“When diet is wrong medicine is of no use.
When diet is correct medicine is of no need.”
- Ancient Ayurvedic Proverb
maru Spirit was formed with a single intention: to bring together the healing and cleansing of the body with herbs and plants, with the healing and cleansing of the soul with Ayahuasca. Ayahuasca is too often regarded as a magic bullet, tasked with the ability to cure and clean decades of spiritual and physical problems in a few days. Ayahuasca is a very powerful tool, but must be used in a holistic manner – as a part of a larger process of physical cleansing. This is our passion and calling.
We are based in the Amazon rainforest, near Iquitos, Peru. The Amazon contains an extraordinary wealth of fruits and plants that are unparalleled for healing a staggering variety of human ailments. Many of these locally grown fruits and medicinal plants are used in our healing regimens.
The body has a tremendous capacity for healing itself. For this process to function correctly, the body, mind and spirit have to be prepared to allow the body to heal itself. This inner healer exists in all of us, and merely needs to be unleashed. In Western modalities of healing, we are generally taught to view healing as an external, which is to say a physical, process. Internal aspects–the spiritual and psychosomatic dimensions–are often underutilized when we seek healing through the artifice of medical authority alone, as this authority in itself may instruct, but cannot heal. The only way to heal yourself is to discover the healer inside. Healing does not take place through a single event, or modality – it is a fully holistic experience – supporting the process of change.

To unleash the healing process within, it is fundamental to remove congestion from the body. Proper nutrition from raw whole superfoods, excercise, reflection and a peaceful and supporting environment are all necessary. You can read more about me and my experience in the Amazon here.
