with the internationally recognized shamanic teacher and healer Itzhak Beery
Description: 

This is a powerful shamanic experiential evening, where you will journey into the dimensions of dreamtime, and altered states. It is a vision quest that challenges your inner warrior, and your sense of space, time and direction, as you step into the mystery of dreamtime.

In a special traditional ceremony, we honor the Guayusa tree spirit with chants, songs and music. As we sip the sacred tea, we go into deep meditative silence in complete darkness, to encounter and communicate with our spirit guides and other spirits, to enable us to bring new visions and awareness into our lives.

The Amazonian Kichwa people of Ecuador believe that the Guayusa plant taught human beings how to dream. It is also called “The Night Watchman” because it sharpens the hunter’s instincts to keep focused energy, while bringing in night vision and awareness. Kichwa families drink gourds of Guayusa around the communal fire from dawn till sunrise as a way to create a tribal bond, and rejuvenate their spirit and bodies. During this time, they share their night’s dreams as the shaman interprets them, so they can plan the day’s course of action. This is also the time when the elders teach the youth about ancestral myths, hunting practices and social ethics.

 

Guayusa, similar to yerba maté, is a medicinal plant that contains caffeine without the rugged edges, and it’s filled with healthy antioxidants. It also has theobromine, found in chocolate, and L-theanine, found in green tea. You will feel fully alive. It is not hallucinating; it simply activates the brain, not allowing it to go deep into theta/delta states (below the level of the conscious mind), which allows you to “see” your visions.
