Ayahuasca


Ayahuasca originally meant creeper of the dead. Indigenous Indians used it in order to connect with the wisdom of their ancestry. Today, this ancient tradition comes out of its hiding in the jungles of the Amazon to spread all over the world. In this era of awakening it too, similar to other precious ancient practices, e.g. Hermetic Tibetan Buddhism, has to adapt to local customs, as well as contemporary people’s minds and their needs. This is why we use ayahuasca in a way that helps release trauma and its heavy baggage of the past; so the quality of life here and now can increase. Life itself can be fuller, enlightened with the light of consciousness.

There are four contexts of ayahuasca usage:

  1. Traditional South American shamanism. It works great for indigenous Indians, but it might be very harmful for the western mind set. It’s extremely dualistic (good vs. evil), full of foreign symbolism and beliefs, often referring to black and white magic.
  2. Brazilian religious churches like Santo Daime, Barquinha or Uniao do Vegeta (UDV). Established at the very beginning of the 20th century, they adopted ayahuasca usage to their belief systems as one of its core practices (“sacrament”). The most popular is Santo Daime, a mixture of shamanism, Christianity and Ubanda – an old school Afro-Brazilian religion with African roots.
  3. Hybrid, modern, practice adjusted to our geographical regions as well our western minds, combining psychology (Grof, Jung, Osho, psychotherapy based on working with physical body, Buddhism, transcendental meditation) with traditional shamanism (icaro) and music (guitar, Tibetan singing bowls and gongs etc.)
  4. Experimental psychonautic experiences, done on one’s own, without out supervision or structure.

(Going) Beyond shamanic context

We’re boundlessly grateful and we want to show our admiration to the endless number of shamans and healers (curandero) from South America working before us; thanks to whom we obtained the deep knowledge of these magnificent plants. Nonetheless, while honoring their work by staying true to some of the rituals, we are aware that now it is our time to develop this incredibly spiritual technology for the greater good of humanity. We work very hard on keeping up the root and core meaning of the original practice, while slightly changing its context, allowing us to take full advantage of this process. There is no arguing that the mind of a contemporary westerner is much different than the mind of an indigenous Indian in its general form. We have more thoughts; we are more educated and more independent as individuals; we need more space. A shaman fulfils the role of a father -teacher; he is a businessman, a psychologist, a healer, an adviser. Thanks to his experience and knowledge, the whole tribe “sticks together” and is able to survive and maintain its structure in an often extremely dangerous environment. On the other hand, we do not need prohibitions and injunctions to stay safe, we want to explore our true nature and realize the Truth. In ourselves we want to access and recognize a shaman, a teacher and guru.

It’s a waste of time to spend one’s life fulfilling the expectations of others - like your family, society, teachers or gurus. It’s a waste of time to follow restrictions, prohibitions and injunctions. It’s time to come out from the cave. It’s a time of absolute freedom to be yourself. It’s our time.
