Sacred Mythic Journeys is an open-minded, open-hearted, up-to-date, and creatively fresh project that was first born and initiated back in early 2008. Sacred Mythic Journeys has now evolved into the dream to create a unique conscious selection of fully guided, fully focussed and fully intensive World travel adventure tours, that all encourage us to step back, break the mold, and live life to our most fullest potential.

Happiness is a choice.

Our 14 day and 28 day projects all bridge the gap between the sacred tools, traditions and ancient wisdom teachings of our ancestors, with their balanced and effective application and integration into the new modern world paradigm and reality that we now live together in today.

Re-learn and Re-discover now the forgotten secrets to Being your dreams, Connecting with the unconditional love that is already within yourself, Choosing real happiness, Manifesting lasting wealth, and Finding personal success in the world. 

We have the power to be happy whenever we choose to be. Our happiness does not rely on anything external, it is an internal state of mind and conscious decision.

Following the 2012 landmark shift in consciousness, it has now come the time in our own humanity’s evolution that we learn to take responsibility for our own happiness, instead of depending upon someone or something else on the outside to do it for us. 

We are now ready to become the new ‘homo-luminous’ beings we were born to be. Where by focusing the mind and opening the heart with trust, we are not only able to control our actions, but our own emotions and thoughts as well. 

–So if you currently find yourself feeling lost, confused or overwhelmed with life not knowing what really to do next or what to focus your energies on.

– if you no longer feel happy to live an ordinary, normal life, however comfortable and easy you may feel it has become for you to stay there.

– if you feel you need a big change of some kind in the way you are living your life but are unsure exactly what that should be.

– if you have the curiosity to want to dive head first all the way into your subconscious mind, to heal, remove, release and confront old blockages, past wounds and/or negative repetitive cycles you have noticed are still there somewhere, happening over and over and over again.

– if you have recently made the conscious decision to face head on the fears and anxieties that are preventing you from connecting with your magical, miraculous and mythical self.

– if you are feeling restricted and trapped in some way from living life to your full potential, but are unsure exactly what is holding you back

– or if you are in need of and searching for a new vision for the next stage of your life journey.

Then look no further, one of our Six Intensive Sacred Mythic Journeys in North, Central, or South America could be just the next big adventure that you have been waiting for, or more importantly than that, has been waiting for you!

Heart Energy Medicine Workshops, Foundational AcroYoga and Shamanic ‘Plant Teacher’ Ceremonies’ Together.

All of our Sacred Mythic Journeys that include Heart Energy Medicine workshops and Shamanic Plant Teacher Ceremonies, have all been personally heart crafted and hand created to enable you to both unground yourself and connect deeply with the spirits of the plant medicines themselves; whilst remembering the importance for balance and harmony at the same time in staying connected and fully grounded in your body and with yourself, beyond that which you even thought possible!

The purpose of our Sacred Mythic Journeys are to help strengthen, clear and focus your mind; open and expand your heart; and provide you with the optimal conditions holding the greatest potential for internal growth and transformation, which comes naturally to these types of life-changing powerful internal arts tools and shamanic master plant medicine ceremonies, when approached with intention, respect and consciousness. 

Heart Energy Medicine and the Shamanic Arts go perfectly hand-in-hand, especially now in the new modern world that we live in today. Symbiotically they work extremely well to bring together the two opposing polarities of everyday duality, the physical and the non-physical, aligning as one single central pillar of unity and oneness. This reality is naturally present within us all, once we remember how to connect to it again naturally on our own.

By combining together a selection of powerful internal and external healing arts tools from different parts of the world (e.g. the Yogic cultures of a more eastern origin, with the more Shamanic cultures of a predominantly more western origin), you will be ready and well prepared physically, mentally, emotionally and soulfully for the deeply cleansing and purifying ceremonies that you will be led to participate in. At the same time the Sacred Mythic Journeys provide the unique opportunity of interacting with remote traditional indigenous families, to experience their natural way of life, ancient culture, heart-warming hospitality, and deep connection with nature.

All of the Sacred Mythic Journeys will take place in very authentic and simple down-to-earth settings, amidst the wild and beautiful rainforests, mountains, rivers, lakes, oceans, and deserts of this marvelous and miraculous world we live in. Where we will we meet the tradition of it’s people in its original raw form, preparing your body and mind with a strict diet and traditional cleansing process, allowing us to connect strongly with the magical medicinal plants of Mother Nature in the most positive and effective way as is possible.

Our intensive Sacred Mythic Journeys give you the most amazing chance to gain direct experience with some very sacred high-energy parts of the world, and their powerful healing energies. You will from start to finish be under the assistance of a professional team of well-respected and experienced traditional and modern day healers (‘shamans’).  Together we will help guide you, to guide yourself, through an inner cosmic journey of self-realization, self-transformation, self-discovery and self-awakening.

Experience our cutting edge Self-healing and Self-empowerment 2 day Heart Energy Medicine Workshop Intensive – planting and watering the seeds of unconditional love in our hearts for the rest of our lives … and beyond!

The fine-tuned and soul cooked to perfection (but ever evolving!) 2 day Heart Energy Medicine workshop intensives are now ready for the World to explore, discover and experience; to be used as a miracle tool and cure all, to allow us to Rebirth ourselves and Dream ourselves back into Being.

The workshops and intensive courses are a psychological break-through, fully up-to-date, magical, mythical, and miracle-making alternative for the new modern man and woman, who are now making the conscious choices to finally step forwards and take healing and empowerment into their own hands, rather than putting the responsibility into somebody or something else’s.

Created to stimulate and expose the modern day shaman, healer, teacher and artist in all of us, so we feel ready to step into the full power and potential of our own destiny, as the homo luminous beings we are and have now already become. Beings that are now able to not only to control our actions, but our thoughts and emotions as well.

The workshops blend together the core of transcendental rebirthing breathwork, acroyoga, free artistic expression, voice activation, transpersonal psychology, integrated life meditation, ecstatic dance, sacred sound healing, empathic communication and shamanic energy work, to give birth to a unique, heart explosive, highly transformative and life-changing mind altering experience – fully ‘natural’, without us needing or using anything external to activate the process of self-healing for us.

All you need to bring to the workshops is your own unique voice, and your child-born freedom of artistic creative self-expression, movement and intuition, which allows you to listen and trust your own inner guidance and gut instincts.  Nature will do the rest.

For we need nothing external to make us happy or to heal us from the outside, as we already have everything we could ever want and need on the inside once we can find it and connect with it again, and realize we had it there with us all along. Which essentially involves spontaneously acting and reacting with complete trust to our own inner voice without following the mind’s urge to resist us and hold us back.

Heart Energy Medicine guides you to guide yourself to bring out your own personal power in You again, the power that had always been yours to take and use, and had in fact never ever left you! For you already have everything you need. Stepping into your power as a woman or as a man of spirit, of fully intertwined and interconnected light and dark energies, of day light and shadow, and infinite potential to create and dream, has now never been easier or so accessible in such a short amount of time!

By unlocking the secrets of this new-world technology and unique approach to healing and transformation of the natural Heart Energy Medicine in yourself, miracle healings and self-empowerment breakthroughs are, and simply can be instantaneous! So what are you waiting for? Enlightenment is yours and always has been, in fact it’s guaranteed, once you find your own way to just reach out and grab it from your own Self.

AcroYoga is a human art that combines acrobatic concepts with a yogic consciousness. It has been described as a fusion of movement, acrobatics, dance and yoga. It is an amazing, playful, and fun tool providing the perfect opportunity for people to practice important symbolic life qualities: like trust, human connection and touch, focus, creativity, a healthy exchange of giving and receiving and balance in both the the body and the mind.

We integrate and teach foundational AcroYoga, Montreal style, which is a very unique always evolving creative expressive technique – this is why we love it so much! AcroYoga Montreal’s philosophy is: “The evolution of AcroYoga beyond its traditional flow and movement through the fusion of the form with other movement arts and techniques (i.e. dance, break dancing, and martial arts) to create a contemporary aesthetic that knows no boundaries or forms yet represents the body in motion in all its expressions. Just like break dancing, AcroYoga will become an attitude and lifestyle – not just steps or forms, but an ever changing chameleon that adapts to the practitioner and their environment. Long live AcroYoga!”

14 DAY SACRED MYTHIC JOURNEY, THE AMAZON RAINFOREST, PERU

“Ayahuasca the Vine of the Soul.”

Transform and heal yourself deep in the Amazon Jungle with our intensive 14 day Sacred Mythic Journey in Peru, set amongst the ancestral heartland backdrop of the ‘Shipibo-Conibo tribes,’ who have used traditional ceremony, ‘Icaros’ (sacred chants), and the master plant teacher of Ayahuasca as psychic tools and portholes to access the human soul, and beyond, for millennia. Heal your body and mind and grow the light within you. Treat and cleanse yourself. Elevate your soul and learn to exercise true choice over your life. To become the director of your world instead of a spectator. An opportunity to remember and rediscover your inherent power and light. Every ceremony steps up on the previous one, in an ever deeper dive into the soul, an ever higher flight into greatness and fulfillment of your forgotten mythical potential and the power of your intention.

“The Shipibo-Conibo Healing Songs.”

The Shipibo-Conibo of the Amazonian rainforest live in the 21st century while still keeping one foot in the past spanning back millennia. Many of their shamanic traditions are still practiced such as ‘Ayahuasca’ healing ceremonies. ‘Icaros’ (Sacred chants) have inspired artistic tradition and decorative designs found in their clothing, pottery, tools and textiles.

“The Voice of the Feminine Calls.”

The Shipibo-Conibo hold the Ayahuasca ceremony as art, so, although there are male Curanderos, it is the women that most often are chosen for the ancestral Icaros to be transmitted to and they are the main performers at the ceremonies, transmitting through their magical ceremonial songs their nurturing feminine mother energy, their souls and hearts.

“A Bridge with the Spirit World.”

Ayahuasca is known in the Amazon jungle as “la purga” (the purge) and is essentially a medicine that cleanses one on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The process is one of healing and letting go of what no longer is helpful for our journey on this planet and the resulting clarity that allows us to see what is the next step ahead for us. The energy of the medicine supports this process and helps one reconnect with one’s deepest truths and sense of purpose.

“The Serpent Goddess.”

Ayahuasca is a very powerful medicine, and when approached with respect and a pure intention, is a most wonderful healer and teacher. The jungle is the perfect environment to drink the Ayahuasca brew because you are close to where the plants live, and therefore where there is the greatest level of support, nurturing, and absorption ability of all the plants and earth. The jungle even without the ceremony, is an ideal place to shed heavy energies the way the anaconda sheds it’s skin, and to receive the fundamental healing properties of “Nature’s pharmacy” on every level of your being.

14 DAY SACRED MYTHIC JOURNEY, THE ANDES MOUNTAINS, PERU AND BOLIVIA 

“Huachuma – Heart Medicine for the People.”

This intense 14 day Sacred Mythic Journey begins on the Islands of the Sun and the Moon on Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, which represent two of the greatest natural and cultural monuments of South America, and eventually guides you onto the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu and The Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru. The Sacred Valley encompasses the heartland of the Inca Empire and was formed by the Urubamba River, also known as Wilcamayu which in Quechua (the still spoken language of the Inca Empire), means ‘the Sacred River’. It is fed by numerous rivers which descend through adjoining valleys and gorges of the Andes mountains, and contains numerous archaeological remains and villages. The natural beauty of these places is impossible to describe; you simply have to visit them to appreciate it. 

“The Homeland of the Inkas.”

The Andes run the entire length of South America, from the humid tropics of the Caribbean to the ice fields of Patagonia. The longest north-south mountain range in the world, the Andes encompass a tremendous range of ecosystems and are home to a rich variety of plant and animal species and human communities.

“The Quechua Indians of the High Andes.”

The Quechua Indians of the central Andes are the direct descendants of the Incas. The Inca Empire, which existed for a century before the arrival of the Spanish, was a highly developed civilization. The Inca Empire stretched from parts of present-day Colombia in the north, southward into Chile. The Incas had an impressive governing structure.

“Stepping Into a Different World.”

The elders spoke of the transformation of the human species that has already begun and is well under way. It is called the Pachakuti – the world turning upside down. The current Pachakuti that the Western world is experiencing now is the returning to a way of living that is right side up so to speak. The elder shamans say that Homo Sapiens are becoming extinct, and that we are becoming Homo Luminous; and that we are the ones we have been waiting for. 

“Doorways Between Worlds.”

The Inka believe a new day is dawning. The doorways between the worlds are opening holes in time that we can step through and beyond, where our human capabilities propel us to heights never experienced before. We have the knowledge to craft new physical bodies that age differently, heal differently, and that possibly may never die. These bodies offer us the opportunity to step beyond the world we have known, where we can once again embark on our journey, returning to the stars.

“The Q’ero and the Prophecies.”

According to legend, when the Q’ero first appeared at the feast of the Collor Riti wearing ponchos emblazoned with the royal emblem of the Sun, an aisle parted in the thousands gathered and the elders of the medicine people welcomed them, saying, “We have been waiting for you for five hundred years.” They are the Inkas, the last original descendants of the Children of the Sun, and they have returned to deliver the prophecy entrusted to them foretelling of the End of Time. But they have also been the keepers of a body of processes, of rites of passage that usher in who we are becoming as a people and a planet.

“An Oasis for Healing.”

San Pedro is a cactus that grows all along the Andes (and now North America as well). The earliest recorded shamanic use of this plant available to us dates back over 3000 years, and there are reasons to believe its use is much more ancient than that – both the physical and psychic fabric of this part of the world is informed with the energy of this plant teacher. San Pedro is used for healing as well as mystical purposes. Its energy opens up one’s channels, allowing one to connect deeply with oneself as well as the entire cosmos and other spiritual dimensions.

“Myth and Mystery Intertwined.”

According to Incan lore, after a great flood, the god Viracocha arose from Lake Titicaca to create the world. He commanded the sun (Inti), moon (Mama Kilya) and stars to rise, then went to Tiahuanaco to create the first human beings, Mallku Kapac and Mama Ocllo. These first humans, the “Inca Adam and Eve,” were formed from stone and brought to life by Viracocha, who commanded them to go out and populate the world. Thus Lake Titicaca is the birthplace of the Incas, whose spirits return to their origin in the lake upon death.

14 DAY SACRED MYTHIC JOURNEY, LAKE ATITLAN, GUATEMALA

“Chocolate – A Natural Medicine for the Soul.”

This 14 day Sacred Mythic Journey gives you the opportunity to participate in several Mayan Cacao (chocolate) healing ceremonies, a traditional Mayan fire ceremony, and a Mayan calendar workshop with local Mayan elders and ‘Tatas’ (spiritual healers). The Mayans are considered the most culturally advanced among the Mesoamerican civilizations. They also were the first true chocolate aficionados, treasuring cacao as a restorative, mood-enhancing cure-all. It became an integral part of their society, used in ceremonies, given as gifts and incorporated into their mythologies. Raw Cacao is a forgotten medicine plant – an ancient teacher and facilitator that assists you in your journey, whatever that may be. Raw cacao makes focus, connection and expansion more easily accessible; it also opens the Heart Chakra.

“The Heart of the Mayan World.”

Guatemala is, unquestionably, the heart of the Mayan world.  Within its territory, the Mayans’ greatest cities flourished, centres of commerce and culture for the Meso-American region.  The greatest of these is Tikal, but there are hundreds of other archaeological sites that scientists have not even begun to study.  Guatemala City itself is built on the ruins of an impressive Mayan city known as Kaminaljuyu. 

“Food for the Gods.”

The word “cacao” possibly originated with the pre-Mayan Olmec peoples. The words “ka-ka-wa” were deciphered from an ancient Mayan drinking vessel. This is not to be confused with modern processed “chocolate”, which has been heated, sweetened and otherwise modified, removing many of cacao’s natural beneficial effects. The importance of the cacao tree and its fruit to the people of Central and South America is found in their myths and legends. The Mayans inherited their knowledge of cacao from the Olmecs and became the first to use cacao as ‘currency’.  

“The Place Where the Rainbow Gets its Colors.”

This Delicious Sacred Elixir is consumed in sacred space and with solemn ceremony, followed by meditation, chanting, breath work, dancing, and with live music … all specially designed to facilitate deep Shamanic journeying, bringing insights, answers to questions, connection to your true divine nature and bliss. 

“The Cacao World Tree.”

Chocolate plays a part in Mayan traditions. The Mayans’ sacred book, Popul Vuh, contains their story of the creation, and instead of an apple tree, there’s a cacao tree.  In this myth, immortal ball-playing twins are beheaded by the gods of death. One has his head hung on a cacao tree. The magical head manages to mate with a woman who becomes the mother of twin gods. These two defeat the gods of death and then end up in the sky as the sun and the moon.

14 DAY SACRED MYTHIC JOURNEY, SIERRA MADRE MOUNTAINS, MEXICO 

“Flowers in the Desert.”

During this 14 day Sacred Mythic Journey we will give you the unique chance to visit and live amongst the Huicholes, a fascinating culture in the magic heart of their powerful indigenous soul homeland. On top of this we will provide you with the amazing opportunity to experience for yourself a part of the same sacred 400-mile pilgrimage journey from the waters of the Pacific Ocean in the west, to the Wixárika symbolized birthplace of the Sun in the north-east of the country. This is the same sacred route that has been travelled by the Wixárika people, by both the parents and the children themselves, every year for the last few hundred decades during their long quest to the desert in the east, to gather their sacred ‘peyote’ teacher plant medicine (flowers in the desert) and bring it home back to their villages in the west!

“The Land is Alive.”

In the rugged Sierra Madre mountains of north-western Mexico, the Huichol or Wixáritari people, who it is believed are descendents of the Aztecs, are still living as they have done for thousands of generations, in communion with nature and with each other. Never conquered by outsiders, their sacred traditions and connection to the Gods have remained intact. They are one of only a handful of existing indigenous cultures with such a continuous heritage. It is estimated that there are approximately 15,000 members of this last-known tribe of indigenous Indians in the Americas.  

“The Spirit of the Blue Deer.”

The Huicholes lives centre around ancient rituals and tradition, everything from planting corn to embroidering clothes, all done in a sacred way, their artwork alive with their experience of the Divine. The Wixárika (meaning “the healing people” in their native Huichol language) are known for their colorful clothing and famous for their vivid and elaborately designed ‘yarn paintings’ and beadwork. Together their cosmology and shamanic tradition form and define a unique and highly structured way of life, which is expressed in every facet of their lives.  

“Visions of our Ancestors.”

Their distinctive visionary art, in the form of these yarn paintings, embroidered clothing, bags, beaded gourds, masks, jewelry, and sculpture, all derives from their shamanic visions whose symbols form the basis of their work and their lives. The work is all hand-made by individual artists who are taught by their elders, and who then pass on the artistic techniques to their children. And so it goes, from generation to generation. Originally all the artwork was made as “offrendas”, prayer offerings to the Spirits left at places of power along the Pilgrimage route. 

“An Ancient 400 mile Pilgrimage.”

The “mara’akame”, the shaman, still leads pilgrims on a yearly journey retracing the path of the Gods and Goddesses when they first appeared in this middle world and travelled on a sacred pilgrimage to find its centre. The Pilgrimage culminates in a night-long ceremony around ‘Tatewari’, Grandfather Fire, a meditative retreat during which shamanic plant medicine ceremony using a button shaped cactus called peyote or ‘hikuri’, induces a visionary state by which the Wixárika People find their lives and the power, the ‘kupuri’, to follow their heart path to completion.

FAQS

Get All Of Your Questions Answered.

 

What is in the Ayahuasca brew?

The Ayahuasca that we use adheres to the highest standards of purity and ethicality of which we are capable, and by the standards to which we hold ourselves. Brewed from ethically sourced plants from the Peruvian Amazon, our brews will contain only Ayahuasca vine and one of two DMT admixtures: Chacruna and/or Chaliponga. We can guarantee that our brews never contain the dangerous admixture datura (toé), nor any other admixtures.

Who is the Shaman?

We are a traditional-modern project who embrace the new way with the old way simultaneously. The traditional medicine people, curanderos/curanderas, healers, or shamans will hail from the numerous indigenous tribes and local villages that we will visit along the journey path during the Sacred Mythic Journeys themselves- there, they have practiced this medicine path traditionally, generation after generation for millennia.

Our modern-day shaman on all sacred mythic journeys will be Marc “Kumooja Banyan Tree” Shackman. Kumooja has 9 years of experience working with sacred plants and indigenous ceremonies around the world. He has worked with and learned from the Huichol Indians of Mexico, the Shipibo of the Amazon, and the Q’ero of the Andes. Please click here for more information.

What is purging and what is it like?

The purgative (can be compared with a vomiting type release) effect of Ayahuasca and San Pedro is one of the most beautiful aspects to these medicines. Beyond the physical benefits of expelling toxins and harmful substances from the body, these medicines allow the participant to purge out emotional and energetic trauma. 

However, many sensationalist news articles and journalists often hype up the experience by saying that one “vomits for hours.” This is most certainly not most of the time true. While it IS possible to feel nauseous for hours and have difficulty purging, (which we refer to as experiencing a “block”) most drinkers find that once they do purge, they soon feel much better, physically, and most definitely, energetically. Many people commonly gratify that they feel “lighter” after the purge. Often, the purge is over in just a matter of minutes.

What items should I bring? What items do people usually forget?

The General Basics of What to bring With You

• light summer clothes for warm weather – shorts,underwear, t-shirts, pants, swimming suit.
• thick warm clothes for cold nights – fleece, socks, thermal underwear, gloves, hat
• wind jacket (water resistant with hood), long fast-drying pants
• rain poncho
• a sun hat and sunglasses
• strong trekking shoes or boots, sandals/flip-flops
• flashlight
• camera/personal music player
• sun cream/block
• insect repellent
• first aid kit
• notebook and pens
• an open mind and an open heart 
• warm (4 season) sleeping bag, comfortable roll mat, and travel pillow
• Extra thin warm lightweight blanket

We recommend that you bring a headlamp. Headlamps are much more handy (and harder to misplace) than a traditional flashlight. We recommend that you bring some small, personal, sacred ceremonial items. Crystals, sacred necklaces, objects of power. It is usually quite helpful to have such an object, which can provide a sense of grounding, protection and familiarity. For those who wish to record their experiences and visions, a journal is an excellent item to bring.

Do I need to bring food?

All food will be taken care of for you. We are able to accommodate most any kind of food allergy or dietary preference. We recommend that you avoid bringing your own food, since the food we will provide you will be energetically tuned and prepared to allow you to get the most possible out of your shamanic plant medicine experience.

What do I wear to the Native American Sweat Lodge?

You will need to wear a swimsuit for the sweat lodge. 

Can I bring my camera?

Yes, this is allowed as long as it doesn’t become a distraction.

I have a question that was not listed here, where can I ask that?

Thank you for your sincere interest in the healing work we are doing. Please feel free to email us using the contact page here.

What do I bring? How do I prepare?

Please be sure to read our ‘How To Prepare’ For Your Ceremony section by clicking here.

What do you recommend me to eat before the retreat?

Please be sure to read our Dietary Guidelines section, by clicking here.

Can I attend the retreat while I’m on medications?

Drinking shamanic plant medicines, especially Ayahuasca, while certain pharmaceutical chemicals from medications are present in the system can be dangerous. Therefore we ask all participants to be free from pharmaceutical medications at least a month prior to attending a retreat. Certain diagnoses such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or heart problems can also be a warning sign. Please be sure to read our Medical Guidelines on this page and to always disclose past and present conditions or health issues when filling out an application.

How many people will be attending the sacred mythic journey/international retreat?

In each journey with Heart Energy Medicine there will be a maximum of fourteen guests/participants and an average of four facilitators. We find that having not too big and not too small groups is actually enjoyed most by all of our past participants, as the balanced group dynamic plays a valuable factor in your healing process, and the amount of fun you experience. Whilst at the same time making sure there are no unnecessary distractions present, and the amount of attention each person can receive is kept to a maximum. Because after all, joy and laughter is the greatest medicine! 

Most importantly, we want to ensure there is a low guest:facilitator ratio, and aim the group sizes to be such that you can get all the personal support you need from the facilitators that are present. After leading journeys of all sizes, we find that this group size is most effective for your healing experience.

Where will I be picked up?

We recommend all guests to arrive a day early and stay at a hotel/hostel so to relax and recharge before the start of your journey or retreat . After you have secured your place and completed the registration process, we will send you a list with recommended hostels/hotels. On the first day of the journey/retreat we will all meet in one pre-designated location that we will confirm with you nearer to your journey/retreat start-date.

Can I get a private room?

Yes, special arrangements can be made for a private room, but this is by request only and for an additional charge per night. Please contact us for more information. However we recommend highly in order to maximize the experience for all of our international retreats/sacred mythic journeys participants that everybody uses our carefully selected shared accommodations. We always use a selection of reputable and comfortable shared accommodations, as to maintain a family and creative team atmosphere throughout your experience. Individual lodgings/rooms will therefore usually be shared by no more than between 2 and 4 people at a time, with shared bathroom and shower facilities. 

What does an Ayahuasca ceremony actually involve?

At nighttime the curanderos (shamans), facilitators and participants will meet at the maloka (temple). Before the ceremony starts, the curanderos will perform an opening prayer, cleanse and energetically protect the space inside and out, before serving everyone their medicine.

Then the lights go out and we sit in silence for some time as the medicine begins to work. As the curandero starts singing the Icaros (medicine songs) you will likely feel the energy of the medicine responding.

During the ceremony, the other facilitators will play beautiful, more traditional songs as well. When the ceremony is complete, usually after five or six hours, candles will be lit and with prayers and words of gratitude the ceremony is officially closed. All participants can enjoy fruit and share their experiences together. Afterwards, participants can choose to stay in the maloca to rest or return to their rooms for sleep.

Which plants will the Ayahuasca brew contain?

The tea is cooked with the Ayahuasca vine (banisteriopsis caapi) and the leaves of the Chacruna tree (psychotria viridis).

How many curanderos/shamans will be present during the ceremonies?

There will be a high ratio of facilitators : participants during the retreat. During the ceremonies there will usually be at least two curanderos (shamans) and two facilitators present. 

How long does a shamanic plant medicine ceremony last?

The shamanic plant medicine ceremonies will last six hours on average.

Can I ask for help in the ceremonies or must I be totally silent?

Of course, please don’t be afraid to ask for assistance, no matter what you may need. There are always helpers and staff available in the ceremony if you need help getting to the bathroom or are feeling overly distressed.

While it is good to work through purging and sit with your experience, if you are becoming overly scared or uncomfortable please ask for help.

This said, please refrain from talking or making too much noise during the ceremony. We understand sometimes things just come out, and during any cathartic (releasing) process, we welcome any sound that you need to make, but aside from this, please respect the noble silence of this sacred space and Icaros.

Can I drink Ayahuasca or Master Plants on my period?

Yes. Some Curanderos do not allow women to drink during this time, sometimes for cultural reasons but mainly because menstruating women are very sensitive, both physically and energetically.

On our journeys/retreats, almost always it will be possible for you to drink shamanic plant medicine during your period, but please let us know closer to the moment so we can monitor your dosage and care for you accordingly.

Can I drink Ayahuasca while pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you have never worked with Ayahuasca before we don’t allow you to participate in our retreats while pregnant for safety reasons.

If you have worked with this medicine before and are in the early stages of your pregnancy (pre third trimester), it is possible for you to drink a very small dose, but please let us know in advance.

If you are breastfeeding it is certainly possible to drink Ayahuasca but again please let us know in advance.

Do I have to wear white in shamanic plant medicine ceremonies? Are there any clothing requirements?

Our Curanderos and many of our staff choose to wear white in ceremony, because we believe white holds a cleansing, positive, healing and protective vibration.

We do not require you to wear any specific type of clothing or color during your shamanic plant medicine ceremonies. We do however recommend that you come to ceremony in loose, comfortable, clean clothing and be sure to have something warm as it can get cold. Having a headscarf or beanie handy can also be useful for managing your energy and warmth during the night.

If you have long hair we recommend you tie it back to avoid things getting messy when you are purging.

What else do I need for shamanic plant medicine ceremonies?

We recommend the following: a water bottle, mapacho (sacred tobacco) offerings, perhaps agua florida, rose water, lotus water (flower essences) if you are called, and we will give you some tissue for wiping your face as it is often necessary. Most importantly, a head torch or small LED flashlight is a must. Please see our How to Prepare page for more details.

Where will the San Pedro ceremony take place?

The San Pedro ceremony will take place outside, in a beautiful sacred site during the daytime.

What are the effects of San Pedro?

San Pedro (Huachuma) has the power to heal deep wounds from the past so that you can go on living your life in freedom, instead of drowning by past traumatic injuries/events. It is a Heart Opener. The cactus is used for healing inner afflictions: physical, mental and emotional. Participants that ingest this sacred cactus, that is boiled down to a brew, often feel a strong connection to nature, the universe and all living things.

How long do the effects of San Pedro last?

After ingesting the brew, it usually takes at least an hour before effects come up. The strongest part of the ceremony usually lasts 6-8 hours, while the effects in total can last up to 14 hours.

What is breathwork?

Breathwork is a psychotherapeutic, meditative activity that involves the conscious alteration of natural breathing patterns. Breathwork has been associated with other body-centric practices, such as yoga, Tai Chi, and Qigong.

What are the health benefits of breathwork?

Various forms of breathing exercises can serve as powerful natural healing modalities which can greatly assist in overcoming stress, anxiety, overthinking and depression. It can help lower blood pressure. It helps in grounding and embodying, strengthening the connection between the mind and the body.

If I don’t like the Ayahuasca & Master Plant Journey/Retreat, can I leave?

Every human has free will and ultimately this prevails, however, this is often very emotionally confronting work and at times people do feel they want to quit mid-way and leave the journey/retreat.

By coming here you are agreeing to our participant guidelines and commitments and we will support you in any way we can if you feel the need to leave if things get too challenging.

However, it must be said, during this type of healing work, there are many egoic and energetic structures within you that are coming up to the surface to be released. Because this isn’t always easy, it may leave you wanting to leave if you are not fully willing to face what is within you that needs to be let go of. If you leave at this point, these egoic and energetic structures that were triggered, will often have a greater hold on you, and if you leave, it’s common that things will actually be worse than before you came.

So it is important that before applying to one of our sacred mythic journeys/international retreats, that you really check in with yourself, and ask yourself if you are fully willing to look within, to cleanup all that no longer serves you. Only if you are able to completely do that, and commit to staying, not to us, but to yourself, would we recommend that you apply to any of our tours.

No refunds are available if you decide to leave at any point before the end of your sacred mythic journey/international retreat. If you feel you are not receiving something that we have said would be offered on the tours, please let us know so we can try and resolve this situation.

If you have any other questions that were not listed here, please contact us and we will be happy to answer them for you.

COMMUNITY

Our Non-Profit Organization – Native Earth Keepers

“Kupuri” is a beautiful word from the ancient language of the Mexican Wixárika Indians, meaning ‘the power to follow your heart path to completion. Inspired by this word Kupuri Native Roots Foundation was born in 2011, which then was renamed and became Native Earth Keepers in 2014.

10% of the funds raised from all of our Sacred Mythic Journeys each year go directly to the Native Earth Keepers hand-picked selection of global projects within our host countries and indigenous village community regions.

“Connection is Everything”

Indigenous peoples around the world are crying out for the recognition of their identities, ways of life and rights to traditional lands, territories and natural resources. Yet their rights are continuously being violated. Indigenous peoples are now inarguably among the most disadvantaged and vulnerable groups of people in the world today.

“Your Energy and Support is well received.”

Worldwide indigenous and tribal peoples are facing complex threats to their survival as distinct peoples. Not only are they also confronted with the dispossession of their lands, resources, and traditional knowledge, but physical persecution as well.

“Ancient Wisdom Lost.”

Traditional knowledge of medicinal plants is being taken by multinational companies, while traditional songs and designs are being exploited and exported without fairness to their roots.

“Struggling for Survival.”

Political and military genocide of indigenous populations is also a major threat in some parts of the world. Often these peoples are simply moved out of the way in force by their governments.

“The Land is Sacred.”

Indigenous peoples are also being dispossessed of their ancestral homelands to make way for mines, dams, logging concessions and tourism complexes. In many cases, they do not even receive any compensation for their lost lands.

“The Indigenous Message.”

Native Earth Keepers actively supports indigenous populations. Creating a selection of community projects, positive open spaces, and opportunities to more enable these indigenous peoples to share their sacred message, traditions, artwork, and ancient wisdom with the rest the world.
