Journey with one of the Amazon's most beautiful healing plant medicines
Bobinsana is a powerful heart medicine, getting us to drop our awareness out of the mind and anchor it in the heart. A potent medicine for these times, where the human collective is living in so many unknowns. Our hearts are our ultimate guides through anything and everything that arises. When we are in our hearts, we are solidly living in our own essential truth no matter what is happening in the world around us.
We gather as a group to work with this incredible plant medicine. The healing potential is amplified with our collective intentions. As we clear our minds-bodies-spirits with bobinsana, we support each other into powerfully living our soul's unique path.
The journey is focused around a 10 day "soft" dieta - which is a modified version of the Amazonian plant dieta. These dietas are the traditional way in which healers learn the healing properties of the plants - by ingesting decoctions of the plants and communicating with the plant spirits. The "softer" version of this can be done safely from your own home. We eat a simple cleansing diet, limit our interactions with the outside world to our minimal responsibilities, and create energetic space to welcome and invite in the Master Teacher Plant - Bobinsana.
What or who is Bobinsana?
Bobinsana (calliandra angustifolia) grows near streams and rivers in the Amazon. This wild-harvested, ethically-sourced bobinsana is from the San Martin Region of Peru. It's easily recognizable do to it's unusual bright pink flowers. It is known as a Master Teacher Plant by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon. "She" is often referred to as Sirenita Bobinsana, as she brings the feminine energy of the water to open and heal the heart. She is a powerful, yet gentle teacher that supports the awakening and healing of the heart - through processing grief, loss, heartbreak and other emotions. She guides us out of a rigid everyday mental state of awareness into an awareness of emotional and subtle energies. She calms the mind and helps us release over-thinking and stress. She is a great teacher of compassion, love, and empathy.
Physically, she stimulates and reinforces the nervous system, purifies and detoxifies the blood, strengthens body functions - including helping regulate heart pressure, and eases body pain and tiredness. Indigenous tribes use a tincture of bobinsana for treating rheumatism, arthritis, colds, uterine disorders, and edema (water retention). They also grate the bark into baths to increase resistance to sickness (cold and chills).
Disclaimer: Please research and consult your doctor if you have medical conditions or are taking medications. Ideally, during dieta, no medications are consumed. Bobinsana is traditionally used as a contraceptive in Peru. While there is no research to confirm this, those currently seeking to get pregnant are advised against taking this plant. A health consultation may be required before joining this dieta.
Support + Guidance
We meet online as a group to prepare ourselves for the 10-day dieta, and to integrate afterwards. In these meetings, we will be doing meditations, exercises, supporting each other and connecting with bobinsana and the group energy field.

Private 1:1 Sessions: At an additional cost, private guidance, energetic support, and mentoring is available. In these sessions, we go deeper into expanded consciousness to access your energy fields and clear out old emotions and thoughts, find truth and clarity, connect to your soul guidance and to communicate with the plants. We work with an intention, a theme, a challenge or with whatever is arising for you during the dieta.
What people are saying...
"Bobinsana has been a gentle, but strong guide. Very light and grounded. She's helping me integrate all aspects of my being, bridging soul and humanness through the heart. Learning lessons about giving and receiving, right relationship, stewarding creative life force energy. I feel much lighter and clearer on all levels of my being. A reset of my digestive system. A reset of my subtle body. Noticing a huge uptick in joy and energy. Also more clarity on priorities - I feel like I've been pulled out of some of the ruts I'd fallen into and see more choice and thus more alignment with my values."
~ Kate P.
"I learned that I could diet a plant at home with as much depth, commitment, and direct connection to the plant kingdom as strongly and immediately as I could in the jungle. Bobinsana is patient but effective in how she worked with me and my attachments to slowly peel away at them to expose them piece-by-piece and deal with them manageably. It is up to me to decide when to let go of those attachments that cause suffering, stagnation, or illness.... Although this dieta can be done alone, it was nice to do it with others, even remotely, as everyone's energies and intentions are added to the richness of the container and the overall experience."
