Taita Jhon Alexander Castaño, Traditional Shamanic Doctor on a mission to keep the traditions of our ancestors alive.
He is passionate about spreading the teachings of Yagé (Ayahuasca), which he received while living and studying for more than 20 years with elders from the Amazon, to the four corners of the world to help us re-establish a connection with the origins of this sacred medicine and help us unite as one global family in our true essence of love and harmony with all beings.
Taita Jhon Alexander Castaño will lead us through a journey of deep spiritual healing with Yagé, inspired by the teachings of our Ancestors and Elders.
In the process, we will be able to gain a higher perspective on our own personal challenges and the challenges we face as a collective.
He intentionally structures his Yagé ceremonies around the natural order of things: The Maloka (sacred ceremonial space) is in a natural setting immersed by the sounds of nature to intentionally reconnect our spirit to “Pachamamita” so we may know and honor our original mother.
Sacred ceremonies will be intimate (up to 20 people) so Taita Alex can effectively and intuitively tailor the ceremony around your personal healing.
He will guide us and the spirits of the ceremony through a journey of collective rebirth and awakening.
Meditation Teacher, Integration Coach, Medicine Facilitator
Zach’s path to becoming an Integration Coach, Meditation Teacher and Retreat Facilitator started in 2015 when he decided to live in Brazil for six months.
This experience awakened Zach to his spiritual path, and started to show him how to live a more soulful, abundant life. Since then he has devoted himself to the liberation of suffering of all beings by honoring the voice of his heart, howling his truth, and sharpening his mind, body, and spirit so that he can manifest an abundance of love, peace, and clarity in the world.
His main holistic healing tools involve a combination of Mindfulness Meditation, Breathe work, Creative Expression, Ayahuasca, and other Ancestral Medicines. These are the practices that have been essential to healing himself and his family.
Over the past year, he has worked intensively with Taita Jhon Alexander Castaño to bring more healing and liberation to our modern society by helping organize retreats and assisting with translation in the process.
Zach is currently on a mission to empower others to unlock their intuitive superpowers and facilitate inner healing journeys with the help of mindfulness meditation techniques combined with the sacred indigenous plant medicine traditions of South America.

Medicine Woman (San Pedro, Magic Mushrooms, Changa)
"On a cliff-side overlooking the Costa Rican Ocean, is where I realized my dharma, which is natural healing through methods such as yoga, plant medicines, and Ayurveda. It was in Costa Rica, 2012, where I completed my first 200 hr Teacher Training. I returned to my hometown of Anacortes, WA, to live amongst the evergreen trees, where I currently reside. I love to travel to new places, but find myself always returning to this beautiful island. Nature is home to me, and where I find balance and inspiration.
A couple years later one of my friends from the YTT in Costa Rica, introduced me to a plant medicine called “Ayahuasca” also known as, vine of the soul. It did not take any convincing before I was taking a five hour car ride across the border, into the middle of nowhere, Canada. Shortly after I was flying to Iquitos, Peru, the mecca of this mysterious plant mixture. I drank with and worked with renowned Shaman from the Shipibo traditions, however, not all of them were working for the light. During my time there, I knew that this path would become a life long path for me, and that I would share this powerful medicine with others. It was in the jungles of Peru, where the concept of House of Dreams was born.
I travelled to Peru for a second time, spending months at a time in the jungle. On my third trip I studied under Curandera Estella, and then after visiting Machu Picchu, started an apprenticeship under Lesley working with the heart opening Medicine, San Pedro. In 2019, my dream to open a Sacred Medicine Church manifested and we are here to serve you. I hope to lead ceremonies that inspire people to live the best, healthiest, and truest expressions of themselves."
