Consciousness and the Spirits of Nature
March 28 – April 4, 2004
Presented by Heart of the Initiate
We welcome you to a series of two one-week workshops, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting along the coast of Bahia, located approximately 700 miles north of Rio de Janeiro. During each week we will be hosting three ayahuasca healing sessions along with lectures on this plant medicine, it’s history, and healing properties on the body. We have found that “the medicine” and the heart opening process work together synergistically, allowing us to very quickly move past our self imposed limitations. We will spend the week exploring and opening the subtle doorway through the heart energy and into the inner trans-dimentional worlds long forgotten by mankind. This is the path back to remembering your true divinity and awakening of the true self. As we work through our old, limiting patterns, we begin to heal and reclaim our lost power.
Guest Facilitators and Staff:
- Ralph Miller – Respected facilitator Ralph Miller utilizes the gifts of our Earth Mother to awaken the Truth and Proof of our real selves. His gentle, quieting stillness creates a soothing and safe environment necessary to reach the depth of our inner being. It is here that you are awakened to the true you; opening your eyes and mind to the many hidden dimensions that surround us.
- Zoe7 Seven – Zoe Seven is an international lecturer, author, and cartographer of altered states of consciousness. His main area of research is ‘techno-shamanism’ – the fusion of shamanic psychoactive plants and compounds together with brainwave technology devices. He is the author of INTO THE VOID and has has written for several entheogen and neuro-technology related magazines.
- Silvia Polivoy – With a Master’s degree in clinical psychology, Silvia Polivoy has worked extensively in the Peruvian and the Brazilian Amazon with ayahuasca and San Pedro, where she’s initiated and trained in shamanism and the ritual use of ayahuasca by a Shipibo shaman.
We have chosen a beautiful and comfortable beach front property on the coast of Bahia just south of the fishing village of Itacar. We will have exclusive and private use for our stay and includes 10 bungalows, a restaurant, which we’ll have full use of, and swimming pool. Creating it’s own little village, the buildings are individually designed and constructed of local raw materials and carefully inserted into the rainforest. Some of the buildings are almost 3 meters high offering stunning views of the sea and surrounding jungle, giving the sensation of being in treehouses. A shallow and gentle Atlantic Ocean, which in its low tide reveals up to 200 meters of nearly deserted white sand beach and natural pools, meanders by, providing us a place to relax and play.
