Empower yourself to safely deepen your relationship with Kambo

Kambo Self-Administration Course

Take Your Healing Back into Your Own Hands

While the importance of working with a trained practitioner is absolutely crucial for initiating a relationship with Kambo, eventually some may wish to create more autonomy and empower themselves with the skills to safely self-administer. Self-administration is a beautiful way to deepen one’s relationship with Kambo. It is also a practical solution for those who are supporting chronic health conditions, have limited funds and/or may not have convenient access to a practitioner near them. 

We believe that most people are more than capable of self-serving Kambo safely with the proper training and guidance. The truth is, many people are already self-administering Kambo with no training whatsoever and no knowledge of the source of their supply. This is very concerning as it jeopardizes their safety, as well as the accessibility of Kambo.

As an organization passionate about harm-reduction, instead of trying to force people to travel and receive proper training for self-administration, we decided to bring the education straight to your home through an easy-to-access online platform. This course will give an individual everything they need to understand how to self-administer Kambo properly in a safe and beneficial way.
