  •   This is my original shaman - by Aubrey Marcus

    I have drunk 6 times with Maestro Orlando Chujandama and hold him in the highest regard. Though we have spoken very few words due to the language barrier between us, he will always be a part of my spiritual family. He takes a very active role in his village and is a true healer in the greatest traditional sense. The ayahuasca he brews is intensely physically cleansing, and the accommodations are rustic and close to the jungle.
