The Healing Amazon River
 


Dear Friends
When you see for the first time the Amazon River and the exuberant jungle which paints magnificent colors in every
direction surrounding you, you can feel how a magical energy awakes many of your senses, ….which were just “ asleep”.

This intense Journey will take us to explore the biggest and most fabulous river of our Planet “The Amazon”, a place where diverse sensations of happiness, peace, mystery, and love are combined. In our exploration we will be in different sacred rivers, like the Marañon and the Ucayali among others. And as a fundamental and important complement we will be with Mystical Native Groups, and specially with Old Ancient Healers, who will share with us their long life secrets for doing healings and rituals, important and exclusive ceremonies which connects them to the Amazon Jungle and its spirits

This is really a unique adventure, a different way to learn from nature and the keepers of its secrets, The Jibaros, The Yaguas, The Boras, The Muruy, The Ocainas and many other native people will open the secrets of the Amazon jungle, a world full ceremonies, wild but sacred animals, and miraculous magical-medicinal plants. These native people have been hidden in the Amazon jungle for centuries, keeping the voices, teachings and healing techniques of their wise ancestors.
