The Matsés Acate-Kambo Academy offers much more than just training or skill development – it also provides an opportunity for life empowerment and spiritual  awakening. Our Academy trainees will learn to become more authentic to their true  self, have more integrity, and evolve into better people.


Learning Kambo on your own or through westernized schools can only take you so far.  There is more to Kambo than learning specific protocols. Many practitioners are  “certified” but don’t spend enough personal time afterwards developing a deep  relationship with the medicine. They are often left without support and the majority of  Kambo practitioners have never been to the tribes or held a frog in their hands.



Our Academy is the right fit for people who want to learn from some of the most  experienced practitioners in the world, develop a deep relationship with the medicine,  have long-lasting support, and after that, go to the source, experience frog, tribes, true  initiation, shamanic training, and plant doctoring.   

As you go through your training journey, you will not only learn how to serve Kambo,  you will become a doctor of many plants and learn how to use them – alongside  Kambo – to heal many different ailments and learn how to navigate contraindications.  You will learn how to properly clear the energy of yourself and others, so you can do  this work effectively and long-term.  

We aim to create a new class of healers that have access to a deep connection to  themselves, this work, and the traditions that have carried them from the beginning.



The intention is not to see how much Kambo you can take like a boot-camp style program, which is not the way any tribe uses Kambo, but more to give you the tools to continue with confidence on your own. You will have the confidence to serve it to yourself alone. You can build a deeper relationship over time with Kambo.  You will build a deeper relationship over time with a very engaged and ongoing support group. You will be taught various contraindications, as well as how to navigate supposed contradictions you may find on the internet. We will be fusing western safety protocols with a traditional foundation.



We are not interested in working with people who are only wanting personal gain. We  are looking for professional, respectful people wanting to do the work required to  improve their own lives and the lives of others.

We believe that Kambo is a life path – not something you can learn in just a few weeks  or acquire a certificate for. Kambo is from the jungle and the tribes that work with it  don’t certify people. Rather, there is a process of initiation for those that wish to fully  embody the spirit of Kambo and receive a direct blessing from the tribes who carry it. 

Those interested in our full program should not plan to get a certification within a week  or two. We encourage our trainees to build a true relationship with this medicine, so  they can serve it with integrity and love, not merely for money, personal gain, or ego.


As a result of the bond, trust, shared goals and collaboration that we have developed with the tribes, you can trust that what you receive through our Academy will be given back to this ancient and endangered community. You will learn directly from the tribes and will be supporting them financially. Empowering and supporting the tribes is our priority, so they can continue to protect the Amazon along with these sacred medicines.
