Recommendation for Alternatur Cuenca, Shuar Workshop

I attended the Shuar Natural Medicine Workshop last month, and at the event I was able to gain a much better understanding of Shuar culture and how they use plants from the Amazon jungle to treat common ailments. Juanito performed a traditional arrival ritual for everyone present, and afterwards he went on to describe in great detail the different plants and how they are used in natural therapies, as is customary of Shuar tradition. It was a great experience, that allowed me to learn in depth the manner in which the Shuar community in Ecuador use ancestral knowledge to treat a wide range of illnesses. Thank you for allowing me to participate in this very special event. I look forward to all the workshops being organized by Alternatur Cuenca.
