  • 3 Ceremonies with Shamans

    During week of the Conference, there are three days that are "free days/nights" giving you ample time to explore in and around Iquitos and three evenings where you can be in Ceremony with the Shaman of your choice. The Shamans will be holding ceremonies in various locations around Iquitos. Some will be holding ayahuasca ceremonies and some will be holding San Pedro ceremonies. Payment for Ceremonies goes directly to the Shaman's you choose to be with. While we provide you with "free time" to be in Ceremony, they are not a function of the Conference.

  • Post and Pre Conference Programs:

    Vine of the Soul Intensives will have pre and post conference programs in the Ceremonial Chapel/maloco justs 20 minutes up the Itaya river from Iquitos. The Shamana Adela Navas will host three ceremonies with ayahuasca, flower and clay baths, one San Pedro ceremony during the day, excellent food, optional session with the bone setter, Maria Louisa.

the 11th International Amazonian Shamanism Conference

july 11th - 17th, 2015

 

The Conference location has been changed. The Conference will now be held in the theatre of UNAP (National University of the Peruvian Amazon).

Direction is Pevas 520. The University theatre has been completely remodeled, comfortable seats, stage, lighting, airconditioning.

Within the mythologies handed down from the mountains of the Andes to the jungles of the Amazon is the same prognostication: The circle has come round - the time is now. We are now witnessing a move back to the magic and etherealness of our ancestors, and the rebirth of Shamanism. It is in that realm that we shall ultimately heal all our wounds, for it is there that the soul, the body, and the mind are one and can be cured as a whole, rather than in parts.

Perhaps in the last five hundred years the focus of our world, on industralization, technology and progress, has moved too fast. As for me, I have taken a giant step back, together with the knowledge of the present, to the medicine forgotten, to the curative powers of the plants and their spirits, to the healers who work through nature cleansing the body and who, through the all-encompassing divination's of the spirits and the Gods, purify the soul. For in that place we heal not only our physical selves, but we continually connect with the universal life force carried within each of us and shared by all. The more each and every one of us, throughout the World, understands this principle, and the sooner we realize that a sickness of the body, mind or spirit is within the ether that we all share, the more likely that we, as a whole, will begin to live in health, peace and harmony.
