– Marosa – a plant to rebuild self-esteem and heal a broken heart –
Those who have suffered experiences of abuse, abandonment or other trauma, particularly in childhood, often develop low self-esteem and associated unhealthy patterns in adulthood around seeking love and a sense of belonging in the world. Unfulfilling habits like looking for love in the wrong places, giving too much (or too little) in relationships, or allowing disrespect or dishonourable treatment from others, and many other ways that can lead a person to feel less worthy of love, more uncertain of self, and ultimately even more starved of a sense of belonging in the world.

Marosa is a healing plant that can help a person embark on this spiritual and emotional journey into the self in a deeply experiential way. Well known amongst Amazonian Shipibo healers for her power to heal a broken-heart and inspire a renewed appreciation and love of self and the beauty that resides within, Marosa is one of the master plant spirits revered for her watery feminine quality and the great healing power she embodies. Marosa is chosen by many Shipiba maestras as a key spiritual ally in their healing work. There is even an ancient melody recognized as the sacred Icaro or song of Marosa, the voice of her spirit.
This video presents a short preview of Shipiba Maestra Lucinda Mahua sharing the ancient Icaro melody of the master spirit of Marosa:
“Forests are superorganisms… [that] communicate by olfactory, visual and electrical signals…
Every tree is valuable to the community… Even sick individuals are supported and nourished until they recover."
The Hidden Life of Trees
“There are webs of complexity that tie everything together, and they are more numerous than the stars in the night sky.
In wild systems intelligence, free will, innovation, sophisticated adaptation are inherent."
