Spirituality of the Amazon Shamanic Tradition…with a local jungle shaman.
A shaman’s mysterious healing practices are a blend of medicine and spirit. The rainforest shamans are experts on the healing properties of the jungle’s rich plant medicines.
These shamans have an intimate relationship with the healing spirits of nature and of the plants, which they summon on behalf of the patient during the healing. (quote from Connie Grauds, RPh, MNPA, President of the Association of Natural Medicine Pharmacists)
Experience the indigenous healing of the Amazon shamanic traditions with local shaman don Antonio. Participate in the ancient healing rituals of the limpia herbal water ritual, the healing songs of the shaman during the energia positiva ritual, and the sacred copal ritual.
