Throughout the 8 days, we will embark on a journey with various ancient medicines from South America, revered for centuries for their healing properties and consciousness-expanding effects. Breathwork, stemming from the Vedics thousands of years ago, stands as a pivotal component. We will also encounter Tabacco, known as Rape, the transformative Temzcal Sweat Lodge, Kambo, rejuvenating juice fasting, and a profound Mycelium Ceremony. Each medicine serves a distinct purpose, aiding us in shedding layers to draw nearer to our essence.

I am proud to introduce my brother Antonio, with whom I have the privilege of working for the very first time. With a profound understanding of the plant kingdom and an insatiable thirst for knowledge, Antonio's expertise in botany is remarkable.

 

His pursuit of learning has encouraged himself to immerse in the study of plants, expanding his skills and becoming

a master in the field.

During a transformative journey, Antonio crossed paths with Kambo, forging a sacred bond with the frog and embarking on a new chapter in his life. Since then, he has dedicated himself to traveling the world, striving to make the power of medicine accessible to people of all cultures and his unwavering commitment to spreading awareness about the healing properties of plants knows no boundaries.
