Lorraine Glatigny, is a Western healer who began her work with traditional medicine Shipibo in 2008. In her first apprenticeship year she did a one year of learning diet, as it is traditionally done in the Amazon. She was given a Western plant, which allowed her to reconnect with the medicinal plants of Europe and thus create a bridge between Amazonian medicine and the lost knowledge of our grandmothers of Europe.
She learned from Mesta Niwe Western man, Panshin Beka, and Justina “Muraya” women, a title given to the most advanced level of Shipibo medicine, with whom she performed several diets and long stays in the Amazon rainforest. Through the diet, these women have passed on their knowledge of how to enter into a direct energetic relationship with plants and treat patients by singing sacred songs which work directly on energy. She spent several months with various traditional Filipino healers who passed on her the oldest practice of healing, the "Hilot", therapeutic massage.
She also learned from the Queeros, the last Peruvian Andes descend from the Incas. She lived among the Tao's Batu (people of the rock) in the Philippines, one of the few tribes isolated from the rest of the country, where her integration was possible because they recognized her as a healer.

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
The in-person five-day immersive includes in total four live group calls of 90min each.
During those calls, we will have dedicated time for preparation and integration, with tools such as:
- intention building
- diet requirement
- flower essence intake prep/healing
- cognitive, and emotional tools
- journaling exercises
- and more...Intake Process:
It is important for you and the facilitator to establish trust and rapport. This is essential for loving and safe guidance. Therefore, we will start with an online introduction chat of 30min. We both should feel into each other’s personality, ability, and readiness for the initiation, and of course, you might have questions and be in need of feedback.
During the discovery call we will walk through the following:
· Establishing rapport between participants & practitioner
· Developing personal intention
· Physical & mental, health screening including contraindicated conditions & medications
· Other necessary information for your participation (diet etc.)
· Privacy & Confidentiality
· Providing a clear overview of what to expect from the experience through the integration
· Providing clear written communications & essential introductory information
· Answering any and all questions in advance if necessary
Once attendance is confirmed the participants receive a clearly written workbook ‘Sacred Ceremonial Guide’ with essential introductory information, preparations, and integrations tools.Supplemental Modalities: One to One CoachingPsychedelic Substances Offered: 5-MEO-DMT, Bufo Alvarius, or Psilocybin MushroomHow does this Center source medicine?:
