Tobacco and Tree Dieta
Shamanic Initiation in the Tradition of the Amazon Jungle
Offering diets with mapacho and other master plants such as chiric sanango, camalonga, ayahouma and more.. guided by experienced plant medicine practitioner Merav Artzi.
Merav combines traditional plant medicine training with contemporary western modalities.
The plant dieta is a chance to learn from one of the Master Plant teachers. “Dieting” is a traditional process one undertakes to learn and heal deeply from a plant. The dieta is done in isolation which gives the participant a chance to deeply be with herself, to see and understand the mind, and to allow the plant to maximize its effects.
Guests will arrive during the day, get settled in, have a diagnostic to see which plant would be of most benefit, and then begin the ceremony and dieting process that night. Food is kept to a minimum to allow the plant to deeply penetrate. It is said that when the body is weak, the spirit is high. Guests will drink a juice or smoothie or eat a light soup twice a day just in order to maintain physical force so that they are able to undertake the plant diet, which can be strong and profound.
The dietas will be run by myself and my colleague Jason, a very experienced tabaquera. Combined we have worked with and guided over a thousand people in ceremonies working with various plants. It is a great opportunity to work with both a very experienced male and female guide.
Guests have the option to stay for a dieta of one-week working with one plant, a dieta of two-weeks to go even deeper working with one plant, or two one-week dietas with two different plants. Includes one to two days rest in between and/or at the end of the diet.
The diets will take place in Urubamba, Peru. This is in the Sacred Valley of Peru, where the lowland Amazonian jungle comes up and turns into the high Andean mountain range. Price is all-inclusive of the dieta, including all work, medicine, food, accommodation, and treatments. (Exact location and accommodation may vary depending on the number of dieters)
Dieta cost: 1 week: $800 plus 5% credit card charge
