YOUR MEDICINE WOMXN
Jane Mayer is a shamanic healer, poet, and ceremonialist who has studied with indigenous healers in the mountains of Peru, the Amazon, and the highlands of Ireland, alongside powerful teachers in the Western world.
For many years, Spirit called to her from a well of deep emotional and physical pain, and she has chronicled her mystical personal healing journey to wholeness through extensive poetry. She works with plant medicine, sacred sound, somatic experiencing, dream work, and multidimensional healing to support individuals and communities in transmuting their grief and pain into pathways to embodied soul.
She leads ceremonies across the country, as well as international retreats, and works with individuals and organizations to help them remember who they really are. Her deepest mission in this lifetime is to use these ancient practices to heal the modern world, specifically women, families, and young people ages 8-18.
She is listening to still, small voices everywhere.

Maggie McCloud is a multidimensional guide, Earthkeeper, and plant medicine advocate. Here in service to the awakening of humanity, her mission is to help people reconnect to their hearts and bring their unique visions to life. She has been working with Ayahuasca since 2014 and has deep reverence for this medicine and this path.
Maggie lives a nomadic lifestyle and is currently based in the Hudson River Valley of New York. After working at Google for 5 years, she left to follow her heart’s deepest desire of starting her own business. Maggie is the co-creatress of Tesora Sacred Travel and teaches an online course for female entrepreneurs called Project Phoenix, which fuses her business skills with her shamanic studies.

Carolina will be the facilitator for our Ayahuasca Ceremonies. We partner with her organization, Tree of Light Retreats, which holds a safe space for women to experience Ayahuasca in the Shipibo tradition. She lives in the Sacred Valley of Peru with her partner and beautiful daughter.
Carolina first began working with Ayahuasca in 2010. After her first ceremony she knew that she had found her teacher, and in 2011 she made her first journey to Peru to work with Shipibo healers. Her experiences were so profound that she decided to make a big life change and move to the jungle. She spent the next few years working closely with the medicine and other plant dietas. She received a very deep calling from the plants to help share their wisdom and support others choosing to step onto this path.
YOUR MEDICINE MEN
Pedro first began working with Ayahuasca in the Shipibo tradition in 2012 and having found his greatest teachers there, remained in the Amazon jungle for the following 2 years where he trained and worked in a large Ayahuasca center.
It was there that he met his partner Carolina and experienced first hand the major transformational work that is possible with Ayahuasca through his deep connection with plant medicines.
In this time he also witnessed and supported many others on their healing journeys and furthered his connection and understanding of the Shipibo culture through “plant dieta” and the creation of music projects with the healers.
Pedro is currently based in the Sacred Valley, Peru with his family and continues to study these ancient healing practices through regular dietas with Noya Rao and other Master Plants. He feels truly honored to co-facilitate with his beautiful partner and to share this incredible healing tradition, safely and lovingly with the world.
Coca leaf reading is on Andean Spiritual tradition and Puma is a master of this plant spirit divination. Puma was born in the highlands of Chinchero, in the Andean region of Peru. Since the age of six he was trained by his Grandfather in the traditional ways of the Paqo (Andean Medicine man). Puma is a highly recognised and respected Paqo and his presence on our retreat is a huge honor.
