If you would like to participate in one of our training courses in the future, please send us an email to receive updates




We are happy to invite you to our 21 days Kambo Naturista training where you can learn all the necessary about how to use safely Kambo medicine. During this intensive retreat you will learn to apply Kambo as well as the origins of the medicine, how to find and to “milk” the frogs and you will have the opportunity to connect deeply to the frog spirit using a shamanic way from the jungle called “Dieta”.

The training is set up so that you can learn step by step how to use this medicine for yourself and as well how to facilitate it for others. You will also have the possibility to meet members of the Matses tribe and learn about their traditional work with the Kambo.

 The knowledge is adapted to western standards and that is why it can be easily applied anywhere on the world. All the Kambo Naturista practitioners will have the possibility after completing the training, to connect with us for any open questions. We will add you to our private KN group where you can discuss your questions with other practitioners as well and all Kambo Naturista students that accomplish this training successfully will also be listed on our website as KN qualified practitioners.

The Sanaga is made by the Matses tribe and the Rapé comes from Brazil made by different tribes living there. 


It is recommended that all participants arrive a few days prior to the dates of the retreat in order to acclimatize to the environment. We can help you to find the right accommodation in town. It is good to have some rest after the trip, overcoming the jet lag and getting ready for the jungle . 



We will depart around midday to the Bella Vista port in Iquitos from where we will take a boat ride for approximately 50 min., followed by a short drive on a moto-taxi that will bring us close to the entrance of our Center from where we only have to take a short walk.

 Once we arrive at the center we will accommodate you in your bungalow and provide a brief tour of the Center.

 After the lunch you will receive a deeper introduction into the training and the following work.



We will start with the 1st Kambo ceremony guided by Deyan, including basic theory and a step by step explanation of the process.



Introduction to different medicines and instruments that are used in addition to the Kambo ceremony. (Rape, Nu-Nu, Tobacco, Sananga, Agua Florida , etc.)

 You will learn to make your own Chacapa rattle and learn how to use it.  We will practice Kambo songs as well.

Shamanic Breath-work

 Voice opening and practicing of Kambo songs.



In the morning we will have theory on:

    Holistic medicine (body, soul & mind)

   How to work with the Kambo on a holistic level

   The shamanic approach

   How to create and hold a ceremonial space

   Practical and technical exercises


We will have a longer break and then after dinner we will go with the Matses men to look for the frogs.



We will spend the morning milking the frogs and extracting their precious medicine. Following there will be the 2nd Kambo application that will be performed by Robinson.  You will have the possibility to experience the power of the fresh medicine directly from the frog and see how a Matses treatment is performed.

 Later in the afternoon, we will have the opportunity to listen to the Matses stories and they will answer all your questions about their tribe and their use of the Kambo.


Practicing Kambo songs



Theoretical discussion with the following topics:

    Safe use of Kambo

   Application techniques

   How to support patients during the process

   First-aid for over reaction

   Questions & answers

   How to integrate this traditional knowledge in modern society.


Dry run on self-application and preparation for the dieta.


DAY 7-14


Throughout the dieta you will have 4 Kambo ceremonies that are obligatory, but we also give the opportunity to have up to 3 more extra Kambo sessions during the dieta if anyone feels called to do this.


The obligatory sessions are on the 1st 3rd 5th and 7th day of dieta and the optional sessions are on the days in between.


We will meet in the morning, and one by one, each student will give Kambo to themselves, with our guidance.


You will have the possibility to clarify with us any questions connected to the Kambo medicine but we are asking all the students to remain mostly in silence and only focus on the Kambo work during the dieta in order to get the most out of the dieta process.


On the 8th day of the dieta there will be no Kambo sessions and all the dieteros will have the opportunity to experience the traditional dieta.  This means, the dieteros will be asked to stay in their huts during the whole day.  The food will be brought to everyone in their huts and there will be a visit from the teachers where the dieteros can express their process if needed.  Otherwise the dieteros will remain in silence until the next day.

The process is a great opportunity to connect deeper with the frog spirit.


DAY 15

In the morning we will end the dieta and the students will enter the post-dieta.

 Integration work of the dieta teachings, dreams sharing and interpretation of the visions.

 Shamanic Breath-work

 Practical exercises and preparation for the application to others


DAY 16-17

We will split into 2 groups: one will apply the medicine and the other one will receive it.

Guided by the supervision of the trainer you will get an opportunity to perform everything you learned during the training and it will be adjusted if needed.

 The groups will switch roles the day after.

 In the afternoon we will analyze the work of each person and give feedback on their work.


DAY 18-19

We will again have 2 groups: one will apply the medicine and the other one will receive it. At this point the students should be able safely to apply Kambo to others without any help from the trainers.

Those students that perform the application safely without any help from outside will be listed on the Kambo Naturista list as qualified practitioners.

 The groups will switch roles the day after.

 In the afternoon we will analyze the work of each person and give feedback on their work.
