Ceremonies of Amazonian Traditional Medicine (ATM)
ATM ceremonies are a healing, human development and psycho-spiritual growth space through the use of sacred and master plants within a ritual environment run by our master folk-healers who have ample experience (more than 20 years).
It seeks to bring into contact people interested in getting to know these technologies and to facilitate experiences within a professional, respectful, safe and therapeutical environment.
It is necessary to have a previous interview with our team of therapists, or to have previously attended a Psycho-Spiritual Growth Retreat.
Activities usually begin at sunset.
They may last between 3 and 6 hours.
The hall becomes a dormitory and, the following morning, food brought by the participants is shared at breakfast, followed by an integration period usually lasting about two hours.
