About this trip

 

This unique jungle trip will open your eyes to life in the Amazon, not as a tourist but as a guest. Over 5 days you will have the opportunity to visit a Cofán/ A’í community and spend time with Cofán/ A’í Master Shaman, Don Avelino Quenama. Traveling into the Amazon, you are invited to stay in the community and experience day to day life with the Shaman and his family.

The lifestyle of the Cofán community is aligned with the principles of “buen vivir” or the “good living”. Exemplified by living the simple life, one that is not defined by things to posses; but emphasizes the connection from within to the Great Mystery. A connection that can be found living close with Pachamama; and honoring this Earth as a living being.

In addition to daily life, you will have the opportunity to explore the healing powers of Yage, also known as Ayahuasca. Yage is a visionary power plant used by the A’í Cofán community for many generations to connect with the Great Mystery. Don Avelino will lead the group to a shamanic state of consciousness in ceremony with this ancient plant medicine; opening the door to deep healing.


This trip is made possible, only through the relationship built between Shaman Don Avelino and his apprentice Wind Malin Disse, Anthropologist. For many years Wind has traveled into the jungle to study with and live with Don Avelino. Wind has been granted permission to bring others into this sacred space and close community.

Accommodation will be in the village. This will be a rustic setting, sleeping on a floor mat. There is space to hang hammocks if you choose to bring one. Mosquito nets are not provided but are highly recommended.

The food will be prepared with love directly by the wife of Don Avelino. You will meet his sons, daughters and grandchildren where you have the opportunity to enjoy living together and exploring together.

Great balance and introduction to many creative ways to focus on your well-being. I loved the experience and would recommend for anyone for at least a week.
Great experience! Durga Tiger School has a wonderful teachers' team with great individual knowledge and when teachers come together, the awareness is even more important. Life changing experience with lots of practical material to go home and be a really grounded Kaula Tantra Yoga Teacher. Forget the books, the mind, start feeling, living, being, doing ... Great food also. Will go back next year to continue the journey, as this journey is never finished... Thank you Durga Tiger School and students along the road.
the zegg community where the training took place is a wonderfull location for alternative projects and also for the inner work that you do in a yoga teacher training. Iris Disse is a very warmhearted teacher, interested in the growth of her students. so I liked the training and the location a lot.
It was wonderful. Great teachers, great location. I learned a lot for my life. I highly recommend this wonderful place.
Nice location and good teaching experience. Tantra yoga, Kundalini yoga and Sjamanisme. Delicious vegetarian food, thanks Nancy. Supper lovely students... I miss them... Inneke
