Many people come from throughout the world to work with the shamans of the Jungle with Ayahuasca. I wanted to point out the fact of how difficult it is for the lives of the people on the rivers and surrounding areas. Since I have been in Iquitos since June of 2013, I have begun to understand the culture and the needs of the people.
One of the main needs of the people especially children and there are a lot of them is clothing. So as you come to one of the Ayahuasca Retreats or even come to work solo with a shaman it is always a good idea to look in your closet and see what old clothes you do not wear anymore or some children you might know that have outgrown their clothing or shoes and if you have a little space or can make a little extra room the small act of kindness of a shirt, a skirt or small pair of shoes will make a difference.
The little act of kindness will go a long way and be greatly appreciated. So when you come to any of the jungle regions in the Amazon basin for Ayahuasca, remember the people and children that will benefit from some clothing you might normally discard and I am sure if you come you will come across or see a child or adult and have the opportunity to give your gift direct to the one in need. As we all know the ripples of kindness make an impression and make this world a better place.
