Learn about shamanism and help us with social work


The Exchange

We are a project dedicated to healing, relaxation and consciousness expansion. We specialize in Ayahuasca medicine and holistic therapies. You will learn about shamanism, plants, and culture from people that have been directly influenced by Shamans, Taitas, and Ayahuasqueros. This is an ancient knowledge that dates hundreds of years ago. This is a unique experience, and not the traditional job. Our guides are considered Ayahuasca therapists

Program Details

We want you to be part of our team in our retreat center. We are looking for someone who is passionate about helping others and shows respect to master plants. Somebody that's looking towards the evolution of the collective consciousness and that’s also naturally kind with people.

We need somebody who doesn't play around and likes to have a purpose in life, somebody who's determined to give as much as needed for others, people with the attitude to work hard.

We basically need you to help in the ceremony, in the house, garden, and other chores. You can also help in the farm to plant trees, grow seeds, fruit pickup and build things.



Activities & Shift

Gardening activities, visits to a wild animal shelter, workshops about medicinal plants and shamanism, walks to local and natural places, fruit pickup, food making, learn holistic therapies, tarot readings, musical gatherings, soft hiking, visits to rivers, lakes and share with the community.


Rules

This is a very serious job. The life and safety of other people depend on you. You have to be responsible and organized all the time, daily showers are required and you need to know how to establish healthy boundaries with people in order to not affect their personal journeys.

We are not the hostel or party ambient type of place and are more the family-type of environment. We usually would not allow people to drink alcohol in the property. If you are doing it or any illegal drugs, you will be asked to leave within a reasonable period of time. Be punctual, be fast and be conscious about what kind of energy you are putting to the work you are doing.
