The Shaman's Last Apprentice
'The Shaman's Last Apprentice' is a narrative documentary focusing on the story of Rebekah Shaman, who in 1997 followed a vision she received from a Shaman calling her to the Amazon, where she found and studied intensively with a powerful Ayahuasquero Shaman in a little village nestled in a remote corner of the Amazon rainforest. Now she tells of her unique story working with the Shaman and Ayahuasca to connect with Mother Earth.
What follows is a warning from the Shaman to the West that we urgently need to change our relationship with each other, and with mother Earth.
Only when we understand how vital each one of us is to the future unfolding of this planetary story, can we find the courage to let go of the fear, evolve consciously, and step into our own power so we can be the change.

Kapitari Ayahuasca Center
Don Lucho (Luis Culquiton) talks about his Ayahuasca center; Kapitari.
The Kapitari Center was founded by the shaman Don Lucho (Luis Culquiton) in 1980 with the objective of helping to protect the incredible biodiversity of the Peruvian Amazon.
Don Lucho (Luis Culquitón) is a fairly unique shaman in Iquitos for a few reasons. Firstly, he never underwent a formal apprenticeship under another shaman. Don Lucho has been communicating with the spirits of his ancestors (of the Cocama tribe) since he was a young child and he has received all his knowledge and training directly from the spirits and the plants he has dieted. He was just 12 years old when he undertook his first plant diet.
