Who We Are
Founder & Facilitator
Arron has eight years' experience working with ancient medicines, running retreats all around Europe before founding Dragonfly in 2019. As well as completing a three-year apprenticeship in Europe, he has spent time in the Colombian Amazon and has been initiated into the Bwiti, the Gabonese tradition centred around the use of Iboga.
Arron supports each person who attends our retreats to move beyond the limitations of the mind and into the infinite potential of the heart.
Walking in the only possible direction... The Heart one.
Bruno had his first transformative experience as a teenager in South America and was always connected to the ancient wisdom of nature.
He has been accompanying people for more than 10 years in the wonderful task of inspiring them to open their eyes to see their gifts and virtues. This is where his heart expresses itself.
He is an expert in the art of listening. When you speak, he can catch the truth of what your being is saying behind the words.
Dr. Mauricio Albanes
Mauricio is a medical doctor and heart surgeon, located in Spain. Following a life-changing near death experience some years ago, Mauricio decided to change course and has spent the last four years studying entheogenic substances and kambo in great detail.
He provides expert medical advice and supervision to our team for every individual who attends our retreats to ensure that we work in the safest way possible.
