A SHAMANIC JOURNEY TO THE HEART OF THE AMAZON JUNGLE TO TAKE AYAHUASCA… THE JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME
A UNIQUE, HEALING AND UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE IN THE COLOMBIAN AMAZON.
A journey to meet oneself…
Video trip to the jungle with the team Ayahuasca International:
A SHAMANIC INITIATION JOURNEY
We will physically travel to the jungle, but more importantly we will travel internally towards our own nucleus. We will meet Shamans, but more importantly each and every one of us will encounter their own inner master. We will travel deep into the Jungle, but truly what we will be accessing is our own savage nature.
IT IS A JOURNEY TO MEET THE ANCESTRAL WISDOM OF THE INDIGENOUS AMAZONIAN SHAMANS. TO ENCOUNTER AND INTERACT WITH ANCIENT AND POWERFUL PLANT MEDICINE, WITH THERAPEUTICAL INTENTION, PERSONAL GROWTH, WELL- BEING AND CONNECTION WITH NATURE. IT IS NEITHER A TRIP NOR A TOURISTIC TRIP, BUT AN ENRICHING EXPERIENCE.
LEARNING SHAMANIC SCIENCE… IN THE JUNGLE.
We are certainly living in extraordinary times, the opportunity to have direct access to these awakened living entities, Shamans, who are in intimate contact with the source of wisdom is indispensable; their “science” is in fact the combination of knowledge obtained in the jungle, the experiences and secrets of the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms… This wisdom they have accumulated and passed on, generation after generation, and throughout thousands of years, is now available for those in search of a meaningful, life changing and healing experience.
Sharing with them this age old tradition and being there as they facilitate this ceremony and administer the sacred medicine is truly an unforgettable experience.
Working and learning with the Shamans is possible thanks to our direct contact and link to indigenous people’s from Mocoa, South Colombia, the Putumayo region, part of what is also known as The “Lungs of the Planet”. .
FROM 11TH TO 22ND, EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR. Twelve days and eleven nights of healing and transformation. The participant may adapt the length of his or her trip to suit their needs and desires. In our experience, a minimum of 5 days is needed to make the most out of the experience and enjoy the various magical aspects and surroundings of the Colombian Amazon. Our team of facilitators, expert guides, and translators, will be in Mocoa a few days prior the beginning of the program to welcome the participants. Arrival in Bogota can be a few days before the start, which happens on the 11th of each month in our hostel in Mocoa. From the Salitre bus terminal in Bogota, there are Buses almost every hour leaving to the Putumayo; it is also possible to go directly to the hostal a few days before or take an Airplane from Bogota to Villa Garzon which is the nearest Airport.
We have been working with the Shamans for over ten years now and they have given us their blessing to transmit their ancient science and to conduct work of body purification, energy clearing, emotional unblocking and spiritual connection.
It is an unparalleled opportunity for one to freely access cultures that still preserve that ancestral wisdom – cultures that, unfortunately, could soon disappear.
IT IS A ONE WAY ONLY JOURNEY – WE NEVER RETURN IN THE SAME WAY AS WE LEFT. On our way there we carry suitcases full of hopes, fantasies, expectations and, above all, emotional baggage from our past.
On our return, with the jungle medicine in our bodies and a unique healing energy in each and every one of our cells, we experience our own personal transformation.
This experience is unique and unrepeated, it invites you to meditate on your health, your place in the world, your vital circumstances and on how you wish to see both your emotional, spiritual and indeed practical life improve.
Each person finds the moment and opportunity to surpass themselves when they effectively take the leap, not only when they become ready to take it. Once the choice is made, the process itself makes the preparation occur naturally.
In total it is a minimum of 5 nights in the Hostal Casa del Rio Mocoa in Colombia, within a natural Jungle environment, and surrounded by highly regarded, trustworthy Shamans and experienced healers, and with the musical support of the music- therapist and singer Darwin Grajales 0r other musicians.
The meeting point in Mocoa is the Hostel Casa del Rio, owned by the team members of Ayahuasca International, a place in the midst of the rainforest, which can be reached by a ten minute taxi ride Mocoa or 20 minutes away from Villa Garzon (where the airport is). The hostel has several rooms with en suite bathroom housing four people. There would be an added fee for a double room. The hostel is next to the Rumiyaco river, with a smaller river flowing through the property. The rooms, located in between trees, are accessed over a wooden bridge. In the almost two hectares of jungle land around the hostel there are plenty of spaces to rest, cook ayahuasca, gather to sing, hammocks, a tennis court and a maloca where the shamanic ceremonies are held. There is WiFi, telephone, computer, laundry room and a 24 hour taxi service.
DURING THE DAYS BETWEEN THE 11TH AND THE 22ND OF EACH MONTH WHEN WE ORGANISE THE GROUP JOURNEYS, THE HOSTEL IS COMPLETELY BOOKED FOR SAID GROUP. THE HOSTEL IS UNAVAILABLE IF YOU ARE NOT PART OF THE GROUP, BUT YOU CAN ARRIVE A FEW DAYS BEFORE AND STAY A FEW DAYS AFTER THE GROUP IS THERE.
IF YOU WANT TO SEE RECORDINGS AND/OR PICTURES OF OUR LAST JOURNEY AND ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE, WE CAN SEND YOU PICTURES, VIDEOS AND TESTIMONIALS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALREADY PARTICIPATED.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Who is this journey for?
For people who, beyond anything, want to find and discover the best parts of themselves. It is for those who value deep inner evolution work more then the adventure or the distraction offered by visiting beautiful sites. We distinguish between social or touristic recreational trips, to what for us is an archaeological journey, in search of the depths of our origins, both from a spiritual and a human perspective.
Why Colombia and Mocoa?
Because we have been there more than 30 times. We are in close contact with Shamans from several ethnic backgrounds. Because the Shamans and the sites of the Colombian Jungle have not yet been exploited by this new breed of Shamanic tourism. Because there you can find the most ancient Ayahuasca plants of the Amazon Jungle. Because it was in Colombia where we learned about the secrets of the work with Ayahuasca. Because we have purchased land and have a house in the jungle.
Mocoa, capital city of Putumayo, is an area in southern Colombia, on the border with Ecuador; it is called the “Lung of Humanity” due to its geographical shape, resembling that of a lung, and also because it has over 90% virgin jungle.
Why go to the jungle?
Because to leave this world without having entered the Jungle is like not having experienced and seen the inside of the great temple of Mother Earth. From the inside. The jungle is the place where the most sensitive natural antennas, which decode divine intelligences, are born. It is the great manufacturing plant for body and soul medicine.
It is the ideal surroundings to have a “natural” experience in order to connect with the divine.
Is it dangerous to go there?
It is no more dangerous than any other place in the world, in the sense of the risks that any trip entails. We have never had any issues and we never travel to places we are not familiar with. We have always been accompanied by Shamans and their families, or trusted local guides with a deep knowledge and understanding of the land and culture.
How many days are needed for the experience?
Although the journeys are constructed and planned to last 12 days and 11 nights, you should be in the Jungle for a minimum of five nights, the participant is also invited to stay throughout the two months of Ayahuasca International’s work in the region.

What is the purpose of the journey?
Each participant will have their own, but as organizers we hold the intention of coming closer to and integrating with the source of the most powerful medicine on earth.
- Learn from the wisdom that still remains from Shamans with indigenous roots.

- Raising awareness to the ecological and medicinal value of supporting the Jungle and the Shamanic culture.
- Meeting like minded people, traveling the same path.
- To return renewed, full of life energy, ready to enjoy what we are and what we have without unnecessary interferences and obstacles.
THE DISTINCTIVE ASPECT OF THIS JOURNEY IS ITS THERAPEUTICAL DIMENSION, THIS BEING THE REASON WHY WE ARE IN DIRECT AND CLOSE CONTACT WITH EACH PARTICIPANT BEFORE THE JOURNEY AND FOR A LONG TIME AFTER IT ENDS. FROM THE MOMENT A PERSON DECIDES TO UNDERTAKE IT, SPACES OPEN FOR WORK AND MANY TYPES OF PROJECTIONS BEING TO MANIFEST (FOR EXAMPLE: EXPECTATIONS, FRUSTRATIONS, DEMANDS, THE NEED TO KNOW AND TO PLAN EVERYTHING) WHICH HOLD THE KEYS FOR PERSONAL GROWTH.
WE KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE THAT THOSE WHO ARE NOT OPEN TO DEAL WITH THEIR PROJECTIONS WILL HAVE TROUBLE EVOLVING. FOR THIS REASON THIS JOURNEY TO THE JUNGLE ACTUALLY BECOMES AN INNER JOURNEY.
