If we do not attain the full amount by the May 5th then we will buy other parcels of land with the amount we have raised. However, the main 300 acre parcel of land will be purchased
that is interested in dividing the land - potentially cutting down the
old growth trees and mining the land. This is of course
explicitly against the wishes of the Amazanga people.
This project was inspired by Flavio Santi, healer and advocate for the
Amazanga people. Your donation will go towards not only purchasing the
acreage but will also help the Amazanga shamans, healers, teachers, and
children realize their dream of developing the School of Guayusa
- their school of natural medicine and healing. This will also be a
place where cultures from all over the world can come to learn how to
take care of the forest and share their own sacred ways.
Words from Flavio Santi...
"Our community is now working
to save 300 acres of sacred jungle to protect against threats and
destruction, and to build a new center for the School of Guayusa, the
ancient school of nature. The School of Guayusa is a place to preserve
and share ancestral wisdom, natural healing, herbal medicine, the
ancient traditions of spiritual communion with the forest, and the
reconnection between humankind and mother earth."
