Camp for indigenous medicine

Dear sisters and brothers,

We are asking you for your support of our new camp in the Amazon.
This camp will be there to study the ancient healing traditions of the Shipibo tribe.
It will be also a retreat center for people that need long-term healing treatments.
A place, where the Shipibo heritage can be preserved!

Through an intensive path of learning the indigenous healing traditions we have gathered from different european countries and today call ourselves a family. Mukanranko (Roger Bardales) is our beloved teacher, who shares his plant wisdom with us and is a source of power for us. He was born and raised in the Amazon and belongs to the Shipibo Conibo tribe. They are very well known for their deep roots in the healing power of the plants. Roger was trained as a shaman from childhood on and spent almost 20 years in the jungle. With him, we spend each year several months in Peru and dedicate ourselves entirely to the healing work. We are deeply grateful to receive the healing and to share the messages of the medicine with many people.

Here we want to share about the background of this fundraising and invite you to take a moment and connect to our vision which we want to realize...

Our new camp! 
Thanks also to the donations which were already collected, we managed to move out of our old camp in Pucallpa. The new place is located in Yarina Cocha.  We enjoy the peaceful space here but the civilisation is still following us...
In order to deepen our connection with the plant spirits and to truly learn the indigenous healing traditions, we furthermore need a place which is in the jungle, surrounded only by nature, clear air and silence. There we can grow a healing space for us, as well as for visitors, and bring the ancient healing powers from the Shipibos into the world. 
We already have new contacts of the locals who know places with primary forests to buy. 

What is our greater vision?
We modern people have mostly lost the connection to nature and have forgotten the language of life. There are only a few tribes left on earth, who know those secrets and even fewer are willing to share their knowledge with Western people.

It is a laborious remembering of an actually very simple way of living, in which everything unnecessary is dropped in order to give the divine, the mystery of life its space again. The reconnection to nature helps to fertilize the leached soils of our lives and to sow new seeds of healing and love. Plants teach us to reconnect as mankind like a network of roots.

The healing traditions of the indigenous tribes also help us to connect with our native plant medicine. This forgotten knowledge can be reactivated.

Thus, it’s our even greater vision to create places of healing in different places of the world.  This camp shall be a first step on our journey to express our appreciation and gratitude for all the experiences, which we are allowed to make with indigenous medicine.

For what exactly are the donations used?
In order to use our new camo as a medical camp, we will soo  build a new ceremonial temple ("Maloca") and more wooden huts ("Tambos") for the students and visitors. 

Furthermore we already have new contacts to the locals who told us about areas with real primary forest to buy. 

We thank you for every support you can give in order to create this new healing space.

IRAKE! (Thank you in Shipibo-Conibo language)
