  • Description


    I am in general very open minded and I like to exchange culture. I dedicate myself mostly to the export and pronotion of widely used medicinal plants and trees from the Amazon basin. The traditional healing ceremonies that are practiced within Amazonian Shamanism and the philosophies behind it are one of my biggest interests. For my work I live mostly in the city of Iquitos, but I like to do hikes in the forest and I like the cultivation of plants when I have free time available. I also like going to good restaurants in the city and in the weekends I may go out for a drink with some friends.

    From the 22th of August until 4th of September I have an ayahuasca retreat/plant diet scheduled at our center about 3 hours from Iquitos city.

    I usually assist in the ceremonies there, and I am always the translator for the visitors, as I speak both English and Spanish, but due to a family situation I have to go back to my country for one month, and therefore I am looking for some volunteer that could replace me from the 29th of August until the end of the retreat. It is also possible to volunteer from the start of the retreat.

    The volunteer needs to speak both English and Spanish and would have to translate for the visitors and the shaman during the whole retreat, whenever it is necesary.

    In return the volunteer can stay at the center, participate in at least 3 ayahuasca ceremonies, and will have his/her breakfast, lunch and dinner during his/her stay.

    Our volunteer will have a private cabin at our center. Don´t expect too much luxury; we are surrounded by virginal forest and there won´t be electricity. Showers are taken at the nearby creek.

    The center is located in the heart of the Peruvian rainforest, about 3 hours from Iquitos city. We consider our location very suitable for relaxing and meditation where it is possible to learn more about the traditional uses of medicinal plants and forestlife in general.
