Amazon Sacred Medicine

About us

Amazon Sacred Medicine is a healing practice that works in all dimensions of the being: physical, emotional and spiritual. We offer authentic Amazonian traditional medicine healing practices as well as Transpersonal psychology techniques. Our intention is to create a safe and professional container where this healing can be manifested. We have the necessary skills and professional training to offer this work in a safe and successful way.

We are a small healing practice owned and run by the shamans and their families. We are based mainly in the Sacred Valley, in Peru. We are presently offering single night ceremonies and residential retreats. We also travel to different countries offering our work. The dynamic team includes a maestro palero and ayahuasquero from Iquitos, Peru and two professionally trained psychotherapists.

Our intention is for every person participating in our programs to experience an authentic healing experience. Such an experience has the potential of changing lives. This not only brings about positive change in one’s own lives, but also in the lives of many others around one. These experiences have implications on many levels of being, impacting on the way one connects with oneself and in the way one relates to the universe.

The name Amazon Sacred Medicine aptly defines our practice: we offer traditional Amazonian ayahuasca ceremonies within the Achuar and Mestizo lineages. In addition, we offer individual healing sessions within the boundaries of Amazonian Traditional medicine for many physical and psycho-spiritual ailments. These healing sessions include methods of diagnosis, treatment and the use of medicinal plants. In addition we offer weekly integration groups for participants of our ceremonies as well as online post-ceremony psychotherapeutic support.

We work integratively with transpersonal psychology in order to make Amazonian medicine available and translatable to the Westerner participant. We strive to equip every participant with the tools to be able to relate to his or her experience and by means of these tools integrate these experiences into a meaningful part of his/her life.

We believe that Amazonian traditional medicine can be an effective solution to many of the ailments of modern times and that these rituals need to be available to people looking for effective healing, change and transformation. The Mission of Amazon Sacred Medicine is threefold

– To preserve and promote the sacred rituals of Amazonian traditional medicine with integrity and respect for the traditions.

– To create a safe, supportive and ethical space, where our participants can benefit from authentic healing experiences.

– To inspire our participants for the reconnection to our highest Self, awakening the Divine spark within us all.

We look forward to hearing from you!

"I’ve been working with Carlos and Elizma for the last 5 years and there are no words that can accurately describe the amazing work that they are doing. Everything from the information, preparation, to the ceremonies, integration and support. Everything that you need for a safe and enriching experience is provided."
