Who We Are



Founder & Facilitator

Arron has been working with ancient medicines since 2014 and running retreats throughout Europe since 2017, before founding Dragonfly in 2019. As well as completing a three-year training cycle in Europe, and leaving behind many unhealthy mechanisms in his own life, 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 observe inner self-defeating patterns and internal prisons, to move into a new space of liberation in life.



After a career in environmental NGOs, Vanessa’s journey brought her to ancestral medicines in 2015 and she has been coordinating and facilitating healing retreats since 2018. An experienced medicine facilitator and yoga and meditation teacher, she enjoys bringing together healing modalities and philosophies in an open way of exploring healing for each soul who is present. Her approach is anchored in unconditionality, the return to trust and the movement from the head to the heart. Vanessa is fully bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish

He is an experienced ancestral medicine guide, having spent almost every weekend for over four years hosting, facilitating, and supporting people on their personal exploration of "self" and "other." 

Fernando hosts online learning as well as individual sessions to guide, support, and accompany our participants on their developmental journey.


Dr. Mauricio Albanes

Doctor & Medical Support

Mauricio is a medical doctor and 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 medical advice and supervision to our team to ensure that we work in the safest way possible.



After spending over 10 years travelling the world, Jade now works in childcare and as a natural medicine facilitator. Jade has been working with a range of meditation techniques and holistic healing methodologies for a number of years, and shares these during our retreats
