It is often difficult to put words to a life-changing experience, so I will keep this short.
The work one ends up doing here is internal and personal, and I can't think of a better setting or family to hold that kind of internal work. Leonardo's 71 years of experience and quiet, good-natured wisdom combine beautifully with his daughter's generosity and compassion. She keeps track of every guest's situation and translates for her father, who speaks only limited Spanish. Together they are an extraordinary team, and the kind of healing they facilitate is truly rare. I left the jungle feeling incredibly grateful for the opportunity to interact with natural medicine in such an authentic, humble context.
