About This Center

‘Tzumi Muraya’ is an ancestral name, written in the dialect of the Cocama indians of the Amazon rainforest and represent the curanderos/shamans who had reached a certain level of knowledge.

`Tzumi Muraya´ can be translated best as ´Soul of the Grandfather Medicineman´.

It is a private healing center where alternative medicine is practiced and promoted.

We focus mainly on the traditional use of medicinal plants and trees found in the Peruvian Amazon and through the gatherings with visitors and the shamans that we work with we hope to keep the ancestral traditions alive.

Our private center is located in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, about 2,5 hours from Iquitos City where most of our traditional plant diet and healing ceremonies are scheduled.

Surrounded by virginal forest we consider our location energetically very suitable and powerful for practicing traditional medicine.

Several treatments, plant diets and healing ceremonies are offered in our malocca (traditional ceremony house) which are guided by kind and knowledgeable curanderos/ shamans that we succesfully worked with during several years.
