Marcial Isamani

Maestro Marcial Isamani is a Shipibo Conibo elder who shares the indigenous Shipibo healing traditions of dietas with many healing plants and Ayahuasca. The Shipibo have a long history with shamanism. Through many years or even decades of training and intensive plant dietas, master curanderos emerged from the tribe. Working with energy, they are able to cure a wide array of ailments from physical to psycho-spiritual. Using focused energy work and icaros, they access the spirit world during ayahuasca ceremonies to create a harmonized environment to facilitate healing. As a result, patients in their circle are able to gain self awareness, self-actualize, do shadow work, and heal trauma. 

The Shipibo believe that our overall health is the result of a balance of body, mind, and spirit. Each plant they work with contains a specific and unique healing energy, which they channel vibrationally into the healing songs or icaros. These songs act as a conduit to facilitate the plant medicines in their ability to heal.

Ivalisse Rozon

I am a NYS licensed psychotherapist of Afro-Caribbean and Taino ancestry. My graduate education and professional background is in health psychology and clinical mental health counseling, and trauma-informed clinical practices. I work with adults and couples who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, chronic stress, overcoming substance abuse and addictions, chronic medical conditions, relationship difficulties, and challenging life transitions. For over a decade I have been serving as a clinician in behavioral health research at NYU Grossman School of Medicine working with patients from Veterans Affairs hospitals, Bellevue Hospital Center, and NYU Langone Medical Center.

My approach is integrative and collaborative with an emphasis on cultural competence. I draw from insight-oriented interpersonal therapy, client-centered, CBT, MI, and attachment-based therapy. I also facilitated 1:1 preparation and integration for entheogenic medicine journeys. I personalize my work to best suit each individual’s needs. I incorporate principles that foster ancestral healing, self-awareness, resilience, mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and self-efficacy.
The right therapeutic relationship can be a powerful experience. It provides people with opportunities for gaining self-knowledge that can lead to living a more reasonable life, with a renewed sense of freedom and fulfillment.
