Traditional Plant Medicine is a team of people with different backgrounds and cultures who want to protect the shamanic knowledge of the traditional plant medicine of the shipibo culture. They all have a personal interest in plant medicine. Many of them are apprentices, curanderos or working with plant medicine for their personal and spiritual enrichment.
Our purpose is to build a community in Peru. The goal is to give people from all around the world the opportunity to gain awareness of that knowledge. This is one of the ways to protect the wisdom of the jungle. Through this we can have projects which can transcribe the knowledge.
We also want to enable people to be able to experience the healing process and to learn the sageness directly from the plants. We want to give people honest and authentic information about that way of healing in a safe environment.
To enable these intentions we organize tours all over the world. These workshops take place with skilled, experienced shamans who encompass a deep knowledge of medicinal plants and a millennium heritage of the Shipibo-Conibo people of the amazonian jungle.

Virginia Burg(1954) is presently in Peru supervising the growing process of Nete Ibo. She received the information for the project from the plants during the second half of her one year traditional diet under the guidance of Maestro Guillermo Kestsembetsa a Master Shaman in traditional plant medicine and who is a Schipibo Indian.
Through this they founded Luz Cosmico where she later did a two year apprenticeship diet dieting the following plants: toe, marose, pinon blanko, chai, tobacco, aire-sacho cosmico, ayahuma, coca, matiko, aho sacho.
Deeply passionate about plants, Virgina strives to empower people with honest and authentic information in this field and work with ayahuasca. She is also involved in projects which support indigenous people in preserving their territories, culture and knowledge dedicating all of her time, energy and material resources. Virginia strongly emphasizes the necessity for education and transparency in all aspects of plant medicine.
Virginia works as a shaman in Peru as well as during tours abroad, is editing her 40 journals "The First and the Last Apprentice of the Luz Cosmica Experiment" written during the two year diet time and is active in supporting others in creating projects which are beneficial to mankind, the preservation of the planet medicine and saving the knowledge of indegenous people.
Nete Ibo, her latest brainstorm will create a living space for people of all nationalities to live, work and study in the field of spiritual shamanism as well as being a self-sufficient eco village. Remaining true to the plant teachings which incldue a natural order of diversification, people involved in other useful professions who live in a non-exploitation manner are invited to join the project.
