Shamanic stay

Shaman tour (5 days / 4 nights )

 

A Shaman is considered to be a doctor because he is capable of treating certain diseases, spells and evils of the forest. Like all doctors shamans are specialised. Some treat people with "Ayahuasca" (forest liana vine). They are called "Ayahuasquerros". Those who treat people with "Toé" (leaves from the Toé trees) are called "Toeteros". It isn't easy to become a shaman because you need to be a man with a powerful spirit and be able to endure strict diets while you are an apprentice. The first test to become a shaman is spending one month alone in the forest, feeding on fruits and roots produced by mother nature. Then the apprentice goes home and is subjected to a very strict diet. (No salt, no hot dishes, no fish, no garlic and no alcoholic drinks for fifteen days). After completing this diet he will go back into the forest for three months, then for six months and finally for one year. During this entire period the apprentice lives a life with a restrictive diet and sexual abstinence. The next test he must pass is sitting on a chair to check that he doesn't loose his balance. If he falls then he didn't carry out correctly his apprenticeship and cannot become a shaman. If he succeeds then he will receive the title of doctor and wear a white garment. He will then be able to treat many diseases such as depression, anxiety, epilepsy, arthritis and certain cancers. The patient is monitored for one, two or three weeks and is put on a strict diet.

This shaman tour can only be done during a minimum stay of 5 days. You will be able to learn about everything concerning natural medicine and be able to experience the past, present and future with your visions and thereby calm or heal some of your problems. For people with certain diseases or serious health problems like obesity, epilepsy, arthritis, kidney, liver or stomach problems, etc. plan on a minimum stay of 10 days to follow the treatment and diet written down and recommended by the shaman.
