The first was in 2008, when a 52-year-old Brazilian man died at a private kambo ceremony. He had taken kambo several times before over the course of the previous few months, to treat a health condition. This time, he went to the bathroom unobserved, and was later found not breathing on the floor, and could not be resuscitated.

Kambo ceremonies are usually social events which promote bonding, and the shared trauma will help the group support each other as individuals work through their emotions. It can be a good idea to discuss your emotions in a group both before and after the ceremony.
