The Space

We'll stay in a stunning A-frame cabin located on the southern shore of spectacular lake Atitlán, within walking distance to the town and hill of Cerro de Oro (hill of gold).

The space is large, open, cozy and warm. There are 2 full bathrooms, a den,juice/tea bar and apothecary, large living room with a central fireplace and sound system, a fully stocked kitchen and dining area,playroom, ping pong table and sleeping areas with balconies in the interior of the house.

On the outside there is a large lawn with lake access as well as herbal, medicinal, food and flower gardens. The terraced, lake-side garden includes a picnic table, hammocks, sunning chairs and a rowboat to enjoy the lake.


Ceremony will begin in the morning each day giving you ample time each afternoon and evening to enjoy everything the space has to offer.

What is Kambo

and what is it used for?

“Kambo",  also called “Sapo”, is the skin secretion of the giant waxy monkey tree frog (phyllomedusa bicolor) found in the lower basin of the Amazon. For thousands of years tribes have worked with it to cleanse and invigorate mind, body, and spirit. Kambo originally is estimated to have been used by as many as 53 tribes, and in present day is now also administered around the world by practitioners for various purposes.

In the Amazon Kambo is used to dispel ‘Panema’, bad luck, increase "hunting magic", and for attracting a partner.

For the modern person Kambo may help support the clearing of dispirited energies that come from misalignments in thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. Kambo may help bring back a vitality and clarity that people were not even aware they were without. This can often be liberating, allowing one to be more in their power and acceptance of life.

In the Amazon Kambo is also used by tribes as a remedy for snake bites, malaria, fevers, infections, fertility problems, and many epidemic illnesses.


In the modern world two decades of scientific research has produced several studies on the bio-active peptides in Kambo, showing the effects they have on numerous illnesses like Cancer, HIV, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, Chronic Fatigue, Autoimmune, Diabetes, Arthritis, Chronic Pain, and Depression.   


More information about Kambo, contraindications and what to expect will be shared before your screening call.

HEALING SPIRIT

Kambo is currently being studied for over 30 of its bioactive peptides which, among other things, have been shown to be useful in modulating the immune system and delivering an analgesic effect more powerful than morphine.

CLEANSE & DETOX

Kambo is known for cleansing the liver, gallbladder, and lymphatic system of toxins and and to be effective against viral, yeast and bacterial overgrowths.

THE WARRIOR FROG

Our Kambo experiences have provided us with a “warrior energy” -- in other words, an increased ability to relax and focus in the face of stress, that lasts for several weeks following treatment.



EXPERIENCED FACILITATORS

Our practitioners have extensive training and experience holding space and working with Kambo, plant medicine and other shamanic modalities.

WELCOME TO KAMBO


INOCULATION ORIENTATION


LET GO OF WHAT DOESN'T SERVE

Kambo is NOT A JOKE. It is a powerful spirit best approached with great respect. Kambo is regarded as an “ordeal medicine” and with good reason. We want to be perfectly clear that the experience, while lasting only 20-40 minutes, is quite intense, and not for anyone simply looking for another experiential notch on the belt, so to speak.

As one works with Kambo, they often find that surrendering to the process allows them to release significant energetic, emotional and mental blockages.  Sometimes, as one learns to surrender to the process and Kambo, the once uncomfortable process can become surprisingly pleasant.
