are of course optional and upon arrival, we can help you customise your own retreat, with at times the possibility to substitute some medicines for others. The choice is yours and is skilfully guided by our expert facilitators to support your own personal experience.

Glorious & Unique Venues

We select very carefully our retreat centers and venues to offer the best combination of modern comfort in idyllic settings, steeped in abundant nature; far from the madding crowd, and close to an International Airport.

Simple Fees

Your guide on the journey, Frédéric Cherri  

By nature, I’m not very fond of labels or titles however, if I had to describe my path I would say that I’m mostly a practitioner of the shamanic arts, a therapist of 30yrs clinical practice and tutoring in the field of cranial osteopathy, specialised in trauma, immune disorders and perinatal issues. I’ve also trained extensively for the last 25 yrs in the shamanic arts and dedicated a lot of my time to live and study with indigenous communities in many parts of the world.

I’m finally an entrepreneur, a retreat leader, a program teacher, a ceremonialist, a shamanic practitioner, an entheogen integration specialist and a personal coach. Years of study and practice on the path of workshop facilitation, field research and clinical & therapeutic work have led me to believe we can heal anything.

I’m also aware of being a bit of an ‘oddball’ in the realm of ancestral medicines as I’ve trained (and keep training) in a variety of ancestral medicines and with a variety of different traditions. A medicine man or woman usually is a one-medicine specialist, and trains in one sole tradition. I have answered the specific calls from some of these remarkable medicines and travelled wide and far to different jungles and mountains to work and study with varied first-people communities of this planet.

I believe there is a need for people like me to help bridge, protect and disseminate to a western audience the extraordinary wisdom of the first nations who share these medicines. Shamanic work and one of it’s mysterious and exciting aspects, the realm of plant or earth medicine, brings many answers to the unresolved issues of modern medicine or psychology. I have dedicated my life to supporting others’ journey, growth and transformation and am delighted to answer any questions via Zoom or Whatsapp chat. Schedule a free call here.
