Why Ancestral Plant Medicine; Why Us


Deep friendship, a passion for Ancestral Medicine and a strong desire to make a difference led us, Bluestone and SpiritRivers to form an alliance. We advocate that personal transformation is the only way to greater consciousness and a better world, and that Ancestral Medicine is one of the most effective tools for bringing about that change, especially when combined with personal responsibility and a deep sense  of connection to nature and community.

We are in a unique position to offer you a way to deeply rewarding work with master plant medicine as we are westerners who share with you a culture, a language and a mindset. Decades of personal work with plant medicine have also rendered us initiates of a kind—shamanic practitioners, intuitives & facilitators—and allowed us to craft a way for the western mind to navigate and dialogue with the wonders and healing energies of Ancestral Medicine.

Most of us live in the world of the senses: we believe that only things we can see, touch and hear are ‘real’. Westerners don’t easily accept the world of Spirit as ‘real’ and we generally are resistant to it. We know all this because we’ve been there, yet there is a way; an elegant, gentle way to walk the world of the intangible with plant medicine. This is what we offer you: an approach that will grant you entrée into the world of Spirit of which you are an intimate part. 

Indeed, Spirit is your essence and your origin. Come explore the world of infinite possibilities and profound permanent healing. Once you’ve worked with Master Plant medicine you will never look at yourself and the world the same again.

Our focus

Ancestral Medicine

Ancestral medicine, also called plant medicine or teacher plant medicine, is the path of profound healing through the heart. It is the work of the heart not the mind, so ‘feeling the call’ to work with a master plant is a feeling that defies words and reason. It is a call from the depth of Spirit. For those of us crossing paths with this wonder in any way— meeting someone who has taken it, watching a documentary, reading an article—it’s because our spirits are prodding us toward a tool that right now, at this moment in our lives can work for us. That is what we personally believe.

This is a one-of-a-kind journey that will turn your life around: an extraordinary retreat with the ancestral medicine


Huachuma led by a deeply experienced facilitator adept in South American shamanism who shares medicine around the world using a range of earth-based medicines and skilled processes to prepare you to take maximum advantage of the journey, and who send you home prepared to translate what you’ve learned into permanent change. Being able to integrate the healing is everything and Frédéric Cherri is a master of personalised integration techniques.

Our retreats are set in the Yucatan jungle in Mexico; far from the madding crowd, steeped in birdsong, wind and sun.

If you feel the call, act. If you wish to heal and live through the heart, take the step. Change is inevitable, personal transformation is a choice

The how

3 Steps

Preparation and integration frame the experience and with good reasons.


Working with ancestral medicine immerses you in a space both natural and sacred wherein you discover the essence of everything. However, to successfully navigate this space preparation is the key that allows you to access the remarkable characteristics of this medicine with complete confidence, even wonder and joy.


An ancestral medicine ceremony is a powerful heart-opening journey
for seekers ready to explore their capacity to live a fulfilled life. The fundamental aspects of this event are the ceremony and the rituals that empower it and give it shape. The ceremony is organised around the South American Medicine Wheel and the seven directions of the shamanic cosmovision.


Integrating this experience means making it “real” and successfully a part of your everyday life as you move on. Sharing and witnessing within a group are fundamental to making sense of the messages, visions and revelations that the ceremony has offered. Facilitators, through their presence and enhanced perception, offer the guidance necessary for a deep understanding of the experience.
