"The name of the course refers to shamans, the medicine men and women of the Amazon who function as doctors, healers, advisors and community leaders. This course gives students a vivid, full-immersion experience in the forest, learning not only from me, but from guides who have lived their entire lives in that environment. "
"Sacred spots can produce peak spiritual experiences for those whose intention it is to open to the energies that infuse the area. Travelers on pilgrimages experience visions, heightened consciousness, transcendence, heart opening, and healing. The transformative nature of the energies ignites the higher mind, soul and spirit of the individual and opens a window into unseen dimensions."
It was very hard for me to get a feel of what it was going to be like to be on the mountain before the trip. I had many very basic questions that left me wondering what the experience would be like and what kind of preparation I needed to undertake. I hope that this post will help answer those questions for others preparing to take this trip.
