Ed and Tania Tuttle have facilitated Shamanic adventures to the Ecuadorian Andes and Amazon rain forest since 1997. Guests are introduced to indigenous healing techniques through first hand experiences with the plant medicines. Groups meet with highly respected Shamans and participate in sacred ceremonies which promote transformational events of self-awareness and personal growth. Before returning home travelers may integrate their learning experiences by enjoying the beautiful Samai Center spa and retreat located on the lovely Pacific coast of Ecuador.
Ed and Tania's purpose is to become a bridge between the worlds of the South American Condor and the North American Eagle. Through Sacred Journeys, Americans are introduced to Amazonian and Andean healing techniques, and experiences with the Amazonian plant teachers. Also they give presentations and workshops on their efforts to continue a healing of the North American heart.
In 2002, they created the "Samai Holistic Center", a place dedicated to support the spiritual, emotional, and physical healing of the earth and all her living creatures. This center is located on the Pacific Coast of Ecuador, in the town of San Jose. Here, guests can enjoy sacred sites, shamanic healing, walking and hiking activities, quiet beaches, horseback riding and magnificent views in earth honoring accommodations.
