ECO ESOTERICISM 4D/3N: "ECOLOGICAL NATURE RESERVE"

Ecoamazonia Lodge also offers -to those more inquisitive travellers and guests- certain exclusive locations and the "mystery hall" where sessions take place in which you –the inquisitive traveller- are going to undergo and achieve great experiences –all in the very heart of the forest- where, with the assistance of native Shamans and the "Ayahuasca" plant you shall access into a higher world with great spiritual power, within a different and unknown dimension.

The Ayahuasca plant (a South American vine, the scientific name of which is Banisteriopsis caapi, of the Family Malpighiaceae) is completely healthful, and is a powerful physical and mental "sensitizer". During a session one is able to review in depth –or at a "multidimensional" perspective- one's health, life, work, plans and future etc. The person is also able to "work" –or "link up"- directly with the earth mother "pachamama", the mother of the water, the mother of the forest, the mother of the air. The Master Teacher Shamans are among the most qualified and enlightened in the Amazonian forest. These extraordinary people are healers and counsellors who can help one solve their problems in life, cure alcoholism, drugs and other addictions, providing advice and support of every kind, effectively "absorbing" one's ills and pains and carefully as well as understandingly guiding the person through every step of the experience. All this within the most appropriate setting and surrounding in the Amazonian forest.

After breakfast, we shall navigate down the Madre de Dios River for approximately 2 hours. Along the banks, we catch sights of a variety of flora and fauna, as well as witness the activities of miners panning for gold. At the end of our 2 hour trip, we will pay a visit to the closest of the native indigenous communities, located at the site known as Palma Real. These folks belong to the Huarayo ethnic group who, albeit having been exposed to and assimilated some aspects of western "civilization", have nonetheless succeeded in preserving a great degree of their original customs, myths and beliefs, as well as ritual behavior. This native Huarayo human settlement constitutes a singular space richly nourished with traditional wisdom and lore and represents an example of harmonious interaction between humans and the jungle environment –together integrating the wholeness of life and world. Through our contact with the guide, we will come to know that these people possess a life of their own –their accounting of the passage of time being marked by the sun, the moon, the stars and the waters. A space where people, plants, animal creatures, rivers and virtually all expressions and forms of life are combined into a compact and indivisible world. A world where all and everything bears a message and a meaning. We shall be able to acquire their handy crafts and folk art -the product of their creativity and dexterity- and, hopefully participate alongside in their traditional singing and dancing. Having departed this unique community, we shall partake of lunch aboard our boat, passing along the way the valley of Palma Real which is graced with a very beautiful landscape and natural splendor. Sometime later, we will arrive back at the Lodge. Diner and overnight.
