Dr. Rocio Alarcón
Dr. Rocio Alarcón was born in Ecuador at the foot of Pichincha volcano, in the shadow of the towering Andes mountains. She is a shamanic practitioner and teacher — her work focuses specifically on shamanic healing ceremonies in Ecuador. This sacred knowledge that she now teaches was reverently passed down by her mother and grandmother, who preserved the ancient teachings that were passed on to them by their matralineal ancestors.
Rocio has spent over 40 years working with various ethnic groups in the tropical rain forest and Andes mountains of Ecuador, as well as in Basque Country, Spain. Her interests include researching ethnobotany and biodiversity, plus teaching sacred practices using master plants. She offers workshops at different organizations worldwide. Rocio was awarded a Cosmic Sister’s Women of the Psychedelic Renaissance grant to present at Spirit Plant Medicine Conference in 2020.
