I't was one of them trips where i had my best #wave
, day after day, and I got to #travel
a country I'd wanted to visit since I first heard about #MachuPichu
. Amazing as this ancient site is, it can't compare to my discoveries with the Shipibo people ❤️✨🙏🏼
One night in San Bartolo I got invited to a #seremony
. Without any concepts about what i was getting into. The juice had little affect on me and it all seemed weird. After the ceremony I inquired the #Shaman
about his village and if i could visit.
A week or so later Enrique and i hopped a buss, crossed the Andes, then boated for 5hours to the village of Paraiso. I spent a week there, with two #friends
from SB, Enrique and Javier, the three Shamans Javier, Ramon and Andres, and the people of Paraiso. We ate pirayas and rice with tomatoes, fried bananas and greens for every meal.
We walked in the jungle learning about plants, brewed #Ayhuasca
, went swiming in the river and hung out with the kids. First time i evere saw someone with a bee on a leash.
Every afternoon, young menn (us included) gathered for a game of #football
⚽. The place truly lives up to its name.
In ceremonies there where us three dudes and the three #Curanderos
. The Ikaros had gone from weird noise to #beautiful
melodies and thumping #trance
beats as the shamans worked on us. They would lock on to #pain
inside me and move it up through my #body
so I could vomit it out, revealing the energetic structure of "espiritos malos" in the plastic bucket. I felt relief beyond belief and tears streaming down my cheeks. We had good laughs, I saw deamons, I danced in extacy and lay on the floor breathing like an animal, conected to the surrounding #jungle
The last night I was shown so that I understand the power of her #medicin
. It took 6years before she invited me for #seremony
again. ❤️ 🙏🏼❤️ "old stories no longer define us, the past is not relevant... Who are you NOW?" ~@akitching
