About The Teacher

is a 37-year-old traditional medicine practitioner from 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 dieting with sacred teacher plants including jungle tobacco, bobinsana, ayahuma, noya rao, san pedro and peyote. The medicine path is Jan's life mission and he has the experience of 8 years leading ceremonies on different continents. Jan leads rituals with knowledge, humility, and respect for the plants, resulting in healing benefit for all participants. During ceremonies led by Jan all participants are supervised, guided and spiritually protected. Any detected negative energies are treated and cleansed. In Jan's ceremonies, participants enjoy individual cleansing sessions, where he sings icaros and uses the traditional leaf fan "surupanga".
