ABOUT US

Katari is a healing center, nested in the middle of the virgin amazonian jungle, that caters to people in search of deep personal growth at a physical, mental, and spiritual level.

Many of our guest have experienced:

  • purification, regeneration and harmonisation on corporal and mental dispositions
  • clarity about life path and new perspective on personal issues
  • emotional liberation, renovation of vital energies
  • healing of subacute or chronical diseases
  • awakening of own spiritual strength
  • connection with nature inside and outside
  • facing proper fears or other types of blockage
  • a new sense of peace and happyness to their life.

Since everybody disposes of his or her own nature, there is no general result of the programme- they are as various and colourful as the persons that attend them!

History Of Katari

Katari (which means snake in indigenous Aymara language) first opened its doors to humanity on 7 Years ago. Since then, guests and volunteers from all over the world have enjoyed the abundance of life, sounds, and smells of this incredible virgin rainforest…“animals singing their way from sunrise and sunset, and a kaleidoscope of beautiful colors and heart warming smells that fill even the smallest space“

Little by little a botanical garden of healing plants is being set up and the guardian’s family with 5 children is giving joyful life to the site. With the help of many generous and pure hearts Herbert Quinteros has been leading the creation of this authentic, sheltered space of virgin rainforest.

Our Vision Statement

We would like to offer a platform to people, regardless of race, up-bringing or believes, that allows for individual growth at a physical, spiritual or emotional level, through the use of traditional medicinal plants.

May peace and happiness spread around the world in difficult times like little lights- all in alignment with Mother Earth (Sachamama in Quechua language) and the Universal Forces, developing a new consciousness and making use of new technologies. As a base or a bridge we appreciate and apply the traditional instruments indigenous people of the Amazon have acquired and developed over thousands of years. Their cosmovision is tightly connected to their environment in a big circle of live. That’s why it is one of our tasks as well to cherish and protect the rain forest, home to numerous animals and plants which serve in so many different ways:

The Amazon forest is the biggest jungle in our world.  Approximately half of all rain forest in the world lies in  the area of the Amazon (6.74 million km2). Many parts are primary growth rainforest and only recently humanity is realizing its importance on the global climate.

 “… with the voice of a grand-father and of a child I express the ikaros (traditional medicine songs) and medicinal melodies as they manifest themselves to guide us and to bring us centered in our personal work- to the inside and to the outside- perfectly alined with the universe… eachone can heal wounds and drink of the universal wisdom which is talking to us with love”
