About The Teacher

is a 39-year-old traditional medicine practitioner from the Czech Republic, Europe, who has been living among the kichwa indigenous people of Ecuador since 2008. Jan apprenticed within the lineages of indigenous Kichwa and Shipibo shamans during long periods of traditional dietas with plants. Among his favorite plant teachers are the Jungle Tobacco, Chiri & Uchu Sanango, Noya Rao, Piñon Colorado, Ayahuma, Bobinsana, Peyote and Wachuma. Jan is an experienced ceremonial leader with a practice of 10 years and built his own healing center, where he hosts Feather Crown Ayahuasca retreats and traditional dietas, co-working with indigenous elder Don Carlos Landazuri. During Feather Crown retreats, he will be translating and assisting an elder kichwa shaman Don Carlos. Jan will be supporting you in and out of your ceremonies and ensure the safety and order on this retreat. His experience as an integrational therapist will enrich the sharing sessions. On retreats which include Tobacco ceremonies or Sananga, Jan will be providing those medicines in a ritual setting.
