The Hummingbird Healing Center opened in 2010 with the intention to help people find healing, growth and transformation in their lives. Working with the medicine plants of both the Amazon and the Andes, for several years we were the only center that offered both ayahuasca and san pedro. We always work with curanderos that have a minimum of 25 years of healing experience. Experience does matter.
Our center has always focused on providing safe and supportive environment, friendly and respectful to women, and excellent care and support both in and out of ceremony. We are proud to say that serving over 1500 people since opening, we have never had a single medical issue related to the medicines.
The Hummingbird Spirit
The Hummingbird is the archetypal animal of the North direction of the Quero medicine wheel. This tiny bird represents courage and perseverance, and in many traditions represents a messenger to and from the spirit world. Its journeys can be long and arduous, and it seems completely physically unsuited for the journeys it undertakes. Yet it goes, finding nectar in unknown places, and bringing a smile to all lucky enough to see it.
Overall, in Native American stories, the hummingbird is associated with healing, wisdom, endurance. This little bird is also very often seen as a messenger sent from heaven.
The hummingbird teaches us that our world can be bigger than we think it can. It expands our territory and shows us where to go, when to leave, and how long to stay. It lets us know that our nectar comes from places we never imagined and reminds us the universe is on our side when we flow with it. If the hummingbird did not obey the direction moving through it, it would not last long. The same is true for us. If we do not follow the pull inside us, we begin to lose our luster. We begin to die.
Here at the Hummingbird Center we encourage people to embrace the spirit of the hummingbird. The journey may seem long and uncertain, no clear path. Yet like the hummingbird we are all far stronger than we appear. Moving forward with faith and commitment, the universe provides the nectar we need, and with persistence we arrive at our destination.
Healing in peace and comfort
Our aim is for you to relax while you process and integrate the work done during ayahuasca ceremony.
Healing with ayahuasca and san pedro can be difficult and challenging. To help make this process a little bit easier we have put a lot of attention into making our facilities as comfortable as possible. Arriving guests regularly comment on how beautiful and peaceful our center is, that it is much nicer than expected. They also remark on how good the energy feels as they walk through the gate.
