Bufo Medicine Facilitator

Of Irish Celtic origin, Ciaran hails from a lineage of diviners and souls who harness the power of the hands. Growing up in Ireland, Ciaran experienced a culture that had lost touch with its true essence, which left him feeling out of harmony and at odds with the prevailing western mentality.


In those formative years, conformity seemed safer, leading to a silence that permeated his world, repeating the cycles of his community's past. However, everything changed when the call to the divine mother, master teacher plant medicine, Ayahuasca, beckoned Ciaran.


This transformative journey began to cleanse him of attachments and conditioning that had been deeply ingrained since childhood. Ayahuasca revealed the divine power within and the boundless nature of unconditional love. It ignited a profound internal shift, setting the stage for a complete life transformation.


Through numerous Ayahuasca sessions, visions emerged, guiding Ciaran to work with the frog medicine, Kambo, and shortly thereafter he completed his Kambo facilitator training earning certification from the International Association of Kambo Practitioners.

Ciaran further experienced a powerful calling to work with Bufo Alvarius, the sacred medicine of the toad. Drawn to Mexico, the home of this healing spirit, Ciaran sought guidance from an esteemed teacher to deepen his connection with this medicine.
