Why Are We Here?
Hello, my name is Shawn and I live in the jungles of Colombia with my wife Abigail and our baby puppy Manja. Thank you for your interest with The Native Guides. We are pleased to share the beauty that has been revealed to us. We work directly with the Indigenous Taitas that possess the powerful wisdom of ancestral medicines.
We take the medicines seriously and we expect the same from you. This is a very special and sacred process. We respect this path and everything we do is with love, peace, and understanding for the healing power of the spirit. We are humbly ready to receive and be at service to you, the medicine, and mankind.
If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, we are not for you. But, if you are ready to be pulled from the womb of Mother Earth and start your powerful transformational healing process, we will take you to the true medicine.
At The Native Guides, our programs are designed to strip you of the negative weight in which we all carry, allowing you the freedom of a rebirth and the choice to create a new continuance of life.
Our ceremonies are served by powerful Taitas who hold the knowledge of ancestral medicines passed down from many generations. Our cleaning process is natural and pure, the way it has been done for thousands of years. The drinking of the Ayahuasca cup is only one of our tools. We will immerse ourselves in nature through several ancestral medicines such as Rapé, Mambe, Ambil, and Tobacco.
We offer a 10 day Ayahuasca Initiation and Strengthening Program. Our program is located in Putumayo, Colombia.
In the 10 day program, we will go further and deeper into the medicine and our practice together. We will work on concentration, meditation, and healing. On this journey, we will share three transformational and healing ceremonies together. We will begin to adjust our frequency before we share the medicine. We will have a day to process and share medicine in front of a beautiful waterfall, allowing the strength of the water to seal our bodies and truly process the experience.
Please know that our programs are subject to change.
Our 10 day Ayahuasca Initiation and Strengthening Program is $3,500 USD.
This cost covers your trip from the moment you land at the airport in Villagarzón throughout the remainder of your stay. Please bring Colombian pesos, no foreign currency will be accepted. Plane tickets are not included.
You may want to bring additional currency for personal items. There are many unique and beautiful handmade pieces to take home with you. We will have medicines that you will partake in available for purchase, such as Rapé, Mambe, Ambil, and Tobacco.
Have no fear of travel in the mind. We are located in Putumayo, Colombia which is the only Amazonian state found at the foothills of the Andes Mountains. The department of Putumayo is a small city that is very family oriented. I am sure it is safer than where you are reading this from.
To get to us, you must first fly to Bogotá, Colombia. Once you land in Bogotá, you must stay the night. The next day, you will fly Satena Airlines from Bogota to Villagarzón. Villagarzón is where we will pick you up from the airport.
At this moment, a PCR Test or Vaccine Card are required to enter Colombia.
MEDITATION & PRAYER
We do not charge for accommodations. You will be staying with us in our home.
Please know we are very selective in who we allow to join our healing process. We are looking for those who are ready to take the next step. We do not have much time together. We all must focus on our intentions. Please fill out our Questionnaire and be honest with your words. Give us depth in our conversations together. We will review each questionnaire and have an additional interview process.
