Why "Colonia"?

The name "Colonia" speaks to anyone who has been hurt or learned to hurt others.

  • It is an homage to Sarita Colonia, Peru's unofficial Saint of Suffering who works miracles for those who feel marginalized or rejected.

  • It also translates to "colony" in Spanish, referencing colonialism and reminding people of its detrimental effects in the Amazon and elsewhere.

While any community experiences challenging patterns, problems, and pains, Colonia empowers plant medicine's possibilities, inspiring deep healing and lasting change.
