Release and Awaken: A Sacred Medicine Journey
Jaunuary 29 - February 6, 2015
In less than 2 weeks, I’ll be in the jungle again! I'm heading down early to support another retreat and do some solo time learning about medicinal plants in the Amazon. Then I’ll be headed to Pucallpa to co-facilitate this retreat - Release and Awaken
- with dear friend Arturo Munoz. (Most of you already received an email about this retreat. If you didn't, please check out the website.) I’m so excited to be supporting those of you called to work with this sacred medicine!
I want to introduce you to the curanderos, who are the indigenous Shipibo healers, that I've worked with many times. They have been traditionally trained in the healing properties of ayahuasca. Their training includes years of apprenticeship and strict plant diets to learn how to heal people from disease and to navigate various realms of consciousness. They preside over the ceremonies, using their ancestral healing songs, icaros, to direct the path of healing. When you hear their magical icaros during ceremony, you will understand their power and ancient wisdom!
We will be working with husband and wife, Agosto and Ercilia, and Luzmila.
