Friends of the Jungle

Please meet amazing humans that inspire us on the daily

Special Humans Doing Special Work

Our goal at RHC is a simple one – to share the vine’s blissful gifts with others and to spread the love that the medicine has instilled in us. We return what the abundant, nurturing jungle has given to us through love and by doing everything we can to protect the people, fauna, and flora that have thrived in the Amazon for eons.

The following beautiful souls are all doing their part, in their own way, to help contribute to that goal. Many are regular visitors of our healing center, and all are dear friends.

Please, explore their offerings, websites and profiles to get to know them. May you find synergies between yourself and them as you continue to shine your love out in the world.

Shamanic Practicioners

Shamans come in many forms, but all find their inspiration and guidance from trusting their instinct and following their heart. Coupled with training in the esoteric arts from Reiki to soul retrieval, these loving souls are continuing traditions spanning thousands of years.

Bruce Manaka

Bruce Manaka, author of The Alchemy of Bliss and founder of the Secret Breath, Sacred Sound program of vocal resonance spent 19 years in a monastery, living a life of meditation and contemplation. In his therapeutic sound work, he teaches an ancient form of vocalizing that helps individuals viscerally experience the ecstatic and sublime realms within.

“The experience of Bliss is like liquid light flowing through the energetic field of the body. It is nectar-like and can be moved/pushed/pulled through the spine and the rest of the body.” (From “The Alchemy of Bliss – Ecstatic Awakenings With Kundalini” — Bruce Manaka)
