Arhuaco Mamos
from the Sierra Nevada-Colombia

The sacred priesthood of the Mamos is recognized by scholars as one of the most extraordinary and sophisticated spiritual systems that are still practiced in the world today. Much more than a belief system or a religion, this spiritual science is transmitted through an extremely strict, long and difficult method of apprenticeship.

from the Amazon Basin-Peru

The Shipibo-Conibo people, originating along the Ucayali River in the Peruvian Upper Amazon, are well known for their shamanic healing traditions and their vast knowledge of plant and trees medicines of the rainforest. The Shipibo have a particularly strong relationship with ayahuasca and many consider the Shipibo to be the most highly skilled ayahuasca healers in the Peruvian Amazon.
