Josue and his family were the guides at my first Ayahuasca ceremony in Costa Rica. Like so many people that experience Ayahuasca for the first time, the experience was life transforming. Besides the infinite blessings I received from "Mother Ayahuasca", I felt enormous gratitude to the Cano family. Their guidance and support during the ceremony was a key factor in its effect- they really knew how to hold the energy and enable the very powerful experience we all experienced. After that ceremony, I knew that my relationship to Ayahuasca and plant medicines was going to continue. Soon after I was sharing my experience with someone, and they told me about a Colombian "Shaman" that was coming to Costa Rica and an opportunity to experience "the real thing". I was very excited and felt that the next step for me was to begin working with the shaman as he traveled often to Costa Rica where I live. The ceremony was very different from what I had experienced with the Cano family. I won't go into a lot of detail, but after several ceremonies with him, I began to have some issues with the way the shaman and his people were handling the ceremonies and realized that the Cano family were a purer conduit for a direct experience of the sacred plant energies. Since then I have participated in numerous ceremonies with the Cano's and each one has deepened my relationship and enormous respect for the master plants. I feel very fortunate to have them consistently guiding the ceremonies with unconditional love and enthusiasm. I highly recommend everyone to come to Costa Rica and participate in a ceremony or retreat with them.
