It’s our non-profit’s way of saying “Thank You” for supporting the science and practice of healing, and joining our community!
Join Dr. Shamini Jain and Dr. Joe Tafur, as they discuss the powerful role plant medicines play in bridging the two worlds of science and shamanism and assess the healing potential of Amazonian plants and techniques for conditions such as depression, PTSD, psoriasis, emotional trauma, migraine and Crohn’s disease.
Dr. Tafur’s experiences demonstrate the astonishing—mystical, colorful, metaphysical—effects of Traditional Amazonian Plant Medicine. Follow Dr. Tafur as he breaks down the understanding of how psychoactive plants interact with the complex network that connects our minds and hearts to our physical anatomy. What Dr. Tafur presents is nothing short of a paradigm shift for modern medicine, where sacred plants, used properly in ceremony, take their place as important tools in the doctor’s medicine chest, offering the missing elements of emotional and spiritual healing that have eluded us for so long.
Too often, the Western medical approach fails to address the emotional dimension of illness. This is where traditional plant medicines, with their ability to alter consciousness and open channels of communication to our emotions, offer so much promise.
Dr. Joe Tafur
Dr. Tafur has been an Integrative Medicine activist throughout his medical career, while in medical school at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine, and during his Family Medicine Residency at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). After residency, Dr. Tafur completed a two-year Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship at the UCSD Department of Psychiatry.
After this research fellowship, Dr. Tafur continued work as a Family Physician in the U.S., and then started his work in the Peruvian Amazon. In 2011, he helped to found Nihue Rao Centro Espiritual, a traditional healing center in the Peruvian Upper Amazon. At Nihue Rao, Dr. Tafur underwent apprenticeship in Traditional Amazonian Plant Medicine and Shipibo Curanderismo.
In 2017, after years dedicated to his work in the forest, Dr. Tafur stepped down as a business partner at Nihue Rao in order to focus on new projects. In March of 2017, he published his book The Fellowship of the River: A Medical Doctor’s Exploration into Traditional Amazonian Plant Medicine about his unique journey into spiritual healing.
