Volunteering and Internships

Takiwasi Center can receive a limited number of volunteers from different nationalities and disciplines. We will give priority exclusively to those people who can offer a specific service to the Center and that respond to our interest and to a particular internal need.

The presence in the Center, in contact with patients with severe drug addiction, requires specific rules of Conduct here indicated. In addition to these general rules you should consider the following:

It is possible to undertake the volunteer service in one of the following areas:

Volunteering does not include the intake of Amazonian medicinal plants at Takiwasi Center. If a person is interested in participating to the process of plants intake, he has to adapt to the registration process of the Retreats/Diets or Seminars that is independent from the enrollment as volunteer. This must be done at the same moment but in a separate form from the request to volunteer. It is not possible to incorporate, during your volunteering at Takiwasi, intake of plants that have not been planned in advance. In case of approval, the modalities and costs of the therapy with plants will be then determined. There is no possibility of exchanging volunteer services with plant therapy.

For more information and to apply for a volunteering, please write to cterapia@takiwasi.com

Takiwasi is currently looking for students and interns to cover the following positions:

People with no previous experience, particularly young people with no training or specific skills necessary to the Center, have little chance of being able to insert themselves in Takiwasi in a useful and profitable way.
