Our ceremonies are held by Don Gino Chaka-Runa and always supported by a team of skilled and experienced western facilitators and assistants that know the work and are ready to handle any situation.

COVID-19 Measures

Since we are going through the Covid-19 Pandemia, there are new measures to be taken to mitigate the risks in regards to this disease and try to provide a safe space for all participants during these unprecedented times.  

 

In that sense, and in order to keep providing our Plant Medicine ceremonies safely, we have developed the following Covid-19 Safety Protocols that outline these measures:

  • All participants will have to sign the Chaka-Runa Covid-19 Consent. 

  • All participants will go through a temperature scan prior to entering the venue. 

  • All participants will be served the brew in individual, personal disposable cups.

  • All participants will have to bring their personal yoga mats, covers, pillows and towels.

  • All participants will be provided with a personal tissue box or toilet paper for ceremonies.

  • All participants will have to bring their own refillable water bottle (no glass).

  • All buckets will be of personal use and will be labeled with the participant’s names.

  • The restrooms will be disinfected by the participants and/or the assistants after every use.

  • Food and drinks will be served using disposable plates, cups and cutlery. 

  • During the ceremonies we will establish a safe distance in between participants.

  • Physical contact among participants should be avoided at all times.

 

Despite all these safety measures, we ask all participants to be honest and responsible, and refrain from joining any of our Programs if there is any sign of carrying the virus. 

 

Before applying, please be aware that in all our Programs we gather as a group, which represents an unavoidable latent risk of being inadvertently exposed and infected by the Covid-19 virus during the experience and/or during your travels.
