My journey with Kambo began on a back porch in Topanga Canyon. During my first sit with Kambo I experienced what is known as the ‘vibration of the frog.’ My ears were slightly warm and my head began to feel rushed. I recall seeing someone standing to my side. Before I knew it, I passed out. I recall feeling every cell of my body. This felt intuitive and natural. I was aware of each breath I took. My mind was peaceful, content, clear and for what felt like the first time, absolutely silent.
I woke up to a deep awareness that it was my life’s calling to work with Kambo.
The Amazon jungle has a way of swallowing the world around you in all at once. Within weeks, I found myself traveling to Acre, Brazil to visit, study, and learn more about Kambo with the Yawanawa tribe. There, I stayed in the jungle outside of the main village surrounded by 200 or more tribe members. My hut was simple made of palm leave and bamboo. The conditions were extreme.
The humidity seemed to be 100 and the temperatures seemed never to drop below 90. There was no running water, no plumbing, and no electricity, except for a generator that came on one hour per day. Even the seemingly simple things like ice or hot water were absent. I missed my family and children deeply. This experience left me humbled and driven to learn as much as I could about the people and their way of being.
I spent several days observing the Bicolor Phyllomedusa frog in the jungle. We sourced frogs in their natural habitat, careful not to harm them. I learned to extract the milky secretions and know the difference between male and female frogs as well as their relative ages. It was here that I developed a sacred, personal relationship with the frog, a pure blessing. The results of my travels and ongoing work in the jungle continue to add depth to my intuitive nature and connection with Kambo.
My experiences with Kambo have given me a whole new view of life and a deeply rooted commitment to love and serve others just as the people of the Amazon taught and served me. Drawing on my background within the holistic culture, I became the first individual to bring the healing powers of Kambo to Utah in a formal setting to the community.
