Holistic Detox Retreat In Pisac, Peru with Meredith Rose
Currently at least 40% of our pharmaceuticals are derived from plants and at least 25% of these plants are from the Amazon Rain Forest. The knowledge of the healing powers of the plants are held within the indigenous people.
Every venom has an anti-venom. There is a balance in nature. If we trust and work within nature we can heal ourselves.
My name is Meredith Rose. I am currently located in Pisac, Peru. Here I am focusing my attention on helping those in need of healing, and supporting the indigenous people, the guardians of these sacred traditions and healing medicines. I have been working specifically to support the communities that come from the Amazon, as well as people of the Sioux nation. Over the last three months, here at Chispa Wasi in Pisac, I have worked closely with Yawanawa, Huni Kuin, Shipibo and North American Chiefs. The knowledge of the healing powers of the plants are held within the indigenous people. I am currently working on a project to help Huni Kuin women to empower themselves by selling their ancestral art. Not only is it art, each piece shares and is crafted with generations of their people’s wisdom. This project also helps to preserve another important part of their culture.
Over the past decade, I have worked extensively with a variety of plant medicines. I travel to many parts of the world exploring and learning about different traditions and their holistic healing. I founded Heantos Worldwide to help make traditional medicine more accessible. Heantos is an herbal medicine from the Hmong people of the Golden Triangle known for its opium poppy. Over generations, the Hmong people have gathered herbs that grow close to the poppy as a natural anti-venom. Instead of distorting nature they work with it. All the indigenous tribes I have worked with hold to this wisdom.
