About This Center

Ojo de Luna welcomes people from all over the world who want to live the transformative process of healing and open themselves to spiritual experiences with the support of medicinal plants of the jungle. This is performed under the care and guidance of a dedicated, experienced and responsible team who are trained in this therapy, set in a location where the Amazonian tradition of plant medicine is genuinely exercised. Our purpose is to provide the optimal conditions of isolation, concentration, guidance and protection to live the process and open to its full healing potential in contact with majestic nature. Our patients are received and taken care of in the family environment of the therapist who is native to the traditions of Amazonian plant medicines and comes from a lineage of healers. We are inspired to make this powerful medicine of the Amazon available to everyone, since on a global scale we are suffering physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually from an intoxicating industrial culture. It is for this reason that purging and purifying the body become so important as we reconnect with ourselves, nature and the divine spirit that moves through us all. In this way we can enjoy a healthy, full life and feel motivated to contribute our unique gift in building a sustainable society for the future.

"I have had the opportunity to travel a lot, but that place is unique. I was able to connect with nature. I solved issues in which I had years of formal psychotherapy working, changed my way of dealing with work and relationships". Francisca Vargas
