Don Rober Acho Jarama

Don Rober is a genuine Lamista banco ayahuasquero. He is a natural maestro (master, teacher) and native taught, whose knowledge has been passed down through generations of Amazon jungle healers. Don Rober possesses an extraordinary knowledge of the Amazon’s healing plants and how to use them safely and properly for the benefit of his patients.Don Rober is a classic Amazonian curandero of great skill and quiet power who manifests a charming, humorous and humble demeanor and conducts his work in deep concentration and without deception. His gift of intuitive plant knowledge and charismatic healing energy is deeply heart-warming. His consummate ceremonial skills and amazing icaros move the energy and guide our metaphysical and visionary journeys as few can, to realize deep healing and profound realization of who we are and where we are going in our lives.

The term ‘banco’ refers to curandero specializing in the Ayahuasca medicine who has mastered the fine art of Ayahuasca shamanism at the highest level. Don Rober is a true ‘banco’ among few living in this day and time. His father and grandfather were both renowned lamista bancos, indeed “maestros de maestros” in the most literal sense. Young Rober began sitting in their ceremonies at the age of 7 or 8, and declared his apprenticeship at age eleven.

During his apprenticeship he was guided in many ‘dietas’ with scores of healing and teacher plants to learn their medicine, their lessons, and their icaros. The plant dietas give strength, wisdom and knowledge needed to undertake the rigorous life of the vegetalista curandero (plant healer). At the age of eighteen, after a diligent apprenticeship of 7 years, Rober was deemed qualified to begin his lifelong service to the medicine and humanity as a dedicated vegetalista curandero and maestro ayahuasquero.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan
