There is a new way of traveling, one dedicated entirely to spiritual awakening; to find yourself . And Mexico is full of beautiful places that not only offer the opportunity to explore this country, but also the possibility of exploring our interior Kambo practitioner training.
On these trips, people seek a practice of well-being, not only through contact with nature, but through transformative experiences.
Regarding wellness tourism, it is worth taking into consideration the words of specialist on the subject Andrea De La Holz for whom a journey of these characteristics must include: “lifestyle elements, physical, mental and spiritual elements that allow us to relate better with the environment, with others and of course with ourselves.”
