Original Instructions Skills Immersion Week in the Amazon of Peru

About us

We are pleased to offer this Original Instructions skills immersion in the Peruvian Amazon basin. During our time together we will explore the plants and fauna of the Peruvian Amazon Basin in the Province of Loreto, city of Iquitos. You will come away from this immersion having had an educational experience with Curandero Don Juan Paima in the beautiful, powerful and intensely diverse ecosystem that is the Amazon.  You will sit among the plants whose spirits live,breathe, and give life and healing to people throughout the world. 

We will have various opportunities to experience traditional Ayahuasca ceremonies as well as see the vine in her natural state and prepare medicine with her in the traditional way.

Our Original Instructions teachers will provide you with daily hands-on trainings in the fields of botany, traditional shamanic herbalism, medicine making and more. Each day you will learn from many plants and will build a relationship with one each day by preparing it as medicine, drinking its infusion, tasting its fruits, and learning its song. 

You will have personal time to speak with Curandero Don Juan about concerns that may be ailing you physically, spiritually or mentally. You will learn from him and participate as being either a witness or patient of his many shamanic healing offerings.
