The best journey I ever made

This experience left me speechless. I studied a full month at Alquimia and I had the chance to learn the shamanic practice and the plant alchemy. I spent days with locals curanderos and shamans and went deeply into the natural world. Classes are tailor made and one feels enthusiastic and fulfilled. Meditation time and ceremonies are simply beautiful.
Now I can clearly see all the teachings and I can prepare my herbal remedies and food.
Highly suggested. A fantastic journey.

The greatest learning period, a real alchemy apprenticeship

I did have some academic background in herbalism before studying at Alquimia.. but I finally found a diverse, stimulating approach to learning.
My mind is now more inquisitive and responsive. I feel like I have refreshed my vital force and I have finally reconnected to my body through the meditation practice and a less artificial lifestyle.
If you look for a new agey luxury experience this is not the place. At Alquimia you learn how to be naked to life and how to regain your purest self without filters.
The teachings are inspiring and empowering.
Thanks to the all community and crew... You definitely make a change in one's perspective.

Life changing

I did an internship at Alquimia to learn about the Mayans ancient practice through plants, ceremonies and retreats. Elisa, who is our teacher helped us to experience what it meant to understand plants as well as allowing us to meet these plants through jungle walks, ceremonies and teachings. I am honestly happy that I got the opportunity to participate in all the wonderful experiences that Alquimia offered. While doing an internship at Alquimia you will experience different changes. The first change you will experience is being engulfed by the surrounding sounds that the nature of the jungle produces. Then you will recognize plants and develop a relationship with them. The rest of the change is in you and you realize more about your self then you probably ever have. I liked all the lessons and experiences about Alquimia because I wasn't only learning about plants, Mayan ceremonies, sound frequency and more but I was learning about myself the whole time as well. The sound frequency classes provided by Davide are amazing. You will become more and more intrigued by all of the lessons these two wonderful teachers have to offer. I recommend everyone to go into the jungle and just be. This is a place for everyone because nature never rejects those who to learn about her. Thank you Alquimia for the greatest experiences of my life and hope to return soon to learn more.

Simply beautiful

No words can describe what my experience has been.
I feel grateful for all the teachings and the community warmth.
I would suggest this internship for a profound exploration of Maya medicine and herbalism.

The powerful Cacao plant and the Mayans

There are no words to describe my experience at Alquimia. Everything has been smooth and fluid, as I was nestled in a dream. Cacao gave me the creative strength and power to perform daily meditation and I finally found myself grounded. The classes are very flexible and full of insights. I received precious teachings on Mayan ancient culture and healing sounds. I also had the chance to live within the community and ferment my cacao. Unbelievable experience.
