Why are so many people are turning to Kambô?
Kambô has been used by tribes for centuries, and is now sweeping the globe as the reports of life-changing health transformations flood in. Kambô is being used day in and day out by thousands of people safely, despite the vast array of sensitivities and physical circumstances of the people receiving it. Even when used by inexperienced practitioners and individuals, this medicine is largely safe, and can still have very significant effects.
Why train as a Kambô practitioner?
Often the ‘traditional’ way of applying Kambô can be very unceremonious, so why the need for study and guidance?
In many ways we, in the West, are different to the jungle folk. We suffer a host of different cultural circumstances, toxicological and sociological diseases, and live in societies where the weak have been surviving for centuries due to advances in medicine. People who come to circles can have a dazzling array of circumstances. Some people get the ‘calling’ to do this work. It means that people in the UK can access this sacred medicine without flying to South America. Becoming a medicine carrier is an honour and a responsibility. It takes a collection of skills, most of which can be learned. In service to this beautiful natural medicine you will be witness to many transformations. You, like us, will most likely be humbled by the power of Kambô
Kambô is a strong medicine and people’s reactions can be varied and intense. It takes a certain type of person to be able to hold space for this. There are lots of skills involved and walking on this path means getting to know health in general in a deep way. This is why we think it’s important to spread this training out, to have continued guidance and community through which to share information and grow together. The practice is young in the West – in terms of knowing how it applies to us and our differing needs, circumstances
Kambô is a sacred medicine, and also a tool. A tool can do damage or repair depending on how it is used. As an energy medicine, the practitioner needs to be sensitive to individual needs, able to assess a client properly to ensure safety and create the ideal environment for the medicine to be received in a healing way. The deeper the level of safety the client receives, the more they will be able to release the ‘panema’ – the jungle term for stuck, trapped and blocked energy.
We believe that a holistic approach to offering Kambô significantly enhances the outcome. We believe that adapting the ceremony culturally whilst respecting the teachings of the tribes is the safest way to offer this medicine
We believe that the safety and efficacy of this medicine can be enhanced by a broad training in healing, space holding and complementary techniques
Who this course is for
In order to become a practitioner you need to have had some experience with Kambô, although it is perfect for both those with little or no experience in healing or applying Kambô, and those with lots of experience of either. It is for those with a calling to be in service to healing and to the unfolding of health and happiness.
It’s important that the course you are embarking on is completed before you serve Kambô unsupervised and it’s assumed that by applying for this course you are committing to do this.
The dates for the weeks are as follows:
- September 2-8 – Everything you need to know to get going – Giovanni Lattanzi
