THE AMAZON

 

With 5 days in the forest, you will have plenty of time. Learn about the plants and trees. Go hunt or fish with the community. Sleep and wake up to the sounds of the jungle.

This is your time to restart, reconnect, revise. Travel outward and inward to discover the new you. Understand the importance of the forest - the lungs of the planet.

We are here to learn from the Mother Nature. And there is no better place on the planet to understand the complexity and richness of the fauna & flora.

YANAWANA PEOPLE

The program is filled with activities around the local culture: traditions, celebrations, ceremonies, art and food.

Meet the 91-old grandfather João, Tiima Shãwahu, the eldest "pajé" (shaman) of the whole Yanawana tribe. After finishing his Muka Samakai, the highest spiritual diet of his tradition, he dedicated his life to study an amazon jungle to cure and treat illnesses. His current mission is to promote the ancestral knowledge and the use of his language between the young Yanawanas.

His grandson Txana Pexa will be our host whom we help in building his new side village.

THE MEDICINES

In the jungle, everything can be a cure (or a poison). The Indigenous people of the Amazon have an extended knowledge about the nature cures and remedies.

This is your opportunity to participate in traditional ceremonies: ayahuasca, kambo, a herbal or a mud bath. Meanwhile, we will eat the organic foods of the Amazon.

BRASILIA

The capital of Brazil and the cultural hotspot in the middle of the country. Designed and built in the 1960s, the city features wide and open spaces, natural parks and a big lake. It is full of architectural landmarks and innovations. It is also a political melting pot, especially around the Indigenous people's rights. A must-visit on the way to the Amazon.
