Explore how you can heal from unresolved experiences and emotional wounds through Indigenous wisdom and sacred ceremony guided by a reputable physician in an integration of science and spirit for a more holistic approach to health and wellbeing.

 
The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.
Hippocrates
 

We’re in the midst of an accelerating physical and mental health crisis across the world causing many to feel anxious, disconnected from their spiritual heritage, and deprived of an essential component in their lives.

Meanwhile, many would agree that the Western healthcare system is failing to help individuals address underlying emotional and psychological issues that are contributing to their disease.

But what if our system considered the invaluable knowledge and philosophy of Indigenous cultures and stopped overlooking the healing properties of medicinal plants and spiritual practices that can lead to more balanced and sustainable healing?

This question has led us to a Psychedelic Renaissance a time when an increasing number of experts concur that more integrative thinking is needed to heal unresolved experiences and emotions from your past.

There’s exciting research on psychedelic therapies that demonstrates their ability to contribute to a deeper healing journey especially when combined with spiritual practices.

These types of treatments have been shown to inspire a renewed sense of self-awareness and personal growth, with an emotional and spiritual growth component. Moreover, they’ve been found to have a lasting positive impact on patients’ overall wellbeing and sense of purpose.

Dr. Joe Tafur, a Colombian-American family physician, has devoted his life to bridging the gap between modern medicine and Indigenous wisdom. He integrates both scientific and spiritual worldviews into his work as an integrative physician, academic, and traditional healer bringing a unique perspective to healing through his experience with Amazonian plant medicine.

During this course, Dr. Tafur will discuss these unique experiences and integrative medical theories that combine the best of Western medicine and Indigenous healing practices. You’ll discover the wisdom of traditional Amazonian plant medicine, including Ayahuasca, and learn how it can help heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Dr. Tafur employs an impressive array of tools and techniques to help bridge the gap in healing and help his clients and students reach their goals. Utilizing love and emotional approaches alongside Indigenous wisdom and mystical approaches, he draws on data from neuroscience, psychology, and what’s known about mind/body interactions.

Traditional Indigenous culture functions with the understanding that in order to heal our relationship with nature, we have to heal our relationship with ourselves. Loving ourselves more also allows us to love nature and the ecosystem as a whole, creating a more connected and healthier world.

Throughout this enlightening course, you’ll ultimately explore this healing power of love and how it can expand your capacity to find your own inner healer.

 
 
 

During this informative and transformational intensive, you’ll:

  • Discover how psychedelic medicines and traditional practices can help transform healthcare by addressing the emotional and spiritual aspects of health in addition to the physical

Dr. Tafur will provide a comprehensive multidisciplinary experience that can empower one to live with greater balance, peace, clarity, and purpose using a variety of tools and approaches, such as body scan meditations, traditional energy healing techniques, and many other empowering techniques.

Ancestral wisdom gives us the spiritual growth we need for deeper healing. In that sense, spirituality and health are one and the same, guiding us toward right relationship with ourselves, our loved ones, our community, our world, and the universe.

Psychedelic therapies have shown great promise in helping individuals access and process unresolved emotional trauma. When properly supported, these therapies can encourage a deep sense of healing in the emotional dimension, which can translate into physical healing as well.

To illustrate these concepts, we’ll examine specific cases presented in Dr. Tafur’s book, The Fellowship of the River, and connect them to modern practices of psychedelic therapy. We’ll also discuss traditional beliefs surrounding susto, soul loss, and soul retrieval providing you an understanding of the rigorous training that healers undergo in traditional healing practices.

Much has been written in recent years about ayahuasca, the Amazonian brew that evokes visions and insights.

This book makes a strong case for the synergetic fusion of modern and traditional medicine to create a newer, more powerful paradigm that recognizes the primacy of the human mind in healing.
