My party is going overland from Mexico to Costa Rica next April. One of my goals is to find legitimate, reputable healers, herbalists, bush doctors, shamen or medicine people to contact, talk to and possibly study with on a future trip.
I am interested in and will eagerly participate in pre-packaged tourist oriented seminars, especially if they benefit native or local people. But I am also looking for something a little deeper, a little more serious, a little more long term.
I emphasize that on this trip I just want to meet people and make contacts in order to scope out possibilities for an internship or apprenticeship type experience in the future.
Any ideas, suggestion or experiences people want to share? I welcome your comments. Anyone visited or used the services of any kind of traditional healer in Central America? Were you satisfied? Were you cured? Again, I warmly welcome and appreciate any comments you are willing to share. Thank you.
