Through these 5 days we want to support participants in developing their skill set as natural healers, with a focus on understanding the Amazonian cosmovision and healing practices. This includes learning how healers interpret the universe and the different levels in a human body, and how we can heal with elements and medicine in our surroundings.

Workshops include:

  • Amazonian Cosmovision: how does the Amazonian healer interpret the universe?
  • Amazonian Healing: the evolution of Amazonian healing & medicine across time
  • Amazonian Ceremonies: using elements (water, fire, wind, etc.) to heal
  • Wachiperi Medicine: Eshuwa chants for healing
  • Machiguenga Medicine: plants for healing
  • Group healing sessions
