About The Teacher

As I was less than 10 years old, the pounding questions about existence and its nature spoke to me through unusual perceptions from beyond of my mind-space, hinting me to suspect, that there’s something greater happening than what I was taught. Also, for a while, reoccurring dreams with glimpses of something vast and unspeakable left me in humble shock, that about 10 years later took form of studies and exploration of non-conventional blending of Amazonian and Oriental ways.
After I was introduced to the world or entheogens and works of A.Hoffman, T.McKenna, C.Castaneda, S.Grof, I travelled to Peru where I met Ayahuasca and other master plants in their original habitat.
After years of entheogen studies I dedicate most of my time to directing human and master plants’ potential into an organic awakening experience.

Following my curiosity and long time interest about entheogens and traveling to South America, I have been fortunate for being able to study and work with Ayahuasca, mostly under guidance of ayahausqueros Diego Palma and Don Bechin Vargas. For years I have been assisting work of plant guides and accompanying inner work of travellers from around the world, adventuring in healing and transforming themselves in a non-conventional way. My personal process mostly consisted of studying these ancestral medicines directly, in practice, during the ceremonies, retreats and dietas.

While serving as a facilitator in Sacred Valley and Amazon, I witnessed people taking home powerful insights, inspired by possibilities of change, revelations and newly acquired wisdom or “just” a clear message that one needs to go back home and start hugging their closest ones. Also it was not uncommon for some to take home questions like – “What now?”, “How do I live with this?” or “Why some things became more difficult?”. Well, unfortunately, the degree of frustration sometimes may increase, as the process with plants creates new movement and bring new variables into play.

      Amazing musician - equally talented facilitator

    Edmunds is an extremely talented musician, I have attended a number of events where he played music composed by others and his own compositions. His performances were all equally magnificent. His working knowledge of medicine is extensive and deep, he has obviously spent much time learning the wisdom of the plants he uses in his ceremonies. I attended a ceremony in his own home in Piseq a few months ago and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. In conjunction with his colleague Eduardo, they facilitated the group and the ceremony in a wonderfully 'authentic' and real way. Edmunds is European and being from Europe myself (Ireland), I appreciated the bridge that Edmunds was able to provide between the 'cultural void' that can be difficult for people new to medicine and ceremony. I would highly recommend Edmunds and hope very much that you have the opportunity to experience his wise guidance and masterful ceremony leadership.
