Rainforest Plant Medicine Councils: An Experience with Ancient Amazonian Medicine for Self, Community & Planetary Renewal

About This Event

During the 3 scheduled Rainforest Medicine councils:

Jan. 6 - 16; Jan. 20 - 30; and Jan. 31 - Feb. 5, 2016

the Intentions are:

To Experience the prehistoric origins and vital importance of Plant Medicine Traditions from the Upper Amazon as taught and lived by the Secoya elders for centuries. 

To provide an opportunity for renewal of body mind and spirit through rainforest plant medicine traditions that act as a catalyst for auspicious transformation and tangible human progress. 

To make known the holistic indigenous ceremonial science of "God's Multicolored People" (translation of "Secoya"), under the tutelage of skilled Secoya wisdom keepers, the traditional elders, accomplished "torch bearers," and adepts of this sacred spiritual culture.

To experience tropical biodiversity in a remote rainforest wilderness and beach setting. Meet a pristine Pacific Ocean and the mighty rainforest ecosystems of the Osa Peninsula, where birds, plants and wildlife abound, sing and play.

To facilitate right livelihood by creating work opportunities for people in remote ecologically sensitive regions and raise funds for rainforest conservation and cultural heritage projects.

Tuition proceeds & sales of all traditional Secoya arts & crafs and ceremonial atire, as well as Pablo Amaringo visionary artreplicas, available at the event, will be channeled to rainforest projects overseen by the CCBD ((contact info blocked)), supporting traditional elder masters in the Amazon and a Marine Turtle Conservation Project on the Osa.
