Yes, I recommend this program

a heart touching experience

This is a deep introduction to the world of shamanism and plants. I reccommend it for many reasons, there is no barrer in between the medicine man and the patient, here you understand the importance of self-healing in a respectful, joyous environment.
The teachings come in many forms, verbally, practically and in a more subtle way. Working with locals has been fantastic.
I recognize the spiritual growth and the great transormation I undergo.
I spent 2 weeks in a forest retreat dieting with plants to understand their medicinal value and wisdom. Unique opportunity. Very thankful.
