Hello I have been bringing medical students, colleagues, clients, and patients to the Amazon and the Andes annually since my first visit in 2012. I met Jessica in Peru in 2016 via a mutual friend who *highly* recommended Parign Hak.
I was impressed by her background as a Cultural Anthropologist, Tour Guide, and Curandera. So I resolved to bring my next group to visit with Jessica and Parign Hak tribe.
This visit was phenomenal, to live with a tribe, to become adopted by them, to participate in their daily activities, and ultimately to partake in Ayahuasca ceremony with them and Jessica, was truly a heart-opening experience. Jessica is THE “Jane Goodall of the Jungle”. She is a virtual treasure trove of knowledge about the local plants, trees, and critters, which enhanced our experience.
Jessica emphasized community gatherings, and integration as part of our experience, and the endless support she offered afterwards reflects the impeccable caring and integrity of her work.
These memories live fondly in my heart, and the experience went beyond what we could have imagined.
