About ceremonies and it`s rules
What are traditional Amazonian ceremonies?
It`s a really wide question because there are lots of different traditions in Amazonian region especially if we consider different part of Amazonia as Peruvian, Brazilian and other parts.
We work with Shamans from Loreto region of Peru. Its the center of Amazonian, Peruvian shamanism. First of all the tradition means that the person who leeds the ceremony is Curandero and Shaman and gained all the experience by passing the long way of dieting with sacred master-plants in Peruvian jungles for many years. Only by this process the person can become a healer and have the right and honour of guiding ceremonies.
Secondly the tradition means that you will have to follow some rules during ceremonies that are set for your safety, deep personal connection with the spirit of medicine and healing process during ceremonies. These rules include keeping silent except expressing emotions, deep respect to other participants, keeping your place during the whole ceremony except toilet, prohibition for singing and dancing, prohibition of interacting the experience of other participants. All ceremonies are passing only during the night time with no using lights or self-phones.
And finally the tradition means that a shaman never sing ballads or popular songs that have no connection to the healing ceremonies and in fact are disrespect to the spirit of the medicine itself. During ceremony process shaman uses special songs names "Icaro" that he learned directly from spirits during his/her dieting process with master-plants. Icaros and Chacapa (the traditional instrument made from leafs) are tools of a shaman for healing and protection people during a ceremony process.

All these rules are the result of thousands years experience and dedicated on your safety, personal healing and transformation.

Why is it so important to follow rules during ceremonies?
You have to understand that all these rules are the result of thousands years practical experience of shamans who worked with Ayahuasca and was aimed on its healing properties. All these rules were set to make your experience as safe and beneficial as possible.
Unfortunately we know lots of examples when people drink the medicine in inappropriate environment with people who are not shamans but only "ayahuasca dealers" in the way of breaking all traditional rules and call it "new age shamanism". To our deep regret we receive lots of emails from people who participated in these kind of cessions and now try to find the way out from their curent mental state.
Pls be aware of the shaman and the ceremony you are going to participate in and always visit retreats with the true native shamans to guide you.
What medicine do you use during your retreats?
We are strictly concentrate on the quality of a medicine we use. On our retreats you can be sure that all our medicine comes directly from Peruvian selva (jungles) and prepared under the control of our shamans. We never work with the medicine we didn't make by ourselves. It allows us to be sure that we can provide ceremonies in its medicinal way and work with the medicine made strictly to the traditional recipe
Will I have the opportunity to talk with the Shaman?
We never separate the shaman from our group. The personal connection is one of our rules for the retreat. So if you speak Spanish you can freely talke with the shaman during his free time our if you don't speak Spanish we will be a mediator between you and the shaman.
