Work Exchange Program

The Hummingbird Center offers a Work Exchange program for people who  have an interest in working for a month with the plant medicines.  We are particularly interested in those with training in  services which may be of interest to clients, such as massage, yoga, astrology, etc.

Duties are similar to those in the hospitality industry, primarily centered on customer service and ensuring our clients have a clean, comfortable environment in which to focus on their healing. In addition there will be opportunity for you to offer your particular  skills to the clients if you desire.



Duties and Responsibilities

The work schedule is 5 hours per day, six days per week. Specific duties are detailed in a document you can download at the bottom of this page. They include, but are not limited to:

Cost of the Work Exchange Program

The cost of the work exchange program is $600 per month, plus 100 soles (Peruvian currency) for each ayahuasca and Huachuma ceremony attended.

Due to space limitations and the discounted price, work exchange places are limited to 4 per month. The program is for 1 month, with the option to stay a bit longer if space is available. Payment must be made at least 4 weeks in advance. See the application form for a bit more info on this.  Payment details may be found on our Make a Reservation page
