Ten Week Advanced Initiation – $6450

About us


The Ten Week Advanced Initiation Course is similar to the Six Week Course, but goes much deeper.  It provides students with the greatest opportunity to learn the healing tradition of curanderismo.  Students spend 65 days in the junge with the Shipibo curandero don Enrique and our team of assistant healers at the Ayahuasca Foundation’s School for Plant Medicine, Inkan Kena.  Apart from attending up to 32 ayahuasca ceremonies, it is truly an amazing experience to diet with the plants and receive teachings from genuine authentic shipibo curanderos as well as from long time students of the tradition, who are great examples of what new students are striving to achieve. The course provides a very unique opportunity to diet with one of the most powerful plants in the Amazon Rainforest.  This luminescent tree is vary rare, and we are lucky to have two of them near the school, which was built in its location because of its proximity to these trees.

Learn More about the Ten Week Advanced Initiation Course

More than just an extended version of the Initiation Course, students in the Advanced Course will have a much more complete teaching, with the chance to lead at least two ceremonies each on their own, as well as perform much more of the healing treatments than provided in the six week course.  The Advanced Initiation Course is the equivalent of what would normally take a year or more of study in the jungle.  This is definitely not a vacation.  It is an intense immersion into the world of curanderismo and the plant spirit healing traditions of the Shipibo.  It is intended for people who have had experience with ayahuasca or shamanic practices and want to go much deeper in the work.  It is for people who truly feel called to be curanderos.
