Refugio Altiplano - Amazon healing the native way

Refugio Altiplano - Amazonian Center for Shamanic Healing and Natural Medicine: this center is located up the Amazon River (south from Iquitos). It focuses on shamanism and the uses of healing plants. Ayahuasca is the most intriguing of the rainforest flora, but there are others. The Refugio provides a number of tourist excursions and activities, ranging from the esoteric to the touristic.

Scott Petersen is the Founder and Director of the Refugio Altiplano since 1996. He has traveled around the world investigating shamanism and herbal medicine. He currently lives in Refugio.

By the way, the Refugio is not really "high plateau," but very low in the Amazon River Basin. I had never heard of this place before, but it strikes a cord.
